Hi everybody!

UFC announced some pretty sick cards coming up. Cards that may make this one pale in comparison. A word of advice folks – don’t just a card by its cover 🙂 This one has all the making of a good fight card. For one, I care far more about anything but the main event. Not that I don’t respect Mighty Mouse or Dodson. They are worthy headliners. It’s just that I don’t find myself really rooting for either one, you know… which is to say…

Let the predicting of UFC 191 coming up this September 5th on PPV commence. (All credits go to UFC/Zuffa for all photos.) We ride!

Don’t forget to get back here by Monday morning for the after MMAth!

And of course, don’t forget to watch UFC 191 on PPV – This Saturday, September 5th!

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii-t’s TIME!

The Morning After:

1. Paige VanZant is young and pretty. But she is also a fighter who comes in for a fight. A total domination, culminating in a transition from mount to a perfectly executed arm-bar win. I myself have compared that transition and application of the submission move to Ronda Rousey. No one in his right mind can put her and Ronda on the same level, but the execution of that move was pitch perfect. a 10 out of 10. Give her a couple of years with the right coach and we will see the beauty IS the beast1 for 1.

2. Boy am I disappointed with Blachowicz’s (lack of) effort… so passive, no gas in the tank… and to think that he was supposed to face RumbleAnderson capitalized and even if that was not the most inspiring fight (to say the least), he got the job done. 1 for 2.

3. At around the 3:50 mark of the first round, the crowd started booing… Anthony Johnson got crowds used to quick KOs and when he chose to take Manuwa to the ground (Which might have proven the best tactic later on), the crowd found it boring for some odd reason… Fast forward to round 2 and Rumble explodes right out of the gate with a vicious KO. Done and done. 2 for 3.

4. I am forever a Mir fan. Frank made two significant changes since that painful loss to Brock Lesnar back in the day. He added a lot of weight and stayed away from BJJ for the most part. Both I consider to be big mistakes. A loss of speed that cost him the ability to take fights to the ground, and as a result forcing him to stand and trade with – mostly – superior strikers. It was a decade too late unfortunately… 2 for 4.

5. Not much to say… Mighty Mouse is the GSP, Anderson Silva and Jose Aldo of the Flyweight division. An even easier title defense than their first fight. Johnson made all the right adjustments for Dodson, avoided his power and completely dominated for 4 out of the 5 rounds.  3 for 5.

See you folks again before UFC192!
