He'll eat you and your children though


As a slight aside I love the fact that MMA fans think they're far too smart to fall for anything pro-wrestling but Lesnar's heel persona drags them all in hook, line and sinker. Love him or hate him he's the best thing that's happened for the mainstream of the sport...

Brock is going to be difficult to beat assuming his defense is going to keep improving. Seems like he'd have to make a mistake to lose.

How retarded do you have to be to slate the main sponsor of the show? Sure the guy is a phenomenal fighter but he is treading on thin ice right there.

Damn! Bisping got ****ed up! Christ knows what he was thinking circling onto Dan's right hand. I was really pulling for Bisping in this fight as well.

I was a bit disappointed with Akiyama fight also, he looked really small compared to his other fights and seemed to struggle at times. It maybe worth dropping to WW especially as GSP seems to have destroyed everyone in the division and needs new competiton before he fights Anderson.

It appears Brock has landed himself in hot water with the sponsors after his 'Coors light' outburst. Not the smartest buisness move he has ever made.

I'm sure it was too late, but he apologized in the interviews he did after the show. And the problem a lot of the Japanese fighters have is they hardly ever cut weight. So if the fight is at 185, Akiyama is probably walking around at 185 and fighting at 185. While Belcher was probably close to 200 pounds as they stepped in.

A fascinating note from Dave Meltzer in his daily update
Quote:
--A ton of interesting reaction to last night. I'm going to give my old boxing speech with a little bit of a twist. Anyone who has ripped on every athlete who at times shows unsportsmanlike like behavior can say anything they want about Brock Lesnar and that's fine. For those who think that it is going to mean more people will tune out UFC than people he has hooked as fans who want to see him get beat, you are probably as dead wrong as the people who said the same thing about Ali. For those who think Lesnar was a disgrace to the UFC for doing WWE antics, read a real history lesson of how the sport got popular. Ken Shamrock and Royce Gracie doing WWE interviews, and the funny thing is nobody was more arrogant on his interviews than Gracie, but he was small and beat big guys at first so he backed it up and became the first legend. Shamrock and Tito in 2002 saved UFC when it was one step from death. Did they save it because they were the top two fighters in the world on that night and all these sports fans wanted to pay to find out who was really No. 1?

No. They saved it because they went on "Best Damn Sports Show Period" and cut pro wrestling promos on each other and with no television at all, 150,000 people bought their PPV match, and the UFC owners realized that there was potential in this money losing outfit.

The real history that all the UFC historical retrospectives left out, was that it was the TV shows the two weeks before the Leben vs. Koscheck fight on Ultimate Fighter that was the real building blocks for the success of the sport, not the Griffin and Bonnar fight as has been reported in many places over the past week. Leben vs. Koscheck in a taped match in front of a dozen people in a warehouse like gym drew a higher rating than Griffin and Bonnar did.

In no way do I want to diminish that Griffin-Bonnar was the perfect fight on the perfect night and in the long-term helped more, because they delivered the great fight as opposed to just the great hype that delivered television ratings, but disappointed in the end. What was Matt Serra before Montreal? What was Frank Mir and Michael Bisping this past week? Play some tapes of Ali's promos for Frazier.

There are a lot of very good reasons not to like Brock Lesnar. But whatever media and Hardcore backlash there is against him, which admittedly is some of the most entertaining stuff in a long time, is because he's a former WWE wrestler, not for anything he did. Tank Abbott flipped off fans, and said he was sexually aroused when watching a replay of his match with Paul Varelans. Was Lesnar doing it anymore than Tito Ortiz and his Gay Mezger is my bitch T-shirt, or his grave digging, and take Ortiz out of the history of this sport (and some people are attempting to do that as we speak), and 2006's records never exist. Take 2006 out of the sport's history and you're at a completely different level of interest, media acceptance and CBS, Showtime, and others never get into this game in the first place. The most important fight in getting mainstream interest was a crap third fight with Ortiz and Shamrock. Buy rates mean something to company profitability, but in the media world, ratings are king, because it's a world they understand. What very slowly got the mainstream media into MMA, and as Dana White likes to remind me, took me from one place in life to another, is the media couldn't deny the ratings of the Ortiz-Shamrock match in 2006 on Spike when in 18-34 males it beat several games of that year's World Series. Was that the two best fighters in the world vying to see who was really No. 1? No, it was just a match that the two combatants and the promotion made people want to see more than any other match up to that point in history. And those viewers seeing that crap fight were so turned off by it, that a few months later, when the natural build led to Ortiz vs. Chuck Liddell, the company's bank account grew like never before.

