Mike fought like a scared punk
What the hell was that???? Mike kept closing his eyes and turning his head like an untrained junior high school student...what a bitch.... it was embarrassing to watch....

Mike was a total disappointment to me. A self-proclaimed "street fighter" that closes his eyes and turns his back on his opponent? Strange.

As for Matt, he's a bit more confusing. Obviously, the guy can take some shots (although his chin was never truly tested in his fight with Mike), and when he hurt his arm in training, it was because he didn't tap when he couldn't get out of the armbar and twisted the wrong way, so he can take pain fairly well, and doesn't seem to give up quickly. However, his punches seemed really lacking, and he has NO submission technique. There were at least 3 occasions in his fight where he could have easily put Mike away with a guillotine choke, but didn't even attempt one. He also needs to be MUCh more agressive with his striking. Even though he turned Mike's face into raw meat, he seemed to be holding back.

I wasn't impressed. Same thing with Ed's fight last week. Just not as impressive as I expected him to be. :dunno:

i am waiting for the re-run to se this.
i would say that matt is new to mma and submissions but he is a hard worker and can make it far in the ufc. did matt take mike down at all?

That fight was the biggest piece of crap I've ever seen. You guys are right, Mike looked like a little bitch with the windmilling arms and swinging with his eyes closed.

Even my wife was like, "what the hell is this?!" Shit she could have beat Matt's ass! And you mean to tell me that "world class", "olympic caliber" wrestler, Matt couldn't hang for 10 mins without getting faint and feeling like he was going to puke? What does that say about his conditioning?

I'll be interested to see what Matt brings next time he fights in the semi's, probably not much.

everything that has been said i totally AGREE with!!!!!

the worst fight i have ever...and i mean ever seen!!!

i really wanted mike to win, but after seeing that crap im glad hes truely a better fighter then he is and im sure a lot of you other guys are too!!!

i cant describe how utterly dissapointed i am with that fight. almost makes me wonder what the screening process is for the show? how did those 2 bananas make it? :thumbsdown:

TheSuplexor 06-02-2006 03:30 PM

well is matt really a world class caliber wrestler? He is for the deaf but how does that stack up for regular olympic wrestlers?

I couldve seen[and have] a better fight on the street than this one turned out to be. ultimate fighter my foot, I feel lied to. I dont tune in "ultimate fighter" to watch that kind of garbage.

I will say I enjoyed the other fights with forrest and the others Im not remembering their names right now, but cabbage ate way too many punches though. he stood there like silvias punching bag for the most part.

The last 2 weeks were just that, the last 2 weeks. It was tito's best against ken's worst (Matt/mike) and ken's best against tito's worst (ed/danny). That's not justification for mike wimpin out, but you understand why. These 2 guys are the two guys that will probably win the whole competition.

Both of them weren't great fights, just a show of the dominance of Matt and Ed.

:thumbsdown: for the fights
:thumbsup: for the winners
