Huerta looking good early. Fight is on the ground. Fighters switch positions on the ground. Fight still on the mat. BJJ techniques so far by both. Very technical on both parties. Huerta throwing shots from half raining down shots. Crane mouse under left eye.

I give rd to Huerta.
HaydelHammer
2nd rd. On Mat again early. Huerta on top. Huerta landing on top. Crane going for submissions..etc it seems while at the same time willing to get his head caved in. LOL. Crane on top now. Crane looks like he only wants to try to submit this guy or sneak some sh*t in. Huerta wants to swing dogs on the ground..etc. They are tied up in some spider sh*t right now...lol. Very technical stuff. Huerta still applying the pressure. Huerta landing while Crane giving up back. Crane is tired.

2 rds to none Huerta. Huerta in shape. Crane looks like he was drinking last night.
HaydelHammer
3rd rd. Crane still tired. Huerta very good stamina. Stop this sh*t this dude is tired and laying on his back. Crowd Booing. Crane still trying for submissions. Huerta looking at big screen and hitting Crane at the same time. LOL. This is some funny sh*t. LOL. Dude is looking at the damn monitor and landing elbows with his back turned to crane. LOL.

Fight is stopped. Huerta wins. LOL.
HaydelHammer
GSP vs Koscheck up next. I'm interested in this one. I think GSP may have just a little more arsenol than Josh, but let's see.
HaydelHammer
Koscheck on the way to ring. I think the guy is the most improved out of all of those TUF fighters figuring he was 100% wrestler when he started and didn't know jack else.

HaydelHammer

exactly. I can't see anybody on earth not pulling for randy. He said he was rocked a couple of times...etc but he wanted to tire the big man out. He went all out to me. Did what he had to do. Mad props to randy. Hope I can be half as in shape as him at 40+.

Randy is an enigma. He is like the Hopkins of MMA. I am not really satisfied with the stoppage although Randy was dominate. But Randy was not landing much of anything clean to warrant a stoppage. But unless Gonzaga came with something outta his ass, he would have lost the battle of attrition anyhow. I really like both these guys. Gonzaga is very gracious in defeat and is a very respectable guy. I still believe that Gonzaga will be a champ someday. Dude is only 26 and has fought the top in his young career.

You da man Haydel. Thanks for keepin the RBR.

GSP is the man. I really like this guy. Huerta was very impressive as well. I really wanted to see the Guida fight. I like that guy as well. Who won that anyhow?

GSP was all veteran on Kos tonight. Huerta looked like he was ready to go 5 rds non stop. I like Gonzaga also. He will be champ later on I feel. randy does remind be of Bernard also. They were talking on espn before. both old school. I fig. they'd stop it though. He was just covering up.

Good fights tonight. Thanks for the props.
HaydelHammer
Randy backstage talking to Mike Irvin. The 40+ guys are all loving this I bet.

I'd have to kick randy's a$$ and rep for the younger cats if he rolled up on the H.H. LOL!
thehype
Thanks for the round by rounds HH.

GSP owned Kos. Huerta was funny as hell using the monitor to throw those elbows behind him. Randy is pure class.
BigG
GSP was the fighter of the night...
Bill The Butcher
I was rooting for Randy Couture all the way. I also knew he would pull off the win. I just thought Gonzaga hasn't been tested yet. I knew if Couture got off a couple solid takedowns and got Gonzaga on his back, it would have thrown Gonzaga off his game. That busted up nose didn't help either. He also looked really gassed in that fight. Probably had trouble breathing or something. I like Gonzaga. Seems like a cool dude and excellent fighter. He rocked Couture on a couple occasions. One was like a three strike combo and the other was a high kick.

I thought it was a fair stoppage. Maybe it could have went on a little longer, but Gonzaga wasn't fighting back. He was just trying to cover up with his hands the whole time.

The Huerta fight was awesome. I was laughing my ass off when he was using the monitor to see where his opponents head was. Huerta is the man. Has all around good skills. Good stamina. And a very smart fighter. I've never seen a fight, where a fighter used the monitor.
