Dos Santos is legit. CroCop looked timid for some reason. Dos Santos would get close, and CroCop would kinda strike and them push him away. Guess he was trying to set up for a leg kick. CroCop did land some good shots in round 1 though. JDS is for real. Should move up the HW ranks pretty quickly.
Belfort still has it. Dana talked about Vitor-Silva for MW title, that would be awesome. Didn’t know about Belfort’s sister being kidnapped. Sad.
What did you guys think about Yves Lavigne stopping the Daley/Kampmann fight? Just right? Premature? Lavigne has made some questionable calls the past few cards.[/quote]
Seriously, Crocop always had an “elusive-counter striking” style, but ever since he started in the ufc, he seems incredibly gun-shy and pretty much just defending himself. Maybe he’s been eating too much soy or something… I like Dos Santos, he’s there to fight, showed some nice muay thai and quite young.
Vitor-Silva is going to be a GREAT fight, we’ll get to see a full-powered Anderson again because otherwise he might get his ass kicked. It would be interesting to see if he would change his approach in this fight and maybe grapple a bit more.
And yes, unless Yves Lavigne saw that Kampmann’s eyes were orbiting in opposite directions, I think it was a premature stoppage, maybe he drinks a lot of soy shakes too.
Lastly, the ufc “fans” that go to all the events are the worst ever! What is up with all the fucking booing?!! In reality, they go to witness a car-crash, the ironic part is that probably ONLY .02% of those motherfuckers would EVER engaged or challenged themselves in a fight!! So fucking annoying!
