    Ufc 80: Rapid Fire-01/19/2008


    Ok so I'm bored and figured I'd check out the fight card for UFC 80. Looks like a pretty decent card in my opinion. BJ Penn is always exciting to watch and he alone makes buying this worth it. Stevenson has proven he is a top contender in the LW division. We'll see how he does against someone as good as BJ. I'm also curious as to how Gonzaga will recover after losing to Couture. One of the better, more technical HW's I have seen. Marcus Davis is an explosive and powerful fighter on a 5 fight win streak. I'd like to see him whip some a$$. Honestly, I'm no expert and I only know a hand full of fighters. I just enjoy watching the skill and action of hand to hand combat. What do you all think?

    BJ Penn Vs. Joe Stevenson
    Gabriel Gonzaga Vs. Fabricio Werdum
    Jess Liaudin Vs. Marcus Davis
    Wilson Gouveia Vs. Jason Lambert
    Jorge Rivera Vs. Kendall Grove

    -Probably won't be shown-
    Antoni Hardonk Vs. Colin Robinson
    Paul Kelly Vs. Paul Taylor
    James Lee Vs. Alessio Sakara
    Per Eklund Vs. Sam Stout

    I really like the Stevenson/Penn matchup as BJ at 155 is a beast. Penn by TKO rd 2

    Penn will destroy Stevenson quick. GG is good enough to either KO or decision Werdum. Davis should be fighting top comp these days, ie a top 10er like maybe Diego or Karo. Gouveia-Lambert is very interesting. 2 solid fighters but neither a top 10er. Overall a weak card IMO, but could be exciting. I'm sure that I'll watch it.

    What he said, Stevenson has nothing to offer B.J.

    Except for 79, most of the recent cards have been really lackluster and disappointing. I would rather them combine 80 and 81 to make a real card.

    Probably right. Funny you say that because Spike is having a Fight Night four days later on the 23rd. Here is what the fight card looks like that day. Mostly a bunch of fighters from TUF.

    Mike Swick Vs. Josh Burkman
    Patrick Cote Vs. Drew McFedries
    Alvin Robinson Vs. Nate Diaz
    Michihiro Omigawa Vs. Thiago Tavares
    Alberto Crane Vs. Kurt Pellegrino
    Dennis Siver Vs. Gray Maynard
    Jeremy Stephens Vs. Cole Miller
    Joe Veres Vs. Cory Hill
    Justin Buchholz Vs. Matt Wiman

    x100, even 79 didnt prove to be that entertaining (didnt match the hype)

    Anyway, luckily enough restaurants buy these PPV's so Ill end up watching it just for the BJ Penn fight

    I've become a snob, though. I cannot stand most MMA fans...you know the ones that boo when the fight goes to the ground.

    lol. No sh!t right. I notice that too. ****ing idiots, what the hell are you booing at. I mean the fight can be more exciting when the fighters are standing toe to toe trading blows, but this is MMA, not boxing. It's just plain ignorance on the part of the "fans."

    Oh trust me I am not a Liddell fan by any means. I just think Joe Daddy has this one. BJ is an awsome fighter, but not my pic.

    Hey, just because I have posters, a lunch box, scratch n sniff stickers, limited edition trading cards, a lock of his hair, used autographed crotch guards, and DNA samples of his...that doesn't make me a fan.

    He did alot for the sport, I will hive him that.

    Obviously, as the cliche goes, everyone has a punchers chance, but I really don't see what Stevenson has that is going to bring him the win. Unless he just plain outworks Penn, which is possible, I don't see him winning. I highly doubt he'll submit him and I don't see him KO'ing him.
    I pick Penn by anything he chooses

    im pulling for joe daddy but it looks like bj has learned that the sport has evolved and he actually has to train now which is bad news for anyone he fights. joe is a tough, strong, young, hungry guy and im not counting him out of this fight.

    I agree, I'm not counting Joe out, I don't think he's going to be owned circa GSP vs Hughes, and I think he has a "chance" to win, but I do think BJ is going to pull of the W.

    I believe the fight time for Southern Californians starts at 12:00pm? Sounds a bit early, can anyone confirm that?

    It's in England, so that sounds about right.

    One would assume Penn should win, but the longer the fight goes, the better Joe's chances. I'd pick either an early sub by BJ, but more likey he'll win rounds 1 and 2, and lose the third. Penn 29-28

    It's a 5 rounder, Dance, since it's for the interim title as they have stripped Sherk for his positive test. That probably favors Daddy a little more, but I don't see him surviving.

    If you thought that Penn video was sweet check this one out! Penn dont play!

    Pretty weak card but I am going with
    Penn by Sub and GG by KO.

    I saw that in the video lol, he would really look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man at 240.

    I remember he fought Machida at 205 lbs but I dont think he ever fought at 240 lbs.

    The fight was at HW, and I believe Machida weighed 230, and BJ was about 200. Both of them were very chubby in that fight.

    Wrist is good, ankle is not. The doctor that looked at it may have been Corky from "life goes on". He says it is severely sprained and gave me a splint type thing. He says I probably won't be able to walk for 2-3 weeks, and 1.5 months for full recovery. I call BS. I'll be squatting or deadlifting within 10 days. It is a ****ing workout getting around though, especially since it just snowed here. Good thing 80 is on tomorrow night, something to look forward to.
