    Hahha I thought it was a pretty obvious attempt at self deprecating humour.

    Clearly there was nothing fine about any of my fights in 2013 especially the 15-25 seconds with mr. Loiseau. Live and learn

    Cheers

    In the event you haven’t seen The Season:Iowa Hawk eyes go watch it, The Bear (Mocco) gets plenty of camera time

    I’m no expert in managing…far from it…but I’ve just watched 3 of Mocco’s fights…yes his wrestling skills are good…but his submissions skills and transition skills on the ground aren’t very good…his striking is less than amateur at best…you pump him up to be the best HW prospect…ok…the 3 guys I watched him beat were terrible…I think you got this wrong…Mocco has never faced an opponent as fast and with the striking skills of Rama…and let’s not forget I do believe he has a purple belt in Jiu Jitsu…Mocco has never faced anyone as good as Rama…so I think it be a great fight and believe Rama will be victorious…its just my opinion…that’s all
    Watch the mocco fights yourself…there’s nothing spectacular about them…I truly believe Rama’s got this

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 7 Thumb down 7

    All the opponents Rama has beaten are just as terrible, if not much worse; part time, undersized, semi pro fighters. This fight will look like Roy Nelson vs Kimbo, side mounted with no place to go, face getting smashed and arms stretched the wrong way. Also, a purple belt doesn’t mean much when it comes to Alberta fighters, judging by results, not to mention whoever gave it to him. Mooco will treat Rama like the puggy little kid he is, just like Hamilton did their entire fight. It is too bad BTP would rather kiss ass than use logic when it comes to predicting fights, just like what happened Rama’s last fight. No one thought he would get ktfo and now everyone will get to see him tap this fight

  5. Shane BTP Mountney says:

    I am using logic…watch the fights…judge for yourself…and if you saw the Hamilton vs Rama fight…Rama won the first rd…made a simple mistake in the second …just like so many pros in the UFC before him…you can hate on Rama and all the Canadian fighters you want…it doesn’t affect them …I still believe Rama has the tools and will win this fight…just because Bigfoot silvas camp brought mocco in to help Silva with his wrestling doesn’t mean squat…its not like Silva was punching and kicking him in the face…the days of specializing in one aspect of MMA are pretty much over…especially as you reach the upper echelon of the sport…it helps…but it doesn’t guarantee victory…either way I’m sure both fighters will be prepared…and it will be a great HW tilt…again I believe with Rama being victorious…

    I agree with BTP i just watched a couple of his fights and his movement on the ground is very slow, transition game on thr ground was not very good at all. I also believe on there feet rama has the advantage. Good work out to be a good fight or a 3 round snoozer with Mocco on top. Rama definetly Mocco biggest test as well.

    What we think is irrelevant.

    For Rama to win this fight he needs to fight with a lot of confidence.

    I hope he can upset this guy. It will be a huge huge huge test and I hope he finds the way to pass it.

    He’s young, talented, fast, and very driven.

    It is a marquis match up at HW for WSOF Canada.

    Yes its a crazy test. Its the type of fight I would never ever book for one of my guys at this stage, especially coming off a loss.

    But the upside is, if he can get this guy out of there, the UFC will take Rama very very seriously. They sign 7-1 guys who knock off top prospects all the time.

    With massive risk comes massive reward.

    I hope he thinks all of us naysayers are dummies and goes in there with confidence.

    All the best to him.

    For all you guys scared of seeing Rama lose this fight…would you rather see another ham and egger again that he would walk on? Those guys are where they are supposed to be (check out the HW pleminary fight).

    The HW depthin Canada is brutal…only way to get better or recognized is to keep bringing these skilled Yanks up.

    Has anyone seen Hague’s muffin top? Jesus Christ, grandfather Lee is going to run around the cage for 14 seconds, let that fat pug faced washed up bum tire out, then send him for a nap quicker then his juiced out boyfriend chad Olmstead can throw in the towel!!!
    Ah well, least well get to see a knockout.

    On a side note, GO FORD GO!!!

  15. Hague vs Mein should prove to be an entertaining scrap pitting two fine ambasadors and pioneers in the sport of mma against each other, the true winners in this rock em sock em affair will be the spectators.

    Mein fights for the love of the sport! Trains guys 24/7 and gets the itch to fight so gets in there for the hell of it. Hague fights cause he’s a broke loser and needs money to support his eating habits! Hell the guy doesn’t even have a room for his kid, so I can see why he needs the cash.

    Anyone who disrespects mien is silly he’s done nothing but positive things for mma in the canada.

    Hague is a washed up joke wasting his friends and fans time/money. Can’t even make weight? Unreal
