Here’s some news and notes regarding the weekend on shows I don’t care enough to post specific blog entries on:
Murilo Bustamante ran over Antonio Rogerio Nogueira like a truck at the MTL team finals … his team beat his former student’s team 4-1. This wasn’t the first truck to run over Nogueira, but I bet the last one wasn’t driven by his former coach. Murilo was humble in victory, saying “You eat that you fucking bitch of mothers! Brazilian Top Team pissed in you Black House. How it is sweet! I’m fucked you good!”
Miguel Cotto beat Shane Mosley in a pretty dull fight. I thought Mosley was doing pretty good in the first round and then they showed him in the corner looking like he was in round 8 and I knew things would go downhill from there. Mosley’s retarded dad kept telling him to “Go out there and have some fun!”, perhaps the most technical cornering advice I’ve ever heard in my life.
Josh Haynes got knocked out in the third round of an XFC show on Saturday. No word yet on what reality show he’ll run off to this time. Word is this was a slugfest and Haynes took another brutal beating. If only he would start winning, he could be like the American Sakuraba!
Brad Imes fought on Saturday but it must have been in some weird alternate dimension because the results don’t exist anywhere on the net. It’s pretty strange that you can get live play by play on Korean MMA but you’re fucked if you wanna find out what happened on Saturday in California.
And finally it was a bad night for gaijin as Joachim Hansen and Antonio Carvalho both lost their fights at Shooto Back to our Roots 6. Don’t worry though, nuthuggers will continue to rank Hansen above everyone in the UFC lightweight division no matter how many times he loses.
