    Glover admits overconfidence almost cost him 

    Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Light Heavyweight Championship contender Glover Teixeira earned his shot at the gold belt held by Brazilian compatriot Jon Jones beating Ryan Bader via technical knockout in the first round of their match at UFC Fight Night 28 last month but he is the first to admit that he came extremely close to letting that opportunity slip between his fingers.

    Before he landed the deadly combination that floored Bader and earned him the win, the Brazilian was actually rocked on the feet, something, he says never even saw coming. And speaking to a media outlet, he stated that it was a lesson that he will keep in his memory forever. He mentioned that he was really confident ahead of the fight, maybe a bit complacent even.

    Fedor Emelianenko is a Russian former Mixed Martial Artist and politician, often regarded as one of the greatest Mixed Martial Artists of all time. He was also very famous for his skills in judo and was an acclaimed sambist as well. Throughout his career, the Russian went on to win various accolades and tournaments across varying sports, winning the World Combat Sambo Championships on four separate occasions, was medalist in the Russian national Judo Championship and was also the 2004 PRIDE Grand Prix champion.

    The top Mixed Martial Arts media outlets and platforms have all hailed the Russian during and after his career and although analysts are divided over their opinion regarding Emelianenko, many consider him as the greatest Mixed Martial Artist of all time. He was undefeated for more than a decade in the sport and during this period, Fedor Emelianenko was widely regarded as the best Heavyweight fighter in the sport.

    Emelianenko began his career as a Mixed Martial Artist when he started to train for the sport in the Russian Top Team with the first couple of exponents from Russia to the RINGS promotion. And after some time, the Russian himself joined the RINGS promotion in Japan where he would go on to suffer the first defeat of his Mixed Martial Arts career, albeit a controversial one. He became the holder of the RINGS Heavyweight Championship before RINGS folded and he made his way to PRIDE.

    It was here that Fedor Emelianenko earned the most acclaim as a fighter and his unbeaten run earned him the moniker of The Last Emperor. After PRIDE, the Russian fought for various other promotions but he never actually joined the Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC, although he came very close to joining it on a couple of occasions as well.

    MMA Top 10 Pound-for-Pound Heavyweight 

    MMA Pound for PoundMy top 10 best pound for pound fighters for the past year has always been a heavyweight in the top of the list: Fedor Emelianenko convinced me of his Combatant Status No. 1 with his victory over Andrei Arlovski in January 2009 (I was upstairs Anderson Silva before that) and I have not changed my mind since.

    But it is quite unusual for a truck to be the best pound for pound fighter. In fact most of the book early for filing in the book of boxing are effectively excluded trucks. I was asked recently what Cain Velasquez should do to be considered a Top 10 pound for pound fighter, and it made me think about how to stack up truck in the pound for pound rankings .

    Part of what makes a great Fedor is that he has dominated the truck, much larger Brett Rogers and Tim Sylvia. At 230 pounds, he is a disadvantage when fighting guys who balloon up to 280 between fights and has been forced to reduce the limit to 265 pounds. But Fedor beat them anyway.

    Across the spectrum heavy Brock Lesnar. I Lesnar No. 2 on my investments of the language, but I would have a terribly hard time ranking Lesnar in my Top 10 pound-for-pound fighters. Even if Lesnar beat Fedor, it would really make Lesnar a Top-10 pound for pound fighter? Or would it simply say that Lesnar to be dehydrated to 265 for the route-ins, then enter the Octagon about 280, is simply a benefit too large to overcome for Fedor?

    This brings me to Velasquez. If I could see another heavyweight besides Fedor, which makes the top 10 pound for pound rankings, it would Velasquez. People sometimes talk of Velasquez, as a kind of physical monster, but it is really not as big as standard heavyweight: He weighed 242 pounds to 110 UFC, making him much less than Lesnar, and has also a rather large minor that Frank Mir and Shane Carwin. If Velasquez becomes UFC champion heavy weight of the biggest opponents, he would have a very good reason to be one of the Top 10 pound-for-pound fighters in the world.

    Who decide MMA victory? 

    Victory in a match is normally gained either by the judges’ decision after an allotted amount of time has elapsed, a stoppage by the referee (for example if a competitor can not defend himself intelligently) or the fight doctor (due to an injury), a submission, by a competitor’s cornerman throwing in the towel, or by knockout.

    Knockout (KO): as soon as a fighter becomes unconscious due to strikes, his opponent is declared the winner. As MMA rules allow ground fighting, the fight is stopped to prevent further injury to an unconscious fighter.

    Submission: a fighter may admit defeat during a match by:

    • a tap on the opponent’s body or mat/floor
    • a verbal announcement/verbal tap

    Technical Knockout (TKO)

    Referee stoppage: The ref may stop a match in progress if:

    • a fighter becomes dominant to the point where the opponent can not intelligently defend himself and is taking a lot of damage
    • a fighter appears to be unconscious from a submission hold or due to a strike
    • a fighter appears to have a significant injury such as a cut or a broken bone

    Doctor Stoppage: the referee will call for a time out if a fighter’s ability to continue is in question as a result of apparent injuries, such as a large cut. The ring doctor will inspect the fighter and stop the match if the fighter is deemed unable to continue safely, rendering the opponent the winner. However, if the match is stopped as a result of an injury from illegal actions by the opponent, either a disqualification or no contest will be issued instead.

    Corner stoppage: a fighter’s corner men may announce defeat on the fighter’s behalf by throwing in the towel during the match in progress or between rounds.

    Decision: if the match goes the distance, then the outcome of the bout is determined by three judges. The judging criteria are organization-specific.

    Forfeit: a fighter or his representative may forfeit a match prior to the beginning of the match, thereby losing the match.

