Lightweight GP 2nd Round Fight:
Shinya Aoki vs. Katsuhiko Nagata
Mirko CroCop vs. Ralek Gracie
Hideo Tokoro vs. Darren Uyenoyama
am i the only one that thinks Cro Cop vs a Gracie in a grappling contest isnt exactly the best idea?
Then in Lawler vs Smith, I have never seen a fight stoped due to a grazing eye poke like that, it was not that deep of a poke. Smith should have gotten his 5 minutes, that was shit, I think they obvioulsy were being overly cautious because it was on network tv and if that is the case move it back to cable and let the fighters fight.
The best fight of the night was the two women, I enjoyed that one. I also enjoyed Baroni getting knocked out, but again I think they stoped it maybe just a tad early, I would have liked to have seen the finishing shot.
Next time they need to speed things up a bit, an hour in all we had were two fights, at 1/2 an hour in, none, way to slow, and Shamrock needs to talk for himself and stop reading the teleprompter.
An open letter from Bret Rogers regarding Kimbo Slice and EXC
id really like to see this fight, but i doubt Gary Shaw wants to put his golden goose in any serious trouble
^^WTF? Wankers man.
But its obvious whats happening. They are trying to grow their company by cashing in on Kimbo's name. Its not about quality of fights or fighters at the moment. They just want people to tune in. You wait, there will be a new breed of noobs coming through talking about how amazing Kimbo is.
Remember when the UFC started getting more publicity... "Chuck is unbeatable, Rich is unbeatable, Arlovski is unbeatable"
the announcement on thurs from the UFC could concern 2 things i read about 1)Anderson Silva is fighting at 205 .....and 2)Floyd Mayweather is coming to UFC
now i just read these RUMORS...their not fact, not yet at least
the mayweather one is possible since mayweather did retire from boxing reccently and him and his management have been conversing with the UFC reccently as well
