Why wasnt this 5 rounds?

PitfighterZ Says, in 4-14-2012 at 19:55:00 from    

Wow! Gustafsson has some really good speed and precision to his shot. Kid is no joke.
Time to give him a big dog.
Thiago’s ring rust may have got him in trouble in the beginning of the fight. I think he will come back stronger for the next one.

I hate when pussies run.

Starpower559 Says, in 4-14-2012 at 20:29:00 from    

Alexander did great! wanna see him fight like a Machida or a Shogun tho

scottc Says, in 4-14-2012 at 21:20:12 from    

Gus looked very good tonight! He was quicker, his footwork was excellent, he connected with more punches, he had better head movement, his timing was great, he was frustrating Silva every round. Terrific win for the Swede!!

mr. lower case Says, in 4-14-2012 at 21:34:05 from    

@jabnu. I bet you think Nick Diaz beat condit too. Why don’t you and all the other meat heads get drunk and go watch your local Tough Man contests instead of watching professional fighters and pizzing your panties every time 2 guys don’t stand toe to toe and slug each other in the head until they’re IQ’s are nearly as low as yours.

greengiant Says, in 4-14-2012 at 22:05:35 from    

ok so dana said all main event fights would be 5 rounds?dana lies and lies and lies.

greengiant Says, in 4-14-2012 at 22:07:45 from    

@Jabnu what a coward.easy to talk tough online.morons like you expect everyone to keep their hands down and trade punches.

Tempted Says, in 4-14-2012 at 22:22:01 from    

@mr. lower case
Hush little baby don’t say a word.

PitfighterZ Says, in 4-14-2012 at 22:38:24 from    

There was no running in this fight. Gustaffson lit up Silva in almost every exchange, dropped him a couple of times, threw him around like a bag of potatoes… what else can anyone ask?
You may like Silva, but he was outclassed tonight. It happens. Ring rust, being out of the juice, facing a very fast fighter with good footwork… If you think it’s easy, go try it yourself.

Anyone who has ever said that Joe Rogan sounded biased when commentating has got to be sitting with their ass in the hands and their mouths by their balls while listening to this…

Good fight though.

KouNTa KuLCHa Says, in 4-14-2012 at 23:10:20 from    

This played out just like my Spider-sense said it would.
Mauler looked great, Silva looked… well, he was there.
I think most of you were counting Alexander out cause; A. You don’t know him, & B. Y’all think Thiago Silva is hot. ;) You ain’t gotta lie to kick it…♠

KouNTa KuLCHa Says, in 4-14-2012 at 23:11:49 from    

Oh, and HELLO Sweden! Damn, who else didn’t enjoy the unison crowd chants of a White Stripes song. Next stop…Copenhagen! :)

@ mr. lower class. Damn r you that fake of a fight fan that you are still referencing Diaz vs Condit, I’m so sick of that fight that i could care less who won.

dana whites mom Says, in 4-14-2012 at 23:59:40 from    

thiago was paid not to grapple or go for takedowns to promote the ufc in sweden. and did he kiss thiago at the end?

villajc Says, in 4-15-2012 at 00:46:55 from    

This is my first time watching Thiago fight and I was not impressed at all. Commentators kept talking about his stand-up which in my opinion is non-existent. He had no footwork, no head movement, dropped his hands when throwing punches, and didn’t know how to cut the ring. Maybe it was ring-rust due to inactivity but that was my observation from this fight.

cc Says, in 4-15-2012 at 01:09:04 from    

once again no five rounds!!!! wtf

dave Says, in 4-15-2012 at 01:19:18 from    

Alex is super fast with his shots and light on his feet, but he could have run a little less, he has the talent so why not use it.

Thiago is always very entertaining to watch, he is one tough son of a bitch that always wants to fight and goes forward.

xformat Says, in 4-15-2012 at 03:35:39 from    

I didn’t particularly care for the constant comparison to Jon Jones. Sorry. Gus doesn’t really even come close. There wasn’t one elbow, not one take down, zero ground and pound, no “killer instinct”….nothing at all like Jones.

