I watch basically every UFC, have since very early on, but the one thing that sucks about it is there isn't nearly enough coverage here without it being main event pay per views.

OneHD needs to do some deals to open it up to the public with regular shown live.

I love watching UFC. But never get UFC or Boxing on Main Event. Only thing that puts me off for that is you never know how long matches can go for. I remember there was a lot of hype for this BIG match only for it to end 10 seconds in ::). Alot of angry people paid $40 to watch that 10 seconds!!!

I would love for One to get more UFC showings, even if they are a little old. Use to watch Ultimate fighter for the first couple of seasons. Got me into it :).

I've been into UFC and other MMA for about 6mths now - saw it on the highlights shows (UFC Wired/UFC Unleashed) on OneHD and I didn't like it at first - i'm not squeamish but the blood made me feel like a bloodthirsty voyer.

Kept watching a bit more and started to hear and learn about the different strategies involved (stand-up/striking, BJJ, wrestling/grappling etc) and it became a bit more cerebral and less "human cockfighting" for me - can't get enough of it now.

If you don't have payTV subscript, good way to watch live is at a local pub. Usually shown on Sundays around 12pm AEDT depending on where the bouts are on in US/overseas.

UFC 123 is on this Sunday, think from 1300 AEDST - definitely recommend it if you can get to a pub putting it on, some cracker fights including Australian George Sotiropoulos fighting.

But at least I did get to see Rampage v Machida, which wasn't bad.

Already knew the result to the Shotgun Vs Liddell fight. Think I've watched that before.

The last match was ok, but Leites couldn't do anything with Anderson taking out his knee. I was suprised he went the distance but was defensive for most of the match.

Who was it that BJ Penn smashed last season in THE most blood thirsty fight I've seen?
He had a cut in the middle of his forehead that kept erupting like Mt Vesivius but the blood ran straight down over his nose and the ref let it keep going.
There was more blood on the Octagon floor than than in a Wes Craven movie. :o

You're probably referring to Clay Guida - looks like 'wild man from Borneo' - just keeps going on front foot, even when he keeps getting hit on his way in.

Have you seen much of him outside the cage?  He is actually a really nice bloke and fully admits that he cant do much else but fight (although not that good these days).  Is actually a genuine guy, but each to their own.

I was watching that last night as well Roost - although I didnt see any hot naked chicks though.

UFC 124 from the w/end.
yeah, not quite "pwned" but Koscheck couldn't really touch GSP at all - mounted almost no offence against him apart from 1 or 2 takedowns vs GSPs 3 or so on Koscheck.
GSP's jab was precise, puffed up Koscheck's (think) right eye for the start of Rd2 - Koscheck probably couldn't see out of it the rest of the fight.

the heavyweight fight Struve v McCorkle wasn't bad, Joe "Daddy" Stevenson got knocked out cold by Mac Danzig in a lightweight fight and the welterweight prelim fight Riddle v Pierson was entertaining cos it was a bit bizarre, with the loser Riddle looking like he didn't take much damage but the winner got cut under one of his eyes, but dominated the fight.

you are a hard man BP, the main card doesn't look that bad at all at the moment ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UFC_127

Welterweight bout:  B.J. Penn vs.  Jon Fitch
Middleweight bout:  Michael Bisping vs.  Jorge Rivera
Lightweight bout:  George Sotiropoulos vs.  Dennis Siver
Welterweight bout:  Carlos Condit vs.  Chris Lytle
Middleweight bout:  Kyle Noke vs.  Chris Camozzi

At least 3 out of these 5 bouts are high chances of being cracker fights - Condit v Lytle could be awesome, Penn v Fitch will at least be interesting and you've got 2 aussies (Sotiropoulos and Noke) on the main card.

Sorry for the late reply. I have been on the Gold Coast for New Years. I got the UFC 110 DVD signed by George Sotiropoulos and BJ. They were also giving out the posters signed by Penn, Fitch, Noke and  Sotiropoulos. I do not think they will be worth anything of real value as everyone that was there got a poster and the fact that BJ was not on the card of the DVD. If you are interested in any of the stuff let me know.

[part reference]

Clay Guida def. Takanori Gomi -- Submission (Guillotine Choke) 4:27 R2

What happened: The “Carpenter” bounced around the cage like Blanka from “Street Fighter” for almost two rounds before catching the “Fireball Kid” with a guillotine from the guard. In the beginning, Gomi tried not to let Guida’s antics get to him, choosing to pump his jab. Guida’s game plan appeared to involve going for takedowns late in the round, once Gomi opened up a little with his strikes. Guida used a Gomi knee strike to take him down before eventually forcing the tap.

Yeah, I can go to the channels, just can't get any audio/video.

Ah well, I'll see if I can get "The Guy" (being my brother-in-law) to fix it a little later :P. Not sure if I can get it alone, might stuff up my TV if I try ::).

Yeh, digital TV really needs an antenna.  You can plug a cable in to it (not attached to an antenna) and it sorta works.

What was the name of the UFC fighter recently dismissed from his daytime job as a high school wrestling coach after he teed off at Barack Obama after a win in the Octagon?
I believe he called Obama an 'idiot' amongst other things and was stood down immediately.

yeah, Dana is trying to get MMA into the main-stream so he stamps low-blow stuff out, quick smart.

I hadn't seen that Machida v Shogun fight in its entirety before - Shogun got robbed.

As much as I like watching Machida fight (those his last 2 have been average performances) good thing Shogun won the re-match last year and is the current UFC light heavyweight champ.

More UFC on OneHD tonight (Fri) and on Sat this week!  ;D

Apologies, meant to have posted this yesterday:

UFC 126 - Anderson Silva vs Vitor Belfort for the UFC Middleweight championship this Sun, 6 Feb 2011 from 1300 AEDST.

Main card
Middleweight Championship bout:  Anderson Silva (c) vs.  Vitor Belfort[1]
Light Heavyweight bout:                Forrest Griffin vs.  Rich Franklin[1]
Light Heavyweight bout:                Jon Jones vs.  Ryan Bader[1]
Welterweight bout:                        Jake Ellenberger vs.  Carlos Eduardo Rocha[1]
Bantamweight bout:                      Miguel Torres vs.  Antonio Banuelos[1]


The championship fight should be a cracker stand-up fight with both Silva and Belfort potentially devastating strikers - the only concern would be that Belfort hasn't fought for almost a year due to injury so there is the slight possiblity that he might get creamed by the champion, but should still be fun to watch.

The other cracker fights on the card are Forrest Griffin v Rich Franklin and the young bucks, Jon Jones v Ryan Bader.

I'm spewing cos I'm working when it will be telecast and will miss the whole thing!  :'(

If you're of age, get to a pub showing it live - should be a corker.
If you're not of age, get your older brother to take you or go to a friend's place who's ordering it through Main Event. ; )

The countdown is an interview based show previewing the main fighters on the upcoming fight card. This one should have BJ Penn and Jon Fitch, Michael Bisping and Jorge Rivera as well as "Aussie" George Sotiropoulos and Dennis Siver ...

Not sure if the Sat show is a repeat or part 2 of the countdown - i'd guess it'll be part 2 but you never know.

UFC 127 in Sydney this coming Sunday but it doesn't look like OneHD is showing it live like they did last year for UFC 110.   :'(

i've seen quite a few 2 and 3 part countdowns - pretty sure the the Velasquez v Lesnar one was 2 or more and the GSP v Kosheck countdown was over 2 parts.

With this Fitch v Penn though it may only be the one countdown so not sure ...

They're also showing UFC 110 tonight, but it's pretty late.

From a TV guide website ...

UFC 110 - On the eve of UFC's return to Sydney, revisit the 2010 event when the world's fastest growing sport first came to Australia. Bisping, Silva, Sotiropoulos, Nogueira and Velasquez were all on the card.

So does the Penn/Fitch fight go down as a draw?
or does Fitch get the win?

It's a draw as the majority of scores had it a draw. Hence "Majority Draw"

Penn won the first, probably eeked a tight second but he got DESTROYED in the 3rd. I think the Compustrike stats for the 3rd round were something like Fitch 134 strikes Penn 0.

this decision was a crock of shower Fukuda dominated him in every aspect yet lost :o wreaks of a setup to try and turn Ring into some sort of draw card bcos he was on TUF... that was one of the worst decisions ive ever seen.

i totally agree but after the fight finished i wasnt even watching the decision bcos it was a no brainer, and then it dawned on me they had said Nick Ring and i was like wtf ??? if u saw the fight u would know that Rings spirit was broken before the 3rd round even started he fought with no urgency (Joe Rogan) bleeding under both eyes taken down countless times...

quick heads up for UFC 128 (next) Sun, 20 March 2011 our time.

will feature the UFC light heavyweight (93kg limit) title bout between Mauricio "Shogun" Rua v Jon "Bones" Jones.

Rua is defending the title for the first time since winning his rematch with Machida back in May 2010.
Jones is the new wunderkind on the block and it is very interesting to see the bookies put him in as a current favourite over Rua ... ????   ???

will send a 'proper' notice middle of next week ...  maybe i'll get to watch this time?

holy shower! that's some pretty big news in MMA circles!!   :o

yeah HP, Jones is exciting to watch - i only saw some hilights in one of the UFC Countdowns but there was vision of him fighitng Mark Hamill (I think) and Jones just tossed him around like a rag-doll ... and Hamill is a big dude ...

as soon as I saw Daley try to king-hit Koscheck from behind quite a bit after the final bell, i knew he would get released by the UFC ... you just can't have that sort of shower happening in any sport ... i can't believe Daley is taking the moral high ground on this, saying he won't fight his Strikeforce welterweight title fight now, cos he's crying he'd be making Dana money ... that's laughable ...  ;D

not all Brits are too feral, Dan Hardy didn't disrespect GSP even though GSP didn't think much of Hardy - we all knew who was goin to win that one though ...  ;)

dudes like Koscheck, Chael Sonnen, etc, etc are just doing it to make themselves more marketable and make the fights bigger - must be something about the American market but they need that WWE/boxing puffery to draw in fans but if i was honest with myself, i may not have gone to watch Rampage v Evans live if they hadn't have had the vebal to and fro in the lead up to the fight ...  ;)

UFC 128 this Sunday, 20 March 2011 - from around 1300 AEDT.

Main event is the UFC light heavyweight (93kg limit) title bout between Mauricio "Shogun" Rua v Jon "Bones" Jones.

Rua is defending the title for the first time since winning his rematch with Lyoto Machida back in May 2010.
Jones is the new wunderkind on the block and it is very interesting to see the bookies put him in as a current favourite over Rua ... ?   (but at least the odds have come in a little bit, $1.50 for Jones v $2.50 for Rua)

Main card
Light Heavyweight Championship bout:  Maurício Rua (c) vs.  Jon Jones
Bantamweight bout:  Urijah Faber vs.  Eddie Wineland
Lightweight bout:  Jim Miller vs.  Kamal Shalorus
Middleweight bout:  Nate Marquardt vs.  Dan Miller
Heavyweight bout:  Mirko Filipović vs.  Brendan Schaub

Bottom two fights should be pretty interesting too - will be interesting to see if Filipovic ("CroCop") has anything left against another young up and comer in Schaub. Marquardt v Miller was s'posed to be Marquardt v Akiyama but Akiyama pulled out (I've seen reports he was concerned about the earthquake repercussions for his family or something like that) - Miller should be a more than adequate replacement so still hoping that one is a corker!

Hopefully i'll get to watch live this time!   ;D
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: CrowsFan on March 15, 2011, 12:20:00 PM
Jon Jones is one of my favourite fighters. He is so exciting in the ring and is still only 23 yet he has defeated some big names in UFC. He beat Ryan Bader back in early Feb to give Bader his first professional loss,  and only twice has he let the fight go to decisions. The only loss he has was against Matt Hamill who he was smashing, with the commentators saying they had never seen Hamill take a beating like that before, which I hadn't either. He only lost due to disqualification for using his elbows to hit Hamill straight down in the face instead of from coming from an angle.

You rarely see the challenger get named favourite with the bookies, but I can see why they have. This guy will be an absolute star!

Yea! I got to watch this time!

Most of the main card was a bit average - "CroCop" Filipovic v Schaub wasn't bad though - CroCop showed improved take-down defence and he was ok on the ground (he's improved a fair bit) and it was competitive most of the way - i was just about to consign Schaub to the end of the 2nd tier of heavyweights (or the top of the 3rd tier) when he got a glancing overhand right across the top of CroCop's temple and CroCop went down hitting his head on the canvas and with his right arm going floppy behind his back/under his body as ref Herb Dean came straight into save him but not quick enough to halt Schaub's fairly big hit to CroCop when it looked like he was already out ...  is a pity it went that way cos maybe CroCop should retire now (he's just taken a few too many big hits and has a few miles on the clock) ...

Rua v Jones - was great although one-sided - Rua just didn't have any weapons to hurt Jones with. The biggest thing was the reach advantage (about 8inches) - Jones just held Rua at bay with one hand and then used the other to pepper him with hits.

the 10mth or so lay-off for Rua was telling (Jones just fought last month and was relatively untouched from that one from what i've read), he just couldn't get any of his controlled aggressive offence going and he got taken down early, regularly and easily.

think it was 2nd round and Jones broke from a clinch up against the cage with a spinning back-fist - that got a bit of crowd reaction in the pub I was watching in!   :D

even though Jones dominated, there was still risk in his style of attack that Rua, i think if he had been "match-fit" might have countered with but otherwise Jones looked in control.

at 23yrs old, Jones is the youngest UFC title holder in its short history.
Interesting to see now if 'team-mates' Jones and Rashard Evans have a title fight next??   ;D

Jones control the entire match over Shotgun ???. Guess the lay-off didn't work as well as preparation with other matches. Didn't Rashard say a while back he doesn't want to face friends? ::). He should just leave it in the ring if he has to fight them.

there no longer training out of the same camp anyway there has been a spat between them over something Bones said and Rashard is a sooky lalala he has been training with some other group, cant think of the name but seriously its not even going to be a good match between those 2 Bones would destroy him inside the 1st round, Sugar is an average sized averaged height and reach counter puncher who is evasive and his first move is always backwards... Bones doesnt mind the distance either he has flashy hands and feet with a mega reach, plain and simple he lets Sugar backpeddle traps him close to the fence game over there is nothing he does nor can do better he has tiny chance of victory which is hardly worth it...
UFC/WE need this fight with Silva quit the foreplay and make these 2 fight it could be the biggest fight in UFC history both have amazing styles Bones will come forward Silva will counter both have a big reach and KO power Silvas juijitsu is stealth Bones wrestling is insane, no matter where this fight goes it would be amazing...

won't happen just yet Marcz, though i agree with you it would be awesome - UFC will want to milk as much possible out of the new light heavyweight champ first.

i think GSP v Silva is more likely if GSP can beat Shields convincingly enough (should be a good one that one).

i think Jones will fight Evans, then Rampage - then a Silva fight might be on??

Close up to the cage the entire time. He went with his trainer too much on that one.

I actually want to see Shields win as well. Not sure why but will be rooting for him ;D.

Unlucky once again J! I can't watch as well.... not enough money for PPV (Never get any PPV's) and not old enough to go to a bar to watch it.

Looking forward to this, looks like a really good card.
GSP vs Shields has had a good leadup and Im pumped for the fight!
Would take a dam good effort to beat GSP.
Machida and Couture is another Im looking frwd to :)

definitely a great card...

Randy Vs Machida :o Machida is so elusive and Randy likes to dirty box, Machida usually lands a counter strikes and Randy has an amazing chin, could be the fight of the night... could also be as boring as batshower if both arent on their game :-\

im guessing similar to the Frank Mir thing, 2 matches against a guy lucky to win the first and then beaten convincingly in the 2nd fight puts u straight to the back of the line...

well from what I read it was a fantastic night with a lacklustre finish.
The Machida KO over Couture was sick apparently, knocking out a tooth.
Nate Diaz got owned  :o cant belive that as I watched that McDonald kick get beat by Condit and he looked pretty poor.
Henderson a spinning backfist knockout would of been kool...
Aldo and Homminick a good 5 round fight by reports.
And the big one, GSP vs Shields was a standup jab fight. apparently very boring.
GSP won convincingly on the scorecards.

Welterweight Championship bout:  Georges St-Pierre (c) DEF Jake Shields. (Unanimous Decision)
Featherweight Championship bout:  José Aldo (c) DEF Mark Hominick. (Unanimous Decision)
Light Heavyweight bout:  Vladimir Matyushenko DEF Jason Brilz. (TKO 1st Round)
Light Heavyweight bout:  Randy Couture Lost to Lyoto Machida (KO 2nd Round)
Lightweight bout:  Mark Bocek Lost to Ben Henderson (KO 2nd Round?)

GSP is a master of disecting others weaknesses and exploiting them...

then there is his visualisation techniques he would be so hard to defeat without knocking him out bcos he is so mentally prepared to win...

saw a sports science special on him the other day, his endurance is 15% better than anyone else they have ever tested and they deal with elite athletes of all sports, his takedown force was equal to Rashard Evans who has 30lbs on him :o and he punches harder than Shogun Rua kicks :o :o

last time he had it he couldve died as he was internally bleeding and hadnt had it diagnosed until he was collapsing etc...

they said it was a result of his diet which was largely made up of eating just meat no veg so he changed his diet...

i think Carwin wouldve learnt his lesson from blowing his load too early against Lesnar...

definitely will end in a KO but look for both to be patient agressive early on until one of them gets tagged with a shot...

then it will be a brawl...

UFC 130: Rampage v Hamill heads up - this Sun, 29 May 2011 from 11am AEST.

Was supposed to be the anticipated Edgar v Maynard III bout for the UFC lightweight title but both had to pull out due to injuries. Still not a bad card, main card is even and should be entertaining - I think I may actually be able to watch this time with no work commitments scheduled!   :)
(fingers crossed)

Main card
Light Heavyweight bout:  Quinton Jackson vs.  Matt Hamill
Heavyweight bout:  Frank Mir vs.  Roy Nelson
Welterweight bout:  Thiago Alves vs.  Rick Story
Heavyweight bout:  Stefan Struve vs.  Travis Browne
Middleweight bout:  Brian Stann vs.  Jorge Santiago
Title: Re: UFC

Light Heavyweight bout:  Quinton Jackson vs.  Matt Hamill
Heavyweight bout:  Frank Mir vs.  Roy Nelson
Welterweight bout:  Thiago Alves vs.  Rick Story
Heavyweight bout:  Stefan Struve vs.  Travis Browne

bold ftw... Hamill has only encountered 1 heavy heavy handed striker before and he was dominated...
Mir has not been the same since Lesnar and Carwin dominated him, Big Country is underrated...
The Pit Bull is just that and Struve is a freak...
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: CrowsFan on May 24, 2011, 12:22:15 PM
Are you talking about when he lost to Rich Franklin or when he was dominated by Jon Jones, but won since Jones got DQ'd?
I agree with all your predictions there marcz. Roy should win, but just hate him so much I don't want him to haha

was that the one where Jones was flinging Hamill around like a rag doll??!?   :o
Hamill's a big dude and it was like Jones was tossing dough in the air to make pizza ...  ;)
(you like that one Marcz??!)   ;)

agree with your match predictions too - just not sure about Mir v Nelson - i used to be a Mir fan but he's been saying some dumb things in his obsession with Brock ...  ???
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: CrowsFan on May 24, 2011, 07:46:36 PM
Yeah j Jones was manhandling Hamill. Hamill is a great wrestler and he couldn't do anything to defend himself against Jones. Hamill only won because the referee adjudged Jones's elbows to be too up and down instead of coming in from the side when he was in full mount
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: RiOtChEsS on May 25, 2011, 11:51:00 PM
 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D lmao J

yeah thats the fight, thing was Jones actually looked at the ref briefly while fully mounted as if to say u can stop this anytime n0w...

then started the 12>6 oclock elbows... soon as Hamill got the option he took it ::)

he is a serial sook, in TUF he was rough with everyone in practice but as soon as he felt hurt he would hava big s00k to Tito...

he tried doing it again against Kieth Jardine, Jardine poked his eye accidently, said he couldnt see but the Dr cleared him to fight...

Guida Vs Pettis was pretty exciting at times and both have so much talent 8).

Tony Ferguson beat out Ramsey (something) for the contract. He became the bad guy of the comp but still won >:(. Knocked Ramsey out in the 1st with a hook just stunning him and it was over straight away.

ok, here we go! UFC heads up for this Sunday!

UFC 131 - Dos Santos vs Carwin - this Sunday, 12 June 2011 main card from 11am AEST

Heavyweight bout:  Junior Dos Santos vs.  Shane Carwin
Featherweight bout:  Kenny Florian vs.  Diego Nunes
Heavyweight bout:  Jon Olav Einemo vs.  Dave Herman
Middleweight bout:  Demian Maia vs.  Mark Muñoz
Lightweight bout:  Donald Cerrone vs.  Vagner Rocha

This seems to be the main contender decider with the winner to fight Cain Velasquez once he's recovered from his injury issues. Unfortunately as per Marcz's pervious posts, Brock has had a recurrence of his diverticulitis and his return is indefinite.

Kenny Florian usually puts on a good show and is it his debut at featherweight??
Maia vs Munoz should be interesting and has possible middleweight contender consequences.

