Wrestling & MMA thread

Post by The Dr Of Style on Mon Mar 31, 2008 6:04 pm

I usually only buy the big 4 shows each year but mania would have been my last buy a year ago....I really enjoyed the show. Thought ladder match was again awesome.soem huge bumps and moves...See vince midcarders deserve opportunities!!....how many times have guys like carlito/shelton had great matches (when he was in the elimination chamber) then instantly back to garbage the week later...anyway.....Batista/Umanga (I love Regal) was all it was ever going to be...slow and no history.....it took the place of Kane/Khali at least this year.......Kane winning the title was funny and something different....yet to watch either of the main championship matches but I'm happy with the way the results went. After complaining about flair matches I take it back now.....Apart from hearing him talk to Shawn through the whole match I thought it was a great effort and send off... Michaels moonsault onto announce table was brutal....Finally The "I'm sorry...I love you" ....man that was perfect classic 2 heroes ending....I was close to tears (what a biach).....oh and to top the night off Mae Young attempting to strip again...hillarious!

I haven't watched wrassl'n in years, but I'm a MMA fan.
Looking forward to GSP/Serra 2 - I think Serra might be in some trouble this time around. Lutter/Franklin and Starnes/Quarry should be nice battles.

I haven't seen Danzig fight (KotC or TUF6) but have seen his record so I'm keen to check this fight out.

Sorry Danzig? the only Danzig I know is the singer from the Misfits and Danzig...I'm assuming it's someone else....although he's pretty big....there's a vid somewhere on youtube of him getting floored with a sucker punch

Danzig's good, doubt he'll ever be championship material but he deserves to be in the UFC. I think the new TUF starts this week stateside... i'm looking forward to it...

Finally got to watch WMXXIV last night (after an entire week of avoiding spoilers).

Very average 'Mania overall, with a mix of great, and crap matches.

The highlights for me were MITB (which far exceeded my expectations), and Flair/HBK (which was just ****ing amazing).

I was also (pleasantly) surprised that the Edge/'Taker match was so clean.

yeah, i got it too, both rampage and forrest cracked me up.

did you see the UFN? there was a great bit with joe rogan where forrest talks about how he can't coach at all, but he figured rampage couldn't either so it would be ok.

Haven't grabbed the last UFN, however, I did watch the Hamill and Houston fights. BTW, what day does the next episode of TUF7 air?

Have only seen the serra/GSP fight....fine line for the stoppage....serra seemed to have stopped defending himself...was he taking too much damage...hard to know.....but he made no attempt to get up....that usually means the ref will step in.....Plenty of controvecy with the starnes/quarry fight....or lack of fight by the sounds of it....after becoming tired of Starnes running away quarry tried some different tactics....the running man chase and the sprinkler/cobra strike attack...goodbye career starnes

Thread revived..... Just watched Florian Vs Stevenson & Lesnar V Coture UFC 91.....Florian definately one of my faves but Joe Stevenson no mug himself...florian made it look easy.....and not exactly sure what happened to Coture he ate a knee... then when he went down it didn't look like Lesnar connected much more than a glance....but lying on the floor eating 15 hammer fists....not gonna come back from that

yeah, i was disappointed with Couture's loss... the guy's a class act though, though I think it's about time to retire. I don't know how long Lesnar will be champ though. I'm going to predict he loses to whoever wins Mir vs Nogueira.

Brock went for the old 1-2 combo. Randy was able to duck under the jab but got clipped behind the ear with the right cross. I'm surprised Yamasaki didn't stop it after the first round of hammer fists, it's never good seeing a fighter's head bounce off the mat only to meet another hammer fist or forearm shot.

A fight against Nog is probably the tougher matchup for Lesnar - the guy's got a huge frick'n heart and is tough as nails. Don't get me wrong Mir is solid, but I think Lesnar would have learnt from the mistakes he made in their first fight.

Shame to see Randy lose like that, I thought he was doing pretty well against a guy of Lesnar's size.

Yes 100 was pretty good. The result of Henderson/Bisping was brutal.

Hendo/Bisping was a thing of beauty. Loved it!

Man Lesnar's a douchebag.

I thought his comments were pretty funny but he did carry on. I suppose having to listen to all that trash talk and the whole fight build up/delay does take it's toll.

Did you watch the post-fight interviews? I'm guessing Dana tore strips off him for the sponsor comments but was probably rubbing his hands with excitement with all the PPV sales he's going to make off of Lesnar now.

The outcome of the Valasquez (spelling) and Irwin fight should be interesting. Yeah Hendo/Bisping was sweet - definitely KO the night.

Looking forward to Silva/Griffin. Is BJ/KenFlo on the same card?

I thought bisping looked skinny.....I thought when he was a contestant on ultimate fighter he was bigger.. could be wrong tho it's been a couple of years....brutal second hit by henderson....all the blood in the ring was from an earlier fight....might have to search for that one....who's next for lesnar? he's looking dangerous.....not much technique but just over powering guys.....his wrestling skills should keep him away from the submission risk he has

i thought the same about bisping. he used to be up at lhw (205lbs) and now he's down to mw (185lbs), alot of people say that's a good weight for him cos he used to be a small lhw.
