RECAP UFC 146
So it turns out the guys at BRS know what they’re talking about as far as MMA is concerned.
If you saw our predictions article we released before the weekend you’d see we picked all the actual winners.
The entire Main Card and the undercard were fantastic, the heavyweights really put on a good show. Its really a shame Allistair Overeem couldn’t be a paret of this exclusively heavyweight event and the first of its kind. What i’m really happy about is the fact that Junior dos Santos and Frank Mir didn’t pretend to have some kinda beef to sell the fight, that would’ve turned the entire main event into a circus. Instead both guys just git in the Octagon and fought, it was close, Junior did what everything knoew he would do.
Cain Velasquez was most impressive in his bout with “Bigfoot“, we here at BRS did not expect the total and complete domination that it was. I’m sure everyone thought Bigfoot would put up a better fight, him being the guy who pounded Fedor out, but alas it was not meant to be because Velasquez is back! This performance put Cain right up there for the rematch with Junior, and that ladies and gentlemen is HUGE.
Stefan Struve and Roy Nelson both putting on great performances, really putting their opponents away with ease and both looking like its time to get a more contender style match up. Struve via armbar in the 1st and Nelson via 1st round one punch KO.
