Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Year of the shoot style I guess and I'm all hear for it. There will be 3 (THREE) AMBITION tournaments this year and 2 BLOODSPORTs. In the grand scheme that isn't a lot but it is a huge step in the right direction. Not sure the inspiration for multiple AMBITIONs but Josh Barnett attaching his name to Bloodsport certainly doesn't hurt, as a former UFC champion and a truly unique performer.

BLOODSPORT 2 so far has the makings of another banger. Not sure how Mox will work in that environment (I saw clips of him working that style-ish against Killer Kross I think but hard to get a real gauge). Probably the biggest match you could book for an event like this in the states. The roster is filling up nicely with Dickinson, JR Kratos (so happy they are having him return, he kicks butt), and Anthony Henry (think he's going to turn some heads with his performance if given the right opportunity). Secretly hoping Garrini gets announced for this with a REAL match. He's been given a tough shake the past two BLOODSPORT events. I like KTB but he isn't designed for this style. And the Phil Baroni match was a total nothingburger.

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

Henry got exposed as a "fighter" in his match vs Ruas at the EVOLVE Anniversary show, which was basically worked shoot style the whole way. Ruas' experience completely overwhelmed him and he just honestly, got wrecked the whole match, couldn't keep up. I admit, I don't care for Henry, but this was like total "I do MMA training, bro" guy getting schooled by a BJJ savant and then some. That's kind of why I thought it was really good, though.

That stated, Henry is good at getting the crap kicked out of him. If he eases up on the overly intense Davey Richards type of geek, and plays more into his heart/toughness, he'll fare better. The stated Ruas match, and match vs Roderick Strong from EVOLVE 129 have far and away been the best matches I've seen from him & both of those he was abused from start to finish.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.

BLOODSPORT IS FILTHY.



Turns out Wentz is a former MMA fighter, which blows my mind a little.

Davey going to fuck someone up, and I'm here for it

Re: Official Indy DVD Discussion Thread

If I end up watching him get rekt at Bloodsport, I'll be quite happy, won't hide it. That piece of garbage.

Watching Gulak vs Kush III get made before my eyes yesterday in a storm of posts was kind of surreal. I welcome more of this.
