10/14/11 - This Week in Head Explode

Mental Dieting
October 13, 2011 at 5:35 AM

The most important of all factors in your life is the mental diet on which you live. It is the food which you furnish to your mind that determines the whole character of your life. It is the thoughts you allow yourself to think, the subjects that you allow your mind to dwell upon, which make you and your surroundings what they are. As they days, so shall they strength be. Everything in your life today the state of your body, whether healthy or sick, the state of your fortune, whether prosperous or impoverished, the state of your home, whether happy or the reverse, the present condition of every phase of your life in fact-is entirely conditioned by the thoughts and feelings which you have entertained in the past, by the habitual tone of your past thinking. And the condition of your life tomorrow, and next week, and next year, will be entirely conditioned by the thoughts and feelings which you choose to entertain from now onwards.

The Seven Day Mental Diet was published in 1935. I found out about it in 2007 and thought it was a great idea. But for whatever reason, it just sort of sat around on the ideas shelf for a long time, gathering dust. I saw it as a "nice to do" rather than a "must do."Recently that has changed. I am going to spend the next 7 days mentally dieting as strictly as I possibly can.

I'll update this thread here and there to let anyone who cares know how it is going. Rock Party hard.
Gegard Mousasi is pretty fucking ill
October 12, 2011 at 6:27 PM
This dude has been on my radar for some time now. He's an extremely good striker who is also a Judo black belt. He moves like water both standing and grappling. Take this fight for example. Journeyman Steve Mensing was hopelessly outmatched here. So much so that this almost isn't worth watching except to see how amazingly well Mousasi moved on the ground after surgically dissecting his opponent on the feet. Great hip movement. Some of the best I've ever seen from a 205 pounder. He has a bit of a padded record from fighting a bunch of bums early in his career but you see that constantly in boxing so I say get over it already.

There's been a lot of speculation as to how he would do in the UFC. I have to say, as big a fan of his as I am, right now the 205 lb. division in the UFC is the deepest it has ever been. There are SO many guys in contention. Even the second tier guys are still way better than pretty much anything you'll find in Strikeforce or Dream. The UFC also has some of the best wrestlers at 205 and wrestling seemed to be a bit of an achilles heel in his loss vs. King Mo. The fight was incredibly boring; so much it I don't even really think it's worth posting. It almost reminded me of a Matt Lindland victory; lots of lay-and-pray. But Mousasi is obviously a very intelligent fighter and amazing athlete. I expect him to get way better as time goes on. At 26, he's got probably another 10 years in him.

The fight that really blew me away was this complete domination of Renato "Babalu" Sobral. Babalu is a BAD motherfucker with notable wins over Chael Sonnen and Mauricio Rua, just to name a few. Very experienced, very tough and very well rounded. And Mousasi walked through him like he was nothing. Impressive to say the least.

In case y'all were wondering if he was kidnapped by ninjas, worry not. He is in the middle of some loldrama with his ISP and only has a cell phone for accessing the interwebs. But he'll be back.

They always come back. afro
Overeem vs. Lesnar
October 10, 2011 at 11:26 AM
Who will win this matchup between two steroid-fueled behemoths? One gigantic dude is afraid of getting hit and the other gigantic dude is pretty slow, clumsy and uncoordinated at grappling.

I'll go out on a limb and say that Lesner will take the big slow dude down and submit him.
