  • Sykotick says:

    W O W

    Holy SHIT!!
    Machida comes through,
    3-0 tonight

  • Rece Rock says:

    Guess Steven Seagal is happy… Thanks Randy you will be the peoples champ eternally….

  • Rece Rock says:

  • GIKE MOLDBERG says:

    Farewell Randy-hard to guage where Machida stands after this fight though

  • Rece Rock says:

    Homenick looks like the toxic avenger… Aldo put a lump in his head that looks like he got hit with a ball pen hammer

  • Sykotick says:

    Damn, great fight, Aldo brings me to 4-0

  • Rece Rock says:

    Hominick and Aldo put on some fight what a co mainevent Homenick finished strong but it was too little to late, but no matter what he went the distance With a P4P champ… Great stuff

  • Sykotick says:

    Perfect tonight!!

  • Lethal Liquid says:

    I’m a big GSP fan. That was disappointing. I can appreciate a good gameplan. But when you play it safe and put on a boring performance thats the worst.

  • Rece Rock says:

    Great card tonight but the main event GSP / Shields…. Ehh not so much.

  • bigbadjohn says:

    Not the most exciting main event but a good card overall. I know GSP is going to get hate for playing it safe but who could’ve predicted such a lame duck Shields? How can you win by submission if you don’t commit to taking it to the ground? It’s a shame Georges’ eye got screwed up, maybe he would’ve thrown some more head kicks and opened up a bit.

  • Yourdaddydevilandlord says:

    My prefight predictions:
    Aldo by a rapid, unidentifiable flurry of random limbs. He might rip off one of Hominick’s arms and knock him out with that. Machida by frustrating decision, with Randy missing takedowns, eating a few shots but absorbing them, rinse, repeat, I don’t think Randy can grab him and I don’t think Lyoto can seriously hurt him on the feet. He will more likely just wear on him for three rounds and get the decision. GSP by head kick in the third. Jake will eat more shots in the first then he did against Hendo and he won’t be able to get GSP down. I will go out on a limb and say Jake will dive in for a shot and eat a perfectly timed kick to the head or face region.
    Also, I like the Janitor by gnp and Ben Henderson by highlight KO, both of whom will be looking to erase the nasty taste of previous fights, Matyushenko to Jones by gnp, and Henderson by that crazy ass Pettis kick. I’m sure he wants to deliver one of those KO’s that get millions of youtube plays, after having heard so much about the kick that he was closest to but saw the least of anyone in the building.
    Props to Hominick, he did great, although he was rapidly morphing into Rocky Dennis in the fourth, he hung in there and won the last round. I was pulling for him to finish there at the end. He doesn’t have anything to worry about, that was more of a win for him than anyone expected even with the decision loss. Thumbs up to the Machine! Great fight!
    Lyoto wins by Karate Kid kick, are you fuckin’ kidding me? I was like, “did he just throw the karate kid kick?” right before Rogan said the same thing, and the whole crowd sat in shock that Randy just got knocked out by Lyoto’s TOE!!!! Wild, I love this sport!! Much love Randy, and good luck in everything you do from here on out, be it announcing, training the next generation, or sippin’ Pina Colada’s while watching video of your Ex getting her ass kicked!!!
    To the Main Event!!!! Man, in the fourth I thought I was proven right, just late by one round but Jake held on, the guy can take a shot. That replay showed his whole damn head move in about a hundred unnatural ways, with shockwaves going everywhere. I can’t believe he survived that kick! As for GSP, I hope his eye is okay, but that was another lackluster, safe fight for him. I would have to put him behind Silva on the P4P list because of his lack of decisive victories, maybe behind Jones if Jones puts another dominant performance on when he gets back. If he was still fighting Rashad, and worked him as bad as he has everyone else, I would have a hard time saying GSP was ahead as of right now on the P4P. With GSP, I always feel like he will get caught at any point while he is just looking to stay safe, I don’t know, he just isn’t as an exciting of a champ as Silva, Jones, or Aldo before tonight, although those kicks are still just nasty!
    Go Janitor, good win baby!!!
    Don’t piss of Henderson, he takes guillotine attempts personally, like Wolverine takes nut shots!! He just kept going berserk.
    Good night of fights, plus we got the bizarre feeling of watching guys in Affliction stuff in the Octogon, while Goldberg talked about Gina Carano fighting for Strikeforce as an upcoming, UFC calender event!!! Dana and Lorenzo are like the GSP and A. Silva of the business side of things, dominating everyone while we wait to see if they will ever face eachother……….!!!!!!!! Dun dun duuuun!!!!!

