  4. Fabio: you're like a broken record.

  5. Jus got back from the prudential center ……. Sick card carwin fucked mir up ……. Dan hardy earned everyones respect wit amazing toughness and gsp did wat he always does and grinded hardy till the last second……I still don't kno how hardys arm isn't in a cast

  6. hardy is freaking tuff.

    I thought Mir was dead!!

    Fitch makes me snore.

  7. Its been awhile since i have posted..but saw the fights and of course GSP looked dominant not what i expected as i wanted to see a stoppage but got to hand it to Hardy the man is tough…real tough. Just shows you how one dimensional aspect will work out for you when you face a real athlete…Hardy needs to up his game. Now Carwin is a force and Mir is full of shit and a waste of space in the Cage…come on all that smack talk about if i gain 30lbs of muscle so i cut to 265…i will be able to compete with Lesnar…shit Carwin is smaller version of lesnar and he fucking killed Mir tonight…yeah that strength and condiioning training worked out for you real good huh Mir…just goes to prove you cant match years of wrestling experience with a few months of training strength and conditioning…Control is what wrestlers do and there the best at it and you saw it tongiht….what is going to be interesting is how Lesnar vs Carwin goes as that is going to be a great fight…i am a lesnar fan as you all know but honestly it doesnt matter to me who wins but i will be pulling for lesnar. Carwin is a respectable opponent and i cant wait to see them fight in July.

    Now Mir should face the winner of Cain vs Dos Santos or fight Gonzaga but in my eyes Mir is fucking done and his rematch status with Lesnar is years away now..if ever that is. Mir just cant handle the big boys of the HWGHT division…to much strength and speed and bottom line the top 3 have major wrestling backgrounds.

    Not a bad card overall…cant wait to see GSP again…i hope its later this year against Silva but i still think thats a year away. July cant come soon enough as Lesnar vs Carwin will occur….and its going to be great.

  8. Both of Hardy's arms have got to be messed up right now. I think the arm bar looked a lot worse than the kimura as Hardy's long arms made it tough for sustained pressure past Hardy's maximum range of motion with the kimura. Hardy's length also allowed him good defence against GSP's ground and pound. Another thing Hardy did well was spin and slide under GSP each time he got mounted.

    It's not a huge surprise Carwin smashed his way to another KO victory however what impressed me was his explosiveness in hammering out those shots in quick succession, something we haven't really been able to see because the first one usually ends the fight. Lesnar vs Carwin will be a fun one to watch!

  9. Mir – mouth is bigger then his his fight.

    Fitch – is boring, does nothing but control his opponents. If he don't take some more chances, he might end up being the highest ranked fighter on the UnderCard.

    GSP – needs to finish more fights, or risk being a FITCH. He still is freak amazing and I give him mad props for going for all those submissions.

    Hardy – Didn't lose much. I expected him to get rolled by GSP. UFC promoted him way to fast.

    Nate – looked great, he made Markham look like an amateur.

  10. BJJ Brown Belt says:

    Tim,

    I agree with you that Mir over-estimated that adding muscle and weight would be enough against the big boys but honestly, my complaint in the heavyweight division all along has been the range of weight for the division. They really need to create 2 or possibly even 3 weight classes from 206 to 265. I just don't think that it is fair when someone 225 goes up against someone that is 265. Unless the 265 guy sucks, he is going to win because equal skill, the bigger guy will win. How fair would it be for BJ Penn to fight Anderson Silva?…and their fight weights are only 30 pounds of a difference. Imagine a 206er going up against a 265…60 pounds is way to much. We saw what GSP did to BJ and that was "only" a 15 pound difference. The other thing that gets me is…why is the weigh-in 2 days before the fight? Fighters are able to cut weight and then add 15 to 25 pounds back. I know that boxing and wrestling events do it like this but just because they do it this way, why does MMA have to do it like that to? Why? So really a 290 pound fighter is fighting in a division with the heaviest weight being 265? It makes no sense. They should their weight back-satage before their fight or outside of the octagon when they are being checked. I do not believe that Mir is washed up…I just think that he is to small to be fighting against guys that are really 25 or 30 pounds heavier.

