True Champion

With another amazing win I think Jose Aldo can be considered one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world. Of course I already considered him one of the best P4P before tonight but with another devastating and brutal knockout over top contender Manny Gamburyan it just puts Aldo's name that much closer to Georges St-Pierre's and Anderson Silva's legacy on my P4P list.

Would people consider Aldo already better than Silva P4P? I can see a small argument there but I say Aldo needs a few more big wins before that happens. As of now, he's going to have to settle for 3rd place on my best "Pound for Pound" fighters list

Oh yeah, did I mention? Zhang Tie Quan won tonight too! He's the first Chinese UFC/WEC fighter I've ever seen fighting and he won via submission. Very nice Zhang, representing the China-men around the world very well.

Team KevJumba

I don't usually watch Amazing race but I think I will this season. At least until Kevin and his dad are eliminated from the show. Go Asian Youtube stars!
This seriously made me laugh so hard.

UFC 119: The greatest ethnic nicknames

We have "The Dominican Demon", "The Mexicutioner", and "The Super Samoan" on this card. Too bad we only have Melvin "The Young Assassin" Guillard and not Sokoudjou aka "The African Assassin". That would be an even more stacked card with ethnic names!

Frank Mir vs. Mirko "CroCop"
I have Mir winning this via tapout. I see him knocking down CroCop and going for the submission win just like he did to Kongo. Of course he can get the TKO or submission if he gets CroCop down but from looking at the rest of the card, I see it easier to get a submission of the night award than knockout of the night.

Ryan Bader Vs. Lil Nog
Bader takes this. I just see his brute strength being too much for Lil Nog to handle on the feet and on the floor. Maybe Bader vs. Jon Jones after this? That would be an epic battle of the 2 biggest rising stars of 205.

Also, I hope Melvin Guillard knocks Jeremy Stephens out cold. I'm a fan of Guillard and his KO power.

UFC 118: MMA vs. Boxing

Couture vs. Toney is being portrayed as a MMA vs Boxing match but I see it more as an oldschool brawl like the early days of the UFC. Just like how Royce Gracie vs. Ken Shamrock was a wrestling vs. jiu-jitsu match, this is much the same. Its a wrestler vs. a boxer.

I'm not going to lie. The fights probably going to be boringggg. Couture will do what he does best and push Toney on the cage in the clinch and then when there's an opening he will go for the double leg takedown. It will be a submission win if we're lucky, but it will probably end up in an unanimous decision for couture.

When you put a boxer like Toney who's trained in MMA for what? 13 month? Vs. a wrestler like Couture who's been in MMA for 13 years! The wrestler will win 9/10 times.

Not time for Silva vs. Sonnen 2

The tap heard around the world!

Some people want to see Silva vs. Sonnen 2 immediately and I totally understand where they are coming from. Sonnen dominated (brutaly dominated) the entire fight. Just take down after take down. And the 1 time Silva got the take down in the 4th round! Sonnen reversed it and ended up on top.

An immediate Sonnen vs. Silva 2 should NOT happen. Immediate rematches should only be done when there is a controversial judges decision: Machida/Shogun 1. It wouldn't be the right move in the long run. This isn't boxing where you only see the same names headlining the main events over and over again. This is the UFC! Where they bring new blood and welcome new challengers. Sure, if a rematch is made Sonnen will talk trash (probably more) and hype the fight even bigger than this one, and a whole lot of people will probably buy the PPV, and good old Dana will probably make a lot of $$. But in order to keep the UFC's reputation of constantly creating new stars Dana/ Joe Silva just has to let this one go.
The rare moment the fight was standing....

Silva cracked his ribs in the 1st round and said he will be out until early 2011. He needs to concentrate on helping the
Nogueira bothers on their upcoming fights and after that passes he wants to go back to Brazil and spend time with his family.

This is what I want to see: Chael Sonnen vs. Vitor Belfort for the #1 contender spot in November. If Sonnen wins, great, make a Silva vs. Sonnen 2. If Vitor wins, great, that was the matchup the UFC originally planned last year. Its a win/win situation!

