Ultimate Fight Night IV

November 7th, 2006

I’ll probably watch it on Saturday, I’ve been watching the UFC on Spike almost every Thursday night. I’ve watched a lot of TV while I’ve been in Deep Bay. I’ll have to see about adding a TV category to my blog, so far I’ve resisted…

I’m of course curious what my old MBA classmate Gary Lau thinks, he was a mixed martial arts fan.

There are several other fight promotions. When I was in Japan I watched K1 and wanted to see a live event but I ran out of time and money. Nagoya hosted one but by the time I found out it was too late, one of my students went. Pride ran its first big event in Las Vegas I recently learned.

I’ll be cheering for Matt Sera and the Canadian Patrick Cote if anyone cares.

I noticed a fighting category on Slam! Sports alphabetically before hockey even. This implies it is becoming more mainstream at least online. You also see celebrities in the audience sometimes.


  • The Finale was too long and the Sera fight was not that exciting. I think the best fight was between the Dane and the Brazilian though the oddest ending was in the Smith vs. Sell tango.

    Patrick Cote lost quickly, I think Lutters might have been the best fighter on the entire show after watching him beat most everyone put in front of him of late. That said Anderson Silva hits hard and is on a roll of his own.

  • I read that George St. Pierre beat Matt Hughes. That is good news for fight fans but bad news for Matt Sera. George St. Pierre is taller than Hughes and much taller than Sera. To some extent Matt Sera is used to this, but I predict he eats a lot of punches and kicks on his way to the clinch. I also think unless he pulls the upset he will drop down a weight class now that there is a championship belt at 155 or whatever. He will not be at such a reach disadvatage in the lowest weight class.