  • Creature says:

    Very impressed with mcdonald.. im surprised diaz didnt break something landing on one of those insane throws.. Ben did pretty much exactly what i expeced.. hes def a legit contender at LW. Vlad shocked me.. i never thought brilz would go down like that especially after seeing some of the shots he took from nog. Couture.. im sad to see you go, especially on a loss like that. but props to machida, that was one hell of a crazy kick. hominick’s head was almost to nasty for me to even look at.. but probs to showing great heart and finishing very strong. and GSP… wow.. never expected him to look that hesitant and scared to really let loose at all with his strikes..

  • GIKE MOLDBERG says:

    I think the real story here is-is Machida finally going to let go in the cage like he supposedly does during training with the likes of the spider and the NOG twins-If he does-He is the most interesting and biggest legitimate threat to the new swagga JJ throne-I actually have Machida winning that fight-His sumo balance experience is highly underestimated-he is a master of bodyweight balance

  • twyg says:

    A great card. The only weak point was the main event. Am I the only person who thinks GSP should no longer be the main event on a card? He can’t finish strikers on the mat, and can’t KO grapplers standing. Matt Serra turned GSP into a fighter who fights not to lose instead of a fighter who fights to win. Shields may have done even more by fucking up the champs eye. He wouldn’t finish guys before this fight because the Serra KO is probably still in his head; what kind of lame fights will we have to deal with after his eye got hurt? Everything about this card lived up to the hype, and in many respects surpassed it; but what can be done about a guy who is content to just go to five round decisions every time he steps in the cage. I would love to see a GSP/Nick Diaz fight, but GSP would find a way to make that a boring fight. GSP does not seem to thrilled at going up to fight the spider so we are stuck with a WW champ who puts everyone to sleep except his opponent.

  • Sykotick says:

    Getting tired of hearin people whine about GSP not finishing people.

    Why is it after every UFC event there is AT LEAST one person complaining about something on the card??
    GSP finished Serra and Penn (bj’s refusal to meet the bell=stoppage=finished), now Serra, ehh ok, but Penn, besides Hughes, who has finished him??.
    Fitch, Fitch has ONE loss, therefore I pose the question again, who has finished him?
    Alves? I know Fitch finished him, but not very many others have.
    What about Hardy? Besides Condit, idk who else has ended his night early, and I maintain if GSP weren’t such a gentleman about everything, he would have snapped Hardy’s arm.
    Now Shields, “whaaa whaaa he couldn’t even stop him on his feet!” NEWSFLASH… NEITHER COULD DAN HENDERSON!!
    You know, the Dan Henderson who is a middleweight? Come on, you know, the guy that smashed Bisping!
    Who has stopped Shields? Who, only loss by stoppage I cam see om his record is to some dude when he was like 2-1 (fact not gotten by reputable source so not for sure he has ever been stopped).
    It makes no difference if GSP’s stand up is 1000 times better than Shield’s cuz so was Hendo’s AND Lawler’s, yet they couldn’t do it either.
    Besides that, fight a wrestler with one good eye and see if you’re not gun shy cuz you can’t really tell if he is posturing to strike or to shoot for a take down, cuz, ya know, wrestlers tend to do that.

    Come on people, think before your start whining about something completely illogical.

  • JabCrossHook says:

    Yeah but GSP is boring….the last exciting fight he had was with Fitch, that had a high pace. He wore down BJ methodically because he was shook to box with him….

    Dan Hardy fight was a snoozefest where GSP could’ve certainly tried to do a lot more damage with GnP instead of working for submissions he couldn’t get right anyway, has nothing to do with hardy being double jointed.

    Kos was waiting to get KOed in the third round and GSP did nothing….

    He never unleashed any follow-up shots after damaging Jake Shields on two occasions….

