Tim put on a "clinic" of how to slap a mans shins and run for 15 minutes.

Did anyone seriously think anything would happen other than Lombard KOing him in the 1st?
This post likely wouldn't annoy everyone if you actually put yourself out and made a prediction on fights instead of showing up afterward to say I told you so.

A clinic? Rofl. He pulled a Condit on him, except it was twice as bad.

Tap his leg and run away.

C'mon man, you can't defend the Diaz/Condit fight with your life and some how approve of Boetech's game plan against Lombard. He took the Condit game plan to another level.

Pretty sure I spoke on this when the fight was announced.

I specifically remember debating some guy who thought Lombard would get subbed because of leg locks are illegal in judo.


As far as every other fight, I've called it exactly as it went before it happened.

See the Pearson-Soti thread and the Nate-Bendo fight.


The Nate-Bendo fight I predicted the fight from the finest details to the end result.

From browsing your recent post history I don't see predictions all I see is you coming back saying that its exactly how you predicted it. Maybe you did months ago when the fights were announced but why no recent predictions? Not trying to pick an argument but from somebody browsing it appears you try to leave a big gap in time so nobody remembers if you were wrong but you can come back later and point out how smart you are if its right. Do you kinda understand my point and why people are reacting negatively to your comments? Why not make your predictions for TUF finale now so people can look back at you in hindsight?

And honestly if your that good at predicting bet some money, I make decent money overall betting on fights and I really only win a little over 50% but usually only bet on guys that are heavy underdogs who I think are stylistically bad match ups or are greatly undervalued or opponents overvalued. I did lose a pile on Penn/Rory though and lost a bit on G-Sot as well without realizing there was bad blood, once I saw that I kinda had a feeling he would fight retarded and lose me my money.

I never said I approved of how Boetch beat Lombard. But it worked.

He showed how to beat Lombard, he showed the holes in Lombard's game, and that really isn't how Boetch normally fights.

But it's exactly how Bisping fights. And Bisping would smoke Lombard by using that same strategy only 100 times more effectively.

I don't approve of point fighting, but it's here to stay. And Lombard, who would have been a lot of fun to watch in the UFC 7 years ago, is a relic of a time gone by and will never amount to anything in the UFC unless he's spoonfed guys who aren't savvy enough to avoid and outpoint him.

And by the same token, people who think Condit truly beat Diaz, can't now turn around and say Boetch's win doesn't count. It was the exact same thing.

I'll never be happy about what Condit did to Diaz. I think it was cowardly, but the real reason it bothered me so much, is because I was a HUGE Condit fan too and wanted to see the war these two promised us. Nick showed up intent on delivering that war, Condit shit the bed.

Whose disputing Boetsch's victory?

You said he put on a clinic, that was not a clinic, winning a split decision is not a clinic, I'm also not sold on Bisping a guy whose notorious for getting rocked in fights could beat him either, it's the same reason I don't believe he'd beat Vitor, he always gets rocked once and Lombard and Vitor seem like the type of guy who would capitalize on a stunned Bisping.

Hector has no ******* clue how to cut off the cage. He was chasing Paul Harris around like an idiot. Anyone with just decent footwork would have been able to land and circle out time and time again and Lombard would be left standing around like a.....wait a minute...