  11. Another Boring humping peformance by GSP. Start finishing fights George

  12. was Nate that good or was Markham that bad ?

  13. Carwin is a scary dude. Those uppercuts the he gave Mir were frecking awesome :) .

    As for GSP, i have mixed feelings. There is no doubt that he is a great athlete and is able to naturalize any fighter in his weight class (this is all a given) But GSP is now at the stage in his dominance that he is not just looking to win but leave a legacy and he truly wants that p4p title.

    I dont think GSP can be considered the best P4P fighter in the world. GSP out skills his opponents but doesn't finish fights anymore. Fedor and Silva do both out skill and finish of there opponent. Even BJ Penn Finishes opponents in his weight class. Plus if you look at BJ and Silva they both have fought at higher weight classes and won fights.

    If GSP wants the P4P title he needs to start finishing his opponents and show hes more than just a super ground fighter.

    Personally i think to be earn the P4P title you need to out skill your opponent, win your fights before leaving it to judges and have exciting fights. GSP just falls short in my opinion.

  14. @ WHODINI: Bit of both. Markham was lack lusture from cutting to much weight (and he still didnt make weight) and Diaz looked great at the right weight. This fight was a prime example that cutting down to a weight class dont automatically give you an advantage. Diaz was sharp and looked solid.

  15. I thought it was a great card. I actually liked the Fitch fight and the GSP fight. I thought they were both good technical fights. In all reality, its not like either one of them didn't try to finish their fights. And I'm sorry, Rodney Wallace and Jared Hamman put on an awesome fight and I agree with it as fight of the night.

  16. i had a strong believe ,………:(

  17. MIR VS NOG 2 BOTH LOST A FIGHT WHAT YA THINK?

  18. Agreed BJJ – There needs to AT LEAST be a Super Heavy division to seperate the unfair weight advantages.

    Ross – Excellent point regarding GSP not getting the fictious Pound for pound title due to lack of KO's

    Jay – I think you may prefer Boxing to MMA, where the likleyhood of a striking KO is far more prevalent than MMA's strategies, but all the same it is an imperative aspect of this sport and one that must be appreciated. These bouts are not for shock value or climatic ending, but to weigh the multitude of skills between the two fighters.Hardy showed grit, but GSP showed dominance.

  19. Agree with Tim above. Mir's bark is bigger than his bite. His fighting has gotten more showy than technical since his comeback. After he toe holded Lesnar into tapping, Mir has been on cloud 9. Then he beat Nog, and his confidence / arrogance just took off. In reality, Mir's fighting still isn't where it used to be.. back when he was in his 20s and detroying freaks like Tim Sylvia in the day. Mir is a true fighter because he started all of this in the beginning, when UFC paid shit, but again, Mir needs to either amplify his main strengths (i.e. BJJ) rather than try to match someone else's (like the size of Lesnar). With Carwin, I neber thought his striking was all that great, but it is above average. He has excellent wrestling / control that allows him to avoid getting tapped, and his so-called "6'5" size (even though Mir was taller at the weigh ins, even when Carwin had Nike Shox on) is a mental factor. Carwin's striking is better than most because he throw a lot, with tremendous knockout power, and it's hard for him to miss when the surface area of his hands are the size of your head. Opponents are bound to get caught, and when they they do, Carwin is packing major firepower behind those hands. People say Carwin is overhyped, but his record of all his fights staying within one round doesn't lie. Brock-Carwin will be very interesting. People think Carwin is this giant guy, but he really is only 6'1. At the weigh-ins next to each other, you see that Brock will DWARF Carwin. Brock is definitely the stronger guy. Someone compared stats from the NFL combine back in the day, and believe me, for that, you need to be in tip top shape to put up the best numbers you can for your NFL scouts. Brock almost doubled Carwin's numbers in some aspects. Brock's strength now is superior to Carwin. Brock also wrestled in a better division than Carwin; it's hard to compare wrestling now because it is adapted for MMA, but a lot of wrestling is propelled from strength. Brock will ultimately control the smaller guy. Both use hammer fists to end fights, but I think Brock has more vicious ones. I think Brock will brutally KO Carwin.

