Hell of a fight. Surprised I didn't see any real talk about it.
Everybody was busy talking about Gurgle not using his JJ. I thought it was a good fight though. He likes to slug it out for the fans. That's fine with me.
Gurgel is an average kickboxer, but he can put on an entertaining fight by using his face to block punches.
I would really like to see him actually fight like an MMA fighter at some point though, and use his kickboxing to transition to the ground and up again. He has the cardio to do it, and the skills, he just seems to not listen. Dellagrotte seemed frustrated that he wasn't following the gameplan.
All the props to Aaron Riley though for kickin ass.
lol, the problem is a lot of people only know jorge gurgel's name from TUF and assume if he wins its because hes awesome, if he loses its because he totally sucks. Aaron riley is a good fighter, and I'm pretty sure theres more to mma than "just using your bjj".
sityodtong forgot to teach gurgel how to defend head kicks
a kickboxing match between two guys with zero power
Terrible fight with horrendous standup. Gurgel disappoints every fucking time. I am glad that he thinks that losing with his kickboxing is entertaining for the fans because for the life of me, I dont know how this guy still gets airtime in the UFC.
it was REALLY sloppy. I didnt find it SUPER entertaining, but that might be cause the way gurgel fights reminds me of a women fighting. Did anybody else not see this?
the bonus also helps
i thoguht this fight was fucking awful and looked amateur.
Call me crazy, I thought Hazelett and McCrory should have gotten FOTN. That shit was an MMA clinic.
WAYYY better, more techincal, better exchanges, and the finish !!
Oh and btw, i JUST saw hazeletts fucking whizzer to armbar yesterday on burkman
MY GOD THIS HAZELETT
that hazelett, he's so hot right now. i'm a huge fan of him, he puts on some damnnnn entertaining fights.
i was riding his nuts after he fought koscheck too !! Was impressed he had kos in real danger for a moment in that fight.
if it wasn't gurgel involved in the fight it would be talked about a lot more
yea, i've been swinging from his sac for a while. he's got so much time to develop more too. gonna be exciting watching him grow even more as a fighter
isnt he only 22 as well ?!!
