    I'm not sure what else you were expecting. Wandy probably knew that if he chased Chuck he'd get caught with an odd-angled back pedaling shot, leaving himself vulnerable. He waited for Chuck to engage and swung off. There were more good exchanges in that fight alone than in some UFC cards as a whole. I thought it was a great fight.


  2. 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.

    Wandi was too careful and not the hungry animal we saw in Pride. I think he had an opportunity but didn't capitalize on it. I didn't think much of the exchanges to be honest.

  5. 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.

    Wandy could have charged forward headfirst, guns blazing, or thrown overheads and gone for a clinch, both probably ending up in Wand being knocked out in the first. Chuck's punches were stunning Wand in those exchanges, clearer shots would have put him away. I'm personally glad he didn't just charge in, it made for a good battle.

    he should have taken the chance in my opinion. He might have been knocked out but he could have also had it the other way around. I think its better than getting smashed in those exchanges where is height is a disadvantage.

  8. 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...

  9. 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

    wandy needs to get back on the juice!!! you can tell he has not been doing it! just not the same fighter !!

    by the way gsp is a class act! the guy is just straight humble !

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

  12. 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.

  13. 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?

  14. wasnt this the best contest? haha ive been away from a comp for weeks, sorry fellahs. with that being said i still wont post the results so next time someone else make the damn contest!

  15. We usually do, so why the **** did you make this one?


  16. I haven't run a contest yet. Should I go back and do my pennance?

  17. 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.

  20. im sorry ill leave the contests to you guys. thanks Rouge for the backup

    sorry for calling you a makeup too haha

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

    No, it matters, he was basically telling us to eat sh*t, but what are you gonna do?

  24. Send Iron Mike over to eat his children?

    Send Tripdog and Chad over to DP his goats?

    I'm open to suggestions.

  25. 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.

  26. Way worse.

    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.

    ****er.

    You know I love you man. I agree, I knew it was bad news from the beginning as well. No clear rules were stated, no corrections to peoples uninformed incorrect picking. I hate to harp on it, but it kind of diminishes the excitement for future contests a bit, thanks a lot hilo boy.

  28. 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.

  29. Yeah, I wonder what Hawaii's record would've been had they played in the SEC? 5, maybe 6 losses?

    Actually I tried to tell some jackass that De Souza by KO was a stupid pick

    Think about what would have happened if Hawaii was being swarmed by the Huskers 112th ranked blackshirts every weekend

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

    Dude, I thought De Souza was gonna do Roan like he did Noah from TUF. That Noah/Maynard fight was great. I need to start telling some more of my Maynard like stories

    DeSouza needs to drop to 155. He looks small and soft for 170. He is a technically outstanding grappler and could do some damage, and he is a character. He calls his style Cholitsu. Cholo is potentially derogatory Peruvian slang for "Indian", as they say there. It is also a term of endearment, depending on the tone.

    BJ obviously respects him, so I don't think he is a chump.

  34. 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.

  35. 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.

  36. 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..

  37. 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.

  38. Exactly. Even BJ suffers from the stoner approach, only his ridiculous talent bails him out most of the time.

    That and Hawaiians have an aggressive attitude. Peruvians are extremely laid back, fun loving people who joke non-stop. That is the difference between a BJ and a DeSouza.
