UFC 156 - "lay and pray"

the_enigmathe_enigma Posts: 19,068Premium
Fighters known to use lay and pray to win fights:

Rashad (early ufc fights, post Machida excluding Tito)
Jon Fitch
Glieson Tibau
Tyron Woodley
Jacob Volkmann

Even Overeem lay and pray'd Werdum in the rematch.

Then you've got Frankie's in and out tag game style.

This event could turn out really "technical", anyone else think this event could possibly turn out to be a long night?
^ I agree.

    You forgot the possibility Big Foot laying on Overeem, no TDD to be seen from Overeem. Although Big Foot may choose to beat him up standing like Werdum did

    I saw him laying and praying in the Cain fight. He was also choking on his own blood, dude's a multi-tasker.

    Overeem L&P'd Werdum in the rematch!?

    If I was a lesser man I would tag that as troll

    But I wouldn't do that, I love you and want our relationship to blossom like a flower in a dew covered meadow during sunrise

    I did have a strange feeling there might be a lot of boring fights on this card Fitch, Volkmann, Woodley and Rashad are notorious for it but I think their opponents will make these fights actually pretty exciting to watch, Maia's ground skills should make there fight very interesting, Volkmann actually impressed me in his last fight which was surprising.

    I expect Rashad will try to (probably succeed) lay on Nog and Woodley will try the same with Heiron.

    Rashad, Fitch and Woodley will definately try to lay n pray....the question is will their opponent let them?

    Bigfoot will try to TD Reem...but if he does TD Reem he definately won't lay n pray imo

    IT MIGHT HAVE POTENTIAL ,I THINK FITCH AND MAIA WILL BE AN INTERESTING FIGHT.EDGAR AND ALDO COULD BE EPIC TOO.AND REALLY HOPING BIGFOOT PULLS OFF THE UPSET ON THAT ARROGANT ****

    I think the only fight on the main card that could be boring is Rashad vs Lil Nog

    I haven't seen the fight,so I'm in the dark on how much people say his striking has improved..(Edit)After looking this event up I did see 153,I must've stepped out to burn one because I wasn't expecting much that fight & wanted a buzz before the Teixeira fight..

    His striking hasn't improved from what I saw he used his usual gameplan of control but E.Silva put up a pretty good fight until he got tired so the fight was actually exciting.. that's how I saw it anyway.

    The Fitch/Silva fight was exciting because of the grappling war they put on. If I remember correctly Silva had Fitch in a bad RnC and somehow Fitch was able to get out. If it woulda been anybody other then Fitch the fight would of been over. His sub defense is excellent.

    Question??If Fitch KOs Maia will he have his own bandwagon again on the forums??

    I highly doubt we will see Fitch get a KO anytime soon. He doesn't attack with strikes to get the KO.

    If Maia gets that deep of a RNC on Fitch there is no **** way in hell he is getting out of it.

    You are probably right. Maia made Rick Story bleed without even hitting him in the face once. Blood by squeeeeeeeeeze! LoL

    Even Overeem lay and pray'd Werdum in the rematch.

    Werdum was doing the most of the laying 'n praying though...

    Werdum laid'n'prayed himself to an UD loss that fight. One of the most embaracing fights I've ever seen.
    On-topic: This card is pretty sick. I think Rashad will wrestle his way to a boring UD win, but the rest of the fights will be good imo. I'm especially curious of the Fitch - Maia bout, believe it or not :P. The Hulk vs Bigfoot, and Edgar is always in awesome fights, so... I think you're wrong.
