I know, I know. I’ve been absolutely rubbish at updating the blog lately. Especially when there has been so much to talk about in the MMA world. I also missed my blogs first birthday, I didn’t even send it a card….I suck!!
Not much point raking over old news in detail that has been mass reported pretty much everywhere so I won’t spend too much time doing that, but there have been a few big talking points in MMA on the world-stage over the last few weeks when I’ve been AWOL. Here’s my top 5 in true roundup-posting-lazy-ass-blogger style!
- The spiders performance at UFC 112:
- Edgar beats Penn at UFC112:
- Tito getting arrested:
- Jose Aldo being an absolute stud:
- The strikeforce brawl:
First 2.5 rounds he was a genius the rest of the fight he was a massive wanker. He pissed off the fans and he pissed off his boss, he has a lot to make up for in his next fight. He probably doesnt think so but a professional athlete has no business behaving like that in my opinion. The guy is a virtually untouchable genius in the cage but seems like he is believing his own hype too much. Whilst I (along with the rest of the MMA fans in the world) would love to see him fight GSP, I don’t think that will happen. Let’s see how he does against Sonnen and hopefully Belfort after that. I have my opinions but I’ll save those for the predictions post on here that accompanies those events!
“Massive underdog makes Penn look ordinary shocker”. Edgar deserved to win, he didnt deserve the 50-45 that one judge (Doug Crosby) gave him and that one has been done to death on other sites as well. Penn apparently was suffering a sinus infection (or something like that) and wasnt himself. Edgar did a great job of getting in and out scoring points and taking very little damage. Penn has an instant rematch and will no doubt be the favourite to regain his belt. I don’t think Penn took Egdar lightly, but I do think this time out Edgar will be destroyed inside 3 rounds. I can’t see him bringing anything different to the table, we saw the best of Edgar that night. We saw about 20% of Penn. That will be what decides the rematch.
This kid is scary, scary good. It a dominanting performance against a previously dominant champion. He gave Faber a lot of respect but he completely disrespected Fabers legs. Urijah now is walking around a big slab of tenderised meat. That has GOT to hurt. What next for Aldo? Talk of a drop down or even a bulk up to challenge other champions maybe a bit premature but Aldo finds himself in a Silva-esque position. Who honestly can beat him at Featherweight right now?
In short: Shields beats Henderson, tonnes of people in the ring, Mayhem gets in and asks for rematch, Shields team start battering Mayhem, dumb-shit announcer says “These things happen in MMA”….ummmmm not on the UFC they dont mate! Go here:
Here in the little-old UK, there have been some pretty huge announcements affecting the domestic scene, some big upcoming fight cards and an MMA phoenix rising from the ashes. I will blog about these in a separate post sometime real soon!!
On a personal-level I have been snowed under in my real-job, have had some awesome news close to home and have also been getting involved in more MMA awesomeness with UKMMANEWS.com Announcements will come soon and although I am not about to become the UK’s Joe Rogan anytime soon, UK fans may be hearing my dulcet tones in the not too distant future.
