#878757 Joe Rogan says UFC fighters are lucky LeBron James doesn't join the UFC

Posted by Mentor on 12 January 2019 - 07:22 PM

Lesnar got an absolute gift of a run to the title.

 

Personally i think that is when the UFC started to fuck up major time. Lesnar was 2-1 when he got a title shot, he had zero major wins up till that point. When he did win the title, it was over a 47 year old Couture, who was on his last legs. In his defense, after winning the title he did have 2 big wins over Carwin (who was a beast at that time) and he revenged his win over Mir. 

 

Rumors are that he could get a title shot against Cormier, which is a total joke. Lesnar has not won a fight in MMA since mid 2010, he went 0-2-1 since then.

#878361 VOTING Alliance of the Year 2018

That rank thing is highly overrated, I have not fought in 6 months and i am still ranked 133. In fact, i have went up 5 spots this month. The opp rank is also very misleading because it is taking the average rank of the fighters (or managers) you went up against, so even a few QFC's can screw your rank a lot. 

 

Great managers have great fighters, so the question here is, how many of your fighters reached top 100 (especially those you created, not the ones you picked up from FA, that were already top fighters), how many of those fighters won things, especially in top level orgs or tournaments. If you are a can crusher with a top 10 ranking, to me it means absolutely nothing (other than the ranking system is screwed up). 

 

So, make a list of the fighters you managed and we will see.

#878352 VOTING Breakthrough Manager Of The Year 2018

Posted by Mentor on 06 January 2019 - 11:42 AM

Ibrahim stepped up this year because he started to fight in some of the top orgs (CEC, GAMMA, Dare), 2017 he was mostly doing low end fights in 2017. I do not consider John as having a break out year, he has been a top notch manager for years now, he simply was away in 2017 i think. Theksit was good this year, but i would not say he had a break out year, he is still fighting in the mid tier orgs. 

 

Also I do not really care that much about the ranking thing because that is pretty much flawed, it penalizes losses at higher end fights and rewards inactivity.

John Coffey has had a fantastic year as well, but i remember he was a very good manager way back in the day, i think Ibrahim pushed it to the next level for the first time this year.

#878288 Rate the last movie you saw ...

Posted by Mentor on 06 January 2019 - 12:30 AM

Bird Box 6.75/10

 

I think the acting in this film basically took it to the next level, i think the budget in this film was way below the rating, the did not invest much into anything. I think Sandra Bullock is getting better with age.

#878186 2018 Awards Rules

How can Rocket Bob Frankels be nominated for both 265 and 265+? He had 14 fights at 265+ and only 4 at 265. It should be illegal to be nominated for 2 awards in 2 divisions unless you had a minimum of 9 fights in that particular division. I guess you could lower that to something like 7 or 8 fights, but 4 fights? That is clearly a joke.

#877627 Convicted Inc - Hall Of Fame

Posted by Mentor on 02 January 2019 - 09:17 AM

I would not say there is no Elite managers, there most certainly are simply the game overall is smaller now and the Elite is proportionally smaller. We also lack that true dominant #1 since David Brent retired in July. The biggest difference is that there proportionally much more mid tier managers, mostly because the game has stayed the same and the general tactics and strategies used are now commonplace. 

 

Without knowing the exact numbers, i would say the top end was always around 1-2% (that was about 40-50 managers before, but now it is about 20). I think the mid tier is about the same in quantity (around 200-250 managers) and there is much less lower end managers as well.
