Horrible main card for UFC 149. Barao-faber was decent and Clements-Riddle was good. But the 3 fights in between was a disaster for the UFC. I thought Ebersole and Lombard shouldve won despite their sub par performances. Ebersole got some takedowns and was probably a bit ahead standing up in the first 2 rounds. Weird decision, it felt like they gave too much credit for sprawling because that is the only thing Head did. Lombard meanwhile had a lackluster performance and simply didnt live up to the hype. But he shouldve won that fight at least 29-28... Boetsch did nothing but jog, faint and throw 'baby' leg kicks...he even turtled up twice and was that close to getting finished for crying out loud.
Wow just got back from the bar watching this. I don't know that I've ever walked away from a UFC event THIS disappointed lol. Was excited to see Lombard, he sucked it up. Wanted Faber to win, he got his ass (and leg) kicked...
Only thing that completely made my night was when I saw that UFC rehired the only octagon girl I ever gave a damn about:
Never shoulda let her go in the first place
wait they rehired logan? all i saw was britney and rachelle leah, i thought the other one was arrianey? so did arrianey get sacked?
whoa, didn't see that coming. i got cormier via KO. he's going to be a load for mir to get to the ground and even when he is on the ground, he has decent scrambling skills. gotta give it to mir though...he's never really backed down from any opponent, just goes with what ufc says. i guess this a gatekeeper fight of sorts.
don't know if anybody caught the ufc 152 ticket presser but rory macdonald comes off like the guy from american psycho. penn is going to have to be careful or macdonald will win via brutal ground n pound (rogan voice). bisping was vocal about his criticism about the flyweights and lombard. i kinda liked that. if belcher and bisping win their next fights, i think they should face off for #1 contender vs. silva. i'm assuming weidman gets the silva next/soon.
