Proved a lot of people wrong with cardio and grappling today too. Fair effort to do it in Brazil as well.
Smith is a good analyst and student of the sport, but also an absolute toss.Anthony Smith: "The work I did with Hill went a long way to him winning that fight. Dana has said I'm next in line for the title"
I really enjoy him. Just wish he'd be a bit more honest when losing and not make excuses. That said, you probably have to be a lot delusional to fight at that level.Smith is a good analyst and student of the sport, but also an absolute toss.
I hate to lump a whole people together but man, Brazilian sport fans...
Absolutely agree with this.I really enjoy him. Just wish he'd be a bit more honest when losing and not make excuses. That said, you probably have to be a lot delusional to fight at that level.
Absolutely agree with this.
Not sure why Smith would be anywhere near a title shot though. Coming off a loss and 4-3 since the JBJ loss. Needs at least one big win, even with all the chaos throughout the division.
I agree, that's why I was hoping Crute would get the rematch in his return. He had Smith covered on the feet and on the ground, well other than the calf kick I guess, he's a name and his ability doesn't match the name these days, perfect opponent really.
Crute was getting lit the * up v Smith. Had no head movement at all that night and his face was turning into a punching bag. In fact Crute looked a lot better when his leg went out

Reflecting on this card, it wasn't 'bad', there weren't many if any 'boring' fights.
And yet I kinda feel disappointed by it. Like an empty sort of feeling.
Could be because the main event saw an old legend bow out, and a somewhat-fortunate contender given the title.
In front of a dodgy crowd. Obviously not all of the attendees behaved like clowns but a lot of them did.
I read somebody's comment elsewhere who said something like 'We brazilians dont love sport, we just love winning'.
Fits them to a tee tbh.
Nothing against Hill, good on him. But in other times he would have Jones, Jiri, Jan, and Magomed ahead of him.
The co-main gets ended by a doctor stoppage.
The one female fight on the card was a brutal beating. I wonder how much she got paid for that. Probably peanuts.
Gilbert made short work of his opponent. Almost a waste of a training camp for both of them.
The main highlight for me was that short heavyweight putting his name on the map with a huge KO win on debut.
Also the brothers who both won in impressive fashion. They appear to have big things ahead of them.
Like I said, not a 'boring' card, but something about it felt off.
I love Crute too but Smith was all over him early until his leg ****ed up and he started taking Smith downMaybe I should rewatch it then (I am a Crute fanboy ha ha), I thought Crute had him covered on the feet until the leg kick. And yes I do recall him getting the takedown pretty easily and controlling him for the rest of the round.
Racist post: worst thing about events in Brazil is the damn translation....it ends up up 3 times longer than it should be, very annoying
