Look at that smug motherfucker. (via the UFC Facebook page)
The press conference has started and here’s the awards:
FOTN: Jose Aldo vs Mark Hominick
KOTN: Lyoto Machida
SOTN: Pablo Garza
Gate: $11,500,000 Canadian ($12,075,000 US)
Iron Forges Iron already has a bunch of gifs up.
Machida on how much Steven Seagal had to do with that front kick: “He always reinforced that to me, ‘Try that kick, it will land and when it lands it will work.’ So I give credit to him for helping me perfect that kick.”
Jake Shields on GSP’s eye: “I didn’t know he couldn’t see out of it.”
Those big overhand rights that worked oh so well. (via the Toronto Star)
More after the jump.
Via Cage Writer, Hominick’s forehead looking like it’s about ready to give birth as well. Props to Mark for doing better than anyone expected him to. Gutting it out through to the fifth and then taking over the last round was a little victory all in it’s own.
According to Sportsnet.ca, tonight marked the end of Georges St Pierre’s 30 straight round winning streak. I still don’t really know which rounds he lost to Jake Shields, but there you go.
Yeah, rub that fucking thing. Rub it good.
John Makdessi on his spinning backfisk KO:
“I knew I hit him well, but I didn’t know I knocked him out. I guess when you train that much, it’s just a feeling to know when to use it.I like to feel out my opponent first. It’s a true testament to my great coaches and my kickboxing coach.”
On Dana tweeting that he’s going to win Knockout of the Night:
“This is going to change my life.”
Oooooor not. I bet all the guys who would have won KOTN on any other night than this still got a nice chunk of cash from the Dana though.
Esther Lin’s photographer spot was slightly … obstructed. The caption for this photo: “I’m going to try my darndest.”
Or neither? Seriously, I’m getting sick of this teasing shit.
