I only remember seeing a leg kick by Houston within the first 2:50 of the first round. Kimbo landed some good licks on Houston, and when it got to the ground, it was absolutely horrific to watch. Kimbo's ground game was one of the worst I've ever seen. I knew he didn't have one, but man... I didn't know it was THAT bad. Hella tried to get Houston in a Rear Naked Choke but was not doing it right. Then the rest... I don't even know what the hell he was doing. Houston... did nothing. Not impressed at all. Both fighters were COMPLETELY exhausted at the end, which was the most hilarious part. Neither are in MMA shape.
Didn't catch Marcus Jones' fight, but I heard he lost via KO.
I thought the McSweeney/"Titties" fight was alright. The TKO was a pretty good one. Flying knee, Muai Thai clinch knee, straight right... DONE. McSweeney won that, BTW.
Big Country put the hammer down on Schaub as well. It's absolutely hilarious and disgusting looking at Nelson's boiler hanging over his shorts. I mean seriously, there's fat... and then there's FAT. And even though I'm not a huge fan of Big Country, his KO on Schaub was a good one. Just a plain right that packed a lot cause Schaub's jaw looked dislocated for a second and his expression was priceless.
I was disappointed in the Houston/Kimbo fight, because it seemed like Alexander came out scared and decided to just attack Kimbo's knee. I've seen Alexander come out and destroy opponents and that didn't look like the same guy. Kimbo got him with a couple good shots. I sorta disagree with your ground game comments. Not saying it was good, and the choke attempt was pathetic, but the fact that he maintained control on top was a good step for him. I can see the improvement. Those slams were pretty impressive too.
I watched Marcus' get knocked out, and man, did that guys potential go straight down the drain. There is a formula to beat him because he doesn't want to get hit. Meathead has some power too, and I like the post fight interview. Mitrione seems like a good dude, on the show he was made out to be a crazy idiot.
I was impressed with Roy Nelson, even if i don't like him. Schaub just got caught. The one constant throughout the show, was Roy Nelsons confidence. He didn't puff out his chest and do anything, he just felt like he was the best guy there, and he showed it saturday. Now only if Brock Lesnar could fight again, and they could go at it. I'd love to see a role reversal where Roy can't get up off his back.
