B class rules you cant punch to the head on the ground, no knees to the head, no knees on the ground and no elbows... Think there are more but those are the important ones

Yeah I do.. she gave me a beat down just the other day. You would've seen her sweet as throw in her video then?

I thought about signing up from the contender but as you may be able to tell from my video my ground game is pretty average. Considering signing up to fight ICNZ10 in Palmy though.

Still got tickets for Pride of the Shore for anyone who's keen.

Anyone catch the UFC on Versus fights? I've only been able to track down the end of the Vera/Jones fight... fuckin hell that elbow was vicious.

Keen for Cain vs JDS to happen!

Yeh watched all the fights last night.
Santos Vs Gonzaga wasn't bad but the others were slow/timeouts/mismatched hence there was no Fight of the night.
They broadcast perm card John Howard Vs Dan Roberts before vera/jones which was decent, but you didn't miss too much.
Bring on Sunday :D :D

Not too suprised with the Versus main event results - I had Jones and Dos Santos picked.

That Jones elbow was sickening / awesome.

UFC 111 picks for Sunday (some of these are real hard to pick but hey..)

GSP over Hardy
Carwin over Mir
Saunders over Ellenberger
Fitch over Alves
Miller over Boceck

Stoked for this card!

My picks are the same but I have Mir taking Carwin. I'm real gutted about Alves being out of the fight, he's one of my favourite fighters and he hasn't fought since GSP destroyed him at UFC 100.

Looks like that elbow from Jones did a bit of damage..

Brandon Vera will undergo facial surgery on Thursday evening to correct a dislocated cheekbone incurred in his first-round defeat to Jon Jones at UFC on Versus 1 last Sunday, said his manager Matt Stansell.

In the light heavyweight bout, Jones took Vera down two times, then landed a left elbow directly to Vera’s face. The 32-year-old fighter spun to his knees for cover, as referee Herb Dean stepped in to halt the bout.

“It broke his cheekbone in three places and it’s sort of floating right now,” said Stansell on Thursday. “(The bone) is kind of laying on the muscle of the right eye, which is preventing Brandon from looking to his right, and it’s pushing his eyeball forward.”

Stansell said two plates will be inserted during the surgery to secure the bone back in place. Vera, who hails from his own Alliance Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., hopes to return to grappling training in six to eight weeks. Stansell estimated it could take anywhere between four to six months before Vera will be medically cleared to spar again, though that timetable is determinant on the fighter’s recovery.

Stansell said Vera, a noted muay Thai stylist in the 205-pound ranks, is in positive spirits and anxious to return to competition as soon as he is cleared to.

“Brandon told the doctor to do whatever he needed to get him back in the cage as fast as he could,” said Stansell. “I’ve never seen him so motivated to get back to training and fighting before.”

Vera, who’s fought for the promotion since 2005, has been defeated in his last two Octagon appearances. After a strong four-fight start, he is now 7-5 for the promotion. Vera has at least three fights remaining on his current UFC contract, said a source.

GSP over Hardy in round 2-3 via tko

Carwin over Mir in round 1 (Although I'd like to see it go into round 2 and check out what Carwin has on the wrestling front)

Fitch over Saunders in via decision. (Really wanna see Fitch vs GSP again as Fitch is one of my favourites in that division)

Yeah man mean as throw, throws seem to be only good if you can capitalise on it with a good ground game and Deney has just that.



Have been pretty keen to have a go at ICNZ ( after i work my striking lol, its piss poor) leaving nz to train fulltime in japan for 5 months so Il have hoon on it when I get back and hopefully don't get knocked out before I can close the gap :(


Gutted about Carwin - Mir but GSP - Hardy was awesome, Hardy is officialy made of rubber or the liquid flexi steel from terminator

UFC 111 showed how important wrestling is in MMA. Hardy and Saunders are both very good standing up but got taken to school by their respective opponents. You can't display your stand up when you can't stand up. haha

Definately have more respect for Hardy after nearly having his arm ripped off twice and not giving up. I think GSP didn't really want to break his arm which i think he probably could have with that kimura.

