UFC 111 is ion the books and it’s official, my UFC 111 predictions sucked as I went 4-3 on the night much of which I will blame on Frank Mir getting in the ring and worrying more about how “calm” he looked vs actually fighting. I will get to that as I get a little further into my UFC 111 recap and results, it won’t be any crazy long post as I plan on getting a good jump on my work load this week.
UFC 111 Results
Ricardo Almeida vs Matt Brown
I really would have liked to see Matt Brown take the win here, but it wasn’t meant to be. Hey, at least Brown can say he showed up for a fight and got choked out at UFC 111.
Mark Bocek vs Jim Miller
This fight got a little hairy at times for Jim Miller and for a few moments it looked as if Bocek was going to pull of the win, Miller ended up closing out the fight strong and won on the judges cards. Jim Miller by Unanimous Decision.
Nate Diaz vs Rory Markham
I really need to stop picking fights based on who I would “like” to see win vs who I actually feel will win the fight, I knew Diaz would own Markham in this fight and he did just that. Nate Diaz by TKO.
Kurt Pellegrino vs Fabricio Camoes
The New Jersey kid Kurt Pellegrino battled like a madman in front of his hometown crowd to pull off a sweet submission victory via choke.
Jon Fitch vs Ben Saunders
Another excellent outing by Jon Fitch proved to be WAAAY too much for Ben Saunders, it would be nice if some of the new “mainstream” fans of UFC would learn to respect and understand technical fighting instead of booing every time the fight goes to the ground. Fitch did exactly what he wanted and needed to do in this fight, holding Saunders from getting off the ground with anything. Jon Fitch wins by Unanimous Decision.
Frank Mir vs Shane Carwin
If this were a video post I would start it out screaming like I did in my Insane Limos TV Commercial. Can someone please explain to me why Frank Mir seems to think the solid look on his face and his calm demeanor will win him fights? Seriously, I will never understand the theory behind hanging against the cage and taking shot after shot until something actually gets through.
It’s a good thing that Mir has really mastered the art of running his mouth, because based on his lay down ass kicking from Lesnar and his hang against the fence beatdown at the hands of Carwin he hasn’t really done anything else. I honestly can’t remember if he landed a punch or not, a kick? Anything? Sorry Mir, maybe it’s time to drop that extra muscle and drop down in weight. Let the super heavyweights do their thing.
George St. Pierre vs Dan Hardy
Domination, domination and a little bit more domination. Not sure if Dan Hardy ordered the complete domination or if George St. Pierre just included it in the menu on his own, all though St. Pierre didn’t really do any significant damage he did control EVERY aspect of the fight. I mean EVERY aspect, on two separate occasions it looked as if St. Pierre would be taking one of Dan Hardy’s arms home as a keepsake, Hardy showed INCREDIBLE heart and refused to tap on either occasion.
I guess the question is…. Who now? Who is next on the list to get slaughtered at the hands of GSP?
Leave a comment and let me know who you think is the best challenger for GSP is or what you think the next move for Frank Mir should be, I am curious what your thoughts are.
