    Awesome man, do you have your questions all set up already?

    Yves is one awesome fighter, I hate all the people who dogged on him on Sherdog, it really pisses me off how easily people can just put down a fighter when they lose.

    Can't wait for the interview :noes::noes:

    Not yet, I'll be talking to the shows producer tonight and working out all the ideas we have.

    And I agree, Yves is awesome, he just got caught, plain and simple. I hate how fair-weather most MMA fans are.

    I think one of the show cohosts actually asked him on myspace, hah.

    The producer emailed me and told me to setup the interview today. This will be the first interview I've done. I'm pretty nervous and just a bit star-struck :noes:

    I personally think he didn't feel threatened by the triangle until hominick tripped him and was able to secure it. Until that point it seemed pretty loose.

    He must have been because Edwards had way more than enough time to free himself out of that "triangle."

    It's not uncommon at all to hang out in a poor triangle... although it will bite you from time to time.

    Not just the punch to the liver but also the knee to the liver, that was a HARD knee. I cringed whenever I see that knee hitting the liver.

    I mean jesus, I'm surprised he didn't just fall right there, a lot of the people will criticize him saying that "Oh I could've gotten outa that triangle" or "wtf is Yves doing, he's just laying there", WELL MAYBE ITS CAUSE HE TOOK 2-3 HARD SHOTS TO THE LIVER!!!!

    grrr, really gets to me how little people know but can easily put down a fighter.

    Couldn't agree with this more, not just bc he's fom Tx either, the guy is pretty damned cool, and I agree with the fair weather stuff. How can u just turn on a guy when u can see they're givin it their all. Can we get a sneak preview of the interview when you do get things rolling d0nk3ypunch ?

    I record the audio and send it to the shows producer, he generally has it online a few hours after that, I'll post when its up.

    He's the American who made his pride debut at last year's (september or august) bushido right?


    I only saw the one fight but he looked to be on top of his game.
