Jim Ross post-UFC 124 Thoughts

December 12, 2010

Good Ol’ Jim Ross waxes about UFC 124 and more in his latest blog post. Here’s an excerpt from the insightful one and only true voice of the WWE:

Jim Ross on GSP vs. The Kos, UFC 124 and more

GSP’s other ESPN gig is after the break.

As I say all the time, I highly encourage you to take a trip over to Jim Ross’ website, order some BBQ sauce and read his amazing blog. In his latest blog post, Good Ol’ Jim Ross gives his usual great insight on more than a few topics. He compares Georges St-Pierre to Ric Flair, talks a little UFC 124 and gives props to Jack Swagger and Kofi Kingston. Here’s an excerpt:

Lesnar vs. Mir 3

Mir hung Lesnar’s first loss on Brock to which the Minnesotan avenged evening their personal score at 1-1. Why not have the ‘rubber match?’ No one seemed to mind a ‘rubber match’ between BJ Penn and Matt Hughes recently even though the ending came in a shockingly abrupt manner.
