UFC 141: JIMY HETTES SERVES PHAM SOME JUDO PIE.
Hey, grappler. It's New Years Eve. Almost 2012. That means a lot of things, but, to me, it means the academy is closed and there is no no Jiu Jitsu today. It blows, but we deal.
Last night, I stayed in and paid full freight for my own private viewing of UFC 141. I think I was feeling rich because I saved so much money on my cell phone bill [this is a joke].
There was little grappling to be seen, with one kickass exception: Jimy "I'm Going to Repeatedly Judo Throw You" Hettes. Despite missing the second "m" in his name, the dude killed it last night crushing Nam Pham with many takedowns and a lot of smashing (for a unanimous decison; Pham is a rock). I'm not a Judo expert, but from my minimal knowledge, he employed Uchi Mata, O Soto Gari and Harai Goshi to get Pham to the ground throughout the fight (correct me, if I'm wrong). In interviews after the fight he revealed he's still a BJJ purple belt and Judo brown belt. But, last night he night he gave poor Nam a black belt butt kicking.
Go find an illegal feed or, better yet, pay Zuffa the full amount like I did (and be a baller) and watch this one. For now, check out some of the grappling funtime images.
