Rupp is not much of a fighter, he's just big. He won't last long in fights which is why he ended it and took Orr down. Orr usually has long fights if there's a willing combatant but you could see Rupp knew he had nothing left and thought he'd kick out Orr's legs to save face.

Rupp had an advantage, however for winning a fight i dont know why Rupp hugged him for a takedown.And whoever made that comment below obviously doesn't watch NJ/NY Hockey. Someone stated something along the lines " That's why Orr has been ducking Rupp " Well if you wanna go back to last season when Orr & Rupp fought at MSG it ended with Orr putting Rupp down, not with a takedown but with a straight right hand. Orr doesn't duck anyone.

Rupp win period.

Posted by Gunslinger on December 13, 2008 at 07:02 AM

Did'nt think this would happen! Orr never got locked in and Rupp took advantage in easily winning this fight. Rupp is a tough customer but beating Orr?Maybe pigs can fly.

Posted by blackgoldfan on December 13, 2008 at 09:03 PM

colton orr is a crap shoot. the fights i think hes gonna lose he either wins or surprises enuff for a draw. but then on the other hand we get fights that i think he should win like this one and he gets completly and utterly emmbarrased.(no offense rupp)

Posted by shrk33 on December 13, 2008 at 05:10 PM

Rupp easily gets the win over Orr. Orr took some solid shots from Rupp before they tangle and hit the ice.

Posted by dropkick25 on December 13, 2008 at 11:16 PM

Rupp took this one ,landed some solid ones,not much damage though.Orr struggles with the tall guys with the long reach.

Posted by Riomouse911 on December 13, 2008 at 04:14 PM

Orr landed zero, took 6 straight off the bean. Orr voter is a choad.

Posted by Jellyczar on December 13, 2008 at 12:37 AM

Rupp too many good head shots on Orr

Posted by jealeman on December 13, 2008 at 12:51 AM

I love a good Ranger beat down...

Posted by tnaveler on December 13, 2008 at 02:54 PM

Good fight, Hey kitcarnut I don't like the devils, however a win is a win and Rupp won. It's Rangers fans that are Stupid and only support there team when they win. I have seen the way NY treats there team when there struggling and it ain't pretty.

Posted by tpr1960 on December 13, 2008 at 09:14 PM

Rupp with the W over Colton {Donald Brashears personal punching bag} Orr . Only the Rangers can make the Devils look like tough guys . Chuck and duck Rupp finally wins one . Oh and the New York assholes who voted for Orr need to actually learn how to skate . Imissbarnabysass should have his memborship revoked . According to him the lame ass Rangers have not lost a fight all year , what a joke , they don't intimidate a pee wee team .Rangers still suck .

Posted by staceyb on December 13, 2008 at 06:38 AM

Orr has had better fights--Rupp really got him with a couple of rights. After the Rangers knotted the score 5-5, their defense collapsed. The Devils with a big win on home ice.

Posted by ort2lax on January 30, 2009 at 10:25 AM

Good fight.... Rupp is the winner

Posted by Thunder Cat 2 on December 12, 2008 at 11:48 PM

good fight . Win for rupp those over rights connected.

Posted by scooter231 on December 13, 2008 at 09:26 PM

Easy win for Rupp. Orr got outhandled.

Posted by Wods317 on December 14, 2008 at 12:04 AM

Who voted for a draw or even Orr? I am a die hard Ranger fan and even I know Orr who is a really good fighter got dominated by Rupp.

Posted by dlbishop2213 on December 12, 2008 at 10:58 PM

Rupp whooped em half way through... Love Orr but eek

Posted by Anders 9 on January 25, 2009 at 10:03 PM

Rupp used his size to his advantage in this one. Orr couldn't quite put anything together; he was strong but didn't really find his target. Rupp was able to control the fight and got in a couple solid shots.

Posted by pvdrummer2000 on February 09, 2013 at 12:43 AM

Rupp was landing some great punches. I loved this fight until Rupp took Orr down. I give Rupp the win, but he should have fought til the end instead of just wrestling Orr to the ground. Chump move.

Posted by Scott4 on December 13, 2008 at 04:25 PM

Big win for Rupp against very skilled fighter! Michael needs to drop his mitts often :). To kitcarnut: You're d1ck ! ! ! ! You tell a big bullsh1t ! We won 3 SC in last 13 years..haha..and last 60 years one "hard paid" SC..go f*ck yourself!

