After last week, Brock called all of his fighters chicken shit, criticizing their fighting spirit in the Octagon. He said he wanted someone to ‘wow’ him. This week’s fight featured Clay vs Mick. Mick (from England) announced that there was no way he would lose this fight as he didn’t want to go home to his little girl having failed. Predictably, he lost. Clay looked decent in the first round but looked completely exhausted and gassed out in the second. It was Mick’s lack of aggression that lost him the fight. Had Mick been more aggressive in the second round where he clearly had more stamina than Clay, he surely would have won barring a judging catastrophe. Mick appeared tentative and afraid to move forward.
On another note, Strikeforce, since being purchased by Zuffa, is no longer permitted to have amateur fights. Shame. Strikeforce’s amateur fights were often more entertaining than The Ultimate Fighter professional bouts.
