WEC to merge with the UFC

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. This is random but.... :P
    The one thing I'll miss most once the brand WEC is dissolved would be stephan bonnar's fight commentary. Pretty impressive during the last couple of events.

    I laughed at this after Faber looked to lose absolutely no speed nor power against Mizugaki, choking him out rather easily.

    I guess most people didn't know that Urijah cut practically no weight at 145 and he was much leaner against Mizugaki than he has been in the past. He talked about moving to 135 when he was still champ because of the emerging talent and their extra size.

  4. Exactly.

    This was not a cut made out of desperation, but one made because both the opportunities at 135lbs and the money invested in those opportunities are now equally as attractive to both at 145lbs.

    145lbs was never his most appropriate weight, but the weight that afforded him the most appropriate opportunities. Now that these opportunities have been equalized, he has incentive to compete at a more appropriate weight - I expect him to do well there.

  5. FABER vs. BJ penn

    Urijah tried LW once and it didn't end well for him. He was KO'd by Tyson Griffin back in '05.

    I think, and this is pure speculation, that they used the "aggression" criteria as a factor for each round. The fact is that aggression is one of the lowest ranked criterion for each round, but so many people have been using it to justify their decisions. It's a very cloudy and ambiguous criterion and either needs to be amended for clarification or abolished altogether.

    I guess I could see that if that is what the judges want to claim they put weight in. But running at someone and getting smacked in the face shouldnt win u a fight. I wasnt happy when Garcia won against Jung, but this one is just absurd.

  17. i loved how joe rogan was ripping the judges throughout the rest of the night.

    ufc has the 2 greatest announcers.

    Haha I must admit it was funny to hear. Mike Goldberg just ignored Joe's comments about it all

    If you really think that Goldberg is a quality announcer, then you haven't been paying attention. He's absolutely awful in every sense of the word. He once said that Travis Lutter was Jordan-esque with his BJJ...enough said.

    Did you happen to see Doc Hamilton's proposal for rule changes to the CSAC? It would purportedly add effective damage (as the first criteria), a criteria for attempted submissions, and half point rounds.

    Yes, and I must say that I love the proposal. There's an established criteria and a parameter for the half-point rounds.
