    I hope Bisping beat the fuck out of Nipples/Rashad. Anybody see the weigh ins what a bitch. Bisping wanted to shake hands and instead Rashad pushed him. He is all agressive before a fight but when he gets in the ring he isnt. I dont get it. If rashad wins its cause he laid on bisping for a dec.

    that true steve.. i hope Bisping knocks him out bc he should have lost vs ortiz

    Rashad said Bisping has been running his mouth but I really haven't heard all that much coming from him. At the least, he paid respect to Rashad at the pre fight conference so he should have at least gave the same back. Funny how we all hated Bisping a few days ago until Rashad turned into the dick. What happened anyway, Rashad was always humble and now he is acting like Tito by having to hate all his opponents.

    man the Houston Alexander fight was crazy. Thiago has some power from mount. Pin point accurate. Alexander was too conservative. Now to the main event. I think it could have gone either way. When watching it live I felt that Evans won but I know it could have gone either way. Tommorrow I will probally go bck and think that Bisping won but overall the fights tonite were very technical. I guess Rheinhardt had never been tested in 18 fights because he was panicing before Joe even threw a punch. It was funny cuzs he tapped twice. The first time the ref didnt think he was tapping he went to sleep woke back up and tapped out finally. I want to see Thiago Silva vs Rashad Evans Next.!!!!!

    Steve: Nipples Rashad..lol..

    Now watch everyone start saying Alexander sucks and was way overrated blah blah etc etc.. Did anyone else think Spencer was going to take Edgar?

  7. Morey

    November 17, 2007 at 5:04 pm

    I'll admit that I thought Spencer was going to beat Edgar. I'll tell you why, although Edgar is physically dominant and his fight vs. Griffin was a classic, I thought that Fisher is coming in with more experience and with the confidence of dominating Stout. I had that totally wrong and it was the most disappointing fight of the night for me, I thought it would be closer.

    If anyone has seen Houston's amateur footage, he looks like he hasnt improved his game at all. He is easily mounted and cant defend when he is mounted. I'll admit Thiago was great but at one moment when he put one foot foward, Houston should have trapped the other foot and swept him…but with his inexperience he bucked. Houston is a fan fav so he'll be back again.

    Tell me if you guys see this coming. Rashad/Tito 2 and Bisping/Hamill 2…UFC ??: The Second Coming…or something like that.

    I think Steve is spot on by saying that Houston was too timid and patient…he should have made it rain like he has done in the past.

    I thought Evans won 2 rounds to 1. The reason is that in two rounds he finished stroner than Bisping, but in the 2nd Bisping finsihed stronger. Judges in the UFC seem to be really prejudice on when you are in control. You can be dominating the first three minutes, but the final 2 minutes leave the lasting impression on their minds when they vote.

    I can't believe Houston lost like that. I know people were bitching about this going to be a bad UFC and I thought it had some pretty good matchups. After watching it though I was disappointed for the most part. J Lau was a beast, he is the nerdy guy who will whoop some ass, he impressed me and so did Frankie Edgar, that guy does not stop.

  10. Kash

    November 17, 2007 at 5:22 pm

    I don't even know who Rampage will fight next, everything is so screwed up below him. Does anyone else get the feeling that they might just let the winner of Liddell/Wanderlei get the next title shot?

  11. Leet

    November 17, 2007 at 5:40 pm

    I liked the show. There were a lot of suprises for me like Alexander getting pounded out and Fisher getting handled. And did you guys see the new ring girl….damn, no questions on how she got that position.

  12. Joe

    November 17, 2007 at 6:15 pm

    From the sounds of things on the forums and articles, I'm glad I went with my instincts saved my money. After reading what Leet just said, I'm a little upset that I missed the ring girl though. Oh well, next time.

    Not sure who will fight Rampage. What do you guys think?…Griffin, Liddell, Wanderlei, Machida, Sokoudjou, Jardine? I guess we'll have a better perspective after UFC 79.

  13. Morey

    November 17, 2007 at 6:19 pm

    Ramp is hurt, he wont fight till march. I think Joe is right we will find out in a month or so. Personally, there is no clear #1, so I think if Wandi wins Chuck, he gets the next title shot. Other than that…who knows…maybe Chuck if he wins. The ring girls was nice…extra small outfit for sure. Wonder what happened with Ali?

  14. Kash

    November 17, 2007 at 6:32 pm

    lol Leet. Its good to know someone knows the finer points of a UFC…

  15. KOPower

    It was a decent UFC. The best thing about it was it answered a lot of questions for me. 1…Edgar is pretty damn good. 2…Houston is one dimensional right now. 3…Rashad and Bisping are not good enough to fight for the title yet. 4…Karo is super strong and imposes his will on his opponents but he lacks stamina in the latter rounds.

    Right now I would say that the LHW scene is so big that I cant even tell you who will get a title shot. I know that I definetly want to see Thiago fight either Forrest Griffin or another real good fighter. I want to see the monster fights they have been talking about making for years. It looks like UFC 79 is on its way to being one of the best UFCs ever. I love the first 3 fights on there. I hope everyone stays healthy. And I hope Tito vs Rashad doesnt happen because the first fight wasnt great. Rematches are great fights not mediocre ones. I picked Frankie to win just because of hw good he did against Tyson G. Ok NOW IMAGINE HOUSTON AFTER HE TRAINED WITH RANDY COUTURE AND the rest of EXTREME COUTURE. Just look at what it did for Forrest Griffin.

    if houston went to extreme couture he would doublemhes skill and become a great fighter..

  18. Morey

    November 18, 2007 at 10:01 am

    I agree, what I saw is a guy who has not really improved on his ground skills since his amateur fights. He's got the strengh, got the striking, now he just needs to grapple his ass off.

  19. Joe

    November 18, 2007 at 10:12 am

    I agree with Steve's last comment. Also, Houston is very raw and I believe a good camp would change everything for him if he's willing to do it. I read that (excluding self training) he only had 6-7 weeks with an actual trainer before the Jardine fight. The guy may have been "exposed" as a lot of people are saying, but it only proved that he doesn't have some of the skill set he could easily devolop. It'll take time but I hope he does it.
