Observations from My Couch: UFC 120 "Ultimate UK MMA Sucks"

  • It’s clear to me that Cheick Kongo wanted to remove Travis Browne’s shorts so badly that he did not care about being docked a point.  Now the question remains as to why – did Kongo find them offensive?  Did Kongo want to wear Browne’s shorts himself?
  • Alexander Gustafsson.  Now that’s a cool name.
  • Paul Sass.  Now that’s a regrettable name.
  • Mike Pyle beat John Hathaway?  Really?  Mike Pyle is who you get when your star welterweight’s opponent dropped out at the last minute and you need a warm body fast.
  • Scoring a knockout is cool and all, but nothing says “badass” more than beating someone at the one thing they’re good at.  Carlos Condit is officially a stud.
  • Michael Bisping has become the nicest fighter in the cage today.  Seriously, that guy gives more hugs, high-fives and various displays of respect more than anyone.  At one point I thought he was going to pause and give Yoshihiro Akiyama pointers.
