Now got family dont relish putting them through the anxiety.
Point is are figthers being paid "Enough" I say yes deduct what their crooked managers take which we dont see.
I don't want to see Mma fighters turn into the privileged bastards that are in football, basketball and may soccer.
We already see Jones skate past years of jail time and do nothing but ***** that he is not making 100 million.
you sign a contract live up to it or pay the price UFC pretty good at suing dumb asses.

probably was the dolphins ive seen out recently, Also a white shark won’t eat you flat out they’ll bite you let you bleed out then eat you. They’re smart they don’t want to get hurt in the scuffle

Not in the water you don’t see them cause they’re designed to look like the ocean from above but they sky from below. but I’ve been deep sea fishing and seen one, Just cruised by the boat when we were chumming probably about 10 feet so it was a juvenile

That's in fact the part that scares me the most about great whites. Huge but stealthy! 

I seen a dock where they tried a chainmail suit on a dummy against a great white. ******* comes out of nowhere from underneath slowly. Scares me still the thought of one of those in the water with me.

Apparently if you spend an hour in the ocean there’s a like 50% chance there was a shark within 5 feet of you. Don’t know if that’s a real stat but I’m gonna roll with it cause when I surf I get spooked all the time, usually it’s just a stingray or seal but still it’s eerie out there, first light, fog, overcast mornings, in the fall the waters cold so you’re shaking, legs in the water sitting on a board. It’s a trip man but it’s a rush nothing like being at the mercy of the ocean but still slightly in control

Good surfers love rips because they get them out the back fast with zero effort. They're like conveyor belts at the airport. If you can't recognize a rip/don't know how to deal with them you shouldn't be in the ocean period IMO.


Depends what kind of shark really. Only ones I used to worry about were tigers and Bulls. Don't think I've ever seen a great white.Caught quite a few Bulls less than/ about 1M over the years, they are good to eat apparently, but I never did because you have to cut their tail off while they're alive and bleed them out first and I was always too much of a bleeding heart to do it.
One of my uncles owned a trawler and had a few sets of Jaws/other weird things he had pulled up over the years. I remember him showing me a set of Tiger shark jaws and explaining that their teeth are like  a circular saw, and are also technically the only 'bones' they have in their body...even the actuall jaw part isn't bone, it's some kind of cartilage. He told me about some fish called a bearded ghoul which has a sting that's so painful it defies belief and says that one time one of the guys that did the sorting got stung by one and they had to lock him up because he was going crazy with agony.


He had a huge saw from a saw nosed shark that they had brought up in their nets around Darwin. Apparently they're a gentle species though, and they don't use the saw to attack anything. They kind of just shake it around inside schools of fish to break up the bait ball. He reckoned Koorie kids up there would jump on their backs and go for rides on them.

And yes @fish rips are helpful to get out, but not for people who don’t know what they’re doing, instead of swimming parallel to shore they try and fight the current and get exhausted, then they take a visit to Davey Jones

I wouldn't even do that TBH. Just float on your back, get taken out and around the other side and wave surf back in.

However when I was younger and even more ******** than I am currently I did this at Kirra beach and got taken out and back into a rocky head and got shredded by oysters.

So yeah...not an ideal solution every time.

Free that happened at Indian Head, Fraser island. I'm not surprised really. Pretty wild out that way. Absolutely beautiful region though. Think he was spearfishing. A great white was responsible for that one apparently.

Fun fact: Crayfish ( Lobsters) in Australia emit a sound when the are attacked that causes sharks to be attracted to them. I think the deal is sharks don't eat them but eat everything that does. So it's always wise to be on guard when spearfishing for crayfish.