Roger Huerta's Street Brawl

Apparently Roger Huerta got into a fight last week and he knocked out some random dude. One thing that irritates me about this story is how CBS and TMZ have headlines like "UFC fighter gets into Brawl". 1st off, Huerta is no longer in the UFC, he's in Bellator. 2nd he knocked this guy out because the guy hit a girl first. And I know what you guys are thinking, don't worry, the girl that got punched by the guy wasn't Snooki. Huerta should be a hero but the media has the idea that all MMA fighters are blood thirsty street fighters. With the exception of Kimbo Slice.... but who out there can really call him a mixed martial artist?

Noticed I used the term MMA fighters instead of UFC fighters? It's annoying when people think UFC is a sport. No! UFC is a company, its a league. You don't call up your friend and go like "Hey do you want to play some NBA?" No! You go "Hey do you want to play some basketball?" Not all MMA fights are in the UFC, the UFC is just the highest stage of the world for mixed martial arts competition.

So please remember: UFC is a league NOT a sport, Most MMA fighters are professional with a few bad apples like Paul Daley, Roger Huerta is a BAMF not a street fighter!

This story doesn't really shock me. Roger Huerta or not, if a guy punches a girl he's probably going to get his ass kicked. The only thing that shocked me is that this street fight wasn't in this season's Jersey Shore.

UFC 117: Brazil vs. USA

The entire main card is stacked with Brazilians vs. Americans @ UFC 117! I'm sorry America, I see Brazil winning this one. My picks are: Silva, Alves, Almeida, Guida. 3/4 advantage Brazil. I didn't include Junior Dos Santos vs. Roy Nelson in the prediction because I'm on the fence about that fight.

Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen
Hats off to Chael Sonnen because he made me actually want to see this fight. After Silva's performance against Demian Maia, most fans were disappointed, but Chael Sonnen's shit talk made us want to see the P4P king pin back in the cage to silence his new opponent. And when I say shit talk I do mean a whole lot of shit talk.

He said something on the line of this:
-"I don't do that whole Jiu-Jitsu bullshit because I find it gay for a guy to be in my guard"-
Okay fine, fair enough. We all have our own opinions. BUT WAIT! Wasn't Sonnen a Division I All-American wrestler?? And isn't the whole objective of wrestling is to grab your opponent's legs and drag them to the ground so you are on top of them? So uhh if Jiu-Jitsu is gay... you're homo.

I can go on for hours of how Chael talks trash but we would be here forever. Here is 1 of the few lines he said that was actually funny: "[Silva] doesn’t come from a bowing culture. If you bow in Brazil, they’ll hit you over your head, take your wallet and walk off laughing." - Chael Sonnen

I'm giving this fight to Silva via KO. I hope its the Anderson we saw vs. Forrest Griffen and not the Anderson we saw against Thales Leites in the cage come August 7th.

Does Chael Sonnen stand a chance?
- Its MMA, everyone has a chance. No one thought Fedor would ever lose but here we are with the Last Emperor off his pedestal. The only way I see Sonnen winning is if Silva loses (no duh). What I mean by that is Chael can only win if Silva comes in not @ 100%. If he comes in out of shape, that's probably not a good idea when Sonnen is across the cage from him. This is a extremely slim chance. The only reason I think it will go past the first round is because I think Silva will allow it to go past 5 minutes. He wants to beat up Sonnen, not just just a win over him.

The future of 205

If Brandon Vera has taught us anything its that you should never hype up a fighter before he has proven himself worthy within the top 10 in their weight class. But you know what? I don't care. Jon Jones is the future @ 205. I say he's going to be a champion within 15 months. I would actually say within a year but with Shogun sidelined for another 8 months, and with Rashad being the #1 contender, that's an ambitious goal.

Lets say Jones wins against Vladimir Matyushenko, then I would give him a top 10 fighter. Perhaps the loser of Machida/Rampage? Or if Dana doesn't think he's ready for either fighter, the winner of Lil Nog/ Bader would be a great matchup too.

I guess I'm getting way ahead of myself here seeing that Jones has to get past Vladimir tonight on Versus.

Bop It !

For some reason I couldn't comment on this photo on Facebook. I think its because its your cousin's picture.

