That was a sloppy fight on Mike's part but he still didn't let Larsen do much, I would love to see a Sam and Mike final but I think it may be Justin Lawrence's to lose. Interested in this week's fight though, can't stand Chris Tickle, what a ******, can't wait for him to get his ass handed to him in the octagon.
Yeah I was pretty high on Chiesa going into that fight, but now I'm less sure. His striking looked pretty rudimentary and honestly he didn't really dominate with his wrestling either.
Watched Episode 3 of TUF Brazil yesterday -- the fight was a little better than the second episode (the finish was really cool) but overall still not great. Also holy crap there is a lot of product placement in the show. Gillette, Xyience, some energy bar company and Ford have all gotten big plugs in so far. Also at the end of the episode JdS showed up at the house and did a public service announcement about Dengue fever Overall though it's a fun show to watch.
Awful decision in the Sicilia/Saunders fight. I had it 20-18 Sicilia, with the first round possibly going to Saunders because of the head kick. There's no way Saunders won the second round.
Yeah I dunno how you score the second round for Saunders given that he clearly got knocked down -- I mean, some people think that justifies a 10-8 round (I don't necessarily agree), so it should definitely *win* you the round unless the rest of the round is pretty one-sided, which it wasn't. That said, Sicilia did screw up big-time by dropping for a guillotine after that knockedown, that pretty much lost him the fight (in addition to the bad judging).
The whole bit with Ronda Rousey in the house was hilarious, those guys did not know how to deal with that at all.