Whoa! Dos Santos picked Carwin apart ...  :o

Only thing that puzzled me was Junior kept going for these body shots and kept putting his head down right in the range of a big right-hand bomb from Carwin that never came/never connected ... think he did it 4-6 times.   ???

He had Carwin under control with his jab, why bother going for the body and keep risking getting knocked out?!?!?

anyway ... HERE WE GO!!!

VELASQUEZ VS DOS SANTOS

as long as Cain can get healthy and isn't too rusty, will be a must-see!!  ;D

mmm ... trilogy.

don't think your mate saw the same fight I recall seeing - pretty sure 1st rd Carwin was ok but he kept getting tagged with Junior's left jab regularly and then later in the round he got rocked with something (maybe glancing right to his temple??) and he went to his knees and Junior pounced on his back and kept swinging his short lefts into Carwin's head ... at one point Junior looks up at Herb Dean as if asking, "when are you gonna stop this thing?" but Carwin was 'defending intelligently' even if he was taking shots to his head.  ;)

think he got up but he was all bloodied up and then end of the round came.
props to Carwin as he ate a lot of punishment that first round but still went th distance - he didn't gas so much but obviously his cardio is still questionable.

Condit defeated Kim via KO (flying knee & punches) at 2:58 of round 1.

Light Heavyweight bout:  Tito Ortiz vs.  Ryan Bader
Ortiz defeated Bader via submission (guillotine choke) at 1:56 of round 1.

Lightweight bout:  Dennis Siver vs.  Matt Wiman
Siver defeated Wiman via unanimous decision (29–28, 29–28, 29–28).

Middleweight bout:  Wanderlei Silva vs.  Chris Leben
Leben defeated Silva via KO (punches) at 0:27 of round 1.

Bantamweight Championship bout:  Dominick Cruz (c) vs.  Urijah Faber
Cruz defeats Faber via unanimous decision (50–45, 49–46, 48–47) to retain the UFC Bantamweight Championship.


Anyway, at least this ... UFC 133: Evans vs. Davis in early August 2011 looks interesting ...  ;)

looks like Jones really took Bader's steam and/or confidence away, cos he was on a bit of a tear ... or maybe i'm not giving enough respect to Tito??

If i was training for UFC id want Tito coaching me bcos he is the best coach ive seen bar none :-X

Leben was an arrogant little turd but he has changed his tune in the last few years, always love his fights just keeps comin forward 8)

I agree that Leben has changed his tune over the last few years.  He is on a bit of a roll at the moment as well.  Surely he has to be close to be in line for a title shot.

fair chance Tito and Rashard will go the distance imo...

Tito doesnt hunt anymore Rashard never has nor will just counter strike and move lots, Tito's ground game is no longer elite so even if he gets Sugar down i dont see him doing much damage, expect Rashard to win on points via his counter punching and stuffing takedowns yawn...
Title: Re: UFC

I think you mean go Bones maca :P
Rampage is overhyped these days in my opinion. Don't get me wrong he is a great fighter, but he isn't as good as he used to be. I guess spending time on his acting career has something to do with it ;)
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: RiOtChEsS on July 19, 2011, 12:33:41 AM
imo its because he doesnt want to adjust his fight plan...

he is happy being the heavy handed madman and guys know how to poke holes in that these days with the homework they put in...

i dont think Rampage respects his legs ;D he never defends leg kicks and eventually becomes an easy target...

I've seen an interview where he is talking about how much he hates training. He says something like how it's not fair that Quinton has to do all the training and how Quinton has to work hard, but then Rampage gets to fight and takes all the glory. It's pretty funny :)

Yeah, the rounds were much longer so more slow than todays matches. The fighter's worked alot on being able to last the distance back then so had to pace themselves. I need to watch a couple of the past events as I don't watch them :'(.

Fuel TV (foxtel) is replaying Seasons 1-9 all over again in the same time slot ;D. Missed season 1 so finally get to watch it :P.

I think it was TUF 7 or 8 with Rampage Vs Mir? The more recent one was him and Forrest I think. Or may have them mixed up :-[.

so Rashard came out on top (think vicious knee to the body in the 2nd) - Rashard should get a crack at the Jones v Rampage winner - doubt Tito would've got the shot if he had beaten Evans but who knows.

Belfort took out Akiyama (he might be on his way out, lost 3 in a row) and the MacDonald kid won, touted to be a possible future welterweigth champ.

missed it, only saw sherdog.com report.

Up next (there is also a UFC Live: Hardy vs Lytle on 14 Aug 2011 but not sure where to see that), UFC 134 isn't looking too bad.

UFC 134 Silva vs Okami for the UFC middleweight title - 27 Aug 2011 in Rio de Janerio - not sure when our telecast will be.

Middleweight Championship:  Anderson Silva (c) vs.  Yushin Okami
Light Heavyweight bout:  Maurício Rua vs.  Forrest Griffin
Heavyweight bout:  Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira vs.  Brendan Schaub
Lightweight bout:  Edson Barboza vs.  Ross Pearson
Light Heavyweight bout:  Luiz Cane vs.  Stanislav Nedkov

Top 3 on the main card are looking solid!  8)
Title: Re: UFC

It was meant to be Evans vs Jones at UFC 133 but Jones got injured so Rashad should have been next in line whether he won or not :P.

Well all the Brazilians won their matches. Silva was quite convincing after a little patch from what I read in the first round. Read Schaub was great first round but tired out after that for Minotauro to capatilise for the win by strikes.

Can never watch these events live (don't like streams as they never work for me) and never buy the events on TV :P. Best I can do it read about it or watch it in a few weeks/months ::).

Jones should move up to heavyweights, he is way bigger than everyone else in the light heavy.  ???
He will stay though, with all the match ups being planned for him.

i don't think it is a good idea for him to move up yet ... he ain't no bean-pole but i'm sure if you stick him next to Lesnar, Carwin etc, etc he will look like one ...

let him see if he can 'clear out' the light heavy-weight div first Maca!
you are a hard man.   ;)

Also ... UFC on OneHD update:

This Sat night, 3 Sept 2011 ~10pm - UFC 123 Rampage v Machida from Nov 2010.
From TVFix: Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson battles karate expert Lyoto Machida. Two future hall-of-famers meet for the third time in BJ Penn versus Matt Hughes. Aussie George Sotiropoulos takes on Joe Lauzon.

The head-liner wasn't a great show but the other fights on the main card were from memory ...

 :o :o :o the diff between light heavy 205lbs and heavy 265lbs is substantial when u consider Brock walks around at 280-290 and then cuts weight like a madcow in the weeks leading up, then after weigh he has 24 hours to replenish/hydrate :o that is insane considering the other divisions go up incrementally in 10-20lbs. 145, 155, 175, 185, 205>>>>>>265

Condit has worked his way up to this fight for a very long time, so great to see him get a chance  8)
If Diaz is that arrogant that he is ignoring Dana's phone calls, then he doesn't deserve the opportunity.

http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Penn-Diaz-On-for-UFC-137-in-Las-Vegas-35424

Diaz originally due to fight GSP for the UFC welterweight title, gets pulled because he went AWOL for 2 press conferences for the title fight - Condit due to fight BJ Penn at same card gets the call up to fight GSP, leaving Penn without an opponent ... Diaz without an opponent, Penn vs Diaz gathers steam in the media and apparently Dana White goes, "You want it, you got it".   ;)

there are still divisional fights to be had before you gun for a superfight, but I would say if GSP retains after next fight, should definitely have a Silva vs GSP superfight on the cards!!  ;D

i dunno, Rampage from what I've seen has some decent boxing chops ... if he can keep his defense there is a small chance that he can tag Jones despite his beanpole reach - from memory Rampage isn't Jones but he's got some decent reach ain't he??

still agree though, Jones would be favourite and to end it first round ... be interesting to see if his recovery from injury is complete.

It is his first proper fight so only on the undercard but I seriously reckon he could make it pretty far in the sport. He is only 19 at the moment so got a big future ahead of him if he continues with it.

Here is a video of Rampage and Bones on Jimmy Kimmel. It's pretty funny :)

To be honest I'm not not entirely sure what style of fighter he is since we live in different states these days. But before he started MMA he did boxing for a while so has a good stand up game, and he is very strong when it comes to submissions too. He said he would send me a link to watch the fight after it has happened so will post it here if he does well ;)

Countdown is on OneHD i think this Sat but on so late - I can't see it anyway with no OneHD down there, so might have to catch it on the net from UFC.com site.

the distance Rampage wants isnt available, when they r apart kicks and jabs keep him at bay and when he gets close he ties him up...

startin to pick him apart Rampage looks lost he doesnt have the urgency required to pressure him he is just standing in front of him as the leg kicks have all but disabled his wheels
Title: Re: UFC

Rampage can't seem to get on the inside to land his shots. Jones certainly using the reach advantage well (From what I hear).

Post by: RiOtChEsS on September 25, 2011, 01:26:54 PM
of who is left i guess Rashard has the best chance bcos he seems to have got under Bones skin, if he decides to fight the way he did tonight tho nobody is going to touch him his physical advantage is just phenomenal...

Takinori Gomi was a Pride champion for ages but the fact that Nate Diaz had that significant reach advantage made it all but impossible for him to utilize his best attributes, these guys with massive reach and strong ground games can nullify the explosive strikers by exchanging from a distance and then clinching/takedowns when they come forward...

The great strikers need to become more well rounded, but even still they r at a major disadvantage...
Title: Re: UFC

Rogan was speculating Jones had broken his foot by the way they were icing/strapping it... no updates as yet tho
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on September 25, 2011, 07:42:06 PM
It's the height and reach that gets to most fighters. I agree with you there Marcz. Although if they have the skill, could find a strategy to overcome it although a guy like Bones has a massive reach advantage not to mention if he wears down his opponent with those kicks of his.

Strikers do have to become more all round to adapt to this changing style. Although overcoming a reach disadvantage means they have to pick apart at their opponents weaknesses which can be hard as they need the openings (Rampage has a little opening before Jones ran away).

Gomi I think has a 1-3 record in the UFC :-\.
Title: Re: UFC

Jon Jones should fight heavyweight, His height and Reach is huge, not to mention the fact he is so skinny he could easily bulk up to the max.

It's unfair to have him fight at LH  :P
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on September 25, 2011, 07:49:31 PM
He could, but why move up when he can dominate at the LH? ::). I'd like to see how he goes in the Heavyweight division but he'd had to bulk up as you said. He's skinny which is why he sticks to LH :P.

Post by: RiOtChEsS on September 26, 2011, 12:30:25 AM
Rampage deserved to be disrespected in fight, he asked for it he was trying to gain an advantage via his smack talk...

Thing that had me interested in the fight was the countdown suggesting Rampage was training hard as ever etc etc...

What happened was Rampage was all hype he had no interest in pursuing and pressuring Jones he already knew he was gonna lose he only wanted a fat payday, i rekn he gave up his back on purpose as Jones was slow to even go for the choke but it was just THERE. I at first felt embarrassed for him, but after more thought i want my next event free, Rogan asked why did u abandon the leg kicks they were working, he replied he is a great wrestler and u dont want to that chance with getting caught >:( he also thanked god for looking after him and not getting too hurt and yelled im getting drunk tonight ::)

if ur too scared to throw a leg kick ffs let us no prior to ordering an event, Jones had every possible advantage and u knew that so if u werent going to take chances dont take the fight >:( i like Rampage and i like watching him on tv he is a classic, but plz dont take anymore fights unless u r going to be that madman that hunts dudes down, go make movies :-X

Jones still fighting from Greg Jackson's school??
that would be the strategy cos they'd be worried about Rampage tagging him with puncher's chance.

I think Rampage just loses heart when he can't make his (now) one-sided attack work (he just wants to knock people out but doesn't want to work for the opportunity, have no idea why he's left his Pride wrestling advantage there) ... pretty sure I saw him like this against Evans - Rashard was too quick and too well-conditioned and Rampage just gave up, he sorta did something similar against Machida and thought he'd lost ...

Let Jones clear out LHW first cos he's young and skinny and then have him move up to HW - like i'd written before, you put Jones next to Carwin and Lesnar and he looks puny ...

i think Dana and UFC matchmaker Joe Silva wouldn't be as hot for that one for the reasons you guys have been discussing re Jon Jones' height and reach advantage ... it'd be nice to think that GSP could be competitive but the size and reach advantage I think would be just too much for him against Silva

Lesnar vs Cain. - Was such a good fight but I don't think Lesnar was really rady for a quality opponent like Velasquez yet after what he had been going through only a few months prior.

Silva vs GSP. Would just be amazing.

Jones vs Silva - As Above.



So until either of those come up, I wont be getting main event for UFC instead opting to watch it for free at the pub :P

UFC 136 - Edgar v Maynard III heads up!!
This Sun, 9 October 2011 from 12pm AEDST

(http://media.foxsports.com.au/pve/UFC-136-Fox-16x9-lo-res.jpg)

I missed the earlier title fight from 2 Jan 2011 (our time) and was a corker from all reports/highlights - Maynard almost put Edgar out in the first round but the champion fought back and almost took the decision. Fittingly, that Edgar v Maynard II ended in split draw so will be interesting to see what happens this time around ...

Main card:

Lightweight Championship bout:  Frankie Edgar (c) vs.  Gray Maynard
Featherweight Championship bout:  José Aldo (c) vs.  Kenny Florian
Middleweight bout:  Chael Sonnen vs.  Brian Stann
Lightweight bout:  Joe Lauzon vs.  Melvin Guillard
Featherweight bout:  Leonard Garcia vs.  Nam Phan
(source: wikipedia.org)

Top four fights should be crackers ...

Find a venue link: http://www.foxsports.com.au/venues/ppv-venue-finder#ufc-136-edgar-v-maynard-iii-/at/
(great for those like me who are too tight to pony up for the pay-per-view, not so hot for those under-age)

Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on October 03, 2011, 07:55:30 PM
Indeed, main card looks solid. Garcia beat Pham last time although many though Pham won that fight clearly, so a rematch was made. Should still be a good fight ;).

So they don't fight and make it worse. It's basically for medical reasons. They have 120 days to rest and get their injury sorted before they can fight again. They can still train though.

Reckon Struve could be the next big thing as he is only 23. Got plenty of time to improve.

edgar vs maynard should be an absolute cracker
and it was!   ;D

sorry for the bad pun on the nickname but ... Frankie had all the answers!!  ;)
worth looking for the youtube this one ... almost a carbon copy of Edgar v Maynard II from Jan this year - Maynard drops Edgar with a right uppercut but this time doesn't gas himself out looking for the finish and Frankie is bloodied worse but eats less damage than I thought he did in Jan and even gets a couple of hits back and survives the round.

For some reason Maynard seems to let Edgar off lightly after an initial stalking period in 2nd round and this allows Edgar to work his way into his rhythm - not sure why Maynard stopped pressing?? Edgar gets back into the fight and continues to pepper Maynard with strikes but Maynard is continually looking for his haymaker or more uppercuts to connect thru to the 3rd.

4th round is much of the same but Edgar goes in for more takedowns and in a scramble tags Maynard with an uppercut of his own that dazes Maynard and is quickly followed up with 2-3 right hooks right 'on the button' and Maynard goes down with Edgar goin in for the kill with lefts to the head and with Maynard not defending ref Rosenthal calls it.

Aldo V Florian - Aldo by unanimous decision 49-46 with Florian unable to do damage from the clinch and Aldo full mount x2 fluidly in 2 different rounds.

Sonnen v Stann - Sonnen is a clear class above and submits Stann via arm triangle choke(?) in 2nd round - post-fight in the cage with Joe Rogan, he calls out Anderson Silva, says he "absolutely sucks" and challenges him saying if he wins Silva should leave the middleweight division but if he loses that he'll leave the UFC forever! Classic!   :D

didn't see the rest but Lauzon v Gulliard sounds awse with Lauzon coming out on top 47secs into rd1 with (I think) a rear-naked choke!

Can't wait for Velasquez v Dos Santos but GSP v Condit next at UFC 137 end of Oct 2011 ...

Guillard wanted Lauzon, Lauzon demolishes him to break him streak 8). Considering Guillard was in title contention, Lauzon was way off the title so it may push him quite a bit back now! I like Lauzon if you didn't notice :P.

Sounds like some good fights with Aldo and Edgar! The Pham Vs Garcia match could be another I look up when I get the time. Sounded like a great PPV.

I liked Lauzon since I saw him on UFC 5. He seems quiet but very capable fighter. Guillard wanted to fight a submission man and Lauzon caught him with some punches before submitting him. Think he didn't expect much of Lauzon to go down that fast, 47 seconds :o.

that was a great fight - Silva hadn't been 'touched' for 2yrs or more (i think) and Sonnen beat up on him bad but was a bit too eager to do so ... he had clearly won all 4 rounds going into the final 5th round but he kept wanting to beat up Silva so bad he fell to his weakness of submission defence when it looks like he forgot all about it just wanting to keep beating up on Silva from top mount ... not smart imo ... but a great fight nonetheless ...  ;)

it was weird, he had it in the bag - could've just sat on him (apart from getting stood up by ref) for the round but he just wanted to keep pounding and didn't notice that his torso getting too high up in Silva's guard ... it just seemed really dumb when he's usually has decent tactics ...

FIGHT OF THE NIGHT.  This was awesome, Lauzon gave a flush left on the nose which put Melvin in a daze and he went to ground.  Joe was then clinical in taking his back and flattening him out and finishing with a rear naked choke.

They said 47seconds but I re-wound and watched again and when Melvin tapped there was 4:15 left on the clock.

I missed it as predicted Shaggy.
Sounds like BJ lost a bit of the 'hunger' that I thought he might get back with such a dangerous opponent as Diaz - usually gets him up for it, usually a fierce competitor. I saw quotes that he indicated that he didn't want to hang around if he couldn't compete at the highest level.

Mirko 'Cro Cop' Filipovic should've retired a number of fights ago - he was never the same after that Gonzaga fight which I think was a bit of a 'fluke' (Gonzaga's head kick) - just stopped him pulling the trigger on that awesome high leg kick which was his most dangerous weapon. Think the Pat Barry fight prolonged things for a bit in his mind ...

now, how do I get to watch UFC on Fox (Velasquez vs Dos Santos) in Australia??!?
I cannot find the pay-per-view info which makes me wonder if it will be in pubs and I haven't seen anything about it being broadcast free-to-air in Australia yet ...

BJ said: “Hats off to Nick Diaz. He’s the man. It’s probably the last time you’re going to see me in here. I can’t perform at the top level,” Joe Rogan then asked if he was retiring and he responded with: “I got a daughter, another daughter on the way. I don’t want to go home looking like this.”

UFC (Dana) had been talking about this for some time - that is that headlining/main event fights should still be 5-rounds even if not for a title, so this is the first one of those ... you can find a link but I couldn't be bothered to find to post ...

Torent sites.  You will need to download a torrent application first (I prefer uTorrent as it doesnt load a whole lot of extra shower) and then you download the reference files (referred to as torrent files).  They are only a few kb.  You then load that file in to the torrent application and down she comes :)

isohunt.com
eztv.it (best site for tv shows)

When you search for tv shows at those websites you type the show like this:  the big bang theory s04e05

Nah not tonight valk. Being shown Wednesday night though, for those in WA it is being shown at 9pm, for the others on the Eastern side of the country it is at midnight ;)

Also went and watched the movie Warrior last night, thought it was probably the best fight movie I have seen in a long time (better than The Fighter and The Wrestler). I would advise everyone to go see it! Even has some cameo appearances from some UFC fighters such as Rashad Evans, Rumble Johnson etc. Even has Kurt Angle in it haha

even my father-in-law who loves his movies but isn't 'yet' into UFC/MMA (i'm working hard on him and my brother-in-law to get them interested  ;)) said it was a good movie - he isn't generally a harsh critic movie-wise but from a pure fighting movie POV it must have a bit more in it than just fight scenes ...  ;)

UFC 138 - Leben v Munoz: me, the wife and our little one had to head down south (Bunno for the other sandgropers) for my nephew's 18th b'day but my wife booked us into a motel for the w/end which luckily meant foxsports cable and therefore good ol' OneHD.  :D

The only issue was the timing but I set my alarm for 5.30am AWST which was lucky cos I must've mis-read when the main event was on (thought it was 6am)! So there I am in the motel room with my wife and child asleep and I wake them up with UFC 138 at 5.30am! i'm only a little obsessed ...  ;)

haha nice one J, i usually do early wake ups on flower all sleep monday for NFL games 8)

1st fight Guillotine was Kody Miller esque 8)

Perosh standing is a fish out of water, but he is swimmin on the ground...

Che Mills was on point with those knees, id noticed Cope's tendancy to duck when he is rushed on TUF, he fights like Sugar... Yawn :P

Abedi has potential but when touched he threw it in quickly, Pitbull looked composed, striking was accurate and pointy...

Pickett hung in the pocket swinging for the fences 8) Barao was switched on tho and didnt miss a chance, like to see em go again 8)

Munoz was a beast he is gonna make some entertaining fights, Love Leben but id have to say he was out of shape and i think he quit :-\

yeah he was bleeding and cut but that cut was above the eyebrow and he complained he couldnt see, the ref said u tell me u cant see and im gonna stop it, he said i can see... a minute later he went to his corner and said he cant see ??? i think he knew he was gassed from 3 desperation gullotine attempts and knew he was done :-X

His corner quit for him.  If you listen to Leben during the timeout to check the cut he said to his corner that he couldnt see out of the eye.  When the ref asked him he said he could see so he could continue to fight.  Leben told his corner at the end of the round that he couldnt see but would still fight but they decided to call it. 

