This Is The Re-Watch: UFC 42: Sudden Impact.

Wow, David Loiseau was only 23 when he faced Mark Weir. And hey, he didn't totally suck, which is surprising, since the guy is just the shits nowadays. Big John is looking puffy and really pissed. Maybe Weir sold him a bad batch of crumpets? Phil Baroni is taking Goldie's place in the booth, and Rogan and him have some cool chemistry. Rogan's the one who actually asks him questions, and Phil's pretty good at answering them. Weir could've been a good fighter, but the guy just couldn't perform to his level. He looked great against Eugene Jackson, but he's way out of his league here. Nasty freakin' GnP from David Loiseau. Weir is pretty much dead. Yeah, yeah, I liked this, as I feel it's one of the Crow's best performances. This was his UFC debut, and it's against a tough guy.

Rich Crunk vs Hermes Franca was some hot shit. Phil pumps up Rich Crunkilton big time, and for his one and only UFC fight, he looks good. Dude has some spectacular throws. The first one he lands on Franca was so damn swank that he could've lay n prayed for 3 rounds and I'd still love the shit out of this fight. Franca goes for some fun sub attempts in this fight, and Rogan almost creams his pants when Franca almost gets a kneebah on Crunkilton. I like Crunk's GnP, and there were some really fun stand-up exchanges, though not exactly pretty. Wow, Crunk throws some girly looking kicks to Franca's legs while Hermes is in the buttscoot position. Ugh, Franca gets a deep armbar and actually breaks Richard Crunkilton's arm in sickening fashion. Crunk, to his credit, fights till the end. Very fun fight. Totally recommended. It's sad that this fight is so underrated.

"UFC Veteran" David Strasser gets his best win of his career against Romie Aram, who was widely touted at the time, going undefeated and beating guys like Joe Stevenson and Jerry Bohlander. Strasser is one of the ugliest dudes who has fought in the Octagon. Seriously, he's up there with Crocota. Romie's from the same camp as Javier Vazquez and Manny Tapia. He just couldn't really do much against Strasser. I liked Strasser's mount in this fight.

Sudo vs Bang Ludwig was fun. Genki was in full performance mode, and could've won this fight by submission, but decided to ham it up instead of really fight. Rogan mentions both guys' fights against the great Masato, and I'm disappointed that Joe Rogan didn't talk about Masato's pretty looks. Big John actually gets annoyed by Genki's antics, as did Phil Baroni. I liked Genki's takedown in the first round, and Sudo's always been a really solid grappler. This fight is famous for the stand-up in the third round. Sudo was destroying Bang on the ground, busting his nose and Big John stops the fight to get the doctor to check the cut and then it gets restarted on the feet. Many threw a shitfit, but hey, those were the rules, sadly. I scored it 29-28 for Genki, actually. US judges don't dig Genki's antics, it seems. Bang's UFC career is often overlooked. Dude went 2-1, and his one UFC loss was against a solid fighter, and that decision wasn't exactly the best. Genki's eye is terrifying.

Evan Tanner is rocking the bald look. Rich looks the same. Dude hasn't aged one bit. Tanner got whomped in this fight. I don't know, running at Rich Franklin isn't the smartest move. Rich is in stalker mode, and finishes Tanner in the first round. Many complained about the stoppage, but I liked it. Rich Franklin is so dreamy.

Cabbage is, like, a low rent version of Mark Hunt, except he isn't as fun. Remember when Joe Rogan used to mention dudes fights in other shows? I miss that. Rogan sort of sucks nowadays. Yummy, a clinchfest, but at least it doesn't go too long. Gosh, that first round was dreadful, but it picks up in the second round. Wow, Alvarez sucks. Dude looks like the lovechild of Joe Rogan and Matt Brown, too.

Lawler took Spratt down early on, and could've won the fight had he done that repeatedly, but man, dude ate leg-kicks in a nasty manner. You could literally hear Rogan getting a boner by watching Spratt ruin Lawler's leg's. Ugh, just disgusting. Lawler is totally zapped after eating one leg-kick. What the hell, Spratt takes Lawler down and mounts? lol wat? Lawler touches gloves like a ***. Lawler quits in the second and Big John calls him "baby." Robbie was not so Ruthless in this fight.

I really liked Sherk vs Hughes. Not a total asskicking, but Hughes definitely won the fight, and he did so while not training hard. Seriously, he, like, trained for maybe 2 weeks. Sherk's pre-fight training package was quite insane. This guy has been training like a freak for about 7 years now. How is this guy not crippled yet? Hughes shows that he's just a better fighter in this fight, as he smashes up Sherk, and gives him his first loss. He had to work for it, though. Crazy moment: Sherk is all "No water for me!!!!" during the breaks. Matt Hughes used to be a top 3 fighter.

I really liked this show, as you got fights like Crunkilton vs Franca, Sudo vs Ludwig and Hughes vs Sherk. Totally recommended.

Discuss.

Yeah I popped this dvd in the other day and rewatched it. I enjoy it, but the standup in the Ludwig/Genki fight is annoying.

I thought it was a really lack luster show. There was some good fights but their was no real name fighters (at the time) and a general lack of excitment.


Compared to the great cards that were UFC 39, 40, 41, 43 and 44 this one looks really weak.

I miss the Genki antics. I think people in America didnt really get the whole fact that he wasnt just a fighter he was a show man.

I agree the Crow definitely isnt that fighter he once was but hes looked decent at least lately. Hes not fighting scared like he was for awhile after Rich took his soul, hes seemed to have gotten his shit some what together lately.

Sadly, the only fights I've seen on this card was Tanner/Franklin and Sherk/Hughes. The rest of the card sounded much more fun. Good review man.
