    Default Ufc 69

    Big ones are GSP v. Serra, and then Koscheck v. Diego. First one should be an easy one for GSP, second one should be really good. Goes off tommorrow.

    I'm curious as to what you guys think of UFC (and others) versus boxing. I've been a boxing fan for about 25 years now, and I think boxing rivals wrestling for the title of the purest sport. The big problem with boxing now is that there are way too many controversia (BS)l decisions, and not enough big name fights. Boxing has a huge credibility issue, but a great boxing match is hard to beat.

    I've tried to get into UFC and the other stuff, but it hasn't happened for me yet. It seems to me that they stop the fights too soon. Agree or disagree?

    I didn't see that specific article but I heard about what Floyd said, and in my opinion he has his head up his ass.

    Obviously boxers are going to be better when it comes to straight stand up, but put Floyd in the cage with a guy like a motivated BJ Penn and it would just be brutal, get get those guys on the ground and they're done.

    In terms of what I like more, there was a time where it was boxing, but right now I'd watch MMA over Boxing anytime. Way to much bs in boxing nowadays.

    The Gatti v. Ward fights while maybe not as technically pleasing as some, were a flashback to the essence of what the sport of boxing should be about, too damn bad that fights like that, and even more specifically fighters like that are few and far between.

    I'd love to see Koschek pound Diego.

    I'll be watching at home and will post results.

    I certainly hope Kos wins but I have my doubts.

    Koscheck wins unanimous decision.

    Boring fight...Diego wouldn't engage Kos.

    Kos jabbed and threw a few good rights for 3 rounds.

    One Kos takedown late in round one.

    Great fight for Josh, Deigo just looked like he was avoiding the confrontation with him the entire time.
    Champions are made while no one is watching.