Joel Says, in 4-15-2012 at 03:41:20 from    

@dana whites mom
What makes you say that?

FailSonnen Says, in 4-15-2012 at 04:01:10 from    

This might be a foreshadowing of Jones vs Evans….

Dogpitt Says, in 4-15-2012 at 04:24:16 from    

@ Dana White’s Mom

I don’t think Silva ever get close enough to even try for a takedown! And, I noticed the kiss and the cuddle Silva got at the end from Alex – how sweet!

Schism Says, in 4-15-2012 at 05:16:42 from    

nothing spectacular. Like Jon Jones, just another Anderson Silva imitator!!!

kaobeto Says, in 4-15-2012 at 06:03:09 from    

Thiago “the Thug” is a good gate keeper. Shouldn’t be cut from UFC.

RickJames Says, in 4-15-2012 at 07:09:19 from    

Okay I thought main events were 5 rounds? Also, they need to start penalizing fighters for running. Alex ran the whole fight.

Mattarbodum Says, in 4-15-2012 at 07:18:00 from    

It wasnt 5 rounds since its illegal here in Sweden, Great performance by Alex though!

SaoNi Says, in 4-15-2012 at 08:05:28 from    

How can someone call dodging and evading attacks running?

Next to that i didn’t think Gustafsson dependend only on hit-and-run tactics. He actually pushed forward a lot, and clearly countered a lot of Silva’s attack.

Looks nowhere near the Diaz/Condit fight to me.

SaoNi Says, in 4-15-2012 at 08:16:43 from    

And yeah, where was the 5th round?

Roderic Says, in 4-15-2012 at 08:56:29 from    

@dana whites mom, “paid not to grapple”?! As if Thiago’s grappling skills would have won him the fight? Ma’am, that’s one Brazilian not exactly high up on the BJJ list. He has skills, but he’s no Nogueria.

akmd114379 Says, in 4-15-2012 at 10:19:48 from    

i didnt see any running here either just a guy picking his shots and moving. He fought a smart fight. Yea I liked Thiago in the beginning but Alex’s performance made me a fan. Im not going to say he’ll beat JJ but should be a good fight.

pitbull1779 Says, in 4-15-2012 at 10:23:46 from    

Completely outclassed.. And the reason he showed no “killer instinct” as someone has asked, is because he is a smart fighter and respected Silva’s power. I was very very impressed with the clinic he put on. I agree its time for them to throw him in with someone with more skills. For some reason i keep thinking Machida would be a great match. :-)

mscash Says, in 4-15-2012 at 10:24:20 from    


Joe Rogan?

That was Goldie and Ken Flo.

mscash Says, in 4-15-2012 at 10:35:01 from    

lol… and if you think those two were biased .. just think of how much more Rogan is biased.

Twana Says, in 4-15-2012 at 11:17:28 from    

SEAN_VANCE the fight was not 5 rounds because it was not for the belt.

pitbull1779 Says, in 4-15-2012 at 11:21:41 from    

Btw they said why it was not 5 rounds.. Something along the lines as this was not the originally set fight (Alaxander/NOG) and therefore would not be the usual main even 5 rounder.. IDK.. sounds a little stupid but that is what rogan said.

not anonymous Says, in 4-15-2012 at 15:08:34 from    

mr. lower case – 1st You could retain judgment of other people’s IQ until have a grasp on the english language. The word you meant to use is “their” not “they’re”. As it reads it basically says “until THEY ARE IQ’s are nearly as low as yours.”.

2nd – Diaz did beat Condit. If you don’t want to box with Diaz and you’re scared of his BJJ, turn down the fight. Backing up, and throwing light leg kicks is not Effective striking, aggression, or octagon control. Those are the judging criteria. Notice the use of the word effective, I could tummy slap you for 25 minutes, but is that the point of combat?

JoeDog Says, in 4-15-2012 at 15:35:47 from    

Gustaffson has some serious cardio.

tkou Says, in 4-15-2012 at 15:50:13 from    


why u mad bro all pussies running away from u so u got no p****? single for life!

