Reminder UFN tonight on Spike
I didn't realize this was tonight so I thought I'd remind everyone.
I'll take Fisher in the main event.
Btw, should we do a UFC 72 contest?

I hate to be a party pooper, but I have very little interest in 72, or a contest for it. I would participate, but barely. I'm looking forward to watching Mcfedries fight, a slightly bigger Lawler, pure excitement. I say F the 72 contest and lets do one for the Showtime/Strikeforce/EliteXC/Total domination, I mean how many fuc*ing names are there. Either way that should be a good night of fights.

Oh man! I almost forgot! THANKS!
06-12-2007 07:45 PM
Thanks! I would have forgotten.

Skip 72 and just wait for 73. Strikeforce looks like a great card to do a contest with.

I agree with your sentiment about UFC 72. I would encourage people not to buy it to send a message to Dana and Co. not to put on ****ty cards. I may watch it at a bar, though, since they pay a fixed fee anyway.
Spencer looked pretty amazing last night. He's got some serious hand speed. Is it just me or is anyone else sick of Goldie and Rogan hyping one guy during a fight? Like after the first round when Stout had come back to some extent yet Fisher was still light years ahead according to them or in the AA-Werdum snoozefest that was a lot closer than Rogan and Goldie made it sound like.

I missed UFN last night mainly cause I really didn't want to watch it. I wanted to see Fisher/Stout though I heard it was a good fight.

I'm watching UFN right now, haven't even seen Stout/Fisher yet, and so far this seems to be one of the best cards of 07.
Tavares was awesome. I love these super well-rounded Fitch/Dracula was a tough one, and very impressive by both guys. Drew is a ****ing animal; that Bulgarian dude should have come in and shot immediately. The Reiner fight was the only one where it appeared that a solid fighter was fighting a chump. I don't know anything about Reiner, but I'm guessing he's a good grappler who had no idea what he was up against since the other guy took the fight on short notice.
I heard the main event was great. It's about to start.

Damn, Stout/Fisher was great too. I agree that Rogan and Goldie exaggerated Fisher's performance over Stout, but I think Fisher did look a lot better. Either Spencer's hands are quick, but not that heavy, or Stout has a cast-iron jaw.
Fisher definitely showed incredible striking versatility. The only time he was looking a bit weaker in that dept. was when he started throwing some overhands. The body kicks were sick, and he mixed it up with left and right kicks to the body and legs, and threw some great combos and elbows (don't know if they landed) in the pocket. Fisher was very impressive.
I hate to say it, but Spencer might have Lauzon's number.

Agreed. I love the fact that Spencer said it shouldve been a draw...uh...if you listened to Rogan the whole time you'd think Spencer whooped his ass with one hand behind his back.

Did you hear the impact the blows that Stout absorbed in the first round? They were HARD. I've seen Spec hit other people like that and they buckle.

I think the Louzon fight would be good, but Spec would win by KO/TKO if Louzon decides to stand with him.

Lol, Rogan does say that allot, but most of the time he is right or just the last performance he saw wasnt a good one.
06-13-2007 03:24 PM
Yeah, I tend to think Stout's jaw kept him in there, but, although Fisher has quite a few KO's on his record, I know some of them are from knees, not hands. Nonetheless, I think Stout has a stout jaw (damn I'm corny).

oh no doubt Stout's jaw was a *ahem* quite enduring. We will see in three years after taking those type of shots if he still is as pretty. lol
Agreed. Overall, great style match up. Edge to spec with experience too.

I give all the credit to the LW's last night, but it really made me realize how dominant Sherk is going to be at 155
06-13-2007 07:02 PM
Unfortunately I think you're right. Sorry SS, Sherk just doesn't do it for me.

Honestly, I haven't seen enough of Sherk to have a real sense of how good he is. However, one thing that may cause him problems is the high level of BJJ that appears to be coming into the UFC lately. I don't know who all these guys are, so I can't be overly specific, but since it is fresh from last night: Tavares appears very strong, highly composed, dangerous standing, from the top, and from his back. Guys like this could cause probs for the wee midget. Does anyone have a sense of Sherk's choke defense????
There are these others, like Gleison Tibau, and several others. I think they're mostly lighter, but some of them are WWs, so I'm not sure.
