UFC 101 Results That Pissed Me Off

By Paul Sunday, August 09, 2009
There were a couple of fights last night that made me want to shut it down and just get drunk. Not because I lost a little money, but because of unbridled boredom.
#1 Josh Neer vs Kirt Pelligrino – from fight of the night potential to nap of the night. I was as pissed as Neer at the end of this one. I hate fights being won through top control win little to no aggression from good position. Speaking of no aggression from the top...
#2 Almeida vs Grove – one of the best BJJ guys in the UFC??? BULLSHIT. Ricardo’s wrestling and strikes to get the fight down looked great. Then the fight hits the ground and nothing. For three rounds! I guess I just expected too much.
Fortunately, examples of fantastic top attacks came from George Sotiropoulous and BJ Penn. That was exactly what I pay to see.

I have followed the UFC for over 10 years, written as a handicapper, and spent my spare time as an online poker grinder. Unfortunately, I ran out of legal wagering options...Thank god for Daily Fantasy Sports and the much needed addition of MMA drafts. I offer my insight into MMA fight handicapping and fight analysis for the purpose of making some dough at DFS!
