— The Lashley/Guida bout didn’t live up to the pre-fight trash-talk, and Lashley proved that he’s not quite ready for prime time. The first round was spent mostly in a clinch against the ropes after Guida was able to stuff Lashley’s takedown attempts. The next two rounds saw Lashley on top of Guida and working some ground-and-pound, but Guida never took much damage. In fact, a guillotine choke attempt that Guida put on Lashley in the third round was the closest that the fight came to being finished. It was a moral victory for Guida — though his record now drops to 17-20, while Lash increases to 2-0.

— Roy Nelson got straight-up robbed by the judges. Though Jeff Monson did win the third round via striking exchanges, the first two were controlled by Nelson, who scored takedowns and was able to achieve mount in both rounds. But it seemed that all three judges credited the second frame to Monson due to some knees he threw in the clinch. After the fight, Monson admitted that the fight "could have gone either way," while Nelson immediately stormed off in anger.

— After beating Gabe Lemley with a ferocious punches-and-knee combo that put Lemley out cold, Din Thomas told the crowd that it’s not cool to put hands on a lady, and if Rihanna needs someone to kick Chris Brown’s ass for her, she should holla.

i missed tuf guy

lashley dominated the fight but it was still a very disappointing showing. huge size advantage against a guy whose pretty sub par at any weight, he should have finished it or at least been able to damage him.

roy nelsons ground game looked really good like it did against arlovski, it would appear that he's been working on it

this was a boring garbage event all around

Saying Nelson got "robbed" is a huge stretch. Most should agree that Monson won the third while Nelson won the first, so the round in question is the second. During that round, here's what happened: Nelson got two takedowns... however, neither of them meant anything. With the first Nelson landed nothing of note from side mount and Monson was back on his feet in 30 seconds. With the second Nelson again landed nothing of note and Monson was up in 10 seconds. Other than that Nelson did largely nothing offensive the entire round, landing maybe 3 or 4 solid knees. Monson, on the other hand, landed several solid punches and spent the whole round kneeing from the clinch, landing upwards of 20 knees to the body. I suppose who you think won depends on how much importance you give to takedowns - but I'd say the takedown itself isn't as important as what you do with that takedown (unless it's a huge slam) - and in this case Nelson did nothing of note and managed to control Monson for a total of around 40 seconds. Does that really qualify him for winning the round?

Guida is a disgusting fat body

Damn I thought that guy was dead or ran off with his boyfriend....

They obviously chose to have announcers like this on purpose. The boxing announcer is someone the boxing fan can relate to who will do his best to explain and understand from his perspective. He ought to get things wrong. If he wasn't, the boxing fan couldn't relate. Then Seth sets things right and elaborates from the MMA fighter's perspective. I think the commentating was one of the things this production had going for it, given what they were trying to do. Too bad the fights weren't as good.

Lashley could have and should have won by KO or TKO in the first round. When ever Lashley just stood and traded with him he dominated 100% but then just went for the clinch againts the ropes and achived nothing! Its partly his corner mens Fault....They should of been telling him to keep it standing in the centre of the ring!

So this site is for fags?

That must be why tuf guy loves it so much, and likes to think he is the boss of it.

Lashley showed okay skills for a guy in his second fight. The ring affected his ability to takedown Guida, and in the first, Guida grabbed, then looped his arm around the ropes, preventing a takedown. I also noticed a few times when Lashley was going for teh GnP, his puches were hitting the ropes. He did okay against a very experienced guy, and it was someone who he SHOULD have been fighting, a mediocre fighter with some experience and some wins. Another 0-0 guy, or a guy with a 3-11 record would have served as no real test.

The first thing Lashley said after the fight was "back to training", so he recognizes he needs work. The 15 minutes of fight tape he just got will provide alot of insight into where he needs teh most work.

ffs, keep MMA out of a ring. If you can't find a cage, use a yamma.

Hey TUF, how's that vagina you picked up in Rio de Janeiro working out?

Hope some Brazilian tranny done popped your stitches, you pole-smoking goat rapist.

MMA and ADD - Attention Deficit Dissorder caused by MMA makes hybrid cards absolutely intolerable.

Present MMA bouts first and boring, lengthy and irrelevent boxing cards last.

just some dong- March 22, 2009 at 1:29 pm
yeah, cool to see Din put on a good show. Everything else... mehh...
Harry Russo- March 22, 2009 at 1:20 pm
People who think Nelson won the fight are sympathetic towards fat people.
Bojangles- March 22, 2009 at 1:14 pm
its good to see Din Thomas fighting at 145, he's going to be a real force and eventually contend for the title at the WEC. Plus the boxing announcer did a pretty good job IMO considering he is new to the sport.

Why even talk about Lashley...?...He's a big "Dean Lister"....Worthless MMA fighter!

He's big and slow, I saw no apparent MMA skills, unless you call Hugging & Steroids an MMA skill.

WHAT A JOKE!......It was "Bread-truck Guida for Christs Sake!....!!!!

Be careful to not get sucked in to the circular logic of congratulating Jason Guida for such a good performance against a guy who could barely beat Jason Guida.

Definately should have been a free card on tv.

MMA should never be done in anything but a cage, that becomes more and more apparent everytime someone attempts to put it in a ring. Its coming to a point where its so obvious that it should just never happen again.

Lashley needs to try and work his way on to a promotion like Strikeforce, I think that would be a good fit for him. If he can do well there and build up a record then sure try him in some UFC undercards, but until then he isn't ready for primetime. Everyone loves to compare Lesnar and Lashley but lets remember how Lesnar got into the UFC.... He basically begged and pleaded with Dana to give him a shot and Dana realizing the hype and money it could generate accepted and now Lesnar is champ. Lashley wasn't "as big" a star as Lesnar was in the WWE so he will be forced to do alot more before Dana even considers offering him a contract. Lashley will get better with time.

I am just waiting for this Hybrid card stuff to get really out of hand. I can see with in a couple years the WWE will offer a real MMA fight during Wrestlemania or something absurd. (they paid Mayweather 10 million to fight Bigshow). Its all only a matter of time!

Nice takedowns, Bobby. I could use those against Mir for the rematch - you saw how hard it was for me to take him down the first time, right? CAN YOU SEE ME NOW
