    Leben on setanta news now, bispig being interviewed on phone

    I really doubt that Redz would be showing it, it's on a Saturday night


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,467 ✭✭✭shenanigans1982


    Whats the place beside the cinema on Parnell St?...some Australian themed place...From what I can remember they show matches on Saturday...might have the ppv on too.

    Could I start a separate thread on the subject of venues to watch? I could do it next week, just not sure if it's considered as spamming the forum or not.

    Lads, one of the lads pulled out yesterday so I've a spare ticket for UFC 89, its £70 afair (will check when I get home later).

    Going for face value if anyone is interested.

    It's called the Woolshed. I don't know if they show MMA or not though.

    Hi im based in Limerick also and would love to watch the fights down in a pub. Could you let me know also :D cheers!

    I was always excited by the Leben Bisping match up, even though I am not a big fan of either fighter. This fight has potential for fireworks. Check out the pics below of both fighters, I have never seen them in such great condition.

    Bisping has a few video blogs on his site, www.bispingtv.com
    Said he ran into Leben and he was looking trim!


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,594 ✭✭✭Fozzy


    The Countdown show was really good. Definitely one of their better ones. Leben came out of it looking like a nice guy

    Would any of ye fine gentlemen know of anywhere in Cork city that is showing it, I doubt it seeing as how its a saturday night but thought it was worth a shot anyway, been trying to sort out setanta all week but don't reckon I'll get it in time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,594 ✭✭✭Fozzy


    It looks like Jardine is going to be fighting at a much heavier weight than Vera. That could swing it


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 79 ✭✭hypnosisdublin


    I think Bisping will fight a smart fight and win by UD. I'd really like to see Leben win by KO though.

    I fancy Jardine to outwork Vera - that'll be an absolute war - great clash of fancy vs awkward style


  • Registered Users Posts: 966 ✭✭✭RedRaven


    Paul Taylor was robbed!!! Landed cleaner strikes, greater variety of strikes..finished the fight stronger.


  • Registered Users Posts: 863 ✭✭✭bjj-fighter


    Vera won that fight!what the hell


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 24,878 ✭✭✭✭arybvtcw0eolkf


    I was glad to see Jardine say something about the crowd boo'ing, it was starting to get me pissed off too. I hope the same doesn't happen here in Ireland.

    Bisping did what he had to do, didn't take any silly chances and risk having his arse handed to him on a plate. Win, game over.


  • Registered Users Posts: 966 ✭✭✭RedRaven


    BJJ

    I agree he landed some really nice strikes.

    I have to say I really like the way MMA fighters have started to use elbows in stand up and there were some really nice clean body kicks. Its obvious that each gym has a Muay Thai coach you can see it a mile away.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,326 ✭✭✭MartyMcFly84


    yeah def could see the muay thai influence, leben going for the inside leg kick n bisping with the quick kick body shots n standing elbow strikes (niceeee). leban was for sure the aggressor but bisping played to his game plan with crisp straight shots to set up kicks. i agree with the decision. well i had a few beers but from what i can remember he had the 1st n 3rd round fo sho:)

    I thought Leben won, I'll have to watch it again I suppose on the TV.

    the booing was a bit sad to hear, a lot of bisping bandwagoners there who didn't really know much about MMA brough the football attitude with them.

    I didnt think that decision could have been more clear cut. lebens face was an absolute mess while Bisping was unscathed.


    Am I the only one who thought Vera was robbed? Landed much more precise strikes and busting Jardine open from the bottom and had a nice kimura attempt which was not very close, kept Jardine defending on top.

    You must have been watching a different fight or be one of those bandwagoner types cos it was a clear win for Bisping :D

    I'm with you. I thought Vera had done enough to get the decision. Poor Vera went from finishing people off in dramatic style to something altogether less than that.

    Then again, i have a lot of respect for Jardine, he is a good fighter who is awkward to fight.

    Other than this I think i got all my calls right on this one, except for Baron.
