So I haven't posted in a LONG time but i was reading an article earlier with Junior Dos Santos stating Cain didn't prove he was the better 'fighter' i'll attach the article. this got me thinking most of JDS's argument was that Cain wouldn't engage with him or stand and bang so to say. But i personally don't think this makes him a worse fighter, he won the fight, and was clearly winning in every area that mattered. A comparison became evident between that fight and Condit vs Diaz, where I personally thought Condit won. But the argument was made that Condit didn't stand and engage with Diaz.  Basically I was wondering what actually constitutes the better fighter I believe both Cain and Condit were the better fighters, they imposed their gameplan whilst still dealing damage, and to me if you can make your opponent fight your fight and do more damage, you are the better fighter.

It is also one of the reasons why i think Ben Askren is actually so interesting to watch fight. His wrestling is at such a high level he makes trained professionals look helpless, and eventually exhausts them. To me that is realistic if you can't get him off you, he is better.

Anyway does anybody else think that way or is JDS correct in saying Cain wouldn't engage in open combat and is not the better fighter? (it's also very possible he's keeping the public engaged in the feud to eventually try and get another shot at Cain)

Is there anyone who has any knowledge on multi level models also known as multi level regression analysis? I'm writing a specialist essay on the use of this method of analysis particularly in evolutionary psychology.

if anyone knows of any papers that explain the analysis or have used it i would be extremely grateful.

This is my friends undergrad project on social media usage and personality types, thought this might be a fitting place to post it. i'm sure she would be very grateful if people could take part it takes about 10 minutes.
 
Hi to anyone out there! :]
My dissertation is focused on personality and social media usage. If you have any spare time, I would love it if you could take part!
This is the link to the questionnaire: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1nG24-i5RztX70YUGsCsiUfI3NzSrDNirf_6KDSHxi1I/viewform
Any help, from participating in the study to sharing it, would be greatly appreciated!

so what did everyone make of the final strikeforce?
standouts we're Souza and Saffediene for me, wasn't too impressed with Cormier he did dominate but it was nothing spectacular.

Not sure if any of you have seen this, but i only just watched it and it's really interesting to see the story of jon jones. When UFC 151 was cancelled i thought it was ridiculous that Jones wouldn't fight an out of shape middleweight coming off a loss.

but it's easy to forget how strongly the UFC was pushing Jones as a poster boy and so quickly threw him under the bus ( i do agree that greg jackson is the problem telling jones what he can and can't do and his gameplans which went horrifically wrong with clay guida)

I did find myself disliking Jones partially because i did believe that he was fake and if he was genuine everyone would just accept him even if he was arrogant, it's so odd to have arguably the best fighter to ever compete so strongly hated i wonder if it will change as he fights more. I became a lot more fond of him after the Belfort fight thoguht he showed a lot of heart in that fight.

what do you guys think about the whole scenario?

Ryan,

This is probably the most thoughtful and still pointed examinations of the 151 controversy that I've read. I was pretty appalled at the time with how Dana went after him but I've been reading Eugene Robinson's FIGHT recently and what you said above about what a man does/should do when his integrity is challenged really resonates. There's a lot of truth to the old samurai ethos of walking on to the battlefield (or into the Octagon) with the mindset that one is already dead so that you can fight to the level that it takes to survive. Thanks for sharing...

Yeah Im a big Edgar fan, but Aldo earned this one. It was much closer however that score indicated. Should have been more like a split decision win... my 2 cents

just watched some of these, really helps build the hype for overeem vs. silva

what's everyone's opinions now he's relicensed? from what i read he submitted 6 clean tests himself in the past 6 months and passed two random tests (one was in december can't remember the other date off the top of my head) by the NSAC. i don't know uch about steroid cycling or anything but that seems like a rpetty clean record?

What's everyone's thoughts on Rousey being given the belt? Do you think it should've been a fight for the inaugural champ? After all Ian Mccall was the No.1 ranked flyweight in the world and he had to fight in the flyweight tournament.

+Lone Wolf I try to be one of those guys even though I still cringe when I watch a WMMA match because part of me still says, "This isn't right."  I'm learning to respect and appreciate the talented female  fighters who enter their own cages and test their mettle. Julie Kedzie is one of my favorites.

With regards to Ronda, I need her to accept that as the face of WMMA, she has to find ways to disprove the stereotype men have of her and her sport.  She's got to become a role model for young girls and not some sideshow for the UFC.

It's Dana White' s job to help her.

In addition to getting her a PR agent, I think he needs to keep her from photoshoots like ESPN's body issue.  Yeah, we can all appreciate her beauty, but she's a fighter, not a ring girl.  Strikeforce exploited Ronda's sex appeal for ratings, and I pray that Dana will show her the respect that she deserves.

Besides, Dana's got bigger problems with his signing of Ronda Rousey.  WMMA is so nascent that there really aren't enough fighters to legitimately challenge for the title and keep our attention. Meisha Tate, Sarah Kaufmann, and even Liz Carmouche aren't enough to make an entire division.  

If WMMA is going to make a run at legitimacy, it's going to come with great investment in Invicta FC, and I think Dana is well ahead of me on that one.

I accept that yes, I'm delusional if I think that this will actually happen, but hey, one can dream, right?
