Default BLOG: UFC 100 Recap

From Matt's blog:

Quote:
Well, the fights went a lot like I thought they would. I knew Dan Henderson would try and stalk him down with that big right hand and it was just a matter of time before he was going to figure out the range. Now that I see Bisping is okay, I can say that I liked the ending to that fight the best. Dan usually doesn't have much to say and you could tell after the fight that Michael had gotten under his skin. With the first big right hand Dan said "good night." With the second, after Michael was on the ground, he said "sleep tight." Dan is a friend of mine and we're a lot more alike than Michael Bisping and I.

I would have to say the GSP/Alves fight was the most boring fight to watch. Not trying to say that in a bad way, just compared to every other fight, it was the least exciting. However, GSP does do such a good job of transitioning from his striking to his takedowns.

After I watched the weigh-ins, I knew Frank Mir was going to have some problems. It looks as though he cut weight and tried to get as fit as he could. I think that he didn't have the strength to even compete with Brock. Brock is a good friend of mine, I'm glad to see him win and a lot of people don't realize that he is a very intense person. He did go a little over the top after the fight, but I found some of his comments amusing. Brock's a good guy, he just got caught up in the heat of the moment. Like everyone he will get beat, but right now it seems like the UFC will have to put in two guys at once to beat him.

Here is a video of Jens' wedding from 4th of July weekend. As I've already said, I had a great time up there and saw some friends that I haven't seen in a long time:

Finally, this is a hunt that I'm getting ready to go on next month. If anyone wants to sign up here's the information:

Beautiful unique wedding. Their baby is adorable.


As to the fights, my favorite was Henderson/Bisping; good way to put it "good night and sleep tight"!

As to Brock, well, you know him, if you say he's a good guy, I'll take your word for it. If I had to go by how he acted after the fight...

The only thing I disagree with Matt about is the GSP/Alves fight: I think that Fitch/Thiago was less exciting, simply because it was a more technical battle. Other than that, I approve of Matt's blog!

Default UFC100

What an awesome weekend, great Expo, great fights!!!!

The highlight of my night was the KO of Bisping
Hendo said he would shut him up with his fist
I would have to say, "Mission Accomplished!"
The entire arena stood to their feet and was cheering so loud
That will be on Ultimate Knockouts for sure
Loved it, and Loved his comment!

GSP is a very well rounded fighter
But he doesnt seem to finish fights
BJ quit, 5 rounds with Fitch and Thiago......
So, I agree with Matt, It was my least fav fight of the night

As far as Brock, I personally dont care for his attitude
He is disrespectful as he flipped the whole arena off
I know he comes from the fake wrestling, but kids do look up to him
It shows his true colors, I feel he is all about himself, cocky & greedy
Just my opinion!

All in all......Vegas/fights/expo..........what more could you ask for?
Got to wear my new Hughes 9 shirt & new octagon necklace!
I enjoyed being there and being part of UFC History!!!

Fighters....
I got to meet some fighters I had never met before...Kenflo & Roger Huerta
Stood in line at Starbucks behind Jens and Kannicka....got pics
Got to see this guy Matt Hughes...maybe you've heard of him
Saw Forrest, Rampage, Wanderlei, Sherk, Chuck, Karo, Diaz, Couture....
We were first row lower level, right off the floor....so as Gracie, Lyota Machida, Clay Guida, U. Faber all went to their seats......I got pics!
What a great weekend!!!

What are you agreeing about--one of it, some of it, or all of it?
