    The only way I could be more shocked by something is if Ralph Maccio would reprise his role as the Karate Kid, fight Fedor and crane kicks him for the KO.

    Unreal what's going on this year.

    Very much so; the favored boxer usually wins. Between the politics, arranged outcomes, and the fact that there is very little 'puncher's chance', boxing is very much a show, whereas MMA is more of an actual competition.

    I do like a good display of the sweet science but I prefer the suspense of MMA.

    I just woke up hung over after this crazy dream that Crocop got KO'd by a HK, and then I got on hear and drunken-babbled.

    It was not a dream friend, was not a dream at all.

    Here's what actually happened. Dana hired Chuck to fly in there and poke Cro Cop in the eye before he got KO'd. Heres the proof.

    Edit: Its Back!


    I dont even consider anyone an underdog against an elite fighter any more, esp Rampage vs Chuck. But Chucks blazing fast eye poking speed shows maybe he has super powers.

    Good point.

    So it could go Rampage by flying windmill kick, Rampage by stank breath, or Chuck via Three Stooges-style eye poke.

    CroCop looked very dissapointed at the end there when Rogaine was talking to him. Nasty landing that guy took...lets hope he isnt CroCrap now.

    Well there is an upside to all these upsets. We know that they aren't throwing fights (don king effect)in the ufc yet. I know there is no way crocop would have taken a kick like that on purpose, it could have broke his friggin neck!

    Theres thruth to that on some degree, I thought that Arlovski and Werdum fight was pretty equally matched, but there have been some creampuff fights.

    I'm surprised nobody has mentioned the machida fight. He looked really good, though he used his usual boring style for the first two rounds. Round three though, wow. He looked fantastic. He actually tried to finish the fight! Right now there's no way they'll give him a title shot because he's just not that exciting to watch, but if he can finish his next fight I think Dana will give him a go at it.

    Did you watch the fight elsewhere? It wasn't shown on Spike.

    I have not seen this fight but in the past Machida was very smooth. His style is unique in that he seems able to score many shots without taking many in return. He definitely needs to start finishing fights.

    I think Gonzaga is a talented guy and will be in the top 15 to 20 or so for a while. I worried Mirko might have trouble with him on the ground (def. didn't see the head kick comimg), but Mirko is a favorite of mine and I worry before any of them fight. He probably deserves more respect than people are giving him. His gameplan was great and sacrificed a no doubt painful mid kick to get the takedown and pound Mirko with elbows for 3 minutes. Mirko's usually impenetrable defense may have been weakened by this punishment. He looked out of the fight when he started eating elbows. Although, to some extent he looked out of the fight when Gonzaga didn't just stand there and take punishment.

    I don't know where that lightning quick straight left was that punished Silva so much.

    Dana's gotta be pissed. Investing huge sums of cash in Mirko and Heath Herring to them both get destroyed/look like crap. Machida hasn't been much of a draw either. Werdum wasn't so impressive. Rampage is his last hope, well maybe Nog too.
