    old Baroni is really going to have to do less flexing and more training if he wants to stay in UFC. No big suprirses there really... I want to see the ortiz vs belfort fight, apparently vitor was going well in the first and second then just dropped the ball in the third. poor old Vitor cant get a break.

    arlovski is an animal, and not just in looks!!
    i was hoping vitor was going to take it, looks like he ran out of gas again!! he still seems to have the punching power though

    Arlovski was awesome. He beat Sylvia in about 20 seconds or something, caught him with one very open cross, knocked him down and and went for GNP, then slapped on an achilles lock (which seemed to confuse the dumb commentators). Easy! Pretty annoying to watch though when you've waited for 20 mins of lame, crappy build-up! He looked in incredible shape too, seems like he could be around for some time.

    Disappointed in Belfort to be honest. I thought he was going to beat Tito, but Ortiz kept going for the takedown and GNP. Belfort didn't really do much in all honesty aside from one flurry of punches. Most of the time he was just defending and trying to fend off elbows and punches in the guard. Should have been unanimous IMO, can't understand how the second judge gave it in favour of Belfort. Truly out-fought. However, after making a good win and seemingly making peace with Belfort he proceeded to come out with his usual garbage about how he is gonna beat Chuck and Shamrock and they both came storming into the ring. I hope he does sign for the fight against Shamrock and he trains with Erik Paulson again so he can give him a beating. Even though he is older, I still think he could beat him.

    I really enjoyed the whole event, though I wish Bravo had found a way to at least show highlights of the Lytle/ Parysian fight instead of making me watch Mike Kyle. Arlovski just dismantled Sylvia and it was beautiful to watch :D
    I wish Vitor could sort his head out, that fight was his to lose, but he just let it go once a bit of doubt crept in as to whether he could finish Tito.
    I felt a bit sorry for Terrell against Tanner, he got chewed up and looked like a little boy against Tanner. I believe his time will come though
    I can't be the only one that wishes the UFC would get rid of these stupid Barbie interviewers and get someone who knows what they're talking about. All in all though, I thought it was a great show. Remember, if you live in the UK don't forget to email Bravo and thank them for showing the event

    i thought belfort waS winning until he ran out of gas. he threw some nice flurries, broke the clinch continually, and went for subs. then he died. horrible endurance. :bang:
    belfort won the first two rounds. ortiz did nothing, but throw taps from inside of vitor's guard. under pride rules vitor wins easily due to tito's continual head forward plunges. vitor had many opps. to launch some knees, but for the rules.

    My take on the fight

    I was pretty surprised, I thought Belfort was going to win within the first round. After the first round ended, i knew he wasn't going to win. Gotta hand it to Tito, though. He did well to weather the storm in round 1 and even dropped Vitor to one knee with a stiff left jab. Afterwards he tried desperately for a takedown while Belfort sprawled. Vitor eventualy just pulled butterfly gaurd and tried for a sweep, but Tito got into his full gaurd and started the Gn' P.

    Second round Ortiz was in trouble while on his back, but vitor seemed to tire out while dropping elbows. He eventualy just dropped into Tito's gaurd.at this point he did little to press the action, and when it was stood up you could already see the fatigue setting into Vitor while Ortiz looked more energetic. Ortiz then did a sloppy takedown which vitor did little to defend against. Then Ortiz threw some elbows from half-gaurd in the last 30 seconds or so of the fight.

    Third round began with Tito throwing a high right roundhouse. Went in for a takedown and caught a right, but still got the takedown. Dropped some more elbows in vitor's gaurd before they were both stood up. Tito went for a takedown right after the standup which was defended by Belfort pretty well until Tito eventualy got the takedown. At this point I was really dissapointed in Vitor. He just waited for the round to end at this point.

    I agreed with the decision, Tito was more agressive in all the rounds (though Vitor did win the second round with the ground and pound on Tito), pushed the fight more, controlled vitor well and landed good shots while on the ground. His style is admitably a little boring but of course he was going to go for Ground and pound, that's Vitors weakness and Tito's strength. I was dissapointed in Belforts lack of sub attempts. Only noticed him going for a kimura in the first round and the guillotine in the second. I didn't see much to show evidence of him training with BTT. I hope Vitor bounces back, though. He's still pretty young and has time to improve.

    I really enjoyed the show but I wish they would get rid of that porn star looking bird who interviews the fighters. Everytime she came on it made me cringe. She has no idea what she's talking about and keeps asking "what was going through your mind?". It would have been great if Mir or Couture did that job instead.

    bwahahahah @ Phil Baroni

    His after fight interview was brilliant (if a little bit worrying....)

    Night night sleepyhead....

    Yeah, 'Toy Soldiers' from his latest album.

    I wasn't sure whether Baroni would win, I've always thought he's too much talk, not enough skill, no doubting he's a great fighter, but god knows how he let himself get into that guillotine, think he was as shocked as I was afterwards, looked a total fool being interviewed.

    Arlovski is a complete beast, to even go into the octagon with a beard and hair like that means he's hard as nails, Sylvia had a massive weight/height advantage but got wrecked by Arlovski who hardly looks like he trains! I'll be looking out for that guy in future! But to be fair the fight did only last a few seconds, who knows what would have happened if Arlovski hadn't got that lock on.

    I've always been a big Belfort fan, and always disliked Tito, so you can imagine my :cry: when he lost. The guy has lightning fists and is built like an ox, but Tito's jaw is just that much bigger.... :bang:

    I'm sure vitor will be back for Tito soon, although to be honest I can't see Tito losing to Shamrock, he's too young and fresh.

    Apparently, the Pride president was very impressed by Arlovski's performance. Look out for Arlovski taking part in Pride's heavyweight devision sometime ;)

    in all honesty,how does everyone think he would go against fedor?
  17. faster than you

    faster than you Valued Member

    very well. arlovski is a technical striker, while fedor throws wild bombs and consantly leaves his head open.

    Arlovski and Fedor is a very interesting match. Arlovski is by far the superior technical striker, he's also got the reach advantage, but I'd say Fedor's got the advantage in the chin department. On the ground, I'm not so sure - I know they're both well versed in Sambo (I believe both have been champions in the sport and Fedor is considered a world class judo player). I'd really like to see these two guys go at it, if it did happen (and it probably won't) soon, I'd look for Arlovski to make it interesting, but I'd be stupid to bet against the Fedorinator; he's been on a tear since entering the sport and he's got the advantage of experience and frequently fighting against the best in the world. Arlovski's an amazing fighter to watch, and I think he'll have that UFC belt for a long time to come, but the UFC heavyweight division is not up to Pride's standard so he's not really been tested in the last couple of years

    My money would be on Arlovski.

    Whoever made the comment about him looking like he doesn't train - erm... I wish I looked like that and didn't train! He has an amazin physique to go with those skills!

    What I meant was that he looks like a hobo, I would never have pictured him as a UFC fighter if I'd seen a picture of him beforehand, sure he's got muscles but looks nothing like a Belfort or Baroni.
