Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Morning Beatdown: Mac Danzig vs. Tommy Speer

So, Mac Danzig proved a few things at Saturday’s Ultimate Fighter 6 finale: 1) I should really stop making public predictions. 2) Experience trumps raw power. 3) With his killer ground-and-pound and the ability to end nearly every fight in a rear naked choke, Danzig may already be a top-5 contender in the UFC’s lightweight division. The UFC is pretty aggressive about pulling their vids from YouTube, so get it while it’s hot…

JLBritt1 if u only bench press 270 @ 230 lbs. bodyweight thats pretty damn sad. there are 170 pounders i know that bench 275 for at least a couple reps, at least 2-4 reps. u my friend suck!

2 miles in 15:40? hahahahhahaha what a bitch go back to the gym assclown

5'10" @ 230 doesn't make you fat. I'm 5'8" and 230, but then again I'm at 8% body fat, bench 270, and run 2 miles in 15:40. Muscle weighs more than fat retard.

Danzig had way too much experience to lose agaist Speer.

When's he fighting again?
Turdburglar- January 14, 2008 at 11:56 pm
did anyone actually think tommy stood a chance in the first place? Tommy is very over rated. i had money on danzig taking him out in the first. in the fights he won on the show what did he demonstrate? good stand up? no. good takedowns? no. good ground work? no. Good ground and pound? not really. he beat war machine, becuase he's a fucking head case and pussed out in the second. he beat george, becuase george is over rated as well.

Taivras, you are a moron. You are commenting on something you obviously know NOTHING about.
Mikem7- December 11, 2007 at 4:20 pm

Do either of those guys look fat to you? If two people are atheletes and they both have extremely low body fat %, and one weighs 20lbs more than the other... that one is more than likely a hell of a lot stronger. Do you really think people would sit in a sauna in a trashbag suit on an exercise bike and sweat off 20lb of water if it didn't give them any advantage in their sport?? You are the stupid one...
Sam- December 11, 2007 at 6:41 am
Mike is right. If Ben and Jerry's made you stronger, why are people even in the gym? Right?...I mean, right guys?
Mike- December 11, 2007 at 5:54 am
Ok... all these comments about "tommy cuts weight" et cetera are starting to bug me. People are stupid. Can anyone provide proof where it says that if you have more weight you are actually stronger than someone of close weight? Idiots. you can be a fat asshole and you might be weaker than a guy 20 pounds lighter than you. Strength has to do with muscle NOT weight. People are really stupid.. anyway..

Does anyone really watch this gay crap anymore?
walter- December 11, 2007 at 4:46 am
u guys are all retarted it doesnt matter how big or small they are the man reason why mac won is because of how he has more experience in the cage and how he trains...if u guys watched the fight on tv you would see how both of them trained tommy had his own little course thing he would do to make himself stronger and have more endurance but he never trained with ne one, there was no training in the mac on the other hand went to a gym worked on both endurance n strength ALSO he trained in the cage wit people doin BJJ, stand up, you name he was doing it, while tommy didnt train the right way for the fight..

Tommy is a farm boy so he's got some crazy hidden farm-working strength.
robbie- December 11, 2007 at 2:26 am
of course mac won, he is glenn danzigs son!
bobbles- December 11, 2007 at 1:59 am
i love tater tots too. they're really great.
aj- December 11, 2007 at 12:38 am
you are WRONG Taivras. Have you ever heard of weight cutting? If you think tommy speer is walking around 170 lbs you are dead wrong. He cut weight to make 170 lbs. He is OBVIOUSLY bigger than danzig. I would give him at least a 20 lb advantage.

The Dave:

You have to be confident. You can't go into fights saying to yourself " Man I am gonna lose". I lose sometimes. No one is perfect, as can be seen by my spelling/gramatical error above, which was so quickley pointed out by Senex.

Stay tuned, fellas...I'm going to post the third round of that War Machine/J-Roc fight on the site tomorrow morning.

1.they were the same weight at the weight in(which is the day before the fight). just about every fighter cuts weights. they do that in wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, mma, and possibly ice skating.

2. mac actually weighted in at 168, and weighted 168 the day of the fight, which is lighter than required 170. and the kickers is MAC DOES NOT CUT WEIGHT. while tommy probably weighted about 195lb to 200lbs(possibly more) on fight day. so yes, in theory, tommy should have been much stronger.

3. no, short guys don't necessary win everytime. taller guys have reach advantage on their feet, and advantage on the ground as well because it's easier to pull of some of the submissions. there are way too many variables in mma to just contribute a win or lose to one factor, such as height.
The Dave- December 10, 2007 at 11:20 pm
Also, no more fucking talking and or correcting about the weight issue, we get it already.....
The Dave- December 10, 2007 at 11:19 pm
Once I saw the retarded comment from Taviras I wanted to shoot myself cuz I knew most if not every single comment afterwards would be correcting him as if the first one wasnt enough. Ya anyways J-Roc vs War Machine was a fucking amazing fight. War-Machines a fucking bad ass dude and I hope he gets more fights in the UFC because I can see him being a high energy fighter like Huerta or Guida if he gets more cardio.
The Dave- December 10, 2007 at 11:03 pm
Sound pretty confident in yourself eh Jeremy?
db3300- December 10, 2007 at 10:59 pm
It's always good to see those with low IQs who don't have an intelligent argument resort to insulting one's grammar. What a douche.
Senex- December 10, 2007 at 10:41 pm
You mean more skilled "than" Tommy, go back to school.
Jeremy- December 10, 2007 at 10:29 pm
I am 5'10" and weigh in around 225-230 during normal days. I fight at 205. I can almost gaurentee, since there are always exceptions to the rules, that I have more muscle mass then someone who is also 5'10" and weighs between 195 and 205 on a daily basis.

With equal skills I would win more often then not. Things that can throw that off would be someone with an exceptionally long reach, lucky shots, mistakes, etc.

Mac simply was more skilled then Tommy.
