UFC 155 was a solid card, and like any other fight card, had its ups and downs, however I enjoyed it.
First off, the booing from the crowd was despicable. I don't care how boring a fight gets, but booing is not the appropriate response. These casual fans suck, and their dictation of how the fight should go, should not be their responsibility. These guys put in months of hard work, and follow a gameplan to get their win. These are the hardest working athletes, and they dont deserve to be booed. I'm with you MickeyKnox....DIE CASUAL FANS, DIE!
Congrats to Cain. I'm a big fan of his, and although I like JDS, it was awesome to see Cain prove his doubters wrong. He was on JDS like white on rice, and showed he has the heart of a champ. We all know Cain has power in those hands, but we learned that JDS has quite the chin, and the will to keep on fighting and never crumble when he's down. I'm excited to see who both get matched up with next. ONly thing that ruined such a great fight was the booing that shitful crowd gave to the fighters in the end. Shameful that JDS had to address that.
Miller and Lauzon was insane. We all know those guys can deliver. Both are tremendous fighters, and goes to show you that win or lose, you will earn fans and deep pockets for performances like those. My heart raced when Lauzon tried to pull off that Chonan-esque flying scizzor heel hook!
4 MW entered UFC 155 and 4 left with unimpressive performances. Belcher was the worst of the bunch. Kid has got great standup and although Okami smothered him, Belcher didnt capitalize the moments when the fight was standing. He has his reluctance and bad TDD to blame for his loss. I wouldnt call Okami a blanket. He has always been the type to secure position and go for GnP but Belcher's active guard never allowed for any action to pursue. Good win for Okami, and shows he can shut down anyone.
Too bad for Boetch. It was one bad luck after another. Costa looked decent in the fight and it's one of those "what if" fights if Boetch didnt break his hand and didnt get eye poked. I would like to see a rematch, before we all start saying Costa is a top 10 MW.