Posted by joeye4 on December 14, 2008 at 09:54 AM

Rupp clearly won but I expect that his reach advantage was the key. Orr could not really get going with Rupp holding him off and apparently got frustrated and tried an unfortunate move to get in closer where he got bombed in the head with about three good shots. Orr is tough he did not quit then but just tumbled Rupp over. I would expect he could take Rupp with better tactics.

Posted by RykerHC on December 13, 2008 at 02:58 AM

I thought Orr would take this one, but instead Rupp ended up with a clear win. Good job beating on the Rangers.

Posted by brianreds on December 13, 2008 at 08:47 AM

shocker here. win for Rupp

Posted by DetroitIan on December 13, 2008 at 05:10 AM

Clear win for Rupp.

Posted by SirYohans on December 13, 2008 at 09:04 PM

Edge Rupp. Nothing damaging however. Weak move to end it early with a tackle.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on December 13, 2008 at 09:36 AM

Rupp with the W. Orr looked like a bobblehead there for a minute.

Posted by PA GI Joe on December 14, 2008 at 09:36 AM

Much respect for Orr willing to challenge anyone; however, Rupp was clear winner with 3 good rights that all landed. Kudos to Rupp as well, who has quietly had some great bouts this year.

Posted by TheAsianator on December 12, 2008 at 10:44 PM

Edge Rupp

Posted by Heavyweight2 on December 12, 2008 at 10:53 PM

Nice right by Rupp

Posted by Wild24 on December 12, 2008 at 10:49 PM

Rupp gets the nod

Posted by Black Ice on December 13, 2008 at 07:25 AM

Rupp with the clear win. Whoever voted for Colton Orrful must be feeling very charitable. Maybe it's the time of year... I hope Godard was watching this. I predict big Eric will best Orr next time they meet...

Posted by CBH on December 13, 2008 at 01:33 PM

King Henry the VIII (if you know what i mean) had more fight in him than Orr !! Who voted for Orr ??? Rupp with a clean Win on this one some people need to wake up!

Posted by 5fourfighten on August 08, 2010 at 08:23 PM

5-6 good right hands to Orrs head gives the win to Rupp

Posted by nstars27 on December 13, 2008 at 12:59 PM

who the hell voted for Orr???? Please throw your computer into the hudson and you probably thought Voros won too

Posted by njteech on December 13, 2008 at 08:12 AM

Orr gotta Jersey whoopin'

Posted by Formerref on December 15, 2008 at 05:11 PM

Rupp wins!!

Posted by brad houghton on December 22, 2008 at 08:23 AM

blow Orr but he is hot and cold Rupp looked great in this bout

Posted by YCCKK on December 13, 2008 at 09:08 PM

was does Orr even bother anymore?

Posted by cabsf15e on December 16, 2008 at 06:10 AM

Rupp dominates this fight, period, end of report!! I'm surprised because Colton Orr is a tough kid who can throw down with anyone. Rupp did a great job of keeping him out of "bomb" range, and was able to get 5-6 good shots to the nugget, allowing him to win this fight.

Posted by grimson on December 13, 2008 at 12:59 PM

WOW!!! Nice Fight. Rupp with the Win.

Posted by capsfloors on December 13, 2008 at 10:24 AM

Rupp with the win in this one. Orr will have plenty of chances to return the favor. About time the Devils finally beat the Rangers...up 5-1 and almost choked..only fight of the night the Devs won..Hey Black Ice...Orr has owned Godard so far in his career..go check out all the fights they have had..check out Godard getting dropped and getting a broken nose..wishfull thinking!

Posted by Juha82 on January 06, 2009 at 02:11 PM

Rupp with NARROW WIN

Posted by Boogeyman2383 on December 12, 2008 at 10:35 PM

Rupp with the win

Posted by BooSanta on December 14, 2008 at 08:08 PM

Orr seems to fair well against middle weights. Rupp is huge and from the looks of this has a right i wouldn't want to eat. He had the reach advantage and won this one handily.

Posted by oilersfansylvan on December 13, 2008 at 10:22 PM

Got that 86" arm straightened and it was over....Rupp for the V

Posted by RR20 on December 13, 2008 at 12:01 PM

it's always a good fight when it involves orr getting punched in the face. i hate both these guys rupp is a big mess, but he got the clear win here.

