Hendricks finally gets a shot at GSP

Image

After wining his 12th straight fight against Johny Hendricks, George St-Pierre (GSP) continues to be the UFC Welterweight champion. This was Hendricks first five round battle, and there where many questions on whether Hendricks had enough cardio to last the full 25-minute fight. Although Hendricks seemed to slow down after the third round he demonstrated that he is capable of sustaining a five round battle. Hendricks definitely brought his “A game,” making this one of GSP’s toughest fight.

Let’s break down the dispute about the fight that has fans asking for an immediate rematch, Despite the fact that GSP had claim to be stepping away from MMA for the time being, “I need to step away for a bit that’s all I have to say,” he told Joe Rogan after been named the winner.

In the first round GSP starts off aggressive landing a jab right away and using his background in wrestling drooping Hendricks to the mat with a takedown. GSP tried to sit for a mounted guillotine, but Hendricks quickly got on his feet. There was a few times where both where clinched along the fence. Hendricks delivered a a hard hit with his knee, however GSP responded with a left jab.

In the second round Both use more leg kicks this round. However this round would have to be the most troubled for GSP. Hendricks completely owned this round clearly. Delivering shots after shots, The fight was stopped for a few seconds to allow Hendricks to put his mouth piece back on which had fallen after clinching with each other.

There wasn’t to much action during the third round do to the fact that both where missing a lot of their shots, because they where trying to countered each other.  GSP was a little more aggressive during this round.

In the fourth round, GSP seemed to have slipped and Hendricks took full advantage of that. Having the dominant position and landing punch after punch Hendricks chose to let GSP stand up so the fight will return them to their fetes. This round was not very pretty, Hendricks delivered strong hooks causing St. Pierre to bleed a significant amount of blood. Hendricks looked for another possible takedown, but did not get it. GSP had very good balance.

In the final round GSP looked bloody and Hendricks was clean. Hendricks did not seemed worried at all. GSP gets Hendricks down twice but Hendricks is quick to his feet. Both attempt for a Kimura ( a submission hold ) but neither are successful.

George St.-Pierre defeats Johny Hendricks after a split decision by the three judges. 48-47 Hendricks, 48-47 GSP, and 48-47 GSP. A surprising call, when it seemed like Hendricks dominated most rounds. Although Hendricks lost he was still humble about it, saying he would go home train and work on what he did wrong for next time.

Not everyone was happy by this decision the president of UFC  Dana White was furious that GSP was named the winer. He was not angry at GSP, but with the Nevada state Athletic Commission, saying that the governor needs to get involve before they destroy the sport like they did with boxing. He also commented on GSP leaving MMA, and responded with, “ GSP can’t retire, he needs to go home rest, get back and give Hendricks the re-match he deserves.” White couldn’t have said it better Both are great fighters and anyone one of them is worthy of that championship, but lets be honest GSP did not win Hendricks dominated every single round. The only thing left to do is hope that GSP grants Hendricks that re-match he deserves as White said.

Three years later, and they still make it feel like the ‘First Time’

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. Well here i am again trying to keep up with this. So after going to the Jonas Brothers concert in the last week yes i am still into them.

I know i am 21 years old but who cares i grew up listening to them therefore i shall keep supporting them. Any who back to my story, the concert was unbelievable they honestly never seem to disappoint when it comes to putting on a show. They opened up the show with their new hit single “First Time,” and closed the show with one of their old songs “S.O.S” The energy did not drop as Karmin, and DJ Mike Tompkins did an amazing job at getting everyone pumped up before the Jonas bros. took on the stage. I had the time of my life singing at the top of my lungs and frankly it wasn’t because of the alcohol in my system, it felt like i was 15 all over again. You know it’s true the brothers are growing up and it’s nice to see the fans grow with them, although their new sound is more mature, they are still singing about broken hearts, songs to get one dancing, and experience they go through as they are getting older. I can honestly say i am beyond excited for this new album to come out, and are glad to say the boys are back!

