The Incredible Expanding UFC 131 Post!

If you were wondering why Herb Dean stopped the fight in the third so the doctor could check out Shane Carwin … well, maybe you need to order the high def UFC PPV next time. That is a seriously pulverized face right there. (via MMA Weekly)

If you’re wondering whether these are the ORIGINAL green men, that looks a lot like a Vancouver jersey on one of them so I’m pegging them as imitators. (via UFC’s twitpic)

Esther Lin’s pics are already going up at MMA Fighting. Even the ref can’t beleive this shit. There was tons of bad judging at UFC 131 but most of it was just judges giving fighters 30-27 scores when there was no way they earned better than 29-28s. But Omigawa got the complete screw, losing a decision he should have won with all three judges giving the fight to his opponent and one even giving the guy 30-27 scores. Facepalm. Facepalm of the Gods.

Where da gifs at? Where do you think? I don’t think Zombie Prophet from Iron Forges Iron even watches fights. He just churns out the insta-gifs like a fiend. Above, Sam Stout’s KO of the Night worthy finish of Yves Edwards. No KO of the year like some are saying but pretty awesome none the less.

Update on the shitty judging: Nelson Hamilton was the one who scored the Mark Munoz fight 30-27. Dave Hagen gave the Nunes / Florian fight to Florian 30-27. Hagen also gave all three rounds of Omigawa / Elkins to Elkins.

Sam Stout feels like he renewed the rights on his nickname with that nasty knockout of Yves Edwards:

“I’ve been calling myself ‘Hands of Stone,’ and I haven’t knocked anybody out in the last five years, so I was starting to get a little worried about it,” said Stout, whose last KO win came in September of 2007 against Martin Grandmont in the TKO organization.

Dana plays Magic 8-Ball with Kenny Florian’s constant title shot requests:

“More than likely,” White joked. “How’s that for confirmation?”

He was also appropriately pissed off about the judging situation. Enough to really focus on the issue and try to fix it? I dunno. But he sounds like he’s getting there:

“One of the things I want to say – because you guys always hear me, and I did again tonight, smashing the judges – is the guy that was scoring 30-27, seriously?” White said. “Seriously, the guy who judges that should never be asked back to judge ever again.

“I don’t know what the [expletive] in the world that guy was seeing. He should never judge a fight again, ever.”

“Something has to be done about the judging,” White said. “It has to. It’s so bad, and not only does it affect people’s lives, it ruins everything for people that are watching. You watch it, and you’re like, ‘What? What – 30-27? What are you watching?’

“And now we’ve got TV screens. What the [expletive]? You’ve got a TV screen. How did you judge that 30-27?”

  • DaddyPants says:

    Shane Carwin is Darkman.
    when it falls all the way off it’ll be Liam Niesen under there.

  • fishead says:

    Carwin looks like Keith Jardine starring in a remake of The Toxic Avenger!

  • Jim Harbaugh Scramble says:

    fuck shitty judging.

    MMA Weekly posted all the score cards:

  • Blackula Jonez says:

    You guys sure that isn’t Mark Coleman up there.

  • chiggs says:

    @Blackula, Took the words outta my mouth and said same thing after fight was over, looked just like Coleman, hell he fought just like Coleman in his last couple fights…shame what Steroids does to ya…or should say, shame what coming off roids does to ya….After that performance, definitely standing by my thoughts of Carwing = Brett Rogers…shit,they should just make that fight happen…
    As for the Judging, fuck, whatmore can be said about those atrocities..

  • glassjawsh says:

    Never been angrier about a decision then I was over the omigawa disaster. still dumbfounded how anyone scores the last two rounds for elkins. hebasically jyat got bashed in the face Jenna style for the last 10 minutes

  • frickshun says:

    Omigawa fight had me scream out @ my laptop. No one was there to hear my screams except for my bag o Cheetos…….

    Carwin’s skin mask is wonderful.

    Yves looked great til he got KO’d. Sooooo disappointing. Good for Stout. Kid works so damn hard even though he’s a middle of the road guy. The win also means Tomkins keeps his job for a little longer (dude is looking old as hell too). I hope Yves gets another crack (not on the jaw though).
