Default BLOG: UFC 127

From Matt's blog:

Quote:
This weekend's UFC is an interesting card for me, with former teammate Spencer Fisher fighting and also local Illinois kid Jason Reinhardt on the card as well. Then, with BJ on the card, it's just a must-see night of fights for me. I don't watch all of the UFCs, I've really got to be interested in a match-up or have a friend on the card; but this is one of those that I've just got to watch.

I think if BJ goes in and does what we worked on, things are going to look really good for him; but sometimes gameplans are hard to implement, so we'll just see. I can guarantee you that BJ has the tools to win and I think comes out with his hand raised.

The Bonus:

As most of you will remember, before the Almeida fight I had a deal with Jeremy Horn and Matt Pena. If I knocked Almeida out or knocked him down with a punch to win the fight, Matt Pena would get a gun. If I submitted Ricardo Almeida, Jeremy Horn would get a gun. Well, that week of the fights, the discussion got brought up, "What if you knock Ricardo down with a punch and then submit him from that knockdown?" My response was, "Ya both get a gun." Well, I didn't think that would happen. To me it was a longshot; but the more I thought about it it came to me, if I win the fight who cares if I have to buy two guns? So at the end of the fight, I knocked Ricardo down with my hook and then I went straight down and finished him with a submission. This next part I'll never forget: when I get up from choking Almeida, I turn around and look at my corner and the first thing I see is Matt Pena and he's got a smile on his face, holding two fingers up, saying "Two guns!" And that's been a joke between us ever since. So this is a picture of Matt holding his bonus. For those of you who don't know it is a LaRue rifle with a US Optics scope.

Here are the air times for this week's episode of Trophy Hunters TV that I'm hosting, on the Outdoor Channel:

Yes, that fight was one of my all-time favorites, I'm glad they both got that scary-looking gun.

I'm surprised! But I guess it's different when you're one of the fighters rather than just a fan.

Anyway, another good blog entry, it's nice getting the inside scoop, like Matt P. holding the 2 fingers up. TY Matt!

Boomer isn't betting against your picks for this UFC, is he?

And, what kind of hunting do you use this type of gun for?

I'm looking forward to this card too, Matt! Lytle, vs Ebersole looks like a good matchup too.
That is a nice looking gun. What caliber is it?

Let us know who Boomer picks against ya so we know who not to bet on