Not getting enough of them from the concert i decided to attend their Charity Soccer game this evening. Being a broke college student i decided to make my own press passes to get into the soccer game to cover it. Now i did contact one of the media coordinators their, and i also write for my college newspaper which you guys should check out, Elpaisanoonline.com I got to go on the field for a little while until we got kicked off for not being “Official Press,” to be honest that kind of disappointed me, because i know i am not a prof

essional, but i am trying and just like anyone of them you had to have your start somewhere. The char

ity game benefited the Jonas Brother’s Change For The Children foundation. The game was played against AC United which

consisted of Nick Jonas and other members and Bilbo which consisted of Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas, Wilmer Valderrama and others. AC United took home the win with a final score of 3-2. Personally i am not a big fan of soccer, but it’s nice to see celebrities come together to benefit a great cause. Congratulations to the Boys! And note to self if you ever want to cover an event as press just act like you are meant to be there covering the event and you will fit right in. I do want to say God bless one of the photographers their who was nice enough to help us get in and i quote said “It doesn’t matter if you are in college or not, they shouldn’t give you a hassle to cover an ev

ent.” Hence he helped us get in (: Overall it was a great week.

Here are some pics enjoy!

GSP wins Diaz is still an asshole

This past saturday was the UFC fight the main event in the Welterweight Championship fight featuring GSP (Georges St. Pierre) v.s. Diaz (Nick Diaz). And in my opinion that fight was a complete disappointment. Diaz did a very good job at talking S*** and in the end he only got his ass kicked. Although Diaz is normally considered a good fighter he had nothing to sh

gsp

ow for at the fight, GSP took control of every round, using his wrestling skills. GSP had a total of nine takedown that night.

It seemed as if Diaz did not perform to his full performance. Were GSP took advantage of every situation. Diaz fought with his mouth and not with his skills. At the end of the fight the comments he made to broadcaster Joe Rogan, made him seem nothing more than a sore loser. You have to learn to win, and accept the times you loose. Diaz hint at maybe retiring? I guess he can’t handle loosing. I honestly believe Diaz should grow a pare and get over it.

As for GSP looks like he has an opponent in line already. Johny Hendricks. Hendricks fought in the previous fight, that i would defiantly consider “The Fight Of The Night” with out a doubt.

Hendricks faced of Carlos Condit. Both great fighters with out a doubt. Hendricks is a feisty little guy in comp-arising to Condit. He came out to win, both of them came out to win, but in the end Hendricks came out on top. Hendricks also used his wrestling skills against Condit and had several take downs as well.

I do hope Hendricks receives the shot at fighting GSP after all like he mentioned to Rogan “I earned it,” and he did he deserves a shot. And i look forward to seeing this fight if it does ever happen.

A little competition doesn’t hurt anyone…or does it

A little friendly competition is never bad. But when this competition leads a man to a comma does it become too much then? The Dodgers started the season against the San Francisco Giants. A Giants fan was attending the game, and as they departed he got attacked by Dodger fans.

I am a huge baseball fan and Dodgers are my favorite team, and as a fan these just leaves me embarrassed. How can someones rivalry go so far to hurt someone critically. It seems like fans are going more just to Drink and cause problems than to enjoy the game.

I was very pleased with the speech that was made by a player from both Giants and Dodgers team at the beginning of the game. I am not saying competition is bad because you need something to push you when playing to strive to win. But when it extended to a point of physically or verbally hurting someone is just wrong.

What are you’re thought’s?

Green Bay Brings it Back

The XLV Annual Football Super Bowl was Held today February 6th 2011 at Arlington Texas. Also Known as the home Of the Dallas Cowboys. Green Bay Packers took the Championship defeating the Pitsburg Stealers 31-25. Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to there first NFL victory in 14 years. Starting of strong, scoring two touchdowns in the 1st quarter.

Now Besides the excitement of the game something that everyone looks forward to are the commercials.  With the exception of a few i found it to be that this year’s commercial we’re rather apathetic.

This year’s halftime performance included the Black Eye Peas, Slash, and Usher. Hhhmm kinda of a weird mix, if you ask me? Even though I am a fan of the Black Eye Peas, and Usher, this halftime show was a Fail. The concept and the lighting of outfits which reminded me of Tron were Creative the Audio and tech were disappointing. The concept does not make up for this dreadful performance, as they sang “tonight’s gonna be a good night”  i was just praying that tonight’s performance would end.
