My Si-fu was discussing elastic force just last night….



I don’t know who this Emelianenko clown is, but he has a garbage mouth.

I respect the girls who defend the country’s honor at the Olympics, in wrestling, boxing. But I do not support female MMA. A woman must take care of the house, raise her children and be feminine. There a lot of different sports which help her in that, but MMA is not one of them.

A bit stinky garbage mouth. Full of garbage. Because garbage.

Fedor WAS a legend. But he hasn’t been truly relevant since…. what… 2006? (maybe later if you follow him strictly for combat Sambo, but even then…). He’s ultra Russian Orthodox iirc, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a stripe of that crappy Russian Conservatism showing here in him. anyway, yawn on Fedor.
