Observations from My Couch: UFC 111 "Please, Someone Defeat GSP Already"

    • Jared Hamman vs. Rodney Wallace was sloppy as hell, but definitely fun.
    • Only Ricardo Almeida could turn a rear naked choke into a side naked choke and win with it.  That’s a jiu-jitsu stud right there, folks.
    • Nate Diaz edged just a little bit closer to being the badass his brother Nick is, while Rory Markham edged just a little bit closer to fighting in Bellator.
    • Damn.  Rousimar Palhares wanted to take that leg home with him.
    • When a jiu-jitsu black belt has your back, has his legs figure-foured around your waist and one of your arms trapped, you’re pretty much his bitch.  Unless your name is Jim Miller.  Then that jiu-jitsu black belt is your bitch.  He just doesn’t realize it yet.
    • Jon Fitch: the second-best welterweight in the world that no one wants to watch.
    • Kurt Pellegrino gave one heck of an awe-inspiring performance in his bout against Fabricio Camoes.  Too bad about that victory dance.
    • Youngsters aspire to be comic book heroes.  Comic book villains aspire to be Shane Carwin.  Seriously, that dude was going to kill Frank Mir.
    • You know what sucks?  The fact that the measure of a welterweight’s ability and standing is based on how well they can take a beating from Georges St. Pierre.  Please, someone defeat GSP already.
