You get knocked down and your opponent walks away, you have to get back up. If you don't get up, you are TKO'ed.

dr_blasto: the biggest redneck here: If dumbassery were a crime, Struve would get arrested every fight.

Let's not forget, the reason they're on the mat is because Hunt WANTS to be there. For some reason. Possibly TBI, can't be sure.


No reason for anyone to get anywhere close to Struve, but he gets in these fights all the time where he wants to prove he's got a chin. He doesn't, and there are the results. Like I said, utter dumbassery.

Earguy: Earguy: Earguy: Earguy: Earguy: I didn't do a Tapout card, but for this fight I predict Kim takes it.

And I predict Hirota next.

Dammit.  I didn't know much about either Yahya nor Hirota, so I went with what I read on the internet.  When I saw Hirota's slow air-punches in the intro promo, I thought I might have made the wrong call.  And I did.

Okay, next up:  Okami vs Lombard.  I'm going with Okami, though the odds are with Lombard.  Decision, not a particularly exciting fight.

Okay, I'm back on track.

Next, Gomi/Sanchez?  I'm taking Sanchez.  The leather is going to fly.  Blood gods may be appeased.  But I don't think we'll see a KO, I could be wrong about that, but that's my prediction.  Pretty confident about picking Sanchez as the winner though.

Wooo!  Feeling like a wizard now.

Hunt vs Struve:  I'm less confident about this call.  I have my reservations about Struve, but I think he'll win it.  I think they're trying to build him up and it's something of a step-ladder match, they're setting Struve up to win.  But Hunt could break out and hit Struve on a pretty glassy chin.  Still, since I must choose, I'm going with Struve.


Dammit, I got too impressed by Struve's size.  I knew I should have gone with Hunt, but I didn't think he had the stamina to win.  Oh well.  One more chance for redemption.

Silva vs. Stann:  I remember how sad it was to watch Muhammad Ali fight past his prime.  Now it's Silva.  Hey, anything can happen, but I'm going with Stann.  Hell, I'm going to call it, Stann by KO/TKO.  No decision in this one.

The angle from the cameraman standing right behind Struve as he gets KO'd is awesome.

Hunt didn't even answer any of those post fight questions. I'm thinking he was a little too rocked to fully understand what he was being asked.

WAR STANN

Struve has one of the worst fight IQs in the whole company. It's on par with Palhares, Sonnen, and Alves.

dr_blasto: RevMercutio: Mark Hunt remains unfireable.

I know, right? He was a throwaway, UFC tried to pay him out of his contract even but he insisted in taking a fight instead.


I guess that motivated him.  Now he actually does stuff on the ground.
 
2013-03-03 12:42:01 AM
Feints and takedowns?  STFU
 
2013-03-03 12:42:10 AM
What are Feints?
 
2013-03-03 12:42:38 AM
No, Joe- he WAS one of the most feared fighters in the sport.
 
2013-03-03 12:43:07 AM
Oh hey, Stann isn't fighting in front of a crowd that will suck his dick just because he's the UFC's military posterboy.

"Yeah."

Good go-to answer for most post fight questions.

Stann was in the military? Why hasn't anybody mentioned this??

That's how all of his post fight interviews go. If he's really proud of himself, you might get a multi-word sentence out of the guy.

That's right. That's the only reason to like the guy. It has nothing to do with him being a good person who won't shiat talk, and has respect for each and every opponent.

Odds that Silva comes out to the PRIDE theme?

Oh, no doubt. He's clearly gotten his shiat together and actually trains now. Hunt is completely un-hateable.

The focus is to PUNCH WANDY IN THE CHIN.

I'm sleepy as hell, but I've made it this far, I might as well try to stick it out.

I sure miss living in the Central time zone.
 
2013-03-03 12:46:18 AM
don't care for the American Hero routine. But I do want to see him stomp Silva, and then release a bald eagle to feed on his carcass.


MURRICA!!!!!

Win or lose, I hope Wanderlei retires. He's been courting brain damage way too long.

/only 36, but tons of mileage

Woot!

Sandstorm!!!

For some reason I find fighters like that endearing.  Him, Robbie Lawlor, Fedor.  Go in, knock off someones head, get your hand raised, say "yeah", go home and eat some ice cream.

most of the time he looks like the brain has already been damaged.

I need a ruling: would Sandstorm be considered "old school" nowadays?

He's dizzy just walking to the cage.

That face lift really worked wonders for Silva.

Yeah, now it's called "haboob."

Stann's tat on his left shoulder looks like a stylization of the word "pasta."

Agreed. He's working with 50 shades of grey matter.

it looks like a tattoo someone from Scranton would have.

IN one of these long winded intros I want to see Bruce Buffer break into a coughing fit.

Is that a tattoo of Stalin on Silva's right shoulder?

I didn't say that he was otherwise unlikeable, just that it's nice that we won't have to hear the usual shiat that accompanies a Stann vs. foreigner fight when it happens stateside.

I though he was done when Cro Cop split his wig.
