Infographic: Chicago Artist Releases Illustrated Style Guide to MMA

Courtesy: Phil Thompson Some fans of mixed martial arts try their hand at jiu-jitsu or judo or boxing. Phil Thompson , on the other hand, took his passion for MMA a step further. The Chicago-based fightsports lover is a talented artist and, in his free time, decided to painstakingly create an illustrated style guide of MMA. The guide, which is a spectacular full-color chart, depicts the sport’s origins, from its roots in the West and East, from striking to wrestling. Naturally, everything coalesces in the middle as mixed martial arts with virtually every prominent form of fighting represented in great detail. Thompson’s chart starts at the top with striking with boxing, karate and kung-fu and slowly expands to kickboxing, savate, san shou and tae kwon do, etc. As the striking arts slowly merge into MMA, they devolve into pure grappling, culminating at the bottom with Greco-Roman wrestling, judo, etc. On the left of the chart, everything begins with the West’s fighting styles such as Pankration, catch wrestling and vale tudo and slowly morphs in the styles of the East like Pancrase, hapkido and muay Thai, for example.

Opinion: Nostalgia is a Hell of a Drug

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * Nostalgia is one of the traits that make humans unique in the world. It’s hard to know if other animals ever feel nostalgic, since it’s not exactly visually readable like anger, sadness or fear. It’s likely that even emotionally and cognitively advanced animals cannot reminisce, as nostalgia is really an offshoot of -- or perhaps an intersection for -- imagination and emotion. It requires us to imagine the past to stir up similar feelings we once had. Whether nostalgia is part of the evolutionary development of remembering or if it hints at something larger, like the existence of a soul, it is a potent and uniquely human experience. This weekend was especially fixed on the rearview. It marked the 25th anniversary of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, as well as the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency. All manners of punditry were employed to construct meaningful, coherent narratives about both of them to see if the distance of time has brought about new understanding.

Anderson Silva Will Retire if He Doesn't Get Yoel Romero at UFC 212 | MMAWeekly.com

Let it happen! The UFC has become a zoo of stupidity now anyways. Anderson has been on a skid and I think he should have retired when on top, I also think had the quality of his opponents been better he would have continued to improve. Weidman was a win had he not been a clown. Anyways fast forward till now let them fight and maybe he pulls the last of everything out to make a good fight or gets murdered both are fun. Romero wins like expected then he can go kill Bisping and imagine if GSP and SILVA win? The UFC has their old timers SUPERFIGHT. The only dumb thing are these interim belts that make no sense but then …..neither do champs never fighting, retirees coming back for title fights etc. The UFC ZOO……let it go. After this can we get Mini mouse vs. Velasquez too?

The Bottom Line: An Imperfect Vessel

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * Former American League MVP and future MMA hero Jose Canseco began making accusations about performance-enhancing drug use in baseball in the mid-2000s. Through his book “Juiced” and a series of media interviews, Canseco became the most outspoken figure blowing the whistle on rampant steroid use in baseball. To that point, sportswriters and fans had largely looked the other way at the expanded physiques and statistics of the game’s biggest stars. Canseco fingered one after another for cheating. The reaction to Canseco’s revelations was abject rage. Canseco became perhaps the most reviled figure in sports, pilloried and ridiculed as a bitter, dishonest hypocrite. Many actually jumped to the defense of players who didn’t deserve that protection in the slightest. Canseco was nothing short of a pariah. The problem wasn’t just what he said; Canseco himself was an awful messenger.

Pancrase Books July 2 Yuki Kondo-Ikuhisa Minowa Rematch, Nearly 20 Years After First Clash

Nearly 20 years after they squared off for the first time, Yuki Kondo and Ikuhisa Minowa are going to do it one more time under the Pancrase banner. The rematch between Kondo and Minowa will take place at Pancrase 288 , slated for July 2 at Differ Ariake in Tokyo, Japan. The contest is a three-round middleweight affair, albeit with three-minute rounds. Kondo and Minowa first fought on Aug. 9, 1997 at Umeda Stella Hall in Osaka, on the eighth leg of Pancrase's “Alive” tour, with Kondo earning the victory via toe hold submission in just over five minutes. An icon of Pancrase and one of the promotion's most revered stars, the 41-year-old Kondo is just 1-5 over his last six bouts. The only win for the former Ultimate Fighting Championship title challenger in that period came in a two-minute knockout of Shooto pioneer and Shooting Gym Yokohama trainer Kenji Kawaguchi , who was 47 years old at the time. In his last outing this past March, the faded Kondo dropped a unanimous decision to Takaaki Nara , who had just one pro fight prior to the contest.

Help Us Save Boise State Wrestling

Boise State University just announced that it is cutting its wrestling program, effective immediately. The Bronco wrestling program has been molding young men since 1959 and wrestling has a strong following in the Boise area and in the state of Idaho. Boise State had one of the top wrestling programs in the country up until a few years ago. The program was top-ten ranked in 2010-11 and had an NCAA finalist that season (and again in 2013). Since 1999, it has produced two NCAA champions, two Olympians, and six Pac-10 team championships.  But the Boise State wrestling program doesn't just build winning wrestlers; it gives young men the foundation to be winners at life!!  Coach Mendoza, Riley Orozco, Levi Jones, Andrew Hochstrasser are exactly the type of young men I would want molding my son if he wrestled for them. If you don't know me, my name is Kevin Wood. I've been involved in wrestling for 50 years, 30 of them as a coach. I wrestled at Boise State University from 1979-82 and coached the high school wrestling teams at Mountain View, Eagle, Centennial, and Meridian.  Wrestling is the purest sport of intensity, endurance, mental toughness, camaraderie and simply "finding your true potential" sport that I have ever participated in.

At the same time, former Invicta champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino – the consensus best fighter in the division – has been chomping at the bit for a shot at the absentee champion, while reigning Invicta featherweight queen Megan Anderson has been patiently waiting to get the call for her UFC debut. As I said, disarray .

Dos Santos has been far less active. He had a year off after his win over Miocic, and in his returned was knocked out by Alistair Overeem at UFC on FOX 17 in December 2015. A little more than a year ago, he got back in the win column with a dominant unanimous decision over Ben Rothwell in Croatia. He was expected to fight Stefan Struve in Canada in February, but a Struve injury scrapped that fight and instead, Dos Santos was pulled from the card and got the title fight against Miocic.

Stories from the Road: Shonie Carter

It takes mere seconds for one to get a feel for been-everywhere, seen-everything quality of Shonie Carter . The unquestionable star of “The Ultimate Fighter 4,” he was known for giving pimp-walking lessons with a cane, making a floating pool chair out of empty plastic bottles he taped together and his black top hat and outlandish attire, which included diamond-studded belt buckles and a Scottish kilt. Though there is a certain underlying ennui in the tone of his voice, there is also a sense of vitality as he approaches his 45th birthday. Currently a personal training director at L.A. Fitness in Chicago, Carter is still fighting. Back in April, he was standing in a ring located within an ice hockey rink, wearing a kilt, holding up his bare fists against someone named Jimmy “The Celtic Warrior” Sweeney and competing along with 27 other men in Coventry, England, where he participated in something called Bare Knuckle Boxing.