Ruddo293 Says, in 4-15-2012 at 16:10:40 from    

A fight between Gustafsson and Jon jones is inevitable. Enough said!

southiejimmy Says, in 4-15-2012 at 17:07:29 from    

@jabnu, who exactly is the p**** that was running? Are you refering to gustaffson? Thats funny, because he did a pretty damn good job of dominating and controling the f****** fight for a guy that was running.
Controlling the fight, having a good game plan, good movement and avoiding damage and punishment doesnt mean your running, it means your a better fighter than your opponent,…at least on that night.
Anyone who says gustaffson was running is an idiot who knows nothing about combat sports.

southiejimmy Says, in 4-15-2012 at 17:18:51 from    

@greengiant, i realize thetes alot of dana hate, but before you go making accusations, maybe u should get your facts straight. Sweden only allows 3 round mma fights. Besides that, sweden has no athletic comission, so there is no governing body to aprove a 5 round fight. When there is no athletic comission, then the ufc follows the unified rules of mma, which do not allow for non title 5 round fights.
So as sad as it might make you, dana white is not resonsible for everything that pisses you off. The ufc does not decide how long a fight is, an athletic comission does.

casyboy Says, in 4-15-2012 at 17:27:45 from    

what the hell happend, i thought i heard them announce this as a five rounder, wtf,they blew it again, thiago was coming on…

dub Says, in 4-15-2012 at 18:51:45 from    

lol.. can’t help but laugh at Alexander’s sissy gay looking foot work.. No doubt he’s dangerous and what not.. but it just looks like he’s prancing out there to a Madonna song.. haha.

dub = gay Says, in 4-16-2012 at 00:31:30 from    

True, listening to Anik or Florian makes me appreciate the hell out of Rogan and Goldberg… oh, and you can tell who the butt-hurt Brazilians are, love it…

southiejimmy Says, in 4-16-2012 at 06:20:04 from    

@casyboy,…….no, no he wasnt!!

mscash Says, in 4-16-2012 at 11:29:49 from    


listening to Anik & Ken Flo doesn’t have me missing Goldie & Rogan. Both pairs of commentators have done their jobs … promoting the UFC. It just became more obvious in this fight — even with Anik and ken Flo as being the commentators. I’m understanding now that Ken Flo, Anik, Brian Stan

The bias provided( comparison to a fighter 10 levels above you) is /has been over the top.

There are no more wonders of how Brock made such a slice of UFC pie with his brief career.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 4-16-2012 at 11:42:29 from    

You know nothing about MMA or any combat sport.

@Everyone still talking about Diaz Condit.
Will you shut the F*** up about this please.Condit won thats all stop talking about it.

That’s it you said it it’s your 1st time seeing him fight so it’s stupid to say his stand-up is non existant when he lost to a great striker.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 4-16-2012 at 11:44:35 from    

@Not anonymous
Go tell Condit to give yo uthos “tummy slaps” or “light leg kicks” and you won’t be standing.Go to any martial arts or boxing gym and stop being so ignorant and stupid.

KungFuLowKick Says, in 4-16-2012 at 11:49:46 from    

Stop smoking so much crackand maybe then you’ll understand he wasn’t running he was outboxing him.Go watch hockey fights or the stupid arm wrestling boxing if you think fighters shouldn’t move retard.Those sports might be better for you.

MMA noob splitter Says, in 4-16-2012 at 11:55:03 from    

Tiago y no take downs y no clinch.. he did not use all of his tools.. that was all of Gustafsson he used all he had. the Tiago that fought evans would of deafeated gustafsson.. Sliva has a a good clinch game and has decent takedowns and TOP LEVEL grappling that we did not see.. we saw him pressure be he didnt pressure into the cage like he usually does he has good doubles and slings when he has his oppenent againt the cage… And his GNP is also TOP LEVEL.. I agree with Dana Whites Mom He was Paid Off..lol
