    Nothing a little quality JDS time can't cure. If Nog's punches were able to wobble Mir...

    Sorry, but watched it last night, don't remember.

    Fairly in the beginning, though, I think.

    Even though I was betting on Jones and gambled in his favor. I had a nagging feeling that Machida may pull off the upset here.
    Thankfully, I went with my first inclination and came out $40 ahead ( my friend is a krotty nutrider lol).
    I felt bad for Mark Hominick. It just goes to show how important it is to do all the little things right, especially when you are facing that level of competition.
    I don't think it was an easy night for him in any case, or for anyone in his corner, since they were without Tompkins for the first time.
    I think he will recover.
    Tough evening for Canadians overall ( 2-7 on the night).

    Machida looked great standinging up, but he looked a bit sloppy in his grappling. Even Jones said he expected more movement from him, being a black belt in Jujitsu. I thought he'd be able to escape his guillotine. I'm probably just disappointed because the first round got me pumped up to see Machida win.

    I love Machida. And I was REALLY pulling for him in this fight, and certainly his striking has been the most effective yet against Jones. However, all of you saying that it would have ended in a KO for Machida seem to forget that Jones's submission came off of a Lyoto knock down off of Johnny's left.

    Here's the harsh reality:

    Machida is a great striker - that said, both Jones AND Shogun have shown that he is exposed to a good counterpunch himself, due to the fact that he wades in vertical with his chin out. He needs to fix this, or his career is going to go the way of all the other great strikers who have gotten glass-jawed from too many clips and drops. For his sake, and for mine as a fan.

    I couldn't disagree more. His clinch work is and was fantastic, and had Jones been 3 inches shorter he might have caught him with some of his attempted clinch-TDs. But Bones is very experienced and knows how to balance, plus his limbs give him freak-of-nature sensitivity.

    While I'm not so certain Machida would have gotten the KO either, when Bones's left knocked him down he was already completely out of it after the elbow that cut him open on the ground. You could see when they stopped the fight momentarily that he wasn't all there, and when they resumed the grappling probably wore him down further.

    Again, I'm not saying he would have definitely won. But if the ground work and elbow from that position hadn't happened, he would not have gone down like that.

    Also, that Ortiz/Lil Nog was crazy. Ortiz had no response while Lil Nog just kept beating the **** out of him. I felt like I was watching a documentary about the Rwandan Genocide and the ref was the international community.

    Seeing Big Nog's arm get snapped like that was intense, but he definitely brought it on himself. I was (pleasantly) surprised to see him do so well against Mir in the standup department, though.

    You know guys, even though it's a non-issue, really,
    but I am sad when I think that the kids of today see people who do this after fights:












    I think I miss the guy who did this after fights:

    I don't know how you can say that. The left was vicious and right on the button. He seemed tired, not badly concussed. If you get hit flush on the button like that, sorry, you're going down. How quickly you get back up is a matter of mental state and conditioning.

    For me the surprise is completely the reverse. Nog is the accomplished boxer. As long as he was healthy and in shape, I expected him to land the bigger better cleaner shots and have the crisper form. While Mir is a good grappler, seeing him manage a kimura on someone like Mintauro totally blew me away. That was impressive, and not expected at all.