    He does not deserve to be in the same sentence as Anderson or Fedor. He will never be known as a legend with such unimpressive performances, I don’t care what you GSP nuthuggers say but the fact of the matter is your boy is really boring to watch and never goes for the finish. GSP’s striking is not that great either, I dunno wtf ppl are thinking when he has world class stand up….keep dreaming.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    i dont think GSP is boring, just a Greg Jackson fighter, obviously hugely influenced by the man.
    Last fight GSP used a jab, this time a jab and over hand right. All i want to see is a few power shots, i dont care i he misses and falls on his arse, use the upper cut, lead hook, some body shots, seriously where are the body punches? and why no fucking knees, jake obviously couldnt handle him in the clinch so why not attempt to use a muay thai clinch at least once? throw a knee, just try it.
    the guy is an immense athlete, and the fact that he can win fights by just using a jab and not even attempting to finish is a pretty amazing feat, but its gonna bring the hate.
    i just wanna see him get aggressive and at least once during a fight, attempt to finish. i dont wanna watch the Greg Jackson school of point fighting

  • hindsightufuk says:

    awesome show top to bottom tho, production values were off the hook, love that big screen.

    oh and i want Nick Diaz to take a pop at GSP. it won’t happen but i wanna see it

  • JabCrossHook says:

    “the fact that he can win fights by just using a jab and not even attempting to finish is a pretty amazing feat”

    uh no its not an amazing feat, boxers do it all the time, in fact it makes him look like a puss if he’s landing the jab at will and not following up with power shot combos, he’s a champ he shouldn’t hesitate and play it safe when he’s ahead and the guy can only see out of one eye (kos i mean)

    the last time GSP was really “aggressive” was against fitch, that was an exciting fight to watch, after that it was ok then boring, then snoozefest.

  • Creature says:

    Uh yeah it is an amazing feat.. this isnt boxing where they only have to worry about the hands of there opponent.. to be able to win a MMA fight only using a jab when u have a threat of so many different diverse weapons of an MMA opponent is quite amazing. IDK how smashing someones orbital and closing their eye with just a jab makes you look like a puss.. Now i agree GSP wasnt impressive in there last night and it wasnt fan friendly.. but he got the job done, got the W and really thats all that matters. Greg Jackson Fighters get the W. fan friendly or not there the ones winning in the cage.

  • Sykotick says:

    I don’t mean to sound like an ass, but get a clue, seriously.

    #1 and #2 Welterweights just went at it yesterday, and when you get those kind of fights, obviously people tend to play it a little safe.

    Hate. O break it to you Jab, but fighting is a 2 way street, all of this “Why didn’t he try to finish” crap is ok I guess, but why not ” Why wasn’t Jake looking for ways to get it to the ground?
    By the 4th round he for sure needed a finish, why wasn’t he fighting for a clinch and pulling guard?? He was getting picked apart, why not time the jab and go for broke with flying armbars and triangles?
    Keep in mind, its GSP’s job to fight smart and not lose his title, its the CHALLENGER’S job to dethrone the champ.
    Let’s switch focus, how excited were you HONESTLY when Chael Sonnen was schooling The Spider? You know you were excited. Well that same style is how GSP rolls, he dominates you. Now YOU may find that boring but most people find. it freakin amazing.

    Btw something I haven’t seen touched on amongst all the GSP whining is: how many fighters do you know of that can gas out in the SECOND round and still win via UD in a 5 round fight?! Mad mad props to Jose Aldo.

  • hindsightufuk says:

    yep i agree, i thought Jose was done in the second round, long lay off is likely to blame, hopefully next time he comes with more fire

  • GIKE MOLDBERG says:

    GSP has turned into someone that I can’t wait to get his ass beat-Please put Nick “capitol D” Diaz in the cage with this safety first homo-could you imagine Liddell or Wanderlei fighting like that?-Let’s put things in perspective-Quite frankly-I grew up in the Fillmore district of San Francisco-and I know how to go for the kill-Are you telling me that this so called professional doesn’t?-get some new trainres or stop fighting at this level if you are so scared to lose a minute-horrible-especially in front of your fans-who were actually booing your lame ass-super athlete-please-more like sissy

  • Sykotick says:

    Yes, you know how to go for the kill, but against who? Cuz the “scared homo” does isn’t facing two-bit street wanabe thugs, he is facing the best in the world.
    But no, you’re right, how freakin dare he not finish the #2 Welterweight in the world!! The guy who was on a 15 fight win streak. The guy that Middleweights couldn’t finish! Now let’s all walk around butt-hurt cuz he didn’t finish him for the rest of his title reign.
    Get a grip people, face his level of competition before you make dumbass statements like “I know how to go for the kill”.
    Any jackass can street fight and smash someone who knows no technique, but goodluck dropping the dude who knows what he is doing.

