The Incredible Expanding UFC 129 Aftermath Post

STUPID GEORGES. Can’t finish a fight with one eye and can’t spell ‘fine’ either. The UFC might as well take him behind the shed and shoot him in the face with a shotgun. HE’S DONE!

(via GSP’s tweeter)

When asked about whether GSP vs Nick Diaz is even possible due to the complications between UFC and Strikeforce (ie Showtime), Dana White glibly replied “I imagine I could do whatever I wanted to do if I really wanted.” So I guess now all we have to do is sit back and see what Dana does and doesn’t want to do … give the fans what they want or save a few bucks because he doesn’t want to share with Showtime.

Lyoto Machida’s crane kick hit Randy Couture so hard his teeth fell out of his head:

“He thought he got hit with a punch,” White said. “I went up into the octagon to talk to him. I went, ‘Are you alright?’ He says, ‘Yeah. He hit me in the tooth.’ And the tooth fell out while he was showing me. I said, ‘That’s alright. We’ll get you a new one – a better one than that – when we get back to Las Vegas.'”

If only Randy hadn’t retired last night, he could have worked his way up to a Polident sponsorship.

Next up for Jose Aldo: Chad Mendes on August 6th. The Aldo who showed up (or rather didn’t show up) last night has a pretty good chance of losing, especially if what we saw on the ground with Hominick wasn’t some exhaustion induced suckage.

Dana White has no idea what you’re talking about when you say the main event sucked. Why, what ever do you mean???

Steven Seagal manages to defeat my attempts to hate him over calling Machida ‘Machida-kun’ by receiving a sweet phone call from his baby son during this interview with Ariel Helwani. Now I have to acknowledge the fact that he’s a fucking human being. SEEEEEAAAAGAAAAAAL! *shakes fist*

Greg Jackson defends GSP’s performance. His answers: He was fighting with one eye. He was fighting with one eye. He was fighting with one eye. He was fighting with one eye.

    if diaz has one of those strikeforce do what you want contract I guess the UFC could hire him for a fight

  • kvelertak

    I think his contract is up.

  • Marley Marl

    Sick of GSP’s boring fights, he seems like a wimp, show some fucking aggression and get in there lol…I fast forwarded through that shit.

    Enjoyed the card though.

    Unibet has odds on Silva vs GSP. According to them the fight will take place on January 2nd 2012.

  • NinjaCodah

    GSP’s problem is that he’s just way too fucking good, yet won’t take unjustified risks. For him to take more risks and finish fights would require having him face more complete, or bigger, fighters. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he would suddenly become a submission expert at 185. But right now at 170, he simply doesn’t need to divulge his many skills and that makes it hard for anybody to figure him out. He’s doing his best to have a long and very lucrative fighting career. Idiots and meatheads can complain all they want, but he’s the one raking up the millions, not them.

    Shields is getting praised by Jackson, but the fact of the matter is that he was getting beaten by a very conservative, half-blinded GSP.

    “Greg Jackson defends GSP’s performance. His answers: He was fighting with one eye. He was fighting with one eye. He was fighting with one eye. He was fighting with one eye.”

    yeah he was fighting with one eye, BECAUSE JAKE SHIELDS FUCKING PUNCHED HIM IN THE OTHER ONE AND BLINDED HIM. why are people saying oh he fought with one eye, like it was some birth defect or some shit. he got punched in the eye and blinded by a guy everyone said was the worse striker in the ufc and would get knocked out in the second round. lol

  • Jim Harbaugh Scramble

    Shields need to be getting bashed more than GSP, he fucking did nothing to try to win that fight. He at least could have done a Kos and winged wild punches when it was clear he was not winning a decision.

  • shillyer

    I think jakes punches must be hard then they look. I look at what I think cause the eye issue (first minute of the second round best angle is from jakes conrner cam) it was straight and I think it landed on gsp’s eye with georges eye wide open. but it did not look special.

    I did want jake to start wingin more punches and kicks though  

  • Reverend Clint

    hardness had nothing to do with GSP’s eye problem. softly rub your knuckle on your open eye.

  • scissors61

    Yeah, I would agree that Shields’ power (or lack thereof) had little to do with the damage to GSP’s eye. more a matter of landed a decently thrown punch in a fortuitous location. 

  • Rob2Kx

    Couple questions about Steven Segal… Does he speak Portugese? And does he actually train those guys? Like put in the time at the camp for a days/weeks? What exactly is his involvement here? Steven Segal is the new wonder pill. Like Viagara for your foot.

  • glassjawsh

    @thingvolds – everyone praised urijah faber for fighting mike Thomas brown with two broken hands. your logic is fail

  • thingvolds

    nah people are talking like fighting with his blind eye is something like fighting with the flu, or with an injury sustained in training, or after a bad weight cut. its not any of those things, it shouldnt be an excuse for gsp not to finish or an excuse for his shit performance once again. he had to fight with a blind eye because he got punched in the eye by a very rudimentary striker he was supposed to take no damage from and knock out early. enough with the blind eye excuse.

  • Reverend Clint

    he had a whole round to beat the shit outta shields before he turned cyclops

  • frickshun

    ^^I agree.

  • Redping

    yeah, one of the most boring displays by one of the most appealing characters in the sport. GSP is truly capable of being even more boring than lay and pray, while standing up. He is so desperately scared of taking chances that he might as well change name to Kalib.

    other than that though, brilliant card! only GSP let it down. Weird situation where you’re cheering for jake shields because he’s probably the only person with the skills to finish it

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Holy shit, I actually agree with Volds on something – People give an injured person more respect than the injurer. This has bugged me since a Hughes slam cracked Beej’s ribs.

    Jake brought it and Georges couldn’t close the deal on a another tough opponent.

  • P W

    The cage is a dangerous place to be and the longer you stay there the more likely it is for you to get injured. Let’s hope this eye thing is a wake-up call for GSP and that he has come to realize that the faster he puts guys away in the octagon, the prettier his face will be at the after-party.



  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Now there’s some video that sorta suggests it was a range-control paw that got a finger in GSP’s eye, and not the punch, so Shields can’t get all the credit yet.

    And PW makes a good point: Get in there and get it done.
