I wanna see this guy in UFC

Beast w/ 8 Limbs Says, in 11-4-2012 at 09:20:41 from    

I thought this was to be Tyrone’s “MMA debut”

Powertele Says, in 11-4-2012 at 09:24:57 from    

Nice set up fight. He still needs like 10 more of these.

Yoplait Says, in 11-4-2012 at 09:29:53 from    

Why? Do you want to see him get subbed in under 2 min?

Anthony Says, in 11-4-2012 at 09:44:36 from    

defitnately I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s a contract at his home waiting for him now been watching his tape for a while he’s bout to r*** the 205 division jones who

hehe Says, in 11-4-2012 at 09:55:51 from    

I am excited. This guy with some tk defense and some jits will kill everyone

Maximumpain Says, in 11-4-2012 at 09:56:44 from    

Can’t tell to much from that mismatch.

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 11-4-2012 at 10:04:09 from    

That was impressive and unimpressive at the same time.Tyrone did look good,but he looked good in a kickboxing match with Ma gloves.The guy never even thought about getting Spong to the ground.It’s like starting a fight vs Maia and you pull guard the second the fight starts,dumb strategy.

he was one of fedors thai trainers for those of you who might find that interesting

PitfighterZ Says, in 11-4-2012 at 10:39:19 from    

I saw somewhere that Tyrone said he “forgot” to finish the fight after the first knock down.
Well, nobody doubts his ability to whoop anyone’s ass striking. I want to see him against someone with a sick ground game and see if he can survive. If he can, that’s a scary prospect in the division.

Como decimos en Panamá… le dieron tremendo bulto !!

ultimate fighter Says, in 11-4-2012 at 11:23:53 from    

the best technical kick-boxer in the world vs old white guy with no wrestling.
This guy could be much better than anderson silva on the feet but who actually wants to see spong get clinced or on the floor

tyrone is a beast

MuffDiggler Says, in 11-4-2012 at 11:31:23 from    

as expected

jonny Says, in 11-4-2012 at 11:31:54 from    

lets first see his groundgame … i like him a lot but i dont think this was a real hard opponent…

Pocker Says, in 11-4-2012 at 11:33:48 from    

how bout he just stays here and wsof starts getting big.

dhon Says, in 11-4-2012 at 11:50:25 from    

now give him a wrestler and see how he does.

amer Says, in 11-4-2012 at 12:39:22 from    

in stand up nowhone can deal with this guy!!!If he works on his wrestling and jiu jitsu he can be champinon in UFC!!

MMAgiantsilva Says, in 11-4-2012 at 13:06:44 from    

Damn that was a ridiculously good debut. Spong looked awesome in the stand up.

fyasko51 Says, in 11-4-2012 at 13:11:38 from    

the first right high leg kick was intense. check out the people sitting ringside reactions.

walter Says, in 11-4-2012 at 13:27:15 from    

loved spong while kickboxing love this even more.
but kinda disrespectfull towards the netherlands taking this suri flag but roots are roots.
hope he makes its to the ufc but i’m not counting on it.

greeting from holland :D

rampitup Says, in 11-4-2012 at 13:53:33 from    

Spong looked like he was nervous. His stand-up usually looks a lot smoother. Just needs some more time, though.

Lazer212 Says, in 11-4-2012 at 14:38:25 from    

Oh man how’d that happen?? Oh wait one of the best kickboxers in the world fought an old slow junker, who didn’t even try to take him down.

zack Says, in 11-4-2012 at 14:49:41 from    

So the MMA ‘experts’ have spoken yet again. Just like they said JDS could never become UFC HW champion cause he hasn’t shown any ‘ground-game’, and JDS was supposed to lose to Cain as Cain has awesome wrestling. Same thing with Ubereem, he was supposed to lose to Lesnar, what happened there guys?? And now, it’s Tyrone turn. You can’t say he will lose to a wrestler/grappler until he fights one, and i tell you now it won’t be easy to take this guy down. He is a massive strong light HW, all he has to do is like what JDS has been doing and use his awesome striking and take-down defence to get the W. This was a spetacular MMA debut.

gamblore Says, in 11-4-2012 at 15:08:19 from    

tyron’s camp is with some of the best mma wrestlers. This guy will be a force to be dealt with.

metallicafan Says, in 11-4-2012 at 15:41:28 from    

Why the F*** did that guy fight him? he threw maybe 6 punches and never clinched or tried to take him down…..

