Oh. Just before this fight starts. Bader
I swear I said that before the fight started on my stream.
Expected the Tito Bader.. got the Pre-Jones Bader instead. lame.
Yup.. this card is fucking me up. At this point I'll need a perfect pick to break even again.
rampage fight has been exciting
4 for 4 I believe...and if you count the bonus I posted during them doing the fighter announcements, 5 for 5
Damn near got skunked on this one. Not taking a point after calling an illegal knee is odd though. Still wouldn't have won him the fight by the cards though.
Glad he didn't deduct a point....not tryna see a majority draw or some shit.
yeah, that's always bad to see in a championship fight. I still don't know why Dodson didn't try to engage in a slug match when he'd turn the corner on him and have Johnson against the cage. Ahh well. He'll get another Championship fight once Johnson point fights his way to more defenses.
There are only like 5 guys in the division that matter so yeah....we're gonna see alotta rematches
Dodson will fight for the title again.
That man has TALENT, he is just young and needs to be FULL of experience.
Either way the kid knows so much.
congrats if u hit a perfect prediction Demi, first for youmif I am not mistaken.
Was that a complisult? Part compliment part insult.
it would of had two judges scoring the fight a draw tho which would of made the fight a draw I'm pretty sure?
I found it a bit odd no point was taken away, especially since Dodson had just eaten an illegal low-blow a round prior.
WITH that being said though both illegal blows were very unintentional in my eyes.
The blow to the balls seemed to barely hit, showing it was not the intention of DJ to hit them at all,
and the shot, and like Rogan has been saying for awhile,
that 1 hand down and u can't be kicked/knee'd to the head rule is nonsense,
fighters have turned it into a game from a rule,
and now play with it and abuse it profusely.
Dodson deserved what he got and DJ showed,
if you watched the fight, illegal blows were not his intention....
Dodson is just so fast he puts himself in those situations.
I don't know about "got what he deserved" but yeah he made some poor decisions. I think the real deciding factor was the gas tank and I saw it early in the fight.. Dodson is actually faster than Johnson BUT he isn't used to keeping up that pace for 5 rounds. By midway through Rnd 3, he was feeling it and trying to ration his energy. That's the only reason he doesn't try to get out of that headlock on the cage where all the damage was done.
I don't think the knee was intentional but it's one of those things that's pretty dangerous. Maybe the rule should be changed to keep people from gaming it.. I saw a suggestion somewhere that said the 3 points touching the mat should be the knees and one hand rather than the feet and 1 hand and it would make sense. The low blow however.. I'm less confident wasn't intentional. Sure he didn't hit him clean but if you notice, Johnson wasn't looking for knees to the inner thighs at all before then or at all after that. Seems less like a slightly miss aimed strike and more like an attempt to sway the momentum. It's apart of the fight game either way though so people deal with it.
Dodson, when asked about the knee, said it didn't cause his change in performance. His exact words were, "I can't be a bitch about it."
naw b legit congrats.
I've been saying I want us all to hit perfect predictions
what the hell rampage
what the fuck cerrone
you fuckin assholes!
he looked a bit like 1 when it happened with the facial expressions,
but then again that is just him..
Either way I have to agree with the gas tank point,
it was clear to me when DJ started being able to take JD down again,
though never for too long, or cage-fuck him,
that Dodson just needs more experience and training before he is ready...
AND HE almost was ready. This kid has talent and is only getting better.
Did Rampage beat or lose to Matt Hamill?
neither, they made love
