Just wanted to add that this fight reminded me of the NOS commercial. You know what I'm talking about...what in the world was T Browne thinkin'...prolly Sith Lord Greg Jackson telling him to loosen up and play around in there. He got a wicked right cross to the chin for that.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

I dont keep up with him to be honest, I was going off what they said on a show leading up to the fight, so I can't/won't argue because I really dont know>>

You haven't seen many Bigfoot fights have you? That was literally the best shot he has ever landed. In every other fight he has looked horrible on the feet. He couldn't even rock Arlovski for ****'s sake. The stars aligned and Easter Island Head managed to land one glacially slow, wound up punch to a one legged opponent who couldn't take advantage of the three minutes he had to dodge it.

Let's not try and make this win look anything other than ugly or imply that Bigfoot is actually a top fighter. Neither are true.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

The dude landed BOMBS on Fedor. Its just cause Fedor is a killer and took the punches. He was landing big shots at the start of his fight anf he has crazy heavy hands regardless. He isnt a good puncher but it diesnt change the fact thet he is crazy powerful when it lands.

Someone earlier said Struve beats Bigfoot. I'd like to debate that. Im a massive Struve fan but dont see a way he possible wins it. Engage it mahfuka.

In your opinion. I don't think he's that powerful of a puncher. You have to have some kind of speed to generate real power and he doesn't have that. Not to mention he punched Arlovksi for 15 minutes and couldn't rock him. That pretty much kills the him being a power puncher right there.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Well any guy who is 285 pounds of muscle is going to have a decent amount of power in his hands. He isn't doing the kind of damage he could be doing but that doesn't mean they aren't powerful.

This. His punches arent fast or crisp, but when they land it's lights out.

No one is neglecting it. But acting as though Browne had the upper hand before the leg iniury is flat out incorrect. Big Foot was winning the exchanges and was the stronger man. Browne's injury changes none of that. And frankly, it's his own damn fault.

I'm not saying Browne wouldn't have found his rhythm. But at no point did he look to be the better fighter.

Browne has pretty weak cardio, so he wouldnt have really improved on the opener.
