Will do. Sorry to hear you are stuck at work. Looks like your internet works again though.

I'm a HUGE fan of both fighters!

I want Gracie to win...it's possible that he could.

In the end, though, I think that Hughes will prevail.

Either way, it's going to be a great fight!

I hope so anyway. I don't want it to be a 30 sec knockout, know what I mean?

Ya if Hughes wins I want it to be on a drop and ground and pound but if Gracie wins, I want it to be with some rediculous armbar.

I would like to see something else out of Royce besides a choke. Every UFC Championship he won was with a choke. Mix it up!

I will report the results but I dont hold me to it as I have lots of booze to consume.

Anyway, my guests are arriving so I need to tend to them. Later.

Hummuna, hummuna, hummuna, I thought, ummmmm, that Capt was hosting the MidWest Sit Down this weekend. Uh oh, duty calls. And he says he's not a hero. A 48 hour shift. I wouldn't last 48 minutes in a firehouse.

Bloof, the Mid-west sit down is June 17th. I expect you there. Your ticket will be in the mail soon.....

One of our Capt's blew out his knee and will be out up to 3-4 months. There are gonna be a lot of overtime shifts to fill.
But a 48 is really no big deal. Its the 96's that can really kick your A$$! I have work a ton of 48's, my share of 72's, but 96's I have only done once. I was so lost, had to call home and get directions on how to get back home.......

Directions back home!!! That's like John Madden knew he had to leave coaching when he thought his 16 year old son was 12. Or like yesterday, when I was shaving for the first time in at least three weeks. It was so long, not only do I think I set a personal record, but when I was done, I didn't recognize the guy in the mirror!!! I forgot!!!

And I will mostly likely be in Puerto Rico on the 17th, checking up on my dad, but I surely wish everyone a good time.

The 96's are bad.

I can see your point too. I guess do what works and what is the quickest. I would rather see fights stand up, vs. going to the ground. It is more exciting to see a win by a KO than an arm bar or rear naked choke. But, that is just my opinion.

Yeah, grappling isn't really as sexy as lots of punchs and kicks but if a guy can avoid all that and just wrestle his opponent down and torque on him until he is in a boatload of pain then I respect that as much as good stand up fighter.

By the way Capt, I am not watching that either but I will call up my brother and post an update as soon as the fight is finished.

Hughs wins. Refaree stopage with less than a minute left in round 1. Caugh royce on hist stomach and grond and poinded the back of his head. It was a good stopage. You could tell they really waited to stop it until they were certain.
