UFC The UFC Thread

First time I've seen Rashad Evans fight - his showboating is refreshing, and that was one helluva punch - Chuck was out cold on his feet! When they showed the reply from the back, and how his head/neck took the punch I thought he might have been injured, especially given that they kept the cameras away from the downed Liddell while he was recovering. The match was lots of stalking punctuated with occasional tussles then 2 almighty punches - 1 from each guy. If Chuck's uppercut had hit I reckon they'd both have been down!
I liked Matt Brown when I saw him on Ultimate Fighter, he looks mean all the time! Iffy decision gave it to Kim - I thought Matt lost the 1st but took the next 2 personally.
A devastating Marquardt made a previously impressive Kampfman look like a newb in a short space of time.
Palhares is another one I'd never seen before - fantastic range of kicks not/rarely seen in UFC before. Only someone with Henderson's experience could have beaten him.
Tim Boesch punches like a train, and was a great match to watch.
Franklin v Hamill was a great fight - would have expected nothing less from 2 training partners. Franklin seems to look better at this weight, or is it just me?
I was glad McDonald beat Lambert - I'm a bit of a McDonald fan. Rear naked choke, tidy!

that knock out of chuck by rashad was a classic chuck was out before he hit the floor rashad was just to fast for him he played chucks game and won i think there is a lot more to come from rashad
i to like McDonald i think he has a good submission game but missed the end of that fight me sky froze
i also think mat brown should of won that fight to
Franklin and Hamill was not a bad fight but i expected better from them to Hamill should of tried to take him down more he is a very good wrestler but for some strange reason stood with Franklin most of that fight big mistake on Hamill part me thinks i also think Franklin is best at lower wait but he can not beat the spider i suppose the spider will move up to the 205 weight to kick Franklin's arse again that man can fight
also enjoyed the Henderson fight he was up against a tricky opponent for sure that has real good BJJ skills
yup marquardt was very impressive to
to be honest i dont think there are to many boring fights on the UFC thats why i love it i find it much more interesting than boxing
Diaz just won by split decision

yeh i've been lookin forward to the shammy/kimbo fight since it was announced. I really dislike kimbo so would love to see Shamrock finish his career with a high profile bang...sadly...with a 5 fight losing streak and him not winning a decent fight since 1996 i dont see that happening. I think, personally, the best thing Elite XC have going for them is there female MMA division, Gina Carano fights tonight and the girls always put on a sick performance especially Gina...and shes fit! so looking forward to that one.
As for Fedor not signing with the UFC well the main reason for that is because the UFC only do Exclusive contracts, i.e. he can ONLY fight for the UFC and no other organisation. The problem with that, is that Fedor competes in World Sambo Competitions in Russia (he's the current heavyweight sambo champ) and Dana White (UFC President) wouldn't of allowed it if he had signed. The Current UFC Nazi-like contract is a fuckin joke if you ask me anyway, they practically exploit and milk a fighter dry which has turned a lot of sick fighters away from the UFC which is a shame. Anyway...that...and also another reason is that the current UFC heavyweight division isn't really all that. Infact, it's probably the weakest division in the UFC right now....sure, there are 2 or 3 exciting fights for him like Randy Couture, Brock lesnar and possibly Fabricio Werdum or Gabriel Gonzaga but then what? He already has two wins over the current UFC heavyweight champ and he destroyed the former UFC heavyweight champ in 36 mouth watering seconds he hasn't got anything left to proove.
I personally think the Heavyweight division outside the UFC is a lot stronger right now and theres a lot more interesting match ups, think about it. He fights Josh Barnett in January/February, then theres people like Allister Overeem, Andrei Arlovski, Ben Rothwell and a Cro Cop rematch....these fights are all against Top Ten Competition that can solidify his 'Greatest Heavyweight Of All Time' status. As far as im concerned, al this hype over Randy Couture is a joke, he needs to proove himself to fedor not the other way round.
