A poll has been added.

I suck at Fantasy Football, and I think I would be too lazy to do the research on a Fantasy MMA (UFC) team. XD
.
I like the pick 'em, but I, like Penguinpirate24.85K , forget more often than not. Also I was without a computer for like 6 months so I missed it. :(
.
In other news, I am glad Palhares is doing well. I really enjoy watching him fight, though I did miss his fight against Fitch.

I really liked how that Fereirra kid was looking. He was crisp and clean, quick and he looked strong.....too bad he couldn't take a punch. punch Do we know what the strike count was for Alvey? Did it get out of single digits? lol.
.
Bigfoot needs to retire. I mean props to Mir and all, but his chin has seen better days (tee hee). It's gone, I think he used up what was remaining in the Hunt fight.
.
That Barboza/Johnson fight was pretty entertaining...and I am not a skinny guy fan. lol.
.
I'm also taking bets (not really) on what Cain will injure "during training" that will force him to miss UFC 188.dull

I've only been into MMA for about a month, and I have trouble following the BJJ sometimes, though the commentators help a lot. Any suggestions of things to read or watch which will help? I'm sure I'd enjoy it even more if I wasn't completely dependent on the commentators saying "he's trying to do xyz"

First up, welcome! :) If you're into contact sports, or even fake contact sports (WWE), you're going to love MMA.
.
As to your question, what Pringlescan20.13K is good, going back and watching the old Pride fights, and fights where Bas Rutten is commentating, is both entertaining and educational. The reason being that back then, MMA was fairly new for most people so things, moves and rules and such, had to be explained over and over.
.
Even if you don't have the time (or the inclination) to do that right now, then just keep watching. Soon you will be able to differentiate a D'arce choke from a Guillotine and become an expert....like the rest of us.lol
.
I don't know where you live, but YouTube was invaluable to me too because in that way I could both get a definition AND example of what the different moves look like that I didn't know.
.
My final two cents is when you have time, to watch as many UFC events of the past as you can. If only for the reason that UFC is the name brand of MMA and when people think about MMA they think UFC first. Hence if you get into convos about MMA/UFC you can refer to the "good ol' days" when Emmanuel Yarborough was smothering opponents titter. (Look up his only win on YouTube for a laugh.lol)
.
Most of all, just enjoy the diversity in fighting styles that comes from MMA and the fights that stem from it!

"The Blacklist" (S02E12) -

I enjoyed the episode. Still irks me that if this fulcrum is so important and Red KNOWS that Liz knows something about it, that he is so disinterested in pushing her to remember.
.
The way this episode ended, I can't wait for the next!

I feared for Jon Anik's life when he was interviewing Cat. She looked as though she was going to rear naked choke him out any second. shockedtitter
.
EDIT: Just finished watching Fight Night 60...not a Bendo fan, but definitely impressed. He was definitely outsized, and took some hard shots, but finished it beautifully! Full props to him for moving up a weight AND short notice AND dominating! Very entertaining fight.
Name: Amharic 101 (Amharic 102, 103 etc. Basically any of the cd/dvds on Amharic.com)
Platform: I am not sure. I am using Win 7 Professional, but considering they are dvds/cds, as long as it can be viewed in North America, it will be helpful.
.
I know it's a little off the unbeaten path, but I appreciate the help.
