any csrs here studying martial arts or mma?
so, Im, pretty pumped for this. Got my tickets and am very glad I jumped early as theyve now all sold out.
The Main card -
NOGUEIRA v VELASQUEZ
SILVA v BISPING
STEVENSON v SOTIROPOULOS
JARDINE V BADER
ROTHWELL V CRO COP
SINOSIC v HASEMAN
I would think it a good chance that Jamie Te Huna and Anthony Perosh will appear on the undercard, not sure theyd face each other again though.
Very much looking forward to Nogueira vs. Velasquez ...
Any other CSrs going to this event?

I wish i was attending this vent!
I studied Jujitsu and judo as a youngster but never followed through with it in my adult life. Im thinking i might now though? I had a laugh
Have fun guys!...catch a tooth for me :D
AM son is hoping to go..... But time will tell.Originally Posted by 272E352C272A224F0 link=1260993470/0#0 date=1260993470
Has a Platinum seat if I recall... His mates said they would go and then pulled at the last minute.. Thus is up for 3 other tickets (Bronze) and the accommodation etc.. Thus am attempting to sell the 3 on evil-bay..
He hopes to recoup enough, to cover the extra costs he is now having to pay..
I am not happy about the prices... But they are his tickets and not having a job means... He is caught between a rock and a hard place..
As for Mates... Well. Enough said... Wont be the first it has happened to and nor will he be the last..
Id love to go but Sydney is too far away.
Ive studied a few martial arts--Judo, Karate, Aikido, Tai Chi---now in the midst of the definitely non-polite, non-art Krav Maga and really enjoying it.
Soooo... dont get on the wrong side of Greg unless you want your jugular ripped out or groin pulled I had a laughOriginally Posted by 52677072427A6778747971150 link=1260993470/6#6 date=1261044515
Thats one full on martial art!
We dont teach jugular ripping until you are training for your 3rd dan.

Thats a pretty decent card......woulda been a great chance for an entry into the 10,000th CSer hazchem. Take a sign along, ill keep an eye out for it when I grab the telecast.
Yep, its a hot card alright! just keep your eyes peeled right at cageside, Ill be there with some kind of identifier!Originally Posted by 212D283C25293E3E297C7A4C0 link=1260993470/11#11 date=1261090116
Show is going to be broadcast for FREE on ONE HD ...
Sweet as. I dont have HD, but will be grabbing the broadcast a day or so later. Ill be keeping an eye out for the signage, thatll be a nice shot for snobbers.Originally Posted by 565F445D565B533E0 link=1260993470/12#12 date=1261091016
Im really looking forward to this as well. There must be close to 20 guys from the MMA club that I train at flying up to Sydney for it. I wanted to get gold tickets but everything sold out so quickly I could only get my hands on silver.
Used to study some wing chun and taichi.Originally Posted by 242B311A2B242E2021262A23232020450 link=1260993470/1#1 date=1260994503
Only wish I knew a good local teacher in each now :(
Im a big UFC fan. Its the only decent thing all these new tele channels have delivered. Unless youre into basketball and re-runs of some 1980 NASCAR race. I tried to get tickets for the Sydney show but they sold out SO quickly!
Heaps of martial arts - Shito karate since 1991 then switched to Kyokushin karate two years ago and loving it. Also two years of judo in high school and have been taking boxing classes part time for the last two years. The thing is, theres so much to learn about the human body and movement, and martial arts is an excellent way of learning this.
I am also discovering the complexities of making a good cup of coffee. I will be studying this my entire life.
cant agree with you more! Having UFC wired to watch on ONE every week is great! Probably worth keeping an eye on 7Two as well, I think theyve shown some Strikeforce here and there. Now if only someone would pick up WEC, Sengoku, Dream and Bellator when it starts up again I can stop burning bandwith on it all!Originally Posted by 424953444A434355565443555549260 link=1260993470/16#16 date=1264027896
