Rupp missed with what looked like a big one when you watch it in slow mo. Rosehill with the win with Rupp turtling.
Rupp experiences the aging heavyweights' version of an acid flashback as he temporarily travels back in time to a point in his career when he was actually taken quite seriously (in a modern day Engelland kind of way) Rosehill rises to the reincarnation countering his notoriously horrible aim with a chin (and head) of stone... to earn a hard fought right hook inspired "Almost" comeback Edge Rupp PS For those that noticed I'm working in Amsterdam this week and trying to make the most of my brief time off... which may explain my recent wordiness Wink Sorry... I'll try to dial it down ...when in Rome ...
rupp turtled and was cut win rosehill
Rosehill with the edge. Rupp started off strong but Rosehill ended strong with Rupp covering up and bleeding.
Rupp? Really? I'm not saying Rosehill is a great fighter but he beat Rupp in this fight! Rupp? Really?
Excellent close fight. Rupp lands more, …but the man who bleeds and gets dropped (and turtles) loses in my book. Win Rosebud.
Rupp early and Rosehill late for the draw!Rosehill punching late with the jersey over Rupps head a little dirty but then the adrenaline is flowing as well.Good tilt!
meh. Couple good swings but a draw
WOW! Rupp lands big shots to start and somehow Rosehill stays in it and gets the takedown. They were both in it to win it With respect to both fighters will give it a draw and a 10!
Rupp with the victory even though he squared off with a former umd BULLDOG
Rupp got the cut from the ice he landed the better early
Edge to Rupp. Its a shame his legs went out from under him when Rosehill started really swingin. Guess he lost his balance or somethin... not sayin he bailed or anything
Rupp shows he is still dangerous. Rosehill is none the worse for wear after this but edge Rupp despite the cut and the late rally.
I think rupp took this one more bombs
wow Rupp is looking like the only swing in his life should be on a porch somewhere..... Don't turn into Willie Loman Mike.....
Good free swinging bout, some bombs thrown. Win Rupp.
Rosehill landed one solid punch which cut Rupp, but Rupp absolutely destroyed Rosehill. It's obvious by looking at the votes that there were a lot of Flyers fans on here voting. There is NO WAY anyone could say Rosehill won that bout!!! ANOTHER FLYER BITES THE DUST!!!!!
Good tilt edge rupp. Didn't like the punches to Rupp at end of fight. Rosehill can weather a storm...
Giving it to Rupper because Rosehill's best shot and the one that caused the cut was the 2nd punch he threw with Rupp already on the ground. Typical Broad Street garbage.
Rupp wins. Rosehill had nothing going until the sweater covered Rupp's mug
Disappointing showing from Rosehill. I'd expect him to run right through Rupp they way Shelly used to.
Rupp out of the gate faster,Rosehill came back but too little too late give it to Rupp
Rupp didn't turtle. His jersey got pulled over his head when he slipped. Though he was cut, he still threw the better shots and the only real offense Rosehill could muster was after Rupp couldn't see.
Mike Rupp, the NHL's most dangerous 63-year-old, goes all old-school-junior-B, grabbing on and throwing with reckless abandon, which almost overwhelms a surprised but game Rosehill. I'd almost forgot Rupp existed, he gets my vote for most underrated fighter in the league, and not a bad hockey player too.
Beat by the old man!
That was a good 'ol donnybrook! Good chucking of the knuckles. Much better than the view on my iPad.
Rupp with more connected hits
This is a tough fight to score! So many variables came into play. Rupp is dominating early and imposing his will. Rosehill shows heart and rallies late with a flurry and a nice punch that inflicts damage. Judging the fight as a whole I'd say Rupp's control, aggression and strikes outweigh Rosehill's late rally and damage. Close fight to judge. Winner-Rupp
Rupp wins. Good bout. Rosehill sure can take'm
Two big boys throw bombs! Slight edge rupper, props to both!
Great bout. I think Rupp wins asked on the start. He tagged Rosehill pretty good. Give it a solid 7.5.
Rosehill got excited, put himself is a bad spot, and paid early. Took 2 big shots, one heeled him, the other shot the helmet 10 feet right. Enough by Rupp to take the win in my book, What a cattle head on Rosehill though, kudos. Good old fashioned anger in the swings from Rosehill after that, and cut Rupp. If Rupp stayed up, for another 5-7 seconds, Rosebud prob would have taken it. But ahh no. Cagey vet gets the W. Rupparena
Good scrap, Rosie caught him early but looks to have taken one quickly in return...slight, very slight edge to Rupp...more on quantity than quality of punches.
Win to Rupp and Iron Head Award to Rosehill for absorbing some heavy hits.
Great blows by both fighters, Rupp early, Rosehill somehow absorbs a few bombs and catches Rupp with a few of his own drawing some blood.
