lawler's counter boxing=best in MMA

He always grabs his hands when he's out of range and begins shrugging his shoulders.

I don't know why anyone would want to willingly stand and trade with Robbie.

His boxing, parry, head movement and feints are the best I've ever seen in the octagon

Bermudez vs Conor ?
Swanson vs Conor ?
Either would be interesting.
post #3574 of 34258

thomson once again content to fight to the level of his competition. im glad to see green get the win though..

 

and robbie needs to take a break.. dude looked burnt out. he had quite a few opportunities to step on the gas but just didn't pull the trigger.

Dammit Mendes vs Aldo II confirmed for Brazil.
post #3577 of 34258
I thought Green would have been outclassed today but he showed me a lot.

I think he's just out-athleting his opponents right now. If he is willing to learn and applies what he learns he can be a problem

Didn't get to watch the fights yet, went to the Phillies game :{, from what I'm hearing the card was great. But a lot of people online are criticizing Brown for faking a nut shot. Was it that bad? And how'd Rumble Johnson look?

Missed the fake nut shot so I can't comment.

 

As for Rumble, you could literally see Lil Nog's soul leave his body after he ate those punches from Johnson.

I still remember seeing him get choked out by rich clemente. He's come a long way and resurrected his career. Crazy that he struggled at 170 but is now one of the most dangerous guys at 205.
post #3583 of 34258

Its still unbelievable to me that Rumble use to cut down to 170 lbs. I remember him fighting Arlovski at HW while is WSOF

Keeping the faith, but hostile environment for Money. Liked his chances more in LA. Even Vegas would be more beneficial and perhaps fair to Mendes.

Felt it, man. As long as Rumble remains motivated and humble, absolute problem at 205. No one wants to feel his power and he showed takedown D against neutralizing his striking.

Yeah, it saved his ***. He was hurt pretty bad after kick to the body and he faked like it was low, ref gave him time and everything. Kick was nowhere close to low neither. It was desperation move that worked for him.

I'm with you. Which 3 rounds you score for Ruthless?

Condit and Robbie would be even better than Ruthless vs. Immortal Brown.

Can't tell if its official or just wishful thinking but Helwani, Frankie, and others are tweeting about Frankie v Cub main eventing the next UFC on Fox in Dec.

 

So @illphillip & @Vincent Van Ho you two will have a definitive answer to who should be ranked higher after the match.

Lol I think we can all agree that Frankie/Cub is a fight that should happen regardless of who's ranked where. If it goes to decision, you have to think favor Frankie.

 

That division is just ridiculous.

 

As far as the first Hendricks/Lawler scrap, it was pretty close. Not mad that they gave it to Hendricks.

post #3594 of 34258
For whatever reason, Aldo and Bigg Rigg are two fighters I could never align with. I'd like to see both get dethroned by Mendes and Robbie. Although Ruthless has the far better chance.

WEC Aldo was a force I couldn't help but support, it was like watching a lion. UFC Aldo on the other hand, the point fighting/conservative Aldo I would not mind seeing dethroned one bit.

Props to bobby green, rumble, and ruthless for outstanding performances.

Can't wait to see rumbles next matchup
post #3597 of 34258

Really impressed by Rumble but who is there for him to fight? Jones is fighting DC, Gus is out and probably won't fight again until he gets a title shot, Glover is fighting Davis, Rashad is hurt and even when he comes back they won't fight. I guess he could get the winner of Bader/OSP or if DC wins and Jones gets an immediate rematch he can get Gus.

post #3598 of 34258

Rumble said he'd fight the winner of Bader/OSP to stay active, or fill in if DC or Jones gets injured. Evans seems to be really close with Rumble since they train together so I doubt they'd ever fight.

post #3599 of 34258
Is glover vs davis finalized yet?

I'd personally rather watch glover & rumble than that. Glover & davis would be a snoozefest

The winner of bader/OSP doesn't really make sense IMO
post #3600 of 34258

I haven't read anything official on Davis v Teixeira.

 

A Teixeira/Rumble brawl would be awesome but the UFC doesn't really like making fights with a guy coming off a loss, so Rumble/Tex might not make any sense either. Tex got destroyed by Jones it wasn't even close.

 

Both Bader and OSP are already top 10, so the winner of that fight will be an appropriate opponent and make sense to stay active. Why wouldn't it make sense?
