Grand Prix Tournament Quarterfinals

Ricardo Duenas vs. Michael McDonald. Your basic 1st round mismatch. McDonald went for the high kick right away. The 1st didn't get up high enough and Duenas blocked it, but the 2nd put Duenas down.

Tony Gregory vs. Petr Vondracek. Pretty wild match. It seemed like whoever was the agressor was overwhelming their opponent. The thing is, the aggressor was changing about every 10 seconds. Good fight.

Pavel Majer vs. Adam Watt. I liked what Watt did here. Majer was stronger, but Watt kept him off balance and kept him from turning it into a brawl. It wasn't very exciting, but I appreciated how Watt tried to make up for being overmatched physically.

Andrew Thomson vs. Errol Parris. Parris focused on combinations, and was always able to follow up when he landed a good shot.

Super Fight: Ernesto Hoost vs. Jan "The Giant" Nortje. Hoost mainly feels his opponent out in R1 and Nortje took advantage of Hoost's initial non aggression. He tried to use his big reach advantage. Hoost would block and try to get inside, but Nortje kept punching so it was hard for Hoost to transition from blocking to offense. Hoost soon began mixing it up, which I doubt was his strategy. Nortje's big problem is he doesn't have much stamina. Nortje barely kicks, and by the middle of R2 his punches were getting slow. Hoost would avoid a few then hit Nortje with a combination. Nortje was letting Hoost know that he didn't have the power to hurt him, but that missed the point that at best Nortje was going to take "weak" punches for 3 1/2 rounds en route to another loss. Interesting fight, but not one of Hoost's better ones.

Grand Prix Tournament Semifinals

Michael McDonald vs. Tony Gregory. Gregory was much more patient and strategic here. He used his height and reach advantage. He scored from the outside, and kept McDonald from scoring in the inside. When McDonald got inside, he could lock McDonald's head up and go for knees. McDonald is the better and more powerful fighter, but even if he tended to be more aggressive, Gregory kept him from getting off and/or landing. I thought McDonald won R3 because Gregory was coasting home to victory, but I have no idea how the judges came up with this scoring. One judge didn't even give Gregory a single round, which is just nutty.

Pavel Majer vs. Errol Parris. Majer is a big unskilled brawler. His whole game is getting you against the ropes and using his size. Parris should have stuck and moved more instead of letting Majer get him near the ropes. He was the only one that got some good shots in, especially body punches, but he let Majer control to much of the fight. I thought this was close to an even fight, but again one judge had it 30-27.5.

Super Fight: Stefan Leko vs. Remy Bonjasky. Leko was looking pretty one-dimensional here. His boxing is excellent, but Bonjasky had some boxing skill in addition to good knees and some kicking. Leko was the much smarter fighter though. He had Bonjasky fighting his fight rather than using his size advantage or taking advantage of being more equally skilled. Both guys were active, but neither were getting good shots in as they kind of negated each other.

K-1 vs. PRIDE Super Fight: Mike Bernardo vs. Gary Goodridge. This was a shady joke of a fight. Goodridge was an out of control roid rage brawler. He was wildly pressuring Bernardo. Bernardo slipped and Goodridge tried to level him when he was down, but lucky for Bernardo he even screwed that up and the ref got in there quick enough to save him from the second blow. Huge boos. Soon after there was this questionable finish where Bernardo went down hard from a punch to the shoulder blade of all places. Bernardo got up looking like he rightfully wasn't even hurt, but ref Nobuaki Kakuda stopped the fight.

Grand Prix Tournament Final: Michael McDonald vs. Pavel Majer. McDonald was up against a much taller fighter again. By no means did he dominate this fight, but he was the smarter more diverse fighter. McDonald obviously noticed that Majer's attacks are slow and he's not a great defender, especially when he's going on offense. His game is to jump in with a punch or a knee when you are backed into or near the ropes. He did this to McDonald a few times, then McDonald timed it and Majer jumped right into a front kick.
