Well, as long as my stream lasts, I'll post my thoughts. Once Zuffa catches me, I'll just post play-by-plays from MMAWeekly.

First up: Antonio "Love Me, Chuck!" Banuelos vs. Scott "Stop Staring at My Freaky Skin" Jorgensen

MAN! What a heck of a first round!!! Antonio rocked him with that hook, but then Scott almost wrapped up that arm! Not sure who to score that one for right now, but it was awesome!

VCURamFan
04-25-2010, 02:24 AM
Did Jorgensen ever turn it around this round! He completely took over & controlled everything. I prolly would have given Antonio the slight edge in Rnd 1, but Scott easily dominated Rnd 2.

VCURamFan
04-25-2010, 02:31 AM
Fantastic. Jorgensen easily won that fight, hands down, but Antonio never gave up, even when the choke was in. Even when Scott switched off for the armbar, Antonio still rolled out of it & started looking to GnP with only 3-4sec left!

It's 1 part my natural humor & 3 parts malnutrition. Over the last 36hrs, I've had 1 bowl of applesauce, 1 jello cup, 1 PBJ sandwhich, 1 piece of toast, & 7 chicken nuggets. O & I threw up the first half of that list at about 11:30 last night. :sick:

But hey, now I get to illegally watch people assault each other. :happydancing:

Roller just ran a clinic on Nja#*@&%(. Man, Anthony really needs to work on his grappling if he expects to go anywhere near the title.

Ahhh-Hahahaha! Jake Shields & Dana, arm-in-arm! :happydancing:

Next up: Mike "That Guy That Beat Urijah" Brown vs Manny "Do You F#%$ing Know Who My Cousin Is, Bro?" Gamburyan

VCURamFan

BANG, KNOCK-OUT, OVER! :punch:

Manny landed a nice short right as Mike was on his way in. Powerful punch!

Not that I don't like Mike Brown but he reminds me too much of the Green River serial killer. :unsure-1:

I am, now. I'm able to hold the food down & am hoping that a good night's rest & a good breakfast will have me right as rain.

Seriously, these first 3 fights are gonna be hard to beat for FotN, KOotN & SotN. Fantastic!

Now, here's hoping that at least one of these title fights will be over before my internet shuts off at midnight!

WOW! I'm really impressed with Pickett's ability to time his takedowns & also Johnson's ability to get back up to his feet. Great first round!!

VCURamFan
04-25-2010, 03:12 AM
ANOTHER fantastic round! I have yet to be bored by any of the rounds so far tonight! :happydancing:

I give Picket the first 2 rnds, btw.

VCURamFan
04-25-2010, 03:18 AM
Pickett gets Rnd 3, too, but I was impressed by a coupla Johnson's takedowns. Really a lot of fun to watch!

I'm pretty sure that every single fight, pre-lim or otherwise, was televised last night, & all of them were amazing!

'Cause that's how my Dad has our router set up. Between my brother just hitting high school & me tending to "waste" (his words, not mine!) a ton of time on here, Dad decided to put a curfew on the intra-webs. The router shuts off between midnight & 6am. Kinda forces me to get a good night's rest, especially before church! :laugh:

Yeah. I'd rather make the short-term trade of missing the last half of a title fight which I can download later for the long-term benefit of having good sleep habits.

I agree with Ben. Garcia/Jung was great, but it was just an all out slugfest. Pickett/Johnson was a technical masterpiece from both fighters - To quote Dana, I was blown away by that fight. Johnson is such an exciting fighter and some of his combinations were pure poetry, but when he went for that jumping knee and Pickett countered it with a mid-air takedown....I flew out of my nice comfy seat! Insane! And how did Johnson not get knocked out by that spinebuster takedown by Pickett? Nasty! That fight was one of the best I've ever seen.

I knew nothing about them before this fight. When I saw the Union Jack on Pickett's shorts I assumed it was another Marcus Davis making claims about being British via his great grandma's grandma to try and get a few extra fans.

Thanks for clearing that up though!

Cage Rage was s***. I'd never heard of Bisping until TUF my friend!

Who's Beeej?

Not meaning to sound nasty Dave but I don't watch any prediction video's, they are for the types of people who feel the need to log on to facebook when they are considering eating a biscuit or taking a dump.

Cage Rage wasnt that bad on TV...but it wasnt so good to visit...I know, I went to one of their last....See my video below :ninja:

Predictions videos are made a lot by Americans, infact, I only know two regular British Video Bloggers for MMA...and its nothing of the sort with facebook...its about connecting with others who like doing it...and seeing who gets the most right...a bit like...being on this Forum...its a community...course its only really open to those who can actually be arsed to make and upload the videos in the first place

I have to respectfully disagree; it was hardly "just a slugfest".

*yawn*

Glad I didn't buy this event.
I thought the Korean Zombie was ROBBED, I don't see how Garcia won a single round.

HORRIBLE judging imo.
Aldo looked pretty sharp, I wish he was a 155er.
