I think I'd give the slight edge to Amir in that one
 
2012-09-29 06:10:01 PM  

Jensaarai: Joking aside, it looks like Hardy's wrestling is coming along nicely.


Agreed, he has improved a lot there, and I'm glad to see him treat MMA like MMA and not just a boxing match.
 
2012-09-29 06:12:35 PM  
Hardy in that one. Even after 2 I think
 
2012-09-29 06:12:45 PM  
10-9 Hardy. 20-18.
 
2012-09-29 06:12:47 PM  
20-18 Hardy.
 
2012-09-29 06:12:51 PM  
Was that upkick legal?
 
2012-09-29 06:12:54 PM  
10-9 Hardy for the takedowns and slightly better striking. 19-19 overall.

Jensaarai: Was that upkick legal?


I don't think so, his right knee was on the ground and his left might have been, too.

Seriously. If someone had come into this thread saying "Dan Hardy's wrestling will make the difference for him" at the beginning of this thread, would anyone have taken it as not-sarcasm?

Blood for the blood god.

/a little anyway
 
2012-09-29 06:18:47 PM  
Hardy 10-9 for damage from the top and clean shots standing, taking the fight 29-28
 
2012-09-29 06:19:35 PM  
First round was close, but rounds 2 and 3 were clearly Hardy so if the judges screw it up I'll be slightly pissed
 
2012-09-29 06:20:03 PM  
10-9 Hardy. 30-27. (But 29-28 is reasonable too. First round was close.)
 
2012-09-29 06:21:25 PM  
God damn Amir got jacked. Paper skin or something

Happy for hardy, he looked pretty good

Sir Digby: God damn Amir got jacked. Paper skin or something


Hardy has +5 vorpal elbows

Lol!

This fight was hard to pick. I worry about Struve's chin sometimes. Not that he has a glass chin, but he has been knocked out by heavy hitters multiple times, and Miocic is a heavy hitter. I just think Struve's submissions will make the difference if it goes to the ground
 
2012-09-29 06:28:00 PM  
I like both Struve and Miocic. Stipe is really good, plus he's a local boy. Struve is a big test though. I picked Struve, but I'm fine with whoever wins.
 
2012-09-29 06:28:02 PM  
Pistol fingers!
 
2012-09-29 06:28:46 PM  
Miocic looks like Cro Cop, sounds like Mir.
 
2012-09-29 06:29:35 PM  

psychicdeath99: CreativeFarkHandle:

Nice picks


Thanks. It makes for the crapfest that happened last week.
 
2012-09-29 06:30:33 PM  

Jensaarai: Miocic looks like Cro Cop, sounds like Mir.


I thought the same thing! Lol

He has trained under Cro Cop and is of Croatian descent.

cookiefleck: Jensaarai: Miocic looks like Cro Cop, sounds like Mir.

I thought the same thing! Lol


Didn't he come on the scene shortly after that horrible Mir-CroCop hugfest?

/shudder

That fight was like Matrix 2 & 3. NEVER HAPPENED
 
2012-09-29 06:34:38 PM  
I didn't know Struve was still growing. Damn. 7 ft.
 
2012-09-29 06:35:16 PM  
If this fight goes 5 rounds I will eat my computer

Lol growing boy

They're in Europe, dummy. Metric feet are different.
 
2012-09-29 06:37:42 PM  
Struve is getting picked apart so far
 
2012-09-29 06:37:53 PM  
He's what, 23? Extremely rare to keep growing taller at that age, but not impossible, IIRC.
 
2012-09-29 06:39:46 PM  
Wise move.
 
2012-09-29 06:40:58 PM  
LOL @ catching the kick but being out of range with the counterpunch.
 
2012-09-29 06:41:35 PM  

Jensaarai: He's what, 23? Extremely rare to keep growing taller at that age, but not impossible, IIRC.


Yeah. He doesn't have the telltale acromegaly features, though, so I imagine he's at least close to full grown.
 
2012-09-29 06:41:41 PM  
10-9 Miocic, landed the better shots, though pretty close.
 
2012-09-29 06:41:42 PM  
Stipe makes no sense.

He walked him to the cage like 3 times and then let him right off.
 
2012-09-29 06:41:52 PM  
HOORRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!
 
2012-09-29 06:42:22 PM  
RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUVE
 
2012-09-29 06:42:36 PM  
Struve has reach for days but it doesn't mean much because he's slow
 
2012-09-29 06:42:41 PM  
I'd have to go 10-9 Miocic on that round, but it was close.
 
2012-09-29 06:42:43 PM  

therawuncut: HOORRRRRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!


Watch out, he may be the dragon born!
 
2012-09-29 06:42:55 PM  
NUT SHOT
 
2012-09-29 06:43:19 PM  
Okay, in my very limited experience, bigger, taller people, seem to view smaller people as lil creatures, unless really provoked. Like they take pity.
 
2012-09-29 06:43:31 PM  
He just did it again.

What the hell is he thinking?
 
2012-09-29 06:44:52 PM  
Miocic got ran backwards in laps.
 
2012-09-29 06:45:59 PM  
Nice back and forth round!
 
2012-09-29 06:46:22 PM  
Ballgame.
 
2012-09-29 06:46:31 PM  
Good stoppage.
