Who is Matt Hughes going to be fighting in UFC 63? On the website, it says he'll be fighting BJ Penn, but the insert in my DirecTV bill has him fighting George St. Pierre.

St. Pierre had to pull out due to a groin injury. Penn is stepping in. Gonna be a championship fight.

When Penn made his comeback and fought St. Pierre it was a good fight. Penn lost a decision but St. Pierre's face was all sorts of fucked up and Penn had no scratches on him.

I think Penn has a good chance at beating Hughes. Either way it will be good.

At a gym or a dojo? I want to start some martial arts training, but I don't know which style to choose. Maybe Tae Kwan Do?

Ready for the Ortiz/Shamrock re-re-match? October 10 on Spike TV. It's free this time, for those of us who feel ripped off from the previous 2 PPV events in which they fought.

Like with all martial arts, different schools focus on different things. There are also many different styles of Tae Kwon Do.

To get what you want you pretty much just have to try and sit in on a couple of classes to see if it offers what you are specifically looking for.

Some Tae Kwon Do schools focus 99% on sparring, others focus more on the actual martial art aspect. Just depends on what you're looking for.

Too many great fighters to the card. I just wished the fighters in UFC were as welll rounded as most of the Pride FC fighters. I mean in every class in the ufc there is the champion and hadly any real competition for them.

So, how many times has Shamrock "retired" or it has been his "last fight?"

The heavyweights in UFC aren't very deep, but I think the middleweight and welterweight are better than Pride.

If Tito vs. Ken 2 wasn't bad enough, we get to see round 3 tonight!!

Thankfully it is on SPIKE, so we won't have to pay to see the destruction.

Hopefully, after Tito beats Shamrock's ass a 3rd time, no more rematches will be needed.

I will be at school, so I will have to tape it as well, but I wouldn't mind seeing Shamrock win. The only thing would be if he won, there would probably be a 4 and maybe 5, and I really don't want to see that so........I guess I am saying go Tito. :lol:

I used to really like Shamrock just because he was a vet and I caught his first UFC match (on tape not back when it happened) where he manned up and admitted that he had tapped out when the ref hadn't seen the tap and was probably going to let the match go on if Sham insisted on it. (Damn some of the refs at the early UFCs sucked...) But after he was such a shitty coach on his season of TUF, basically he was just there to get his match against Tito, meh screw him.

Yep. Anyone not predicting a first round KO by Tito or ref. stoppage is pretty much clueless. I'm still not sure if I like the fact that they are "friends" now after this fight. I guess it's cool that Tito said he respects Ken now.

Pretty good show. Watched it on DVR, so I didn't have to sit through all the filler :mrgreen:

Hammil (deaf guy) looked pretty impressive, although there is something about him I just don't really like. It was a somewhat tough fight to watch IMO, what with Hammil grinding his elbow and hand into Petruzelli's hurt bloodied eye.

Herman's fight was short, but with all of the movement and reversals of guard it was pretty entertaining.

Grove - Price was stopped too early I thought.

And Tito crushed Shamrock as expected. I'd love to see Liddell kick his ass in December. I'd say the UFC has milked the 'old vet takes on a top guy and gets dominated' thing pretty well dry at this point. I think that's the 3rd fight like that this year. (Two Shamrock and one Gracie matches.)

Hello yeah. I want to see matt get destroyed like Franklin did. Every body mentions how Matt Hughes was great in his last fight but if BJ Penn made him look like a beginner for the first 2 rounds. BJJ at its best.
