It's Been Awhile. Again
Yea, I started my new job officially in December, so the ability to write on a consistent basis has been a tough one. Now that I've settled in maybe I can pump out a few new blogs over the next couple of weeks or even days. For now, however, I will just give a few of my thoughts on some of the top stories of recent times.
Nick Diaz Popped for Pot
Eh you know what? If he doesn't want to follow by the rules, let him go to boxing or do whatever. I've always felt that he is a very talented fighter in the MMA world and for him to leave would to be a shame. Maybe if the suspension were to straighten him and his attitude out. Wishful thinking.
Brock Lesnar Done.
I for one, was never sold on Lesnar. I felt that he could've been top ten but not best in the worlt. Unfortunately his chin, and decline in health caused his early demise in MMA. Back to WWE he goes, no doubt in my mind , as Lesnar has always found good ways to make money. He's already been UFC Heavyweight Champion, so why come back here and face stiffer competition when Vince McMahon will probably pay him out of the ass to return to a lighter schedule?
This has potential to be a good bout. I wasn't particularly a fan of their 2nd showing, but it'll be a nice addition to the card for nostalgia purposes. I was sorta hoping for Lidell to fight just ONE more time. Probably for the better he doesnt. I think Griffin still wins, but Tito will give it his all if it's really his last fight.
UFC on FOX
Tough luck for Dana. Most causual UFC fans want to see a complete slugfest everytime. I saw it coming with the heavyweight main event with Santos/Velasquez. Not so much on the most recent card. I don't believe it lost many viewers as people just probably thought it was a boring card, and I'm sure a majority of them will still watch the next one(Since it's free). If I were Dana, I'd give a full UFC numbered event on FOX with limited commericials, not just two or three fights. At least five. That's not too much to ask, and it'd be just a one time occurrence, and I believe it would help more in the long run.
Excellent movie. Best film I've seen related to MMA yet. Nick Nolte pretty much turned one his best acts yet. I'm impressed by your performance! Anyone seen Haywire yet? How is it?
Stick a fork in em'. They're done! Sucks, but it appears to be true. I really enjoyed a majority of their FREE cards on showtime and how they tried to do different things that what the UFC production was doing. Oh well, it is what is. I'm sure Showtime will start their on brand of MMA after the contract with SF is up and, it'll be basically Strikeforce 2. ShowMMA.
Alright, well I'm done for today. I just had a little time for typing today so maybe I will be able to do more in the future. You have no idea how busy I am at the moment! I sure as hell didn't get tired of typing blogs. Just had plenty of obstacles blocking my way in the process. See you soon! Sooner than you think.
