  3. I'm so glad Bas is running bare knuckle boxing this is gonna be so successful and fair. Will branch UFC fighter and Boxers wanting to throw down. This is gonna be as big or bigger then boxing only because of Bas pioneering

    • +Karyn Bryant, I made an observation, very simple. I have the right to do so. I am the fan of the sport which means I saw you not only with El Guapo but in all other shows you do. So please let me keep my opinion on fake smiles as I have a lot experience with them.Thank you. Take care

  4. ironically it seems like the safest AND most realistic form of combat sport would be bare knuckle mma, you probably wouldn't see much head punches at all because why risk breaking your hand when you have so many other techniques you can use. I guess that's why they are doing bare knuckle boxing though instead of bare knuckle kickboxing, muay thai or mma because in those sports they would probably just avoid throwing many head punches if it was bare knuckle and use other techniques but for some reason most fight fans just want to see a lot of head punches.

  5. Maybe I'm just a hipster but it bothers me that the title says "UFC HALL OF FAMER" rather than something like "Three Time King of Pancrase" or "Former UFC Heavyweight Champion". The reason being, is that the real accomplishment is in the.. well, accomplishments. I'd like to also argue that the only reason Bas's pedigree really checks out is due to his Pancrase career. Had he simply been a former UFC champion, with two fights in the UFC, he wouldn't be the legend he is today and wouldn't have been inducted into the hall of fame. It just bothers me that the most arbitrary award is the one we're attaching to his name, especially when what truly defined the man, was his career in pancrase.
