Reflections on Ufc 114
Posted: May 31, 2010
I just wanted to thank everyone who attended our UFC event this past Saturday. It was a packed house, and we enjoyed having you all there. The fights were all pretty good, with the exception of the main event.
The main event just didn’t live up to the hype. Typically guys that don’t like each other usually want to hurt each other. In this instance, it seemed like both guys were more concerned with not losing. This tentative approach resulted in a pretty sad match.
I don’t understand why an MMA fight has to be a title fight to go 5 rounds. In boxing the duration of the main event is not limited in the same way. In this instance, the short duration was a blessing, but in most cases it is not.
Well I guess all the fights can’t be great, but most of them were very enjoyable. The fighters showed a lot of respect, and I think it was a good night for the UFC.
On a more personal note, it was nice to see you all in a social setting. We saw many current students, and also many students that we haven’t seen in a while. It was really great to see you all again.
All-in-all it was a pretty good night, and I’d like to thank everyone that attended.
