    I find it HILARIOUS how Forrest Griffon (sp?) endorses Xyience as if it were the secret to his success, even though in an interview in TUF he said that he was living in his coach's living room he was so poor.

    I'm not saying he's bad for doing it, I'm saying the Xyience people and anybody who buys it because of Forrest is a fucking dumbass.

    Let me break it down for you:

    Dirt poor athlete + huge endorsement deal = SUCCESS!

    Do those three really get paid more than Fedor/Crocop/Silva/Bob Sapp? Because apparently those guys, especially Sapp, make a fucking killing doing endorsements that aren't even remotely related to MMA.

    Knightmare might be right but the general rule stands true: Pride pays more, better exposure, better talent pool, and there's no fucking way Fedor's going to move to the UFC when he's got such a sweet deal over in Japan just to start from ground up in a shittier organisation.
    Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all **** like that! -theoutsider

    Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

    The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

    dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

    Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
    I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
    what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

    Knightmare is an idiot, plain and simple, and completely wrong.

    As for Xyience...I don't know why everybody hates on it. They're using EXACTLY the same promotion methods as EVERY COMPANY ON EARTH, and the product AT LEAST ACTUALLY DOES SOMETHING. That doesn't mean it's better than other supplement brands, but at least it's a fucking supplement and not Coke or Pepsi.

    Fo serios. I used to like football when I was a kid, but I just can't pronounce Ronaldo or Ronaldinho with an R anymore. It just feels wrong.
    Silly brazilians have corrupted me.

    Now, that's almost as sad as believing that the UFC is as big, pays as much, or has as good fighters as Pride.
    But just almost, obviously.

    And they pay fighters to endorse it. I personally don't use any supplements other than a multivitamin, but I at least appreciate the fact that they offer fighters healthy endorsement contracts.

    I don't hate the product so much as I am nauseated by the stupid, contrived name and the thought of bilking millions of starry-eyed kids out of their hard-earned money for an over-priced, over-rated product that has Chuck Liddell hitting a heavy bag in the middle of what appears to be a strip-mining operation.

    Yes, I am a cynical, jaded, grumpy old ****.

    I hate it because they say "brought to you by Xyience" after every single solid strike in teh UFC.

    They'll be like...
    "Ooh, big right hand!"
    "...brought to you by Xyience. Extreme suppliments for extreme results!"