We watched people piss in beds and piss in fruit and jack off on sushi, and guess what, more people still watched last night's PPV than any non-boxing event in history most likely. But some guy cutting a WWE-style promo, which Frank Mir and Michael Bisping both did better than he did on television over the past week, is going to turn off more people than he turns on. Hell, if guys in WWE were cutting WWE style promos as good as Mir, Bisping and Lesnar, WWE would be the one whose business would be turning around. When you actually think about the argument, it's almost absurd.

Could it hurt sanctioning in New York and Massachusetts? It's a weird world we live in and anything is possible. In a logical world, that punch Dan Henderson threw was 100 times worse, but you never know how things can mushroom. But I'm guessing it will have no effect. But you never know.

If you are consistent in your beliefs, that's cool. If you're a reactionary fool on this one, calm down and look at the world, and sports in general. When boxing people say what Lesnar did was worse than anything Mike Tyson did, I'm baffled. Did he bite a man's ear off? Did he threaten to eat any children? He cut the best and most talked about promo of his life and what will be the single most talked about promo of the year. And that's bad? Why, because he came from WWE? Why don't they blame the University of Minnesota while we're at it. Is anyone aware of how Lesnar acted as the U of M wrestling matches during his junior and senior year when they had dual meets against the other powers and fans booed him out of the small gyms? Dana White can say Lesnar was acting, and he has to, but he was just being himself, ratcheted up a few notches, because he is in the sports business, which is why he trained his ass off. But he's in the entertainment business, which is why 1 million or more people plucked down $45 last night.

Why is he now the biggest PPV draw in the world since Oscar De La Hoya is now retired? And by the way, when Oscar De La Hoya set his record two years ago, answer this question: Was the reason he set the record because he had an adversary who was or wasn't playing a villain role on purpose to drum up interest in his match?

Because Lesnar became a celebrity from WWE, and because of that, a lot of people like paying to see him fight, either to beat people up, or to get beat up. Who drew more new fans to the sport this past year, St. Pierre, Anderson Silva, Fedor or Lesnar?

Some great athletes really aren't nice guys. But that doesn't diminish them as athletes, nor hurt their sport one iota. In the plethora of stories, how many people mentioned how many new fans Lesnar has made for UFC with his fight with Mir and fight with Couture getting hundreds of thousands of first-time buyers? One of the key reasons UFC 100 is going to set records and has already started setting them even before the first PPV returns have come in, is because Brock Lesnar came from WWE and he can really fight. Guess what? The fact that some people look their noses up or have nervous breakdowns about the latter part of the statement is exactly the emotional reaction that makes him so valuable to the sport in the first place. No, it's not the WWE. You have to really be able to fight.

What Lesnar did by ripping on Bud Lite, particularly come so soon after the Dana White/Loretta Hunt deal, was absolutely bad for the company. That's the companies leading sponsor, and if I was Dana White, I'd be furious over that one. That was stupid, but I doubt Lesnar was aware of the White/Hunt thing and how everything went down from that. He was just trying to be funny, and actually, if it wasn't the lead sponsor and the timing wasn't absolutely horrible, it would have been funny. Hell, that was the one thing he said that almost the entire crowd cheered and laughed at live. But that line also had zero impact on fans paying money to see him beaten the next time he fights.

