i’m embarrassed to admit i’d never seen a live faber fight before!
love his gas tank, aggression, toughness, willingness to jump in to that super-dangerous guard. the more i see these top wrestlers the more i appreciate what they do. on that, askren and white are flirting now. :P
Faber's elite man. Well-rounded, dangerous in all areas. Unfortunately for him, he will likely never win the title with guys like Aldo, Cruz (Barao on the come up).
Alcantara was a very dangerous opponent, and Faber manhandled him.
I believe Overeem gassed out after dropping those bombs on Hapa, which led him to drop his hands down & Hapa capitalized on it. But at the same time, his ego was there & that led him to keep moving forward with his hands down, & thought that Hapa was still rocked.
Holy fucking shit. Chael submitting Shogun? There's the biggest surprise of the night, IMO. I figured he'd win a decision blanketing him with some g n p. Very nice.
Right before that I was just about to post that I couldn't watch 4 more rounds of Sonnen pounding Shogun from the top. Coming into the fight I figured it'd either end with a Shogun finish or a Sonnen decision. Didn't see that finish coming at all.
Good job by Sonnen, I dont think anyone expected him beating Shogun by submission.
Shogun is done, time to call it a career mate...
Yea and honestly Sonnen is pretty damn elite, just because he got destroyed by Jones and Silva everyone started calling him washed up and one dimensional but at 36 it's crazy how good he is. He can still beat almost all MWs and some of the Top 10 LHWs.
