My Thoughts On the UFC on Fox 17 Main Card
Rafael dos Anjos def. Donald Cerrone via TKO (kick and punches) – Round 1, 1:06
This fight was over so quick. I was looking down to pick out the next slice of pizza to stuff in my mouth and missed the entire fight. I am glad this didn’t go to a decision but I was hoping for a round two at least.
Alistair Overeem def. Junior Dos Santos via TKO (punches) – Round 2, 4:43
This was a terrible fight to watch. When two people have the type of power Dos Santos and Overeem have they end up respecting each other too much. One wrong move and your lights are out. Add the trash talking into the mix and neither one wanted to make a mistake and be on the losing end. I know this ended in a TKO but that doesn’t negate the first 5 minutes of nothing. Booo!!!
Nate Diaz def. Michael Johnson via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28)
Great fight!!! Both guys got to show off their skills and somehow the UFC got me excited to see a Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz fight. It would do huge money and the lead up would be fantastic.
Karolina Kowalkiewicz def. Randa Markos via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)
This was a good fight. I always go in hoping for a top to fly off but I didn’t get to see any of that this time. There is always tomorrow.