  20. HA HA HA HA Mir looked like a jackass lastnight. I don't like Brock but Carwin better be ready! I told yall Carwin would win! Carwin better come in aggresive on Brock,if he wants to win

  21. Jay: Jake Sheilds is a leg humper. Are you really going to

    compare that guy to GSP with a word like "humping"?

    I'll admit that GSP needs to win more impressively because

    as talented as he is, we've all seen it before and frankly, it's getting a little boring. But I wouldn't go as far as you did.

  22. GSP is obviously terrified to stand with anyone since his loss to Serra. You can clearly see it in the way he has fought since that loss. He doesn't ever stand anymore, which used to be his bread/butter, all he does is take down then lay and pray, doing next to nothing on top of the guy. It's both lame and pathetic to watch. He's either so incompetent on the ground, or scared to death of losing on the ground as well.

  23. Cyrus, if you think grappling is pathetic and lame then obviously MMA is not for you. Might I suggest boxing. The Welter Weight Champion is not exciting but completely competent on the ground which is wht he won there yet again.

  24. Like it or not GSP is the champ he wins and it doesnt matter how. He didnt get bailed out by the judges (machida) he won the fight in dominating fashion. Dan Hardy is a tough mother fucker. Didn't care for him much but he proved alot to me. Look at it this way he lasted 5 minutes longer than BJ did and didn't even quit when he should have, TWICE! Mir is going to be gate keeper now. I want to see Dos Santos and Velazquez go. Heavyweight is awesome, Lesnar, Carwin, Cain, Dos santos. Then middle of the road guys now, Mir, Kongo, Gonzaga, Struve, Big Country. can't wait to see if Carwin can test brocks chin. Should be a few good fights awaiting us in that division for a few years to come.

  25. let gsp move up to middleweight cuz maybe he will fight diffrent when he's belt is not on the line

    GSP IS SCARED TO LOSE P4P BEST FIGHTER AGAINST ANDERSON SILVA ,…ANDERSON WILL KILL GSP

    NOG VS MIR 2 !!!! MUST HAPPEN

  26. good ideal Fabio, I'm sure George would approve after defending the belt several times and elevating the brand to be rewarded by stripping him of the belt and placing him in a foreign weight class. Clever…very clever.

    and

    why must Mir vs. Nog 2 happen?

    How about some other challengers, there are lots of HW's.

  27. Keeping one Div of HWGHTS is the only and smartest thing to do as there are not that Many true HWGHTS and fighters that are really good, plus it makes for intersting fights…usually the HW are not he best technically but since Lesnar came around the game has evolved and has forced fighters in the lower to heavy half of the 265lbs limit to advance there skills. True its not fair to have a 60lbs weight advantage but facts are facts if you wiegh 220 and want to fight HW your going to be facing guys who wiegh 265…and you might as well fight at LHW…bottom line is we can debate on this forever but the UFC and other promotion just do not have that many fighters to break up the HW div. It would get boring real quick to see the same fights over and over….

    Think Lesnar vs Mir 3…come on that would be stupid at this point since Lesnar only has 5 fights under his belt…and haveing half your fights with the same guy doesnt look good for him or the UFC. Make him earn it which he could have but fell way short.

    Carwin vs Lesnar is going to be great…and again i dont care who wins because Lesnar has proven himself to be a force in that division win or lose but i will be rooting for Lesnar.

    Mir should fight Gonzaga since Carwin beat him and he lost to Carwin…than he should face Nog again if Nog doesnt retire…than i think he should face Dos Santos or Duffey.

  28. GSP is such a great fighter by the way, sometimes you dont always get the best fights but facts are facts and fighters come to WIN by any means boring or not but honestly GSP dominate win over Hardy wasnt boring as it really showed holes in hardy's game and GSP is a smart smart fighter and he truly evolves every fight. i think we will see Silva vs GSP withing 2 years if he can put on 20lbs of muscle that is.

