Random MMA Thoughts Part 1

So yeah, I'm really, really digging this new blog dealy, really good stuff, and it'll be interesting to read other's work(s) on here.
So yeah, I don't know why Alistair Overeem continues to be the inconsistent mess that he is. He's talented, sure, but it seems like he's wasting his talents by being a lazy blowhard. He looked pretty solid beating Buentello, though, which is pretty much the standard Overeem we've been seeing since...forever. Next, he'll probably lose in embarrassing fashion, hopefully to Jonathan Wiezorek.
Joe Riggs, Joe Riggs, Joe Riggs, why must you be so, so inconsistent? You can never get 2 solid performances in a row anymore, and you continue to look promising and then embarrassing. I was impressed with his whomping of Eugene Jackson, but come on, it's Eugene freakin' Jackson! The guy doesn't know the difference between an armbarr and a plate of pancakes.
Joe Doerksen has never had a boring fight, and a million fun one's. I don't know, I just dig that a lot.
Joachim Hansen fought like he was on 1,000 mg of Valium in his last fight. I hope to never see that Joachim ever again. Get back to knee'ing fools to death, dude. You can't be dropping decisions to mediocre fighters, you just can't.
Jamie Varner should smash Razor Rob, and I'm going to be happy when he does.
I really miss the old Mishima. The happy, fun, entertaining Mishima. The old, balding, awful Mishima is terrible to watch.
Dan Henderson might be the most overrated fighter out right now. I like the guy, I respect the guy, but he's been way too inconsistent, especially at MW, winning fights he shouldn't have won and just looking sluggish.
So yeah, that's all for now.