Perulives Says, in 11-4-2012 at 16:20:12 from    

Zack, it works both ways. Melvin Manhoef is a great example of a world champion quality kickboxer that gets demolished as soon as it hits the ground.. All depends on how Spong adapts

ramrod Says, in 11-4-2012 at 18:32:40 from    

im sick and tired of the wish he was in the UFC ..so what so he can get freaking treated like s*** like all the rest of the fighters that are in there have you guys forgotten about the hendo and the jon fitch situation ..wish there was a number two org out there oh wait a minute UFC bought STRIKEFORCE and PRIDE damn MONOPOLY!

thaifighter1 Says, in 11-4-2012 at 18:57:19 from    

if his wrestling and jits comes up hes gonna be a force at 205 i think he has 3 more fights on his WSOF contract tho lets see him with a better grappler next time and start building that game more. if Jones is still at 205 in 2 or 3 yrs that could be a sick fight

Theotherguy Says, in 11-4-2012 at 19:13:24 from    

Spong = World class Kickboxer
Bartlett = Boxer (that no one has ever seen)

1. Why did Bartlett take the fight.

2. Why is it legal for one guy to be AMAZING at striking, and get paired up with another guy who knows no ground game, only boxing, and hasn’t won s*** in boxing.

metallicafan Says, in 11-4-2012 at 20:20:03 from    

^ TRUTH, And they say hes a “boxer”, but what real boxing skills has he shown? Keeps his lands down, doesn’t throw many punches at all, he maybe threw more than 1 punch once, and maybe 2 punches with his dominant hand. The dude was their to lose!

kill_666 Says, in 11-4-2012 at 21:06:52 from    

Tyrone Spong in the 205 division that’s interesting, 2 or 3 more fights like this then to the UFC.

Iron_Cobra Says, in 11-4-2012 at 23:05:36 from    

Spong actually fought overeem in k1 and almost won. Overeem was just too big for the guy. So with the alot of training with rumble johnson he could be a wrecking machine.

Willsteezy Says, in 11-5-2012 at 01:09:24 from    

AJ and Spong both fought lops. AJ should fight Sponge and the winner goes on to better things because on this card, these two studs fought soft ass punching bags.

Freaklegion Says, in 11-5-2012 at 01:11:00 from    

What a joke.

facefrack Says, in 11-5-2012 at 02:46:42 from    

i think this kind of scenario is actually somewhat frequent. Bartlett might actually be a much better boxer than this fight gave space for, but the combination of Spong’s early headkick n his excellent movement n creativity confused Bartlett, so he froze. It was a little like what happened when Jon Jones fought Rampage. Rampage was confounded by Bones’ creativity n couldn’t make a move. It’ll be exciting to see Spong’s MMA career unfold, because wrestling every day with Rashad Evans is almost guaranteed to cultivate a badass wrestler… Hopefully Rashad doesn’t have to lose any more friends in the UFC title hunt when Spong red rovers.

leo Says, in 11-5-2012 at 20:42:32 from    

Anyone say Anderson Silva?

nafanway Says, in 11-8-2012 at 12:40:45 from    

Everyone is sounding suprised at his debut. Dont forget spong has been one of the top k1 fighters in the world for years he knows what he is doing when in comes to stand up. Wrestling will be interesting to see these k1 fighters normally come in with amazing standup but then someone decides to make a really boring fight but cuddling them for three rounds and not even getting a sub.

chingcang Says, in 12-2-2012 at 03:34:02 from    

too bad spong is more like a spongy porous butt that sifts poop in and out like a farting boner.
