    Main card starts in about 20 minutes. I'll PM you guys links if you need one.
     
  2. Who's going to be watching this then? Is it just me and Ziggler?
     
  3. Stopspot mentioned it in my status I posted.. so maybe him.

    Hey, if not it won't be the first time me and one other guy were discussing a UFC event lol.

    The last UFC PPV was just me and Seabs for about 5 or 6 pages
     
  4. I guess people aren't into UFC. I want to get into watching UFC, so I guess this is the perfect time.

    Just me and you, hey? :otunga:
     
  5. Seabs and Crayo generally watch the PPVs.. we should get some more interest in the PPV next week with Jon Jones fighting Rashad Evans.

  6. The stadium looks nice :). Hopefully you can teach through the steps of UFC, sometime :otunga:.
     
  7. If you have any question about anything feel free to ask. I love new fans who are willing to learn about the sport and am more than happy to fill you in on anything I can.

    First fight prediction: Picket by submission. Probably a choke, perhaps a guillotine.

    The little guys are non-stop action, so it should be a good fight.
     
  8. Ah, thank you very much mate. It's great to see that you're offering to help.

    I don't know any of these UFC fighters, shows the lack of knowledge I have of UFC. All in all, I expect something entertaining :).
     
  9. These two are going at it. Great pace

    Page was winning the standup IMO, but he probably lost the round by getting taken down 4 times. 10-9 Picket

    Also this crowd is hot

    __________

    Honestly you would have to be a hardcore MMA fan to know most of these guys. Casual fans probably only recognize maybe half of the names on the card.
     
  10. That was a nice double leg slam, so far the match is going good :).
     
  11. Damn, dropped his ass with that left
     
  12. Wow, that was a shot. I thought that match was going to be over.
     
  13. Goddamn what an uppercut

    __________

    Rear naked choke. Page was gassed.

    Great showing for Picket. He should be in line for a 135 lb title shot soon.

    Really exciting fight to start the card though.
     
  14. Very nice uppercut. It's an entertaining fight thus far.
     
  15. I don't really know much about John Maguire.. he only has one fight in the UFC. I've never really been impressed with Johnson, so idk what to expect from this fight.

    __________

    UFC is worse than WWE with all of these damn commercials.

    __________

    Great exchange on the ground there

    __________

    lol Bret Hart is this guys hero

    __________

    Really nice groundwork from both guys.. tough round to score.. I'll give it to Macguire 10-9

    __________

    Macguire looks like he could make 155 easily. He should try his hand as a lightweight IMO

    __________

    Wow that was a fucking great transition to the armbar.

    Really fun fight, lot's of great technical work on the ground
     
  16. Just put it on, not sure what fight I'm watching but the guy with black / brown hair is throwing some decent kicks.
     
  17. Siver vs Nunes. Basically a kickboxing match, but a good first round (I scored it for Siver)

    Siver is the one in white shorts btw

    __________

    Nunes was winning the round early, but Siver came on late

    20-18 Siver. Who knows how the judges have it though

    __________

    Great fight, I'd give it to Siver but wouldn't be surprised either way

    Paulo Thigao by sub

    __________

    did I say Paulo Thiago by sub? I meant he was going to get dropped by a short right while charging in like a moron
     
  18. Sakara wins via G n P
