MMA & Boxing 19: Cody Garbrandt's Dance Party

I thought the first Woodley vs Thompson fight was dull as ditch water and I never wanted a rematch.

Still I did not expect the terrible snorefest we were offered. I'm glad they were booed by the crowd. 

For me, I don't see how Thompson has any right to anything, so Woodley is the deserved winner.

Over two matches, Thompson has done jack shit. Certainly Woodley was the better man yesterday.

Let's never fight again guys.

Vannata vs Teymur was the only fight I really enjoyed, and while I thought Vannata would win this, Teymur ended up deserving the win.

Mostly I was just disappointed by Khabib vs Ferguson being cancelled. Every main UFC event now has a cancellation since June 2016 it feels like. Jones vs Cormier. No. Cormier vs Rumble? No. Werdum vs Velasquez then? No.

Don't worry, DC and Khabib will likely both be on the same card now so we can have two cancellations for the price of one.

... If this was LHW or HW or some weak division the UFC could have infinite patience working him up until he well and truly Cains things up ...

Not so sure about that, they just cut hot LHW prospect Cirkunov (4-0 UFC) and established up-and-comer Krylov (6-3 UFC) a couple of weeks ago and no division is more desperate for new blood than 205. Of course technically neither are "Russian" per se, but their names both end in "ov" so I count it.

 

Meanwhile I enjoyed most of the main card. Difficult as it was to see my man Hunto lose, it was a good scrap, with Hunto trailing blood all over the shop from his gashed shin, Overeem showing off his smarts with some damaging kicks and Hunto showing he's much more than just a left hook, mixing in hard body kicks and a bunch of hellbows from various angles, a couple of which visibly stunned Overeem. Then the girlfight was short but sweet with some nifty technique, Dadbod Dan Kelly kept things intriguing against Rashad with his unorthodox, trip-heavy striking game and Lando and Teymor put on a FOTN show in the co-main.

As for the main, I fully expected another draw but I had no issue with the scores which gave Tyron the fight. The media scores apparently were something like 5 for Tyron, 5 for draw, 5 for Wonderboy, so if they ever fight again they should just save us fans the trouble and just flip a coin.

This commentary on Pickett vs Vera :lol: 

"Have you ever been to a rooster fight, Dan?"

"No, and I think I'll avoid them at all costs."

"I agree, hopefully we've moved on as humans from that."

Where did any of that come from? :lol:

Diakiese's KO of Packalen was the business. He looks like a great prospect him. Didn't see any of the rest of the London card but I'll have to catch up on one or two of them.



Golovkin and Jacobs should be good, coming up soon.

So Golovkin/Jacobs was waaaaaaay closer than anyone was anticipating and while I didn't properly score it (was way too tired in the night and haven't rewatched it yet) Jacobs could easily have a case that he won. Razor thin margins, great performance from Jacobs.

 

In other news, Roman Gonzalez lost! Tough, close fight that could also have gone the other way, but a shock nonetheless. Essentially what we saw was a great little man hitting the limit of how high he can move up- despite the loss, his performance in the face of being physically badly outmatched and two serious cuts from head clashes during the fight was brilliant, and so was the fight as a whole. Seek it out, definite FOTY contender.

Jacobs was very impressive as hell. There were a few times I thought the KO was right around the corner but he answered everytime with his own shots. It was a surprisingly great fight, and also weird to see Gennady not dominate thoroughly.

I decided against buying the GGG fight, but I kind of regret that now. If he actually does end up in the ring with Canelo there's no way I'll miss that one.

 

p.s. This forum is so screwy sometimes. It re-loaded this quote box from ages ago and there's no way I can find to delete it. :blink:
