Paul did you miss the fight where rich clementi choked Johnsons ass out?

mefninja Says, in 4-3-2008 at 01:46:08 from    

no one 1 dimension wrestlers.. though tommy got a dirty KO on the show.. (cause the guy got poked in the guy) hes made a big mistake.. he got rocked.. and instead of covering up.. he was a fool reached out and tried to grab anthony… big mistake

BigSlick Says, in 4-3-2008 at 01:59:52 from    

“look out Pierre”.lol. Don’t get too excited!

Paul said – Hey white people, enjoy the UFC while you can lol

Hey Paul – Did you see Houston Alexander get layed out by a white boy? MMA doesn’t have any place for ignorant bitches like you. Sissy!

bobinho Says, in 4-3-2008 at 08:10:33 from    

nice!!! hopefully he’ll get a fight with hughes and knock that inbread out, yeah!!!

he’d have no chance against pierre. lol

Felix Vu Says, in 4-3-2008 at 08:30:10 from    

ya anthony johnson looks really good. i felt sorry for tommy too when he got hurt bad then went into desperation mode.

Dude Says, in 4-3-2008 at 11:05:52 from    

Johnson will never get anywhere near the title he got choked out by a lightweight. Oh and Paul rampage is gonna lose his belt within his next 2 fights, and GSP will eventually go up in weight and destroy Anderson Silva you wait.

loco Says, in 4-3-2008 at 12:37:12 from    


Red Says, in 4-3-2008 at 12:51:59 from    

Johnson did get choked out by Clementi, but that was a catch weight fight, where Johnson fought on short notice I believe. He weighed in at 165.. and look at him. HE IS HUGE for 170, especially at 6’2″. He was likely out of his element when fighting Clementi(i haven’t followed johnson enough to claim any of these, but they are just thoughs). Johnson looked real good in this fight though.

lollololol Says, in 4-3-2008 at 13:31:18 from    

lol the reff looks like a goof hilarious and tommy looked scared even in the begging bouncing around like that looked goofy too but yah watch the reff

load of s***


Rivers Says, in 4-3-2008 at 14:50:27 from    

Dude…I really expected Tommy to do better since he being training with Huges and all…guess he still have a long way to go…

Dogg Says, in 4-3-2008 at 14:54:29 from    

Good KO,
Dude, no one on earth can beat Anderson Silva, especially steroid enhanced GSP.

KieranMac Says, in 4-3-2008 at 15:02:30 from    

Tommy Speer has one of the toughest heads in the game (which is good, because he doesn’t keep his hands up). Johnson had to lay it all on him, but he chopped down that tree pretty hard. Feel kinda bad for Speer, he’s just not well-rounded enough to get by in this sport, at least not on this level.

scootie Says, in 4-3-2008 at 15:06:47 from    

White people enjoy the ufc while you can… lol idiot a fast kick boxer beat a alow red neck yeah we are shaking in our cowboy boots ape.. btw watch irvin vs houston… thats the way it goes in the real world ..

bad call again. it was a bullshit stoppage.

Vin Says, in 4-3-2008 at 15:52:19 from    

It looked Silva spanking Lebman.

Derick Says, in 4-3-2008 at 16:23:08 from    

All you jack asses that talk s*** about aj getting choked out. lets see you have a week notice to drop 30 pounds and see how much gas you have in your tank. until your in the ring doing what he douse shut your mouth aj is a good friend of mine. Trust me he will get to the top.

dang! flashes of Silva sharpshooting punches on Franklin..I never knew what the big deal was about Speer, his fights on TUF put me too sleep…another fight like this and he will have to back to shoveling s*** on the range lol

Brendan Says, in 4-3-2008 at 17:15:27 from    

paul 3April2008 Hey white people, enjoy the UFC while you can lol.

Your a fucktard paul!!!

And a racist piece of s*** to go with it…

Rob Says, in 4-3-2008 at 18:44:49 from    

lmao how did i know a racial argument would break out, im just surprised it wasn’t a white guy to start it :P
awesome fight btw, anthony is a great fighter it seems.
color doesn’t matter people just let it go, mma is for everyone!

FlyByKnight Says, in 4-3-2008 at 19:31:39 from    

Anthony Johnson is no joke at 170. I don’t think people realize how imposing he truly is. He has a similar skill set as Chuck Liddell does. He has a wrestling background with a great sprawl that will keep him up standing where he can unleash his vicious punching power coupled with dynamite hand speed and kicks that are very devastating. He’s 6’2″ and has a 78″ reach. I don’t think people realize how monstrous that is for 170 in the UFC. When Johnson got choked out by Clementi, it came at a Catchweight of 177. Anyone who saw that fight knows that Johnson did not get dominated until he started gassing due to his having to cut so much weight before the fight. Johnson took his first two fights in the UFC on short notice, I believe. The guy is an animal for anyone to face at 170. I think he’d knock out St. Pierre without too much problem to be honest about it.

Tapoutking Says, in 4-3-2008 at 19:57:35 from    

Lotta retarded f****** newbs here. I can’t believe some retard would bring race into this especially since most of the titles are held by whites (or non blacks). Stupid M************.

no gi nick Says, in 4-3-2008 at 20:14:31 from    

wow racism is alive and kicking i see.

WAR Says, in 4-3-2008 at 20:24:22 from    

wow stop being so f****** stupid races does not matter in the fight world and if you think it does you aren’t a real fighter your just a bitch and that goes for every one.


WAR Says, in 4-3-2008 at 21:32:39 from    

Tapoutking shut the F*** up how are you goin to say,”I can’t believe some retard would bring race into” then go and says white people have all the belts and on that note what are you even talking abou
randy couture is white
Rampage is Black
Anderson silva is Brazilian
Serra is italian
BJ is hawaiian

slingstone Says, in 4-3-2008 at 21:53:28 from    

Yeah WAR I’m with you on that one. Like ROB said, it was only a matter of time before it became a racial argument. Laughably, it is usually a white guy who starts it by throwing up a N***** or ape comment which is typical on youtube and sometimes on sherdog. The irony of what PAUL said is that as much I believe it was uncalled for (no I’m not white) it harks back to an age old pattern of when black people discover a sport and begin to passionately train for it until they dominate. first it was baseball and boxing, then basketball, then football, then tennis, then golf and now MMA.

pfffff… here I am trying to intelligently approach a cafeteria food fight yeah I know some of you will saying I’m wasting my time but for what it’s worth I guess. The point is if any of you exchanging racial barbs are older than 16 you’re a disgrace to your own race, what’s your excuse for being so immature? Mommy and Daddy didn’t teach you right? That doesn’t fly anymore fellas. Oh and what if PAUL is white himself? or Asian? wouldn’t this whole thing be twice as pointless?

Crusher Says, in 4-3-2008 at 21:53:33 from    

I was impressed. The guy is a legit striker.

BRUTAL KNOCKOT Says, in 4-4-2008 at 02:40:50 from    

ufc’s attempt at attracting middle america red-neck audience=fail

lol did u see him crumbled on 1 leg staring off into another dimension while camera zooms in @ brutal f*ing KNOCKOUT!

Steamer Bean Says, in 4-4-2008 at 04:08:20 from    

Poor kid never had a chance. Johnson just sat in the pocket and countered, Tommy just kept walking into it. I knew this would happen when i saw him on TUF. That Matt Hughes bull s*** don’t work anymore. You gotta be legit on your feet too. This was nothing like Silva picking off other fighters, Tommy is unskilled and inexperienced, Johnson had an easy win here. (not to take anything away from the guy) And for God’s sake fellas leave that racist s*** alone, ya win some ya lose some, that’s it.

unoe c. yetecinko Says, in 4-4-2008 at 07:07:00 from    

rumble is no joke. i wanna see him fight fitch, then have the winner take gsp or serra for a title shot.

JNAP Says, in 4-4-2008 at 12:29:07 from    

hey Rumble is no joke. don’t think he’s ready for a title shot though. i would like to see the UFC give him a couple more fights maybe against some better competition. not to take anything away from him, just Speer isn’t exactly a GSP

whitey Says, in 4-4-2008 at 13:27:47 from    

Ummm, war, WTF are you talking about? Italian is “white”. White is basically any European or west Asian background. So there are more whites holding UFC titles then any other race. I’m not saying that means anything, but if that is the question your trying to answer then you answered it incorrectly. And I don’t think Hawaiian is a race either… it is an ethnicity, along with “Brazilian”.

