If 100 random men and 100 random women were chosen to fight in mixed sex mma with legal groin shots, how many women would win?

>>186879
Your chart is rendered completely meaningless by pic related in this post >>186762

As much as you pathetic faggots hate real men, the bottom line is that biology created us to be physically superior to women when it comes to everything combat and strength related, and no amount of pretense will ever change that fact.
>>
>>186879
Even if you take a man and a woman that somehow have the same exact size, weight, and strength/speed/athleticism, the man is still very likely to have a significantly faster reaction speed, as well as higher aggression (while the woman is probably going to be more meek and more easily discouraged).

>>186752
If by pure chance you get a woman that's trained in an effective martial art and you put her against an untrained man that's smaller than her, she can win (some martial arts or techniques would give her decent chances against a larger man as well).
But considering how rare those women are, I think that the matchup is very unlikely to happen.

This randomness element makes the discussion pretty useless desu, since anything really can happen, even extremely unlikely events like the 100 women being pro MMA fighters and the 100 men being the weakest 100 able-bodied men in the world.

If you had a competition where the men and women were paired with a respective opponent of similar size/weight/strength/skill/etc (one or more of these) it would make more sense and lead to a discussion that's not so speculative, but then the men would win pretty much every time (although it would be interesting to see how things play out when only one of the aforementioned factors is removed, to see how each advantage actually helps you fight).
>>
guys did you know that the biggest housecat is larger than the smallest dog?
really makes you think
>>
>>186752
Possibly 1 woman out of the 100, I would give that like a 2% chance or lower compared to 98+% chance of all 100 men winning.
>>
>>186752
They would wear a cup so not that many

Is this legit?

You're wrong about LINE. It's far removed from the MMA 101 shit they teach now and was much better suited for its intended purpose

Anyway, I'm looking for more stuff like this, I already read Ippo btw. Also, movies and other media are also cool

Loved it, but it still pisses me off that it took several years of back-to-back street fights for the main character to learn what a feint is.

ITT: We take a non-extreme sport and change it to make it extreme.

Marathon but you can sabotage your opponents any way you want. Weapons allowed. Basically the Road Rash game but on foot.

Dodgeball with bocce.

Polo but with rodeo horses.

Water polo but the water is slightly acidic so your skin and eyes start to burn after a while and you can only get out (rotating with other team members) once you score.

Any motor sport but without brakes.

Soccer with bowling balls.

Squash but the room is so narrow and you can get hit by the other player's racket.

swooping is basically initiating a turn low to the ground to gain as much speed as possible before pulling up. If you do it right you can go 40-105mph across the ground

If you do it wrong you can do 40-95mph into the ground

Spine is how much your arrow flex due archer paradox (it’s possible to reduce this effect with thumb draw and khatra)
When calculating a correct spine you take account your draw weight and drawlength (use a sheet which has been posted several times itt)
Compounds transfer more force so you need stiffer arrow (look sheet)

Grain = weight. Lighter arrow is faster. Heavier arrow has better penetration.
Why is this relevant is that lighter arrow is closer to dry firing than heavier one. Some bows don’t take that kind of stress very well and they get damaged and eventually crack. This is why you need correct gpp (grain per pound) again relative to your #of bow. There are some guidelines for gpp usually between 7-11 gpp or even more on some Manchu bows (heavier siyah) while some Korean horse bows are meant to shoot with low gpp

Does anyone know how the draw weight is measured on a yumi? I know draw weights are usually measured at a standard 28in, but kyudo seems to do nothing like the rest of the world, so at what length do they measure it?

This thread has also been made in mind that it seems most MMA fighters have a shitty afterthought of a career post-retirement.

He's very wise to go for the bag. He was elderly and aging. Should have just retired after that fury fight and left boxing fans buttflustered for years to come. But hindsight is a bitch

Coaching?
Open you own gym?

I've noticed a lot of nobodies get picked up to coach specifics like striking or grappling. As long as they had one or two ammy fights they will be in demand. don't know what the pay is like though, I imagine not much.
>>
>>192990
>going after the bag
Ultimately, though there’s some joy in seeing Dana getting btfo and asshurt over it, Francis was completely right as an independent fighter to chase after fights with more money and those so happened to be outside of MMA.
You’ll look back on his career and wonder what the fuss was about (he really didn’t have that many at UFC level) but he made the right decision for himself in the long run.
>should have retired after Fury
I disagree with this and desu I thought pursuing AJ was a very smart move. Especially the £20m payday he got from it. He could’ve fought a comatose bum like Hellenius for an easier fight. The way AJ exposed him will be interesting to see who he matches up against next
>coaching etc
This seems to be it but the pay must actually suck unless you’re training with elite talent. Though even that is an unknown in terms of what they pay these people to spar. MMA just seems more depressing after retirement. Plus most retire younger than most boxers (who seem to go on for longer despite the damage done)

FAQ on buying a bike that nobody reads anyway:
> What good bike can I get for under $500?
>a stolen bike. Possibly a newer used entry level hardtail but don't expect it to survive rock gardens, jumps, or drops. Or an older mtb which won't be as good as newer ones and will still have a front derailleur, but it'll be good enough.
> What good bike can I get for under $1000
Good used hardtail, new entry level hardtail
> What good bike can I get for under $2000?
New Hardtail, decent used full suspension
> What good bike can I get for under $3000?
https://www.yt-industries.com/fr/produits/velos/capra/uncaged-10-al/602/capra-mx-uncaged-10/
Used full suspension, decent entry level full suspension but prepared to put more money into it.
> What are the excellent value brands?
Marin, Commencal, Canyon, Polygon, YT, Propain, Kona, and many more. Sometimes the expensive brands have an excellent alue bike

That comes later. It was brand new with a massive air leak into the lowers. Warrantied it in case it was the chamber/shaft itself and turns out it must be since they just did an air spring service and didn't bother to test it right

Depends on if you have gloves or not. I could teach you to effectively palm strike in a few days. It would take a year for you to be an effective puncher. Punches easily are more versatile. Knock outs require precision which also favors the punch.
>>
>knock out power and versatility
punches by far
>>
>>192868
This. If palms were actually stronger than punches everyone would use them all the time. The only advantage a palm strike has is that it’s less likely to break your hand.
