UFC 92 some results and blougs on youtube.

I founded the UFC 92 results shocking but proves that in this sport anything can happen. 1st let me say that the Nog vs. Mirs fight was a shock with me thinking that Nog had an edge standing or on the ground. Mirs tighten up his stand up game and Kodos to Mirs for not jumping into Nogs guard until you knew he was hurt, very smart fight. I still like Nog after seeing him as coach on the UFC team. Mirs is cool too. Wacthout champ here comes Frank again, this time you can't stand with him.

The Griffin Vs. Rahsad fight was close I think Forest put too much stock in his chin and was way to relax on the ground. Standing I think the Champ was beating Rashad with his legs high and low. Seemed like Rahsad was getting tried asorbing those leg kicks and blocking the head kicks. Forrest is still a champ in my books he just got to stop thinking he loves getting hit, so much. The new champ came down from heavyweight and can hit.

Another outcome I couldn't fore see was Silva the Axe murder Vs. Jackson fight. Having beaten Jackson twice very convincingly I didn't think Jackson had a chance and was just waiting to be clinched and kneed out again. Wrong or maybe right Silva was waiting for that chance but forgot to keep pulling the trigger from outside. Jackson's developed better striking skills since their last fight and standing on the outside not leg kicking and punching gave Quntin a strikers chance. Some on youtube saw Chuck Liddels dislike of this outcome think this was a racail thing, I was shocked by the replies on Youtube. Whereas I just saw it as Chuck feeling like he has a better chance at beaten Silva who he had just beaten rather then the bigger Jackson who beat him twice.

There was a lot of racail talk on the Youtube blougs I don't understand that because wheather you are Black or White, Hispanic or Asain unless you put in the sweat and time in training it ain't got nothing to do with what you can do or what race you are. It has all to do with how much you sweat and train. Why waste time on hate?

I was wrong about Mir and Rampage, had them both figured to lose. Only one I did call right was Evans over Griffin. Crazy night, but some good fights!

Everyone says this but I just honestly jut can't see it. He's done shell blocking for years, the only reason he landed the hook was because Silva hesitated at something in the middle of his combo and stayed in the pocket, the danger area.

Honestly, I actually cannot spot what Jackson does differently now to what he did in Pride, unless you're talking about pressing the fight more or better clinch control.

i think rampages biggest improvment is in his boxing

what do you mean by shell blocking? you mean using your arm to block hooks? if you do that is damn effective

Yep, that's what I mean by shell blocking, try it out and you should see what I mean by 'shell', it's a common term.

My point is that he's been doing it for years, way before he ever fought Wanderlei, when he trained with Oyama.
As for his boxing, he still throws the same way, has abut the same upper body/head movement. Aside from pressing the fight his stand-up really does seem the same to me. That's why I think Wanderlei is still the better fighter that had the bad luck of getting caught early.

there are so many things to consider when comparing fighters. i don't think its fair to say the rampage still moves the same way as he did in the past, he's been traiing with a new camp and new boxing trainers, maybe he has gotten better you just can't see it. maybe the axe murder has taken one to many shots to the head and just isn't what he used to be.

when two guys with that striking power get into a fight, it could only take a split second lapse of anything to get your head taken off. its the way fight's go, not always to the stronger, bigger or better fighter, sometimes people just get ktfo'd. we can all be better fighters for a second, long enough to get the job done.

most of that card ended up being highlight reels, it was an awsome night.

This was the best card the UFC has had in a long time, possibly the best ever.

I was also shocked about Mir over Nog. He's improved ten-fold, I was completely impressed by him, for once.

Rampage over Silva - I didn't know how to call that one, but I'm glad Rampage won. As for his boxing, he's had good boxing for a long time. He beat Silva the same way he beat Chuck...with good clean boxing. Chuck and Silva are brawlers. They're effective, but sloppy. Rampage took advantage of the fact that they both leave themselves open by dropping their hands ALL the time. He landed a classic counter-punch that was right on the button. Nothing fancy, just great technique.

And I think Forrest was winning until, well, until he got KTFO. LOL. I'm not so sure it would end the same way a second time. Forrest was really controlling the action and getting the better of the exchanges.

But, all in all it was a great card.
