First off let me say ufc 140 was full of surprises. I will give my thoughts about those matches but let me focus on. The two fighters who may not be back in the ufc again.
Tito ortiz falls again in another fight where it starts off going good for him and he ends up well messed up on the canvas. It's being said that he has one fight left and he would like to do that fight. I think he is done he can't take the damage anymore. his striking is about as good as it going get. it was always suppose to be good enough so he could transition into his wrestling. His wrestling is not that good anymore.Physically he is just not the same person. All the injuries may be healed but he can't turn back the clock. I hope he doesn't fight again but if he does. I say a fight with franklin would be good and he might be able to win that. Ending his long career on a high note. Heh he may not be the peoples champ but he still was a ufc champ. Give tito a little bit of respect not a lot but at least a little.
Now on to our next legend who was in the cage tonight big nog. I actually picked him to win this fight. It seemed like it was going happen as well. He had frank hurt and almost finished him. Then he went for a choke lost the dominant position he was in. Lost a ground scramble and frank mir locked on a tight kimura. Big nog refused to tap so he took a lot of damage to his right arm. I'm thinking doesn't that mean his time in the ufc is over? He just recently came back from battling bad injuries in a beautiful brawl. That ended in a victory over brendan schaub. He is 35 and is most likely going to need surgery on that arm. On top of that it's his first time being submitted ever in all of his 42 fights. Frank mir will now be known as the first man to knock out and submit big nog he might become a legend with this win. I know what you guys are saying randy and dan have both fought pretty good past 40. Neither of them have taken the kind of punishment big nog has taken over his career. I just don't think he can come back and compete at this level just like tito his body can't handle it. Tip to all fighters if your going to get down on the ground with mir. Make sure to keep all limbs out of danger. Big nog is now has been added to mir's list of broken limbs. Mir's motto is snap or tap and if i was a fighter i would feel the same way.
On to my thoughts about the rest of the card. Upset of the year has to go to jung chan-sung a.k.a. the korean zombie or zombieyama. Tying for fastest k.o. in ufc history along with being the first man to win with a twister in the ufc he is on a roll. Alot of people are saying he should be next for aldo. I say no let him fight some other people but his first two fights in the ufc have been great. Besides jon jones and dan henderson he may be having the best 2011 of any fighter.
Hallman won but even in victory he acknowledged coming in heavy and gave all props to makdessi. That fight didn't look fair hallman might have been up to 170 come fight night. Hamman may need to change his nickname to the american zombie. He just absorbs so must punishment and he keeps getting up. After taking so many hard and clean hits he just kept getting up. Hamman needs to tighten up his defense and he will be back on track.
K-sos got lit up he started off to slow and igor beat him up bad. I give him his props as well he took a lot of hits before going down. I hope he can rebound after that bad beating. They mentioned he is training at the rain academy same place that jason miller trained at. This place is starting to get a bad name. Hopefully this doesn't mean mark munoz will have a bad performance his next fight out. He trains there as well.
Attonito vs Hecht i felt those elbows hecht stunned him with were illegal what do you guys think? Attonito was bleeding from the back of the head if you can't punch at that spot. Why you can elbow? Someone please explain that to me. On to the fight that i wanted to see more than any other fight on this card. This is what made this card great for me i knew this fight would be boring. I knew it would be a grinding 3 round match. Bocek vs.Lentz i just wanted lentz to lose and he did. Him losing made watching k-sos and hamman get beat down not feel as bad. Then lentz felt cheated and thought that he should have won. Just like when most guys fight him i love it. Lentz Got Lentz’ed mwhahahahahah. I also apologize for this post coming so late i had a lot to drink last night. I feel asleep doing it and finished up when i woke up.
