Not a UFC fan but going over to a friend's house to check out UFC 100 tonight.

I've noticed all over Twitter, WWE and TNA wrestlers are checking out UFC tonight and cheering for Brock Lesnar. I find this odd. True, he's a wrestler, but why do wrestling people root for Lesnar, a guy who was pushed to the moon, quit after three years, and constantly badmouths the wrestling business?

I know little to nothing about UFC, but I'm really interested in the Mir/Lesnar fight.

With that said, I think Mir's gonna beat Lesnar and make it 2-0 over him.

Lesnar hated the WWE lifestyle and probably ended up hating WWE's management, but I don't know that he hated his fellow wrestlers.

Even if they don't like Lesnar, he's been pigeonholed as the represnatitve for all of professional wrestling, kinda treated like a fighting style, but the worst possible one by those in the MMA community. Just like lots of karate experts were surely thrilled when Lyoto Machida won as 'proof' about their style, Lesnar's become the same. Just a bit more unwillingly, but it doesn't seem like a label he can punch away.

There is still a lot of sentiment floating around that "Because Lesnar was a pro wrestler, he can't possibly be any good at real fighting." (These are the people who somehow think that a few years making $$ as an athletic entertainer erased his amateur wrestling background.) I'm pretty sure it's still a sore spot among many pro wrestlers that, just because they're entertainers, that doesn't mean that they're incapable of being athletes.

Q/D results:

Heavyweight Championship unification bout: Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir
Brock beats the hell out of Mir, finally HITTING somebody and forgetting that silly 'hammer punch' thing. Mir was bruised and bloody early, and Brock ended it with a flurry of punches on the ground. Brock gets in Mir's face and talks shit afterwards and has to be pulled away by security. As the crowd boos, he gets on the mic and tells them to keep it coming. TOTAL DOMINATION by Brock. Maybe his game has come along faster than I thought it would have.


Welterweight Championship bout: Georges St-Pierre vs. Thiago Alves
GSP dominates and gets the desicion. Good fight.

Middleweight bout: Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping
Dan Henderson wins, in what will surely be one of the more replayed knockouts ever in UFC. Bisping was out for a few minutes in the ring.

Middleweight bout: Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Alan Belcher
Blecher gets absolutely ROBBED in a split decsion. One judge had Akiyama winning all three rounds, when in fact, he got dominated all fight long.

Welterweight bout: Jon Fitch vs. Paulo Thiago
Fitch wins, but it wasn't that great a fight.

Brock Lesnar just gave the biggest Scott Steiner interview ever. A double bird to the crowd, dissing of sponsors, rambling interview and some good old wife fucking to wrap it all up. His domination was impressive, he never gave Mir a shot. UFC better hope he keeps winning, because he will draw a lot of buys from people wanting to see him lose after tonight. There hasn't been a great heel in sports since Mike Tyson went crazy.

GSP is just a machine. He really doesn't seem to have a flaw other than letting his opponets hang around too long.

The Henderson knockout was nasty. I can see fights getting called early for awhile after a brutal knockout. I can't see Bisping coming back from that.

Brock -- scary dominant. As he should be. And I love him going ahead & wallowing in the heel heat. :-)

Not sure who I love more -- GSP or his corner guy. *

Bisping didn't look right to me at all. I was disappointed that he wasn't able to accomplish more. And getting clocked by exactly the thing that your corner tells you to stop walking into. That's not having a good night.

What was the deal with that decision in Akiyama / Belcher? Did anybody think that was a good decision? Especially with that one 30-27 Akiyama vote? Is it just something stylistic that I didn't see?

Worth paying for. Not nearly as deep a card as UFC 91 (The W), but I'm glad I bought it.

--------
* from the break between the 4th & 5th in the GSP fight:

"Awright, let's get that breathing under control, Mr. St Pierre."
Leaning over, "I pulled my groin."
"I don't care. I don't care, George. Hey, look at me. This is where champions are made. You understand me?"
"Yeah."
"Nothing matters now. HIT him with your groin. You got my mentality?"

Hollywood couldn't write that, much less find anybody to provide the delivery. ("Hit him with your groin" ???)

I didn't think the Akiyama decision was off at all. I thought it was a pretty even fight; Belcher won the third, Akiyama won the second and the first round was a tossup. So the decision could've gone either way and I would've understood, though I can't see how a judge could've had it 30-27.

Man, it felt great to see Henderson knock that loud-mouthed, overrated, coddled, overhyped Bisping into next week. That was one of my favourite knockouts of all time.

GSP adds yet another completely dominant win to his resume. I know that he didn't sound too enthused about moving up to middleweight, but honestly, he might have to just to get some competition. Does anyone really think that Mike Swick or Martin Kampmann are going to stand a chance against this guy?

Lesnar is a monster, and his post-match heel promo was hilarious. Mir is a loudmouth himself, so I can't say I blame Brock for throwing some of it back in his face. I'm not sure who in the UFC heavyweight decision stands a hope in hell against Lesnar...maybe Shane Carwin, but that's it.

Belcher could've easily won that fight 30-27. However, he didn't at any point dictate the pace or direction of the fight, nor did he follow up on any substantial offense he put forth. Sure, he'd land a few good hits once in awhile. Then he wouldn't go anywhere, it wouldn't have a lasting effect on Akiyama, and/or Akiyama would have an answer for it. Akiyama on the other hand was every bit the aggressor Belcher was and went out of his way to do stuff like take it to the ground when it appeared he was losing on the stand-up.

30-27 Akiyama is a bit much. But while I'm no expert, I had it 29-28 Akiyama and I think to call it a robbery (as Rogan and Goldberg did) is ridiculous.

OK, I see what you're saying. I thought Belcher scored more clean shots & overall did more damage -- including Akiyama's left eye from the first round, that Belcher caught clean with a nifty left at the beginning of the 3rd. But I do agree that Akiyama seemed to be setting more of the direction, & generally "leading". I guess IMO Belcher was more effective in his response to Akiyama's attempts. As long as we both agree that 30-27 was out of line, I can live with the vagaries of a split decision.

With Coleman already having won, I had $480 pending on a $40 bet on Belcher to win (so I was as biased as humanly possible), and I still thought Akiyama won a 29-28.

That aside, really good card. I'm glad that the card that the most people would watch was not a turn-off.

Oh, and keep GSP away from Silva. I like both of them, but the temporary business is not worth one of them (likely GSP, due entirely to the weight difference) being exposed as not invincible.

I think they should get Sexyama to move down, because if he doesn't he may end up like Vera, where he can hold his own against the division but his prospects look dim (or worse, BORING) against the guys cutting 30 pounds plus at Middleweight. Belcher's not even among the biggest 185ers and it looked like a catchweight bout.

BROCK~! Still feels good to type after all these years.

So how long until Dana has to back up the armored truck in front of the Red Devil training camp and ask Fedor to please come in and truly create the undisputed heavyweight champ? Because Lesnar looked like a beast in there tonight.

I had the fight 29-28 Belcher, as I thought he won rounds 1 and 3. I could see giving Akiyama one of the rounds. But the judge who went 30-27 was watching something very different I think.

Dana White pulled him into the bathroom and chewed him out for going WWE on them, then made him apologize at the press conference. White's pretty much playing the whole thing off as being the influence of that dirty, shameful WWE.

Meanwhile, Henderson flat out admitted (while smirking) that he dropped that last punch when he knew Bisping was out as a lesson for talking shit, yet he gets a KO bonus from the company while Lesnar has to eat crow.

Yeah, that Lesnar is sure sullying up a classy sport.
