UFC 92 Recap

I just woke up from the coma that UFC 92 put me in to. 10 fights 5 split decisions, and 3 unanimous decisions, only two KOs. No submissions. So boring that it makes me want to never watch a UFC again. Dreams of UFC 33 boring.

Dan Cramer Matt def Arroyo Decision (Split)
My Pick: Matt by KO first round
The blood letting begins.

Jake O'Brien def Christian Wellisch Decision (Split)
My Pick: Christian by RNC second round.

John Howard def Chris Wilson Decision (Split)
My Pick: Wilson by RNC first round

Thiago Tavares def Manny Gamburyan Decision (Unanimous)
My Pick: Manny by decision

Jon Fitch def Akihiro Gono Decision
My Pick: Fitch by KO second round
Jon does well and dominates Gono. That should put Jon back on track, and may send Gono back to the Japanese shows...

Clay Guida def Nathan Diaz Decision (Split)
My Pick: Nate by third round KO
Clay did a great job of tying Nate up and nullifying Nate's boxing advantage. Very good job by Guida.

Karo Parisyan def Dong Hyun Kim Decision (Split)
My Pick: Kim by decision
Very nice Judo, but little other action.

Jon Jones def Stephan Bonnar Decision
My Pick: Stephan by Triangle Choke first round
Jon wins by UFC judges being in love with the takedown.

Lyoto Machida def Thiago Silva KO (Punches) 4:59 rnd 1
My Pick: Silva by KO by strikes on the ground second round
Machida seals the deal very late in the first round. The karate train keeps rolling.

Georges St. Pierre B.J. Penn TKO (Corner Stoppage) 5:00 rnd 4
My Pick: BJ by KO third round
GSP beat the holly hell out of BJ. That is all there is to say about that. The corner made the right choice. I would have done the same thing had I been in BJ's corner.

I do a horrible job picking the fights this time. 1-9. Ouch.
