amazing fight

gunnyhighway99 Says, in 3-8-2008 at 12:26:49 from    

I just watched this fight last night. They are both very impressive strikers, but they got gassed!! I think the ref was just waiting for one of them to hit the canvas so he could stop it. Very impressive!!

bigdave Says, in 3-8-2008 at 12:37:57 from    

wow, thats one of the best stand up wars ive ever seen. theve both got good heart to carry on so long

Great fight w/ great hearted fighters…FYI Cyborg almost had a calf crank in the first round…thats what he was goin for at the last moment of the 1st rnd. and i believe he would have gotten it with 10 more seconds maybe not cause i would have sunk it in right away so maybe he didnt know that he could have calf cranked, or didnt know what one was

that was a sweet fight both men very gassed at the end lol i though Melvin was going down when he was getting owned in the clinch just before he knocks cyborg out

kokin Says, in 3-8-2008 at 13:42:02 from    

Wowwww. Very impressive boxing skills from Manhoef. If would just learn how to use his knees.. Veeerry nice fight!!!

SAGAT Says, in 3-8-2008 at 15:40:14 from    

whutta fight!!! fatigue kicked both of their asses.

Viking Says, in 3-8-2008 at 15:57:38 from    

The first half of the first round was impressive: each fighter giving it their all. Manhoef clinches, throws a devastating knee, backs up to take advantage, and then… nothing. Stands there. Cyborg stands there. They talk. “how are you feeling today?” “Quite good, mate. Cheers. After this you want to go down the pub for a pint?” They gab about gossip, Justin Timberlake, how fat they are.

Seconds pass. Suddenly, Cyborg reverses.

That’s only one of two things: They were paid off to throw the fight after it looked like “anyone could win,” and there was a “last minute finish, like in a Rocky movie,” or Melvin’s a great striker, but even with a good clinch, even with one crippling blow after another, he was too inexperienced to capitalize on it. I’ve never seen him before, but I assume that he’s got the experience.

Watch the video again. WTF?

does cybord, have mike tyson tattooed on him lol?

wasabi7200 Says, in 3-8-2008 at 18:07:11 from    

nice combos by melvin but yeah these boys should have jumped on the bike!

nick Says, in 3-8-2008 at 18:31:58 from    

Damn. That was crazy. Melvin literally ate some shots just so he could conserve energy and had just enough left in the tank to land that left hook and knock him out. Awesome fight

2 TUFF Says, in 3-8-2008 at 19:18:02 from    

respesct these guys deserve it hope dana sees this vid so i could see these two again, they can be some great contenders for the light heavy title

James Says, in 3-8-2008 at 19:39:02 from    

I would have love to see what would have happened had the ref not stopped the fight. Horrible stoppage!!!! I wonder who would have ended up on top, albeit hitting as softly as possible.

D-Rex Says, in 3-8-2008 at 19:52:32 from    

weak cardio, gassed? ha, i wanna see you bitches go at it for that long

D-Rex Says, in 3-8-2008 at 20:12:42 from    

Kimbo vs Manhoef!!!

dominic Says, in 3-8-2008 at 23:26:57 from    

WOW What a brawl

Richard Says, in 3-9-2008 at 00:49:44 from    

when i saw this fight over a year ago i watched it like 10 times, to this day its still dosent bore me and ive seen it a hundred times. it really is like a rocky movie, i love how cyborg dosent realize he gets ko’d and wakes up trying to throw those baby punches to melvins chest half unconscious. ive been telling people to watch out for this guy for a long time, hes one of the most technical dutch kickboxers and has brutal power.

