Personally I loved the Condit vs Hardy fight; what a KO by Condit!
The Pyle fight was great. Pyle's reverse triangle choke/crucifix was great.
So many Brits getting beat on their home turf...overall surprisingly good night of fights.
Yeah, like most UFCs of late.. Crazy boring.
Only the condit fight was decent.
Yeah, that Condit knockout was awesome. I loved watchin' the brits gettin their ass handed to them!!!
Think training's hard,. try losing!
I hear Condit wants the winner of the shields/kampman fight. Hopefully he gets the loser of the fight cuz I think he was robbed when he fought kampman and I wanna see a rematch. Shields will easily beat kampman.
Hardy apparently trained with Shaolin monks according to Joe and Mike. I'm sorry I find that hard to beleive in his fighting style. Unless he has totally lost the foundation I do not see any elements of powerful grounding in his style. The people I know are very heavily heavy Kung Fu styles you can not budge these guys for anything off their ground. Now I am not talking the guys who say they know Kung Fu. I am talking the guys who actually do know it. Which is probably less than 1%
In one of Hardy's earlier promo lead-ups to the GSP fight, they showed footage of him at a Shaolin Temple being trained when he was younger. Typical art-school rich-kid stuff. It's always the art school rich kids that wanna act like they're all punk and hardcore. You can spot them a mile away.
Jeff Monson, anyone?
way too many decisions as of lae. I am tired of these guys not gonig all out. You cant blame them if they are winning but sometimes I feel they could finish without risk. UFC has been teribly boring lately. Each has 1-2 good fights out of 9-11. Hardy K.O. was pretty crazy. I thought his chin was Iron.
Even is GSP loses to any WW I really think rematch he will win with determination and game plan. I only see him getting lazy or lucky punch/sub like matt serra.
I LOVE how Matt Hammil even makes fun of the dumb things that Tito says.
On the note of Shields, the fight is certainly interesting, though not from a competitive standpoint. It is interesting insofar as, stylistically, it will most likely force GSP to batter Shields on the feet ala Fitch.
Until GSP moves up, assuming he will, Fitch and Shields will be perennial contenders - which oddly enough ought to precipitate their collective move to 185, given their styles pose a more formidable challenge to A. Silva than GSP.