But for every MMA fan who criticizes Lesnar's behavior as bad for the sport, it was not even within an earshot of the two worst things of this past week. Just in the last few days, what did Quinton Jackson do a reporter? And then the professional fighter as opposed to a blowhard pro wrestler nearly got into a fight with another fighter at the show last night? Has Lesnar ever got in a situation while at ringside at a UFC show that he ever nearly came to blows with someone? And it's not like Jackson had a spotless track record over the last year. Or what if Lesnar did what Dan Henderson did, which was something a whole lot more significant?

But it got nowhere near the reaction. It's all about emotion and frame of reference. GSP is a babyface that people wanted to see win, and they were happy to see him do the right game plan to achieve his victory. Dan Henderson was there to shut up a loudmouth Brit who was obviously playing a role. And he shut him up, and then shut him up once time extra for bad measure. Lesnar was a heel people wanted to see lose, and were furious to see him succeeding with a game plan that was working. All of those elements were part of the emotions of the night. The goal, in the end, is to make people care.

The history of what has drawn the biggest PPV numbers, what made the sport and saved the sport is a lesson very much worth examining for anyone arguing about what is good or bad for the future of the sport. That duality of the reaction of the crowd live, and a large percentage of those who complained about Lesnar's tactics (but not all), says something pretty significant about MMA and its fan base.

That's not even a bad thing. But it's simply accepting the truth of what all of this is, as opposed to people who live in the world of pretend. And then somehow complain about pro wrestling.

--In the top 100 things being searched for on the Internet on Google as of a few hours ago:
2. Lesnar vs. Mir
4. UFC 100
7. Rena Mero
9. Lesnar interview
11. Fedor
13. Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping
16. Georges St. Pierre vs. Thiago Alves
18. Henderson knockout
20. Jonny Jones vs. Jake O'Brien
39. UFC post fight press conference
41. Mark Coleman vs. Stephan Bonnar
59. UFC results
68. Shane Carwin
95. UFC 101
99. Brock Lesnar UFC 100

That's not a sports list. That's everything in the world. Gatti's wife is No. 1. Aside from stuff related to Gatti and UFC 100, there is nothing else in the top 100 related to sports.

--Coverage of Lesnar was also the No. 1 news item of the day on Yahoo! at one point today

Miller and Danzig fought the jello death match special.


This was one of the few times I actually thought a guy might be seriously hurt. The way his necked was all cranked before the 2nd shot looked bad.

I also thought Bisping might be seriously hurt. First time I've seen a knock out and not got the buzz feeling from it. I actually felt quite ill and worried when they showed Bisping out cold. Henderson outclassed him and Bisping will need to go back to the drawing board after that loss.

Brock Lesnar is so big even in the heavyweight class. Will be hard for a lot of fighters to fight against that weight and power when it's on top of you.

Weight difference or not, Akiyama was very disappointing. He was so tired after the first round and I cannot see how the judges awarded the fight to him. One judge even gave him all 3 rounds! Madness and stinks of a little bit of a fix to get the popular Japanese/Korean fighter involved in the UFC.

GSP looked awesome again. Is there anyone left in his weight division to challenge him now?

Akiyama was competing in Judo at 81kg (178.5 lbs) so I imagine it is possible for him to get a little lower. Although he is carrying a lot of muscle for his size so that is a big factor.

I definitely think it is something he should consider, he didn't look like himself out there. Whether it was ring rust or new surroundings, i don't know.

It had been suggested that after the Misaki KO he had lost his reactions but I think that is bullshit. After all, LeBanner KO'ed him just as bad if not worse.

I hope we can finally see him face off against Anderson Silva and do what BJ Penn failed to do against him.

I have a feeling Swick and Hendo will get thier title shots first though.

But he also said that the winner of Carwin/Velasquez will get the next title shot.

Fedor won't be signing anytime soon i'm afraid. He wants the freedom to fight in other orgs as well as being contracted to the UFC. Plus he wants to fight in the SAMBO Championships, which the UFC won't let him do either.

He confirms it at the 4:30 mark, should be a good fight. I fancy Carwin to KO Cain.

Confirmation for me that Akiyama won the fight. He definitely had the 2nd round and I think the other 2 could have gone either way.

At the time i thought Belcher should have got the decision as he seemed to do the more significant damage but it was a very even fight.
