Holyfield is fucking 60 years old isn't he?

I guess they'll sanction any old nonsense in the good ol' USA these days.

This isn't going to help.

Remember everyone laughing at the freak show fights in Pride?

I saw a picture of a big tranny beating the shit out of a woman in mma tonight and choking her out on twitter. We're in the dumper now.

Holyfield was getting dropped every time Vitor hit him in the arms basically. At his age he doesn't have the balance to deal with Vitor's speed, good thing he wasn't hurt too badly.

Evander Holyfield is a Legend and I don't like to see a man of his AGE/Status doing such a show. I would rather see him doing a youtube video about OLD Age WorkOut Routine Motivation or something more respectable like that.

I don't like seeing these venerable OLD Men make a spectacle of themselves and I would rather they assume the more suitable role of wise ELDER teacher such as I mentioned with an inspiring youtube video.

There is a conscious effort to lampoon fightsport right now, esp. with all this comedian vs. fighter matchups.

RE: Vitor Belfort vs Evander Holyfield on 9/11
When there was talk of Holyfield fighting Tyson a few months ago, the footage circulating of Holyfield in the gym was actually rather impressive.

He was already in training this time for a fight with Kevin McBride, and he did appear to be in great physical shape for his age, so I was leaning towards him being able to beat Vitor purely on muscle memory and having boxed at the highest level.

I wasn't expecting him to be so slow and off balance.

Now Vitor is calling out all boxers, and a 30 million dollar challenge to Jake Paul.

I'd like to see him box Anderson Silva, that seems like the obvious fight now.

Tito should box Ben Askrin to see who is the worst boxer.

RE: Vitor Belfort vs Evander Holyfield on 9/11
^^^ Bisping's new YT show is pretty good, especially compared to some of other ex-UFC guys who are attempting to host Podcasts.


He did make a good point about how Vitor was in full kill mode, when it was obvious after the opening seconds that Holyfield was a mere shell of his former self. Vitor acted like he'd just KO'd Tyson Fury in a title fight and was congratulating himself for kicking the ass of an old guy who should not have been in there.

But a fight is a fight, and you are always supposed to treat your opponent as if they are going to be your toughest ever, so I can't really blame Vitor for being that way. He did just defeat a legend of Boxing, in a Boxing match.

The promoters are admitting the fights were worked 'exhibitions' now that they have everyone's money. That's some real carny shit right there.

I think they make them exhibitions to get around a lot of red tape, safety rules and drug testing.

Are they actually admitting that Ortiz and Holyfield took dives?

I'm just trying to figure this shit out like you are.

Some respected boxing scribes like Dan Raphael are reporting it that way but no. I haven't read about the promoters saying anything to that effect. I'm not following the story closely either. I only saw the fights because they were posted here. It looked to me like Silva and Belfort carried them for a round and then they checked out as soon as the heat was turned up.
