After Colton Orr
shattered his nose and confidence last year, Belak rebounded with a solid heavyweight outing that included impressive wins over Orr and Andrew Peters
, as well as impressive battles with Donald Brashear
and Cam Janssen
A year after we thought he had lost it, Brashear returned in top form, opening up a bit more, dismantling the likes of Colton Orr
, Arron Downey and Andrew Peters
, and starting some old-school brawls by bloodying Vitaly Vishnevsky. No doubt this year put him right back on top again.
Parros' balance and fighting ability continued an impressive improvement from his rookie year. He was now taking nice deciscions from Cam Janssen
, Scott Parker
, Darcy Hordichuk
, David Koci
and others while staying on his feet to engage in some good slugfests.
After fighting had nearly disappeared from Tootoo's game in 05-06, it returned in abudance this year with 12 fights including a slugfest with Jamal Mayers
and answering the bell against heavyweight Reed Low
. Five wins against two losses, more activity, and a nasty KO of Stephane Robidas
earn him a comeback nomination.
had a great mayhem-filled year filled with impressive fights a year after getting knocked down by Doug Doull