  • twyg says:

    For everyone who has given me a thumbs down; what did I say that was not true? GSP fights not to lose. He does not fight to win and does not look for the finish. I don’t want to hear this crap about who has finished Jake Shields. If you want to go down as the GOAT you better be doing things others can’t. Yeah he dominates his wieght class, but he is far from entertaining. He has said it himself; his biggest fear is losing. The Serra fight changed him forever. I would put money that before Serra he had more finishes then after Serra. That was one of the best cards from beginning to end that I have seen. All except the end that is. Also for people saying why don’t I complain about Shields not going for the finish its because Shields isn’t the number two p4p (some assholes think GSP is number one). He shouldn’t headline cards anymore, and yes I said the same thing when Silva was dancing. Listen GSP is a great fighter and deserves is number two spot, but his fights as of late could make a coma patient bored.

  • JabCrossHook says:

    That’s exactly my point, if people are arguing that he’s p4p #1 or #2 and GOAT then his performances should reinforce that title.

    Creature its Not really that an amazing feat it would have been if he actually finishes like anderson and GSP already wobbled kos in the 3rd round with left hooks all he needed was to just set up for a power shot flurry and kos would’ve been in trouble, its just that in MMA not many fighters have a good jab, and when two great grapplers fight they usually cancel each other out and just end up striking for the whole fight.

    Also his success has a lot to do with the rules that favor wrestling.

  • Sykotick says:

    Georges St. Pierre’s UFC finishes.

    Pre serra.

    Jay Hieron (tko)
    Frank Trigg (sub. RNC)
    Sean Sherk (tko)
    Matt Hughes (tko)

    Post Serra

    Matt Hughes (sub. Armbar)
    Matt Serra (tko)
    B.J. Penn (tko)

    Yup, big difference.

  • Creature says:

    How is dominating every opponent you face in every round not doing something other ppl cant? just because hes far from entertaining and says hes scared to lose doesnt mean hes not one of the GOAT… he doesnt go for the finish? have you seen the hardy fight? the only reason he didnt get the Finish was because hardy wasnt tapping even if he lost his arm. he went for the finish in the fitch fight but.. its Fitch, no one at WW finishes him. Just because he doesnt take HUGE risks and leaving himself open to lose in an instant doesnt mean hes not looking for the finish. Nick Diaz went for the finish against daley, and left himself open and almost got himself knocked out twice before he got the W. the syerra fight showed GSP hes not invincible and at any moment he can lose if he leaves himself open.. since he likes to win he makes sure not to let it happen again. not to “play it safe” but to not leave himself open to anything.

  • climbarock says:

    I know I’m a little late to the party here, but why don’t we call a spade a spade.

    Great night of fights, overall. Ben Henderson vs Bocek was a great fight. Bocek was game, even if he got beat in all 3 rounds. B Henderson is the real deal…super athletic, aggressive, amazing submissions escapes/defense…the dude can fight.

    IMO, Brillz got exposed tonight. The dude made his name off a questionable loss to Lil’ Nog, and last night got knocked out my an old wrestler. Hype train officially derailed.

    The Garza/Jaboine fight was amazing start to finish, and the finish was great. You don’t see a flying f’in triangle very often.

    Couture looked old and Machida looked great. I know this was hyped as, “OMFG Machida lost two straight, he needs a win vs an old Couture”…but c’mon…Machida whooped Rampage’s ass…he only lost 2 straight in the eyes of the judges, and those eyes are nearly worthless. He just showed he’s top of the heap at LHW, and Couture’s retirement is past due. No disrespect to The Natural, but we all saw this coming.

    Hominick was game but was soundly defeated by Aldo. Yeah, Hominick had slightly better boxing, but this is MMA.

    GSP/Shield was as lackluster as title fights get, and BOTH fighters were to blame. GSP should have finished a very sub-par striker, and Shields should have tried desperately to take the fight to the ground. There isn’t much else to say…the fight was shit.

  • JabCrossHook says:

    Creature with kos he wouldn’t have been taking a big risk not to mention freddie roach probably taught GSP how to throw power shots with head movement. Kos was seeing out of one eye helped GSP’s situation not to mention kos is not really known as a technical or counter striker.

    The hardy fight was just GSP lay and pray with him going for kimuras without the proper technique which was mentioned after the fight by one of his own bjj coaches. He could’ve went for GnP and tried to damage hardy but instead he chose to keep fishing for submissions and maintaining control. Also dan hardy was exposed and hyped to be a contender, he was never really that good. Yeah still far from being GOAT…