BlackEye Says, in 3-9-2008 at 00:57:11 from    

What are you talking about Chef Erik? Forest could stand with these guys. He got his arm broke in a fight once and he still ended up knocking the guy out. Anyway it was a great fight between 2 nobodys. I love watching no names beat the s*** out each other.

daym Says, in 3-9-2008 at 00:58:12 from    

hoooooolllyyyyyy s#!t. dat was a crazy fight. gotta love the xena shorts on melvin too. only a true champ can wear that.

rhetro Says, in 3-9-2008 at 01:13:36 from    

now thats how u fight.
their conditioning was not that great, but both hav great heart keeping the pace up like that, even when they were exhausted there wasnt a weak strike thrown.
i think forest could take em cuz he can last longer in a high paced fight and take some hits(ex. ultimate fighter 1 finale and tito). i think they have simalar styles and it would be a great match just like this one.
and to say that it makes ufc look like whimps is just retarded….hav u not seen the fighters in the 205 class? go check it at ufc.com

Hubinho Says, in 3-9-2008 at 02:20:23 from    

holy F*** best fight i have ever seen

mmatko, you are a godly website

Hubinho Says, in 3-9-2008 at 02:26:10 from    

and honestly, rhetro, i think u should wait till r balls drop before the next time u reply.. u might not embarrass yourself so badly

jordan485 Says, in 3-9-2008 at 02:40:10 from    

wtf best fight ive ever seen man why cant all fights be like that
i luv wen fighters just tee off on each other like that

gsp vs anderson silva (its coming)

jessem305 Says, in 3-9-2008 at 06:06:52 from    

Unbeleivable, i almost had a tear come out when cyborg tried punching his chest not knowing hed already lost, touchy moment…. Best fight ive ever seen

john Says, in 3-9-2008 at 11:41:30 from    

‘juiced ‘ test both of them to see what happens

Dogg Says, in 3-9-2008 at 13:51:08 from    

Amazing fight!! Blackeye, just because they don’t fight in the UFC and aren’t American it doesn’t mean they are nobody’s!!!!!!!!! They are both f****** awesome and gave everything.

Crusher Says, in 3-9-2008 at 15:44:44 from    

Huntington Beach kudos to Melvin!

That was awesome when he took the best Cyborg could give stood in the middle of the ring and then brought it.

Five stars to both fighters!

mma geo Says, in 3-9-2008 at 16:34:32 from    

great fight … i love fights like this!!!!!

obie Says, in 3-9-2008 at 22:33:25 from    

oh to good. what a fight. both of these guys can take a punch.

dirty 7-30 Says, in 3-10-2008 at 03:24:33 from    

WOW… ain’t MMA great!… on their feet, on the ground (not this fight, but in general)… it’s all exiting.

If elbows had been allowed, I’m sure the fighters wouldn’t have gassed so easy.

Goro Says, in 3-10-2008 at 12:42:02 from    

WoW he was lucky!!!!

Esteban Says, in 3-10-2008 at 17:50:26 from    

great fight

Dutchman Says, in 3-11-2008 at 01:33:08 from    

wow melvin really put his hands on his hips and took punches to the face like it was nothing…great fight…dont think ive ever seen one like this

Dax Fierce Says, in 3-11-2008 at 03:01:46 from    

oh my god that was awesome. mad props to those guys they threw it down.

damaja Says, in 3-11-2008 at 12:06:29 from    

A lot of heart, not enough conditioning.

Doc Says, in 3-11-2008 at 15:18:00 from    

That was absolutely the most amazing Mixed Martial Art display of heart and effort I have ever witness in my life.

Corey Says, in 3-12-2008 at 03:48:57 from    

Ahh, another case of too much weight training, not enough treadmill. Amazing fight. If only they breathed between punches.

Bareknuckled Says, in 3-12-2008 at 05:08:53 from    

Insane fight – Cojones muy grande – All American idiots will not recognize

marquito76r Says, in 3-12-2008 at 18:26:58 from    

whers the BLACK GERBIL, I wanna know your thoughts on this scrap

WAR Says, in 3-17-2008 at 22:46:49 from    

even though they got gassed it was a very good fight i like to see fighters just hiting each other with no thought about blocking at all but, but really i expect more from a champ even a cage rage champ.

LAZER212 Says, in 5-13-2008 at 20:38:42 from    

Absolutely nutty.

the Levi Says, in 5-15-2008 at 22:45:12 from    

wow that was awesome i never saw this fight before.the ending was hilarious with Cyborg throwing some really weak punches to Melvins body.
