UFC 100: Blind Judges, Hendo KTFO of Bisbing, GSP, and Lesnar Goes Wild

Tyler WilliamsAnalyst IIIJuly 12, 2009

Is it me or are the judge’s blind or what?

I think they might be, but as I am so used to fighters getting screwed by the judges, I wasn't shocked by Belcher losing.

No actually I was, they must have been watching a totally different fight.


Like wow Belcher was picking Akiyama apart piece by piece with the standing.

Akiyama did have some good counters, but I don't think it was enough to pull off a split decision (IN MY OWN OPINION).

You could see it in Belcher's face that he knew he got ripped off as well.

All in all it was a great fight but the wrong fighter's hand was raised (Akiyama).


Henderson KTFO of  BISBING!

Wow just simply wow.

Henderson looked great, he had me reminiscing his Pride days.

I didn't know Henderson had it in him, well actually I did, but I didn't think it would end in that fashion.

Good thing I went with my first instinct on my fantasy pick and Henderson didn't have me regret it one bit.

It looked like Bisbing was either scared or just really cautious of Henderson's hammer of a right hand.

But I can't say Bisbing was that cautious, otherwise he wouldn't have circled around Hendo's right like he does in his other fights.

Hendo's eyes were laser point accurate and once he got his right angle, he pulled the trigger and to make sure his UK foe was finished, he dropped a bomb of an elbow.

Man has MMA earned the right to be called mainstream or what? I was excited to see ESPN’s Sports Center have that vicious KO on the Top 10.

I watched Sports Center twice so I got to see the amazing KO back to back and it was great.

Although U.S. lost the TUF season, Henderson put some smiles on his team’s faces. I sure was grinning.

I will admit though, Team UK simply had the better fighters and work ethic but Henderson Vs. Bisbing was a great way to cap off TUF season nine.

As for Bisbing I don’t know what happened. He was doing a decent job bobbing and weaving and doing his best to counter.

But Bisbing just didn’t seem like Bisbing. He looked out of place in my eyes.

Maybe this is just for the fact that he was going against a better fighter in Henderson.

But I believe this will be a learning experience and we will see Bisbing back in great form.


GSP Is a Beast

Okay there was no doubt in my mind GSP was going to take Alves down, but the way he did it was wow.

It was estimated on ESPN that Georges took Thiago down 10 times during the fight.

I don’t know why but it seemed to me that it would be a higher percentage.

I wasn’t impressed on the number of take downs, I was impressed that it seemed effortless.

Alves did an awesome job of maneuvering to escape the grasp of GSP, well for a while he was.

In that fight I learned St-Pierre is stronger than he looks and just seems unstoppable. I also learned that Alves is not ready yet, as GSP had an answer for everything Alves was trying to throw.

Like GSP said this was a learning experience for Thiago and he will be back better than before.

What's next for GSP?

Who could GSP face next in the Welterweight division?

I could see Martin Kampmann receiving a title shot if he becomes victorious over Mike “The Quick” Swick.

Other than that I think it’s time GSP moves up in weight and goes toe to toe with Anderson Silva. Just thinking of that match up gives me goose bumps.

If anyone could bring the true fighting spirit out of Silva it would be Georges St-Pierre. Well, after Griffin does.


Lesnar Goes Wild! And Possible Future Match Ups

Damn you could tell Lesnar wanted this fight so bad.

But wow did he go crazy at the end of that fight or what?

I am surprised he didn’t go even crazier while pounding Mir’s face into ground beef.

Mir looked like Frankenstein when he got back up. I felt bad but in a way I guess that's what happens when you talk trash to a “ MONSTROUS APE.”

I expected Brock to talk a little trash at the end of the fight but not like that.

It was funny in a way, but at some point you at least have to show your opponent a little respect.

Not too many would want to step in the Octagon with the man beast Lesnar, but Mir did.

I have a feeling this feud is not over yet!

The following comment had me laughing hard on the floor!

“I’m drinking a cooler full of Coors Light, Coors Light because Bud Light won’t pay me anything.”

Lesnar just doesn’t give a f***!

Some have criticized his statements as inappropriate, but I still laughed.

Lesnar would be on his best behavior though after having a talk with Dana White in the bathroom according to MMAFrenzy.com.

He even came out drinking a nice cold bottle of Bud, not Coors, and even stated,

“First and foremost I want to apologize,” Lesnar said. “I acted very unprofessionally after the fight. I screwed up and I apologize. I apologize to Bud Light. I’m not biased, I drink any beer.”

Lesnar also noted he would be drinking Bud Light all night.

Now with that madness aside let me ask the question: Who is next for the Undisputed UFC Champion?

My pick would be Shane Carwin.

Carwin is an awesome match up for Lesnar, both big guys with similar styles and should and would make up for a great fight.

But it seems Dana might put those plans on the back burner or just simply planning ahead.

The following was stated by Dana White at the post-UFC 100 press conference posted by MMAFRENZY.COM:

“This whole Fedor thing has been going on and on and on. I keep saying this and that about him and he keeps waiting. Eventually, Fedor’s going to be here. I want Fedor. I want him to come to the UFC and everything else. [Brock Lesnar] just became the heavyweight champion. We’ll end up getting that deal done. And then we’ll do Brock vs. Fedor, and it’ll be a huge fight."

Man I am down to see that, fight let’s just hope the deal get’s done.

Fedor has to sign. Who else is there to fight outside of the UFC?

No one that comes to my mind, also the UFC Heavyweight division is starting to shape up like the other divisions with great young talent.

This would be epic if this deal gets signed, but we’ll see.


UFC 100 Overall

UFC 100 was great and surpassed my expectations. It was a great night of fights.
