Pride Open Weight GP, Part II

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. OTOH=on the other hand.

    I just watched it on Youtube, so the quality was horrendous, but it looked like in the final onslaught Fujita was getting pounded and was basically just trying to stand up and turn his back. I saw at least 3-4 soccer kicks to the head, but like I said, the quality sucked, so maybe they weren't all landing.


  2. Fujita is amazing. The amount of damage he can take is astounding. I want to see a Fujita vs Hunt.

    Definitely would love to see that fight. I'd have to go with Hunt. Fujita can take huge damage, but he can't dish out that much, except against Sapp.

  4. I'm not picking on Beowolf, just trying to make a joke about Fujita's ridiculous skull. I'm with you on Beowolf being a good non-TUF newb. These guys are few and far between so I'm glad he's into MMA and posting. Hunt does need some serious work on the ground. I don't understand why Cro-cop didn't take him down and pound him in there fight. I guess it was a macho thing, wanting to prove he's the better stand-up guy.

    Don't pick on Beowulf, Alexander, remember he's new to this, one of those good non-TUf noobs, poor guy is reliant on Youtube for the latest action.

    Beo, do you use P2P? if so, hit me with a PM at the same name at the Avant Forum , and I'll give you an invite to a private MMA/K-1/Boxing tracker with a closed membership that puts the full latest events up in DVD and Xvid just a few hours after they are shown.

    If you don't want it, maybe Alexander or Rodja will use it, but they are probably already hooked up.
    I have no idea what P2P is, but I'll definitely take the offer. Thanks, bro!

    Pick away, I like learning

    As for the beating Fujita took: was it the piss poor quality, or was he really getting hit that much? And does a ref actually take a fighters skull into consideration when calling a fight?

    The second question is a real question. Newb I am

    He was really getting hit that much, and then some. I think the ref does take into consideration a fighters history in regards to being able to take a beating. Fujita took about 10 shots that would have put anyone else out, with the exception of Hunt and Nog.

He should damn well try though if he wants to stay in MMA.
    I have seen Hunt throw a high kick to the head. I will try to find a fight clip for you.


    Hunt was dominated by Barnett. I wrongly anticipated Barnett standing with him as Barnett stood with Aleks for some time to trade. I assumed he would take that route again, smartly he did not. Once on the ground, Hunt was completely outclassed.

    Silva vs Fujita was a good fight. Silva came out with so much intensity, Fujita tried to match it but failed. The "stare down" before the fight was good.

    Crocp looked good as well using many more low kicks and picking Yoshida apart with punches. One thing that really impressed me was Crocop's ability to maintain balance when Yoshida had him locked up for a judo toss.

    Thanks, that's the only GP fight I didn't see online. For some reason, I don't see Nog winning it. I think Barnett might be a tough match for him. There is also a rumor that he only has about 20% vision in his right eye. Poor vision in right eye + a couple Crocop LHK = trouble even with Nogs iron chin. But then again Nog is a crafty SOB.

    Has Crocop used low kicks much before? I haven't seen all of his fights and some that I have seen were the edited versions on the Fox Sports Network show. It seems like he should use them more if not like Rizzo used to do.

    Does that offer also apply to one of the head honchos at the afforementioned company??