It was the right move and I dont think Leben quit
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: RiOtChEsS on November 10, 2011, 01:06:34 PM
yeah i heard all that, one guy was also telling him Munoz was tired but Leben just kept saying he couldnt see, i just dont buy he couldnt see with the cut well above the eye, i think he wanted an out and he knew by saying he couldnt see repeatedly it would be stopped, he was clearly under done, breathing heavily within 2 minutes and went for 3 desperation (out of position) guillotine chokes, he has set his own standard when it comes to gutting out fights and he was disinterested and out of puff in that fight imo

must've been cos i still wasn't quite awake but i thought Leben still had some power in his hands at that stage - Munoz still hasn't worked out staying in the pocket or side-step yet, but i get that it ain't easy.

i do agree Marcz that he expended a lot of energy in those desperation choke attempts but he also used a lot in bottom position early on ...

after all my excitement, i might had to catch the replay for Velasquez vs Dos Santos cos a mate is over from the east coast and the only chance for catch up time might be breakfast at Cottesloe beach this Sun - broadcast time for WA is 10am ...   :'(

Heavyweight division is back to life IMO.
JDS, Cain, Lesnar and Overeem are the clear top 4.
We could see any combinations with these 4.
JDS vs Overeem, JDS vs Lesnar, Cain vs Overeem, Lesnar vs Cain 2.

In my opinion he can take them all down..
His hands have huge power, he is just a bit slow with strikes in comparison to Cain/JDS.
In my opinion he can still get the title back.

Not fighting for a year against a quality opponent with the pressure of defending.. to much to overcome.

Wish I could get hair as curly as his :P.

Cain looked alright for the first 30 or so seconds. Then he got caught by that big shot :o. Cain never got into his groove.

The undercards weren't that bad either! Caceres (Former TUF fighter) had a great match (can't remember the other guy's name)! Then DeMarques Johnson's knockout was pretty sweet on Harvison 8). Other fights were pretty decent and the live stream off facebook was probably the best one I've seen for quite some time.

i actually think Cain had the better of the fight at that stage (inside leg kicks) but the way those two styles matchup in the striking game was always going to be the determining factor... JDS can land from odd angles that would be difficult to telegraph, while Cain loves to counter hook, i think Cain is the more well rounded fighter but JDS has sleeping pills in his hands...


on a side note do u think we should set up a UFC results thread so its easier for guys to avoid spoilers and others can discuss results?

Not sure, doesn't hurt but we don't post a whole lot in here to not keep up with.

Maybe we should just list Spoiler Alert and then space 10 lines before saying it. Or we could just make a new thread for results although would only be posting in there during/after main events which are every couple of weeks.

I think it has to be a bit of 'buyer beware' in that we all know that we are likely to be talking about past fights (whether main events or TUF) so you have to be a bit careful.

eg, I didn't get to watch Cain vs JDS live so I made sure I didn't check this UFC thread til today after watching the replay last night.

btw, so OneHD showed Guida vs Henderson first and then Cain vs JDS in the live Sun morning telecast??!

Henderson looks slick, and large for that weight class... future champ

that's why i've nicknamed him 'Blanka' (from Streetfighter2) in addition to his moniker of 'the carpenter' and cos he looks like a 'wild man from Borneo'.

Edgar vs Henderson is gonna be a corker from all indications ... will be interesting to see if Edgar can utilise his speed and movement against Henderson like he did against Maynard. Henderson looks a lot quicker and potentially more strategic than 'the bully' Maynard.

Henderson is a huge 'lightweight' too like Maynard - did you see his 'tree-trunk' legs?!?!!  :o

Good win to JDS, and not taking anything away from him cos he thoroughly deserved it but Cain def looked like he had the 'ring-rust' of all 13mths+ he's not had a fight.

soooo looking forward to both Lesnar vs Overeem AND hopefully JDS vs winner Lesnar-Overeem!!!!   :o

nah, this is gonna be awesome - will really test Edgar - Benson is huge!

yeh, I know Maynard is too but he did have Edgar on the ropes in both recent fights but Benson seems to be willing to be more technical if necessary and I doubt he'll make the same mistake Maynard did twice in not following Edgar up when he tagged him in both fights ...

i saw a replay on 7TWO around when it first started of the Strikeforce title fight between Cung Le vs Frank Shamrock - Le's kicks were powerful!  :o

but Wanderlei has had a long career and he has been taking quite a fair few shots to the head in his more recent fights ... that's got to put some mileage on the gas-tank and durability-wise ...

But the thing is, Wanderlei is easily gassed and can't take hits to the head like he used to be able to do. It's a shame really because I do like Wanderlei but he should have given it up a while ago.

I'm sure they will show it again. Check Fuel TV as they show quite a bit of UFC related things (TUF, Countdowns, Past Fights, etc). But this is if you have foxtel :(.

Anybody interested in a UFC-Fighting stable sort of game. Similar to what Maca done although this will be done through Random org where we can control the variables :P. Very casual by the way!

The 41 year old is incredible haha. Hendo now gets to chose which title he has a shot at (Jones or Silva) after a 5 round war with Shogun.
Wandy TKO'd Cung Le while Faber dispatched Bowles.

how frickin good was it Maca?!?! we'll tell the people ...  ;)

Rua vs Henderson

I've always liked Shogun but now I know why he got the nickname from his Pride-fighting days and he gets major props for guts and heart ... what a warrior - he should have been out in the 1st & 2nd rounds but he held on and even came back and somewhat dominated the last 2 rounds of this 5-round epic - I thought he might have fought his way back for a draw even.

Henderson had nothing left in that last round but you have to agree with the decision cos Henderson doled out so much more damage in the first 2 rounds on Shogun, than Shogun did on Henderson in the last couple.

Wanderlei vs Cung Le

Another classic and it was vintage Wanderlei at the end although Le I think had the better of the first round to round and a half. Le's kicks (side kicks and spinning kicks) were awesome as well as a spinning back fist in the first round that had Wanderlei a little wobbly, but i think Le made a mistake in not following up and his conditioning for later rounds was questionable.

Wanderlei had a good strategy in standing really far off but 'closing the distance' in explosive bursts and he used this to devasting effect to finish Le off - it did look like the longer the fight went, the more likely Wanderlei was going to come out on top.

Faber vs Bowles
was interesting for how slick Faber was. Bowles was no slouch but Faber just looked sharp as.
I missed the the earlier Cruz vs Faber from earlier this year, but if Faber can hold this form, the next UFC bantamweight title fight between the two of them is going to be a cracker!!

Kampmann vs Story was solid too ...

I even saw the Ryan Bader vs Jason Brilz prelim and Bader was sharp and knocked Brilz out.

can't wait for Jones vs Machida next on 11 Dec and then Lesnar vs Overeem (think) new year's day?  :o   :D

depends what sort of shape he rocks up in ... i reckon he was injured or unfit when he faced Shogun the second time.
he also looked a bit lack-lustre against Rampage when they fought Nov 2010.
haven't seen his win against Couture from April this year ...

if it is the Shogun/Rampage version of Machida, he is goin to get pwned by Jones ...  :o   ;)

He told me that the reason he looked a bit gassed was because he kinda hesitated at first about smashing the guy up because he had obviously never done it before, so obviously will improve on that.
You're right about his reach, it is massive! He is 6"2' which is 188cm or something, but reach is over 190!

Yeah that second double hammerfirst really destroyed the other guy didn't it. You just see his lights go out haha!

He was fighting at middleweight which is 84kg or 185 pounds. Could beef up and go to light heavyweight but don't think he will.

He will improve a lot of he gets with a gym in US. Experience helps and he is only 19 like you said.

I'm 190cm and 80kg, so I'd probs be a Middleweight as well :)

So I promised I would give you a link to my bro's fight once it was put up on youtube and it finally has been. So if you want to see my bro's first fight click the link. Not the best fight you will ever see, but not bad for a guy who is 19 and is moving over to America for 6 months next year to start training in their gyms ;)

BRACE FOR WAR 12 - Dallas Wilkinson Reed VS Rob Wilkinson  (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmOmuRCx2ow)

Also regarding the nickname, that was given to him by the announcer about 10 minutes before the fight...
Still, first fight jitters but came away with the win 8). Can tell he likes his punches. With his size, would be great if he learnt submissions. The other guy was open for a rear naked and armbars with his arms just wailing in the air! Good luck to him training in America 8). Going to be travelling (gym to gym) or settle down in a gym and train?

Costa Phillipou :o

He is actually really good at submissions, he trains with probably the best Australian fighter who is not in the UFC. That guy has never been submitted so teaches him a fair bit. Rob's favourite is the triangle but being on top couldn't really pull that off ;)
Regarding America he is going to LA (I think) to live with a mate from school and there is a gym nearby which is where I think he will be going. The only UFC fighter at that gym that he is aware of is Stefan Struve, which is probably good for him considering his hight. Also he wants to learn kickboxing and the dutch are probably the best in the world at that so would be helpful. There is another gym about an hour away that has a lot more UFC fighters but can't remember who they are...

Jones got tested, but still got the win. That standing guillotine sounded brutal! Seemed pretty arrogant after the fight  ::)
Mir finished Big Nog, Broke his arm! Mir was screwed but rolled out and put on a kimura.
Lil Nog TKo'd Tito the White Goodman.

Hominick lost in 7 seconds! Want to see some videos of these fights. Will go searching on youtube.

The Phillipou KO sounded brutal as well.

nah, Jones guillotine on Machida nowhere near as brutal as Mir kimura on Nogueira was!!!  :o    ;)

was watching at a big sports bar and at first people clapped the submission but then the slow mo replays came on and you can see Nogueira's shoulder pop out and everyone collectively went, "ooh" "ouch" "eww" and various other utterances of 'pain sympathy' and everyone wasn't so hot on it after that - but impressive by Mir due to Nogueira's BJJ pedigree and seeing reports of his post-fight interviews, he says he hopes Nogueria will be ok and that he's idolised him for a long time.

Jones' guillotine was impressive nonetheless - first time I've seen a standing guillotine live.

Tito's ok, I think they set him up to be the 'heel' most of the time ... Lil Nog impressive though - it's funny, i'm saw him fight Jason Brilz earlier this year or last year and he didn't look as good. Tito has been up and down and then he submits Bader - just shows at top flight competition in any sport, if you're just a bit off your game you can get toasted!  ;D

Hominick lost in 7 seconds! Want to see some videos of these fights. Will go searching on youtube.

The Phillipou KO sounded brutal as well.
missed Jung over Hominick but saw bits of the Phillipou KO - can't remember where these were but prelims will be replayed this week i think ...

ok, next on the menu is Lesnar vs Overeem on or around new year's eve!!   :D

UFC 140 - best pay per view in a long while.

Little Nog v Tito - Awesome as I hate Tito
Big Nog v Mir - Holy flower what a submission
Jones v Machida - Jones was expected to win, nice standing guillotine and was put on a little differently as well.
Jung v Homick - Landed right on the button then finished on ground.

I cant remember who was in one of the under card fights but DAMN.... he must have connected with about 10 BIG shots that eventually finished his opponent.  Krystoff was also easily beaten in his match - quite surprising.

Was fantastic really has me even more pumped for Overeem vs Lesnar! Plus Cerrone and Diaz will be interesting. (Cerrone!)

Overeem tells how family life and cutting wait was the cause for a poor streak of form a while back.
Now as a heavyweight he feels he can't be defeated!

Lesnar says he is as fit as ever and wants to knock Overeem out. Tells about his Diverticulitis which was intriguing.

CANNOT WAIT!!

he just didn't have the time to build the experience he needed to go toe-to-toe with the good strikers in the division ... when he'd get hit I reckon he tended to just cover up his head and start back pedaling into the fence - nothing against his training but he just didn't have the time to 'mature' into the well-rounded fighter you have to be for top-flight MMA.

I agree, he is an athletic freak - no dude that big should be able to move as fast as he does!  :o

The queries I had going into the fight were ...

A) how much would Lesnar be affected by the 2nd bout of his diverticulitis?
B) how good was Overeem's form streak of 10wins, 1 NC really?

A) looked more to be experience technique issues than anything physical/training-prep wise
B) i was thinking that out of the 11 unbeaten fight streak, only 2-3 would you consider to be top-flight opponents and he hadn't fought Fedor at the top of his game ...

Overeem was pretty impressive and blew my query B) out of the water!  :)

Going to be interesting to see whether Junior's speed and technical striking are going to make a big difference.
Cain looked really rusty, so I wonder whether Overeem might try and take Dos Santos down due to size/strength differential or if he will be able to stalk Junior round the cage and whether Junior's speed will negate that part of Overeem's arsenal?  ???  ;)
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Maca24 on January 01, 2012, 04:39:19 PM
I am absolutely shattered  :'(

Think we all need to give Brock more credit than just being a freak physically.
He fought 6 fights, with limited MMA experience.
5 of those 6 have been UFC Champs and the other 1 (Overeem) is the future champ.
Only 3 people in the last 15 years in the HW division have defended the title twice consecutively. (Lesnar, Sylvia, Couture)
Of those 3, brock held the title for the longest period.

Think we have to admit that Lesnar is one of the greatest UFC Heavyweights in history.
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: BratPack on January 01, 2012, 04:50:00 PM
I think Lesnar's success is overblown by who he is personally. Who'd he beat that was really special? Herring was a shell of his Pride days, Mir is second tier, Randy was declining and the only reason he beat Carwin was because Josh "Won't Stop A Fight Till A Man Is Half Dead" Rosenthal was the ref and Carwin gassed and even Carwin has being found wanting against guys like Cain and JDS.

I think as an athlete he is/was great and he's been great for the UFC but greatest in history is another thing.

Agree with all your points Maca, he fought top-level competition from the get go and had barely any time to really learn the craft but that can't be a concession to call him a greatest in history, though they may make him a hall of famer just on the amount of interest he generated in the UFC?

BP, I didn't see that Lesnar v Carwin fight live, but from replays and the fact that Lesnar came back and finished Carwin I reckon tends to show that Rosenthal made the right call?? I don't think it was that close to the bell was it?  ???

Watched the match on youtube earlier (as with the Hendricks Vs Fitch fight). Lesnar kinda looked out of place with Overeem using those vicious Knees to the body :o. Lesnar didn't look like himself in the octagon against Overeem :-\.

I wouldn't go as far to say Lesnar is one of the greatest Heavyweights of all time. Shame he entered the sport late. If he had entered some time before then, he may have been a Beast at HW as he could fix up his striking and other parts in his arsenal. Not to say he wasn't a good/great HW, just probably not in that top tier to be considered out of all time.

Overeem is a great stand up fighter but his opponents as J said were never top class besides a few. However, he did compete in other organisations as well (e.g K1). Against JDS will be a very good fight. Both are strikers, JDS with his hands and Overeem with his legs potentially.

definitely not a great and agree with BP's points, i think Dana saw a potential promotional cash cow, Lesnar talks alot of shower and it sells PPV he had done it before so it was always going to be a great business decision with his WWE fan base and his "heel traits" that the mma world would dislike... i was a huge Brock fan in WWE when i was younger so i was always hoping he would do well and i dont think he could have achieved much more tbh.

agree with J also when he gets tagged he turtles up and back peddles, he is open for uppercuts... the point im making about being a "natural striker" is he isnt instinctive and u cant teach that... its all good and well to be taught this and that in the gym and feel like uve got it down in sparring but when its a real fight do u trust it? do u feel it? i dont think he did for whatever reason he cant manufacture shots nor telegraph them.

Watched UFC Countdown for Aldo Vs Mendes. Aldo looks beastly with those kicks :o. But Mendes' plan is probably just to take him down and control him from there.

Belfort Vs Johnson could be a good one 8).

Yeh Rumble is 11 pounds over!!! wtf haha.
He is usually fighting at welterweight, yet if he really wanted to he could fight at light heavy.

In all seriousness though it is very disrespectful to Vitor who was able to make weight.
Could turn out to be a light heavy bout really.

Rumble had actually made weight, he was down at 186 about an hour before the weigh in, but he could barely stand so a doctor forced him to rehydrate so that was why when he was weighed he was up at 197

Vitor wanted to fight so Dana made changed the fight to 205.  Rumble then missed that weigh in the following morning (Fight morning), he came in at 211.  He then had until lunch time to make 205 which he did.

from wikipedia:

Main card
Light Heavyweight bout:  Rashad Evans vs.  Phil Davis
Middleweight bout:  Michael Bisping vs.  Chael Sonnen
Middleweight bout:  Demian Maia vs.  Chris Weidman

Both Evans v Davis and Bisping v Sonnen should be no#1 contender fights for Lightheavy & Middleweight respectively ...  ;)

Wasn't the most exciting UFC event I have seen.

Evans won my unanimous decision, all judges scoring it 50-45.
Sonnen won by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)
Weidman won by unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27)

I thought that too ... that Sonnen was gonna run thru him but props to him, he is pretty close to elite to hang with Sonnen like that!  :o

"Wasn't the most exciting UFC event I have seen." - yeah, i thought Evans v Davis was gonna explode but Phil isn't up to it ... yet.  ;)

Sonnen won for sure, but I thought at least all 29-28s ... that 30-27 is a joke!
I get that Sonnen took Bisping down at least 1-2 times in each round but he did nothing whilst having him on the ground and Bisping got up fairly easily 3/4 of the time from my memory ...
i just don't like the 'bias' towards the wrestling - i get that a takedown is effort and skill but i just think the weighting is a bit too much, just bring it back a touch - Bisping controlled that fight for the first 2 rounds ...

Maia didn't look prepared and his stand-up strategy was pretty flawed as Rogan was commenting (think Bisping would have won easily if they had faced off).

Davis - not ready for that next level but he learnt a lot and didn't get finished - would like to see him face off with Bader next!!  ;)  [though I think Bader is next fighting Rampage! in Japan in 3 weeks or so?]

let's see ... what's next??   ;D

UFC 143 - Diaz vs Condit - this Sun 5 Feb 2012
Ok, with GSP on 'the shelf' cos of injury we get an interim welterweight title fight ...   :D

My predictions are:

Sonnen over Bisping
Weidman over Maia
I would have gone all the other way around :P. But a tad biased of course.

The Sonnen Vs Bisping match was pretty decent. Bisping controlled the stand up quite well but as you said J, the takedowns and ground control got Sonnen over. But think the fight only did good things for Bisping, as he held his own against Sonnen.

The Evans Vs Davis match literally put me to sleep. The heat of the day made me fall in and out of sleep from like round 3 to the end. Evans' experience certainly showed, saw those crucifixions he got Davis in first 2 rounds. The size didn't really effect him too much but Jones I think is even bigger, so will certainly take somewhat a greater strategy to overcome him.

I'm going for Condit in that fight against Diaz :P.

Props to Bisping that was the best id seen him look and Sonnen looked a little off.

Dana actually tweeted he had Bisping winning on his card...

Weidman looked impressive considering he took the fight on 11 days notice, heaps of potential 8)

Well Rob won his fight. KO'd the guy 4 minutes and 55 seconds in to the first round. From what I have been told (from Rob) it was 2 knees to the sternum followed by a head kick that knocked him down. Then he stood over him and punched him 3 times before the ref called it.

Wasn't shown live by will be able to watch it from monday onwards for $15. Could be worth a watch ;)

Edgar should slide down to 135 he has lorded over guys 20lbs bigger than him for the last two years...

I thought after his last 2 Maynard fights that he could overcome the size differential in most cases but he didn't have any 'answer' for Benson and his tree-trunk legs!  :o

if he can fight his way back, it'd be interesting to see if he can work out a different strategy to catching the kick - maybe some high-level judo sweeping (know it's not that easy though)?

i like Rampage and i like watching him on tv he is a classic, but plz dont take anymore fights unless u r going to be that madman that hunts dudes down, go make movies :-X
what was up with Rampage being over the weight limit??
Bader impressive nonetheless.

another great card.

Boetsch back from the dead, snatching the win from the jaws of defeat!!  :o
Still not as good as Russow over Duffee - that was a comeback.  ;)

some really cool sweeps from Akiyama to Shields but no damage done and Shields controlled it all the way, even with Akiyama being a 'monster' to take down ...

next big one is Jones v Evans in April and i'll be missing it ...  :'(

he blamed some illness/injury for the weight issue, but imo he was just after another payday, stand still ya get left behind

yeah, agreed - similar sort of thing when he fought Evans, you would've thought he was up for that given the TUF shennanigans??  :o

saw reports attributed to Edgar that he felt his speed and quickness were enough to get him through and that not having to cut gave him an advantage ... and as above, i thought he was right having dealt with Maynard but Henderson was a different proposition ...

yep Maynard is a big 155 but he is somewhat rigid unlike benhen who is fluid/flowing in his attacks, not taking anything away from maynard, its just his style makes him easier to touch cos he is right there in front with little head movement.

Yeah, that was crazy. Read it was first a split to Johnson, then majority to Johnson and then finally Majority Draw. Shame it wasn't decided on the night with that 4th round but means they have to fight again 8). I liked the match and McCall could have won it in the last round, but he was playing up to the crowd :P.

