Default John Makdessi: "Belts are for holding your pants up"

UFC Lightweight John Makdessi isn't impressed by opponents with black belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.



"I train harder in my weaknesses than I train in my strengths," explains Makdessi. "I love striking. And there's more to my striking than just kicking and punching. To master one skill can take a lifetime. Just one skill. In MMA, we're trying to master many different skills. For me, I'm trying to be smart. I'm not going to become a black belt in jiu-jitsu in a year. Black belts don't matter to me; belts only hold your pants up. Good for someone that's a black belt, but MMA is a combat sport with punches and striking. It's a totally different ball game. It's about what I'm going to do and not what he's going to do. I believe I'm a true fighter who can take the most punishment and who can give out the most punishment. I'm looking to excite; I'm looking to dominate.

"With my skills, it's going to be fireworks. I'm very unpredictable and that's a beautiful thing about me. I always try to master my techniques and I always try to do crazy things for the fans because I love to entertain the crowd. With each fight the fans watch of me, they'll never have regrets and there will always be a nice taste to it."
He called it.

alot of these canadian fighters should just be happy with the fact the UFC is so watered down in 2013 and likes to stack canadian cards with hosers and CANs that all these ignorant canuck fans can identify with.....

if your name isn't georges or harold howard then plz STFU and deliver something before speak!!!

Faggots whine for strikers and when one comes along it's the same old troll.
Eat my ass VD. Makdessi would kill BJ Penn in front of everyone. Speaking of CANS.

sorry armbar didn't mean to touch such a nerve and make you delusionally angry that would actually compare some JJ green belt & UFC 2013 undercard fighter john makdessi to the first north american ever awarded a BB in JJ & 2 weight class UFC champion and officially recognized LW GOAT.

In front of everyone.

BJ's next fight will take place in a playpen as he attempts to beat up a baby and earn back a gram of the recognition he once had before becoming a complete joke.

BJJ black belts are for holding up pants VD, and Penn's isn't even good for that anymore.

Speaking of nerves.

irony of thread is that armbar is going hard to defend an Arab born in Lebanon just cause he chose Canada and then Nova Scotia as desirable location to emigrate too....

I bet if makdessi was just some undercarder with a decent punch who represented Hezbollah you wouldn't be so fast and furiously all over balls.

Two things your Greek yogurt brain can't seem to process:

1. Makdessi was born and raised in Halifax.
2. BJ Penn is washed up and has become a laughing stock among fans and fellow fighters.

your mad at me and your anger is making you blind to 2 things.....

1. BJ penn is a legend of combat sports and huge draw who is about to coach another TUF!!

2. john makdessi is a fucking undercard fighter in a watered down 2013 UFC world armbar, all the spinning backfist KO's against mr. lahey level fighters will never change that!

this john "the smoke" crackdessi guy is fucking delusional & back before MMA was watered down would be like some rough fighting fisherman from the bay of fundy who took NHB scraps in different ports and wharfs across the atlantic in between shucking oysters and netting snapper...

that's what most faggots from Nova Scotia who think they are tough and cool do....
