Observations From My Couch: UFC Fight for the Troops 3 – “Ultimate ‘Merica!”

Observations From My Couch: UFC Fight for the Troops 3 – “Ultimate ‘Merica!”
    • Watching Yves Edwards get knocked out makes me have a sad. Isn’t there some sort of Matt Hughes/Chuck Liddell-esque retirement plan Zuffa can offer him? I’d rather see Edwards behind a desk than in a cage at this point.
    • As awful as Chris Camozzi’s face looked after his bout with Lorenz Larkin, it was nothing to how horrific his tattoos were. Is he the recipient of a gypsy curse or something? That ink goes beyond mere “poor choices”.
    • You could tell how good of a striker Germaine de Randamie was on the feet by how screwed she was on the ground. Which is to say, yeah, she’s probably one of the best strikers in women’s MMA.

  • The beating Dennis Bermudez delivered to Steven Siler was so thorough, Siler is now Bermudez’s indentured servant for the next seven years.
  • Roop, there he ain’t. Roop, there he ain’t.
  • Was Bobby Green’s bout-ending kick too low? Did James Krause ham up that blow and deserve the loss? I don’t know, so I’m asking you what you think.
  • Tough break for Colton Smith, who lost to Michael Chiesa after a spirited back-and-forth battle. Meanwhile, I still don’t know who the hell those two were.
  • Somewhere on a farm in the frozen wilds of Dagestan, a donkey was watching with pride on an old TV as Rustam Khabilov delivered that spinning back-kick to Jorge Masvidal. “I taught him that,” said the donkey. “Whatevs,” said the pig.
  • Yoel Romero would be a lot better if he didn’t stop to do Tai Chi breathing exercises in the middle of fights.
  • Alexis Davis has about two or three more wars to go before she starts to look like Nick Diaz.
  • Good win for Tim Kennedy, but he dodged a major bullet by not fighting Lyoto Machida. A major bullet.