Well, there has to be a funny story behind this Gary because no one poses like this while the phrase "Bop it" is in the picture. Anyways, you look like you're having fun. I'm guessing this is at Wonderland?

Asian Pervert?

A few weeks ago when I went to Mix 2 I noticed this guy kept on staring at the TV and he wasn't even playing pool. He must have been watching for a good 15 minutes. If you can't see the TV screen, its a girl in a bikini because some Hooters show was on. Don't let this guy near your wives and kids because I'm pretty sure he's a pervert.

Justin Bieber - Somebody To Love Cover/Remix (Tommy C, Mike, City Boy, J.Reyez, Lil Crazed)

I don't want to sound like I'm hating but maybe the video shouldn't zoom into Tommy C so much. He's not exactly the best looking dude.....And his "dance" moves don't help either. Not taking away his voice though, just saying the video could have been a lot better.

The New Dynasty

The future of the NBA shifted in just seconds when Lebron James told the world he was going to join the Miami Heat next year. The 2nd greatest assembled “Big 3" All-Star cast the league as ever seen is now upon us! (The best trio would be Wilt Chamberlain, Jerry West and Elgin Baylor in the 1968-69 season). Wade and Bosh would have been a strong duo, but add on the 2 time MVP player named Lebron James and that brings the team to a whole new level.

As amazing as those 3 players are, I just don’t see them winning a championship. When Boston created their version of “The Big Three” they also had a rising PG named Ranjo Rando. Oh yeah did I mention? They also had something called a bench! Who else does Miami currently have? Only Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley… The Heat are only going to have about $16million left for 11 spots on the roster. That’s not much wiggle room for a supporting cast. But hey, if all else goes wrong, maybe Lebron, Wade, and Bosh can win the championship all by themselves.

You know what really pisses me off? Now when I play NBA 2K11 online, everyone is going to want to pick Miami. Lame >_>

All I can say now is GO KOBE! Crush them next year.

Fifa finals - Spain vs. Netherlands

Okay, they may not be in the finals but I'm still an Argentina fan.

Spain (Jeffrey) vs. Netherlands (Canny). What a match that’s going to be on Sunday. Not the teams I was expecting at the finals, but hey, that’s the World Cup for you. It’s funny because when we were all picking teams for out football pool they both picked Argentina to win with me. And after they realized that, Canny chose Netherlands and Jeffrey chose Spain. I guess this just shows you I’m not a huge football fan. Well, at least I know enough to call it football rather than soccer.

Sorry Canny, but I’m cheering for Spain in the finals. Not to go against you but I’m choosing Spain because the its team reminds me of the Canadian 2010 Olympic hockey team.

1) They were the odds on favourite to win the tournament before the World Cup began but they lost to Switzerland in the group rounds, just like Team Canada was the favourite to win Gold but lost to the US in the beginning round.

2) The Spanish team has come back to win every single game after the loss and looked stronger each time they took the field, just like Team Canada did against Germany and Russia in the Winter Games.

3) The Netherlands are like Team USA in the Olympics. No one really expected them to make it to the finals, let alone win every single game they played.

I love to watch teams bounce back from adversary because it brings out the true champions. I respect the Netherlands going for a perfect run in the World Cup but my money is on Spain.

Weekends - Diamond on a Landmine

This is going to be a long post. 1st off. I'M 19!!!11 Fun time at Demetres(sp?) gaining 10pounds from this sundae, but it was very worth it. Tasted so good. Thanks for the people who came, I know I switched places last second but I knew my closest friends wouldn't mind =). After dessert Canny, Jon, Xin, and I went back to my place to drink the champaign I bought. Too bad Jenny, Lisa, Karen, and Matthew had to go home, the champaign was SOO good!! (Not really, it had a weird after taste).Saturday was a tiring but decently fun day. I went to my uncle's store in Mississauga for the Italian Festival. I was so sad that day because Argentina lost in the World Cup>< style="text-align: center;">Look at all the drinks we made!!
Jimmy being weird as always (Not my uncle)
A really cool huskie I saw so I just had to take a picture
On Sunday I was planning to just stay home because it was so hot outside. Plus, my body was really soar from working on Saturday too. BUT as always, plans changed and some how I ended going to Jeffrey Cai's house for some poker. Oh yeah, and we soaked Alex in champaign since it was his Bday.

