It's only a 10-fight card instead of the usual 12-13 for UFC events.  It's fairly heavy on female fights, with all the uninjured ladies from the season fighting.  Because it's a short card, there's only one fight in the early prelims.

Nate Diaz is still fighting in the UFC? Last I heard he was promoting small MMA fights in California, figured he'd gotten out of the fight game himself.

No Arrianny and Brittany this time.  We have the second-string octagon girls.  Still hot though.

The lighting was really bad on this one, but Royce Gracie and Meisha Tate were about 8 rows in front of me.

That's his brother Nick.  Nick is officially still on the UFC roster, but says he's retired.

Got it, thanks.

OK, sorry to flood this thing with pictures, but after the weigh-ins, I went to Tuff N Nuff, which was a local amateur promotion in Vegas.  The main event featured Marina Shafir, a Ronda protege who was one of the coaches on Team Rousey and a bit of a prospect herself.  Rumor is that she might be going pro soon and that this could have been her last amateur fight.  Based on what I saw, she's a monster.  Granted, her opponent wasn't great, but Shafir ate a coup[le big shots with no visible reaction, then locked in a tight standing head-and-arm choke, used that to slam her opponent to the mat, and continued the choke there.  The other girl was out cold pretty fast.

I didn't get a good picture of Marina, but these were her corner-women, Shayna Baszler and Jessamyn Duke.

In one of the earlier fights, a guy got slammed and broke his leg.  It was nasty: a compound fracture (that's when the broken bone is sticking out through the skin).  The ringside physicians jumped in fast.  Not a great picture, but here's one of them applying traction to the leg while waiting for the stretcher to take the guy out of the cage.

i13.photobucket.com
That caused a delay, since they couldn't restart the fights until the ambulance returned from taking the guy to the hospital.  They killed some time by calling up Randy Couture from the audience and doing an impromptu interview.  Maybe it's because it was Vegas, or maybe it's the Rousey connection with Marina Shafir, but there were a lot of familar faces there.  I saw Robert Drysdale, Skyscrape and Punkass from Tapout, Dr. De Mars (Ronda's mom), Roxanne Modaferri and a few others.

OK.  Lastly, something specially for Testiclaw.


I happened to notice someone across the other side of the cage, there as a spectator and not a referee.

I didn't go up and bother any of the other MMA folks, but Kimmie is special, so.....

 I'm the old disheveled guy.  The Kim Winslow in blue is KIMMIE!!! Oh, and she's pretty darn tall.  Since she wasn't in her ref shoes, I assume she was wearing at least moderate heels.  I'm 6'2", so even with heels, she must be close to 6 feet tall.

Jesus. Maynard looks like he'll get beat up from another timezone.

Kimme prolly loves having her pic taken with old disheveled guys. Makes her look better.

Yeah. Maynard is a big lightweight, so he must cut a lot of weight. Looks like death at the weigh-ins, but he'll be huge today.

Great pictures psychicdeath!  I'm jealous, wish I was watching it live as well

Making picks on my phone was a pain in the ass. Enjoy the fights tonight.

I don't know of she'll win but I'm rooting for Roxanne Modafferi.  She's got to be the most likeable mma fighter on earth.

Gotta' root for Dober and the MAMA's boys and gotta root against the lesser Diaz

I saw her scooting around the place at Tuff N Nuff last night. Always had a permanent smile on her face. Happiest person I think I've ever seen.
 
2013-11-30 03:51:03 PM  
Well, I guess I better start getting ready. Gotta drop by the sports book and place a few bets, and then grab something to eat before the fights. I won't be able to comment much from there, but hopefully I'll get some pics to post afterwards.
 
2013-11-30 04:45:01 PM  
Hahaha Testiclaw is going to be so jealous. Nice photos psychicdeath99.

I originally meant to but I didn't watch any of this season of TUF. So I really didn't know who to pick on a lot of these. It is kinda a lame looking card, on paper. But I think it should be better than it looks. The ladies always deliver.

Her boob is on your shirt!

Dammit, you're farking lucky!

Well, I'm here. Sitting in the first row of the stands behind the red corner. Straight out from the bottom and left of the NOS logo.

Oh, and Kimmie is in da house. Also Mario, Yves, and Copeland.

I think from now on if a Fark MMA thread regular is at a show they need to be carrying a Team TapFlictionBro sign.  Or maybe we could do up a design and get some shirts made.

I see one in TF, admins haven't looked at it yet.
 
2013-11-30 07:53:35 PM  
Not Copeland. The other ref that looks a bit like him, but less steroidal.
 
2013-11-30 08:00:54 PM  
Meh.. too late to make picks.. can still pull for one of my favorite fighters though: anyone who punches a Diaz in the mouf.

That's strange, he's one of my favorites too.
 
2013-11-30 08:22:19 PM  
So none of the other guys from TUF got a shot on this card, even on the prelims? I guess Chris Beal's the only one of them I'd want to see.
 
2013-11-30 08:22:29 PM  
Does Dover just have a great chin, or is the other guy just a weak puncher?
 
2013-11-30 08:30:22 PM  
I missed the picks today too. Hell, I forgot there was a show tonight until it had already started. Oh well, should be fun.

bit of both.

I predict a very slow third round, and lots of hugging.

What do I win?

A five minute nap.

Is ugly a good enough word for that round?
 
2013-11-30 08:59:03 PM  
Chalk one up for the fat ginger.  I look forward to yawning through another one of his fights real soon.
 
2013-11-30 09:02:03 PM  
I think they matched these guys up just for their ridiculous names.
 
2013-11-30 09:02:53 PM  
That helped. I bet three parlays and Rosholt was in all of them. That first round had me worried.
 
2013-11-30 09:05:28 PM  
I'm gonna miss 168 due to holiday travel.  I'm hoping Tate wins because I've got really, REALLY tired of Rouseys "Lady Diaz" routine.

/of course I'm betting on Rousey, you think I'm nuts?
 
2013-11-30 09:13:52 PM  
Taking down the Brazilian...

I don't believe you thought your cunning plan all the way through...
 
2013-11-30 09:14:33 PM  
This fight is awesome.
 
2013-11-30 09:17:06 PM  
Finland did good the first round, but he'd be crazy to play with fire like that again.
 
2013-11-30 09:28:56 PM  
Gotta give him credit, the Finn out-Brazilian'd the Brazilian.
 
2013-11-30 09:33:16 PM  
Excellent fight, but what's up with the split decision?  Is Cecil Peoples in the house?
