Brazilians 8-1. Whatever Dana and Joe

Recommended Posts

Anyone else notice that the Brazilians opponent in every fight was at least one step below them in terms of skill level. Not total mismatches but definitely not on equal par. I don't mean that as a compliment to them or as a knock on their opponent. Just seems like every time they have a PPV in another country the UFC slants the skill level in favor of that country. I know Dana is trying to build a fan base all over the world and I can applaud that. He just needs to remember which fans got him to where he is today. By the third fight I was pulling for the non-Braziilian no matter what. Except for Nog, how could anyone not pull for Nog. I realize that no matter who they put in against Silva the skill sets would be lopsided but for the rest of the fights? 8 and 1 my butt. Brazlil has some of the best fighters in the world without a doubt. I would be insulted if I were them. Put the best fighters against our best fighters, don't throw a sheep in with the wolves. Come on Joe Silva you have the deepest talent pool in the world to draw from, you guys can do better.

I actually thought Schaub would beat Big Nog. That was my one fault in predicting the UFC Rio. You have to admit, most people thought Big Nog was in the decline of his career due to his previous injuries.

Why? Schaub is not some wrecking machine and his boxing is overrated as hell. Roy Nelson knocking him out was not a fluke...

 

 

Schaub is young athletic and has heavy hands... he may not have great boxing but he has knock out power shown over and over again... Nog is old and coming off a brutal KO to someone who hasn't shown the KO power that Schaub has....

 

Oh and FAirDaleCat - sig bet?

There was absolutely nothing wrong with these match-ups, except for maybe Tavares vs Spencer Fisher. Yea, everyone knew Okami vs Silva would be one-sided, but Okami earned the shot. What I find more interesting and maybe a little ironic is that with all these BJJ specialists, fighting in the birthplace of BJJ, not a single fight ended in submission.

lol Cain has finished everyone except Kongo. He would ****ing kill Schaub in a matter of seconds. It really wasn't that brutal of a KO considering Nog just stood right up after the fight was called.

Schuab has more KO power than Cain. Now I've heard it all.

Exactly, no one could have predicted that.

BS, Whiny baby. Griff is the guy who beat Shogun the first time around, Nog was the underdog, Cane got beat, Barboza apparently got a gift decision.

 

Please, quit your whining right now.

cain has far better hands don't get me wrong- crisp striking as he showed against Nog & Stoinjic But Schaub has more 1punck KO power yes....

 

He's shown it time and time again that if he lands a haymaker he'll put you down CT, Chase, Cro Cop etc...

Time and time again he has shown it against nobodies (CT has lost 3/4 of his last fights by KO/TKO while Chase last lost 3/5 of his last fights by KO/TKO) and Cro Cop who everybody already knew was on his way out. He couldn't even KO Gonzaga. Gonzaga KO's himself getting out of bed in the morning.

Agree to disagree.... If Gabes chin was that bad Mirko would have put him out....

 

PS. getting KO'd by Carwin & JDS is nothing to be ashamed of....

 

I'm just talking 1punch KO power... before the Nog fight Nobody ever said Velasquaz has awesome 1punch KO power.
