Nothing real solid... mostly head slips.
Draw, but Rypien was better and more aggressive.
Prust tied down at the front this time so Rypien didn't jeresy him with the helmet stuck at his face. These guys are the toughest in the league for their size. They will see each other a few more times this year and they'll be close scraps.
It has to suck getting spanked, at home, again and again, by smaller guys. Keep trying Prust.
Win to the Ripper..... The Flamer gets put out!!!!
Win Rypien, with a couple dirty elbows thrown in there, credit Prust for staying up and throwing.
Prust did alot better than I thought he would. Rypien didn't get his usual jump but gets the win.
Prust did pretty well against a more skilled fighter. Still gave it to Rypien on punch count.
i'm becoming a Rypien fan. clear win
good scrap. both guys throwing but Rypien landed better shots.
Rypien is a tough lil dude, gets the W
Looks like Eddie Hospidar Little fiesty energizer bunny
Rypien is a modern day Wendel Clark. Rypien FTW.
Prust is the most inconsistent fighter ever.
Good scrap. Rypien gets the win.
Closer than their last one but Rypien still gets the win IMO.
Nice lip piercing, Flame......
Rick Rypien is climbing up the middleweight ladder.
Does this mean Prust is going to be third time lucky? Rypien wins.
Rypien lands a ton and gets the win but unlike Dion Phaneuf, Prust takes action after his hits.
I'd love to see Rypien vs Clarkson theyre both really smart fighters.
Easy win Rypien. At least Prust didn't need the linesman to save him like the last time these two fought and he got up after being knocked down by one of Rippers left hands. Not too sure what you guys are talking about when you say that Prust was at the end of his shift. He came off the bench which was closest to the Vancouver goal, threw a late hit on that pussy Mitchell behind the Nucks net and then him a Rypien started fighting. If he can't take a 12 second shift without being tired and then having to fight a guy who was himself already out on the ice then he shouldn't be in the NHL, or in any league for that matter. Quit with the excuses. I can see how you Flamers fans would be worried about a change in momentum with a 5 goal lead after that dibacle in Chicago the other night. I hope some of you hung yourself after that game. As for Bruiseyoureye, do you even watch hockey? You gave the fight an easy win for Prust??? Even the Calgary homers knew that Prust lost that fight. And then you proceed to call him a spot picker. Get your head out of your arse dude. The last thing that Rypien is, is a spot picker. If he was a spot picker then he would have went after one of the Flamers skill players and not one of their so-called tough guys. Who would you rather have him fight jackass? Nigel Dawes maybe because there almost the same size.
Rypien with the decision
Great boxing skills for Rypien, nice range of punches and good defense. This guy can def be considered in the top 3 of the middleweights in the league. That being said, win for RR over a decent fighter.
Good fight. Rypien was a little animal in that one. Prust wasnt too shabby either. Slight edge to Rypien
i like this guy ripper .gets the win ,,,,,again
Once again Ripper takes it too Prust, I guess he just didn't learn from last year after he really worked over by the much smaller Rypien. At least this time Prust got a couple shots close. Easy win Rick Rypien
Rypien dominated. Looked very impressive...has very good technique.
Ryp picks someone his own size and gets the edge simply cuz of more punches landed.........some early ones at the start then some haymakers in the middle.......Prust is definetly a tough customer though
Rypien's blocks are sweet. This guy is legit
narrow win by rypien
Rypien dominated the fight although Prust was game and ready to fight. Good bout.
"What does it matter if it is a clean hit? noyone wants to see someone on their team get layed out " What he said. Clean, dirty . . . who cares? The name of the game is intimidation and when someone gets hammered like that, if you can send a message, next time maybe the hit isn't so hard. It's not like he sucker punched him or clobbered him over the head with a stick - Prust accepted the invitation. Edge Rypien with a strong showing from Prust.
great bout rypien with a slight edge
rypien gets the win in this fight.
