So ... World Series of Fighting (WSOF) 4 happened ...

So World Series of Fighting 4 (WSOF) happened last night (Aug. 10, 2013) at Citizens Business Center Arena in Ontario, California. It was definitely a thing that I and a bunch of other people watched.

If we're being honest with each other, it wasn't a good night of fights. It was a parody of everything that I love about mixed martial arts (MMA). The commentary team of Todd Harris and Bas Rutten is awful. Seriously, can someone remind me of a time when Bas actually cared about the sport?

Anyway, here's some of my thoughts about the fights.

You need to call Tyrone

Look, last night wasn't a great night for Tyrone Spong. It wasn't an awful performance, but it definitely wasn't what everyone expected. I'm chalking it up to two things. The first is that his opponent just refused to be a warm body just there to collect a paycheck. The second is that he already has a kickboxing bout booked and didn't want to have any injuries. But, it wasn't just the fight. For some reason they gave Spong a free Boost Mobile phone for winning.

Sorry man.

Marlon Moraes is violence

So this will be a theme throughout his career. Marlon Moraes is possibly one of the most violent fighters I've seen in recent history. Those leg kicks were so brutal that I was surprised his opponent didn't bounce around on one foot by the end of the fight. WSOF better hope he's under contract for a long time because he's the kind of fighter who would fit in great in the UFC.

Dave Huckaba better hope he gets paid

Dear Dave,

Never beat up your boss. Especially in his retirement bout. That's not what you were supposed to do.

-Matt Roth

Youuuuuuur Fiiiiiiiiiiiireeeed!!!

Lew Polley has gotta look for a job. He was fired after showing up to weigh ins 32 pounds over the Light Heavyweight limit. He's SO FAT!

Additional Thoughts

  • Jason McCoy and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. Seriously, what a terrible night.
  • Nick Newell is definitely a good fighter. But, having the member from the Wounded Warrior foundation show up to present a flag seemed super disingenuous. Would they have done the same had Keon Caldwell been victorious?
  • The rest of the card wasn't good either. I'm really not sure why I spent five hours of my life watching it. WOOF.
