I'm always impressed how little he brings that up when he is on commentary. Especially with all the eyepoke talk recently.

I think some people (me) still think of Bisping losing an eye as painful karmic retribution for ending Alan Belcher's career with an eye poke

You're thinking the Brunson fight, iirc. Kennedy involved an actual scandal with the stool between rounds - Romero got pieced up a bit in the last 20 seconds or so of round 2 (with Kennedy cheating by holding the gloves) and Romero's corner "forgot" to remove the stool after the second break, and "didn't understand at first" when the ref told them to remove it, thus buying Romero more time to recover.

loving awesome.

huh from wikipedia - this is new information:

quote:

Romero faced Tim Kennedy on September 27, 2014, at UFC 178.[29] He won the fight via TKO in the third round, giving Kennedy his first stoppage loss in thirteen years. This fight generated much controversy: Romero was hurt badly at the end of round 2, and received extra time to recover between rounds. UFC color commentator Joe Rogan mistakenly blamed this on Romero's cornermen for failing to leave the Octagon on time, when the blame was actually on a UFC Cutman who applied too much Vaseline to a cut[citation needed]and referee John McCarthy for allowing Romero to stay sitting while trying to get the cutman to return to the octagon to wipe the excess off. Later it was also noticed that Kennedy was illegally holding Romero's glove while striking him at end of round 2.[30] The win earned Romero his second Fight of the Night bonus award.[31]

I believe that was the Brunson fight. This was the fight where Yoel got rocked (or just gassed? I forget) and fully cheated between rounds to recover. I started out on Kennedy's side and every time he opens his mouth I'm happier Yoel screwed him

Manhoef, as a piece of trivia, has the highest ratio of knockout wins among virtually all MMA fighters with more than ten fights. When I read the figure he had 27 knockouts in 30 fights.

Ratios and Tendency posted:

His other example was Cain's knee collapsing and him not being KOed at all.

That was what I thought when I first watched it, but Cain eats a short uppercut as he clinches and that's enough to buckle him. How much was the punch and how much was his knee is up for argument, but it still had way more effect than it should have.

Stealth Tiger posted:

Do u have the Overeem punch confused with another punch or what because I agree about the Cain punch completely but if I had watched ngannou vs overeem live I would have thought he killed him

Oh, in result it's insane, but it's an offhand arm punch without his body behind it thrown at an opponent who was moving out of range. It wasn't a Jack Dempsey uppercut, or Curtis Blaydes ducking into Lewis' uppercut or anything. Logically, it shouldn't have much on it, but instead it nearly decapitated a very big man.

I think the most impressive thing about Bisping is that he beat the best Anderson Silva to have ever fought inside the octagon... with only one eye.

Truly the middleweight GOAT.

Nah, rockhold has traditionally had exceptional wrestling, especially in the scramble. What he needs is better boxing so he can set up takedowns and execute that game plan instead of getting knocked unconscious repeatedly

Bisping was able to fight with one eye because he kept it quiet and/or lied about it. Now that he's come out and acknowledged that he's blind in one eye, he will never be allowed to fight again, barring perhaps scenarioes involving super villains and barges in international waters/volcano lairs.

He's also 36, coming off two really bad knockouts and hasn't had a win in nearly 4 years. While I'm not saying he can't have a career resurgence as a wrestlefucker, just look at the top of that division.

He not out wrestling

Gastellum
Bobby Knuckes
Derek Brunson
Cannonier
Darren Till

or suriving if he just wants to go full wrestle mode. If he wants to take a few fights against dudes like Weidman or Hall and top up his retirement plan - sure, good luck but at this point putting him against anyone in the top 5 just seems a little cruel and with his injury history I can't see him putting together 2 or 3 good wins to earn a shot.

I had totally forgotten Rockhold and Weidman moving to 205 but their failures kind of make Santos and Adesanya look really impressive trying their hand at 205. Santos is on a slide but he did finish Jan.

On the undercard of the first Toronto UFC 129 there was a guy that had Firstname Lastname Downtown Dental and I forget who it was (both the fighter and the dentist) and it haunts me to this day.

Someone that has fight pass please watch the entire card top to bottom (except the main events) and tell me what was on the man's bum, the fights are all really good too so really I'm doing you a favour.
