UFC 82 Afterthoughts.
Kongo looked weak...i mean he did look like a big strong mofo but his game and aggression was just subpar. I thought he could have finished Herring on couple occasions. Herring tho, you gotta give it to him he is game. He was dissappointed it wasnt more of a slugfest. I love how he just asked Bud Light to sponsor him on a drinking tour lol.
I knew Silva would win and once they began exchanging i could already see him ending it by sub. I mean who is gonna KO Hendo anyway? Silva nuthugger right here!

First, Cecil Peoples needs to be fired. Second, I was sad for Tanner how he lost, but I hope he keeps it together. Finally, Silva is a beast; this is otherworldly dominance that is beyond even Fedor. I thought Hendo would be able to push him and eventually wear him out in the later rounds.M.Ed. Ex Phys

Nah, while my initial reaction was angry at Dean, the later views showed he was correct. Sakara pulled guard out of instinct but was out of it, most definitely.
I'm not sure who can beat Silva at MW, who is left?

Good fights last night. I'm super pissed we didn't get to see Arlovski.
It seems like nobody's gonna be a threat to Anderson for a while, maybe they need to bring in frank shamrock. He is the best fighter in the world ya know!

As far as Andy goes, I have no idea who is a real threat; Lindland might give him some trouble and I would like to see him against Okami again, but there isn't really anyone who is a threat

Also, I am glad that Coleman is coming back to the UFC, but he is about 5 years too late to have any impact. Lesnar is going to badly hurt him.

It was more of a fantasy allusion; if GSP were to beat all the fighters you mentioned, and Anderson continues like this, at that point it could be an interesting matchup.
Barring a self-psych-out, I think Penn is the only one who gives him honest trouble at WW. I don't think Fitch's wrestling will compete with GSP's, as, more or less, he is Matt Hughes invigorated, with some added stand up adeptness. I just don't think GSP is a good style matchup for Fitch, because GSP can do everything Fitch can do - just much better.
Penn though, that's another story (assuming he would remain that conditioned).

I'm not really sold on Fitch. He just doesn't seem that great and gets dangerously close to getting subbed a lot. Expect ownage if he fights GSP.
Okami looked good and I guess storyline wise he should be Anderson's next fight. Tanner took too much time off and started back against too tough of an opponent.
Leben still eats 8 shots on the chin and then eventually connects and wins. He'll still get beat often.
Kongo developed some nice takedowns, but doesn't have the ground skills to keep him there or do much. Heath looked good but I don't really expect much from him.
Anderson's the man. He had Dan hurt bad before he locked up the sub. Couture? **** that, Anderson-Fedor.
I like Hazelett. He may have lost, but he's got some great skills and is only 21. He'll be exciting in the future. Nice win for Kos, but he needs to stop throwing those ridiculous haymakers.

My sentiments exactly on Fitch; if GSP doesn't have a mental breakdown against Serra again, he would easily take that match.
Did anybody hear Fitch's comments on GSP? He said he's recently turned into a 'wrestler' because he's scared of the knockout and won't stand and trade. I think he fought Kos and Hughes the way he did to be more intelligent in the fight, he won both of those fights handily and very intelligently. Fitch said he's now going about things the 'hard way' by wrestling wrestlers. If what GSP did to Hughes and Kos was hard, I'd hate to see what easy is.

I was at a bar and didn't catch it all. I think GSP was a little afraid of Kos standup aggression at first. He seemed uncomfortable with it. He man handled Hughes though and had no reason to fear his standup so it doesn't make that much sense.

The group I was watching the fight with were rooting for Henderson, so I was psyched when Silva cut off his blood and O2 in the upper and lower extremities.
I love how classy and respectful Silva was at the end of the fight too, bowing to and showing resepct to Henderson and his entire entourage. That's the kind of stuff that makes MMA look good.

Jas, I recommend actually watching the event, it's better. I actually like Woogie for the most part. He's not Anderson classy, but he's a decent guy.

How about Machida-Anderson? I'd be interested in the striking in that one.
If Filho looks good against Chael, maybe they should give him to Anderson. I actually would love to see him get KTFO.
