one of those refs is retarded...30-27 in the maia fight and another 30-27 in the nunes fight too
I can almost guarantee his name was cecil peoples. Horrible ref. Horrible judge.
damn missed the fights. read the results but how were the fights?
Great fights IMO. Lots of back and forth action that really should've gone 5 rounds. The athletes are getting better. 3 rounds ending with 2 fresh fighters doesn't feel complete. 5 rounders ftw.
- Am I the only one who thought Carwin's corner was just fucking fucking terrible? like damn... no technical advice, it's just show what's your made of n etc bullshit. He looked helpless against Junior. He shouldve went for a broke in the 3rd round.
- Maia caved in after his impressive performance in the first round after tasting Munoz' power... oh yeah i saw Rafael celebrating with Munoz. didn't he help Maia to train in Vegas at Wandy's gym? like wtf... oh well, i guess the business is business.
-Kenny did just what i thought he would do.
- OMG OMG.... seeing Yves getting KTFO'd just crushed my heart to thousands of pieces. Sam was impressive though
Yeah I was really hoping to see Yves make a comeback. One of my fave fighters. I think he was just too confident against stout feeling like his striking was superior. He paid the price. My heart kinda sank but I gave hella props to Stout for being all class.
Kenny will not be able to handle Aldo if he could barely handle Nunes. It's that simple. A healthy Aldo is going to make kenny try to drop to 125. LOOOOL
I'm super impressed with Maia. I'm disappointed that he died out from the middle of the 2nd. I still can't believe how well he did on the feet. And Choppz, Munoz is affiliated with KINGS MMA so Cordeiro is gonna be happy for him even if at one point he worked with Maia. You're right. Business is business. IMO, in fight sports friendship needs to take a back seat. It's a competition not a personal beef.
About Carwin's corner....what would you tell Carwin after seeing that he has no chance? He tried for the TD. Stuffed. He tried the KO punch. Dodged. He tried to box. He got battered. LOL. Nah but you're right. They need to think on their feet and readapt on the fly. If plan a isn't working, go to b. Then c, then d, and so on. It's like they literally only had 2 plans. Stand and bang or take him down. Neither worked and they ran out of ideas. I think JDS would've won either way though.
who's a better wrestler cain or shane?
Cain by a longshot.
^ Cains a better wrestler for sure and a better overall fighter than Carwin... Cain is faster on his feet with better stand up, better wrestling, better JJ and better cardio/training.. JDS is going to have his hands full with Cain but Cain better prepare for JDS's boxing! But i have Cain winning this fight against JDS..
IDk man. Long layoffs are bad for fighters. I have yet to see a fighter come back from a long lay off and look great. Meanwhile, JDS just got a huge confidence boost. JDS has better boxing than Cain. JDS also showed great take down defense, but also the ability to stand back up. That could pose a serious threat. If Cain wasn't coming off a layoff, I would have him winning. But ring rust is a factor. Either way it's going to be a great fight.
