That was an unbelievable fight. Le should be somewhere around #10 after that fight. Frank wasn't ranked in the top 10, but that's still a big win. Lawler/Le would be an amazing fight, not sure who I'd pick.
Mike Kyle got submitted by the worst armbar I've ever seen. The rest of the card was pretty entertaining.

I'm glad Kyle got subbed and hope he never fights again.
Le/Shamrock was an exciting fight but too much showboating for my liking. If there's a rematch, I think Frank will maul him and won't mess around. I was impressed by Frank's chin as he took some good shots and had Cung hurt near the minute mark of round 3.

Yeah, the showboating was excessive, it loses it's meaning when done to that extent. I though Frank was gonna finish Le when he had him hurt near the end of the 3rd. Whatever, that was a great fight.

FYI: DON'T PUT SPOILERS IN THE TITLE!
I already saw the fight, but some people probably didn't, and don't want the results yet.
I think Frank could have won if he pressed the TD. He even had Cung in trouble at one point standing.
Great fight for both guys. It was only a matter of time before Frank's arm would break after defending all those takedowns. Perhaps the most underappreciated aspects of mma is the pain of defending strikes.
Fickett's guillotine was nasty. Did you note how he wrapped up the right arm? That was a terrible position for the Korean; solid showing for Drew. I don't know why, but I always find myself rooting for him.

Fickett is supposedly a whack job, but an amusing one. He definitely seems like a good guy. Did anyone hear about the big fiasco he was involved in at NAGA? I forget the details, but you can probably find it at the Underground.

Damn, I was hoping CNorris was a shamrock fan...
I like Le also.. but I won't admit that I have something in common with CNorris.

Frank needs to start going or the kill when he has someone hurt. He landed that right in th ethird and should have immediately pounced on him. He let Baroni hang around too.
Le won all 3 rounds IMO. He's defintely got good standup and those kicks are tough to deal with it if you don't have to worry about the takedown.
What's up with fighters not catering to their strengths?
Jensen got KOed in nasty fashion
Holy shyt Davidson might win....

Cung's ground game is still a question mark.
Damn, Kansas is pulling it out.

Yeah, I guess I made it sound like Frank did everything wrong rather than Cung being elusive. He was for sure. I think Joey V - Cung would be a good test for him. Villa would probably try to GnP him so it would answer more questions. Ninja or Lawler or Hose would also make or some good fights. Anderson would destroy him in the standup, though.

Too much showboating indeed from Shamrock and even Cung Le at times too. But Frank should have went to the ground after round 2 since it was apparant that Cung Le was winning and I suspect Shamrock would have won if he had done so. If his arm had not been broken his chances of winning the standup were imminent too. But Le was the better man and I was certainly impressed by his powerfull and accurate kicks.
He's got a long list of experienced fighters to go through yet but more so, different styles to deal with, in his early career. I hope he does good.
I'd put him in against a pure wrestler next.

Eso means "that", meaning the takedowns you referred to. Sorry, it just went of in my head.
I don't know if Anderson would necessarily own Cung Le in the standup, but he is definitely a better MMAist.
The showboating was definitely over the top, but I loved how Frank was all smiles and swagger until Cung caught his kick and swept the leg (a la Johnny! to Ralph Macchio). The smile disappeared, and never returned.

I'm going to make a confession, but it's a confession related to this thread. My name is Samuel and yes I watched Never Back Down. Anyhoo, I swear the attitude of the antagonist in that movie was based on Frank Shamrock. Conceded, show-boaty, and full of condenscending smirks and crazy tongue wagging behavior.

Volcom, your log is going to have to wait. I appreciate the confession, but a 1 week ban is necessary. However, if you can get 2 other people to admit to watching it the ban will be lifted. Thanks.

I checked out your log. Nice work. What are you looking to get down to?
04-01-2008, 03:39 PM
I was 197lbs 12% bf before I bulked up to 230lbs, so I'm thinking 205lbs would be a good lean size for me. I'm hoping of the 33lbs I added to my frame, 5-7lbs of it was LBM.
and thanks for checking it out.

That would be awesome if you could keep all your strength while dropping to 205. How is your back holding up?
04-01-2008, 04:28 PM
Not so good. It only prevents me from doing three exercises really, but they're major exercises, Deads, Heavy Rows and Smith One Arm Barbell Rows, which means I'll have to gauge my back strength primarily on weighted pull ups and hammer machines and that's a bit bootleg, but oh well. I love deads too.
Hitting 315lbs 5 times is the best I've performed on chest so far, and that's the other major indicator of strength I have, so it's not so bad.
I've had a slip disc with a pinched sciatic nerve before, which equates to walking around like a 90 yr old, a sharp pain that makes your eyes unwillingly water and lasts for about 45 sec to a 1 min each time you get out the car or up off a chair and literally rolling off my bed like a crippled old man. My current back strain doesn't debilitate real life, just some aspects at the gym, and I can live with that. Compared to what I've had to deal with in the past, this back problem is not even a deal, but thanks for asking.
Things could be better, but things have been much worse, so it's cool.
