Random MMA Thoughts Part 1

Posted 11-28-2007 at 06:22 PM by Damone
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.

Discuss.

Good blog, but people sure disagree with you about Dan Henderson at middleweight.
I know he lost to Carlos Newton but it was so early in his MMA career people blow it off but no explanation is really given to the other performances.

Completly agree on Varner. Guy is going to trash Razor Rob.

Henderson is overrated and has been ever since he beat Wanderlei. I mean not to take anything away from his win but he beat a guy who was in and out of the hospital right before the fight.

I still have hope for Riggs and Overeem even though they both disappoint me all the time. Riggs is 24 I believe so sooner or later he should put it together.

Rob will put Varner face down in the second round.

Joe Riggs is someone I used to put alot of faith in. When he finished Chris Lytle and I found out about him fighting Hughes I thought Riggs would be one of the biggest threats to Hughes' reign. After he was destroyed by Hughes I thought Diaz would do the same, Riggs had a very good showing in that fight. Rinse and repeat for every other fight since then

Henderson is overrated but I still think he beats Silva 9 times out of 10.

I think I may be the only one who agrees with you on Hendo. Dude is way too inconsistent to be on Top 10 P4P lists, at least as high as he is. He is a great fighter with big wins, but his losses and bad performances show he isn't game all the time.

Nice blog Damone.

Overeem - Personally, I feel the Alistair we saw in the Buentello fight was the same Alistair we have been seeing all these years, except with a better gas tank. Overeem just exposed Buentello. I mean, that is how Overeem usually fights. On that note, I really respect Overeem. Instead of trying to pad his record with meaningless wins, he fights the best opposition he can get. You got to respect that.

Riggs - Meh, I never really liked this guy. I mean, it is fun to see him get battered and all, but I never really saw the potential that others have in this guy.

Agreed on Joe Doerky. Loved the Herman fight, even though he got knocked senseless.

To be honest, I have not really been keeping up with my WEC. I do know Razor Rob, and how he is supposed to be great and all(seen a couple of fights, he looks solid), but I fail to see where you come from by picking Varner. Was Varner not the guy that got subbed by Hermes?

Mishima is a funny guy. Hopefully he can stop losing now.

Hendo is over and underrated at the same time. Some newer fans just jumped on Hendo's nutz because he was a double division champion, and they were getting pro-wrestling flash backs. Others(well not recently anyways) used to/still underestimate Hendo's abilities. I was one of them. That changed once he KO'd Wandy.

Varner did get subbed by Hermes but he also beat Gilliam and Sherron Leggitt both of who are pretty good.

Jamie Varner is a real underrated fighter who should still be in the UFC IMO.