Yeah, it's a bad matchup with Jones' height and reach. But I like Rashad which is why I've followed him since he was on TUF (as he was the underdog as a heavyweight). It'd certainly be a MASSIVE upset if Rashad comes through 8).

The dialogue is in another language but subtitles are there to be able to translate. The fights were the Coaches' + Dana's voiceovers in English. Some nice fights and some of those guys look fierce in the cage :o. Should be a good season, maybe better than the normal one currently going.

Evans seemed to be fighting more to survive than to win with Jones controlling the match quite easily. Although, it showed somebody can go the distance with Jones (think the first match since his Bonnar fight in which he's done so). Now comes Hendo for him...

hmmm ... Hendo for Bones next - only risk would be Jones getting over confident (because he dealt with Rampage's knock-out power so easily) and Hendo knocking him out in rd1 or 2??  :-\    ;)

Gotta favour Bones in that fight although People are always saying Hendo's in with a puncher's chance :P.

UFC on Fox 3 was on last night. Diaz Vs Miller. I'm gutted as was sleeping through the entire Event while it was recording. Go to see, it stopped just over a minute of actual fight time for the entire thing, so missed the ending!

On the card itself, gotta say some of the Prelims were awesome to watch. Gaudinot Vs Lineker was a deserving fight of the night, those guys were smashing each other! Dodson Vs Elliot was another good one, with a few somersaults and even a cartwheel in there! These two flyweight bouts were my favourite of the night by far, looks to be a very exciting division 8). Belcher Vs Palhares wasn't long but was quite intense knowing Palhares and his leg locks.... And Belcher walked right into them and came out of it on top.

Diaz and Hendricks winning puts them near the top of their weight classes, with Diaz set to face the winner of Benson Vs Edgar :o. That may be an interesting match up whoever he faces.

The UFC announced on Thursday evening that an international edition of the reality show will see fighters from Australia and the UK go head-to-head in a season that will echo the USA v UK series, coached by Dan Henderson and Michael Bisping.

Yeah I was chatting to my bro about it yesterday marcz. Unfortunately there are a few issues stopping him from trying out for it. The first issue is that you must have had 3 fights to try and get in, but my bro has only had 2, it's also for featherweights so have to be under 77kg, which my bro is not. And lastly you have to be in Australia for the trials, but currently he is over in America training.

Kinda sucks he can't try out cos it would have been cool. Maybe he will try out for another season next year if he is still in the US :)

Think it's the rematch or 3rd match between them off the top of my head. Tito's retirement and some are calling for Forrest to retire as well although doubt it. Just checked and the 3rd match, with it tied 1-1.

Can't wait to see how the rematch between Silva and Sonnen plays out. Will be interesting if Sonnen can wrestle Silva down again or Silva can keep it standing alot more this time around.

Cote also comes back to fight Cung Le. Love watching Cote fight as he's one of my favs. Stun Gun Vs Maia on the prelims could certainly be a great match to watch! Hoping to catch it on FB if they show them (pretty sure they do). Can't believe McKenzie Vs Mendes got promoted to main card ahead of that :o.

Turns out Sonnen trains at another Team Quest gym about 30 miles away, but does come up to the other one every so often to help out. The head trainer at the gym where my bro is is a guy called Matt Lindland. He got a silver medal at the Sydney Olympics in wrestling so knows his stuff. Although you may know him more for his self KO in the UFC... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZyMnUkCEeI (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZyMnUkCEeI)

My bro has only been in Portland for a couple of days so still waiting to find out exactly what is going on, but he said he has been told he can join the team training sessions immediately, which is invite only. He's only with the amateur team at the moment, but hopefully can train with the pro team further down the track... He is also hoping to get a fight whilst he is over there. Will keep you updated :)

ooh! I think you mentioned he was 'just right' for middleweight previously ...

wish him well for us CF!

i've been a neglecting my MMA of late - what's been happening??
I missed seeing it, but know that Silva handed Sonnen his tongue back and heard Sonnen was gracious in defeat.  ;)

Well my bro's fight was earlier today. As you all know most people cut weight to make the weigh in, however since he was moving up from middle to light heavy he did not need to do that. In fact he told me he was drinking water before the weigh in to try and weigh more, yet he still weighed in 2.25kg UNDER the limit hahaha!!!

Anyway just saw his status on FB and says he won via submission at 1 min 42 seconds of round 1. Very proud of him :)

Got to the pub a bit late, just enough to catch tail end of Shields v Herman but luckily ...

Cerrone v Guillard worth the 'price' of admission alone!!!  ;)
What a cracker - definitely worth checking out the replay!

Henderson v Edgar - tight again but Frankie had no answers (sorry) for Benson.
Split decision could've gone either way but again, Henderson looked like he hadn't been touched whereas Frankie's always looking beat up.  :o

I think contraversial only if they scored it by rounds (as I understand the judges are supposed to do) cos I thought Frankie had 3 rounds to 2 but control, significant strikes and damage-wise Henderson wins.

i dunno, judging is always gonna be subjective and someone is always gonna be disappointed in a close one ...

Jon Jones v Dan Henderson for UFC light-heavy title next - 2 Sept for us I think??

I saw that card, looks like another big card for Fox which is good, as free for us :D.

And pretty sure it's Sept 2 for us J as the date is usually a day ahead for the US. Not a great card compared to some of these Fox cards I have got to say! Still, will be interesting to see how Jones goes.

And if people haven't heard (probably have), Sonnen moving up to Light Heavyweight and facing Griffin. Already started trolling Jones and looks to be working on him! Although, last time he fought Griffin, he was submitted so we'll see how he goes this time :P.

Haha yeah the other guy seemed pretty rubbish, although had won 5 of 8 (I think) before that. Also before he finally tapped to the choke he had already tapped twice in the fight. Once from strikes and another a few seconds before tapping to the choke. Honestly if you are going to tap to strikes I don't think you should even be allowed in the cage/ring!

Also don't know where they got the nickname from, it seems every time he has a fight someone comes up with a new name for him. Personally I call him Bobcat ;)

If I knew how to make a wiki page I would do it haha, but sadly I don't know how, or have the time to do it. Yeah the fight was light heavy, whereas his last 2 fights have been at middle.

He's very confident on the ground, which could stem from all the fights we used to have/still have when I'm home. I've always been heavier so used my weight on the ground as my only advantage, but he has learnt how to deal with it fairly easily ;)

I don't mind Bisping, he is a pommy git but I reckon it's a put on bravura to promote his fights - Stann is tough but he's still a few fights away from top tier imo

Yeah, it would be good if someone can open up light-heavy again but i'm actually looking forward to at least one of the proposed superfights to happen between GSP, Silva & Jones - GSP v Silva is unlikely due to the Spider having a 'a bridge too far' distance advantage imo, but Silva v Bones should happen before Silva starts saying he's too old to go toe-to-toe with Bones!   ;)

From what I read, they usually put up a great match! Loved watching the semi-finals of the tournament, and heard they got booed at the event cause they weren't the type of fight the fans wanted....

I watched the prelims and gotta say was happy with them! Some good matches in there which kept me entertained :).

And I'm a Bisping fan :P. Glad he came away with the win, but could only read about it all!

Yeah, Jones said something popped and Vitor said he eased up once it happened, but allowed Jones to get out of it :-X. People say Gustaffason may have a chance as he is quite a big LHW to match Jones to a lesser extent but maybe only after the Rua match.

I watch the Fox and FX events, but can't watch these big ones as I don't bother going to a Pub alone :P.

Still some time away, but if Jones beats Henderson, there isn't much left at LHW that Jones hasn't conquered if you think about it :o. Hence, Gustaffason may find himself in a match with Jones end of next year.

Not sure if FX/Fuel events are also shown on OneHD, but next Fox event is early December, Henderson Vs Diaz which is looking to be an awesome card with the title fight headlining!

Event this coming weekend is UFC on Fuel TV 5 - Struve vs. Miocic. Struve and Miocic vying to move up the HW pecking order and a win for either could see them face tougher competition next time around. Hardy Vs Sadollah both will always come out banging so could put on a good show! Show is mainly of up and coming fighters, or those trying to move up slowly in their divisions. But should make for good fights as they have to perform to move onto bigger cards which is why I love watching these type of cards :D.

Still think that was cold by Hendo, Bisping was obviously already out :-X.

Remember I use to have one of Anderson ducking and dodging Griffin favourited before, was :o.
he he yeah i guess Bisping got his comeuppance, he is mouthing off less these days anyway, i dont mind him i guess :-X
He still mouths off, just against those who can't fight him (The Flyweights :P).

Dodson Vs Johnson for Flyweight belt should be a very fast paced match up! But may mean one of them will try to slow it down to control the pace.
awesome loved Dotson on TUF, will give him the edge tbh, he is as quick but hits harder ;)

Yep, dis-spells the myth that flyweights can't finish :P. Certainly has the hands to finish and Johnson has caused 2 upsets in a row to get the title, so will certainly put up a great fight!

I really hope they put this on a free card, would be great to watch! :D.

that's still pretty cold even if Bisping had been mouthing off prior to their fight.

i'm a bit of a Bisping fan I s'pose but he can shoot some shower from his mouth from time to time though i have seen him trash-talk before a fight but then respectful after (eg fight against Sonnen) so that's what makes me think he's doing it moreso for promotional reasons ...   :-\     ;)

or he isnt genuine ala most athletes/coaches with generic pre prepared statements, it has tailed off of late...

i definitely think thats the case with Anthoy Mundine, he even talks like an american when he talks smack which he isnt, but it sells tickets bcos everyone wants to see him get dropped or comeuppance

It certainly works for Bisping though, made him a big name which everybody wanted to see get knocked out. Although he has skills to back it up to an extent which is why I like him :P. And if he can get more big name fights via his mouth, certainly a great tool to have in his arsenal (e.g. Could be the next man to face Anderson Silva as a more well known name than Weidman/Boetsch).

Glad i stumbled across this before i said anything silly about CF (joke only joking buddy) are we able to see the 2nd fight anywhere that your Bro was talking about on his facebook page, he owned Sharp in that fight you posted the link to. Used to be a big UFC fan 3-4 years back but drifted away from it when we got rid of Foxtel, you guys have got me all pumped about it again, been cathing up on you tube tonight. I remember asking my jiu jitsu instructor if he wanted me to tape them for him and he said nuh not interested that stuff doesnt interest me, next session i bought in a tape and said just have a look at it and tell me what you think. Following week the 1st thing he said when Daryl and i walked in was how many more tapes have i got he loved them.
Im going back abit i think the 1st tape i gave him was of Randy Couture who was a bit of a favourite of mine.

Nice Grazz :D. Converting back to it, although some of the more well known fighters from the past have moved on. Nice way to get your instructor hooked, show him a tape of Couture ;D. I only got into MMA after he retired so I only have replays to watch...

Miller's downfall since getting released from the UFC has been quite tragic to watch. He can be serious when he wants to be, but haven't seen alot of it these days, hopefully is able to get his act together.

Randy was the favourite of most of the lads at Holdens where i worked so when we started watching he quickly became one of mine and Karen's as well. Don't recognise many names out there now. Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz were a couple of others Karen and i liked, saw a bit of Tank Abbott also. Friday nights on Foxtel back then i think it was. I'll follow this thread and attempt to catch up as best i can. CF's brother being involved is exciting for everyone that enjoys MMA UFC here. Wish him every success in what must be one of the most brutal learning curves anyone could experience in a chosen career.

UFC 153 came and went just like that (slept through it literally and forgot about it until like 4pm). Was able to catch the Prelims at night as have Fuel TV.
SPOILER ALERT as results are below.
















Some nice prelims fights, especially from past TUF people. Rony Jason put on a good fight with Sam Sicilia, was good to watch as haven't finished watching TUF Brazil (it is online). Gleison Tibau vs. Francisco Trinaldo I got into as liked Trinaldo from what I saw in the TUF Brazil, heavy hitter but didn't get the win. And Brandao (TUF winner for Featherweights) also showed he may have seen to his cardio problems, taking a decision over Gambino, after showing lack of it in his last fight. Was touted as a beast, so good to see him learning from his past flaws.

Main Card, not an awesome night for all the Brazillian Fighters :P. Maia and Nogueria got good wins over Story and Herman (who said BJJ is useless.... Submitted to armbar showed him ;D ). Fitch smashed Silva. I actually like Fitch, and he's back on track derailing Silva's hypetrain. Everybody thought Silva would smash through Fitch (as Hendrick's did), but Fitch used wrestling to nullify him, and I read that the 3rd round was brutal, something like 112-2 strikes landed by Fitch in that round alone :o. Glover Teixeira vs. Fabio Maldonado was more one sided, Doctor stoppage between rounds 2 and 3, Teixeira dominated him that badly, now wants Jackson again.

And Silva was Silva against Bonnar, first man to finish Bonnar I think. Knee to the solar plexus did it for Bonnar. But he did land some punches on Silva if any consolation :P. Now Silva is going after GSP again....

(I was just in a mood to write tonight, I don't know why.)

Post by: RiOtChEsS on October 16, 2012, 12:09:56 PM
 ;D nice wrap up HP 8) actually thought Herman could have beaten Nog if he kept his range and stuffed the takedowns, lost $10 :'(

Recompensed my losses on a Maia Fitch Multi bet tho :D bit sad really that Bonnar Vs Silva is the best they could muster...

Glover Texeira is a deadset threat for a title, that dude can straight monster ppl 8)

Post by: Justin Bieber on October 16, 2012, 04:30:58 PM
Unlucky you lost on Herman, but Fitch was an underdog over Silva so nice way to make some money back with him in a multi with Maia 8).

Considering Koch and then Aldo both got injured, at least it was something so that the event could go through, Big Nog even said he wanted to fight on it to help get another Big Brazillian name on the card to make up for it. From what I've read around, was better than what most were expecting from the fights on the card.

i s'pose I thought that about Anderson Silva when he fought Chael the first time ... I remember saying to someone at the pub when we were watching, "This is a pretty big surprise, Silva hasn't really been 'touched' in 5yrs or more ..." as Sonnen was pummeling him from top position and then next round ... Silva 'snatches victory from the jaws of defeat' cos Sonnen for some unknown reason (with pretty much 4 rounds in his pocket), still wants to keep beating up on Silva and gets sloppy ... nice triangle choke and still pretty cool ...  8)     ;)

yeah it would be nice if someone could get a surprise victory over Jones and open up that div again, nobody is pushing the pace on him, they all respect his power, range etc too much, if ur going to be struck by him anyway u may aswell do it on ur own terms, come a little unorthodox and immediately with a ton of pressure, try and throw him off his game, ino nobody can fight at that pace for a long time but atleast the first minute of the fight and get him in a situation foreign to him and then u might be able to control the fight to an extent

do you guys know what the go is for this UFC in Macau??

i think I saw it's a Fuel TV thing - i don't know what's happened with OneHD but seems like UFC is off the menu on it these days??

I know the headliner is Rich Franklin vs Cung Le (assuming it's a catchweight 195lb or is Rich cutting to middleweight??)

Don't know if it is bogus but the pub I was intending to go and watch UFC 154 at is apparently hosting Tito Ortiz for some promotional thing - would be good to see him but I'm not sure about a $10 cover charge because of that ...  :-\   ;)

but then I found this ... http://www.everythingmma.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Tito-Ortiz-AUST-Tour-Poster1-723x1024.jpg so now i'm confused ... poster says private booth, pub website says $10 cover charge but not what for, especially if he's going to be in a private booth ...

Thought it was in the morning like normal, so missed the first 3 matches on the prelims (Especially the Lineker match which was one of the ones I actually wanted to watch on this card). Sadly missed the Main Event as fell asleep at 2am as was tired out from going out 3 days in a row (including for 2 exams then clothes shopping for 6 hours). Read up on it and didn't think much was missed besides that Knockout by Le :o. Le certainly went for more power with the way he was standing and attacking, different to usual.

And apparently January 12th is the last Strikeforce event before they are absorbed fully by the UFC :o. Means Cormier, Melendez, Rockhold, Rousey (Female divisions coming as guessing Dana wants to cash in on her) and others could make for some nice matches :D.

For anyone living in Launceston (why would you live there? :P) my bro is having a fight on December 8 there. So should go check it out...
"why would you live there?" - way harsh CF!  :o    ;)

Is this on One HD anymore? Havent seen a fight for ages! :(
here's the answer from earlier in the thread Toges ...

UFC signed a new deal with a different channel (FX - Channel 123) on Foxtel so its no longer on OneHD or Fuel

Ha, ha! no CF, don't live in Launny ...  ;)

UFC 154 was solid if not spectacular - thought we were in for an 'epic' when Condit got a high head kick to glance GSP's temple and get him to the ground in the 2nd ... definite unanimous decision but with 49-46, 50-45 & 50-45 there is a definite 'wrestling bias' in judges scorecards for MMA and it needs to be 're-balanced' back the other way a bit, in my opinion - maybe i want to see a bit more stand-up but to me, getting a take-down is hard work but should it be 'worth' more than hitting a guy to the ground??

just seems that judges go with take-downs, or maybe it is take-down plus top-control - but i don't see that staying on top equates with control when the other guy is so active from the bottom and looking to recover or going for submissions??

decent card too - HP, you have to see Hendricks knocking out Kampmann in the 1st round!  :o
Almost a carbon copy of what he did to Jon Fitch in his last fight!  :o   ;)

Dos Anjos was impressive over Hominick and should be on his way towards a title fight after a couple more, if he keeps it up ...

next card, UFC on Fox 5 - Dec 9 our time looks really good ...

Henderson v Diaz for lightweight title
Shogun v Gustafsson LHW
BJ Penn v MacDonald WW
Swick v Brown WW

ps. i don't know why i put those weight designations there and then noticed I missed the last two ...  :P

looking forward to the next one, schoolies week down here so i didnt go to the pub for 154...

got an underdog multibet on Penn over MacDonald and Shogun over Gustaffson paying $8.18 to 1...

Interested to see how Nate goes against BenHen, been a fan since TUF, if he can keep his range he will win, even if he cant he has a mad ground game and could pull out a submission so could be a fast paced fight
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on November 20, 2012, 11:42:38 AM
I saw it as was reading the PBPs on Sherdog and also watched the post-show on Fuel. Was similar to Fitch being KOed in the way Kampmann fell which was :o. I wanted Kampmann to win, but got to give the #1 contender to Hendricks after his last couple of wins (Pierce, Fitch, Kos and now Kampmann, 3 of them having a wrestling background). Could pose problems to GSP but even then, he showed against Condit, hard to deny his take downs.

Dos Anjos became the 5th person to be Bocek (Danzig and then 3 of the top of the division are the only other ones to beat him) so certainly on his way up the ladder if he continues! Cote Vs Alessio also looked like it was going to be awesome! Cote got the win by DQ because of SOOOOOOO many strikes to the back of the head to KO him. He was rocked by a normal shot, but there were like 5-10 shots to the back of the head in total, all went without a warning.... Hopefully get the rematch here :D.

The Fox card certainly looks like one of the most stacked cards that are free to watch. Hopefully you guys without pay tv can watch it, certainly is set up to possibly have a few great matches! I'm a fan of Brown, certainly put together a few wins. Want Penn to win but going for Gustaf against Shogun :P.

Awesome stuff by Rob! Certainly putting together a string of dominant wins from the sounds of things 8).

Was meant to say this two days ago, but personal stuff came up but UFC on Fox is on today! Chiesa and the Johnson Vs Schaub match were cancelled but still quite a damn decent card for free (Well Pat TV provideres or those going down to the pub :P ).

Tim Means slipped in Sauna so replaced in his match by Marcus LeVesseur, was looking forward to seeing Means again after he destroyed Salas in his last match. Quite alot of former TUF fighters on the undercard, certainly a few of those fights should be entertaining, such as Siver Vs Phan and Jorgenson Vs Albert (really want to watch this one). Top 3 fights with big names! Henderson Vs Diaz with belt on line, Rua Vs Gustaffson and Penn Vs MacDonald. Swick Vs Brown also has the potential to be good. Swick over his injuries and Brown on a roll. But all 4 certainly are great fights to have on a free card :D.

Also, first Women's match in UFC history has been made, set for UFC 157 :o. http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/Ronda-Rousey-to-Defend-Bantamweight-Belt-Against-Liz-Carmouche-in-UFC-157-Headliner-48001

Good win to your 'lil' brother CF!
(though I haven't seen the replay yet ... )

UFC on Fox 5 recap:

Venue issues
I don't have FoxSports so had to head to the pub (yeah, I know - oh the effort i had to go to get myself to the pub!  ;)) ... but with the 3hr time difference, it's an 'early-bird' 9am start over here in the west and the dang pub didn't open til 9.40am or so even though their website advertised it for 9am!!!  :o   >:( 

so I missed most of Swick vs Brown apart from 'watching' it through the glass fn the doors to the pub!

Penn vs MacDonald
thankfully we got let in, in time enough for BJ Penn vs Rory MacDonald (pub just got the sound on a couple of minutes before the fight - a few technical issues that morning but they finally sorted their shower out) - I don't think it is just me - but is this kid  freaking huge now??

agree with the commentators, BJ should not be in the welter-weight div any longer, but the problem for him is that the light-weight division is too fast and well-conditioned for him too. sad to say, but i think it is time for him to retire - could squeeze one more fight out of him against Takanori Gomi though??!?

Suffice to say BJ got dominated by one of the kids who probably looked up to him in his prime ... wasn't the best test for MacDonald in the end so be interesting who they match him up with next?? (have seen some commentators bandy about Dong Hyunh KIM)

Shogun vs Gustafsson
Another changing of the guard with the Swede controlling pretty much the whole fight and Rua looked really worn down from all the punishment he's been taking in the cage of late.

He just didn't have anything to get through the Swede's reach and size advantage, much like his fight against Jones, without the finish however, which makes me think that Gustafsson would get smashed by Jones even though he is now next in line to fight for the title - I think a better bet would be to match him up against the Henderson vs Machida loser before putting him in front of Jones (if he gets thru Sonnen, but that's an unlikely upset in the same vein as Silva vs Bonnar!).

Henderson vs Diaz
Another domination fight with Henderson in his prime it would seem - I can't see anyone touching him at this stage, but it would be awesome to see Henderson vs Melendez to 'unify' UFC and Strikeforce titles!!!!!!  :o   ;)

Can't wait for Dos Santos vs Velasquez II to round out the year!!!  ;D

I had a friend's B'day party to go to but recorded it and THANK GOODNESS I DID. Those Prelim fights were AWESOME :D :D :D.

BJ and Shogun sadly were outmatched by the younger guys, probably a passing of the guard as most were saying. BJ just got smashed to be honest. I heard about a match up with Stungun as well for MacDonald's future. Gustaff got the next shot at Jones, surpised Machida and Henderson are pushed future back to be honest, gotta feel for them especially Hendo. Think I saw it more of what you guys said last time about Gustaff, He has the size, but his reach isn't as long nor does he use his size to his advantage properly.

Henderson just owned Diaz... And most were picking Diaz but great to see Henderson defend the belt a few times so it doesn't keep bouncing around very often, and we don't need more rematches :P.

I love watching Matt Brown in action, and nice to see him continue his streak with a win against Swick. Hopefully calls for a step up in competition.

Prelims I gotta say were great! Siver dominated Phan, like DOMINATED completely... Abel Trujillo could be one to watch for the future, dominated LeVesseur (given he was called upon short notice) and the way it ended with Knees to the Body was just brutal... Edwards KOing Stephens was nice, but I believe Cruickshank was robbed for KO of the night. That Head kick was just sweet, and loved watching him on the Ultimate Fighter due to his background, loves his kicks :P. Jorgenson Vs Albert was always going to be a great fight (one of the ones I wanted to watch), was dissapointed that it wasn't going to be shown on the scheduled Prelims for Fox but happy it got time in the end :D. Although really wanted Albert to win (great to see him fight as always entertains), Jorgenson got the win as Albert tapped to the rear naked choke at the bell for Round 1... So unlucky! 3 losses in a row, hopefully they keep him around for 1 more match to fight his way back, as there is hope as he is an entertaining fighter.

Yeah you would think so, especially since he has had a fight in the US as well. He's had 2 fights with Brace, and 1 with Valor so you would think he would get a chance in the CFC soon. I think he may have been asked once since his coach is one of their best fighters, but he wasn't available at the time...

He was also annoyed that he couldn't try out for the Smashes. He hadn't had enough fights at the time and also it's not his weight class. I haven't seen any of this series marcz, what's the quality like? Could my brother have done alright in it?

deadset could have taken it out, that fight he just had vs the first he had shows an amazing progression, his stance has advanced, he looks really comfortable, and he was constantly setting that last opponent up to fail, whereas the other fights he was reacting to their mistakes rather than forcing them into them... that fight was really really impressive 8)

Yeah certainly has improved. He was telling me after his first fight that he had a slight moment of doubt to start pounding the guy once he had got on top of him since it was his first fight and he hadn't done it before. But certainly loves doing it now! Loves his elbows too when he is in mount.

I abused him after his first fight for not going for the arm bar when the guy just kept leaving his arm up in the air, and he said that thought popped in to his head during this one so that's why he did it. Looks like I'm now the coach haha :D

Yeah hopefully they get another season going with aussie fighters in it at a different weight class. Although I'm not sure if he is planning on going back to the US or not. Think he might be at some stage, since that's really where the fight scene is at...

NICE Marcz :o :o :o. Would be extremely happy with that at 20/1 odds!! Think Junior talking about Overeem so much, he looked past Cain :-X.

Was only able to watch prelims of course and didn't disappoint. Garcia Vs Holloway was a nice standing war. Garcia certainly put up a fight seeing as he may get cut, but he always entertains. Not a bad way to close out the year.

wonder if they'll do middleweights??

UFC 155 - not bad. Marcz, cleaned up! I thought Cain would win but I could understand why Junior was favourite.
Cain really was 'rusty' in their first fight, he fixed up all the mistakes ... can't wait for Velasquez v Dos Santos 3 when that happens - not right now, but they're both in their primes so highly likely to face off again!  ;D

be interesting to see whether Junior fixes up his mistakes from this last one ...

Both should be great matches! Cormier calling out Mir after their match had to be scrapped is a decent tune up match for him in the UFC. Although said he wouldn't fight Cain so he may move down to LHW for Jones if he can cut it down safely.

Never seen Melendez in action, but rated so highly and a straight title shot straight in from Strikeforce says quite alot!

Another MASSIVE fight named is: Mousasi Vs Gustafsson :o. Could easily make Gus lose his top spot at LHW and push Mousasi right up there straight away. Tough match for Gus as Mousasi is even if most fans don't know about him :-X. Most Casual fans won't know about the strikeforce guys (Rockhold and Jacare another two who may get pretty good matchups in MW) so will be interesting what the UFC does with them.

Past weekend was Bisping Vs Belfort which I was able to watch :D.

Sadly not too much to take out of the event. Belfort Blitzed Bisping in the 2nd after a sweet head kick :o. Now means Anderson can take a longer lay off with no challenger for him at the moment. Got to say Dolloway put on a solid performance against Sarafian, a welcome change from his usual matches (Won fight of the night for it). Pepey Vs Viera was also a good match! As a FX card, not too many big names, but Lentz and Nurmagomedov are the guys to keep an eye on down the track. Barboza came back strong after his first loss in UFC.

Fox Card coming up this week with Dodson Vs Johnson! Looks to be an AWESOME card :D.
http://www.sherdog.com/events/UFC-on-Fox-6-Johnson-vs-Dodson-26199

Top 3 matches have big names (As I like flyweights :P ) and should be great. Koch Vs Lamas would be a matchup highup in the potential matchups for Aldo with Koch injured before this title fight and Lamas upsetting Hioki pushing him up the order. Grant and Wiman both underrated and great fighters so should be a nice match there :D. Not to mention Guida's move down to FW to face Hioki and Bader back in action against Matyushenko.

Would be HUGE fights if all can remain unbeaten in that period to make the fights mean that much more but alot of things could change.

Not sure if I mentioned this before, but can't wait for next Sweden Card. Gustaffson getting back in there against Mousasi who's being tossed straight near the top in his first UFC match! Rated highly and alot can see him competing up there but thought he could use a tune up match or two before challenging Gustaff who's near the top of the division. Tough test for him with Mousasi even though many may not know about him :-X.

Cain Velasquez, Antonio Silva set tilt

A UFC heavyweight title fight featuring champion Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva has been booked for a Memorial Day weekend event in Las Vegas.

The bout will headline UFC 160, which takes place on May 25 at the MGM Garden Arena. Another heavyweight pairing between former champion Junior dos Santos and Alistair Overeem will serve as the co-main event.

Velasquez smashed him first match and after 2 wins gets another shot :o. Given against Browne (up and comer HW) and Overeem so seems alright with no proper contenders at the moment. If Werdrum wasn't booked, he would have probably got the shot :P. Now if he can get over Nog, should be next in line for a shot after TUF Brazil.

JDS Vs Overeem is one many wanted to watch and finally get it!

Fuel card coming up on the weekend, with Barao Vs McDonald for the title in Bantamweight :D. Got a few more good matches of up and comers. Pretty sure the Prelims are shown on Facebook 8). Think early in morning though.

sorry, been off FF for a bit so missing the UFC banter with the 'crew' ...  ;)

UFC 157: Rousey v Carmouche from Anaheim, California (Disneyland hood) - Sun, 24 Feb 2013 Australia time ...

Great card in the end imo, crowd at the pub a bit down (missing about a 1/3 from the usual) and i'm hopeful that that was just cos we had the annual Cottesloe to Rottnest channel swim yesterday so some people sore and/or hungover after that yesterday ... rather than (i hope not) cos female title fight was the headline (short-sighted if it is) ...

Anyway, historic occasion - first female UFC title fight ever ... 2yrs ago CEO Dana White saying he'd never have females fighting in the UFC and now this!!!

and no disappointment!!!

Saw McGee take the unanimous decision over Josh Neer but lucky with a takedown in Rd3 cos I thought he lost round 2 ...

Urijah Faber vs. Ivan Menjivar - fairly tight contest until Faber gets onto Menjivar's back while he's standing - pretty cool rear naked by Faber while Menjivar standing ...  :)  - Faber arching Menjivar's back to get some leverage and he taps at 4:34 into rd1!

Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida - tough one to score but pretty sure Machida had the split decision so agree with the judges - Machida is like the 'enigma' - thought his game was to let Hendo tire into rd3 - couple of overhand right bombs form Hendo just missing the mark could've ended it though ... tight but not that contraversial in my opinion ... Machida not likley to get a title fight from this though imo ...  ;)
(at least he looked in better shape than when he lost the title to Shogun in their re-match - pretty sure he was injured for that)

Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche - history in the making!!

Rousey pushed the pace early and had the strength advantage ... then Carmouche takes Rousey's back while standing, eerily similar to Faber over Menjivar earlier in the card ... but Ronda rides it out and gets it to the ground and goes to work getting to her 'signature' (7 out of 8 pro-finishes by armbar!) move and Carmouche quickly taps so her arm doesn't get snapped!

Carmouche could have had it as well so great fight!!!  ;)

Honourable under-card mention:
Brock Jardine vs. Kenny Robertson - for unusual leg-lock/kneebar by Robertson - unorthodox but lethal nonetheless!  :o

Wasn't goin to go but went to see UFC on Fuel 8 (or UFC Japan) wk before last and boy was I glad I went!  ;D   8)

Wanderlei Silva v Brian Stann - main event at LHW
Fireworks between Wanderlei and Stann!!!  :o
Whoo! Wanderlei always brings it and Stann doesn't mind a war on the feet - both could've had it but Wanderlei comes out with some veteran moves reminding me of his Pride fighting days!
Fighting at LHW Stann doesn't drop down the middleweight standings which is good i reckon cos he could've had this one too.

Struve v Hunt - I don't know what is wrong with his coaching team but it is just bizarre to me why Struve seems to have no idea how to use his length and reach - basically just went into the trap of going toe-to-toe with a guy with heavy hands and got knocked out!  ::)   :D   8) 

Just made no sense why Stuve was doing well with the jab but went away from that and he even had the advantage on the ground but didn't want to take it there??  ???

At least Hunt is a Kiwi but training in Oz so we claim him!  ;)

Sanchez v Gomi - fairly uneventful but i reckon Gomi got screwed with the split decision against, Sanchez did almost nothing apart from getting Gomi to ground a couple of times but did nothing once there ... I reckon one last 'exhibition match' Gomi vs BJ Penn should be a goer imo!  ;)

Okami v Lombard - someone I was watching this fight with told me that Lombard got picked up by the UFC for a 6-figure contract but I couldn't really see the value of that contract - Lombard does look like he's got heavy hands but seemed to be a bit of a 'one-trick pony' with no plan B ...

and coming up ...

With Overeem getting reamed Mark Hunt steps up to take on JDS at 160 and boy'o'boy will that be a slug fest :o i remember Hunt's K1 victories in the past and ive seen a few of his UFC fights, based out of Sydney normally this guy swings for the fences and has a decent chin, last fight he KO'd Struve, 5'10 Vs 7ft ???

The difference between GSP and ALL OTHER FIGHTERS is that he sticks to his game plan and doesnt get emotional.  The fight against Koscheck is a perfect example.  His game plan was to stand and jab him all night long.  He did that for 5 rounds and won comfortably

Diaz gets way too emotional in his fights and this will be his downfall against GSP

dominated.

i probably hyped this fight up too much (have been waiting eagerly since early this year for this fight, if not the last 4yrs!  :o   ;)) so was probably always going to be hard to live up to my expectations.

GSP vs Diaz
I thought Diaz would bring more to this fight but the 'ring-rust' was obvious imo - Diaz really needed a fight or two before facing GSP.

GSP dominated the first 2rds easy - Diaz had close to no offence whatsoever and being a Cesar Gracie stable fighter, i reckon he had nothing from the bottom such was the dominance and suffocation of GSP.

Rd3 Diaz finally brought something and started landing shots on GSP's head after taking his own punishment from GSP in that manner the first 2 rds - people booed at the pub i was watching when GSP took Diaz to ground - and I see a lot of criticism from the 'couches' of GSP's supposed 'lay and pray' strategy but he gets people down, controls them and is active from the top so I reckon the calls are short-sighted. (i do still think there's sometimes a little bias towards the wrestling when some fighters get people to ground, get no shots in, don't control the opponent who gets up straight away)

judges were generous to Diaz with 50-45 scorecards in my opinion.   ;)

Hendricks vs Condit
no contraversy here, Hendricks won this easy 2rds to 1rd but if this was a 5-rounder, I reckon Condit would've won - I think Hendricks used up 80% of his tank in the first rd and half - Condit was starting to lay-in in the 3rd round but Hendricks had the wrestling to keep the fight his. Hendricks again could've taken it out many times if he connected on one of his 'bombs' and this is the weapon he will take into a fight against GSP but ...

Hendricks rightly deserves the title shot, and he'll have a 'puncher's chance' against GSP cos of his power, but I hope he trains his tank for 5 tough rounds with the champion or it's gonna fizz ...  ;)

Ellenberger vs Marquardt
Ellenberger KO of the night - nuff said.  ;)

Nick Ring vs Chris Camozzi
didn't light things up - Camozzi raising his arms up at the end of the 2nd rd? he was doing well and took it in the end but why wouldn't you press your advantage while you're fighting ... unless you're tiring??   ;)

Struve has fought for a while and rarely takes advantage of his reach advantage. He's got the same armspan of Jon Jones I believe but just doesn't know how to use it ::).

On yesterday's event, GSP did what he does best and that's win :P. Hendricks FINALLY getting his shot at the title, probably should have got it after the Kampmann win but another big name on record isn't going to hurt him :o.

Dylan was all heart - he needs to knuckle down and work on his technique.  You cant train heart and he has that in truckloads.

Loved how Kelvin got the rear-naked choke on Josh so quickly in the semi.  Josh was so full of himself.  I hope Kelvin gets a push cos I think he can do well.  Also keep in mind the kid is only 21.

yeah first time i seen a full TUF season as i am just starting this year to get more into the MMA/UFC scene
i thoroughly enjoyed TUF and my favs were kelvin and dylan
josh was  a arrogant dick
and hall was pretty cocky in the finale when in the 1st round he leant back on the cage with his hands low inviting kelvin in like his anderson silva or something

i taped them too so haven't seen all the main card besides some of bubba's fight and kelvin vs hall

saw some of the prelims too got them taped but i saw hester and dylan and barnett...so stilll need to watch josh vs casey though i know the result and read that casey gassed after 1 round again

TUF finale on today, prelims on Fuel, then switch over to FX for main event 8)
I was forced to miss it as was overseas :(. Also missed the FX or Fuel card that was in Europe. Was gutted that I was missing Mousasi Vs Gustaffson, but eased the pain a bit when Gus pulled out :-X.

The Ultimate Fighter Finale was one of the best fights I've seen from the TUF series!!
*SPOILER ALERT*

I am glad Kelvin won the contract.  I really enjoyed watching him be the underdog throughout the whole season and no-one giving him credit at all.  Dana was so obsessed with Uriah and being talked up as a contender immediately..... does this mean tht Kelvin immediately becomes a contender?
The hype behind Hall was unbelievable, but like Marcz, really enjoyed watching Dylan and Kelvin able to battle the odds and do so well! Great season of fights which drew me in alot better than last season of the American TUF.

man, missed this one ... my brother was pretty 'selfish' and had his wedding this w/end ...  ;)

thoughts on Henderson vs Melendez this coming w/end??

That was yesterday and if anybody can watch the replay of the Prelims/Main Card I advise you do so!

SPOILERS:





Wow, that card was GREAT from start to finish of what I saw. Prelims even showed the FB ones, and had to watch replay for Main Card. Was really looking forward to this card due to some of the Prelims and main card fights.

Yoel Romero Palacio Vs Starks had a great finish as did quite alot of the matches on the card, tied UFC record for most finishes. Dillashaw, Benavidez and Mendes all coming from the same gym and finished heir opponents well. Dillashaw have been following since TUF, and looks like he's ready for the step up in competition, pretty technical. Benavidez's finish was a brutal body punch :o. Mendes stopped Elkins who I thought would have lasted longer, but Mendes has shown why he is one of the best featherweights in the world :-X. People asking for Mendes to Face the winner of Korean Zombie and Lamas, but if Lamas wins that fight he better get the title shot after taking out the 2 people who were set to take on Aldo for the title (Hioki turned it down and Koch couldn't fight Aldo due to an injury). Should have got it before Pettis -_-. Myles Jury another one from TUF, taken out two finalists in a row in Michael Johnson and Ramsey Nijem, but has dominated them when doing it :o.

For the main card, the Strikeforce guys certainly showed they can keep up with UFC. Although, Brown outclassed Mein and has found himself on quite a roll lately, won 5 straight. Although, against mid-level talent. Certainly shown improvement in his style and not rushing into things as hastly as he use to. Won fight of the night with Mein and I watched it and even though I knew the result (as watched replay of Main Card), there was some great action in there!! Thompson first person to knock out Nate Diaz :o :o. Certainly wasn't expected that, but those head kicks thrown landed hard :-X. For Cormier Vs Mir, was interested in that seeing Cormier. Despite being quite small for HW, controlled Mir quite easily. Mainly just out-clinched with him and out-boxed him, staying away from Mir's ground game. But if Velasquez remains at top of HW, Cormier has said he'll probably move down, which won't hurt him due to his size already.

Henderson Vs Melendez was pretty good! Haven't seen Melendez fight before, but from what I've read, he's one of the best lightweights in the world. Certainly gave Henderson all he can handle, losing the split decision. Certainly not going to hurt his chances in the UFC with that performance, and a great way for exposure on FOX for him. Henderson wins another close decision, but he won it and remains on top. Now he's set to face the Gray Maynard Vs TJ Grant winner. Grant has won a 4 or 5 in a row now while Maynard last beat Guida after losing to Edgar for the title. Was looking forward to that match anyway, but now has title implications :o.

So in short, if you haven't watched UFC Fox 7, I suggest you try and find a replay of it :P.

Thanks for the debrief HP - good to have you back!  ;)

I was a bit late getting to the casino (don't have foxtel  :P) so I came in towards the end of Mir vs Cormier  :(   ;)

can't believed I missed the Diaz knock-out, I'm a bit of a fan but never say no to seeing a finish of any sort for top-level fighters!  ;)

Henderson vs Melendez - was close but not that close that I understood the split decision - I can't see how one judge went 48-47 in Melendez's favour??!  ???

Close but fight-metrics alone had significant strikes way in Henderson's favour not to mention the power of his leg kicks, even sweeping Melendez to the ground one or two times ... definitely a re-match in order I would've thought but Melendez caught a lot of Henderson's kicks but just like Edgar vs Henderson I where Frankie did the same, Melendez also did nothing once he caught Hendo's leg ... :-X I know it's hard but if you can't do anything with it, why bother continuing to catch it??  ??? (reflex I s'pose?)  ;)

Ok, on the next ...


Jones vs Sonnen this Sunday!!!  ;D

Interested in Souza's and Rockhold's debut! Rocky getting Belfort and Souza getting Phillipou. Think Souza has improved his standup over past year or two, so will be tested well in that department if he chooses to stand :-X. Rocky being thrown to the dogs in his first fight, but can certainly see him at the top end of the middleweight division so should be interesting card.

And I don't mind Nate, he certainly isn't as bad as his brother!

Think some people had Melendez winning the first 3 rounds, but the fight stats have it in Henderson's favour. Was suprised how early on Melendez was able to grab Hendo's kicks and push him back. Think they catch it to try and tip the other guy off balance and get a take down if they are able to get them to the ground. Think it was the Carmont Vs Larkin fight, Carmont grabbed a leg and lifted it high but Larkin just wouldn't fall over :o. That showed quite alot of balance as in that instance, he remained standing, hopping to avoid being pushed off balance to the ground.

And thanks J, nice to be back on the forum more regularly 8).

yeah Souza just needs enough stand up to not get dominated, then he can mix take downs, cos nobody in the ufc would be game to get on the ground with him (except probs werdum)
Would never count out vitor against rocky, those old pride war horses are nuts.
yeah getting over lighter weight bouts but, just to flowerin even. unless McGregor can keep it up at ufc level. also rustam khabilov is always good to watch.
Also think this is the spiders last fight as a title holder..... boom I said it
mir wasn't a test for Cormier. Barnett and big foot are 25 times better

And Mir earned the same as Henderson for that event :o. This is when you include Hendo's 100k win bonus.... At least he's making more than the last few matches (Hendo) ::).

Belfort spoils all the fun, I was hoping Bisping would win that fight a while back :P.

On UFC 159, I saw Rustam's first match in the UFC when it happened. Anybody who hasn't, should take a look at how he handled Vinc Pichel... Those suplexes were just devastating! Hoping Davis can shut Vinny up, Vinny trash-talked Davis a while on twitter to get the matchup, and a win for him can boost him up the UFC rankings quite a bit at LHW.

Some solid fights on this card though but not as good as the Fox card that just passed :P.

I've heard a bit about Bec Hyatt, but think she fights at 115lbs (may be wrong), with UFC only having the 135lbs division at the moment :-X. I'm enjoying it as well, and they are putting like one match on each card on the prelims which is nice to introduce the women :D.

160 certainly is stacked and I want to watch it as most events I've passed up as don't go to a bar or anything.

On a side note, next TUF is set to be Canada Vs Australia. Not sure how they came up with that, but will be interesting who the Coaches are. Some people mentioning Lombard/Ebersole/Noke Vs MacDonald/Cote/Stout, but all speculation.

Yeah 115lb is straw weight, I said they "should" bring it in. they are about to do it for the guys. Bec is 24 I think, and only fairly new, so by the time they bring in straw chicks, she should be ready. They will probs bring cyborgs weight class in next but

Ah... So she has some time! Not sure if they'll bring in another women's weightclass anytime soon, need to get more fans into just watching women fight. An upside so far is that they are so far on a 100% finishing record :P.

Dana has said Nelson's next match will likely either be Hunt or Cormier :o :o :o. If Hunt can beat JDS, you would imagine they will set him up with Velasquez. Although if Werdum wins against Big Nog, he has been in line for a little while :P. So could see Hunt Vs Nelson which would be :o. Big hitters, great chins, although Nelson's ground game :-X.

I get a boner just thinking about it, and if anyone on this earth can knock out nelson...
 
I do like werdum, think he has talent, not enough to dominate/hold a belt but. Soa Paleli finally got another UFC shot, you can probs thank hunts success for that.

I seriously think NRL players need to consider training in MMA during their career, start doing some amateur matches on the off season. wait till retire at 30ish, potential 7-10 year MMA career. Would be much more suited than boxing if you think of the tackling and ability to fend off opponents trying to take down. I just want more aussies in the sport  :P

Anyway he is a video demonstrating some of his athleticism. It's fairly impressive! http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=452388858188096 (http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=452388858188096)

UFC 160 review

and Aussie Rob Whittaker who won TUF: The Smashes last year, won his fight by TKO in the 3rd round - I only saw the replay.
Kiwi 'adopted Aussies' James Te-Huna and Mark Hunt unfortunately lost their bouts ...

TJ Grant vs Gray Maynard
He didn't look like he was doing that much but with impressive combos, Grant took Maynard down w/in the first round!  :o

Glover Teixeria vs James Te-Huna
Te-Huna looked good in the exchanges on the feet and his take-down defense was going ok - on the feet he seemed to have a speed and power advantage but at Teixeria's 3rd or 4th take-down attempt I think James got a bit complacent and he evetually lost balance and went down.

Teixeria was superior on the ground, James was no slouch but Teixeria just had a better ground game and from top position pulled guard when he saw the gullotine opportunity - Te-Huna tapped out about 2.5mins into the 1st round.

Junior Dos Santos vs Mark Hunt
i wasn't sure that Mark Hunt had anything more than 'a puncher's chance' in this because of his knock-out power but i have to say i was highly impressed with his tactics and patience against the former heavyweight champ.

Hunt watched from outside and tried to close the distance to use his power, the only issue was Dos Santos' counter right and right hooks! Hunt got one or two punches on Dos Santos and had him bleeding at the start of the 2nd round but before that Dos Santos clipped Hunt good in the first round just like he did to Cain Velasquez in their first encounter and Hunt went down but quickly got up and recovered to end the first round on the feet.

2nd round was more exchanges with Hunt trying to close the distance but not being quite fast enough with the speed differential definitely in Junior's favour and he kept getting Hunt on the counter. Hunt got only one or two more in I think and then I saw him starting to blow hard ... I thought he was gone but he had conserved energy fairly well and lasted into the 3rd round where I thought he would gas quickly.

But Hunt was ok until about 3mins into the 3rd round where I think the hits he had taken earlier as well as continuing counters from Dos Santos took their toll and Hunt was taken out by a spinning back kick that seemed to come out of no-where!  ;)

Another title shot for the former champ and for Hunt, I don't think he would drop down in rankings from this fight as he was impressive apart from deficiencies in conditioning and not having the speed to close the distance he needs. I think he should get some tips from Wanderlei Silva to fix that bit so he can be the 'controlled brawler' that i think would suit his strengths.

UFC heavyweight title fight - Velasquez vs Silva2
i have to admit I wasn't all that keen on seeing this as Cain fairly easily beat Silva in their first encounter but after seeing Silva put down Overeem earlier this year I thought it could be interesting but it wasn't to be ... a few exchanges and a couple of take-down attempts by the champ stopped but then Velasquez cracks Silva's chin with a crisp right and the big man goes down and Velasquez swarms over the top.

Think Silva didn't like the referree stoppage at first but I don't think he was defending enough to complain all that much.


Cannot wait to see Velasquez vs Dos Santos III!!!   :o   ;)

I heard that as well Daz, luckily it doesn't look as bad as Jones' one :o :o. Still, hindered movement, but JDS was still ontop of him :-X.

Great round up J 8).  Read today when I was on the bus that Bendo didn't know who Grant was :o. Grant does look quite the beast since his move down, didn't beat too many high names (although I rate Wiman), the Maynard win certainly put him on the map :P.

Texeira hyped as the next big thing at Light Heavyweight so hopefully gets a big name opponent next up! Possibly Shogun if he wins, Shogun didn't take the fight with Tex when he first came in cause he wasn't a big enough name which is understandable. So he seems to have moved himself up the ranks in that time!

Also to note, Aussie TUF winner Robert Whittaker beat the American TUF 16 winner Colton Smith by TKO 8). Nice way to show why our season was better than the American one that time :P.

And if you haven't heard already, Cat Zigano is out of the match with Rousey due to injury. To replace her is Meisha Tate as Coach on TUF and also for the title shot :o.

i've been following Soa 'the Hulk' Palelei on FB for some time because he's been based in Perth for quite a while now and he's always on the social media.   ;)
You wouldn't be liked that he was kicked from his fight with Stipe Miocic for Stipe to face Roy Nelson at UFC 161. Bad luck for him as he had already been training for that fight ::).

What happens when the top match (Barao Vs Wineland) gets scratched and they want another well-known name on the card :(.

yeah, it's bad luck but he won't care - he had a shot at UFC early on in his career and he admits he wasted the opportunity so he's been working hard ever since and earned a recall ...  :)

I think the match-up was pretty good in that Miocic is on the periphery of top10 ... now Soa keeps training hard and just waits for the call from Joe Silva/Dana White as to who they get him to fight ...  ;)

glad you and Daz liked my UFC 160 review ...  ;)

Meisha Tate - she's in some of the TapouT XT training vids my ex got me, but i've heard conspiracy theories that Dana/UFC pushed Cat Zigano to the side for something to do with ratings - however, there haven't been any complaints from Cat or her camp so probably just rumours ...  ;)

next season of US TUF still gonna be interesting!  8)   ;)

Stipe lost to Struve last time who Nelson has beaten before. Why some are asking if Nelson is just getting fed lesser HWs now :P.

When they lined up Tate Vs Zigano as #1 contender match and winner Coaching on TUF, alot wanted Tate for the rematch as she already has a rivalry with Rousey. Can see a conspiracy in the works to get Tate in :P.

The MMA pages on fb wernt that high on Grant at all until now, crazy really, he is the second guy that has impressed me from the first time i seen them and before they had won that fight, the striking "sounds" different and they both r incredibly efficient...

The other was Cain Velasquez in his fight with Big NOG, the strikes "sound" different and they r very accurate

i see hunt broke his toe halfway through the 1st round affecting his movement
whoa, i didn't know that - wonder if that affected his ability to close the distance??!
but for toe, Hunt having a possible title shot??! :o      ;)

how's he goin CF?
The light heavy fight he was trying to organise ended up a no go. The guy he challenged declined, even though the other guy made the first challenge. Makes no sense! ::)

Anyway he may have a fight lined up in Melbourne now in 4 weeks time. I'll keep you informed if it eventuates :)
obviously the opponent saw clips of your brother's previous fights after issuing an initial challenge and then chickened out?  ;)

i don't get many facetube feeds from his FB page - you should fix that up for him.   ;)
Finding it very difficult to find a fight as the Melbourne one was a no go either. Then almost had a fight up in Sydney but the company don't want to pay for his flights and accommodation so I don't think he can afford to do it even though he can stay at my place.
Wants to go back to the US, but can't afford that either haha! The troubles of being an aspiring fighter!

Yeah, he's in a tough spot at the moment :-\. Hopefully he can have one lined up eventually, hopefully not long before he can get a sponsor, even if a small one to get him somewhere.

Also heard that Rua is now off the UFC 162 card since Lil Nog is out, they couldn't find a replacement. Chael was going to be his opponent but couldn't get a visa sorted out :o. 2 of the top 3 matches taken off the card recently :-X.

I was just about to go to bed, when I took a look at Sherdog and saw that pic ;D ;D ;D. How the heck did they manage that kiss....

On a side note, UFC 162 later today and have some decent prelims. Shame Lamas Vs KZ is out, means Munoz Vs Boetsch moves off the prelims and onto the main card :(. FB prelims have Mike Pierce (on a win streak) and Seth Bacynski (not sure how to spell his last name) on there. Pierce is a better fighter as beat Seth last time, but Seth usually puts on a good fight/finish so could be a nice watch if anybody is up to watch it 8).

Anybody think Weidman will actually beat Silva today? :o.

Nah, Pierce's fight not shown on the prelims for Fuel, had to watch it on FB :P. Was able to see Melancon smash Bac though, didn't see that coming :o.

Silva there's the lesson don't be an arrogant douche.......if there is a rematch and you win either way ti goes down in the record books as a KO lose to you

very bad crowd was booing hi when they went to interview him cause they knew he was just being a arrogant douche clowning round and it's what cost him

not the first time silva has done it now it finally caught up with him

yeah but in the interview after the fight was banging on about not wanting a rematch and not wanting to fight for the belt anymore
and being so tired and it's time for more time for his family and students
joe rogan asked if that means he is retiring and silva said
no i got 10 more fights but im not fighting for the belt anymore

Yeah, just read about that on another site. He's over holding the title for so long, but now he lost to Weidman, the superfights may not that appealing. Although would still be awesome to watch! Still interesting to see what's next for him if he doesn't want a title fight.

Think this fight was similar to the Maia fight, except Weidman was able to capitalise on it :-\.

yeah just disappointing in my eyes
that yes he deserved to lose for clowning so much

Yeah, if he actually tried to fight, who knows what may have happened! There is a conspiracy going around that he was purposely showboating and mocking, wanting to lose to pass on the torch to Weidman (as his age is probably catching up with him). Doubt that though :P :-X.

called it last year, spider coasted for WAY to long against shower opponents. Vitor was unlucky to get a random kick, hendo is inconsistant, and maia doesn't know how to fight standing. imo the only notable fighters he defended his title against.

either he comes back stronger and more focused, or now his mental game wont work on his opponents, the later i think more likley. He is great to watch, but doesn't deserve no.1 p4p status, feel free to argue and disagree.

P.S. with the recent batch of TUF kids and strikeforce merge (especially souza and rockhold), the division finaly has some excitment. not the most underdone divi anymore
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on July 07, 2013, 11:06:03 PM
Rich Franklin was pretty good back when he faced Silva ;).

Doesn't deserve p4p anymore as most have him falling after a loss. GSP or Jones would have to be it, I'd lean towards Jones who is rapidly cleaning out the LHW division :o.

Also if Silva doesn't want a rematch, think Vitor will be knocking on Weidman's door for a shot. Middleweight has some depth to it, just always had Silva at the top or some fighters losing a match before a title shot (e.g. Bisping lol).

Post by: j959 on July 09, 2013, 04:06:58 PM
yeah, sorry - usually do a review - work is hampering my FF time!  ;)

partial UFC 162 review

Tim Kennedy vs Roger Gracie
Got to the pub a bit later than I had planned but got to see this fight - didn't know much about either fighter but my mate told me that he thinks Kennedy is ex-military cos he's sponsored by an apparel company called 'Ranger Up' that have an MMA line and sponsor former military peeps who are pro-MMA fighters.

Anyhoo, Gracie in my opinion took the 1st round on points with a take-down and control in the BJJ-stakes as you would expect from anyone with the Gracie name but in the 2nd rd Kennedy started to take control in the stand-up exchange. He would also pepper Gracie with uppercuts to his head in the clinch with the height difference with Gracie not really utilising to his advantage.

Kennedy continued his control of the stand-up in the 3rd and took the unanimous decision probably 2 rounds to 1.

Frankie Edgar vs Oliveira
Excellent fight - not sure if it was, but it should be 'fight of the night'.
Great exchanges on the feet from both fighters, Oliveira looks to be a potential star of the future at 23yrs and he had a lot of variation and decent power with his kick-boxing backgroung but if you see his highlight reel, it looks like he can get submissions from almost anywhere!  :o

Frankie almost got caught in a leg/heel hook in the 1st round but after that he controlled the fight with takedowns and top position control. Even though he was held at bay, Oliveira always looked dangerous even when fighting off his back and on the ground turtle waiting for Frankie to try to capitalise waiting above. But in the end unanimous decision to Edgar.

Anderson Silva vs Chris Weidman
For the UFC middleweight title - Weidman holds out his glove when Herb Dean makes the offer but Silva declines but does a small martial arts bow from what I saw. Weidman again holds out the glove for acknowledgement after Dean gives the go, but again Silva ignores.

Both men circle the cage, Silva probably doing his usual and gauging Weidman's speed and reach and Weidman weary of Silva's renowned striking. but Weidman gets a takedown early and after trying to get into side-control goes for knee then heel hook but Silva gets out.

Silva then starts goading Weidman to hit him, putting both hands up with the "c'mon" wave or 'scoop' but Weidman wisely sticks to his gameplan which i suspect is not to let Silva get in his head.

2nd round and Silva continues the goading - to me, yeah he's being 'cocky' but that's his gameplan - taunt the opponent into strikes and counter-strike as they recoil - but he's got his hands down by his sides and he wobbles his head and chest and Weidman cautious comes forward with jabs and gets Silva with a clean left-hook (as you see from Mat's gif above) that gets Silva 'on the button' and he goes down! (eerily sort of similar to how Silva put Forrest Griffen down in their LHW non-title fight a few years ago)

Weidman then starts dropping the bombs from the top and Dean has to go 'rescue' Silva from more punishment.
Good fight but would have been interesting to see if Silva had fought 'properly' and not 'cocky'. Weidman almost wants the rematch to show it wasn't a fluke but Silva post-fight didn't sound interested sort of indicating he was tired and didn't want to fight for the title anymore.

cheers,
jas
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on July 10, 2013, 11:39:13 AM
Nice review Jas! Weidman said before the fight, he would have to beat Silva twice if he won this match. Cheers for the gif as well Mat, haven't actually seen the knockout as the after-show I watched never showed the actual knockout ::).

Tim Kennedy vs Roger Gracie
Got to the pub a bit later than I had planned but got to see this fight - didn't know much about either fighter but my mate told me that he thinks Kennedy is ex-military cos he's sponsored by an apparel company called 'Ranger Up' that have an MMA line and sponsor former military peeps who are pro-MMA fighters.
That he is ex-military! Had a solid ground game and stand up, but nothing spectacular.

Edgar Vs Oliviera and Swanson Vs Siver were both awarded FOTN. Think Oliviera outperformed what most expected from him so hoping he gets an easier opponent next time out :P. Might also mention Edson Barboza was on the prelims (the guy who won KOTY last year with his spinning heel kick) won his match by referee stoppage. His leg kicks pretty much left his opponent unable to continue properly, was pretty brutal watching it.

If any of you guys have FuelTV on Foxtel or something, they are showing like a past UFC event like every day (think around 11pm, 4am and 1pm). Today is UFC 158, St. Pierre vs Diaz. They show the main card so if you're like me and rarely watch events, it's a nice way to catch up on some good fights!
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: j959 on July 11, 2013, 09:59:25 AM

Oliveira will be top flight in a few years I've no doubt ... if he works on his technical boxing a bit more and possibly works on some judo trips perhaps - i just don't see him having the quad/core base to be able to shoot for wrestling take-downs - then he'd be formidable with his BJJ skills ...  :o   ;)

Bahahaha ;D. Shame he lost, but guess when he didn't know the rules properly and not his main form of combat can understand the loss.

No way :'( will TJ still get a title shot at some point HP?
i reckon he will - wait, am i getting this guy mixed up??
he's the one who floored Gray Maynard recently yeah??
Yep, and on a winning streak in a deep LW division!

I'd assume he'll be next in line for the Bendo Vs Pettis winner due to his injury, and not like it made the UFC cancel an event (keeping Machida from having his shot :P ). So hopefully he'll still get one like early next year with some luck!

The Fox card from yesterday was good! Johnson proved why he is the Flyweight champion, he was the heavy favourite and dominated. Even finished late in the 5th round with an armbar!

Robbie Lawler and Melvin Guillard had great KOs, probably lifting their profiles again! Ellenberger was completely shut down by Rory's jab, he never really did much besides a takedown in the 3rd, when it was too late ::). Although, Rory has said he won't fight GSP for the title... So not sure where that leaves the Welterweights if GSP beats Hendricks.

Fight of the night was Ed Herman Vs Trevor Smith, was a stand and bang fight, with both guys getting rocked a few times. Halfway through, could tell it would be one of the best fights of the night, can try to catch it if you guys can!

Anyone else this machida deserved the win?

Dissappointing how the title fight went down, think they were both scared of eachother.

MUTANTE!!! can't wait for him to pull off some capoera knockouts... would be epic. Middleweight is finally starting to stackup for the first time in forever

everything on 163 pretty much went as expected

From what I read, seemed like everywhere were giving it to Machida, but Davis probably got it due to like lack of activity and those end of the round take downs (although was shut down most of the time).

I never watched the Brazillian TUF but heard Mutante was a beast :o.

Aldo broke his foot in the first round, so played it a bit safer and when Jung got injured, pounced for the win. Some calling it cheap, but he's smart considering he was fighting without his leg kicks.

On the televised Prelims, I enjoyed all the 4 matches they showed :D. McCall finally got a win against a lower skilled opponent and Australian Anthony Perosh got a 14 second KO over Vinny Magalhaes (Perosh is 40 as well and still going :o :o ).

Yeah I know it was good as with perosh. didn't see it though, were they on free to air?
But yeah that makes sense why aldo wasn't kicking.

I can't wait for vitor vs hendo... should be brutal as flower

I was actually impressed with all the Brazilians, liniker and liets especially

also did anyone watch bellator 96??? <3 Russians + flowerin askren!!! and chandler is a boss

Prelims are free-to-air but on Fuel TV. Now sure of OneHD shows them though. But the card from McCall's match to Perosh's I watched (and they showed some of the FB prelims when the matches finished quickly).

Vitor Vs Hendo in the works? :o :o. I'd expect Vitor to smash him though :-X.

I never know where to go to watch Bellator :(. Askren keeps winning with his wrestling and Chandler has smashed his competition lately from what I read.

A bit of late notice, but my bro has got an MMA fight lined up for the weekend, up in Alice Springs. Probably going to be his toughest fight to date, as he is up against a champion kickboxer, and another guy who will be trying out for TUF in September. The fight is the main event too!

Here's an article about the fight, but really more of an interview with his opponent - http://fightnewsaustralia.com/index.php/318-ben-kelleher-out-for-redemption-at-submission-4-this-weekend-in-alice-springs (http://fightnewsaustralia.com/index.php/318-ben-kelleher-out-for-redemption-at-submission-4-this-weekend-in-alice-springs)

He is trying out. I was saying it's great for him since he can head to TUF having already proven he is better than one of the other potential fighters. TUF trials are in less than a month now. I think the dates are September 11 and 12, or somewhere around there anyway. I should probably find out since he will be staying with me during the time haha.

Going to be tough to get in as I'm fairly certain they are only taking 4 middleweights. Plus his coach who usually fights lighty heavy, but doesn't really bother cutting will be going up for trials too and he is really good. Would be great if they both made it, as it would add a great storyline to the series too with two fighters from the same gym representing the Aussies (and to a lesser extent Tassie) :)

Oh and also apparently there won't be any fights to get in to the house, just training and skills demonstrations and an interview if you go past the skills stuff.

And do you know if they are taking 2 divisions? because I heard it was only one this time. either welterweight or middle, and I can't imagine them taking another welterweight batch.

If they're grabbing only 4 Middleweights, assume they'll be having 2 divisions then. Usually get 7-8 guys on each team. They have so many WW and MW seasons... Should have plenty by now you'd imagine haha.

His name is Rob Wilkinson and he has been training in MMA for a couple of years now. Only 21 and has had 5 fights now, 2 in Tasmania, 1 in Canberra, 1 in Alice Springs and also one over in the US. Has won all 5 of his fights, 4 in the first round (2 submission, 2 KO) and most recently by unanimous decision. Some of his fights are on youtube if you want to see them.

Debut Fight - TKO (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CmOmuRCx2ow)
Third Fight (In America) - Submission (http://vimeo.com/48106176)
Fourth Fight - Submission (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfCP8TK8GJY)
Fifth Fight - Decision (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=498883320205316&set=vb.229099553850362&type=2&theater)

His second fight is online, but only available if you want to pay to watch it, and his 5th isn't up yet since it only happened on the weekend.
As you can see he spent some time in America last year training with Team Quest (Chael Sonnen's gym) and wants to go back at some point and seemed to do pretty well over there. He has a FB page if you want to check it out - https://www.facebook.com/razorwilkinson?ref=ts&fref=ts (https://www.facebook.com/razorwilkinson?ref=ts&fref=ts)

His coach is Priscus Fogagnolo. I don't know much about him, but I know that he is meant to be one of Aussies best. He fights at light heavy but doesn't bother cutting weight so can easily go down to middleweight. He's had 6 fights in the CFC and won 5 of them, his only loss to James Te Huna who is now in the UFC.

Post by: Justin Bieber on August 30, 2013, 01:38:20 PM
Took me like 15 hours but finally finished the event and wasn't let down!

Condit Vs Kampann won fight of the night but really enjoyed McGee Vs Whittaker and Mizugaki Vs Perez, the latter for me was fight of the night! Certainly alot of TUF contestants. A little rundown below so spoilers if you haven't watched yet or don't want to know results, don't read on!






Elkins was able to beat Hioki in the prelims. Hioki was in line to face Aldo least year but turned it down. Has now lost 3 in a row and may be fired :(.
GSP is high on Brandon Thatch, and looked like having good reason, was dominant in his win over Justin Edwards.
Papy Abedi was dominating Dylan Andrews, but similar to one of his matches in TUF, Andrews came back in the third round and put him away! I love the heart of Andrews so was hoping it happened after seeing the first 2 rounds!
Main card kicked off with Vrad Taveres beating Bubba McDaniels. I hope Tavares gets a step up in competition, his stand up is getting alot better and he battered McDaniels with kicks first two rounds. He's won 6 out of 7 matches in the UFC so think he deserves it!
Mizugaki Vs Erik Perez was just great to watch! Whether it was standing or on the ground, was exciting with Mizugaki winning a close split decision. At one point Perez was caught in a rear naked choke and was able to twist out of it and get back up which was just :o.
McGee was able to constantly pressure the Aussie Whittaker to grab the win. Wanted Whittaker to win but McGee's constant pressure and output was able to outdo Whittaker's much cleaner shots. When he landed, he was clean with it, remember in the 2nd round he started throwing standing elbows like punches!
The recent TUF winner is Kevin Gastelum keeps showing improvement. Dropped down in weight after beating Uriah Hall, and easily dispatched Melanon. Dropped him with punched, then jumped on for a rear naked choke instead of attacking, certainly could go far if he keeps improving.
Rafael dos Anjos beat Donald Cerrone but can't remember the match much compared to others :P. Lightweight certainly stacked now :o.
In the Main Event, Kampann dominated the first round with several takedowns (the way to beat Condit from his losses) but after that, Condit started dominating on the feet. Bloodied Kampann before finishing him later on when Kampann just wouldn't stay down as the Ref had to end it.

Procrastinating doing work :P.

hey fellas, have been off FF a bit ...

yeah, I had this one - UFC 166: Velazquez vs dos Santos III - booked in for 3wks in advance!

with fights cards, esp for UFC (puncher's chance and all), you never know how it's going to go so you have to gauge on potential only and not expect too much, but this card did not disappoint - and I heard that meant from top to bottom ...

maybe HP, Daz, et al could fill in some of the prelim action??  ;)
(i'm a bit of 'snob' and just head to the pub for the main card generally)

came in towards the end of Boetsch vs Dollaway so can't really comment on that one ...

John Dodson vs Darrell Montague
Wow for the chin on Montague who kept standing and defending despite getting heavily tagged by Dodson - good job by the ref for not calling this one too quickly. Impressive was Dodson's patience in the follow up as Montague amazingly (imo) recovered and then 'wow' for Dodson's power - definitely deserves a title shot it would seem - apparently he lost to current champ Demetrious Johnson by split decision in the 'flyweight tournament' to determine the first UFC flyweight champion a little while back.

Having seen Johnson in action, it will take a bit more than power to beat the champ who's looking sharp in all aspects of the MMA game atm ...

Gabriel Gonaga vs Shawn Jordan
I'd seen the highlight reel knock-out of Mirko 'Cro-Cop' Filipovic by Gonzaga from years back but since getting close to top contender around that time he's become more of a 'gate-keeper' and that's what happened here - Jordan was on a run but the form line was average - apparently Jordan was favourite with the bookies so you might have taken the $3 or so on Gonzaga if you were in the know (not that i endorse gambling in any way) ...

another KO in rd1 follows Dodson over Montague.  :o   ;)

Gilbert Melendez vs Diego Sanchez
This looked good on paper and was probably a good draw-card for most people, myself included.

Diego is the quintissential 'over-achiever' making use of his given talent and maxmising it to the upper-limits - he's a warrior and Melendez had been toiling away in Strikeforce before that organisation got taken over by the UFC.

What a fight, really good but think Joe Rogan was over-stating it with 'best fight he'd ever seen' - definitely a notable fight in UFC history - Diego's sharp 'Mundine-like' eyebrows and his penchant for wild swings and less technical boxing led to him getting cut-up and taking a lot of damage on the way in.

The more Sanchez made it a brawl the better for him but Melendez just had too much class in the boxing arena (training with the Diaz brothers probably helps) and took the decision relatively easily despite Sanchez's chances in the final round.

Daniel Cormier vs Roy Nelson
Hadn't seen Cormier fight before and watching the highlights before the match he looked pretty dynamic. Nelson just didn't have anything to get to Cormier offensively - Cormier just kept at the 'Budda-belly' to keep him at bay and took the unanimous decision easy.

Cain Velazquez vs Junior dos Santos
The end of the 'trilogy' ...
Junior rocked Cain early but not enough and Cain was straight into the clinch with impressive 'dirty boxing' much like Randy Couture in his prime.

Jnr has the power punching but it was too one-dimensional and Velasquez had all the answers and suffocated Jnr in the clinch so he could not mount much offence against him and battered Jnr until the TKO towards the end of the 5th and final round.

Junior needs to get some more strings to his bow before being able to challenge Cain's superior cardio and more well-rounded skill set. dos Santos should probably use his power punching to set-up the take-down and then utilise his BJJ training with the Nogueira twins.

Great card - looking forward to UFC 167 - GSP vs Hendricks for the welter-weight title on 17 Nov our time!  ;)
Also has Rashard Evans vs Chael Sonnen ...
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: j959 on October 22, 2013, 05:34:33 PM
someone has rightly pointed out to me that Diego Sanchez rocked Melendez with an uppercut and had him dazed for a bit in round 3 ... but inexplicably, Sanchez started looking for the submission and went for the choke instead of capitalising on Melendez's grogginess ...

didn't make sense in the 3rd round, hard to get the grip with all the perspiration by that stage but Sanchez was probably not thinking that straight at that point having taken a fair bit of damage by that stage ...

obviously i wasn't thinking straight either and maybe a pint too many by that stage ... kidz, alcohol mucks with your memory ...  ;)

Dodson wasn't in the flyweight tournament but won the Bantamweight TUF a few seasons back, dropped to flyweight after the inception and got a crack at DJ for the title after the tournament took place. Lost it but certainly has the power, something most flyweights don't have to get those KO's (Benavidez and Lineker the other two with KO power at 125lbs). Montague one of the top flyweights outside of the UFC, so was thrown to the dogs in his first fight :-X.

Cormier set to drop to LHW as he doesn't want to fight Velasquez as they are training partners (he was in his corner as well in the Main Event). He certainly has a well rounded game, nothing exciting but certainly a top fighter at HW regardless. Saw Velasquez dominating JDS again, JDS kept coming back, basically until he couldn't go on anymore. Such another dominant performances :-X.

Managed to watch the Melendez Vs Sanchez fight, man Sanchez has the heart of a fighter! Was outmatched but never said die and even had Melendez in quite a few bad spots (dropped him once or twice, even got his back a few times). Certainly made it a good fight even though many didn't give him a chance.

Didn't catch half of the Prelims due to not waking up in time for the FB ones :(. All the FB ones ended in a stoppage. Aussie George Sotiropoulos lost to KJ Noons, not suprising as George's stand up has always been suspect. In women's action, Jessica Eye won her debut in a split decision over #2 ranked Sarah Kaufman. I thought Kaufman had it, but was close and was a good fight! Lombard TKO'd Marquardt, which may have got the loser fired. Lombard showing he still has some power at 170, but heard his cut was pretty bad so not sure how long he can keep it up for. Watched the last prelim fight chatting with Daz, Boetsch grabbed a split decision from CB Dolloway. We both thought CB won the first 2 rounds, with Boetsch winning the last (not to mention a 1 point deduction to CB for eye poking repeatedly). So we had it 28-28, but one of the judges had it 30-26 :o. Besides the last 2 prelims, didn't have big names but still had good fights for the most part!

I tend to watch the prelims as free for me, and get to know some up and comers before they make it to the main cards :D.

someone has rightly pointed out to me that Diego Sanchez rocked Melendez with an uppercut and had him dazed for a bit in round 3 ... but inexplicably, Sanchez started looking for the submission and went for the choke instead of capitalising on Melendez's grogginess ...

didn't make sense in the 3rd round, hard to get the grip with all the perspiration by that stage but Sanchez was probably not thinking that straight at that point having taken a fair bit of damage by that stage ...

obviously i wasn't thinking straight either and maybe a pint too many by that stage ... kidz, alcohol mucks with your memory ...  ;)

Yeah, was weird but probably didn't want to blow the gas tank further and went for taking the back rather than attacking. As you said, it's the 3rd round so may not be thinking as clearly as needed to make a snap judgement in the moment. Put on a hell of a fight! And don't worry, I'm sure you didn't drink that much ;).

Nice round up Jay!

John Dodson vs Darrell Montague
Wow for the chin on Montague who kept standing and defending despite getting heavily tagged by Dodson - good job by the ref for not calling this one too quickly. Impressive was Dodson's patience in the follow up as Montague amazingly (imo) recovered and then 'wow' for Dodson's power - definitely deserves a title shot it would seem - apparently he lost to current champ Demetrious Johnson by split decision in the 'flyweight tournament' to determine the first UFC flyweight champion a little while back.

cheers for the heads up silloc - any particular reasons why for those fighters?  ;)
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on October 24, 2013, 02:07:47 PM
Yeah there are! Think 3 in the next 4 weeks, with all of them being Fight Night cards (Free for those with pay tv).

Can't wait to see Mutante and Thatch fight again silloc! Thatch's debut was pretty spot on and he's being hyped by his camp as a potential future contender. Think Mutante's fight was meant to also be the fight Brazilian TUF's Final :o.

As silloc said, some good fights for the Machida Vs Munoz card.
Manuwa Vs Jimmo should be pretty good! Manuwa has the power in his hands as well, so will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
Lineker won be over in his UFC debut against Gaudinot, certainly has that power you don't see much in flyweights. But he's missed weight twice, so hopefully has a better cut this time around.
Got quite alot of former TUF fighters on the card, so may have some names people recognize. My smokie to be a good fight is Hallmann vs Iaquinta, on the prelims as well!

The next fight card is Kennedy Vs Natal, which fair to say doesn't have many names people will notice hahaha. Machida was moved from the fight, so certainly may not attract many viewers. Although, some of the fighters on there should put up a good fight! So I'm still going to watch it as free and should be a nice watch despite lesser names on here.
The co-main event is Masivdal Vs Khabilov. Been following Khabilov since he made his debut, and basically suplexed his way to a KO victory. Can watch it here: http://www.fightvideomma.com/2012/12/vinc-pichel-vs-rustam-khabilov-fight.html . It was an impressive debut... May also mention Masival has started saying he doesn't like Russians and calling Khabilov a Commie, etc. So more reason for me to go for Khab :D.
More former TUF fighters on the card, with Siler Vs Bermudez my pick of the lot to watch, should be a cracker! Larkin Vs Camozzi should also be a solid fight, Camozzi been getting a step up in competition after accepting to fight Jacare on short notice :-X.
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: silloc on October 24, 2013, 02:54:19 PM
yeah flowerin love khabilov!

And the reason I highlight those fighters, especially thatch and ferrera, is because they are up an comers. Much better to watch the rise of a star than the domination when they get to the top. the jimmo manuwa fight is just cos it should be an interesting one.

Forgot Machida Vs Munoz event was in UK, so the Main card starts at 6am to 9am. Prelims starting now. Wasn't planning to stay up for it, but had to do some work so may as well watch this stuff and do work in between if I can be bothered :P.

Hoping it will be worth staying up for 8).
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on November 03, 2013, 06:43:36 PM
After a little break due to studying, may do a mini recap :P.

Machida headkicked Munoz and now has Mousasi next up next year :o. Manuwa beat Jimmo due to some injury to Jimmo during the match, yet he's (Manuwa) is the one set to miss half a year of action :P. Lineker beat Harris in Flyweights, but he missed weight... AGAIN. If he could get under the limit, he could be a title contender, but until then won't move along the pecking order much :(. A good showing by former TUF contestants with majority of them winning!

Got the Kennedy Vs Natal card mid-week if anybody is interested, not much mainstream names there though!

Also may mention that UFC 169 is looking to be a great card :o. Mir Vs Overeem was announced first. It's now topped by Aldo Vs Lamas and Barao Vs Cruz in title fights :D. Should be an awesome card, as 3 of the best fighters in the world right there (Even if Cruz has been injured for too long).

Ok, UFC 167 - GSP vs Hendricks for the welterweight belt this Sunday, 17 Nov 2013!  8)

Think main card from 8am AEDST and 11am for me, Valk et al in the west.

This is the 20th anniversary show for the UFC so it is a pretty 'stacked' card.
HP should love the prelims and I'm going to try to get down early for Ebersole vs Story, Cerrone vs Dunham on the prelim card if I can!

Title fight will hopefully be a corker - my prediction is that Hendricks' only real chance is if he can knock-out GSP in first 2-3rds, which is easier said than done. The issue for Hendricks is that GSP has the better all-round skill-set and probably better cardio.

Lots of casual observers will bemoan GSPs 'boring' fights where he can take guys down almost at will but he just has the skill to take the fight where he wants. So it remains to be seen if Hendricks can knock him out or take GSP down and score from top position. Looking forward to it.

Well as mentioned he didn't make it on to TUF, but he is a reserve. The show is currently being filmed, which means he's not allowed to organise any fights because he may be called up to the show. So basically he is doing nothing but training at the moment. Told me he did a PB on the bench press the other day doing 2 reps of 120kg!

But yeah nothing really to report unfortunately

He would need 2 people to drop out unfortunately since he found out he is the second reserve, behind his coach. Plus they would both have to be Australian and be the middleweights, and when there is only 4 of them chances are he won't get on.

His coach almost got the call up the other day... They were concerned that one of the fighters wasn't going to make weight for his fight so had Priscus on standby ready to fly over, but Rob tells me he made weight.

I'm sure he'll get a fight early next year though so he can strut his stuff again :)

He said he was going to take a break, which could mean retirement but I think he means he's not going to get up to fight the next challenger so he'd have to relinquish the belt ...

I like GSP and am a fan like Daz but Hendricks won on my 'judging' of the fight.
I wouldn't say Hendricks was robbed, or that the result was rigged but GSP didn't win the fight imo.

I can see how judges would've scored it for GSP though - tough 1st round could've gone either way and then GSP landed more strikes. I just reckon Hendricks dominated more of the time and you can see the significant difference in actual damage between Hendricks - ie GSP will have to go to hospital for Nevada State Athletic Commission check/sign off and Hendricks won't imo ...

Pity we may not get to see a re-match cos then Hendricks will have been robbed of the opportunity to truly 'win' the belt.  ;)

UFC 167 - GSP vs Hendricks - quick recap ...

Got to the pub a bit later than had intended and just missed Ebersole vs Story ... caught the tail end of Herman vs Leites.

Cerrone vs Dunham
Was really looking forward to this one cos both fighters like to go bang! and this didn't disappoint ... Cerrone had the best of the stand-up action getting lots of Muay Thai knees into Dunham's body ... Cerrone easily took the round ...

Round 2 and a bit more of the same and Cerrone gets a take-down following a knee to Dunham's body yet again - but Cerrone gets a bit too high up and Dunham slips under and gets top position but while doing so Cerrone gets a leg triangle around Dunham's head and neck and taps out as Cerrone starts pulling him downwards to 'turn the screws' ...

Cerrone by submission triangle choke past half-way of rd2

Bagautinov vs Elliott
This was a tough one to score imo - the Russian was quick and crisp with power in the first round and a half and Elliot has this weird but effective style where he has no hands up in his boxing guard but he just keeps pushing the pace ... anyway, the Russian looks tired towards the end of the second but somehow finds a 2nd wind in the 3rd and gets the better of the stand-up to take the last round as well.

Bagautinov by unanimous decision

Koscheck vs Woodley
Never seen Woodley before but someone thought he was a Strikeforce fighter?? Anyway, he's a big welterweight and even though Koscheck's not small, definite size/power difference looking at them in the ring (looks like Woodley should be a middleweight!)

Bit of to and fro then Woodley gets Koscheck to one knee but he pops up and presses Woodley against the cage. Not much happening so Herb Dean stops them and puts them back in the middle, Koscheck goes down again and Woodley pounces but for some reason Herb Dean stands them up??

Woodley gets Koscheck against the cage and drops him again and follows up and ref calls it soon after.

Woodley wins via KO just before the end of Rd1

Lawler vs MacDonald
Saw some web articles saying that MacDonald was sort of being 'punished' for his last fight where he picked apart Jake Ellenberger from the outside with his jab - Dana White openly critcised the kid for not finishing Ellenberger that night which I thought was pretty unfair cos Ellenberger didn't do anything different but come in and eat MacDonald's jab all fight long.

Anyway, the mail was they gave MacDonald a similar fight-style opponent with a lower ranked (#10 welterweight contender) in Lawler to encourage MacDonald to 'engage' - ie if MacDonald wins, he doesn't really go up the pecking order unless he dominates and if he loses, he goes back down the list (also conspiracy theory about him vowing not to fight his team-mate in GSP for the title).

Anyhoo, MacDonald takes things way too slow in the 1st two rounds - good to be cautious but Lawler takes both rounds (imo) with more power and more significant strikes, though MacDonald's jab and his outside kicking was still scoring.

Lawler takes the split decision.

Sonnen vs Evans
I thought Sonnen might have this one after Evan's last 2 fights were a bit lack-lustre ... but to open Sonnen quickly goes in for the takedown which Evans stuffs and gets to the fence, both trying to dirty box from the fence but Evans eventually tags Sonnen and he goes down (i think) and Evans gets on top and starts with punches and elbows.

Sonnen is getting hit and turns over and Evans has mount on Sonnen's back and keeps hitting each side of Sonnen's head til Herb Dean has to call it.

Evans by TKO in the last minute of rd1.

GSP vs Hendricks
(see my post above)

I thought Hendricks took it 3 rds to 2, but the judges give it to GSP in a split decision.  :o  ;)
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on November 18, 2013, 12:20:01 PM
Great round up J! Watched the card and televised Prelims myself and chatted with Daz about them. Was a pretty good card! Agree that thought Hendricks won that fairly convincingly, but the first round was the decider.

Lawler/Woodley both Strikeforce imports and making a name for themselves. Both got some heavy hands and used it well in their matches. Both moving up in the division, especially Lawler who wouldn't be too far off a title shot (after another win or two) after beating Rory. He just beat Rory to the punch almost every time and was close to finishing it at one stage, but a great performance :o.

Evans returns to his old ways, finishing fights through fighting his style. Cerrone looked good in his match, usually loses to the top tier Lightweights but entertaining as to watch! Elliot has a weird way of fighting, his hands always down but has won a few matches (only lost to Dodson in the UFC before this match) so it says a bit about him!

I felt the exact same way

He has to rematch, he can't retire after that. He needs to either prove every one wrong and beat Hendricks or pass on the torch.

This time around he has nothing to lose, hopefully he can be more aggressive like when he was younger

Dana White has said the St-Pierre wont retire after that. He thought Hendricks won Rounds 1,2,4,5. I thought St-Pierre won 3 and 5. He only won round 5 cause he knew he had lost and would only win if he knocked Hendricks out or made him tap

Well that was The Ultimate Fighter Finale! The favourites won their fights for the contract (Julianna Pena and Chris Holdsworth). Main card was full of women fights with Jessamyn Duke and Raquel Pennington won their fights as well.

