    i love that you feel you're "finally reaming" me the proper way.
    This is why your shitty country is closer to the bottom than to the top.

    What is it about Rashad Evans that I'm not seeing, I dont rate him at all. Only Anderson Silva can upend Jones now, although as Henderson says he gets injured an awful lot lately.

    My thoughts on the PPV:

    On one hand, the semi-main was a beautiful example of BJJ in reaction, not to mention literally snatching victory from the jaws of defeat. On the other hand, it was performed by Frank Mir, whom I hate so much that I am told "hate waves" can be seen radiating off me when I talk about him on cloudy days. Very conflicted!

    On the other hand, the people who are shrieking about Mir breaking the arm need to quiet down. Nog doesn't start tapping until AFTER Mir snaps his arm. I'll go further out on my limb and say that Nog would have never tapped unless Mir went for the break. Because Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Is A Warrior.

    The main event:
    Was I the only one wishing for soccer kicks and knees to the head when Jones came out in his Monkey Kung Fu stance? Machida did back him off with some of those karate barrages, but that led into one of the problems anyone fighting JBJ is going to have:
    "To heck with this kickboxing! I'm gonna take you down and elbow you in the face for a bit."

    And the main problem I have with Jones is not so much him, I like his wacky unorthodox fight finishing style, as I stated earlier in the thread I can't stand Greg Jackson.

    Other Fights:

    Dennis Hallman bringing the UFC 1 style to the 21st century. All that fight needed was Rorion explaining how the keek boxsching represenative is now controlled by the zhou zhitzhou fighter...let this man compete in his blue under roos Dana!

    I am intrigued by this Croatian fellow. With Igor V, Mirko, and now Fedor on the downward slide there is a serious lack of Ivan Drago knock offs in MMA. Perhaps this Igor P. can rectify the situation.

    Did not expect the Korean Zombie fight to go down that way. From what I can tell, his style is to walk straight into crisp striking combinations with his head held high, which should have fit nicely into Hominick's style of, well, throwing crisp striking combinations.

    seems to me that nog didn't respect mir's jiu jitsu. he could have been a lot more conservative on the ground.

    Kesting does a play by play of the Mir vs Nog fight, also illustrates the limited options for movement from the Kimura that Mir had on Nog. (7.30)

    He's extremely quick and has the most seamless transitions from striking to wrestling.
    I think he has a chance.

    The real question begging to be answered is this:

    How the **** is Big Nog going to open his Christmas presents?

    When exactly did you become a credible poster with smart things to say?

    I must have missed the memo.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    Man, sometimes Mir just confuses me. So where does this put him? Gate keeper? Contender for the belt? Somewhere in between?

    He's not. I bet he copied paste this from some other forum.
