Got this in the mail today from directv
... UFC 168 costs $59.95. Matter to you?
Focus and Training
... Can't wait for Dec. 28.
Killing two birds with one tweet. Amateur MMA cards in Downtown L.A. on Dec. 7 (@TapouT_Gym) and Dec. 8 (@UofMMA) at Club Nokia. cc:
I don't know why, but I'm morbidly fascinated by a Ben Askren-Phil Baroni fight. ... Hmm. Morbidly or otherwise, I'm not.
This week's GPB features
ahead of his fight with Matt Brown. Also,
on Invicta 7.
"Judo" Gene LeBell will be on
show today. I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun. LeBell is a master story teller.
Today is 50th anniversary of the first televised MMA fight in the U.S. Gene LeBell vs. Milo Savage in Salt Lake City.
TUF wasn't so good for Rousey's image. Not that she cares, but people seem to really dislike her now. Hardly matters if she keeps winning.
Ronda Rousey could not look any less interested in this experience. Impossible. What a unique person. She didn't watch one TUF episode.
Another heavy dose for Maynard. Edgar, Grant then Diaz. Rough. Maynard doesn't fight so often, but when he does his brain gets punished.
Nate Diaz hammered Gray Maynard, who was saved by Yves Lavigne while taking a ton of shots near the cage. That was a good stoppage.
Diaz is tuning him up.
Main event fighters are in the cage. Gray Maynard and Nate Diaz for a third time. I favor Maynard's power here, but Diaz could tune him up.
Yamasaki should be aware of time because of 10-second clap. But if he felt she couldn't defend herself, doesn't matter what's on the clock.
Mario Yamasaki stopped the fight with one second to go in R1. Mistake? Rakoczy wasn't hurt. Just overwhelmed by Pena.
First TUF winner ever to hear "congratulations sweetheart" from Dana White in the Octagon? Julianna Pena. (I assume.)
Julianna Pena beat up Jessica Rakoczy. Mario Yamasaki called it with mere seconds remaining in the first. Was going to score it 10-8.
Holdsworth doesn't wait for the judges. He finds an early second round tap, rear-naked choke. Looks like a solid bantamweight prospect.
Holdsworth 10-9. Shaping up to be a good men's final at 135.
Let's label that segment "Rousey at the Oscars." Where was she gazing off to?
Solid effort by Duke to save her neck. She got to half guard and Kim Winslow decied to stand them up at 0:30 mark. Why? Anyhow, 30-27 Duke.
Serious miscue by Duke. Morgan looking for a choke and a comeback.
I like how Jessamyn Duke fights. She's up 20-18. Peggy Morgan lumbers like Tim Sylvia.
I ended up not watching as much TUF as I thought I might. Here and there. Inconsistent. Anyhow, what did you think of the season?
Closest tap/non-tap I've seen in a long time. Nonetheless, tremendous display of bushido by
She loses to
News confirms "Fast and Furious" star Paul Walker died at the age of 40 ... Loved MMA. BJJ brown belt. RIP.
Big time illegal knee by Maximo Blanco really hurt Akira Corassani. It's a DQ loss for Blanco at 0:25 of R1. Corassani got banged up by it.
Twitter is amazing for a lot of things. Death announcements isn't one of those things.
29-28 Niinimaki. 29-28 Yahya. 30-27 Niinimaki. The "Stoneface" Fin wins.
Winslow's standup completely changed the third round. So bad. Gotta be a split decision coming. I'm scoring the third 10-10. 29-29. Why not?
Next time Winslow restarts it she should let them go from their knees. Dumb standups. Rayha doesn't have this choke attempt w/o Winslow.
Have it 19-19 after two, but this is looking more and more like Niinimaki's fight. He's grappled the entire way with Yahya and has the edge.
Rosholt got the win, 29-28 across the board. A determined effort. Can't disagree.
This fight deserve a 28-28 score? Some people want 10-8s used more often. Harris had Rosholt hurt in R1. Or we looking at 29-28 Rosholt?
Anyone ranking Josh Sampo in top 10 at 125 before his UFC debut should feel good. Sweet rear-naked choke by Sampo to start tonight's action.
I got to watch one second of Auburn-Alabama and it was unbelievable!
Any reports that claim Shane Del Rosario has died are false. Just confirmed with
that SDR continues to cling to life. Not much new.
Nate Diaz and Gray Maynard weigh 156 pounds. Staredown took a sec to develop but then it lingered just enough. I have Maynard by decision.
Each of the four 135-pound TUF finalists are on weight for tomorrow night. What's your interest level in Pena-Rakoczy and Holdsworth-Grant?
#KMart is not to be out done by
#walmartfights ... Idiocracy not far off.
This is my latest reporting on Shane Del Rosario. Please ignore any report that claims he died.
If you see an ESPN UK story with my byline saying Shane Del Rosario has died, ignore it. I didn't write that. Don't know what's up. Awful.
Worth saying again: As slim as his chances are, Del Rosario hasn't passed away. Keep him in your thoughts. Be thankful for your life today.
Shane Del Rosario hasn't passed, but
told me "it is over." No brain activity & the family decided against putting him on a machine.
Arctic Sun is the machine doctors used to induce Del Rosario into hypothermia. Amazing.
Got an update from
Next 15-24 hours are crucial for Del Rosario. His organs are slowly coming online. Brain's next. Update coming.
heart attack at age 30? ... Doctors have not called this a "heart attack." Sudden cardiac arrest.
Been in contact with
all morning about Shane Del Rosario. He wants people to know Shane has a chance, "albeit it a small one."
signing of Rousimar Palhares. Strong words re:
This week's GPB features
looking ahead to Dec. 14. Great #UFC card in Sacramento.