Also Carwin is a beast. Would be good to see him vs Velesquaz (spelling?) to decide the real no. 1 contender.

New series of Ultimate Fighter is actually looking to be good - had low expectations based on the fact I don't really give a shit about Chuck or Tito these days, but the prelim fights were excellent, including some nasty KO's and the worst broken nose of all time!

Lot of speculation about Tito possibly having to withdraw from this Season from Illness - we'll see.

Also, Fight Night 21 saw Kenny Florian pretty much destroy Gomi and Big Country Roy Nelson wreck Stevan Struve's shit right up. The size difference in those guys was freakshowish - but Nelson put him dude with a huge overhand right.

112 next weekend!

TUF 11 does actually look quite good. Kinda surprised as I had written it off because of the coaches. That nose... holy shit!

I really wish a local channel would pick up the TUF series, maybe Sky box or something. If it proved to be popular it would be an excuse to pick up fight night and other UFC shows.

Picks for 112?

Anderson Silva vs Damian Maia
BJ Penn vs Frankie Edgar
Matt Hughes vs Renzo Gracie
Terry Etim vs Rafael Dos Anjos
Kendal Grove vs Mark Munoz

Terry Etim vs Rafael Dos Anjos
Kendal Grove vs Mark Munoz

Title fights should be walks in the park for both champs (stranger things have happened though) - undercard is a bit unpredictable. Should be fun though. My main card picks were 100% for both 110 and 111 - fingers crossed!

I have to take Silva against Maia, but if you like Maia's chances then get to bodog.com and place a bet because he's +700 to win. Stranger things have happened (Forrest beating Shogun, Serra beating GSP)...

I'll also take BJ over anyone he fights (in his own weight class) as the dude is just amazing. Diego Sanchez is a great fighter and Penn made him look like an amateur. Frankie Edgar is good but he got this title shot by beating Sean Sherk a couple of fights ago and then beating Matt (who?) Veatch. How he got this shot is anyone's guess because Gray Maynard beat Edgar (as well as Nate Diaz, Roger Huerta, Jim Miller and Rich Clementi) and hasn't had a look in. Logic has never been the UFC's highest point, but this is a bit of a WTF.

I'm a bit gutted about Hughes vs Gracie as I hate Matt Hughes but don't see him losing this. Matt has made his career out of crowding BJJ dudes with good top control and winning a bunch of boring fights. I don't see Renzo having anything to trouble him. In fact, Renzo has done interviews talking about how he punches like a girl and the key to winning this fight is his guard. Renzo, please work some fucking takedown defense and striking because the only way to beat Matt is stop his takedowns then knock him the fuck out. I predict a boring fight with Hughes tea-bagging Renzo the whole time then thanking god in his post fight speech.

Rafael Dos Anjos is a beast but I like Terry Etim's chances. This is gonna be FOTN and I see Etim winning a hard fought decision.

I hope for a double KO with Munoz and Grove, but if that doesn't happen I'd settle for Kendall being put to sleep. Don't think it'll happen though. Grove by spastic looking technique of some kind.

On the undercard, I like Phil Davis, Paul Taylor, Nick ShitShack, anyone fighting DeMarques, Paul Kelly, and I'd like Mostapha Al Turk to at least have one fight when he doesn't get kicked in the nuts or poked in the eye. I think, however, that John Madsen will do both.

See you at 4Kings!

BJ Penn defeated ?????? 8O 8O 8O - Congrats to F. Edgar, thats shit was amazing.

A. Silva via snoozefest - had him in round 1 and maybe 2, but then danced around like Richard Symonds on E... Unconvincing win.


Both my Munoz and Penn picks were wrong - meh, I'm still 13-2 for main card picks in the last 3 ppv's - roll on Machida vs Shogun 2!

It was definately 48-47 (could have gone either way) - like you say, 50-45 was disgraceful.

MMA needs a judging overhaul.
