You Don’t Bring Sling Shot To A Knife Fight And You Don’t Talk Smack , Then Not Be Able To Back That Shit Up ……………

As much I loathe it , I find US athletes so full of shit wanting to talk smack and then when they have their ass handed to them they essentially have nothing to say in defeat when they’ve been exposed as a piece of crap. That being said if you’re an avid MMA fan as I’ve become in recent years as I now find professional boxing about as interesting as watching a political debate or the latest GOP raison-de- etre de jour in Donald Trump . Suffice to say if this is essentially the face of Conservatism in America then fuck it !

Slide show for your perusal .

Saturday night UFC staged its latest event UFC 129 at the Rogers Center in Montreal, Canada . The event itself was headlined with the welterweight title defense of George St Pierre making his eighth consecutive title defense against the unbeaten Jake Shields former titlist within Elite XC and Strikeforce . Shields was said to be St Pierre’s sternest test over the course of his already illustrious career . And anyone who has been a fan of MMA will know that St Pierre has been in with the very best within the division .

The undercard had its litany of bouts that if anything may well be the most enticing card put together by the UFC in quite while . You had Randy Couture a former champion at both light heavyweight and heavyweight divisions facing Lyoto Machida the Brazilian martial arts specialist seeking to reassert himself within the light heavyweight division having lost his title in a rematch with Mauricio Rua . Shields came into this fight playing the part of the villain and if anything chose to viewed that way but if anything what might be even more unpalatable as to his position was the fact he chose to denigrate the champion by questioning his integrity and legitimacy as a champion . Well over the course of the five rounds of this title bout all questions would be answered and unfortunately for the challenger it was his own legitimacy as the number one ranked contender that actually had to be questioned because his own display was simply mediocre given his so called record coming into this bout .

Jake Shields like St Pierre’s previous opponent Josh Koscheck simply proved that talking smack and not being able to back the shit up essentially proves you to be nothing more than an ass wipe and a pussy ! Having taught the martial arts to members of the military while serving , I can say that I’ve enough of an insight into MMA . I’ve over a decade in experience of karate having attained a black belt , practiced not only that particular art but also savate , tai chi , ai-kido and krav-magav . These styles have in principle are taught to various military units around the globe . However within UFC and the genre of MMA it is essentially Brazilian ju-jitsu developed by the Gracie family, that has become the essence of the sport along with Greco Roman wrestling.

Throughout this bout the experience title holder simply showed us why he’s viewed as one of the best pound for pound fighters within the sport alongside Jose Aldo and Anderson Silva . St Pierre and Silva if anything , because of their already global popularity are viewed as the faces of the sport. But Aldo has already begun to make a name for himself having carved his way through the bantamweight division to become its most dominant fighter. But it remains to be seen whether or not Aldo will continue to make that division his domain by right or seek to win another title within the UFC possibly in the lightweight division in a possible challenge to the champion there , Frankie Edgar . But that would be predicated upon Edgar making a successful defense of that title in rematch against number one ranked challenger Gray Maynard . Jake Shields simply showed why for all of his experience he simply brought nothing at all to the table as St Pierre exposed him as a flawed fighter despite Shields’ expertise as ju-jitsu specialist. Simply put St Pierre used his prodigious martial arts talent as being a karate , ju-jitsu and styling boxing array of jabs . But if anything it was St Pierre’s use of his feet and particular his round-house and frontal kicks that dominated this bout . St Pierre added to his already impressive resume’ with his eighth successful defense of his welterweight title and a run of nine consecutive wins a record within the welterweight division of UFC .

