I have been thinking about getting a punching bag for some time now. I wasn't sure what kind I should get back after some reading I think I am gonna get a stand up one. I live in a condo so there is no room to get a hanging bag. If you are considering getting one make sure you do some research first on punching bags because there really is a lot of different bags you can get. Some even use water, some are for indoor some are for outdoor. I am not sure if I want to get any boxing gloves or just use the little mma style gloves for this, but I am definitely going to get a punching bag real soon.

Yo UFC FANS: Scroll down below this post for the UFC Anderson Silva vs James Irvin Results...
Well a lot of people didnt realize that tonight was also the Affliction Banned event put on by Afflication aka Randy Couture and Donald Trump - that's right the trumpster w00t - anyhoo Fedor Emelianenko fought Tim Sylvia in the main event and he destroyed him in less then a minute - basically striked him onto the ground then took his back and choked him - but the fight was over from the strikes really.
We saw the return of one of my favorite fighters from the past - Vitor Belfort. I was really hoping he was gonna win - frank trigg was saying how this is a new vitor etc etc so he isnt going to go nuts like he did back when he was young in the UFC and smoked Wanderlei Silva. Fight started out slow then wammo vitor nailed terry martin with a vicious flying knee - then hit him with an uppercut then a straight left hand and put him through the ropes - lol pwnage.
Also was nice to see Josh Barnett be victorious and bring some flair to the event with his samarai like spirit.
Anyways here are the offical results:
Fedor Emelianenko defeats Tim Sylvia via submission (rear naked choke) in round one
Arlovski defeats Rothwell via technical knockout (strikes) in round three
Josh Barnett defeats Pedro Rizzo via knockout in round two
Babalu Sobral defeats Mike Whitehead via Unanimous Decision
Matt Lindland defeats Fabio Nascimento via Unanimous Decision
Paul Buentello defeats Gary Goodridge via unanimous decision
Vitor Belfort defeats Terry Martin via TKO (Strikes) Round 2
Mark Hominick defeats Savant Young via Submission (Armbar) Round 2
Rogerio Nogueria defeats Edwin DeWees via TKO (Strikes) Round 1
Mike Pyle defeats JJ Ambrose via Submission (Rear Naked Choke) Round 1
All in all it was a great stacked card - but it was too long with too many commercials - having megadeath playing live was cool but only if you are a fan of them which I was not lol - Big John McCarthy needs practice on his telecasting - he was so hyper he was yelling in the fighters faces when he was interviewing them. And also he kept calling Vitor Belort "Bellfert"... lol dude its BELL FOUR the T is silent - I guess he didnt get the memo.
Also it was hella cheesy when they were announcing all the celebs in attendance instead of just panning to them etc - they only panned to like 2-3 people like tito ortiz and jenna. The funniest part though was when they panned to Donald Trump and behind him to the left was Michael Madsen and they never mentioned him lol. He has been in about 100 movies lol like Kill Bill and Resevoir Dogs etc etc.

Well as everyone predicted, Anderson the spider Silva defeated James Sandman Irvin. What poeople didn't expect was for Silva to beat him so fast and so bad. LOL does Anderson Silva ever get hit?? Sandman threw a kick, Silva catches it with his left hand and punches him with his right - BAM - that basically ended it - Sandman fell back on his butt, Silva pounced on him, threw a few strikes, 2 of them got through and then ref stopped it - he was done. Will he hold both belts eventually? Dan Henderson style?
Anyways here are the official results:
-Anderson Silva def. James Irvin by KO at 1:01, R1
-Brandon Vera def. Reese Andy by unanimous decison at 5:00, R3
-Frankie Edgar def. Hermes Franca by unanimous decision at 5:00, R3
-Cain Velasquez def. Jake O'Brien by TKO at 2:02, R1
-Kevin Burns def. Anthony Johnson by TKO at 3:35, R3
-C.B. Dollaway def. Jesse Taylor by submission (peruvian neck tie) at 3:58, R1
-Tim Credeur def. Cale Yarbrough by TKO at 1:54, R1
-Rory Markham def. Brodie Farber by KO at 1:47, R1
-Nate Loughran def. Johnny Rees by submission (triangle choke) at 4:21, R1
-Brad Blackburn def. James Gaboo by TKO (strikes) at 2:29, R2
-Shannon Gugerty def. Dale Hartt by submission (rear naked choke) at 3:33, R1

Soooo tomorrow night live on SpikeTV is the fight between Anderson Silva and James Irvin. I think that Silva is going to win. It was interesting to hear Irvin say the only advantage he had was that he was bigger and stronger... so you are saying he is better then you in striking, wrestling and jujitsu? hmm ok well then the Sandman is in big trouble. I forsee a second round KO by silva... why 2nd round because I think he will almost get knocked out by the end of the first round but then be saved by the bell only to be destroyed in the opening few seconds of round two - let's see if I am right :)

Well I haven't updated this blog in a while so I think I will start doing that again. Quinton Rampage Jackson was arrested today for being in a car chase with police. Apparently he was driving in his Rampage truck which is a big pickup truck that is lifted with nice fat tires and is covered in Toyo Tires branding because he just did a deal with them. So he gets pulled over for driving with a flat tire - but instead of stopping - he decides to keep driving.. no big deal right? wrong. He drives on the wrong side of the road, almost hits pedestrians, and even drives on the sidewalk. Eventually he pulls over where he is arrested at gunpoint. I am not sure what he was thinking - I mean he wasnt going to get away and his picture is on the side of his truck. Perhaps there was drugs involved or perhaps he has just been punched in the head one too many times :/ either way he is probably looking at least 2 years in prison. I wonder how many fights he will get into in there O_o btw hi Jimmmy ;)
