I wanna see Brock get beat too but i don't think it will be on ppv here
Wandy's sun is setting; he's already handed the proverbial reins over to Shogun in print a number of times.
On a side note, did anyone watch the Sakuraba/Royce fight? Did the judges? Aparently we were watching two different things; a unanimous nod for Gracie was complete garbage. I had it 2-1 for Sakuraba....seemed like anyone else who cared to comment did too. Politics
Royce's sun set years ago. The fact that they would swing a bogus decision(aside from the obvious financial reasons, of course) just reeks of ignorance to me. Royce was amazing.....up through '94. 2000 was a shining moment for him, but he completely failed to capitalize on it.
I just wish Kazushi had the same drive Matt Hughes did against Royce; despite Gracie's tendency to draw out a fight, Matt had none of it. Oh well
Hero's kept Sakuraba fighting way too much as is, and I know it's taken a toll. He's been in the ring once every three months or so for nearly the last two years; that's insane. One man can't carry an organization, not in MMA.
i doubt Cro Cop will underestimate again, espicially since Kongo is an accomplished kickboxer
as for Serra/Hughes, i don't see Serra being able to get past Hughes, i don't think it'll be a one sided fight though, i think Hughes will just revert to his wrestling and lay n pray his way to a decision or something simular
I for one didn't see Serra even hanging with Rush though, let alone TKO'ing him in the first round. Rush, Jardine, Salmon, Forrest, Liddell....upsets are nearly commonplace nowadays.
Hughes has decent hands, but they tend to be slow. If Serra does bring his A game, I could see him picking up the duke. He definitely has the motivation in place; he doesn't like Hughes at all, and each fight of his is still a make-or-break contest. He's fighting another slide into obscurity, and that's a good kick in the butt if there ever was one. His BJJ is quite excellent, and as such I doubt Hughes will be able to steal another fight on lay and pray alone as he did with Lytle
have you guys talked about the Tommy Morrison fiasco yet?
I was reading about it on Sherdog. What a fuckin joke. An unsanctioned "MMA" fight on an Indian reservation, and the rules were changed to boxing rules 30 minutes before the fight. And they still aren't sure if Tommy has HIV or not, because he didn't have to take any kind of blood test before the fight.
