Biggedt upset in Las vegas MMA betting history ...I'd even bet on it
A 21 to 1 underdog gets a first one KO on one of the best LHVYS ib the world IMO. Un-freakin-baleeevable!

Yea after that it seems that way. Maybe a lucky punch... you never know...

Was a great fight though not making excuses probs to Soko!

I'm still shocked though.

Theres only two explinations.

1. It was a lucky shot.

2. He threw a low right kick, a high right kick, then a low right kick, and another high right kick. Nog is known to be a great amatuer boxer and trains in Cuba with the Olympic team. Potentially Rameau threw the high kicks to get Lil Nog to bob under boxing style, and threw a wild left hook. I'm leaning towards fluke, but it could also have been a masterful ploy. Clearly what Rameau need was to train with a decent school in Team Quest, as hes a physical specimen and has a ton of natural ground fighting ability, as displayed in his sparring with Hendo on his intro video.

Regardless, I wish I put $20 on him.

I'm guessing from the way he acts pissed off at people all the time.

And he does seem like a-hole to some people.

I kinda feel the same way, but I don't hate him.

I have never and will never understand all of the love that Wandy gets.I find him completely unlikeable as a person, but won't deny that he is a good fighter, which made Hendo knocking his rabid ass out that much sweeter for me.I can't remember the last time I enjoyed watching someone hit the canvas that much.Good card tonight, and I almost want to personally mail Henderson a thank you card and gift package for that awesome highlight reel which I'll probably watch a million times.

Why you dislike Wandy so much?




I dislike Wandy basically for the reasons which Shackle stated.I understand that he is an exciting fighter, but I recall a thread in Sherdog a while back about people feeling bad for a fighter, and people kept mentioning feeling soo sad when Wandy got KO'ed by Crocop.He makes almost all of his fights personal, and he grabs ropes and tries to stomp peoples skulls in!How bad can you possibly feel for a guy like that?When Rampage challenged him for his belt (in a totally non-disrespectful way,IMO) he jumped in the ring and threw what appeared to be a total roid rage!I know,these are fighters, not politicians or PR reps, but they're still ambassadors for a sport which is trying to gain mainstream acceptance, and I think he is a piss-poor representative at that.Many better fighters carry themselves with much more honor and modesty.

Yeah seems so. Rameau may get a title shot soon after that it was a dominating performance.

Damn 2-2 now! 2 shocking upsets already.

lol. Lil Nog title shot going down the drain. We got a new rising star.




I think you're exaggerating a little.. or actually a lot. There was no domination. Sokoudju(sp?) just caught Lil Nog with a good punch on the right spot.

It barely said anything about the guy. I don't think we got a new rising star but I like to see him in the future. He's got to prove himself a few more times and spend a longer time in the ring before I get my hopes up for this dude.

I don't think Jason Lee will be the next big thing either.
