I watched UFC 67 Sunday night and thought it was a great show. I have to say the biggest surprise of the night for me was to see how well Lutter fought. When he mounted Silva, in my opinion, he was 2-3 clean punches away from a ref stoppage, but Silva proved why he was the champ. Closer fight than I thought...well done Travis.
Surprise Surprise Cro Cop won....He wasn’t as awesome as we've seen in the past but he was fighting a scared fighter in my opinion - there was no way he was losing. It is going to be good seeing him fight in the octagon over the next 2 years.....no frills, no after fight party's, just a great mma fighter.
Jackson did well, however he hasn't been the same since his loses to Silva/Rua and i think Chuck would not have too much of a problem with him. As big as the fight will be, I think a Jackson-Tito fight would be more entertaining.....but unlikely. Jackson is a great character and is going to be a crowd favourite at UFC with his “black on black violence” lines.
All in all, UFC bringing these two fighters is a very good thing for the sport. With Cro Cop and Rampage signing on, I feel the average UFC fan might start asking questions like "where did these guys come from?", and educate themselves on the many world class fighters outside of the octagon...this might then lead to many more fans demanding fights against specific fighters etc. Its hard to imagine mma fans who didn’t know who Cro Cop was, and still don’t know who Fedor is! If the sport is to grow in the right way, casual fans need to be educated. Then it is in the promoters interests to give the fans what they want….the best V the best.
Its all about opinions. And this is mine.
It is all about opinions, fair enough. But your opinions don't warrant a seperate thread to the discussion, if this was the case we would have 3000 threads on the same thing. I'm sorry if this offends you, it's not meant to, but there are plenty of threads that are relevant to where you could of posted your thoughts.
There is no point in having twelve of basically the exact same thread with different wording on the front page all the time, there really isn't.
I don't want you to think i'm singling you or anybody out, but I'm moving this to the lounge, the reason i'm explaining is because a number of people have been getting upset with me moving their threads there, so here's the explanation as to why beforehand.
If and when we get a merge function implemented, then people should not be suprised to see these types of threads merged with one another in the future.
To thread starter this is not meant to really be directly aimed at you but more so to the rest of the board also.
