On another note, Blake indeed fucked up his knee :(
Hughes - I was not disappointed with Blake’s fight. He went out there and gave it his all, but you just cannot help an injury like that. I do know that he had to have surgery after the show, so something was definitely wrong with his knee.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

edit: on an unrelated note, I hate century with a passion and just found out on the UFC's website that they're switching to Century as the provider of their gloves. What the hell is that about? http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=news.detail&gid=8194

I noticed that too.... century gloves? why not combat sports or something else?
10/11/2007 12:36pm, #24in Hughes defense, what do you expect him to say? "****, that was a good pick...you're fucked bro" ?
Yeah, that knee thing was wierd. Hightower was definitely throwing some bombs boht on the feet and after Blake went down. Looked like his legs buckled from being rocked, to me. Still, it appears he does have a real knee problem too.
As for the ribs, I effed mine up before I competed in my one wrestling tournament. Really hurt, and I could hardly bend over to tie my shoes. (Never went to the Dr., though). So I can see how an injury like that, combined with a gimpy knee could really affect someone's game.

And hey, what's wrong with Century??? I have a pair of 12oz century gloves and they are fantastic. Fantastic big poofy pillows on the ends of my arms. They were pretty cheap though...

All joking aside, you gotta figure they have higher end or "pro" stuff. I can't imagine they're dolling out the $19.99 gloves I bought at the Big 5 to the guys on TUF.

They do have some high quality Gi products, my gi pants are Century and they are awesome. Drawstring + Elastic bad, a back pocket, and very very very durable.
Every pair of century sparring gear I bought for TKD disintegrated within 12 months though. The 2 pairs of 12oz boxing gloves I got are ok, but by no means high quality. They are good enough for me to punch the bag with now and again, but I can tell that the inside is already starting to come apart and with heavy wear there are going to fall apart completely.
So, I sure as hell HOPE they have a pro line that's not made out of crap like that....

I don't know about gloves, but in a lot of sports they take a high-end bespoke product and slap the sponsors logo on.Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.
