John Alessio: “Brock Larson is a pussy”

(John Alessio shortly after the stoppage. More pics from the fight at CombatLifestyle)

There’s been a bevy of illegal strikes lately that have resulted in stopped fights and every time there’s a big debate on if a fighter is a pussy or not when they can’t continue. Lots of people are still convinced that Shinya Aoki was a pussy, despite the fact that he most definitely took a downward elbow to the neck. No one really blinked when Thomas Denny bowed out of his fight against muay thai fighter Malaipet for pretty much the exact same thing.

I think I’ve got it figured out now: if a fighter is winning the fight and takes an illegal blow, then people don’t give him too much of a hard time for bowing out. When it’s too early to tell who’s winning or if a fighter is losing, then he gets major shittage over it. This is kinda a bullshit way of working things, but hey … us MMA fans are assholes and we don’t like it when ‘injuries’ get in the way of seeing two guys beat the shit out of eachother.

At the last WEC there was another illegal strike loss handed out, this time to John Alessio in his fight against Brock Larson. The fight hasn’t been aired yet (apparently it’ll be shown on a Wreckage episode soon), but already Alessio is banging the ‘pussy’ drum pretty hard:

In a fight that didn’t air last Wednesday night during the WEC’s broadcast of WEC 33, Brock Larson defeated John Alessio by DQ after Alessio illegally kneed Larson when he was on his way back up to his feet. Alessio didn’t pull any words as he told an interviewer, “I do think Brock Larson should’ve manned-up and continued to fight. Fractured jaw or what, I think a real fighter, a real man would get up and fight me.”

When asked about what Alessio told Larson after the fight, here’s what he had to say, “I called him a pussy. My 83-year old grandma is tougher than him. I got no respect for the guy, I got no respect for his corner-men either for telling him to take the easy way out.”

On a related note, Larson was medically suspended by the NSAC with a possibly broken jaw. I’m not about to make a definite comment on the fight until I see it, but kneeing a grounded fighter is only slightly below soccer kicking a fighter or elbowing them in the neck as far as stupidity goes. Alessio took a risk throwing wild knees and now he’s trying to act like it wasn’t his fault that he blew the fight.

    fuck you john alessio. fuck you. that fucking prick.

    you know what he’s saying? He’s saying “we agreed to compete with a certain set of rules, and i broke the rules, injuring my opponent. in my head, my opponent is in the wrong, because i love to eat human feces.”

    I think Brock should be allowed to knee John’s grandmother in the head and see if she gets up for more. Then the decision should be reversed and Brock losses by being a fucking pussy. If John’s grandma survives I think we found Kimbo’s next opponent.

    What a prick. Break a jaw with an illegal strike and then bitch that the guy doesn’t want to continue when you cheat? Get off that.

    The Thomas Denny thing was hilarious though, because you could tell Malaipet did that shit on purpose to get out of the fight and as retribution for the punishment he endured. That shit was so blatantly done on purpose.

  • I think Malaipet was just stupid. Some fighters are like that … they just spazz and let instinct rule them. Plus in thai boxing you get away with dirty shit all the time

  • kentyman says:

    I’m just glad the title of this post doesn’t say “Brock Lesnar” accidentally. You were on quite a roll…
