I'll admit, I'm not a follower of the MMA stuff, but that was pretty impressive. This guy who was at the table next to us at Hooters lastnight was saying that Brock wolld get his ass handed to him cause the asian guy is supposed to be really badass or some such shit but seeing the two of them standing there, It kinda looked like David vs. Goliath and Goliath finally got his comeuppance by beating the shit outta David.
It's on youtube right now, as is the more entertaining match where Johnnie Morton (yes the former WR for the Chiefs, Lions, etc.) gets KO'd in less than a minute by a stand up comedian. In front of a hometown crowd, no less.
Ahh, I see. The guy that Brockie had last night is not the guy originally scheduled. Click Here (mmaontap.com)
I just saw a replay-of-a-preview for the fight on Showtime, talking about this huge South Korean guy, Hong-Man Choi (7'-2", 350), who was originally supposed to be Brock's opponent. Now that might have been a little more interesting. :-)
(And Brock actually married Sable. I'd missed that update.)
Originally posted by StaggerLeeBrock looked like he had the ground skills we knew he'd have, but his punches didnt look real strong. THen again, with all that weight behind them, they might not have to LOOK mean to BE mean.
Coincidentally, King and J.R. were saying the same thing about Khali's offense last night.. I caught the fight clip, and got the impression that Brock is going to need quite a few 'tomato cans' before he's ready to take on the top guys.
I saw the match and got the impression that Brock's opponent just really, really sucked. He basically just clung on to Brock's waist like a five year old who had just seen a ghost and ran to daddy. Then just stayed there while Brock punched him.
Plus UFC's dominance, some dreadful marketing, utterly bizarre business models and, more recently, Josh Barnett's apparent affection for steroids. Strikeforce seem much wiser than many who went before them so they may do rather better.
