You gotta love staubitz, didt back down knew what was going to happen. But hey he was in over his head each landed one. Next time maybe ivanans should take it up with shelley. after.

I thought they should have received roughing instead of fighting majors. Staubitz was overmatched by Ivanans and just hugged him. They both got a single shot in and as soon as Staubitz got a lick, he pulled Ivanans to the ice to end it. At lease he was smart enough to keep from getting creamed. Have to give the "fight" to Ivanans just because Staubitz ended it on purpose. Punches were even though.

THe body check was by far better than the fight

Posted by ParrosFan16 on March 15, 2009 at 11:33 PM

Nice hit. Ivanans is a p**sy who won't fight heavyweights anymore.

Posted by Siegelind on March 15, 2009 at 04:37 AM

Nicely executed, clean hit by Staubitz in the clip. The announcer says it best: not sure why it needed to be retaliated against but fight does indeed go to Ivanans. Ragdoll'd him, but with a mismatch like that it's like congratulating Hulk Hogan on trying to squeeze a 15 year old boy to death.

I have seen better fights , but it was ok. p.s. what does TKO mean?????????????

Posted by Clark75 on March 16, 2009 at 07:16 PM

Loved seeing Johnston get smoked! Hate that kid.

Posted by Poop Jack Pappy on March 15, 2009 at 09:08 AM

Ivanans with the rare win.

Posted by nighthawk walt on March 15, 2009 at 10:30 PM

Staubitz did not anything in fight,after a clean hit.Ivanans with the easy win in a crappy fight.

Posted by shrk33 on March 15, 2009 at 06:54 PM

Nice hit by Staubitz, but not a good matchup. Ivanans is too much for Staubitz, who's more a middleweight. Ivanans wins this one pretty easily.

Posted by tattooedkingpin on March 15, 2009 at 10:48 AM

Ivanans with the slight edge

Posted by blackgoldfan on March 15, 2009 at 12:50 PM

this is why teams employ enforcers. big hit equals meet the tuff guy. ivanans gets a w.

Ivanans with the TKO

Posted by bruiseyoureye on March 15, 2009 at 12:47 PM

ivanans pounds staubitz

Posted by jh7468 on March 15, 2009 at 02:27 PM

Definitely no TKO, and Ivanans should have gotten 2 for instigating.

Posted by No.7IsGay on March 15, 2009 at 01:11 AM

Staubitz has no chance

Posted by ogie ogiltorpe on March 15, 2009 at 12:04 PM

great hit Staubitz then he's overpowered by Ivanans after a clean hit...sigh

Posted by pepsigenerate on March 15, 2009 at 11:36 AM

ivanuns with the easy win in this one...would have been a good fight if shelley jumped in on this one{more exciting}.i hate it when a non heavyweight steps up to the plate.like i say take off the non fighters if there gonna get into it and put on a heavyweight/lightweight fighter in this matter.{make it a rule for the nonfighters to skate off the ice if there gonna get into a fight-so the fans won,t think there chickens.}. cause there just gonna get knockout or something/ causing unneccessary shit.{who wants to see a non fighter fighting}.

Posted by carolyn1946 on March 15, 2009 at 01:54 PM

IVANANS WINS. THE HIT WAS BETTER THAN THE FIGHT.

Posted by eadamson on March 15, 2009 at 02:20 PM

Clean hit, stupid fight, Ivanans gets the win but really it was just wrestling around with very few shots landed.

Posted by billy jack on October 20, 2010 at 12:28 AM

ivanans was to big for staubitz to elbow.

Posted by Goon24 on March 15, 2009 at 02:31 PM

beat down

Posted by staceyb on March 15, 2009 at 05:59 AM

Ivanans outmuscled Staubitz, who really rattled Jack Johnson with the heavy hit.

Posted by stich on March 15, 2009 at 02:21 AM

Ivanans has been fairly quiet this year, seems like the only guys who want to fight him are Boogard, Shelley and Parros. I wouldn't mind seeing him in the East I think he is a darkhorse fighter.

Posted by bruins rule on March 15, 2009 at 09:31 AM

raitis gets the win in this fight.

Posted by GSP09 on March 16, 2009 at 11:36 AM

How can somebody not see a Ivanans win here !!! A couple of blind Sharks fans.

Posted by cardac on March 15, 2009 at 10:06 AM

Staubitz gave it a go, he knew big man was on the ice and got himself in close.

Posted by crosscheck52 on March 15, 2009 at 09:25 AM

Staubitz is a pretty good middleweight and can throw them, but Ivanans is an awesome heavyweight. Staubitz got a great hit on Johnson, and I really don't think Ivanans taught him a lesson. Easy win Ivanans.

Posted by ShuterMcGav on March 15, 2009 at 08:50 AM

nice turtle move at the end

Posted by C_SKINNER on March 15, 2009 at 08:19 AM

Ivanans The Greatest =))))

Posted by tomales2 on March 15, 2009 at 03:11 AM

TKO? Are you nuts Bry? Nice try by Staubitz but was over matched. Too much strength for Ivanans

Posted by bigwilly37 on March 15, 2009 at 01:35 AM

Good job by Staubitz to fight a bigger and more experienced Ivanans.. Nice hit results in fight!! DRAW

Posted by azjim on March 16, 2009 at 05:48 AM

I call it a draw. Both guys landed a couple, neither had the edge. Ivanans missed on his hardest punches.

Posted by Sharks_Fan on March 15, 2009 at 03:31 PM

props to staubs for dropping them, clear win ivanans

Posted by TheGrouch on March 15, 2009 at 01:20 PM

And this is exactly why fighting could be outlawed very soon.... a CLEAN hockey bodycheck turns into a fight just so Ivanas can continue to make his paycheck. He won the fight but does not get any respect from me. Staubitz is a tough kid too and I think we will see more of him these next few seasons.

Posted by RoboSmash on March 15, 2009 at 11:18 AM

Raitis better get in all of his beating up on much smaller opposing players making a clean hit before its outlawed.

Posted by chad420 on March 25, 2009 at 10:47 PM

win ivan vs a much smaller opponent...please tell me KW the hanson bro is still up 2 face the Bs this week

Posted by snowave on March 16, 2009 at 03:17 AM

don't you douchbags get it? a good hit is almost as effective as a good fight in turning the tide of momentum... so there's nothing wrong with dropping them after a good hit to keep the momentum balanced and/or from turning.. btw, Staubtitz drops his gloves first. Great hit.. win Ivanans.

Posted by TrueBlue26 on March 15, 2009 at 12:30 PM

great hit...but ivanans wins

Posted by Weasel Wheelie on March 20, 2009 at 03:53 PM

Gotta give it to Staubitz. He knew it was coming and threw himself into Ivanans' chest right away. Ivanans wins this one, but Staubitz held his own out of his weight class.

Posted by BigBadBruins68 on March 16, 2009 at 02:40 PM

Ivanans blasts Staubitz at the end and gets the TKO.

Posted by H.i.t.m.a.n 514 on March 15, 2009 at 01:33 PM

WIN IVANANS

Posted by tiburon4 on March 16, 2009 at 04:28 PM

Staubitz didn't even stand a chance. Ivanans with the easy win.
