The head thing is just what he does. He doesn't keep his hands up like most fighters and in fact often sticks his head in and dares the other fighter to try to hit his head and often that's when he'll land a counter punch that'll take down his opponent.

For Anderson, there is a fine line between trying to psyche out an opponent while in the ring, baiting an impatient fighter and then clobbering with a counterpunch, and outright clowning around and not taking things seriously enough.  We have seen him do all three.  I'm not really sure what this one was, but it was only a matter of time before someone caught him and made him pay for it.  For what it's worth, I really like the Anderson Silva who uses this as a counter-punching technique, because it is absolutely devasting.  I fucking hate the Anderson who clowns around.

I could see him going into a rematch and punching Weidman's face off.  I could also see him going in and being tentative and aloof, because now there must a be a little part of him that really doesn't want to get KTFO again.

I like GSP but I don't think there was any way he won that fight. I know when you get guys like him who have had the title for a long time that scoring tends to go a little bit in their favor since nobody wants to see a winning streak like that end with a close decision, but Hendricks beat the shit out GSP. I don't know if it's a problem with the judges or just with the scoring system in general. Credit to GSP though for making it through those first couple rounds.

The GSP fight was as bad as Jones' last bullshit decision win.

Also tonight's fight was brutal, and probably the end of Anderson's career. I didn't like the guy at all, but he didn't deserve to go out like that.

 awesome, for real

It kind of leaves a bad taste in my mouth that the GOAT goes out like that, but you have to admit...the guy has built up some pretty bad karma over the years.  Maybe the universe is paying him back.  The worst part of it all is that Weidman now has two asterisks next to his claim to the belt.  Poor guy will never be able to prove that he could really, REALLY beat Anderson, despite having done so twice as far as the record book is concerned.  Despite clearly winning round one, part of me still thinks that Anderson was going to put leather to his brain at any second.  We'll never know.  I don't predict he will have a long reign, but we will see.

Also - while I still have trouble watching women punch each other in the face, I cannot deny that the Rousey/Tate fight was really entertaining.  That girl has some stupid good judo.  The ground stuff is so different with the women, because they are so ridiculously flexible.  They can attempt shit the men can't even consider.

I was originally not that interested in women fighters but I have to say in the MMA setting they are hella entertaining. Its like the feather weight guys really fast really active and flexible as hell. Not to many striking knock outs but damn they all fire off submission after submission attempt pretty crazy ground game and I have not seen one where the fighters gassed really badly which is nice after watching so many mens matches at the higher weight classes be one round of action and two rounds of exhausted panting.

Odd that it happened so soon after the Kevin Ware injury. That's not 3 times I've seen that particular break in sports. Ware, Silva, and Tyrone Prothro.

Tonight's card was a big batch of disappointment. First Carlos gets hurt in a fight he was winning, causing Woodley to call out for a title shot he absolutely doesn't deserve. Then Hendricks wins with a bullshit decision that I guess is supposed to make up for getting robbed against GSP last go-round. Meh.

I keep hearing that it was a bullshit decision, but I can't see how. I had Johnny winning rounds 1,2 and 5 with Robbie winning 3 and 4. Robbie may have won rounds 3 and 4 by a greater margin than Johnny won any of his three rounds, but neither of them deserved to be 10-8 rounds. Ah well, to each their own I guess, I really enjoyed the fight, though the rest of the card wasn't great.

I had Hendricks winning 1 and 5, Robbie 2, 3 and 4 as did the other 3 guys I was watching it with. At this point I'm not even surprised at a bad judges call, since that's all we've had lately in the title fights (GSP's last, Jones vs Gustafsson, etc.).

Looks like former WWE wrestler/champion CM Punk is coming to the UFC.  I don't know if this is going to turn out at well as it did for Brock Lesnar considering at least Lesnar was a former NCAA wrestling champion while Punk has no such background and has only been dabbling in MMA skills over the years.  He has trained quite a bit with the Gracie's over the years and is supposedly proficient in BJJ so maybe he might not embarrass himself.

His walk to the ring looked like a scene straight out of Snatch's outtakes. I wonder if he's aware of that and is riding it a bit. Anyway, great moves. I'll still put my money on Aldo though. What worries me is that the UFC is pushing him so much that if it'll ever get to a close decision Aldo is doomed by default.

That Rousey/Zingano fight reminded me of some nature film where a speedy bug tries to take on a mantis and just gets instra-grabbed and its head bit off.

LOL. Rousey one punch KO 34 seconds in.

EDIT: Ok, seen it now. Not just one punch, but just beat the hell out of her in 34 sec.

Has anyone?  Rousey is so far above her "competitors" that at this point I'm starting to think she's doing more harm to women's MMA than she is helping it.  She makes everyone else look like complete jokes and non-factors.

The only one that's given her some work is Miesha Tate in the second fight.  It is funny that there are still Rousey haters that say she's over rated.  She's not gonna fight Cyborg til he makes the 135 weight, so it'll prolly never happen.

I like how she didn't try to grapple with Correia when Correia went to the ground and preferred to smash her face in instead when she got up. Correia shouldn't have taunted Rousey about her dad's suicide.

Yeah, when the ref pulls her off you can see that shit eating grin on Rousey's face.  Either way, Correia deserved it and she's lucky Rousey didn't draw it out to punish her.

Agreed. She isn't interesting to watch anymore because she outclasses her opponents by such a large margin; the division is sort of a dud since there's no one actually in title contention.

Someone needs to get to her and explain that she's damaging her long-term potential with these short fights. It's the gladiator idea. You're not the best because you can kill quickly, you're the best because you win the crowd. You make the best spectacle. A 30 second fight isn't entertainment other than putting it on vines and blurbs for social media. If you're paying for that, you're pissed it didn't last longer and wondering why anyone should bother getting in the ring.

There has to be a reward for watching a fight. Watching the cat stalk the mouse before killing is much more entertaining than simple bite and blood in 5 seconds.
