    right on, now i can watch kevin burns poke AJ’s other eye out too

  • Joshua says:

    Can Burns make a closed fist now?

  • Rich S. says:

    i really hope AJ can win this time around..

    we saw him dominate for three rounds until an illegal eyepoke and a bad call by the ref gave him a freak TKO loss..

    then he needed eye surgery..

    and his appeals were turned down..

    i would hate to see him go through all of that only to lose in the second fight..

  • finkrod says:

    I don’t think the hand thing cleared up. But now he follows it up with an uppercut to his opponents groin. Due to breaking his arm too many times. This is then followed by a loud “WOOOOOOOO! Hopefully AJ won’t be too leery of the eye poke to engage with Burns.

    anyone besides me just hear “JUNIE DONT YOU ARE IN THE FINALS”

  • armingo says:

    as he was being pelted with eggs and charging upstairs

  • Robert says:

    Anthony “Rumble”Johnson by KO. not as bad as Tom Speer taking a nap on one knee up against the cage but a KO to make the first fight’s ridiculous decision a distant memory.

  • Bad Monkey says:

    Kevin Burns by repeated low blows. Take it to the bank.

  • Robert says:

    well, justice will not be totally served because to give a man a win, when it it was clear he was losing and worse cheating to win sickens me, worser is no turnover on appeal attempts, again even if Johnson wins, which by the way I believe he will justice will never be totally served, unless the commision suddenly overturns a decision. But johnson should win and at the end of the day thats all that matters, to win and put a loss in his column as well, but justice in this case is not served………..
