    Awesome and quick work once again Grappo.

    Is Paul Harris yanking off feet even exciting anymore. You just know the shit is coming AND HE STILL GETS THEM. Rousimar and Imanari need to join forces as the Footbusters: A dynamic duo of fighters waging a 2 man war against Legs, Feet & Ankles. Started after they end up in an orphanage after their parents were kicked to death by supermodels.

    There can’t be enough said about how truly amazing Barboza’s kick was. The fact that Etim looked like his brain shat itself before he hit the ground was icing on the cake.

    Despite the cagegrab this may have been a career defining victory for Aldo. He entered the fight a champion but when he ran into the crowd and started a mini riot he may have transcended into a demigod/supreme being to his countrymen.

    It was a true mma moment, I clapped so hard my gf had to remind me I was not Brazilian.

    And the Nobel Prize for Fiction goes to Blackula Jonez.

    Fantastic night of fights. 

    Rumble had a chance if he didn’t’ gas-out like that.  Oh well, maybe he’ll remember than cutting and clean diet aren’t mutually exclusive.  Vitor got a meh win, that will hopefully get him knocked out by A-Bomb again.

    Aldo cleared his throat.

    MANBEARPIG!!!!

    I was at work and my boss decided to rent it at a slight cost of 950$ for the PPV. A cheesy MMA gym was opening in the area and 50+ people descended on us for their opening party. I watched the first 2 rounds of the etim barboza fight and was sure i was gonna watch it to a decision. Then I heard 100 people scream TABBAAAAARNAKKKKK (equivalent of holy shit in french). half the people there were watching UFC (mma) for the first time. That kick kicked off an amazing main card and made so many girls/guys/old men/ boxing fans into new mma fans. I spent the rest of the evening educating people and I enjoyed it. I was sporting to cockfighting shirt too.

     

  • kvelertak

    Cool deal letibleu.

  • frickshun

    Way to steal Grappo’s thunder, Leti. And thanks for single-handedly growing our sport!!

  • theinsaneoneJustinMcCully

    good fights and good reffing all night

  • iamphoenix

    who counts screams? That’s just weird. Or is that just Canadian?

    Anyway, thanks grappon, now i don’t have to download this because i just saw it right now!

  • Letibleu

    Grappo, thanks as always ;)

  • ghostboner

    Holy shit Silva got dq’d! I couldn’t hear shit and didn’t see the hand raising. I assumed he won via illegal punches. It’s about damn time they started enforcing that. Also, I’m no spellerologist but I think it’s “coif”. At least if you were talking about his killer hair I think it is. If you were talking about a fart that comes out your pee hole, then it’s gotta be qwough.

  • Grappo

    haha, it will be once he’s wrecking ranked opponents.

     

    Also, I’m no spellerologist but I think it’s “coif”.

    Thanks. I thought I had it wrong.  The one and only time I will ever use that word and I fuck it up.  And in front of literally tens of people.  I HATE MYSELF!!!!

     

    Also, awesome story Leti.  It looks like the Brazil shows are the definite go-to cards when you want to introduce people to the sport.

  • Morghen

    The second that Massenzio TRIED to escape and didn’t get that foot out I knew it was over.

    If I’m a professional fighter and RPH grabs hold of my ankle, I’m immediately tapping. Yeah, yeah, “wurrior spirit” and “Jesus didn’t tap” and all that bullshit.

    Fuck your warrior spirit. I’ll keep my tendons/career.

    ALSO: With all the talk about rival soccer hooligans hating on each other, I had a couple seconds of, “Fuck. Aldo’s gonna get knifed out there.”

  • Grappo

    Was that red and black flag he held up soccer related?  I thought I heard a shitload of boos when he did that.

  • Letibleu

    Joe Silvas O face again :p

  • CAP

    Yeah the Silva fight ending was awkward I’m not sure how I feel about Rogan dismissing the back of the head shots completely. Sick sick card though new fans should be hooked after that.

  • iamphoenix

    he looks so retarded.

  • Letibleu

     

    PURE AWESOME

  • frickshun

    Leti–>please make a family reunion pic with Bisping & Etim’s KO faces…..

  • Letibleu

    yeah, Dan Miragliotta gets that a lot

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    He literally got knocked stupid.

    Great night Leti!

  • OlyReigns

    Silva got robbed. There where a couple to the back of the head but that tends to happen when people turtle like that. The shots that did land to the back of the head were not the ones that ended the fight. Joe did acknowledge the hits that landed to the back of the head, it was Silva that said they ALL landed clean.

    I think there is a bigger problem in what to do when a fighter hangs on to the cage and prevents a takedown. I see that as a major point of contention. A hugely unfair loss of position and stamina. It takes a lot of energy to go for a takedown just to have someone hang on as bad as Aldo did.

    All in all, great night of fights. Gotta feel bad for anyone heading into Brazil to face a Brazilian. They get their fighters amped up. Canada seems to get their fighters anxious.

  • OlyReigns

    It’s ok though Canada, I would still much rather live there then anywhere else in the western hemisphere.

  • Letibleu

    who said we would let you move in?

  • Grappo

    Did Omigawa tap, or was he just trying to clasp his own hands/break Yuri’s grip but couldn’t reach since Yuri straightened out?

  • OlyReigns

    Oh I know you wont let me move in. :( I have looked into it.

  • Blackula Jonez

    UFC + Brazil = Guaranteed violence.

  • iamphoenix

    Interesting tidbit, Omigawa is japanese for Oh My God.

  • KeyboardWarrior

    I think Terry Etim had a question right after that kick landed

  • Letibleu

    yea, the question was “wtf is my name”

  • Letibleu

    this is NOT my work, made me laugh out lout

  • CAP

    Sure looks like Omigawa tapped in that gif. Surprised his arm looked ok after that. The gif also showed Rumble tapping I didn’t notice that before and thought he went out.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I didn’t notice that before and thought he went out.

    Naw, he was just so gassed it looked like he was out.

  • frickshun

    Grapp–>they didn’t have the right cam angle to be sure. Looked like he started to tap but then our view was obscured…..

  • Grappo

    yeah, there is no angle for once Omigawa gets rolled, and the ref is out of position for a couple of moments.  This is the best I can cobble together from a couple fo different angles.
