Kinda because in the beginning of round 2 in the first fight, john used touching up as a means to secure an arm drag
Furreal though, if your erection lasts longer than four hours, you'll get a bloodclot in the dorsal vein and they'll have to cut that **** off.
Cut it off.
Cut your dick, off.
After I learned that, I just couldn't make four hour jokes anymore.
What a terrible fight. The big guy ran out of gas a minute into the first round? The other guy wasn't impressive either. I would have declared a double loss, eliminating both of them from the show.
Some one should have brought some oxygen into the ring with all the time they spent trying to catch thier breath.
Helio Gracie rolled over in his grave after watching them work on the ground. Both their chins were up and hands down. I didn't see little man winning either, over all I was embarrassed to watch this fight with my roommate. Maybe they were both too tired from training though.
Well, if kimbo wins next week. He's gonna have earned his spot.
Fighters on TUF always gas out quick due to the whole short notice thing. This is going to be doubly so for heavyweights. We're gonna have more of the same to look forward to.
As for Kimbo and Nelson: I don't know what much about Nelson's stand-up other than he got knocked out by Arlovski, but Big Country's big gut is gonna suck the life out of him if the fight goes past a minute or two. If Kimbo can keep it standing, I see him taking it. If the fight goes to the ground at any point, Kimbo's gonna get raped.
"Big black buck"?
The fight was really bad.
At this point I do not remember their names, just that the shorter of the two seemed to have suffered from spasm attacks within the first round while standing. It was quite a scene to watch. Not to mention his haymakers which would miss by what literally seemed like a mile.
The man needs to seriously work on his stand up. First lesson, keep a good stance while attacking. Then he can go on to more advanced techniques, like the jab. *rolls eyes*
The football player needs to learn at least some basics of the stand up game. Like going on the offensive, or hell, learn some defensive tactics. As for his ground game, learn how to perform a proper takedown. Followed by lessons on how to perform a proper mount.
They both need A LOT of work on their cardio.
The fight was simply awful. Fortunately, it looks as though next weeks episode will feature a better fight.
Actually Roy Nelson has always fought with a big gut like that, and he usually doesn't gas. I don't see him losing against kimbo. I think he will trade with him for a while and then take it to the ground. Nelson's ground game is probably better than anyone in that house, including the coaches. His biggest problem is his standup, and that isn't too bad.

I see Kimbo getting choked out in the second round because Roy is going to stand the whole first round just to show everyone that he can.