Rupp landed more. edge Rupp
I thought Rupp took it to Rosehill early. Rosehill came on late. Not fond of the punches thrown when the jersey was over Rupp's head. Even worse, didn't like the punches thrown when Rupp was on the ice.
Amazing Rosehill was still standing. A true cement-head.
Rupp remains undefeated for 2013
Great fight. I've got to give it to Rupp although at the end when the jersey comes up, he's at a disadvantage and gets tagged. The two shots that Rupp lands early in the fight would have dropped a smaller opponent. Props off to both guys for a spirited bout.
Rupp with five or six solid punches takes this. Rosehill gets the jersey over and tries to make amends but simple didn't land enough before the linesmen jumped in. Can't understand how anyone can call getting the jersey pulled over his face and being pulled down "turtling".
Dont know what fight some of u so called fight experts were watching but the american rupp took it to rosehill.
Wow!!! They hated each other in that scrap! Give it to Rupp but Rosehill came back with a vengeance
Good fight! Win Rupp but very close.
A great, but short fight. Loved "old man" Rupp with the Rangers. Dispels the myth that Born Again Christians are soft, a grisly veteran who always answers the bell. That said, Rosehill came on at the end. Just a good spontaneous scrap.
A punch bonanza. Solid punches from Rupp were responded with a hay maker from Rosehill.
Rupp started out decent but old man time caught up quickly and after knocking rosehill down with a decent shot realizes chit there goes my chance on winning this... Then turtles after taking a few back... In my mind the Win goes to rosehill he got knocked down yes but got up battles back and knocked rupp down who chose not to continue... not to mention rosehills punch did cut rupp i don't base wins on blood ever but rosehills punches did more damage.. Win rosey posey
i Agree Rupp really ?
Rosehill DESTROYED Rupp with rights that smashed into the left side of his face. Watch the fight a few times and make a fair decision
Rupp was doing well until he got punched in the face, jerseyed, and then bailed out while Rosehill is slamming him with punches and the linesmen jump in to save him. Rupp is the worst bailer next to Chara and Brashear. WIN ROSEHILL Calling this anything else is just hate for the Flyers but it's so amusing when certain fan bases whine about people hating their fockin club. Good grief.
I can't give a W to a guy who turtles. Rosie with the W.
You people are kidding, you voted for chuck and duck Rupp, who cowered like a schoolgirl as soon as it got bad ??? We need to revoke voters Oh by the way Rupp went to the stitching room for repairs
One good shot landed by Rosehill that cut Rupp over the eye. Nothing much other than that landed by either fighter although Rupp threw more, I've got to give the the slight edge Rosehill in this one.
Serious? Win Rosehill and not because i'm a flyers fan. Dont hate on me but Rosehill hurt Rupp or he would not have turtled. I gave it a 6.
I gotta give it to Rosehill for making Rupp turtle at the end ...
another ex ranger .where is the ramger heavyweight
LMAO to all those saying Rupp turtled. He had his jersey pulled over his head and did the right thing while not being able to defend himself properly. It's called defense, not turtling. Come on, it's not like he decided he wasn't interested anymore, that's turtling. I think people need to take off their blinders and use their brain a little. Watch the Philly feed of the fight, the only square punch landed by Rosehill was the quick jab that cut Rupp. In that same feed, Rupp landed at least 3-4 square to the mush/head. Just because you get cut while being aggressive and not defending yourself doesn't mean defeat, on the flip side if someone wasn't cut and wasn't aggressive, then everyone would say it was weak. Again, just because someone is cut and/or bleeding doesn't mean they were defeated, get real. I think many people on here either A. Haven't been in a fight to understand my point or B. Have got their azz kicked and still don't get it.
good fight have to say a draw both landed some bombs
Welcome back Mr. Rupp!!. Rosehill can take a punch pretty well it appears.
Very slight edge to Rupp in a very good bout. Obviously Rosehill got in at least one solid shot but he took a few more.
Rupp landed the most punches. Most of Rosehill's hit Rupp's shoulder pad and helmet, except one obviously. Slow motion shows Rosehill's head snapping back from a couple of solid blows. Nice cheap shot by Rosehill when both are on the ice. Edge to Rupp.
See ya dgiss902 Been reading the reviews on this site for a long time. Always liked this site, the way it's managed, and the opinions of those who post here. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Rupp started well, but Rosehill punished him at the end.
It was close, but Rupp leaked and Rosehill had the better punches. Edge to Rosehill
Good back&forth bout....Guns&Roses with the comeback win
Rupp surrendered (turtle shell), Rosehill with the win.
Rosehill makes him turtle and cuts him but Mike "you're irrelevant" Rupp is chosen on this site? Odd.