  29. GSP made mistakes in that fight. he was being too cautious and he was nervous and could not perform to his full ability. That Kimura was done incorrectly and he admiitted that he didnot do his best. If hardy had great wrestling and was a little bit more aggresive he could have beat GSP

  30. If I had an MIT diploma and a rich daddy I'd probably be wealthy. Lots of "If's"

  31. I don't know what else GSP can do, he nearly tore Hardy's arm off, and Hardy did a fantastic job of avoiding strikes while he was on his back(all five rounds).

    I know everyone wants to see a highlight reel knockouts but the main event was a very impressive display of MMA fighting. GSP took Hardy's strengths away from him and utilized his strengths to dominate his opponent. I think the main event definately lived up to the hype and cant wait to see both fighters in the octogon again.

  32. I dont personally feel that wrestling and BJJ is boring.

  33. i dont mind that gsp was going for subs i have mainly trained on the ground way more than stand up but what was wierd is that he wasnt even really ground and pounding. all he went for was subs. Penn and serra both got the shit beat out of them on the ground. i think he coulda stopped it if he woulda potured up more and let his hands go.

  34. What you do not realize is the great job that Hardy did at not allowing GSP to GP him, he did a great job defensivly from the bottom, the guy is hardcore…at one point i thought GSP broke his arms, but than i realized that GSP went soft and didnt want to break it and that is why hardy got out of the arm bar and kimura…GSP should of broken his arms…i mean its a fight and if the guy isnt tapping put more pressure on it and let the ref decide…that is what GSP meant by he wasnt happy with the submissions because he let Hardy off the hook..

    GSP will be back even better after this fight as the man truly wants to evolve and become the best in the world at MMA…

  35. CobraClutch says:

    I agree with Tim.

    Hardy did a wonderful job of avoiding all the subs. No one should fault GSP, either, for his game plans. He is in the fight to WIN, not to fight YOUR fight. He's in there to use his strengths against his opponent's weaknesses, and avoid their strengths. If you want to fight a fight and swing until someone falls, then you do that with your fights, and let us know what your record is with that style. Just talk to Houston Alexander, or Kimbo, and see if they'll train you. GSP is a great fighter, and Hardy definitely earned more respect from me (for what THAT's worth…hahaha) after that fight.

  36. GSP himself in a post fight interview the day after said he made a big mistake by focusing way too much on bjj and not just stand up and come down with hay makers. he should have held hardy ankles and stood up and come down with some fury. its not like hardy would have leg locked him. hardy did a good job dont confuse what im saying but GSP didnt try to ground and pound him near as much as he should of and he himself said that but you guys prolly know better.

  37. everyone is on GSP for "lay and prey", all of his opponents know what he's going to do it's no secret, but they can't stop it!!!

    until someone stuffs his takedowns, GSP will continue to dominate in the same fashion. GSP will cement a legacy regardless of (t)ko's. all that matters is the W column, and that keeps growing with every one of his fights.

  38. if gsp vs daley ever happen

    it would be the same as hardy vs gsp

    i want gsp to fight a good bbj guy

  39. Fabio:

    BJ Penn wasn't good enough at BJJ?

  40. elbowz :

    can you see some1 else beat gsp except a pure bjj guy BJ already tried and maybe in the future will try again

    gsp would wressle with all the good strikers like daley

    let him move up 2 mw then we can see how he fights when he's title is not on the line

    end of the road he will get killed by anderson

    _______________________________________________

    Anderson silva is p4p fighter. gsp isnt.

  41. CobraClutch says:

    For all the GSP haters, check the man's record…

    He beat Matt Hughes twice (wrestler)

    He beat Josh Koscheck, Sean Sherk, and Jon Fitch (wrestlers)

    And we know he BJ Penn twice, with the last one being very decisive and in and out of BJ's guard at will (BJJ)

    He's out-wrestled wrestlers with more experience, and defended against BJJ, passed very tough guards with ease, and used BJJ to get 6 submission finishes, and has even KO'ed or TKO'ed 5 fights (I don't count the knees to Serra, nor his first fight's "accidental verbal tap" by Menjivar).
