UFC 172: Jones vs. Teixeira (4/26/2014) - Baltimore, MD (Baltimore Arena)

Recommended Posts

Damn at all these guillotine chokes. Three fights in a row all ending with the hold.

I could continue posting gifs of all the awesome finishes from tonight, but I don't think it would be appropriate.

 

With that said, I highly doubt the next fights keeps the guillotine trend going.

Luke Rockhold doesn't keep up the guillotine trend going because he just one upped that trend.

 

Easily card of the year even if the last 2 fights stink which I highly doubt they will.

Danny Castillo looked like Little Mac throwing the Star Punch when he KO'ed Brenneman.

He should have known better. AJ is for real.

If anything that just proved Rumble is legit at 205.

 

What an amazing performance by Jones.

 

He's really getting up there as the GOAT fighter.

 

Great card top to bottom.

 

Only stinker on the card was the women's fight and even that had it's bright moments such as Jessamyn's sick throws and Bethe continuously landing leg kicks and over hand rights.

GREAT night of fights. the women's fight was the downer (how often can you say that?) because Duke didn't really open up.

picks be damned, this is what i am looking for out of UFC cards.

I can say this a lot, because women fights are quite a lot of times. It did redeem itself with the 4 Horsewomen taunt.

Just got home from the show. Been to about ten events total over the years and this might be my second favorite behind 129 in Canada. Was so tired of Phil Davis running his mouth so him being outclassed got over huge with me.

It's easy to go Roma so I'm saying Duke is the Sid of the 1990-91 incarnation. She's just tall and not very good in the ring.

Man, Phil Davis just looked lost out there and I loved it.  That is what he gets for all that terrible pre-fight talk.

Oh lawd, the "Jones is a dirty fighter" crying on the UG is hilarious.

Dana's strategy of getting Phil to promote himself worked, but not for Phil. He ran into his physical match in every shape and form. I didn't like his body language after round 1. Anytime someone hits you and you basically do a complete 360 turn, that's not a good sign. Plus, that's asking for your opponent to hit you in the back of the head in exchanges. Davis' game relies so much on strength that he will still be in the top 5-7 for awhile but never come close to matching what his outlook was four years ago. Everyone isn't going to get straight torched on the ground like Prado and Boetsch. If your strategy is based greatly on the amount of resistance you face, you're going to be DEEP shit. You also saw that with Fili. So much of high level MMA is based on adjustments.

Man, Beal should've brought Williams a pillow and a blanket before rocking him to sleep like that.

The crowd was behind Jones ALL night. Biggest pop of the evening by far. I think this 'people hate Jon Jones' stuff is only for the 'smark' MMA states like NV,NJ, and CO. People were definitely there to see him. I was surprised at Rumble's reaction. The PPV started off right with 3 submissions which made me think that if the old Rumble showed up tonight, it was going to be 4 in a row courtesy of Mr. Wonderful. God Damn Baltimore loved them some Rumble tonight! Phil Davis was actually boo'd during his ring introduction. The only people cheering were Glover were the Brazilians in the crowd and some random dude next to me who was BEGGING for Glover to KO Jones.

 

This was my second UFC event and it delivered.

You don't think it may have had something to do with Jon Jones' brother playing for the Ravens and Jones doing the Ray Lewis dance?  Maybe just a bit?

Great card top to bottom, one of the best UFC cards I've seen.

 

Three straight guillotine chokes in a row on this card.  I don't think that's ever happened on a UFC event before.

Yeah that was some first class pandering there by Jones.  I understand his brother plays for the Ravens but even that isn't worth treating Glover like trash and getting the huge reaction.  Jones has never been cheered that much in a long time.  They even brought out the USA chants which is really fucking stupid given that most of those people loved Gomi about 2 or 3 hours before.  :rolleyes:

 

So would Chris Beal be the first Facebook/Fight Pass/dark match person to ever get a performance bonus.  Definitely deserved it

 

I would bitch about Jones finger poking Glover in the eye at least 3 or 4 times in the fight but Glover's constant issue with dropping his mouthguard makes it a push.  In the 4th it looked like it saved him

 

In watching Jones entrance, it sure did look like Chuck Liddell and the Jones Brothers were having a hell of an argument.

Great show. Best this year.

 

UFC Bonuses:

Performances: Joseph Benavidez and Chris Beal.

 

Unlucky for Danny Castillo, Jim Miller, Luke Rockhold and Anthony Johnson.

I don't like the idea of Beal getting POTN. Aside from the flying knee KO, all he did was imitate Leonard Garcia.

 

I guess a brutal KO overshadows not having a good performance overall.

 

I think Holloway, Rockhold, Rumble or even Jones deserved POTN.

 

Holloway looked great in his fight against Fili.

 

Rockhold and Rumble pretty much shutdown their opponents.

 

And Jones just put a nasty beating on Glover.

 

All of which were against better competition and better performances than Beal's.

His brother signed with the Colts and no longer plays for the Ravens. They still love Arthur Jones and were sad to see him go. The Ray Lewis dance definitely helped.
