[Five Deadly Everythings]

Meanwhile, back at the Ashcan, my thoughts on UFC 116

Posted in mma by Jef on July 5, 2010

Hop over to the Ashcan to check my rundown of UFC 116, which was a FANTASTIC night of fights. I originally wrote it as a post for Five Deadly, and I say such wind-baggy things as:

Bonnar has never looked like a fighter, neither in physique, face or technique, but he fought like one, all heart and ugly smiles and a chin that can weather wrecking balls. Whatever doubts grew about his long-term prospects, that was the Bonnar who showed up this night. That Bonnar avenged his losses, ran all over the cage like a tweaked hamster, dropped Soszynski twice in the second round with knees and fists and elbows to the body, and then had his arm raised by ref Mario Yamasaki in the end. There he was, smiling and flexing, bloody and proud.

Good times.