Good fight, and game effort by both, but edge has to go to Rypien.
Southpaw takes it again. Good job by Prust for getting back on his feet.
I'm giving this fight to Rypien.
Did Prust not learn his lesson last year? Win Rypien
RIP RYP. We sure could use you this season.
Prust tries to get the drop on Rypien, but he misses with the quick one. When I was a kid, the crusty, old dude that taught boxing in PE said, " Don't drop your hands. Throw a punch and bring your hands back to your face to protect against the counter punch" just like Rypper did at the end of the fight!
Easy win for Rypper. Several KDs in this one, credit(?) Prust for getting back up from each to take some more punishment.
Definate win Rypien. Hell of a fight, though.
Great bout, good win for Ryp. Extra points for Prust for second fight in the game.
More shots for Rypien against another great fighter in Prust. Another Rypien victory.
Rypien owned him
win to prust....easy win for prust. get off rypien's nuts......when is rypien gonna actually fight someone of a tough caliber......rypien picks his spots like a cheap old dirty sock. rypien will get his clock cleaned when he actually fights a legitimate tough guy.
The win to Prust
prust near end of a shift, rypien at start. 2 best middleweights in league.
Same old crap following a clean hit. Win for the guy everyone has a thing for
I expected for people to vote it a little closer than this.....right now it's: 84.2% Rypien 11.3% Draw 4.5% Prust I chose Rypien but not by much.....not lopsided like other Rypien fights.
Of course everyone loves Rypien, he's the best fighter out there!
Good fight for both. I gave the W to Rypien - but if they go again it could go either way.
Win to Rypien but he knew he was in a fight and Prust obviously learned from the last time they met. All that mattered was that he showed up and didn't allow Rypien to deliver a potentially momentum-shifting defeat. As usual, Willie Bitchell punks out after Prust wallops him with a clean hit. Rypien will get his one day...he and Vigneault won't always be able to choose a guy coming off a hard shift.
Nice win for Rypien. He certainly has stepped it up a notch so far this year. However, that hit was clean, albeit a bit late, and Willie should be defending himself.
Rypien tattooed Prust!
Rypien didn't even see the hit on Mitchell as he was busy clearing the puck from the zone.. he just wanted to end Prust's undefeated start to the season,and boy did he ever!
I'm looking forward to Rypien going with McGrattan, to see how big a guy he can take. His decent defense will help him with all the biggies.
win the ripper...prust much better this time around....a good 7
Rypien retains the middleweight crown by decision ... but again a clean hit and somebody jumps gets jumped - when did the NHL become a no-contact league???
Kinda even at first, but Rypien got it later with more punch.
Win Rypien, barely. Two tough customers, for sure. Rypien overreacted to the hit. Mitchell is a big boy, and as the announcer pointed out, he "thought" of doing something, but obviously didn't want to. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind the fighting, but the hit was clean. Just my two cents.
those guys r small but they can go i gave it to rypien....
Rypien is quick and precise with his punches! Beats a very good fighter in Prust here. Excellent scrap
Great scrap between 2 of the best welterweights in the league. Rypien with the win. Why can't anyone give a guy a clean hit anymore without having to drop the gloves immediately after the hit? Come on guys, it wasn't a dirty hit.
DID YOU SEE THAT? PRUST HOLDS RYPIENS NOSE FOR A SPLIT SECOND! TRYING TO KEEP HIM FROM BREATHING
What does it matter if it is a clean hit? noyone wants to see someone on their team get layed out
And the Rypping Train just keeps chugging along. Where will it stop next?
guys take offence to teamates getting hit, what's so wrong with that?...clean or dirty a good beating may sway the guys decision to do it again, Rypien wins this one.
Prust had some good hits, but I think Rypien had him from the get go. Looked like Prust missed with his first haymaker he tried and Rypien unloaded on him for the mistake. Good fight all around though, but gotta give it to Rypien.
pretty close in my eyes
