    Default Michael Johnson

    edit: I meant Michael Johnson, sorry.

    When he came out in the 2nd round it really reminded me of Anderson Silva Vs Hendo in the 2nd round. They both came out with this look on their face like they were so pissed off and just started picking apart their opponent so fast. It is unbelievably rare for a fighter to get beat up so badly and come back and win in MMA. The phrase "mentality of a champion" comes to mind when I saw Johnson fight last night.

    On the other hand, I look at Browne's fight, where this is the first time the spotlight is really focused in on him and he starts the fight out by throwing stupid kicks without setting them up against an MMA veteran. I would call what Browne did a mental collapse, not unlucky. You can't seriously tell me that you guys think it was in his teams game plan to come out 5 seconds into the fight and throw shit like that? He was showing off and he paid for it.

    Michael could be a contender one day, Browne never will be, thats what I took from last nights fights.

    Browne threw some crazy kicks that you would never expect coming from a man his size. I was impressed with it and I don't think Bigfoot saw it coming. It's a shame that he injured his knee in the process because if he had won the fight last night he could have made the argument that he was getting close to a title shot.

    One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that Anthony Johnson will never be a champion in the UFC.

    That's what I'm assuming. And if you're gonna bring up Johnson I'd bring up Pierce as well. Both fighters came back from being nearly finished in the first and ended it early in the second with one punch. Was fun to watch. Really thought Aarron Simpson had it in the bag.

    Just because you get put in a choke hold that doesn't mean you were anywhere close to tapping. We have seen Ben Henderson in that position many times.

    He maintained his composure and recovered really fast hardly something you ever see from someone who was nearly finished.

    First, he got hurt standing!

    Second, that choke was fucking tight. He gutted it out and it actually gave him time to recover. Have you ever been in an arm triangle? I am good with that choke hold and it looked tight. Props to Johnson for not tapping, but it was close.

    Where's RD? Someone needs to start asking if all black people look alike to v3xi

    I haven't been as impressed with Johnson as others but one thing that stood out to me is that he looked less muscled recently. As that's the opposite of most of the guys when then join the Blackzillians, I wonder if he's getting more serious about focusing his gym time on technique. If his standup gets a little more varied in his attacks, I could see him moving up the ladder.

    Yeah I noticed it too. At the star of rd 2 I thought, "man this Castillo guy looks jacked, he'll probably gas". And he might have if not for the KO. Johnson is really becoming a well rounded fighter.

    The title had me puzzled.

    Yes Michael Johnson looked good in the comeback, as did Pierce. I like Johnson and was cringing when he got in that arm triangle. Thought he was a gonner. I enjoyed his striking in the second. Awesome short jab that put it away.

    Aaron Simpson looked good in the first round, but Pierce gutted it out and got the win.

    I like browne and think he will be ok (when his knee heals).

    I really enjoyed that bart p vs diego n fight. Bart P had that high guard on him in the first. I really like that high guard and have been trying to get better at that.
