Wow, for the most stacked card in some time, it sure as hell didnt deliver.
Nothing to say about the first fight of the main card. Who gives a fuck about flyweights?
Maia/Fitch was an extremely boring grapple-fuck. Fitch looked slow, lacked any explosiveness, and obviously cant gameplan for shit. How the fuck was he so unprepared for the take down? Only thing impressive about him in that fight was his sub defense. This fight proves that Fitch will never get another shot at the belt.
Overeem…what the fuck. Was winning the fight without even really trying, and then his cockiness and lack of respect for Big Foot’s power gets him KTFO. The HW division is so uninteresting to me right now. Big Foot is good but will never hold the belt. I dont care to see it change hands between JDS and Cain, and while Reem has the potential to shake things up still, hes gonna have to start from scratch again. This time i hope he checks his fuckin ego at the cage door.
Was never much of a Rashad of lil Nog fan, and this fight didnt change my mind. Rashad showed that he is still the exact same fighter who got KTFO by Machida. Scared to really engage in the striking, and his wrestling is not as dangerous as many believe. Nog is Nog, not bad but not great. He’ll likely never contend for the belt. If he does he gets hurt.
The main even was probably the best fight but still left something to be desired. By the end of the third it was becoming clear that Edgar was beginning to catch onto Aldo’s game. It baffles me that Aldo made NO ADJUSTMENTS. He quit leg kicking, and relied on countering with the jab the entire fight. How the fuck did he think that was gonna put Edgar away? Im also baffled that he didnt chop Edgar’s legs down with kicks throughout the first 2 rounds while he was still fresh. Had he done this, that fight would have looked much different.
Cant fucking stand watching 5 rounds of Edgar and his “amazing footwork.” Yeah hes got heart, but his style is boring, hes a point-fighter, and he never does anything differently.
Overall i wish i hadnt even left the house for this one. I expected some awesome moments out of this card based on all the names attached to it. Unless you are a Big Foot fan, i dont think it delivered.
