What a great fight that was

Brunson is an old classmate of mine, a valiant effort even after taking the L.

Brunson had Romero on the ropes, but it seemed more like Romero was either being complacent or entitled. He's in for a rude awakening once he starts moving up the ranks, but he's a specimen for sure and the Silver medal in wrestling will always be mentioned with his name. Romero was still taken down with ease tonight and also in his last fight, so I don't know how much that Silver medal means in the cage.

 

:rollinat Cole Miller calling Cerrone "Clownboy" Cerrone and saying he'd pay for Dolce to help Cerrone cut to 145 for a fight. Dudes have had beef for a while now. Cerrone stays mad at guys who beat his friend Leonard :lol Can't wait for that fight, I love bad blood fights. I don't want Cowboy to go to 145 though.

 

Luke Rockhold rebounded nicely however he really didn't get to show much since it ended so quickly. I'm happy he has his confidence back though.

 

Road to the Octagon this Saturday! 2 P.M. pacific time on Fox

Not to beat a dead horse, but I've had it with Anik and Florian. They need to be retained in some capacity but when they call fights they make it seem second rate and unimportant. "The Voice" can make even those lowly pro fights seem like main events. He makes no name fighters seem like you're watching something very important. And it isn't manufactured or fake. He makes me want to watch those lesser orgs even with fighters I've never heard of. Is there any way "The Voice" could move on from AXStv? I doubt it but it's nice to dream.

TJ looked tremendous aswel. I think his striking is better than Urijah's at this point.

1st round of Brunson/Romero looked like a Silverback territorial dispute.

Dudes was beasting on a next level mean.gif

Looks like there's a wsof card on on Saturday featuring rumble Johnson and Justin gaethje. With a win Johnson gets a title shot but will also be a free agent. Gaethje apparently is a rising lightweight so hopefully we will get some entertainment. It's on the nbc sports network

As soon as Ric Flair walked in the crowd lost it. I was wondering if it picked up on tv.

Donald Cerrone apparently is broke :{

 

This could be good for fans though since he's hungry to win and put on entertaining fights. Cowboy said he wants 6 fights in 2014 :eek


 

Quote:

“What really happened is I spent all my money and now I’m broke,” Cerrone told Majority Draw Radio. “Now I only got one choice, and that’s to fight.

 

“It’s hard to have money in the bank and want something and then not get it. I just (expletive) buy it. I have no idea what saving money is. It has nothing to do with wanting to go broke. I wish I had millions in the bank; I’d never go broke. Let’s get that belt and get millions in the bank.”

 

The downslope, as Cerrone referred to it, began around the time he lost his UFC 141 fight against Nate Diaz. Since then, the Jackson’s MMA standout said he began to taper off in his training, being present physically, but lacking the mental focus that he had in years prior.

The problem, Cerrone revealed, was that he reached a comfort zone and remained there for an extended period of time.

 

“What happened was I got real comfortable financially, and just kind of let off everything — my training, I lost my fire,” he said. “I was training, going through the motions.”

 

Even as he collected a notable win over K.J. Noons at UFC 160 last May, Cerrone said he was missing something.

 

“I was fighting, but didn’t have that inner kill in me,” he said.

Cerrone about that prizefighter life smokin.gif

He'll be lucky to fight 6 times this year though with medical suspensions and risk of injury.

good thing he looked great against dunham

Dude has been one of the most active fighter over the past few years. Wonder what kind of dumb stuff he's been spending his money on. He needs to hire a financial advisor or at least talk to someone who is responsible with their money.

Toys and automobiles and stuff.. Dude is a daredevil live for the moment yolo type

Yo, rumble!!!! Wow!!!! Put Kyle to sleep
post #1011 of 34040
I think Cowboy was pretty deep into wake boarding, even talked about going pro at one point. That could be a money pit, who knows...

Don't know why, but having trouble getting excited for this FOX card, probably the weakest one yet.

Will likely get the DVR treatment from me.

I felt the same way, but then I thought about the ramifications of the fights. I watched the Road to the Octagon, got me a little more excited. I know that Cowboy wants to put on a show, but his opponent looks pretty fierce himself. Stipe is a beast. Thomson doesn't really get the hype but he will give Bendo a test. Sergio Pettis is on the undercard.

 

I just listened to the MMA Hour with Ariel, you guys should check it out. Khabib was on and so was Cole Miller. Great stuff from that show. I have a new respect for Cole Miller even though he called out Cowboy. Khabib said he'd fight Nate and Gil at the same time

Also, Travis Browne was on the show. He sounds so hungry and focused. Yikes. You can't teach those things. Could be the x-factor in a title fight with Cain, in terms of making up for his deficiencies. That is, if he gets past Werdum. He doesn't need to say "I'm motivated" but you can hear the ambition in his voice.

Word. I listen to The MMA Hour over the course of the week during my drives home. Takes a while to get through the whole thing but the show is really well done.

The Co-Main Event with Ben Fowlkes and Chad Dundas is my favorite MMA Podcast. About to throw on this week's episode.

Pretty cool. There's something about those days... reminds me of the NBA and their golden era (the 90's).. something about those days are just>>>>>

Arona....what the **** happened to that dude?

Looking forward to the main event this weekend. Both exciting, high energy fighters. I can't remember the last time I saw either in a snooze.

Cowboy fight looks like it could be a good one.

And it's FREE.

War Bendo, Cowboy, Sergio.

I will be attending Bellator from Mohegan Sun on February 28th. Likely with press credentials.

Rep for the heads up on that Rampage card going down at Mohegan! Had no clue the event was in CT.

Moving back to CT in early Feb. Even if he is over the hill, I have to see 'Page fight live.