Win Rosehill Rupp started well and landed 2-3 to the back/side of Rosehill's head (the 'knockdown' punch clearly misses, which you can see on the replay) and then Rosehill comes back lands some hard punches which have Rupp covering up and the linesmen coming in to stop any further punishment.
i gotta give it to rosehill
Voters on this site are getting hilariously worse, if that's even possible. Rosehill gets the KD on Rupp and cuts him and Rupp turtles... and the winner is being voted as Rupp? This site is going to lose its credibility pretty fast if we keep letting the mouthbreathers loose. This is insanity.
Good fight. Lots of punches thrown. Rupp appeared to be landing well in the early stages and then his jersey went up over his head and he hit the deck as Rosey was landing. Edge to Rosey in this one. Don't like Rupp's bail job.
Great scape. Hard to say draw because it was a "two halved" fight with Rupp at first then Rosehill instead of giving up, came back and won the 2nd half which ended it. So Rosehill with the nod.
Wow !Solid shots by Rupp who lacks power for such a big guy.Rosehill wins with a thick skull and the comeback.Rosehill's noggin might hurt more in the morning, but the last one standing wins,period.
Rupp hit Rosehills helmet 4 times then turtled when Rosehill started throwing. Rupp loses respect. Sissy.
Rupp started strong but took a wild haymaker to the head that brought him down to the ice.
the flower man endures a rough start, only to prove to be a thorn in rupp"s side by the end of the bout.........entertaining tussle
If you listen closely you can hear Rupp mutter to himself "I'm getting too old for this crap."
A lot of phantom accounts voted this as a win for Rupp. Decisive win for Rosehill, he pummeled Rupp and forced him to turtle in the end.
Rosey with the nice recovery and gave back a beat down of his own... give it to Rosehill
For any of you Gomers who voted for Rupp, get your eyes examined! Rosehill takes his best hit and pounds him into submission while cutting him. Why do you even vote?
rosehill win rupp had a fast start but was cut and getting smashed at the end
Rosehill, how is Rupp ahead????
Ok, I really cant stand this site anymore, it is literally the only hockeyfight website that has rupp voted as the winner. And 73%? Unacceptable, this site used to be good and nowadays idk whats happening but it seems as though everyone is voting fornpwople just because its who they like or wanted to win. I been viewing this site since 2007 and I just cant anymore. For anyone feeling the same, I suggest trying out dropyourgloves.com for a more accurate viewing and better overall site. It has a listed punch count, weight/height difference, everything. Adios fellas
Holy smokes!! Rupp had a great start and landed nicely. Rosehill impressively withstood the barrage and connected with a few of his own, cutting and dropping Rupp to pull out the win. Great fight!!!
When I watched it at normal speed from the live angle I thought that Rupp had won the fight, but if you take a look at the reply, all those shots that appear to hit Rosehill do not. Watch it again and watch the reply at a slower speed from better angles. Rosehill for the win. I pooped the bed
Must be a lot of Flyer HATERS out there. Rosey palm all the way.
Great scrap, both firing solid accurate right hands, rupp early,a rosey late, rupp bleeds, call it an even draw
great fight but rosehill landed the best punch
Rupp early, Rosehill late. Two dudes who can take and throw serious punches.. Draw.
Nice exchange. Rupp with the quantity, Rosie with the quality. Call it even.
Wow both guys with bombs. Can't give a decisive edge to either guy. Draw.
rupp punch for punch.
Giving the edge to Rupp.
Forensics experts were called in to determine Mr. Rosehill's attacker. Positive identification was made from Mr. Rupp's knuckle prints left on the victim's cranium.....
I can't stand the Flyers, but a Rupp win really??? Sure he lands a couple of nice shots, but so does Rosehill and Jay dominated the end forcing his opponent to turtle and wasn't bleeding when it was over. Win Rosehill
Rupper comes back from the minors to lay some heavy shots on Rosie's noggin.
Rupp unloads! Rupp wins, Rosehill comes back but pucnhing someone who can't see doesn't wash with me, Rupp win.
Rupp really got it going early on but credit to Rosehill for weathering the storm and mounting some offense of his own towards the end. Respect for both men in an exciting fight. Going with the Rupper.
As much as you dislike Rosehill.. he is a very exciting fighter to watch. The guy has no quit and he clearly loves fighting plus he has no fear in who he fights. He takes the loss here, which he usually does, to Rupp in I believe his first game back. Rupp gets the W, but my oh my he really is aging.
Ruppers almost TKO'd him but Rosey gained his bearings back and catches Rupp late.. Ruppers with way more bombs connected. Win MR
Rosehill, how is Rupp ahead>
Don't know if Rupp was injured, in the press box or or in the minors, but i had forgotten about him. His first fight i will not forget, great swing for the fences match.
Rupp won and it looked at first like it was going to be a slaughter...NOT SO MUCH!!! Rosehill comes back HARD and lands some beauties. Both these boys will be soaking their faces in a bucket of Molson and Ice...Here's to both of them...a great hockey fight!