WAR Says, in 4-4-2008 at 16:08:50 from    

whitey calling somthing an ethnicity is just saying you don’t respect for them as a race of people and 15 years ago Italian was called ginnie becasue white America hated them and the minute they do somthing worth while there white and bj is not white you are just the dumbest person i know.

jeffBaldwin Says, in 4-4-2008 at 22:45:49 from    

Hey great fight too bad the racism wont stop… whether black or white there is no race to blame for it. It is here till we stop it. don’t let one spoil it for all. That guy got rocked hope to see more of him in the future. Please let this sport break the racist barriers. Love you all and Keep supporting. Peace out!

Felix Vu Says, in 4-4-2008 at 23:44:10 from    

i really wish in my heart georges st pierre gets some knockout power like that

war Says, in 4-5-2008 at 08:00:56 from    

War, I’m just saying next time you are filling out a racial information sheet tell the people your “race” is not “white”, but rather is “Italian” and you need that put in as a category. LOL! Or tell them you want the “Hawaiian race” as a category. Then you’ll find out who the dumbest person you know actually is.

And I’m Italian, dumbass, so don’t try to tell me about my heritage in this country. The ironic thing about anti-Italian sentiment is that it was white on white discrimination, just like the the discrimination against German, Polish, and various other nationalities as they have come to the country. It was based on language and culture, not on race. And anti-Italian discrimination pretty much ended in this country a lot longer then 15 years ago. I’m not saying the rare insult doesn’t get thrown around… but widespread anti-Italian sentiment has not existed for at least two or more generations.

aduh Says, in 4-5-2008 at 12:41:22 from    

he kind reminds me of melvin gullard
there was no doubt he’d win he was much better and had a huge reach advantage with a will to knockout
as he gets deeper into the division i think that once he gets taken down to mat its done for
but with the wrestleing and kickboxing hes dangerous on his feet
but k.o.ed instantly against st. pierre im sorry your funny if you actually think that now
and haha i knew people would bitch about race come’on on its not race but your mentality and dedication.

WAR Says, in 4-5-2008 at 13:22:55 from    

wow you use my name that so funny, how old are you seriously i could of changed my name paul and told white people to kiss my black ass you bunch of crackers but i didn’t becasue i’m not a child

I Can Do The Splitz Says, in 4-5-2008 at 15:40:55 from    

Goodnight Britney Speer! I think some of your cows need milking!

war Says, in 4-6-2008 at 01:58:47 from    

Actually, I take that back. I am a child… which is why I think “Italian” is a race and cannot write complete sentences. Trust me though, once I get into the 3rd grade I’ll be smart.

yours truly,

assassins_creed28 Says, in 4-6-2008 at 20:22:52 from    

Well all this talk about race and ethnicity. Truthfully speaking we might have a “black” person ( half african, half irish) running this country. So take all that in consideration.

Assassins_Creed28 Says, in 4-7-2008 at 00:49:01 from    

Now to comment on just anthony johnson.It should have been knockout of the night by far!! F*** that weak ass James Irvin s***!!! 8 seconds of Houston being rocked!! 8 seconds of tom speer being slept!! comparison. I’ve been reading comments on sherdog, here, mmaplayground, etc… Real talk main reason we are commentating is because this is one of the greatest knockouts in mma history. U look at the technique and the pure barbaric nature of the ko and that was a work of f*****’ art. It was not only a prelim, but it opened the night. Im not one of these people jockin’ him (no homo) or hatin’ on cat just because he got subbed by rich clementi, but real talk this dude at the very least creates an excitement and real striker threat in an every-other-skill-set dominated division. You have everything in this division except a one punch knockout striker. GSP is the total package, but he is not going to dominate like an Anderson Silva or possible Rampage. With that said AJ and BJ have the only legit shot at taking GSP’s crown!! He also has to get past Matt Serra 1st. I’m pumped. I really don’t like any other welter beside when BJ is at 170. So Rumble young man Rumble!!!

