Alright, I don't have HBO (don't really want it), and I haven't kept up with the discussion, but what happened with Mark Kerr?

Kicked ass, got married, got drunk, started losing, THE END. Much cheaper than cable, dontcha think? I didn't see it either, but that is pretty much the synopsis I recieved from the guys who did.
"Go cry about it Vargas. Aren't you late for your shift at McDonald's?""I had once talked to Billy Conn, the boxer, about professionals versus amateurs - specifically street fighters. One had always heard rumors of champions being taken out by back-alley fighters. Conn was scornful. "Aw, it's like hitting a girl," he said. "They're nothing."

has anyone seen his debt UFC fight when he KOs his chubby and out-matched opponent with one knee in the first 10-20 seconds of the fight?"Training = pain." - I said that.
PizDoff when drunk: "I'm actually MOST pissed that my target for the evening got drink...then I gave her my Bullshido Canada hoodie like a gentleman because she was outside with not much on...did I mention she barfed twice when I got our jackets...steaming barf is kinda fascinating..." - PizDoff.

I thought Kerr seemed like a genuinely nice guy, and was a great athlete (probably with the help of of lots of pharmaceuticals) back when he was destroying people in the UFC and early Prides.
The thing about the documentary is you see this monster in the ring during fights, but the doc showed how beat up he always was outside the ring, and he was dating this complete PSYCHO chick who totally messed with his head, at one point showing up at his gym while he was training with Bas Rutten and Ricco Rodriguez for the Pride Grand Prix, which was supposed to be his big comeback.
Basically he comes of as kind of insecure and very codependant on this wacko alcoholic drama queen and it screws up his career. He ends up getting married to her at the end which almost made me vomit. The good news is, among many funny posts Bas Rutten made about the whole situation at sherdog.com, he said they got divorced after like 2 months.
The best part about the doc was seeing all the behind the scenes stuff about MMA, how these guys train, how they interact with each other before and after fights, the friendships they have within the sport, and lots of cool cameos. Definitely worth watching if you're a fan of MMA/NHB.

And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

Moti Horenstein? What's the story?
**The most miraculous power that can verifiably be attributed to "chi" is its ability to be all things to virtually all people, depending on what version of the superstition they are attempting to defend at any given moment.**Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog
