First let me state I am giving my own system and I am going to do it a bit differently- no 10-9 unless deserved I mean Rich Franklin/ Silva was probably a 10-9 round so far - and what did he do to get a 10-9? So expect to see an ACTUAL story on how the round is going- If one guy is doing a ton of damage from the bottom while the guy up top is pulling the Lay and Pray- don't expect to see a 10-9 round.
Also I'm not a Fighter- I'm a Fan- I know most of the holds such but I'm not going to go into details- I'll give you the important stuff (or I'll try)
Also Abbreviations - RNC - Rear Naked Choke - G- Guard etc
Finally I'm doing all this with no rewrites- so you are getting stream notes- don't like it- don't read.
Fight Night Begins
Nate Diaz vs Alvin Robinson
Coupla punches and a clinch - AR jumps in a . . .standing full guard? I mean looked like a bear hug I guess- wraps his legs around him - Nate slams him down next to the fence-
Rogan Irritation #1 - "BIG slam by DIaz" - no when a guy wrapped around you is there a choice? and I'm sure Diaz did not want to pin himself
in the OTHER corner if he could have. seems like Nate is taking more damage here- he's looking for a big punch as AR is just chipping on him.
Rogan irriattion #2 "Great Elbows form the top" uh no he tossed 2 so far (TIVO!) and both about 2 inches there
Up and back down- AR grabs a GREAT Gul - but Nate weathers it and never stopps working and gives a textbook way on how to survive it - now Nate is giving some damage here
roll around and nate goes for a plata and a shoulder lock and ends up on the bottom - Nate is doing more from the bottom.
Triangle From the Bottom and AR taps
MUCH more impressive for Nate there than the TUF fight.
Great sportsmanship there and Nate impresses me here.
Funny Bit- Nate thanks his boxing coach for the help with the win- He threw TWO punches before the clinch -and yes I looked :-)
Thiago Tavares vs Michihiro Omigawa
Is Omiga the same dude that went flying at BJ Penn a bit back? Looks like him- we didn;t have the pick'em contest this time so I'm going cold to this card.
Dancing - TT goes for a double stuffed- but OM doesn't get clear and goes down at the fence-
TT picks him up and shows Rogan what a slam is.
TT does NOTHING and om gets up
TT jumps on his back and has his back on the ground
stand up and belly to back by TT
Rogan Irritance #3 "Its such a chess match now"
Oh yes laying on your opponent for 35 seconds is great stategy - I mean thats how Tim kept his title vs Randy right?
-- HOW are there tickets for UFC 81 still there! I mean Mir/Lesnar! and Tim is .. . oh nevermind.
Om is up and has TT legs- tosses them to one side and ONE-TWO on his head- you hear TT's head bounce
great chess move there Joe.
TT lays there and eats kicks to the thigh
I'm going 10-9 OM for TT doing JACK on the ground and the one-two better than the belly to back suplex
Dancing OM misses the sweep and TT lay and pray
TT is just holding his leg in the van gundy grip
Seperate - NICE head kick by TT
Dancing - well boring dancing
crowd is bored
Lay and pray but OM is doing some damage
Back up at 24 sec and I'm setting to over and under at punches at 3
crowd boos a standup - you seen that before?
Well I'm wrong OM chased with 6 punches connected 2 as TT ran - TT did get a kick - so 3 connections total
CROWD IS DEAD at round break - i mean DEAD like
I'll go 10-8 for OM here I bet the Judges are giving both rounds to TT as they reward the Lay and pray and I dicount points for it.
TT with yet another shoot as Rogan makes my point on the prev paragraph - Dana must tell him to not mention lay and pray bores the fans
APril Fight night seems AWESOME by the way.
actual fighting on the ground! Look out here! OM tosses him over and gets top pos for the first time I think.
Great stuff there and OM is up and TT lays there - Great Upkick and OM is bleeding
Back down and Om is doing more damage but too little too late here- I think the blood is making this round done here
Crowd is STILL dead as the round ends
OM brow is split nasty cut there- if TT had done that rd one this fight might have been stopped later
I'd go 10-9 Om there as well for agressiveness would have been 10-8 but nice upkicks
I wrong though as the lay and pray should win here.
I bet money its 29-28 across the board for TT
nope 30-27,29-28,30-27 and the crowd is STILL dead- they are goin to have to bring strippers in to wake up the crowd (for you wresting fans think a Mark Henry/Vicera 30 minute Iron man Match dead)
Joe interveiws Sly- oh yeah have a interveiw to wake up the crowd
Flair ain;t waking up this crowd at this point. I FF the interveiw.
Patrick Cote VS Drew Mcfedries
THIS is the fight I want to see- and I'm ashamed that the crowd is so dead for this one- hopefully it will be up soon
YES! Just SAYING COTE wakes the crowd!!!
More punches in 20 sec than the entire round 1 of the last fight
GREAT exchanges and mini clinches
Drew has a 6 pack- you normally don;t see that
We pass the number of punches for the last fight at 3:35 of the fight
NICE upppercut and Cote rides him down punching
Herb does a GREAT job standing there giving Drew a chance -
Its all over!!
My TV speakers break adn WTF!
oh never mind Cote is cussing out the crowd.
Drew is backup -
On replays not a lot of damage there but Drew was just covered up there- Dean had to stop it.
They show Leah coming back form the break
10 seconds of waving as they plug the show- he stops then waves again- then gives the surfer sign then sits there- then starts waving
I love live TV we had 20-25 seconds of her on TV and I bet it aged her 10 years mentally
COTE channels GSP during the interveiw - btu does mention Drews Mom who passed VERY Classy
We hit the tape to fill time before the main event
Kurt Pellegrino vs Alberto Crane
We have a fight were I out weight the COMBINED fighters
I go get more chicken wings
SMACK! and the Batman is down! fOR SOME REASON HE WENT FOR A SUB instead of the stoppage - and Pel gets his head out and takes the top.
Pay attention kids you don;t get bonus points for a sub- end the fight and go home
Crane is uh excited to be here
I'm just saying
standup and they don;t get that close again
Pel is TUANTING HIM! This dude should be giving a speech right now over your defeated rear and you are taunting him!
Maybe beacuse he has done NOTHING since then?
AC goes for the takedown and KP hits a SWEET legal knee and tees off on him
kurt tosses him
ac is bloody as the round ends
I'm going 10-8 KURT as he dominated after the first min - AC is bleeding from 3 places AT LEAST
tie up on the fence
Kurt with some damage there
Kurt with a nice shot - did he hit his eye? and herb stops it?
bad stoppage there
Herb says you closed your eyes and stopped defending yourself-
What? You have to open your eyes while getting hit?
Replays shows I'm a genius and he did get popped in the eye
Kurt has a hole in his Jaw
Kurt loves it
Kurt thought it was a punch that did the job
Kurt is my hero- dang hes funny
More Brock Love - I hope Mir taps him
Mike Swick vs Josh Burkman
Rd-1 Swick with a NICE takedown- other than that a snoozefest neither really wanted to make a mistake.
10-9 Burkman for a NICE roundhouse and takedown
Round two and Swick hits a great ounch there but does NOT follow up
Good action here but not much to make me pause the Tivo here
Round 2 ends as the crowd dies
round and someone needs a Round
and the crowd boos away and YOU CAN SEE PEOPLE BEATING TRAFFIC!!!!
Swicks says he's sorry
Crowd still booing
Sorry for the abrupt end here folks- This fight just stunk out loud.
See you in April!