On Monday the power went out at my work area so my boss just told me to go home. The traffic was horrible. Traffic + extreme heat = alot of cars honking. Thats why his guy is the BAMF of the day. He random runs on to the middle of the streets and starts directing traffic. A part of me thinks thats illegal.... but who cares, he helped the situation!As I was almost to Union station there was a crowd of people surrounding The Royal York Hotel with Mounties at the doors. People were saying it was the Queen and I was thinking "Argghh should I miss my train to see the Queen?? Hell yes! When the heck am I going to get another chance to see her majesty??" But then.... it was just Harper.... >___> Every one was like "WHAT?? Just Harper? Aww lets go." I missed my train for Harper?? Not worth it!Well that's pretty much what happened to me this past weekend. I didn't get much sleep but it was definitely fun. I would have mentioned about going to the bar to watch UFC 116 but I had a horrible time there >_>. Horrible service, horrible customers.

Oh, and also, Thanks Canny for helping me know the times for the Go Train yesterday.

BBQ next week!

Weekends - "You're Ugly!"

OKAY! I have to remember to always bring my camera around with me on weekends because if I don't take a picture of it I either forget about what happened or I just don't want to write about it since there's no visual aid. *Thanks to the people who sent me pictures*
Taste of Asia 2010

I didn't have work on Friday, thank you G20, the only thing you are good for is making me skip work. When Jon and I left the gym on Friday we saw Lisa and she said she had to walk home. So I was kind enough to lend her my bike while I jogged.Jonathan and I went to see Bosco, Vivien, and Grace at Splendid China after and I have to say, it was pretty boring. And wth was Bosco wearing? A poncho?
Notice the Brazil flag falling? Its a sign!!!

Then it was finally Taste of Asia on Saturday but Bosco took forever to come out. And when he pulled something out of R.Kelly's books and brought a girl on to the stage. I guess he didn't have many girls to choose from....Who said Bosco is gay? Not meAfter TOA we were all starving and we went to go KBBQ. The best highlight of the weekend has to be when Jonathan randomly opened the window in the car and shouted "YOU'RE UGLY!!" out at the most random people. Its more funny coming from him because you just don't expect it.After KBBQ we went to Matthew's house to play a bit of MJ. We barely played because we were all so tired.
Lisa do you want to play Mahjong?Sunday I got to eat dinner with my family for my birthday since my sister was back from Waterloo. The waitress said she would let me get a beer but I said NO! I need to get it when I'm officially 19! If I don't buy alcohol on June 30th since its a weekday, I'll get some for sure on July 3rd at UFC 116.

The Xbox Generation

The Original Xbox. Super bulky, super annoying to move around. It was first designed as a console aimed towards adults. Oh how I miss the white and black buttons.... I remember the white button was to speak on Xbox live. If you had small hands, that was pretty much impossible unless you had 3 hands. The first controllers were not greatly designed. And the console was more like a brick than a box.
The Xbox 360. A huge upgrade from the original Xbox. The clean white look made it look awesome. The Xbox button in the middle of the controller was a great addition. Before the console came out I kept wondering what the middle button would be able to do. I kept telling myself "maybe its the ultimate attack button where you can only press it when you get the nuke in Modern Warfare!"The Xbox Elite. The console reformatted to end the deadly "Red Ring" curse all Xbox owners are afraid to see. The 120gb harddrive made it much easier to save multiple games without the concern for harddrive space. You can debate whether the white or black looked better but in my opinion they both look sharp.Some call it the Slim, some call it the stealthbox, and other just call it the "new" xbox 360. What ever you call it, its another upgrade. Super quiet with only 1 fan. I can finally hear myself swear on Modern Warfare! I like the nice chrome touch just because I like shinny things. 250gb harddrive. I probably don't need that much space but its always nice to have. It costs just $299 so its the same as the Elite before.

-

The Xbox systems pretty much brought me up as a kid. I would play it for hours and it is probably the reason why I did terrible in grade school. I love it.
