It was definitely a great fight. Honestly I didn't see it going all 3 rounds, but it was a good 3 rounds. I only saw it going 1, with someone getting knocked cold. I'm glad Chuck won, but I'm not taking anything away from Wandy. He is one of the best. I hope there is a rematch.

I thought the Wand VS Liddell was one of the best matches I have seen in the UFC.
GSP was unreal, that guy is so zoned into the art of fighting its rediculous.
Liddell is still one of my favorite fighters of all time, I think he has a great chance to beat anyone they put infront of him in the cage.
Yes even Quinton, regardless of how counter-style Quinton is to Liddell, Liddell is just a fierce natural fighter. He can pull off some amazing, out-of-nowhere knockout punches.
And they aren't "lucky" he trains for those weird-angle back-pedaling knockout hits.

First off i dont know how any one can say that the Chuck Silva fight was a disapointment..It was an exciting round for round exchange and chuck clearly dominated.. Silva can definitly take a punch but he did not have an upper hand a single round.. As for the # 1 contender for 205, have you all forgot about forest griffen? He has a guarenteed tittle shot after the next season of the TUF show. I thing alot of the Pride fighters are having trouble in the cage,(crokop,Silva,Shogun,ect) I have yet to be impressed.. I also feel that Chuck is beeing counted out too soon..He is a world class fighter that had two bad fights,I think this win will turn things around for him...

teh Cuck/Wandy fight was one of the best I have seen, and I have been wathing since UFC1. With that said, I would have liked to see more out of Wandy, but I think that Chuck's game plan was better and it showed

This was a great picks contest. 4 days later and the guy still hasn't given the results.

GSP fukcin "owned" Hughes!! I thought Chuck did a smart thing by playing the standup game with Wandi. Liddell had the reach to just keep pumping those jabs, and score. Fedor got the easy win on Hong Man Choi last night.

Just watched the Irvin/Cane fight. What was the final verdict on that injury? Was it a fractured orbital or was he just knocked stupid?

01-04-2008, 08:45 PM

01-04-2008, 09:31 PM
I haven't run a contest yet. Should I go back and do my pennance?

You get a free pass, due to your "semi-hiatus" status.

GSP won at Rd 2 :06 left, 4:54 in - y'all decide who won between the two ties.
I propose to the group that Pistonpump be banned from all future play and if he starts another contest, ignored and someone else puts one up, he sure as hell is out of any contest I run.
01-04-2008, 10:01 PM
im sorry ill leave the contests to you guys. thanks Rouge for the backup
sorry for calling you a makeup too haha
01-04-2008, 10:10 PM
Thanks Rogue. I say we let Piston play, but if he ever wins we'll say it doesn't count At least he had a good attitude after you ripped him.
01-04-2008, 10:25 PM
Yeah, but he would have left 15 players hanging for how long, forever? without seeming a care if I hadn't stepped up.
Whatever, doesn't really matter.

Send Iron Mike over to eat his children?
Send Tripdog and Chad over to DP his goats?
I'm open to suggestions.
01-04-2008, 10:55 PM
Those are some good suggestions.
Iron Mike could also "eat his a**hole alive, and **** him til he loves him, ***got", praise be to allah!
We could have Mullet perform his slampoetry, which is probably far worse than any of the aforementioned punishments.
01-04-2008, 11:20 PM
Yeah, no offense to PP, but I knew this **** was Bad News Bears from jumpstreet. From now on, all contests will be conducted as per usual. This one was also started a month early.

How 'bout dem Dogs; PP?
Talk about a Brutal Beating - Georgia thrashed Hawaii to a bloody pulp, complete total domination and I throughly enjoyed every minute of it.
01-04-2008, 11:54 PM
Yeah, I wonder what Hawaii's record would've been had they played in the SEC? 5, maybe 6 losses?

I did horrible this contest. Should have researched the fighters a little bit more.

BJ obviously respects him, so I don't think he is a chump.
01-05-2008, 11:16 PM
Yup, he certainly doesn't carry a lot of muscle on his frame. I think he's pretty tall, maybe 5'11", but you're right, lose the flab and fight at 155.
01-05-2008, 11:38 PM
You can watch his fight here: http://www.dailymotion.com/relevance...za-ufc-7_sport
It looked like a crappy stoppage. He took a few shots, but didn't seem overwhelmed at all, and he got right up after. He definitely displayed some skills in Rd. 1. That armbar attempt was nice.
He also seems too relaxed. Peru has a huge surf culture, and you can see how he would fit right in with that. Now that he's in Hawaii, I'm sure it's not much different.
01-05-2008, 11:58 PM
Damn, Desouza is listed at 6'1" with a 70.5" reach, and Carneiro 5'9" with a 76" reach, pretty crazy reach. I think it was a good stoppage, seemed like he wasn't going to do anything to improve his position. I think you're right, Desouza is too laid back, never has any urgency even when he's in horrible positions. I do like the caveman look Desouza has, as that is what I'm currently sporting, as Jas knows, it's not a favorite among the ladies..

The laid back approach is great for straight grappling. A lot of guys (like Eddie Bravo and Joe Rogan) claim grappling high can work very well, and just having that relaxed attitude opens up a lot of openings, but if you're getting punched in the face you need some explosiveness.
01-06-2008, 12:23 AM
Exactly. Even BJ suffers from the stoner approach, only his ridiculous talent bails him out most of the time.
