From the Renan Barao interview:
What, other than WINNING, are you using for motivation for the fight?
I need to give a house to my mother, she is so poor.


Heh.

This will be WEC's last event, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship has already begun absorbing the WEC fighters to showcase on UFC shows.

Picks, how they will win?

Actually, I was thinking that Pettis must have been playing too much Def Jam FFNY. I can't find a good clip on youtube, I wish I had a way to capture footage off my tv.

Edit:
YouTube - Def Jam Fight for NY: End of the Line (My favorites Blazin' and Grapple moves) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3eUbQp3Azc)

Once around 0:40, and a couple other times here and there.

good one, I was actually thinking of The Matrix when Trinity cart wheels off the wall and Van Damme's roundhouse kicks in Blood Sport. I foresee a day when fighters pull off Zangief type moves.

While that kick was admittedly fucking awesome, I can't help but wonder how many crappy McDojang TKDers are going to use that video as a way of justifying their own shitty techniques and near-worthless tippy-tappy point sparring.

(God, I'm so jaded...)

Damn, I wonder what was going on in his mind at that point: "You know what, I'm gonna runjump at him, bounce off the fence as he dodges and flykick him right in the face!! This is going to be awesome."

I was actually thinking the same thing when I saw that happen. On one hand I thought "holy ****... he fuckin' did that, not only in competition, but to win the fuckin' belt" and "holy ****, now TKD guys around the world are going to claim they DO have the DEADLY" and I almost had an aneurysm.

I just don't know where all this wall running is going to lead. Will there be wall run flying takedowns soon? LOL.

I'm happy to see we all reacted appropriately to this.