    Disqualification: a “warning” will be given when a fighter commits a foul or illegal action or does not follow the referee’s instruction. Three warnings will result in a disqualification. Moreover, if a fighter is injured and unable to continue due to a deliberate illegal technique from his opponent, the opponent will be disqualified.

    No Contest: in the event that both fighters commit a violation of the rules, or a fighter is unable to continue due to an injury from an accidental illegal technique, the match will be declared a “No Contest”.

      Good information, although it’s important to note that corner stoppage is not allowed in all states, and often not in pro-fights…just amateur MMA fights.

    MMA Pound-for-Pound Fighters by UFC 

    The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S based MMA promotion. In 2009 They published a MMA Pound for Pound list. Today i am going to share that best MMA Pound for Pound fighters list with you. there are many few webs which published that list in 2009. thats why I decided to share with you guys the Best MMA Pound for Pound Fighters of 2009 by UFC

    10 – Brock Lesnar
    It’s hard to include Lesnar in the pound-for-pound discussion given his hulking physical dimensions, but something tells me that the reigning Heavyweight Champion would be a formidable lightweight contender if Rick Moranis happened to accidently hit him with the shrink ray.

    9 – Michael Bisping
    Bisping is only 29 and just coming into his prime as a fighter. His only loss in the UFC came via split decision to the undefeated “Sugar” Rashad Evans, and he’s currently on a three-fight win streak.

    8 – Matt Hughes
    Hughes is another fighter who’s past his prime, but still a legitimate threat to anybody he gets into the Octagon with. Hughes still has the strength and experience to get it done.

    7 – Chuck Liddell
    Liddell’s best years may be behind him now, but that doesn’t mean he’s through. “The Ice Man” is still one of the best punchers in the business and he’s still got the ability to end fights quickly and in spectacular fashion.

    6 – Wanderlei Silva
    Although “The Axe Murderer” has lost two of his last three fights, he remains one of the most dangerous strikers in the sport and a force to be reckoned with in the Light Heavyweight division. sh” will get a shot at “Spider” Silva for the Middleweight Championship.

    5 – Forrest Griffin
    If guts were gold Griffin would be one of the wealthiest men in the world. The reigning Light Heavyweight Champion seems to win on sheer force of will some nights.

    4 – Kenny Florian
    “KenFlo” absolutely dismantled Joe Stevenson at UFC 91, emerging as the No. 1 contender to Penn’s Lightweight title. However, he’ll have to wait until the dust settles on the Penn-St. Pierre fight at UFC 94 for his title shot.

    3 – Quinton “Rampage” Jackson
    Jackson may no longer wear the gold, but his devastating hands and raw power remain as formidable as ever.

    2 – B.J. Penn
    Penn has matured as a fighter over the past two years, blossoming into one of the very best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. His consecutive wins over Jens Pulver, Joe Stevenson and Sean Sherk speak for themselves.

    1 – Anderson Silva
    Silva has completely dominated the Middleweight division since coming to UFC in 2006, showing that he’s truly a complete fighter and, pound-for-pound, the best in the UFC today.

    MMA Rules 

    MMA Pound for Pound present The rules for modern mixed martial arts competitions have changed significantly since the early days of vale tudo, Japanese shoot wrestling, and UFC 1, and even more from the historic style of pankration. As the knowledge about fighting techniques spread among fighters and spectators, it became clear that the original minimalist rule systems needed to be amended. The main motivations for these rule changes were protection of the health of the fighters, the desire to shed the image of “barbaric, no rules, fighting-to-the-death” matches, and being recognised as a sport.

    The new rules included the introduction of weight classes; as knowledge about submissions spread, differences in weight had become a significant factor. There are 9 different weight classes. These 9 weight classes include flyweight (up to 125 lb / 57 kg), bantamweight (126–135 lb / 61 kg), featherweight (136–145 lb / 66 kg), lightweight (146–155 lb / 70 kg), welterweight (156–170 lb / 77 kg), middleweight (171–185 lb / 84 kg), light heavyweight (186–205 lb / 93 kg), heavyweight (206–265 lb / 120 kg), and some organizations even go on to have a super heavyweight which is anything heavier than 265 pounds (120 kg).

    Small, open-fingered gloves were introduced to protect fists in punches, reduce the occurrence of cuts (and stoppages due to cuts) and encourage fighters to use their hands for striking to allow more captivating matches. Time limits were established to avoid long fights with little action where competitors conserved their strength. Matches without time limits also complicated the airing of live events. The time limits in most professional fights are three 5 minute rounds, and championship fights are normally five 5 minute rounds. Similar motivations produced the “stand up” rule, where the referee can stand fighters up if it is perceived that both are resting on the ground or not advancing toward a dominant position.

    Gloves were first mandatory in Japan’s Shooto promotion and were later adopted by the UFC as it developed into a regulated sport. Most professional fights have the fighters wear 4 oz gloves with little protection, whereas amateurs are required to wear a slightly heavier 6 oz glove for somewhat little more protection for the hands and wrist. In the U.S., state athletic and boxing commissions have played a crucial role in the introduction of additional rules because they oversee MMA in a similar way to boxing. Smaller shows may use more restrictive rules because they have less experienced fighters. In Japan and Europe, there is no regulating authority over competitions, so these organizations have greater freedom in rule development and event structure.

    Many U.S. states have a “no elbow policy” for amateurs to help protect the young fighters from serious injury by cuts or concussions. The use of a “12-6” elbow has been banned by several organizations along with restrictions on the use of knees to a downed opponent, dictated by one person having a hand, arm, or knee on the ground. Knees to the head of a grounded opponent is allowed in Japanese MMA. Headbutts are also widely prohibited because they require little effort and can quickly open cuts that might cause a fight to be stopped due to injury rather than because there is a winner.
