Belak with the left jersey/face punch and a nicely timed switch....
i give this one a draw.......nothing landed at all except maybe one at the end by belak......alot of arm shots......i wish some of those would have landed.....but since they didnt it wasnt much of a fight.....but i give them both an a for effort at least
nobody really landed anything, jersey rinkling isnt punching for anyone who thinks that those "jabs" by Belak did anything he tried to pull him off balance. draw
almost nothin landed.a draw
Decent showing for Rupp to hang with Belak. Nothing really signifigant landed throughout however. Maybe a slight edge to Belak for being in more control... Nope, I'll go DRAW.
wildfan4eva what are u like 10,belak hardly made rupp look like his bitch u r an idiot i can tell with out even knowin u, u r an asshole,clearly a draw and rupp did land a good right nobody with clear win when belak switched did not do no damage rupp lost his balance and went down.
Rupp with one of the worst showings of anyone this year.did not land anything and lost his balance after a jab.Belak winner by default.
Not much at all landed. Win for Belak and respectable in match for not throwing that shot with Rupp down on the ice.
never cared much for the belak/janssen jersey-jab style fighting, in fact i think it's sh!t. oh well, win belak anyway.
EDGE goes to Belak for landing the only punches.
Is it just me, or has Belak has been quietly and suprisingly winning all year against seemingly tougher opposition? Hmmmm.
Belak won by jersey jabs and then making the switch. Close fight with Belak getting the win.
Belak landed with his sweater jabs and connected with the one left hand. Most of Rupps shots(if not all) came up short. Win for Belak who has had a rebirth in Nashville.
Belak wins on the reach advantage. He lands more but they won't faze Rupp much as they seem to graze him a bit.. Belak gets a takedown in the end and pretty much controlled the fight. Rupp gives it a whirl but just can't reach or he'd have gotten an edge with as hard as he was throwin'.
win belak,rupp sucks as a fighter.he fights alot but doesn't do much he clinches and holds,then hugs.its ok in some fights but almost all of them.he maybe be a heavy weight but not a very good one.he wins by keeping guys at distance but never lands any punches
good restraint by belak once rupp was on the floor. Thats gotta be tough after going at it with someone. not much landed in this though.
Belak lands maybe one not an exciting fight.
a pretty weak fight, but the edge goes to Belak. no big punches actually landed, just a lot of big swings. give credit to Belak for showing class and not throwing that last punch he wound up for. Mike Rupp has been fighting really well this season, but he couldn't pull this one off.
Rupp still needs his special ed teacher to tie his skates for him. how is he supposed to win a fight? Useless
Win for Belak,,the jersey jabs gave him the edge.
Classy of Belak not to hit Rupp when he was down.
Belak didn't land any haymakers, but he did make Rupp his bitzch in this one! He is right up there with Godard as far as jersey jabs go, he always gives my boy (Boogy) a run for his money. I give Belak allot of credit, very underrated in my opinion. Why does it seem as if nobody want's to give this guy credit? He has beaten some good fighters! 12/23/06 he beat Brashear, 12/16/06 he beat Orr. 1/11/07 he beat Andrew Peters. 3/20/07 he beat Cam Janssen. 12/27/04 he beat Godard. 3/20/04 he beat Peter Worrell. He beat Boogaard twice in 2008. 10/20/07 he beat David Koci. 11/29/07 he beat Eric Boulton.1/9/08 he beat George Parros. This guy is allot tougher than most in the NHL and he has actually beat some of these mentioned players more than once! Give him some props for christ sake Cherndig ----Godard owns boogy...ok. He beat Boogaard one time, and for the most part Boogaard was actually winning the fight until the end. Boogaard has statistically won every other fight they have been in; which is three...1/3/07..boogaard won,..1/9/07 was a win for godard...1/26/07 was a win for boogaard,,,and finally 1/22/07..very narrow and weak ..but yet another win for boogaard since he lands on top and throws the only little connecting punch! So there you have it moron..boogaards record vs godard is 3-1...if being optimistic 2-1-1..in favor of Derek Boogaard. You may pull your head out of your azz now Boogy hater. What is wrong with people on this site,,like you bruise your butt? Nothing landed? Did you not see Belak land like 10 straight jersey jabs...oh i am sure those are nothing in your book huh..i am sure your puzzy azz would be knocked out by just one of them! Wow, maybe rating female soccer fights is more up your alley Stevie Wonder. Good luck with that.
belak with the win. rupp vastly improved this year but just not in this fight. belak highly underated, many other teams could have improved their enforcing by picking this guy off waivers but didnt for some reason.
