Javier Vasquez studies the Way of the Blanket

The UFC might have decided to do away with formalities and make Crispy Grispi the immediate #1 contender at 135 pounds, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other bantamweight fights going on in the final days of the WEC with title implications. Another fighter from Urijah Faber’s Alpha Male fight camp / boy band, Chad Mendes, is knocking at the door and hopes to use his smother-style wrestling to beat Javier “Showtime” Vazquez at Thursday’s WEC 52 event. Fortunately for Javier, he already has experience dealing with world class blankets:

“This entire camp I’ve worked with Antonio McKee, and nobody can do a better job of slowing a fight down and controlling from the top like Antonio does,” he stated.

“(Chad) is not going to bring anything different or better than what Antonio brought. Antonio was having a real hard time holding me down, so I don’t think (Chad) will be able to do it, to be honest.

Vazquez continued, “The more he tries the hold me down, the more he’ll get beat up; and the more he tries to scramble, the more likely he’s going to get caught.”

This is where I’d go through Antonio McKee’s immaculate resume as KING OF THE LAY N’ PRAYERS, but I’ve done that so many times. How about I just assure you that between McKee and a one ton cinderblock, I’d say McKee is probably trickier to get out from underneath. So it’s nice to know Javier is coming in prepared for the humping he’s about to receive.

    grispi and vasquez are 145/featerweights not bantamweights

    and even though this will be a good fight i will give javi the edge due to having more offensive tools, it will also be nice to see how mendez reacts to not winning rounds/coasting on maintaining top position.

    My money is on the Mexican. They’re starting to win fights :P

    is this the guy Joe Rogan talks about? he schooled Eddie Bravo I hear

  • Nachtfalter

    Could be a pretty boring fight, action-wise (I see Mendes on top of Javi, tenderizing him with half-assed GnP for three rounds, pretty much), but I can’t wait to see it, anyway. This fight will tell us if Mendes is all hype or if he could actually be the perfect blanket to beat Jose Aldo.

    Everyone schools Eddie Bravo


    ^ahh the eddie bravo hate was bound to come out.

    I don’t think Mendes is ready for a title shot. I know the guy, he’s cool and very skilled. But he wouldn’t have anything to offer Jose Aldo. He still needs a couple years of training under his belt to really challenge him.

    Should be a good fight.

    They never moved away from their motto in UGG Classic Short UK  designing, that is to stay simple, and in the simplicity, they introduced the polka type designing in purple on the inner parts of this collection.  To contrast with the polka design, they chose Black as the color of the surface, and the white outsole, made in solid rubber of vulcanized quality simply synchronizes smoothly with the overall appearances.  The inner design cheap UGG Classic Short goes perfectly with the leather made swoosh on the upper, and the overall design pattern will give you a silky smooth feel once you put on the pair.  In addition to this smooth finish, you will get the golden glimpses on the limited portions, like the lining on the outsole, on the tongues, on the buckles for shoelaces etc. If the simple yet smooth finish is your choice this UGG Classic Cardy 5819 Black season, then this collection is the one you have been waiting for.
