The Future Beat Down of an Unknown Fighter

Brock Lesnar

As many of you might know at UFC 81 Brock Lesnar had only his second MMA fight and only his first in the UFC. He came out like a beast and quickly took, the one time champion, Frank Mir down. The fight looked as if it might end right there with Lesnar on top pummeling Mir with a barrage of punches. That would all end when Lesnar threw an inadvertent punch to the back of Mir’s head. Referee Steve Mazzagatti then stopped the fight and gave Lesnar a point deduction for the punch. It seemed as if there was no warning ever called during the fight to let Lesnar know of what he had done and to warn him of further action.

According to an interview with mmajunkie.com Steve Mazzagatti said that he did issue a warning to Lesnar for punches earlier in the round. Mazzagatti continued to say that he did have issues hearing because it was so loud in the arena. He admitted that he was unable to “hear myself give the warning” on the video. Now I understand that hearing Mazzagatti on the video and Lesnar hearing him in the ring are two different things, but I want to know is WHEN does Mazzagatti issue the warning. He said that it was after the first barrage of hits he issued the warning and the second was when he deducted the points. Now I have seen this fight multiple times and only see one time when he Lesnar punches Mir in the back of the head. I believe that the deduction was not warranted and Mazzagatti got the call wrong.

Once the fight restarted Lesnar took Mir down once again, but this time Mir was prepared and had cleared his head from the barrage. Lesnar then left his leg behind and was defeated by a leg lock. Mazzagatti got the call wrong, but it did not cause for Lesnar to lose the fight. Lesnar lost the fight because he is still inexperienced.

That will not be the case for his next fight. At the moment his next fight is still yet to be announced as well as his next opponent. Who ever this next opponent is I feel extremely sorry for this person. Lesnar is only going to get bigger, stronger, and faster before his next fight. Most of all he has gained experience in the UFC and now has more to prove. He has proved that he is not the former WWE actor/fighter, but he is a bona fide MMA fighter. He will use this loss to fuel himself to be a better fighter; he has said that this is his passion.

The next opponent better come into to his fight with Lesnar prepared for a knock down, dirty, nasty fight. Lesnar is no joke; people need to see that he is only going to be better his next time around. His next opponent better know what he is getting into. Lesnar will make his next opponent an example of just how dangerous he can be. Lesnar is a beast and he will cause someone serious harm if they are not prepared for him. Lesnar is a two time NCAA wrestling champion, he knows how to come back from losses and how to use them to his advantage. Lesnar is seriously one of the most dangerous fighters in the UFC heavyweight division and he only has two fights under his belt. His skills are raw and unprocessed, but give him some quality mat time with a decent trainer and in a short period of time he WILL be destroying people. He is going to beat his next opponent into the ground and stomp his way up the heavyweight ladder.

Mark my words, one day he will be the UFC Heavyweight Champion.

The Crying Game

There is an online petition going on at the moment to get the NFL to review the last 100 seconds of the Superbowl.  Don’t believe me? Go to this site. and you will see how sad people can be at times.  Your team lost, get over it.  I guess the videotapes didn’t help much this time?  WHY?!?!?! WHY would anyone sign this petition?  The Giants played a superior game, and won.  Simple as that.  No conspiracy theories, no “what ifs,” no “Gisele was at the stadium and that caused Tom Brady to play bad.”  Gisele was not to blame.  

 

Who’s to blame for the end of the perfect season?  Maybe it was the Giants defense?  Maybe if the Giants hadn’t put Brady on his back all game the Patriots would have won. If only Bellichick had taken the field goal.  Cocky bastard believed he can get away with anything.  He’s been caught cheating and now he’s been embarrassed at the Superbowl.  No sweeter revenge can come to fruition.  

 

And now a word to the fans who actually signed this petition.  What are you complaining about?  Your team benefited from multiple calls on the field and you lost it.  Don’t blame the NFL for some wrongdoing that never happened.  Grab your muskets and find Bellichick.  He lost the game for you.  So cry cry all you want.  It’s not like you have an  All-Pro quarterback, who’s only 30 by the way, 3 Superbowl victories in the last 7 years, and most likely, another visit to the Superbowl next year?  So what do you have to cry about?  Oh wait, thats right.  Your team got beat by the New York Giants.  Don’t forget to grab some tissue on the way out.

Shaq has been traded…… for Shawn Marion and Marcus Banks. Which team got the better end of this deal? Miami has the worst record in the league at 9-38, while Phoenix is sitting pretty on top of the Pacific Conference. It boggles the mind as to why the Suns would make this trade. They have already have a rising star center in Amare Stoudamire. Why go out and cripple your team with a 36 year old center that hasn’t played an entire season in… how long has it been now?

As for the Heat, they got one of the most complete players in the league in Shawn Marion. But without Steve Nash feeding him the ball on fast breaks, how effective can he be? Dwyane Wade is one of the top players in the league, but he’s no Steve Nash. I guess it’s time for Wade to shine without Shaq to help. Will Wade ever get back to the finals without him? Maybe Wade should ask Kobe on how to do that…
