    One thing i liked about News was, everyone and anyone could log on and ask a question and usually it was answer by a member very quickly. Even a person like me who thinks they know a lot about mma and other things in general i always learned quite a bit from reading through that section at the mmanews.

    I would say just here we just start a thread for now and if you have a question go ahead and ask. If you ask it they will come.

    well it was really helpful for when i first came to mmanews, and learned soem things without havign to even post. To sum it up i think its good for the newer members.

    I don't think it would to too much harm. :)
    I had to ask in NoobJack at mmanews to find out what p4p meant when I first started watching MMA.

    The can opener is when your in someones guard and you pull there head forward. It can be used as a submission if the guy really sucks but from what I understand its primarily used to get your opponent to open there guard. All you have to do to remove the strain on the neck from the pulling forward of the head is to open your guard and scoot your hips back.

    At least this is my understanding of the can opener.

    That is exactly correct.

    The only time I can remember actually seeing it get the submission is when Mark Coleman submitted Masaaki Satake with it in the 2000 Pride GP

    Do we have a top ten for each division according to the posters at the "Spot"?

    This is something i would like for this site to do eventually, have the site vote say the top 5 or 7 posters, let them post their top rankings, and than we have some kind of point system. and there well have our rankings for the site.

    Eventually much like smoogy, did at the news, i am going to start posting my own rankings of the ufc and the world of mma but i'll prolly go to 30, cause 10 is for pussies, and 20 is for bitches. I know you much like many other people won't care, but when someone does post their rankings it adds a lot of discussion imo.

    Rankings are pointless IMO.

    Every site has them, and everyone bitches about them.