Sampo Vs Benoit won Fight of the Night award and I missed because it was a FB prelim :(. I enjoyed Yayha Vs Niinimaki though, was an awesome ground fight with a lot of excitement :D. If anybody is into BJJ, take a look at it 8).

Main Event was Nate Diaz Vs Gray Maynard, and Diaz brutalized him after he settled it. Rocked him, then pounced and kept landing clean shots flush on Maynard. He was pretty much just standing there or running away, with Diaz punching that face, Ref stopped it while Maynard was standing as he wasn't defending himself. 3 of Maynard's last 4 fights have ended by TKO/KO, so things may be catching up to him. Diaz certainly put himself back into the top of the division with that win!

Coming Saturday is the Aussie card!! Hunt headlining against Antonio Silva, not to mention Shogun Vs Te Huna. Also got Perosh Vs Bader and many others :D. Shame Whittaker had to be pulled from the card, but as it's a free card again, can't complain as looks to be pretty good overall!

So the trials for TUF happened last month. Sadly Rob wasn't picked as one of the four Aussie middleweights to represent us. He is one of two reserves (along with his coach), so if there is an injury before the show starts or during the show he (or his coach) gets to go :)

thats good to know! pretty rare there isn't an injury.

got any insight into who got through? Corey Nelson, Manawaroa, Celtic kid, would like to think they'd be in.
would also like to see dan kelly fight, but i think he's too old.

Also whilst i'm throwing names in; Steven Kennedy, brentin mumford, and lisita and warmachine o'rielly (if they can bulk up)

Andrews was unlucky, I picked it straight away that his shoulder popped out.

Vas was also unlucky, flowerin stupid stoppage, I was in rage-town population angry man.

Manimal was always gonna get thumped, he was cutting down to flyweight when they called him up and told him he could be fighting, so he stopped cutting and then found out they wanted him for welterweight. flowerin lol. And Garcia looked like he walks around at high end middle weight.

Perosh vs Bader was always gonna end badly, Bader has been very unlucky recently and perosh is 41

Te Huna just got caught, he can't seem to make that next step up to fight a decent opponent, yet he dominates all the 2nd tier fights.

Super surprised by Palelei, I think pat barry needs to try for light heavy.

Yeah, Palelei was a shock but guess Barry's stand up as gone down recently compared to what it was a while ago.

Te Huna seems to be a mid-level LHW at the moment, as you said, falls against the upper guys. Don't think Shogun is back but that was a nice uppercut!

Didn't get to see the FB prelims as usually sleep til late :(. Doesn't sound like a good outting there and odds stacked against Manimal :o. That is some difference from cutting to flyweight then going back to welterweight...

Also Thug rose namajunas <3

Yeah, read about it today! Dana said he'd be bringing this one next and it'll be the next TUF season! They signed 11 over from Invicta and think they have another 5 spots to fill and actual tournament setting with the winner getting the title!

Haven't seen much of them although know some of them are meant to be great, I can always catch up on Invicta stuff as apparently they upload entire events and everything to youtube :o :o :o.

also realy enjoying the chicks, the lack of weight and their awesome flexability, makes for really exciting ground game. they should bring straw weight in for our girl bec hyatt.

also LHW divi is so stacked, top ten is stupid. but i feel its unfair with jones, cows way to tall. i would imagine if he gets a few more wins, he will be forced up.

and 160 should be fun with the aus-nz boys

Just pointing out that I called it earlier in the year :P

Bec's fan involvement got me into wmma and onto all those other girls, she posts about friends of hers on Facebook and is really down to earth. She nearly replies to EVERY post on her wall, I only asked her the other month when she's fighting next and she said something along the lines of "invicta 8 early 2014 probs, but hopefully not" at the time I though she meant she'd fill in for injury in invicta 7, but now i'm guessing she already knew more about UFC.

DID YOU GUYS HEAR?!?!?! GSP relinquishing his title to take a step away from the cage. Didn't say he's retiring fully, but I expect it more than likely. Had an epic career and going out on top is how it should be if he's not there mentally. Better than going on further and tarnishing his great record.

Hendricks Vs Lawler at UFC 171 for the vacated title next year!

Today is the Fox Card with the Flyweight title on the line for those interested! The match I was looking forward to is gone (Brown Vs Condit) but top two fights should be great and have some really good matches on there. Faber Vs McDonald the one that has my interest the most followed by the Flyweight title match!

Has alot of the smaller weight classes so may not be for everybody's taste :P.

Mighty Mouse now set for a long reign probably... KO'd Benavidez :o. Feel for Benavidez, only losses have come against Cruz and Johnson, so he's kinda stuck behind them if they keep the titles.

I was rooting for Faber so didn't mind it, although McDonald is like 22, plenty of time for him to hone in on his skills and grow as a fighter. Better than him possibly losing twice in a row to Barao and be similar to Benavidez behind Johnson at such a younger age.

I rocked up to the pub to watch and they said they weren't showing it ... drove to the next pub and ... I missed it!

disappointing cos I really wanted to see Johnson v Benavidez 2 ... Johnson just keeps impressing every single fight ... i'm in the group that says he is definitely in that top10 pound for pound ...  ;)

Yeah, nobody expected it to be over as fast as it happened, so unlucky there :(. DJ should certainly be well inside the top 10 after that performance, as people knock flyweights for their KO power.

Silva Vs Weidman 2 should be great! Not to mention a chance to see Rousey beat Tate again :P. I wanted to watch it but said I'll go to Day 4 at the Ashes so will miss it. Mixed feelings there but hopefully it's a great event to end out the year!

sorry, had a break from work and correspondingly FF ...

I think most would agree that he's the champnow - he definitively had control of the fight to that point and just unfortunate for Silva injury-wise but again there might be some doubt in the 'uneducated's' minds that this was a second fluke victory.

sure, as a MMA fan I wanted to see what a switched on Silva might have been like and if it would test Weidman's ability to stand, but again Weidman was not intimidated by Silva's striking prowess so to me, that shows it wasn't a fluke.

I couldn't pick up the break until the slow-mo replay and then the whole bar had a collective loud and empathetic groan of, "ugghhh" when the replay showed it clearly ... thankfully he seems to be recovering well and will hopefully get to see him fight a few more times before he retires properly as one of the all-time greats ...  :)
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on January 22, 2014, 12:44:47 PM
Yeah, now we can wait and see him face off against Vitor to see how he stacked up to the other contenders!

May do a little round up for the past 2 fight night cards, seeing as you can only watch them if you have Cable or bought that UFC Fight Pass. Although I can watch prelims, just not the old FB ones which are only shown on Fight Pass (If I wake up early enough).

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 34 - SAFFIEDINE VS. LIM
Although Hyun Gyu Lim showed great heart down the stretch, Tarec Saffiedine just stuck to his game plan and dominated. He didn't go for the kill, but his leg kicks are brutal, literally dropping Lim at times. Saffa beat Marquart in the last Strikeforce event to win the title using the same gameplan, leg kicks and picking apart his opponent. Can't wait to see him get a step up in competition now! Lim looks to pack quite a punch and think he rose his stock last night regardless of the loss.
Not too much else of note as majority were fighters from the area.

UFC FIGHT NIGHT 35 - ROCKHOLD VS. PHILIPPOU
Rockhold! Had a stiff opening test against Vitor, but showed composure and patience is disposing of Philippou via a liver kick. Used kicks to back him up before finishing him off. Certainly could contend for the title in the near future if he gets another win or two under his belt in the UFC.
Brad Tavares caused an upset over Lorenz Larkin (who people thought beat Francis Carmont in his first UFC fight). Tavares seemed first to the punch and has steadily improved since entering the UFC from TUF.  He's not too flash but he is very solid everywhere and showed tonight he can use his head as well to shut down a dangerous opponent. On a 5 fight win streak in MW as well!
T.J. Dillashaw pretty much dominated Mike Easton, should be getting closer to a title shot in maybe a year. Needs a few more top wins but he's looked great recently bar his loss.
Yoel Romero Palacio was able to beat Derek Brunson via strikes in the 3rd round. Could count this as a come from behind as Brunson was controlling him early, but then Yoel was able to have that burst in the 3rd and put him away. Ref took his time in stopping the fight though...
Former Flyweight Title Contender John Moraga had a close match with Dustin Ortiz, so may not be far off another shot if he can put together quite a big win streak (as dominated by DJ first time around) since Flyweights don't have too many in there.

Now for the events coming up :P.

UFC ON FOX 10 - HENDERSON VS. THOMSON
Thomson was getting that title shot until Pettis got injured. Keeping busy and if he can pull out the win here, then certainly deserves that shot. Although Grant is hard done by as that concussion really set him back for his title shot :(.
Gonzaga Vs Miocic could be a good scrap! Gonzaga has some form recently KOing most people besides Travis Browne. Then Miocic looked extremely good against Roy Nelson, so can only hope for fireworks!
Cerrone also in action 8).
In the prelims, Pettis' younger brother Sergio is facing Alex Caceres and think that could be a great match as when on, Caceres looks great! Both have good ground games and striking, so could even steal the show!
Also have Jabouin Vs Wineland in the prelims, which should be a good stand up fight for those that like them.

UFC 169

Bit too tired to do a recap right now, but just wanted to see what people's thoughts were on the referee stoppage for the Bantamweight title fight??

I thought sort of fair but in my opinion Faber was still 'intelligently defending' cos Barao was just hitting Faber's arm that he was using to cover his head.

I don't know why Faber didn't just verbally shout out to Herb Dean that he was ok?? 
don't make no sense???
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on February 04, 2014, 11:04:48 PM
Saw that, think it was a bit premature as agree with you, certainly was defending himself well and wasn't taking too much damage. Was certainly rocked and in trouble, but would have let it go a bit longer. Doubt he was thinking to scream out incase it wasn't heard, so tried that thumbs up but to no avail.

Have to say though, even with all that, he didn't complain and took that stoppage as it was. Said he'll get back to fighting his way back to a shot so got to admire him for that. Just sad it was taken away from him so fast after smashing that 2013 away.

Aldo was able to hold off Lamas but knew Lamas was a tough guy. Took those leg kicks and everything and kept on coming! Could even get a superfight of Aldo Vs Pettis soon!!!! Except, Aldo would have to vacate his FW belt to get that LW shot.

Hmm haven't actually watched the season. Yeah I'm sure he would be spewing. Because he wasn't on the show he ended up breaking his collarbone and required surgery around christmas time. Currently healing, but he is entered in to an 8 man tournament to fight for the Middleweight championship for the Brace organisation. First fight is in May (I think).

Funny thing was Brace announced the tournament and asked people to submit their resumes if they wanted to apply, then a few days later before he applied he received an email from them asking if he would like to enter. So he was basically hand picked for it :)

Haven't heard from him in a while, so assuming it's all going fine. Got a metal rod screwed on to the collar bone, so should be pretty tough :)
I think they said he could start full training 6 weeks after the surgery, so should be close to a full return to training. When I was home over summer I went to the gym and did some personal training with him even though he only had one arm. Pictures don't do him justice, he is a big boy when you see him in person! :o

UFC 170 recap
(and opinion)

Stephen Thompson vs Rob Whittaker
Hadn't seen 'Aussie' Rob (NZ born) Whittaker fight before and he wasn't bad but he just came up against a striker with some range and precision. Whittaker was tagging Thompson with his jab but it was tough to close the distance with Thompson's long-leg kicks (kick-boxing background? definitely martial arts base).

Whittaker had trouble closing the distance because of this and he got a straight right which put him down and when he went to come up got hit again and grabbed Thompson's leg trying to recover but he wasn't able to defend enough before Herb Dean called towards the latter half of the 1st rd.

Analysis: Whittaker has the power, but he needs to train to stay in the pocket more if he wants to trade with better strikers with more length (and precision)
Title: Re: UFC
Post by: Justin Bieber on February 24, 2014, 09:08:26 PM
Tough break for Rob HB :(. Glad to hear he's got his next match lined up for him in that Tourney! Winning it would certainly help out getting a bigger name 8).

Yeah, Whittaker is still young and learning. Has some wrestling ability but chooses to stand and use his jab with his past few opponents. Shouldn't have stood with Thompson with his kickboxing skills :-X. Probably just needs to work on his gameplans a bit more rather than standing with everybody!

UFC 170 wasn't too bad from some of the prelims I saw. All went to decision though but some nice fights I liked there. Davis Vs Eye was a very close fight with two of the top women in the division. Also saw the potential #1 contender for the Bantamweight title in Assuncao (however you spell it :P ) dominate his opponent!

Title: Re: UFC
Post by: j959 on March 17, 2014, 01:25:10 PM
UFC 171 - quick recap:

Got to the pub late and missed Lombard vs Shields ...  :'(
Was 'reliably' informed that Lombard dominated Shields and looked almost 'beastly'.

Myles Jury vs Diego Sanchez
Always a crowd-pleasing fighter, Diego but he has only 1-speed and no plan B - basically Diego started brawling and got some good shots in but Jury then just kept him at bay and picked him apart with the jab, leaving Diego cut and bloodied and getting the decision easily.

Analysis: Diego needs to control his aggression more and use his head but the way he fights is to hype himself up into a frenzy, so maybe he knows no other way?? In any event, this style makes him a crowd favourite and excitement machine.

Tyron Woodley vs Carlos Condit
Woodley looked HUGE! He is a 'big' welterweight and I did think that Condit would get smashed - Woodley was a pretty big underdog but understandable given Condit's experience. Anyway, Condit wasn't in as much trouble as I thought but Woodley's power meant as usual that the fight could have ended quickly at any time.

Exchanges on the feet were pretty even, except for the difference in power with Woodley and on the ground, Woodley was definitely worried about Condit's under-rated BJJ and let him stand up a few times. Then Condit's ankle buckled a bit in an exchange and a little while later in the 2nd round he went to check a kick and in doing so put all his weight on other leg and his knee blew out with the ref quickly stepping in with Condit on the ground writhing in agony.

Multiple replays brought collective groans from the crowd and I couldn't watch it again after the 3rd or so slo-mo replay.  :-X  :-\ ... ouch!

Woodley is now a definite contender for the welterweight title - would have been good to see if the fight went deep into the 3rd round if Woodley's cardio would have stood up. He is a devastating finisher but haven't seen him deep into fights as yet.

Johny Hendricks vs Robbie Lawler
I thought this would be a 'redemption' fight for Hendricks, with him winning the belt he should have been given last time against GSP. Again, I wouldn't say that Hendricks was robbed but the scoring system for MMA needs to be over-hauled as it is too weighted towards wreslters and take-downs which seem to 'score' even if the person does nothing to the opponent on the ground or they stand-up straight away.

Anyway, Lawler looked cool, calm and collected and I thought that Hendricks' experience having already just fought for the title would be noticeable but it wasn't so. Hendricks definitely took the first two rounds but I didn't see any of the power he had brought to the octogon in all his recent fights.

I think he let Lawler back in, and Lawler got comfortable and Lawler definitely got the 3rd & 4th rounds with multiple jabs and overhand lefts to Hendricks' head.  Final round I thought was pretty similar to the 3rd & 4th except Hendricks knew that he needed it to win the belt and he upped his work-rate and got his jab and straight and over-hand lefts going and finally got Lawler to the ground to end the round. Got the unanimous and definitely deserved the title but where was the fighter who I reckon dominated GSP last fight??

Lawler was impressive and certainly is no slouch, but surely there was a come-down in class for Hendricks fighting Lawler over GSP, but that just was not evident.

I think Woodley should get the shot against Hendricks next and then maybe let Lawler have another crack at the winner.

cheers,
j959

Post by: Justin Bieber on March 17, 2014, 03:44:51 PM
Nice round up once again Jay :).

Heard Lombard pretty much dominated Shields, and had him almost finished that first round. The drop down to WW for him has seen him look alot better than when he was at MW when he entered.

Jury was injured in his first TUF, came back for another and didn't make finals. Undefeated though in actual competition so they gave him a step up here in Diego, even said he was "surprised at how easy he beat him"...

Sad about Condit, think it was the takedown in the 2nd which hurt his knee, then landing on it after being kicked was too much. Hopefully he recovers well, but may be quite the layoff. Massive win for Woodley though :o. As you said J, looked to be controlling Condit that first round but sort of gassed in the 2nd, so a bit of a reprieve that Condit got injured.

Think you're right, Woodley looks next up for Hendricks. Think Lawler may face like Shields or somebody still high up to keep him active. But WW is quite open, still have others like Lombard, Stun Gun, Matt Brown even (was meant to fight Condit end of last year but then had to pull out :( ). I'd love to see Matt Brown in there, although he's pretty much a stand up guy with many of his losses in the past coming from submissions.

For the prelims, the ones I saw were pretty action packed.
Jessica Andrade may be like 2 wins away from a title shot considering the depth of the division.
Dennis Bermudez continues his tear in the FW division after losing his TUF final to Diego Brandao. Very strong wrestler who controlled Hettes and picked him apart on the feet as well until basically Hettes would fall down when he was punched in the 3rd round.
The man who is hyped up alot ever since he beat Uriah Hall, Kelvin Gastelum, beat Rick Story. Pretty big step up in competition for him and he looked good in the first round, got rocked in the 2nd and came back in what was a close contest. He was the favourite going in against Story which I don't know why he was, but future looks bright for him!

"i didnt feel well before the fight, not sure if that affected my power or he is that tough"
Silva needed to throw more body shots kicks or punches, fight ended just soon enough, they were starting to run out of gas

defs one of the best scraps ive seen, was starting to think Silva's corner might throw in the towel, eating too many shots, Brown was super accurate, interesting when he said
"i didnt feel well before the fight, not sure if that affected my power or he is that tough"
Silva needed to throw more body shots kicks or punches, fight ended just soon enough, they were starting to run out of gas

Feels like ages since I've been able to watch a UFC PPV.

hopefully get to the pub for UFC 173, next Sun, 25 May 2014 for Barao v Dilliashaw.  ;)

was wondering how Dillishaw got a shot so soon, did i miss something or has he been thrown to the wolves?

I haven't been following him at all but I don't think there's much else around ...

Faber might get another shot soon - I still think the call to end the fight was incorrect but open to Herb Dean.

Barao is just flat out on another level, 1st rounder imo

Assuncao beat Dillashaw so would have got the title shot but is currently injured, so they put TJ in there. Don't think he has what it takes to beat Barao either :-X.

Faber Vs Cacares at UFC 175 I think (The Weidman card), so think they are just giving him fights as he puts on great fights and has kinda lost too many title matches to just throw him constant title contenders (and leave nobody for Barao :P ). May be a while until he's able to build up to it again. Would love to see him Vs Cruz again when Cruz is ready to fight!

Yeah he should have Daz, so should his coach. No idea why neither made it (both were the reserves).

Next fight is in Sydney in early August, so will finally be able to watch him fight.

Turns out it was more of a triangle choke into an armbar, rather than just armbar straight up :)

Before the fight, I thought that Barao would dominate Dillashaw. That was not the case. Dillashaw nearly got the knock out in round 1 and from then on looked to be an entire level above Barao. He fought a near perfect fight. The reaction of his team mates, Urijah Faber and Joseph Benavidez, was simply amazing.

Cormier, man handled Hendo. Dominated from start to finish and made Hendo look like a rag doll. Straight after the fight, he issued the challenge to Jones. Myself and my mate, both feel that he won't get to fight Jones. He both believe Gustafsson will get the title

Lawler vs Ellenberger was a good fight. Lawler seemed like a changed fighter in the ring since his title fight against Hendricks. he also wants another title shot.

The biggest moment for me, was probably Jamie Varner fighting through more than half a round with a broken ankle. Seeing the replays was very hard to watch, as his foot was just like jelly bending at weird angles.

ouch! missed the Varner fight.

Lawler vs Ellenburger - Lawler definitely a class above now. still clear no#1 contender imo - should get another title fight pretty soon I reckon.

Cormier vs Hendo - Hendo had nothing without the TRT i'm afraid, not a good gauge of where DC sits in the LHW hierarchy - can't give Cormier a title fight against Jones yet imo - DC hasn't fought anyone quality in UFC yet.

Barao vs Dillashaw - wow! talk about someone seizing the moment. I haven't seen TJ fight before and all the predictions were for an easy win for Barao seeing as TJ lost to Assuncao (but I later read it was a close split decision).

TJ just performed when he had to and kept Barao guessing with different levels with his kicks and punches. I really like how TJ is able to stay in the pocket and counter but then he doesn't push it for too long. One of the best cerebral/thinking-man wins I've ever seen - be interesting who he fights next for the title.

Not taking anything away from Dillashaw but Barao had an off night, might have been the change up of levels that kept Barao at bay.

I saw highlights of that Varner fight, gotta hand it to him for showing heart to finish the round, but that would have been brutal to try and continue. Also when the doctor came to check on him, there's a gif somewhere where the doctor steps on the injured foot ::).

Dillashaw :o :o :o. Looked near flawless, been watching him since he got TKO'd on the TUF finale a while back (to John Dodson) and has been slowly improving his game since and has looked good, but not that good! As you guys said, certainly stepped up and took the fight to Barao, I never would have called that. Looks like Assuncao is even more likely to get next shot when fit considering he has that close victory over TJ (conspiracy is that he only got the win because it was in Brazil :P ).

Watched the prelims and the Iaquinta loss was a shock, as he was controlling Clarke for most of the time, then got caught in a Darce and was choked out :o
