Randy is a god among men. That's about the long and the short of it. He shouldn't be in the Hall of Fame. No, he should have his own Hall of Randy.
I don't know what the hell is up with Babalu. Does he use his brain at all anymore?
Hughes returned to old form- good to see.
And so did Franklin, which will get him KO'd again against Silva.

I sucked ass in this one. I repped all who I can. Most of you get reps regularly from me anyway. Once it is available I'll hit you up.
I have a new respect for Randy, and he managed to keep it exciting throughout. Now if all wrestlers could follow his example.

Ideally, we'd all get swole on Rep points, then talk Size into talking Bobo into reestablishing neg repping, then we could blitz anyone stupid who showed up in OUR little corner of the world.
Expect to see Randy's head bobbing to avoid punches without excess hip flex to avoid knees and feet becoming a part of other fighter's arsenals. I'll bet Matt Hughes tries this with GSP, for example.
I love the little things - The look of pain and frustration on the Belching Cave Troll's face, priceless.

I have to say, the whole belching on camera thing was pretty lame, and I think it's one more reason I'm glad Tim got taken apart.

Couture timed Sylvia very well, why AA never did this was a mystery to me, Sylvia only really only throws a repeated two punch combo, left jab/ right cross and a ****ty pawing jab it is. He paws the jab, time a cross over the top, slip inside and hook him where he is slow.
The MMA guys, I've been saying this for a long time, seriously need to bring in some good K-1 trainers, this stuff should have been integrated a long time ago.

Poor Babalu, two fights lost in a row might be the kissoff from the UFC.
He was so close to taking out Lambert in the first, but the energy expenditure and end of round hits sapped him. It's too bad, I like the guy, and I don't think Lambert is all that.

I swear I just repped a whole bunch of people in here, in addition to those I repped a few days ago, and it still isn't letting me rep Rogue. What the fizzle?

I think it's once every tenth rep, and a limit of maybe five per day.
Everybody keeping hitting everybody.

I do not think the negative rep. points will return as it seems to encourage more immature activities. So, you(as do i) will just need to remember who you owe rep points to.
I read the Sylvia supposedly had a back injury that occurred a week before the fight that was severe enough that he considered pulling out. True or not, I have no clue, but I am glad he lost.
I did not see the fight but I read that Hamill's standup has not gotten any better. I just do not understand how this could be the case since he is training. It will be different to see him matched up against a good striker.

OK, I'm gonna rep all you guys. Here goes!
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Rogue Drone again.Shot my wad fellas, I'll do more when I get the chance. I got some of y'all, though!You have given out too much Reputation in the last 24 hours, try again later.

I'll be the first to admit it, neg repping with nasty comments was a silly fun way to rile people up,too easy, a few dropped anonymously and watch the recriminations fly, haha.....
I picked Hamill by KO, because I assumed he's a quick study who would emulate his mentor, Tito, I predicted a GNP TKO, not a standing one.
I figured that I would'nt get paid off for my 68 win, having just got hit from the 33 one, easier on all to spread the love, which was someone's comment on one of only two rep hits, so far.

I haven't weighed in with opinions too much, but you guys pretty much covered my thoughts.
What the hell is wrong with Babalu? I like the guy, too, but he just looked like ****. If you're gassed at the end of the round, circle away and catch your breath. He was attacking with crappy knees and kicks. Who squares off and steps in with a knee to the body...arms at the waist????????
I knew he was gonna lose in the opening exchange. He basically repeated what he did vs. Liddel. He chased with sloppy, wild punches until he got the takedown. I haven't watched it again yet, and I'm not sure that I want to, but even just watching it live it was very clear that he hadn't improved on his mistakes from fighting Chuck.
"The Athlete" is lucky he met a timid Franklin, b/c he kept trying the same weak setup he used with Leben: a weak right cross to a half-arsed single leg. If his next opponent is decent, I predict a brutal KO if he keeps with the same setup.

Thanks for the reps and welcome Alexander. You da man. I'll try and rep the rest after the time limit has expired.

But not ideal in MMA for several reasons. First off you are susceptible to takedowns. Secondily you are open to kicks especially a right roundhouse. And it would be pretty easy to get clinch and rain knees in as well.
Randy used boxing set up with the left low kick followed by the right overhand. After that he bobbed and weaved to avoid Tim's counter which was non existent. Problem with the low kick is it can leave you open to a straight counter which did in Ricco. And the bobbing and weaving could have been countered with knees but tim was too afraid of getting taken down. Overall a solid gameplan by Randy as he knew Tim was going to be too timid. I doubt this will work agianst Crocop but it'll be interesting to see how Randy approaches that fight.
