damn galvao can take a hit
thanks for the vid, I've always wanted to see this fight
it's 2 days old.
Was Metcalf the same guy that beat Raymond Daniels at Strikeforce a few months ago?
His striking doesnt look great but it did improve throughout the match. It looked like it made Metcalf back off a little on his feet towards the end. At first Galvao looked scared to strike and wanted to Jiu Jitsu him to death instead.
true. i think i was just impressed that he recovered from those. it'll be interesting to see where his MMA career goes
butt scooting until ref keeps telling him to stand up
Man...this is his FIRST FIGHT. I look at mine and realize how shitty I looked. I don't know if you've fought or not, but if you have, do you remember how jumpy and weird your first one was...it sucks! You feel every hit and react to them, just like that first time you got choked in BJJ scared the shit out of you. It's just simply something you're not used to, it's not natural to get hit hard and stay calm. I wouldn't write him off just yet.
That being said...mma butt scoot!
this term is fuckin awesome
"I will ziuzitsu you to death...fall into my guward!"
It's his first MMA fight jesus lol. It's not like he was going to come out there and outstrike/avoid a guy when he's not really a striker. It's how he will eventually incorperate it all into one package that will be interesting to see. I don't think it'll be like that at all, he was even trying to set up combos himself. Metcalf did not look that impressive at all, infact if I didn't know he had fought before I'd assume this was his first fight too LOL. Those leg kicks he was doing were fucking pathetic. Although I guess most of his wins are way of submission and not his telegraphed combos.
Watch when Metcalf throws any punches it's funny. If he just throws a straight right he still telegraphs it like a 1-2 combo as his left shoulder moves forward first. At least that's what I noticed in a grainy video. I don't even have that good of a standup, but I'd be dodging/countering that shit all day.
I still love you
Does anyone just develop a chin? You either got it or don't what he can do is learn how to avoid taking shots, or if he does take a shot how to take one properly (chin tucked, gloves up, etc..). I don't see how he won't eventually develop it. It does matter if it's his first fight, what the fuck dude, I bet you'd look like a fish out of water out there too so fuck you troll.
Just because you did well doesn't mean everyone else is going to just transition over perfectly. I've never competed yet, but I hope to in October. I am expecting to get a whopping, but I'm still going to have fun doing it. I don't feel I have to win every fight, I'd like to but, I know I'm not going to turn pro. I'm going to be nervous and fuck I hope I can do half as well as Galvao did, he preformed well considering. Everyone gave me shit for criticizing Brock because it was his second fight .
He's bringing the MMA butt scoot back into fashion!
hey drag_on, were you a jock in highschool?
hmm.. that explains a lot.
I want me some half-gorilla babies.
I suck dick for brown belt!
He wasn't making fun of you, he was just explaining how he got his brown belt.
Oh you've upgraded to wearing the birthday suit now?
galvao's bootyscoot > franklin's dropping to one knee
drag_on = mf101 of the cage
that first knock down was brutal.
