I'd rather watch someone tiptoe doughnuts around the canvas while flicking a jab at someone who can't cut him off for 12x3" rounds than watch two guys flop around in each other's guards dropping hammer fists and trying to buck-and-roll for 3x5". That's just me.

Love it by the pound. More of a fan of submmision wrestling though as opposed to pure BJJ guys rolling. That said BJJ is awesome to watch too.

GSP vs Nicky Diaz or...let me think............ Ezequiel Maderna vs Jesse Brinkley ????

Honestly, if they ran concurrently I'd choose Maderna vs. Brinkley live and then hope to maybe avoid spoilers for Rush vs. Diaz until catching a replay of it somewhere. If the result got spoiled or I just never got around to seeing it (even if it turned out to be the consensus MMA FOTY) I wouldn't lose any sleep over it.

I might make a minimal effort tomorrow night to peek at Overeem vs. Lesnar, but only if it doesn't interfere with the RBR I'll be doing for Taylor vs. Nicklow and Dirrell vs. Cunningham...even as unimportant as that doubleheader is. As you can probably tell, boxing takes massive priority for me over mixed martial arts.

Shock, the super 6 is over and he has a new fight lined up.

Dirrell is a ****ing cunt who doesn't appreciate the fans, doesn't come to fight and ain't winning an oscar any time soon for his acting.

Love it.

Maia vs MacDonald
George Sotiropoulos vs anyone
BJ Penn

I went back a while ago and rewatched some of Fitch and GSPs fights back when they actually tried to finish people. They're both brilliant technicians on the ground, it's a shame the way they fight now.

Not a word has been said about Fitch fighting tomorrow. Poor guy is getting overshadowed by lightweights who can't be argued as the number 1 contender.

Fitch is a guy I would absolutely love to train with. He's a phenomenal grappler, and it can't be argued that his game isn't effective. I just can't stand watching him.
