The UFC is slowly turning into boxing
on June 21, 2013
I would've given this event two stars because of the Johnny Hendricks/Carlos Condit fight, but I could not in good conscience label the dvd as anything other than a one-star stinker full of human you-know-what.
-no behind-the-scenes feature
-no countdown show
-Didn't even include the walkouts for the main event
-didn't even include the post-fight interviews for the main event
Just an all around god-awful shell of a product, given what we've come to expect in the past.
The event itself, quite frankly...sucked. There's one fight on the entire card worth watching and that was the co-main event. I used to be a big GSP fan and still root for him in most of his fights, but I can no longer in good conscience recommend purchasing his events to anyone who expects to receive any sort of bang for their buck. He hasn't finished a fight in almost six years and most likely never will again for the rest of his career. Even when fighting a man whom he despised for insulting him on just about every personal and professional level possible, he was still unable or unwilling to come out of his protective stylistic shell and go for the kill. He's just content to dominate in safety-first fashion for five fairly monotonous rounds of repetitive jabs, evasive footwork, double leg takedowns and positional ground control.
At this point it just is what it is.
This event can be summed up with one simple statement: Mike Ricci vs. Colin Fletcher was the opening bout on the MAIN CARD.
And that's all I have to say about that.
