Observations from My Couch: UFC on Versus 3 "Ultimate Sanchez Has Got Heart, No Disputing That"

  • When you get a rematch with someone, and they defeat you with the same choke at the same exact time as the first bout, it may be a good idea to work on defenses for that move.  Just a thought, Damacio Page.  Just a thought.
  • It’s good to know that no matter how long the layoff, Brian Bowles will come back with his hairstyle completely unchanged.
  • Igor Pokrajac called out Tito Ortiz – is that a thing, now?
  • With his tentativeness and his sloppy-looking striking, Chris Weidman looked like a guy with only four MMA bouts to his name.  That is to say, a guy with all the talent and promise in the world who still managed to get the job done.
  • Man, it’s got to suck to be Thiago Tavares, all “kicking ass” and “technical striking”, and then BAM! Shane Roller freakin’ kills you.
  • For 53 seconds, CB Dollaway looked great.  Too bad about that 54th second.
  • Martin Kampmann was far and away the better fighter, but Diego Sanchez had too much heart.  And fists.  And blood.  And determination.  And drive.  And emotion.  And guts.  And simply would not stop walking forward.
