the biggest thing i noticed about watching my first fight was that i threw hardly any leg kicks, and yet the ones i did throw were effective. both these guys threw a couple at most leg kicks each with good results. what the ****? that first one nelson landed looked like it put the hurt on wren... and yet he didnt go to town on an obvious weakness.
TBH it looked like a fairly skilless haymaker fest between a couple of out of shape blobbies. Lol at people talking about Roys boxing, yeah its good compared to some of these other guys but seriously? this HW season was a fucking terrible idea imo if they are trying to reach new audiences.
I was also surprised at the lack of kicks when the ones that were thrown worked so well. Maybe they were both afraid to be taken down after a kick or something?
Some guys just aren't suited to kick... and it was blatantly evident that Nelson barely knows how. That first kick he threw had the form and grace of a 60 year old stroke victim. Wren on the other hand threw a solid one.
I had the fight 1-1. The first round was close and the second was beyond clear for Nelson. If there was any doubt just look at Wren's face in the post fight interview...
Anyway, what the hell is Dana on? That nonsense about Roy almost getting KO'd, and then saying that Roy had no part of making it an exciting fight? How can you have an exciting fight if one guy doesn't want it to be? Answer - You can't.
All in all interesting episode... and the chicken prank was pretty damned funny I thought.
They kept it standing because they respected each other's ground game. Roy can move that belly. Wren missed a lot. His tank paid for that, then his face in the second.
LOL @ "tried to make that one more exciting for you Dana"
Well it was a pretty lame episode and fight. This season has to be the worst!
Yeah I had the fight 1-1, but it wasn't robbery, and when I saw Dana talking about the fight, before the decision was announced, I knew Nelson had gotten it.
Incidentally, unless Wren is hurt it would be absolute bullshit for Kimbo to get another fight, if anyone gets hurt Wren should replace him; he won a submission victory, Kimbo got dominated.
And god I want Nelson to win this whole thing, it pisses Dana off so much.
you mean Kimbo's not coming back?!?
I thought rd1 was too close to call. Nelson was controlling the fight more but Wren came closest to finishing and inflicted the most damage. The second was all Nelson.
Dana is looking really childish. If he doesn't like Nelson then fine, but be a professional and save it till the cameras are off.
I had it 19, 19 too but I wasn't watching with a judge's eye for the most part.
Remember, you have to score on Damage first and foremost. Nelson did pitty-pat himself some points in the first, but it shouldn't have offset the fact that Wren landed the heavier shots and did the most to finish in the first 5 minutes.
Are you fucking kidding me? With scoring ability like yours, you would probably be eligible to work as a UFC judge.
