Well, since we're going without spoiler tags, I might just as well continue the trend. It didn't feel as good watching Big Country knock someone out as it felt watching Barry turn Del Rosario into a zombie for a while. That left that had Del Rosario doing the fish dance, was a hard, hard one. Great sight to see!

Khabilov, wow. That was some fun wrestling there. I wish there were more wrestlers doing that offensive type of matrix wrestling even though I liked (a lot) how Ricci was dominated throughout the whole fight. Basically, Ricci looked like he didn't really belong there. That's how dominated he was.

For the most part, I liked the whole event. Aside from Big Country knocking Mitrione out. To be honest though, he's one of the toughest dudes in there. I think he'd match up well against Mark Hunt, but I think he'd just take Hunto down and do some of his jiu-jitsu on him.

GSP and Nate Diaz at UFC 158 March 16.

Yeah I figure why go with the spoiler tag, any fightblog/news site has the match results so it's not like a movie IMO. But I will use them if people object.

Khabilov's wrestling style is called Sambo, in case anybody isn't familiar. It's a modern Russian style but there are US practitioners.

I like Hunt but I agree he's not ready for BC. Besides the jiu-jitsu, Nelson may be the only man on Earth that Hunt can't knock out without the aid of a baseball bat.

It looks like St.-Pierre is ducking Silva for now and grabbing some cash on the table for an easier fight. Evidently the "Superfight" is on hold, which I think is a good idea as there needs to be some further sorting out in that class. But I don't think Diaz is part of the conversation.

UFC 155 was kind of a dud but the headline fight was interesting. Looking forward to the rematch, to see who will win the best of three. I think the belt will change hands again, as Junior was totally not ready for what Cain brought to the table this time. I think the next fight between these two will be one for the ages.

I thought the two co head lining fights in UFC 155 were both fine.  Miller/Lauzon was a bloody battle and deserved FotN.  Dos Santos/Velasquez 2 was how most thought the first one would go, with the pace of the wrestling and good stand up from Cain keeping Junior from dropping too many bombs.  I do agree that I can see the heavyweight belt possibly change hands again before the rubber match between the two, but mainly because I can't see Dos Santos getting a quick rematch, especially with Overeem waiting.

Who cares about a spoiler, it was obvious.  Arm bar...

haha.

 

man.. Ronda Rousey. I want it. 

Did you guys like the female bouts? That was the first one I bothered watching, and I enjoyed the ground game aspect.. hate watching women punch each other in the face.. unless it's on Worldstarhiphop.. cuz then it's funny

 

lolz at the Monster Inspirations..I thought the card was ok. The last fight (after the beautiful armbar sub) was actually the most entertaining to me.. (although I can't recall their names, cuz they were unknowns)

 

post #519 of 655

That last fight was Bermudez vs. Grice I believe. It was actually a rerun from the fx prelims. That was the best fight out of the card (and so far this year) even got "fight of the night".

 

8 armbars in a row...who would've thought? that liz carmouche looked pretty vicious, i was actually kind of scared for Rhonda, but she's a proven winner.

Hunt can punch, I wonder if he can connect for another 1st-round KO.

I don't know... Struve has been a BEAST in his last couple of fights. I wouldn't count him out... But yeah... I can sure see Hunt throwing a huge overhand right and knocking him out. Lots of great Japanese (and Korean) talent tonight as well. Should be a good card.

It's amazing how tall Struve is and how far he has to fall.

Yes, now we all know that Hunt's not a one-trick pony; he out-wrestled the seven-footer before he chopped him down in the third.

 

That first round of the main event last night was the most violent single round of fighting I have ever seen. If Stann had been a little more strategic, we might have had a classic 5-rounder. Silva is a true freak of nature.

 

In other news, I didn't see the first bout between these two (the first Rousey fight I saw was last week), but I am certainly looking forward to the rematch!

Epic first round indeed. There's nothing more to be said about that fight.

 

Also, Hunt is a hell of striker. He broke Struves jaw. Early stoppage, yeah... rolleyes.gif