Belak with the edge here....where are you njteech? you only show up when your boys do well in a fight...LOSER
Slight edge Belak
rupp has turned into a reliable tuff guy. belak gets a slight edge based on jersy jabs otherwise nothing landed and could have been a draw. also would like to see belak drop em more!
chico what are you watching Belak end of story!
slight edge to belak...joeye4 u must be a huge belak fan to be pumpin him up that much..he is not close to bein one of the top fighters in the league...definatly not top 10, maybe top 15, but at least top 20, but definatly not one of the top fighters!
If anything slight edge to Belak
Belak is a good fighter by NHL heavyweight standards... He is always willing to go. I really dont like him for what he did to Parros tho, the knee to trip him was pretty shady... Parros lost because of that (which he missed a couple games for that knee as well). Belak with the win here for the jabs and top position.
Belak dominated the fight... but didn't really land any good shots.
I give Belak a small edge and the win. Chico had it right when he said those so called "jersey jabs" were mostly just "push and pulls".........and overall "I don't know if any of those really landed, Doc". Good to see Belak respect the code and not hit Rupp when he was down. Not a great fight, gave it a 5.
Belak landed more...at least 6 left jabs...Rupp didn't land a thing...Win Belak
Good point with the "Jersey Jabs", but I still gave the fight to Belak.
Belak Wins by a punch or two
Good matchup with Wade Belak taking the win. Belak is easily top 3 in the NHL right now.
slight edge Belak
Belak is impressive and underrated. Top 5 fighter IMO.
Belak is a big ugly dude at ice level, probably better off left alone. Doesn't play very well either but is a super heavy weight!
I kind of figured this would happen! Rupp hasnt really taken on a top heavyweight! He does here, and it shows! He still hung in there, but still room for improvement! Win to my man Belak!
Belak is one of the top fighters in the league this year. He has brought his fight game to the highest level. Big, great balance and bombs for punches. Rupp did as well as anyone could but clearly lost.
Belak get the easy win.
Belak with the win on points , what a smart fighter, switching up huh !.reminds me of Darron Langdon and the way he used to fight , Smart,not all abount anger .
Belak is a hell of a fighter he controlled the pace so I give him the victory.
Belak is fighting great, right now. He is in his prime. It took him awhile to get here but I would definately call him a top heavyweight now - not THE top heavyweight - but a bona fide for sure. He has a stunner jersey-jab that is working well for him - it is like a taser to the face right now. Belak for president!
Belak is getting better. Not like the punching bag in T.O. Nice switch up. Belak wins on a sweet punch.
belak gets the win in this fight.
Good tilt. Rupp made a good showing for himself, but Belak abused him with the jersey jab. That announcer is funny... "trying to pull the other player off balance." Looked to me like it was about separating the other player from his teeth.
Rupp has never beaten anyone. He hasnt taken on the super heavies. Chico Resch is the worst announcer in the league and the biggest homer. I guess because "Marty, Marty Marty" is out, he s found a new a*s to kiss.
I figured Belak would whip Rupp's ass but it was mostly even. I say draw and a good showing for Rupp, Belak has been on a bit of a roll as of late.
Belak with the win with the nice takedown
Switching to the left made the difference. Belak wins.
Not very exciting. Rupp had been looking-good in his last few fights, but showed nothing here,.....Belak controlled his man, kept him at a distance and off balance, but didn't land anything significant, either. Edge Belak.
Belak was more active, the jersey shots give him the win. Wildfan4eva Godard owns Boogy.
win belak..landin 2or 3 jersey jabs...then goin southie & gettin a good 1 in....this got a 5
Smart switch by Belak- lands the best shot. Rupp kept his distance and lands nothing. Win Belak.
