When this card was fully fleshed out, this was one of the UFC cards that made me tingly all over. It didn’t disappoint. If you missed it last night, shame on you. But if you did miss UFC on FOX 12 (again, shame on you), I’m here to go over the night with you.
Robbie Lawler vs. Matt Brown
I would’ve bet all the money in my bank account and in my girlfriend’s bank account that there was no way this fight would go all 5 rounds. Well, if I actually did that I’d be broke and single. It wasn’t exactly the brawl in a Best Buy parking lot on Black Friday that I was hoping for, but it was still an entertaining scrap. Even if Matt Brown channeled his inner Dwyane Wade on that kick that didn’t hit his cup…
Anthony Johnson Throws Lil Nog’s Retirement Party.
This fight was one grown man (Johnson) CRUSHING another grown man (Nog). That’s all you need to know about this one, it was 44 seconds of beautiful destruction. Maybe I’m crazy, but I’d throw Rumble in there against Gustafsson. Any fight at 205 is a step back, IMO.
Dennis Bermudez Needs More Promotion
Only Jon Jones & Chris Weidman have a longer UFC winning streak than Bermudez. Bermudez needs some more shine. Bermudez put an awesome ass-whooping on Clay Guida last night.
Bobby Green might be my new favorite fighter.
Can we talk about Bobby Green really quick? First off, the man is 4-0 in the UFC, another guy that needs some more marketing love. Also, this man LOVES to talk to his opponent in the octagon. It’s almost like he was looking out for the judges by telling them which strikes landed and which didn’t. Very considerate fighter.
Anyway, I scored the fight a draw but would have been fine with a decision either way.
Jorge Masvidal vs. Daron Cruickshank
This was a fun scrap. Masvidal won. Check it out if you missed it.
Smell ya later, Kyle Kingsbury.
This ended up being the UFC equivilant of one of those early 90s era WWE type jobber matches where the dude is already in the ring wearing generic tights and he’s just gonna get crushed by one of the dudes in Demolition or something. Good job by Pat Cummins to get the W, but it still doesn’t answer any questions about his potential, doesn’t answer if he can make a mean latte either. As for Kyle Kingsbury, he once shot his baby batter onto some sushi during The Ultimate Fighter so, bleh. Bon voyage, enjoy having relations with Natasha Wicks.
