UFC 140: The Cold War in Hogtown

(“What you lookin’ at piss breath?”)

Well, here we are at the UFC’s second Toronto card of 2011 and I’m stuck at home an hour-and-a-half away live-blogging on my couch with my wife and my dog.

I got a call from a buddy a few hours ago telling me he had a free ticket for me, but I told him I had to keep you guys abreast of the action, so I took a raincheck. Don’t say I never do anything for you.

The UFC 140 prelims are already in the books. Check out the results after the jump and let’s get this thing going.

Good luck Karma, Australia is rooting for ya, also I bet you are stoked about the Flyweights hitting the UFC, more spotlight for the little guys.

( , )- December 17th, All the INFO is right there. Lol Xeno you troll
RwilsonR- December 11, 2011 at 5:13 pm
^ ^ Uhh... perhaps you misunderstand what a troll is, XENO. I'm not making any reference to people expressing/defending opinions.
XENOPHON- December 11, 2011 at 10:22 am
Cause this entire portal is filled with trolls, that what the CP portal is all about. People with opinions, and defending their opinions. It's not rocket science RWilsonR....and shouldn't be so mystifying.
RwilsonR- December 11, 2011 at 9:41 am
I also remember when the person writing the liveblog used to try to be funny or entertaining. Did we give up on that whole angle, CP?
RwilsonR- December 11, 2011 at 9:40 am
Why do these liveblogs always end up like tht area under the bridge where trolls seem to hang out?

@Dnrao Klils
Why you always mixed up?
JET and I are the same person.
Do you feel like your being picked on?
Just tell us who you dislike the most, the other will promise to leave you alone (at least for a few days)
XENOPHON- December 11, 2011 at 8:28 am
Hey Watts, I checked out the RagingWolf website.
They claim your fighting some chick named Tonya Evinger.
What's up with that one bro?
dranokills- December 11, 2011 at 8:20 am
awwww look everyone, sheena and j3t had a retarded monkey child, and named it nas.

As for Mir, he stood the barrage, and managed to grab and hold onto an arm. Although just one fight, he is still relevant.
As for Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, other are calling a loser. Not even close, he was in command until he let his arm flop around. That said, go back and watch the arm break a second time.
Nog never tapped, not until after that arm snapped in half. "Big man points, and props from me!" Sure as hell hope this isn't any talk of retirement around here.

This is SB...says it all.
Other Thoughts:
- Lyoto Machida looked great in the first round. He was landing on Jones and was the first man to ever expose any sort of weakness the champ may have. That elbow was the fight changer as it was the first strike that has ever made Machida quit. He's not a huge loser tonight because he still had the performance in the first round.
- Goldberg and Rogan were very much off their games tonight. They often ignored full sequences of fights to discuss inane topics. I understand that the UFC is winding down after a rough year but these guys need to be at the top of their game every night.
- I'm pretty bummed that neither Rogan or Goldberg made any comment about Frank Shamrock, who was working Brian Ebersole's corner. We joke about the UFC's ability to ignore the past but tonight was a great moment to reference a MMA legend and instead Shamrock was ignored.
- Mark Hominick needed a win. Not just to get back in the W column but also to get his life back under control. He lost his best friend earlier this year when it was announced that Shawn Tompkins had passed away. Hopefully UFC brass take their time with the Machine, he's got the popularity to make a different in the Canadian market.

Come'on karma...the zombie was only in the ring 7 seconds, how great could he look. He missed a punch, land one of his own, then taped the other 3-4 times while his head was already on the mat. Too much lust bro.

Where exactly in New York? I'm from Upstate so if it's not too far I'd be down to check it out.
KarmaAteMyCat- December 11, 2011 at 7:01 am
Oh man that was an awesome card. I don't think anyone is ever going to use to phrase "Jon Jones has never been tested" or "He just hasn't fought anyone that great" the dude has literally beaten three of the top Light heavy weight's in the world. Oh and by Beaten I mean FINISHED them all in a dominant fashion it's just so damn impressive.
I also thought The Korean Zombie looked fucking sick.
Frank Mir got nailed in the fight with Nog, Big Nog shouldn't have gone for a submission and by no means am I discrediting his Jujitsu because it's world class but Mir had almost NO Idea where he was at. Thus he probably should have kept punching him regardless of the ref telling him to not hit him in the back of the head because thats where he hesitated and I felt he changed the plan of attack after the referee told him like that and just didn't want to get Dq'd or lose a point and it cost him his Arm. I still couldn't believe he wouldn't tap to that and honestly that's atleast eight months off from training and competing.
Frank Mir is sometimes a very impressive fighter, like last night.
Oh and if anyone is in Western New York next weekend let me know I am fighting a very game Opponent as he is 6-0 at RagingWolf productions.
EnemyofReality- December 11, 2011 at 1:07 am
overeem possibly out. Josh barrnett in is my guess!
StinkFacer- December 11, 2011 at 12:58 am
.....smh. does this site not have an age check? Nog is a master of his craft. He won't tap, and happily accepts a dislocated shoulder over devaluing his status as a master of his trade.
Ogre- December 10, 2011 at 11:19 pm
It wasn't his shoulder it was his elbow.
edhedicus- December 10, 2011 at 11:12 pm
Wow! I thought Machida was dead. Great choke, very good champion. Fun to watch.
Todd M- December 10, 2011 at 10:42 pm
@ BryanF, Cheers, well this could get interesting.
Joedirt- December 10, 2011 at 10:38 pm
I've heard he's out... because his mom is ill, because he may have ditched or failed a drug test and now injury.
BryanF- December 10, 2011 at 10:34 pm
@ Todd M
yeah, sorry. I meant overeem. Its a rumor among several reporters at the press conference that Overeem is injured: (

Dana White did say that's the first he's ever heard of it however.
Overeem's camp is in Holland now though.
Todd M- December 10, 2011 at 10:31 pm
Also I do NOT want to see Lesnar vs Mir 3 no matter how good Mir looked tonight, Brock will just lunchbox him again.
Todd M- December 10, 2011 at 10:30 pm
^ Where are you guys hearing this?
Joedirt- December 10, 2011 at 10:29 pm
Bryan I assume you mean Overeem... but yes cancer is an Ahole. Hopefully his mother is ok.