Now with this win a possible big money match-up now awaits St Pierre as UFC President Dana White looks to put together what will undoubtedly be the biggest fight in UFC history with St Pierre meeting the Brazlian middleweight champion Anderson Silva in catch-weight none title bout. It is a fight that the majority of MMA fans would like to see . And the though the sport has found its niche within the sporting landscape of North America and in many respects it is and has now been outstripping the viewership for many of the PPV boxing bouts now shown on cable . And that if anything now gives us an indication as to why the sport of boxing has now fallen from grace so fast . Simply put , boxing no longer puts together any real marquee bouts that the fight fans there really want to see. I mean let’s be honest here , who the hell wants to see an aging Shane Mosley —- fight —– Manny Pacquiao when the former three time multi division titlist , Mosley , is well past his prime ? In truth Pacquiao , himself, now fights , merely for the money and in particular to pad the wallet of his promoter Bob Arum , as Pacquiao remains his only valuable asset in his stable of fighters .

I know that there might not be the vast array of MMA fans out there who will surf the net and perhaps even come across this piece . But I simply want to let many of you out there know that there are some of us about who think highly of this fast growing sport that has found its popularity not only here in North America but also across the globe in some of the most unlikely of places . Granted , there are but only four states where MMA isn’t sanctioned legally within the US but over the course of time that will undoubtedly change as the sport makes its presence known even more so and then and only then will the various state legislatures such as New York will find out that once sanctioned they too can profit greatly from seeing this sport provide it with a great deal of money from the economic and financial impact . The Rogers Center was completely sold out with in excess of 55 ,000 fans there not only to see their home town hero George St Pierre defend his title but also the rather special undercard ,

  2. Still don’t like this “sport”….they outlawed cockfights and dogfights (course that didn’t stop Vick), but allow “intelligent” humans to beat the hell out of each other. How many concussions does a boxer get in a career?

      There’s more done by UFC and the medical staff on hand to monitor the fighters at their sanctioned bouts than is actually done by the NHL , NBA and NFL combined to deal with their players. Shit we’ve seen how moronic the NFL and the union (NFLPA) there have in dealing with the issue . They’ve been in denial for years and it wasn’t until their being pressed on the issue that they came into the twentieth and twenty first century and friggin’ well admitted that their was a cause and effect with regard to their sport and the injuries suffered by the players and their neurological disorders .

      Boxing on the other hand simply doesn’t do anywhere near enough . Five international governing bodies and not one of them in fact comes under any control of a sovereign government as to how they actually conduct themselves . The WBA , WBC , IBF , WBO and IBO have carte-blanche to do as they please meanwhile prominent promoters such as Don King , Bob Arum and Oscar de La Hoya simply don’t give a shit as to the actual well being of the fighters . They are in essence this era’s equivalent of the slave owners during the era when slavery was big business . Making money has become their mantra no matter what the costs are .

  3. I was working that night so I didn’t get a chance to catch the action but it looks like fans got their money’s worth.

    What’s the future hold for Couture? Is he going to keep on fighting?

    If so, why?

    And what are you plans for the upcoming Pacquiao fight?

      The fans got their money’s worth and a great deal more . UFC fight cards when there’s a title bout and marquee fighters part of the ensemble are way more entertaining than the crap that’s put together by Bob Arum , Don King or Oscar De La Hoya for that matter . Is it any wonder that De La Hoya and his company are actually now co-promoting MMA bouts ? They know where the sport is heading and that boxing is now on its last legs . .

      Couture knew that after his ass hit the canvas from that kick by Machida , he was not only out of it , but way past it and the point of no return ! He might have the body of a guy far younger guy but his brain and mindset are that of someone who’s becoming an octogenarian ! He’s old and it showed in this fight .

      Pacquiao is liable to do so much damage to Mosley that he’d better have sex with his wife before the fight because I doubt that his brain will be able to send the message to his genitalia for him to get an erection during sex because Manny is liable to knock his friggin’ head off his shoulders . Mosley hasn’t had a decent fight in years . After the bout I can’t see Shane raising anything but his thumb because his brain could well be turned to mush . And for him performing any conjugal duties well let’s just say those days could well be over .

      As to the fight itself I’ll probably hit a sport’s bar to watch it rather than paying $49.95 for the privilege .
