Striking clinic! Browne's striking looks amateurish like most MMA fighters striking. Doesn't set up his strikes well. Always going for Haymakers.

Travis's coach said that Travis broke his hand & ribs in the 1st round & then dislocated the bones in his foot in the later rounds.

Next week Anthony Johnson vs Phil Davis, the explosive and athletic striker vs explosive and athletic wrestler. I hope Rumble knocks Phil the **** out after he tries to blanket him for 3 rounds.

i hadn't read about the feet. damn. if he keeps getting injured like this in the middle of fights, maybe he'd better reconsider his career.


and werdum is NOT the guy i wanted to face cain... because i think vai cavalo has the tools to pull the upset.

plenty of people also seem to think that werdum could upset JDS in a rematch. considering how much better he's gotten the last few years, it's hard to argue that too much.

Can someone explain this whole "china" thing I have been seeing it in threads now.

I just don't think Werdum has the athletic ability to compete with Cain or JDS and both can KO him fairly easy imo while absorbing most his improved stand up striking he's just to slow imo. Massive props to him for improving as a fighter but his striking has come a long way.

Travis Browne needs to use his energy more effectively, even the way he moves he wastes a lot of energy than combine it with his size/throwing everything into punches he's never going to be effective for more than 1 round. I would not mind seeing Browne vs Nelson next.

China chin, synonymous to glass jaw. Meaning weak chin / jaw.

Ex.

Edson Barboza's glass jaw was shattered by a jab. His chin must be made in China.

I've been watching combat sports for so long I still don't know what the number on vegas odds mean. I know if the fighter has negative number, he is the favorite to win. Positive means underdog but what does those numbers mean?

For example:

Using UFC 126 as reference

Anderson Silva: - 220 (favorite)
Vitor Belfort: +175 (underdog)

what does -220 and + 175 mean?

mr. wonderful versus rumble will hopefully be interesting.

pretty hard to see glover upsetting bones, but we do know from his last three fights that he's upsettable.

and he recently changed his mind about wanting to move up to HW and challenge cain. smart decision, mister jones.

Glover has no chance against Bones. He's too slow. This fight would look like Jones vs Rampage.

Gus and Bones 2 would be better. It should happen this year but it looks like Bones is ducking.

i think any contender has a chance against jones for the simple reason that his body fails him sometimes. we saw that in his last three fights.

gus2 and cormier are up next i think, so we have some dynamite fights to look forward to.
