Jackson's MMA lights up 'greatest card ever'


Jackson's MMA is frequently criticized by fickle fight fans for following game plans that win fights, but not the hearts of the asses in seats.

Whatever merits the charge has, or doesn't, in the interest of fairness, every single person in the sport has to acknoeldge that at what many are calling the greatest card in UFC history, several of the greatest, most exciitng fighters were from Jackson's MMA.

Jackson's MMA fighter Adlan Amagov dirty boxed T.J. Waldburger into a hospital visit.

Jackson's MMA fighter John Dodson won KO of the Night, sending Darrell Montague face first to the canvas at 4:15 of the first.

 Jackson's MMA fighter Sarah Kaufman lost to Jessica Eye in a disputed Split Decision, in a fight that saw her rally in the 3rd, scoring a knockdown. Judge Ruben Najera, who had never judged a major card before, called the thrid round for Eye. Najera also scored Tim Boetsch vs. C.B. Dollaway by 30-26 Boetsch. It is not likely Najera will ever judge a major card again. And it is certain Kaufman will continue to entertain the fans for a long time to come.

And my GOD this Diego Sanchez. Gil Melendez won the fight, but Diego Sanchez was fully half of not just the Fight of the Night, but maybe the fight of the sport.

Give credit where credit is due, in what many call the most exciting card in UFC history, Jackson's MMA fighters were lighting up the night.

Really GSP is the only fighter to consistently play it safe, but he's so dominant you can hardly blame him. Condit had one bad fight with Diaz, and squeaked by a win. Evans got boring after leaving Jacksons. Melvin Guillard had a couple lackluster fights but if you were him and getting choked out every single fight, a streak of decision wins is like a godsend. Then you've got Jones, Carwin, Cub Swanson, Condit (normally), Diego, Kaufmann and dozens of other guys/gals who bring/brought it in every fight. Knocking the entire Jacksons team just because a few of their fighters play it safe in title fights is just bitching born of envy.

Yup. I'm surprised people don't realize this yet.Still, I am glad to see him get a lot of criticism when his fighters use a cop out strategy to win instead of really coming to fight.

"Yeah, Jones looked amazing last fight.He looks worse and worse every fight.DC will annihilate him."The fighter with arguably the best streak in the sport's history def looks shitty.

There is no camp with fighters that all fight the same way and why should they? Fighters are still indviduals with indvidual strengths, backgrounds, body types, personalities, etc. Diego fights the way he does, Jones fights the way he does, GSP fights the way he does, Cowboy fights the way he does, Condit fights the way he does, Garcia fights the way he does, etc.Perhaps the camp that has had the most consistent of fighting within a camp is Chute Boxe? And maybe out of their top guys, Anderson had the most different Pele/Wand/Shogun/Ninja were all sorta similar, not exactly but sorta.

I am still not buying the DC hype. But Jackson has always had good fighters who bring it and put on exciting fights.

You know what's even worse than the myth about Jackson ruining MMA? The one about join dates giving insight into a poster's knowledge of the sport.

I think he might be able to knock Phil Davis out. And I like Phil Davis.
