Should be exciting, Mir is a submission wizard on the ground.
Can't wait.

I wish I was, but I am going out tonight...Mir is no joke, you cannot overlook his submissions, they are deadly...but Lesnar is an animal


I hope the normal Sylvia does not show up cause he is very boring if he does, he needs to go after Nogueira

i like lesnar and Nogueira

I like Mir and Sylvia myself.
My boy Marquardt will be impressive and Tyson Griffin is a freak.
Solid card.

Spoon, I wasn't able to get it (our cable co botched it). If you don't mind, let me know how Kyle Bradley looks once his fight is through.

He's making his UFC debut tonight.
Do you know the guy personally? Just curious.
I'll keep you posted, hopefully his fight makes the ppv.
If it does, it won't be live.

He's from Denham Springs, LA which is about 15-20 miles away and one of my college roomates graduated high school with him so we watched a bunch of his earlier fights. He's a pretty cool guy from the few times I met him, real down to earth.

Well, KBeezy aint in Baton Rouge anymore :lol:

Chris Lytle vs. Kyle Bradley

Round 1
Chris Lytle came out and absolutely smoked Kyle Bradley in just 33 seconds of the first round. Bradley tried to get off first with a hard punch, which Lytle countered with a right hook. A right hook followed. And another. Bradley tried to retreat and cover but Lytle was right on top of him, unloading with shots until referee Yves Lavigne stepped in to save Bradley. After Lavigne separated the fighters, the still-dazed Bradley pulled guard on Lavigne and tried to punch, but the referee defended himself and subdued the groggy fighter.

Your boy was simply outclassed.

Lesnar loses by leg lock, welcome to the world of mma.

Yeah, we knew Kyle was going to be a heavy underdog, but I did expect it to go past 33 seconds.

I was able to see Lesnar/Mir. Lesnar came out very aggressive, and he's obviously strong as hell. Almost looked like he got caught up in brawling and lost his concentration.

He didn't get caught up in the brawling. He got caught by one of the best submission fighters in the world.
Mir kept his composure and he was getting beat up, scrambled for position and grabbed a foot lock.
Good night.

If Lesnar learned some submissions he could be dangerous based on his strength and wrestling alone. But his inexperience got the best of him last night. I'm sure we'll see him again soon, he brought most of his WWE buddies for a taste of UFC action. Too bad they watched him lose.

Spoon, my old roomate forwarded me this email he got from Kyle (he sent it to a large group of family and friends once he got back into the hotel). End result from the weekend, stitches to the face, torn medial miniscus (in his last training session 3 days prior) and a bruised ego. But he's hoping to get back to fighting at his natural weight and get back after it....

Chris Lytle is such a nice guy. He made it a point to seek me out after the fight in the dressing rooms. The NSAC had a representive follow him around because they werent sure what he was looking for me for. But his intentions were all good.

He finally caught up with me in the doctors quarters as I was getting stitches. He shook my hand and let me know he understands how tough it is losing is such a fashion. He let me know that he watched alot of flim on me and was really impressed with my standup and how exciting I was. He told me he was going to personally talk to Joe Silva and plead my case for getting a shot at my own weight class with some time to train.

I really respect the guy a ton. I know he is a family man, and I wanted for him and myself to go out and put on a great show and get a shot at the bonus (60k for each fighter involved in fight of the night.) Our styles would have made a good case for that reward had I lasted.

And so I listened to him while getting stitched and apologized to him for not getting that chance for the bonus, and told him I was truly embarrassed. And then he said, "you'll be back in the UFC at 155 bro. trust me." I just smiled and said, "Yeah maybe in a few years."