Come on give the kid a break Says, in 4-7-2008 at 17:28:56 from    

Come on guy, this kid was never very good, he looks like a well i wouldnt say diamond in the rough cuz he is not that good but he has natural power, he needs to learn how to fight. That means he needs to learn how to punch, kick, how to gnp, everything.. There will be a good 5 years until he is in the ufc required level.. He is on the ufc now because a large part of america identifies with him and there is nothing wrong with that. except that this is real fighting and the kid got hurt bad :(

Smashedyoface Says, in 4-7-2008 at 19:52:31 from    

Dude – “GSP will eventually go up in weight and destroy Anderson Silva you wait.” Silva would destroy GSP… no need to even explain that. And this whole race vs. race s*** is stupid. The better fighter wins… it has nothing to do with race. You guys that are going back and forth are the same people that are holing this country back.

Kulena Says, in 4-7-2008 at 20:48:51 from    

Nice job!!! He got his ass whoop!!! That’s my cuz, biggups to cuz-ins in Dublin and Vidalia GA. Holla, Keep it up cuz, much love from Flint Michigan!! We rootin for ya!!

dk3223 Says, in 4-8-2008 at 01:00:24 from    

Alright people enough with all the racial comments for Christ’s sake,thats neanderthal talk. Lets get back to what this forum is really about mma, were this night a superior fighter dominated a less superior fighter, end of story it has nothing to do with race, and all to do with training,skill, and determination.period.

Shocbomb Says, in 4-10-2008 at 03:51:50 from    

Johnson looked great but lets not hand him the belt Yet, This could Houston Alexander all over again, s*** every one thought Houston was the next BIG Thing in MMA. How did that turn out ??? That being said Johnson reminds me of Anderson Silva when he was young fighting in Meca and Shooto. I don’t know who he is training with but if this kid could get a c
serious trainer and MMA school behind him teach him a above average BJJ ground game skt is the limit for him. One thing is for sure he is a top MMA prospect and I myself would not bet against him being in the top 10 one day or even holding that Belt !!! But he has a ways to go and will have to work hard !!!! Let’s wait and see ????????????????????

ntvman Says, in 4-11-2008 at 17:06:18 from    

Johnson is definately a more seasond striker then Houston..Houston has pure muscle behind his striking, making good for KO’s but not precision. Johnson’s striking was all about aiming and hitting the target. Therefore, resulting in 2 nice wins. I know the picture is looking similar to Houston’s steak but its not fair to say that Johnson’s career is going to be the same as Alexanders. Johnson definately has a shot at being a top contender, but not a Champion, yet!

humus101 Says, in 4-12-2008 at 22:45:33 from    

white boy got his ass kicked

jake Says, in 4-15-2008 at 21:50:00 from    

haha yea paul maybe you should worry about getting some black heavyweight boxing title holders. i agree that usually the black athelete is more physically gifted but mma is about much more than that. on this level all of the fighters are phyisically gifted just like any pro sport and like any pro sport the guy that fights smarter and more composed generally wins black or white.

English-Dan Says, in 4-18-2008 at 10:21:19 from    

”Derick April 3 2008”

If AJ is a friend of yours tell him in person I think he’s a f****** star in the making…..anyone who cant see the talent this Kid has is blind…..Tommy just looks like a wrestler…loose one more fight like that Tommy an thats it for you in the UFC….all this race talk is boring me…..Anderson Silva is the fucing man!

rumble Says, in 5-1-2008 at 21:48:49 from    

people this is anthony johnson. im not the one to say much and when i do i talk it on camera but damn whats up with all the white people black people s***? come on we all love the sport lets not make the whole thing look like we are a bunch of dumb ass please. much love and support to every one. i even appreciate my haterz you have the right to say as much as you want.

Josh Says, in 5-7-2008 at 07:22:13 from    

Tommy Speers wasn’t even a top rated competitor, his striking is 3 rate, those takedown attempts were 2nd rate, and it shows why Mac Danzig had such an easy time winning the show, not to take anything away from AJ, he disposed him like a true fighter who deserves to b in the UFC, Tommy really has a long way to go, and should b fighting in smaller organizations until he reaches there, never the less i still think its too early to tell where Anthony Johnson stands at this point in the division, but his stocks definatly went up in my book, and would love to c him fight kosheck, Karo or another top competitor
