Guidaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

Stand up win, for a stand up guy. Besides BJ Penn, he is one of the nicest MMA fighters I have ever met/chilled with.

He did, but if you listen Rogan kept on saying in the background that you can not rule or Silva until the very end.

And look what happen? Silva's Brazilian Jiu Jitsu shinned in the end to set up that triangle...

Also, Jon Fitch is on fire right now. I just hope he improves on his strength training. I want to see him fight more standing then on the ground..

Maybe Silva didn't even train for this fight? He didn't look that sharp. He was throwing haymakers. WTF was that ? The most precise fighter in history throwing blows like that? Hmmm something doesnt sound right



He did not look normal at all, this is why I actually believe him that he has a rib injury.

Ya, his takedown defense was NOT there in this fight, and I have a feeling that it's because spreading eagle to stop a take-down may put heavy pressure on the ribs.

Silva wasn't his twisty, dodgy ol' self either (except for in round 4), and he was lying flat on his back instead of curling up and staying close to Sonnen as per his usual mounted defense.

One day, we'll see a rematch. But probably not before GSP.

how does he not bleed?

maybe sonnens punches were that weak..


He was pacing himself for 5 rounds. You can't throw knock-out punches and keep going at the pace he was pushing for 5 straight rounds. Silva also has really good head movement, so a lot of the force is absorbed.

Silva had already started to test the waters on that triangle in round 4, and come round 5 you could see that he was trying to set up the submit almost immediately from the moment he was put on his back. It was a good call to wait til the later rounds to start setting in submits too, it can be really hard to submit a guy in the early stages of a fight when they still have their strength and aren't winded yet.

Great fight overall.

grabs at his rib and says something...i usually don't believe fighters after a less than sub par performance when they claim an injury...but i believe him here.

I heard Kimbo is fighting Kenny Florian next and the winner fights Chael Sonnen for Andersons belt.

Good call on the rib injury discourse. All makes sense now.

King Mo and Bobby Lashley? Some people lost some bets this weekend.


Posted by Nerologic on Aug-23-2010 20:07:

I can't wait to see Penn fighting back at 100%!

so excited for toney- couture. just to finally see two top guys from boxing and mma go head to head... might not answer the big question but itll be entertaining as hell.

hopefully frankie takes the main event, he deserves to be the champ.


Posted by iammesol on Aug-28-2010 17:37:

Here we go:


Penn
Couture
Maia
Diaz
Lauzon

Diaz vs. Davis is going to be SICK though.


Posted by Boomer187 on Aug-28-2010 17:42:

Watching some pre fight stuff...toney is my fav fighter right now! He has an amazing talk game.

This should be a good night o fights.

I always think this says the MDMA thread. I doubt that MMA & MDMA pair well together though.

I can not imagine that at all. lol

118 should be good.

The preliminary card doesn't have a lot of name value, but it's well matched. Piece-Alves is an interesting bout between a fairly impressive Brazilian prospect and a very tough underrated fighter in Pierce. Dan Miller has a must-win matchup with John Salter, but Miller struggles when he isn't the better wrestler, and Salter is quite good in that area. Osipczak-Soto is a little inexplicable given their recent and divergent results against Matt Riddle, but Soto should look better with the benefit of a full training camp. Winner-Lentz is an interesting little fight between two guys flying under the radar at 155; I think Lentz wins yet another fight that he isn't supposed to. Finally, Gabe Ruediger might surprise some TUF noobs against Joe Lauzon; I project a close decision which goes to Joe.

As for the main card, Marcus Davis looked pretty horrible in his last two bouts, so I think his age has caught up with him. So, I think Nate Diaz plunks him early. Mario Miranda has the skills to make things interesting against Demian Maia, but I have to think it eventually winds up on the ground and from there it's probably just a matter of time. Maynard-Florian is maybe the most interesting bout on the card, and I think the result depends largely on the extent to which Maynard follows a prudent, if unexciting, gameplan. James Toney is brain damaged and shouldn't be permitted to fight in boxing, much less MMA where he has no experience. And, finally, I'd like to see Frankie Edgar win again; the guy gets no respect and it's BS. However, it's going to be tough, as I think Penn will mix things up and be less predictable this time around, and it was really Penn's predictability that did him in last time.

James Toney the other day:

You will see how James Toney boxes. You will see that James Toney hits hard. You will see why James Toney hardly ever gets hit. As far as takedowns come, I welcome them. If he tries to take me down, it's going to be a short night for him. A very short night.

couture had no fucking challenge
