Wow! The Spider knocks out the Ace again! Good show by Anderson Silva.
[Goldie voice]Aaand coming up next... Anderson Silva vs Dan Henderson[/Goldie] Please let it happen.
That was a great fight. Silva is just a beast. I'm pumped for UFC 79; Wanderlei Silva vs. Lidell (?), Hughes vs. Serra, Nog vs. Congo.
I hope Chuck knocks Wanderlei the f*** out!
that sounds like an exciting card!
Nogueira is set to fight Cheick Kongo? Talk about a mismatch! Kongo is gonna get submitted top team style.
Silva vs. Franklin
Seems like in tennis, there's so much talent out there, on any Sunday...
That was even more impressive than his first victory. Franklin just seemed completely caught off guard in the first fight, so you could almost rationalize it. Assuming he knew better this time around, and trained accordingly, it's amazing that Silva's second victory was arguably even more dominant even if it was longer. He looked like a dad goofing around with his kid, tapping him on the head, the stomach, the leg, Franklin always a step behind.
The Veira fight was disappointing. I expected more from him. I definitely don't see him as an elite heavyweight now. Silvia looked like a ****** out there. You could see he was thinking, about to throw a punch, or thinking about it at least, and then so slow to getting around to it frequently abandoning a strike or move halfway in because Brandon had already moved. Terrible. The Karlovic of MMA.
35, please don't insult Karlovic like that. Ivo's tennis is much better than Tim's mma.
i put 1k to win 500 on the spider. what easy cash that was
Want more easy cash? Pick Nog over Kongo if that fight is happening. That's even easier money in the bank.
Who are you guys talking about? What am I missing here?
It's a guy thing, CC.
Okay, I understand. Thanks, carry on.....
Yeah, Nog is amazing. Wikipedia says the fight is scheduled and it links to a UFC 79 Wiki site, but on that site it doesn't even have him listed as fighting. So I'm not sure, but I'd like to see it happen.
On the preview it said that Anderson Silva trains with the Nog twins. I can see how he got so good!
Nog v Kongo would be easy money, we've already seen Kongos ground game and he looks like a fish out of water. The Silva fight was awesome, I loved the epic dancing in the 2nd round. Sucks for Rich, all he got out of fighting Anderson is 2 broken noses.
Nog is not just a great grappler, but an excellent striker as well. IMHO, a slight edge to Nog over Kongo on the feet and a huge advantage to Nog on the ground.
Any of you guys sign up for the UFC fantasy league to make predictions on the fights? You make predictions on the winner, method of victory, round of win and minute of win and are awarded points accordingly. Its pretty cool and I got ranked 84 out of 14653 other fantasy players. Yay me.
Not to be c#$k, but considering how the past year's been, I could see a novice MMA fan really doing good with all the upsets and all. Better than people who "know" their MMA. It's been a crazy year.
Wow - I didn't know there were so many MMA fans on here. Silva's strikes are a joke. I am not sure anyone can hang with him. His fight with Chris Leben was an eye opener. He been rocked in fights before, but Silva smoked him. Silva is a closer, as soon as he sees your a little rocked, he grabs the back of your neck and punishes you.
On another note, Tim Silvia v. Branda Vera was the most boring fight I have ever seen in the UFC. Tim won that fight because of the last 30 seconds and because he rested his 260 lb. frame on Vera the entire fight. That fight sucked! And so does Joe Rogan for saying it was a great showing for Tim.
Even so, whats the big deal? Its only for fun. Also the ranking is on a per event basis, its not an accumulated total from previous events. Why dont you join? We can start a Talk Tennis UFC league.
