Man, the Koscheck/Sanchez fight sucked!! I thought that was going to be the fight of the night. I never thought that they would stand all the way through. Neither one of them are great strikers. Koscheck basically played keep away all night and Sanchez would stop if he couldn't hit him with a 1-2. Nobody wants to get hit but sometimes you have to take a punch to give one. It was a case of the "ones scared and the others glad of it." That is a shame. But you would have thought that after losing two rounds Sanchez would have attempted a take down. Sure Koscheck would have probably reversed the take down, but once on the ground Sanchez could have changed things up like he did earlier in the fight. Koscheck won the fight clear but in a chickenshit way. He didn't fight, he just did enough to win the rounds. The Tamer gives that fight two thumbs down.
The Serra/GSP was crazy!! I thought Serra was going to get beat down, but wow did he pull it off in a fashion nobody expected. My hats of to him. I am glad he won. Who wants a Canadian Champion anyway.lol
Obviously UFCs popularity has been on the rise but the true mark of making it is being a lead in story on Sportscenter. Too bad they made it sound like Serra was some chump of the street that won a reality show and beat the champ
Last night was one of those nights I felt cheated paying for PPV
I thought the 6'6 dude was a pretty damn good fighter for a TALL skinny guy! He was throwing shots the ENTIRE fight from foot stomps to elbows and everything in between....Garcia fight was a good one as well.....
Koschecks fight sucked!
2006 GSX-R 1000
2001 Mustang Bullitt
1992 Mustang Coupe
Sanchez and Koschek... I think that fight is what made Jodi and I have to take off a little early, Jimmy. She fell asleep and I drifted off 2 or 3 times in the middle of it. LOL! Can't say I've ever had that happen watching a fight, and I took a nap before we even came over.
Location: the original let me google that for ya guy
Koscheck had the perfect game plan for fighting Diego. It sucked big fat hairy balls to watch but man it was exactly what he wanted.
The huerta fight...Fight of the year that I've seen so far...that young kid has a lot of upside and Huerta looked like he could really go somewhere in the division.
Serra- right before the fight I told Don and The Head that anyone on any given night can win a fight. Serra shocked me for sure, I thought maybe he might somehow catch him in a sub if he could get to guard....I did not see that coming in though.
Kendall Grove looked really impressive to me as well.
ya big upset there man. the arena went fucking crazy.
I would have never expected that to happen.
That's one reason why I love the sport of mma. One mistake in a fight can shake up a whole division... People were saying GSP was lb 4 lb best fighter, I dont think you can say that now.
Did anyone see the Pride fights last night? They aired the live last night a few hours after UFC. It was their last show before the buyout. Here is one of the fights. lmfao
This fight wasnt aired on the american broadcast. and for good reason. haha
WOW. I thought that butterbean fell off the face of the earth after his boxing career...
"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."
We were all shocked by the fights last night. The Sanchez-Koscheck fight was pathetic. Diego didnt even look like a fighter. To make matters worse, I can not stand Koscheck and made quite a few remarks to my friends that he was going to get smacked around. Boy was it fun eating my own words. lol.
I do agree though that the Huerta-Garcia fight was by FAR the best fight of the night. The only fight really worth watching IMO.
I dunno with GSP v. Serra. I think a lot happened in rapid sequence that really led to GSP going down. Didn't appear that he was dizzy until that third hit or so. The first hit swept over his head, throwing him off, but not dazed. Then as he retreated toward the fence, he slipped. Next hit was the real connection that put him under.
I know it's a bench racer's mentality to say I think that GSP would take that fight 90% of the time, but I do. I also think Hughes is happy that his title shot might not have to be through GSP again.