Posted by BAAAAANNERMAAAN on December 13, 2008 at 01:03 PM

sooo i hope everyone that thinks Orr is the next bob probert can shut it now........Orr is so over-rated. Aside from that he is buds with Avery......what a D-bag

Posted by Fight Doctor on December 13, 2008 at 01:29 PM

I will tell you anybody that says Rupp is not a fighter is crazy. Look at his fights against all heavies and hasn't lost. Draw against Goddard,Wins against Cote,Orr, killed Hollweg,ok he's not much but he has owned Orr the last 2 years and Orr is one of the best!

Posted by habsfan82 on December 12, 2008 at 10:56 PM

Wow pretty decent scrap couple big fellas

Posted by tiburon4 on December 13, 2008 at 07:46 PM

Rupp wins this one with more punches landed.

Posted by FlyerPhanatic on December 13, 2008 at 10:27 PM

Rupp landed the better shots in this one so he gets the win.

Posted by Mike_O on February 05, 2009 at 07:41 PM

Rupp has always had Orr's number. Clear win for Rupp.

Posted by Muscles on December 15, 2008 at 05:54 PM

Orr was yapping, but Rupp owned him when the gloves dropped.

Posted by smasham on December 13, 2008 at 12:03 PM

So this is way Orr's been ducking Rupp..........

Very good scrap, Rupp definitely takes it.

Posted by prorobo on December 12, 2008 at 11:13 PM

Rupp with the solid win. Great fight.

Posted by bruins rule on December 12, 2008 at 11:21 PM

rupp with a big win against a great fighter.

Posted by NJDXChekr1988 on December 18, 2008 at 10:03 AM

This one of my favorite hockey fights, and my favorite Devils game! Though not a very good fighter, but Rupp gets a chance! ...And WAY 2 GO for beating the bully Orr (aka the Juggernaut, for good reason). Rupp was pretty meticulous when fighting against good and dangerous fighters. Everytime Orr throws punhces, Rupp dodge almost all of them, and then Rupp takes him down with some heavy blows. Go Devs Go!

Posted by nycbob on December 13, 2008 at 10:46 AM

lets get one thing right, ny devils is basically a waste of a franchise. i was there 50% of the crowd were ranger fans. sooner they they ship them to vegas the better

Posted by PKisel34 on December 12, 2008 at 09:41 PM

good scrap, Rupp looked solid

Posted by hockeybo on December 14, 2008 at 09:21 AM

Orr messed with the wrong guy. He was outclassed!

Posted by redwhiteblue on December 13, 2008 at 10:40 AM

Rupp with the win. He was very happy to hug it out at the end when Orr got in close.

Posted by jcstokes on December 13, 2008 at 07:42 AM

Good scrap. Rupp is a good fighter. always was, very underrated. he has a reach like Kareem. Orr, one of the best, has a horrible reach. Not too many shots landed but those that did were by Rupp.

Posted by terrystheman on December 13, 2008 at 07:22 AM

Rupp won. Was smart to bail cause Orr would have gotten the upper hand.

Posted by bigdog2007 on December 13, 2008 at 10:02 AM

Rupp seemed too big for Orr

Posted by marinermoose38 on December 14, 2008 at 11:26 PM

Surprisingly, to me at least, this is a dominating win for Rupp. At least 2 or 3 landed hard to Orr's face..

Posted by heyohmama on December 14, 2008 at 04:56 PM

whoaaa rupp with easy win

Posted by Oil Can Henry on December 13, 2008 at 11:20 AM

Rupp looked good,...didn't need the take-down, though.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on March 18, 2009 at 03:19 PM

Orr was punch drunk at the end of this one. Win Rupp.

Posted by chad420 on December 12, 2008 at 11:34 PM

rupp with a big upset

Posted by muskokadangler on April 08, 2010 at 10:02 PM

Posted by CFG1787 on December 12, 2008 at 11:08 PM

Rupp got a nice 3 or 4 in a row in

Posted by giefs on December 13, 2008 at 05:58 PM

Rupp....plain and simple.

Posted by tim daddy on December 13, 2008 at 11:16 AM

that was closer than it might seem upon the first viewing, but rupp still gets the win.

Posted by kitcarnut on December 13, 2008 at 02:33 PM

Who ended up on top??????? Orr gets the nod ,as rupp tried to stay as far back as humanly possible.he only threw when orr slipped and sissy love taps had zero effect. boy jersey fans are stupid!

Posted by imissbarnaby36 on December 12, 2008 at 10:06 PM

decent bout, rupp with the reach but both landed ok shots draw
