Rematch should be good though
I'm not surprised. Cormier is genuinely the total package.
There may not be a rematch, with Lesnar somehow being thrust into contention.
Yeah that stuff with lesnar was stupid
How old is Lesnar now?
Just signed up for my first bjj class. I know virtually nothing. Any advice?
Tap often and if anything feels like it hurts, tap
Nobody will call you a pussy if you tap a lot as a beginner
@Pat-MA Good on you , bro.
6 months from now, you will feel like you have super powers. 💪🏼
Appreciate it guys
Anyone here box? What brand of gloves do you use for bag work? It seems like everything under $100 is Pakistani made and uses the same pattern.
I don't use gloves for bag work
I kind of would go against using gloves, to train your fist strength
Don’t not wear bag gloves. Believe me when I tell you that the long term trauma to your joints and wrists will have you regretting that decision in a few short years. My hands are in a constant state of inflammation. I have several bone spurs. My wrists need constant massaging.
Some of my fingers are off alignment.
I mean, I don't go 100% by any means
but I'm also throwing in combos and kicks/knees/elbows
so its not exclusively handwork
but by the end of the session I have 0 pain whatsoever
Planning on the gloves. "Toughening up" ones hands is not worth a lifetime of pain and easy re injuries.
The first thing people break in a fight is their hands.
Also, as I mentioned, I'm not going 100%, am painfree, and have been doing this for about a year now.
🙄 Do what you will though
I'm not trying to second guess you or your experience, just adding my own.
@Deleted User not overly hard, but I’ve probably done it for a much longer time than you have. That said, my hands were hurting in maybe my second or third year
Yeah I agree with @Tyler0317 definitely get bag gloves I use 16oz and double wrap my hands. And when sparring I use 12oz. Ringside are well made gloves but pricey.
Most important is to wrap your hands right
I didn't for the first years I got into it and today I can feel it
When teaching others I point out that 'Humans aren't built to punch'.
If we were, we'd have bony clubs for hands. Our hands are relatively brittle, and comprised of ~20 small bones.
Our hands are built for dexterity, for fine motor skills, for grasping.
While striking can be effective, precautions must be taken.
Try hard status.
Grats Sam! I know how good that feels man. Keep at it!
