robthom you may be the dumbest human on the planet, believe me DF is not a mod on any board. Now go back to cleaning your basement before your mom kicks you out.

Yep, Brian Bowles is definitely from West Virginia.

I would just like to point out that I had Cruz all the way and his horse carried me through to first in 5 of my fightpicker pools. Anyone else with this call I applaud you. Everyone fell for the Bowles hype. Yeah he knocked out Torres but Serra KO'd GSP. Shit still stinks.

Torres looked timid. Did he lose his killer instinct?

Pulver = Done, and the sooner he realizes it the better for his future prospects. Nobody wants to be another Ken Shamrock.

Is that Don Frye...........(sarcasm).

What a night. Torres got schooled. WOW.

And for Jens Pulver. Damn, I almost cryed with him. He is a perfect example of a class athlete. I wish Frank Mir was commentating so he could learn a thing or 2. Jens didnt get jealous, make death threats, or stalk forever after Penn held onto that choke for an extra couple seconds while the ref was tryign to rip him loose. Instead, he showed respect, even after that. If he were Mir....Jens would of talked about him for the past year or 2, telling everyone from coast to coast how he wants to kill him.

Jens is teh classiest fighter out there, period. Will always be a Jens Pulver fan. Sucks to see him losing, but even he knows that it is probably time to call it quits even though it is much easier said than done. Good luck to Jens adn whatever he does. I hope he takes Frank Mir's job. At least he wont be biased towards certain fighters. ALthough, I would of loved to hear(or not hear) Mir's reaction when his bff got schooled.

@the bens:

So there was no play by play tonight for the fights? I hope that twitter broadcast doesn't become a regular thing because that sucked trying to follow the fights if you didn't watch them. Maybe I'm not that familiar with twitter and did something wrong, but I didn't see much going on over there.

You said "follow us on twitter for updates," but all I saw were who won the fights amongst ramdom replies to other people twittering. Sucks balls if you ask me.

Please don't act lazy now and continue to do that. When I can't watch the fights live, those "in round" updates are a life saver to stay current with MMA.

Love what you guys do, but thanks for nothing last night

I wonder if Torres is taking the Razor Rob road and partying harder than he is training. Seems all the pictures I ever see of him these days are drunk at a club w/ a drink in one hand and a skank on the other arm.
daeyeth- March 6, 2010 at 11:48 pm
I dunno, I don't see him putting on muscle and I think he's the type that would think doing something like that would be admitting defeat, which he despises.

Lot of props to Benavidez tho, he looked fantastic. Real clean, nice looking style.
daeyeth- March 6, 2010 at 11:42 pm
lol interesting way to describe it, but it is effective. Bowles was forced to go completely on the defensive because Cruz's movements were too hard to read. The guy mixes in so many feints, it made Bowles unassure to move in and when Bowles did go, he only did it in small spurts. Then Cruz made a really smart decision in going for the take down.
jizzninja- March 6, 2010 at 10:57 pm
Cruz fights like he has turrets. What a fag!
MKO- March 6, 2010 at 10:21 pm
For a man who had possibly the most obnoxious voice ever, gotta say Stephan Bonnar did pretty good at the mic.
ghostboner- March 6, 2010 at 10:09 pm
Well I'll be buggered. I called the Palaszewski fight but that was all. Glad I didn't put money on any of these. Torres did not look like himself. Think he tried to change things too much. And yes, Cruz is a colossal sacadouche. Anyone know what happened on the un-aired bouts?
budsellers- March 6, 2010 at 10:08 pm
will we see torres go up to the ufc 155 division? there is no reason for him to move up to 145 if the ufc will have him...

i liked cruz in all of his interviews up until this week for some reason. thought it was funny when the wec pres snatched the belt away from moms and shook his head in disapproval towards cruz.

@ Dubus,

There is a "donfrye" who is a mod in the MMAnews forum who was reffered to and treated as the Don frye.
He used to just post at first so I thought it might just be some dude. But Smoogy is no idiot and wouldn't have made someone posing as don frye a mod. So when he did that he pretty much vouched for him.

I did not actually see him through the computer though.

I also thought it seemed kinda weird for an old dude like that to be a mod. But I've never been one so I dont know what all it entails. Maybe its not so tricky as it sounds. Probably just an interface to delete posts and manipulate accounts.
Maybe if your qualified to post in a forum your technically qualified to be a mod too.

Temperament and Judgment is what makes a good one IMO, which is why he was such a bad one.

Honestly I'm sure I'd be a bad one too.
Jubbie- March 6, 2010 at 9:41 pm
I didn't understand the fans at that event. Random rampant booing seemingly regardless of what was happening.

Cruz gives off some major douche vibes but you can't deny he picked Bowles apart. Benevidez was beastly against Torres who was looking surprisingly tentative.
Me- March 6, 2010 at 9:40 pm
I got owned on FightPicker this week. Hard.

This is why I hate WEC cards, crazy crap happens too much.
Randy Pan- March 6, 2010 at 9:35 pm
Cruz crushed Bowles. Cruz is too cocky in victory. Faber will lose to Aldo, drop to 135, and beat him again.
Dubus22- March 6, 2010 at 9:33 pm

Fair enough man, you got your reasons, just breaking balls anyway.

Do u mean Frye is a mod at mmanews? cause that would be a little weird, seems like the guy would be too old school to even own a computer.


When Don does it my friend it aint called cheating, it's called "Spreading the Frye baby....Spreading the Frye...."
robthom- March 6, 2010 at 9:31 pm
Bonnar is doing a good job IMO.

I always thought he was a cool dude.
So disappointing to see him slack off on his fighting. Needs to get serious and join a new camp IMO.

@ Kabbage, Lol.
KidKabbage- March 6, 2010 at 9:25 pm

That is a good sacrifice. Don Frye already strikes fear into the souls of his opponents, their families, and anyone he looks upon with contempt. Why not add canceraids to his list of superhuman powers?


Watch what you say. Don Frye's ears are on fire. He never cheats on his woman. And to make that allegation is grounds for him to mail you an envelope with his chin hairs inside, indicating that he has returned to his moustached ways and means serious business.
robthom- March 6, 2010 at 9:22 pm
To answer your first question, I've got my reasons.
They may be trifling, and maybe I can barely remember what they are now, but I've got them. That's all I need to know.
He's a mod at MMAnews.
MilwaukeeMade- March 6, 2010 at 9:20 pm
That Pettis fight should help my picks... idk though... damn bartimus skrewed me again... skrew that guy.
Dubus22- March 6, 2010 at 9:15 pm
Dude if only that were true, if only...I'd wear the t-shirt with pride. Sadly it's not though,...truth be told my sisters not much of a looker...and pretty lousy in bed to.
robthom- March 6, 2010 at 9:12 pm
Actually I walked in on "the predator" cheating on your granny with you and your sister.

How does HIV feel?
Dubus22- March 6, 2010 at 9:02 pm
@ robthom

Damn man what did The Predator do to you? Did yah walk in on him one time giving your momma a good seeing to and realize his moustache wasn't the only thing you'd never be able to measure up to?

robthom- March 6, 2010 at 8:59 pm
@ KidKabbage

With my luck your probably right. But a deal with Satan is of course necessarily Faustian.
So I continue to hope, and pray.

Maybe don frye continues to live and kick ass grow mustaches, yet brings canceraids upon everyone he loves or touches.
That would work for me.
