Ultimate Fighting Championship Reviews
Melvin Guillard Gabe Ruediger
UFC 63 is all about the smaller guys which is good because the heavy guys have been very disappointing. I missed the first fight but Jens got himself beat but here we go for the next fights. I'm going to type as I watch the fight which is a first...
Rashad Evans vs. Jason Lambert
Very much a non-stop fight with Jason Lambert working the submission attempts with Rashad doing his usual out working of people. Jeez say what you want about Rashad but that guy has a motor. So much energy, so much speed and so much ability. Rashad finally finishes a fight by getting a full mount and punching the guys lights out. Referee stopped the fight a little late for my tastes but if he would've stopped it sooner people would've been booing.
I love hearing George St-Pierre talk. He's such a Frenchie.
Here we go with what should be a banging brawl...Whats up with that mask Gabe? Gabe gets straight up handled right from the opening bell but thats expected when you're fighting Guillard. So fast, so strong. Its amazing how Melvin opens up being so dominate and then gets caught later during the fight. He barely survives the first round. Tito Ortiz seems to enjoy coaching as much as fighting. Wow, stoppabe by body punch for Melvin!!! I haven't seen that ever in UFC.(damn Joe Rogan just said the same thing) Good job Melvin.
Mike Swick vs. David Louiseau
This promises to be a knockout sort of fight. Louiseau should be hungry and back to fight hard and Swick is on his way up. We shall see.
Hey the middle of the ring meeting, they must be thinking of pushing the winner of this fight hard. Swick looks ready to rumble and is moving well. He needs to beat Louiseau in the first before he catches his bearings. Not much going on in the second round and swick ends the round on top. Takes Louiseau down to start the third. Swick loves that short shoulder shot. Mike Swick is very smart and doesn't let Louiseau use he great reverses from the back. Louiseau explodes half way through the third and man is he laying it on Swick. They finish hard with alot of good shots and Mike Swick is so lucky there isn't another round. Swick wins and as always he's a funny guy. I don't think I've ever seen anyone do a better interview than Mike Swick. He's got a good future in comedy if UFC doesn't work out but I don't think we've got to worry about that.
David Lee vs. Tyson Griffin
In a battle of getting foot through the door for UFC recognition. Hopefully these smaller guys should get extremely rowdy. I have no idea who to cheer for since I know neither well. They both look pretty mean. Before you can blink Griffin has Lee's back. A little more work and a rear naked choke victory for Griffin. *yawn*
Matt Hughes vs. BJ Penn
Time for BJ to put up or shut up in the re-match. Yack Yack Yack they replay all the usual pre-fight talk that really doesn't mean a thing. Wow they try hard to make it like WWE wrestling while claiming it isn't wrestling. Fancy little entrance for BJ Penn, cute. He looks ready to fight as always but I think this man could get up and fight anyone on any given day. Another cute little lighted entrance for Hughes with his Hank Williams Jr. entrance music. Matt Hughes is probably the most real warrior in all of UFC. Man BJ is young and will be around for a while regardless of this outcome. Both these guyars are in the zone. Lets see what happens with this matchup..
Wow what a first round with these guys having a very nice chess match of take downs and punches. AHH! Thumb to the eye. Great fight and I've got to say that BJ has won the boxing so far in round 1. Close. BJ proves with first round that he belongs there more than any of the previous few guys that hughes has faces.
Penn has the sickes t flexibility I've ever seen but gets taken down in the second. Matt lays some of his strentgh on BJ from the top like lightning BJ ends up on top. Wow what a move!!! Leg triangle to the head by BJ wow wow wow!!! Lets see what they're both made of in round 3.
Matt comes out for three and proves why cardio is key. BJ can hardly stand and Matt takes control. Gets BJ in a crucifix and beats BJ like a drum until its stopped because BJ can't get out. Looks like its up to GSP to beat this guy or nobody will. Hughes is an ass in his post fight interview. Very WWE wrestling like with GSP getting in and talking some trash of his own.
Great fight card to me. Much better than the previous few.
