so many good fights that night, must have been hard to pick FON. Thompson need to work on his ground game and this kid could be scary, Matt Brown said he was completely out at least twice during the fight, dude has some heart to be able to push through and come out w/ the win. McDonald and MacDonald both looked super impressive, Rory seemed to struggle a lil bit on the feet w/ Che but once he took him down it was over. Felt bad for Miguel, Michael just ran through him, had a feeling this was how it was going to go though. Eddie Yagin vs Mark Hominick was also good, but I thought Mark won the fight. The two HW also looked great, Njokuani vs Makdessi wasnt as good as I thought it would be but still a good fight
Yeah, Thompson NEEDS TDD and be able to get back on his feet. He gassed BAD when he got taken down. Rory's standup was ok but once he's got you on the ground, it'll be impossible to get back up. some vicious GnP.

Brendan trying to hug air was pretty brilliant after the TKO Sucks that Torres lost. After so many wars, his chin is gone..... Traves is a scary beast..... he should definitely get a top 10 opponent in his next fight.

I enjoyed the card, wasn't expecting a 5 round decision though.

Disappointed with JDS v Mirr though but there aren't too many other options.

lol yea, I felt bad for him. He is very talented but has no chin what so ever. He tends to do the same thing, he hurts you, then goes in all reckless and gets KOed. He needs to be more technical when he has someone hurt. He's Brandon Vera part 2, lots of talent but he's never going to go anywhere

same here, I thought if it went to a decision, it was going to be Rashad winning but Jones played it safe for the most part. Hope this isnt the beginning of him GSPing fights

LOL he is vera v2!!! funny and a bit sad really. I could cut to lhw, his size and speed would work well for him there.

Jones will not be a GSP style guy. It just won't happen. Granted, he did play safe against Suga but why wouldn't he? Rashad is the only guy that's had experience against him and knew some of his holes. You have to play safe and respect the guy infront of you when you know he knows ur shit lol xD

I especially loved rashad's facial expression at the end of the 2nd round -he had the look of defeat and a loss of will to compete

I saw that, how awesome is that. I would love for him to fight Chris Weidman as his first fight, if he looks impressive, he should get a tittle shot IMO

Not sure if you saw the press conference but Chael tried taking the belt from Anderson as a joke and Anderson gave him the scariest look, I cant wait till he KOs him

Overeem is gonna be out till Dec, the doctor took all the blame so 'Reem didnt get a full year

I agree but the scary part is how much he improves from fight to fight. I lost a lot of respect for him when he pretended to injure his hand to get out of fighting Rashad last year, he knew he couldnt beat Rashad then. So trust me, Im no fan but this kid is unreal. I'm still keeping hope Hendo lands the h-bomb and puts him out

I cant wait for him to move up to HW, then we'll see how he does. IMO LHW is just a training exercise for him

That press conference confirms to me that Silva got a huge compensation for the event not taking place in Brazil.

"Chael Sonnen doesn't practice the martial arts." "He's a wrestler, so he doesn't know what martial arts is. Respect. Respect for a country. Respect to a people. And respect towards human beings. Many times, people even ask me, 'well, isn't he promoting the fight?' Yes, okay, but there are many different ways for you to do that. He did not respect our country. He disrespected my family. And above all, he disrespected all the UFC audience."

Man, I seriously don't know if Chael knows full well what he's gonna be getting himself into...... Silva with a fixed up shoulder and no rib injury..... This won't last 3 rounds.

Jones is the real deal. I doubt he'll lose to Hendo. If he gets caught with the HBomb tho, that'll be interesting to see how his chin is with that sort of power. Fact is tho, if he plays safe and pick his shots. Hendo will gas and Bones will go in for the kill.

Munoz vs Weidman, I'm gonna call Munoz via decision but it'll be quite the interesting fight.

I can't see JJ losing to Hendo unless he fights stupid and tries to brawl with him.

So I take it you were the doctor who examined him and determined he didn't have an injury at the time?

Hendo is awesome, but I'll be in the "Holy sh!t" crowd if he actually lands that punch on Jones.

tough call, I think Lombard will win but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Stann won

TUF Live was great, what a fight and WTF UFC Brazil, they posted a screen shot of the winner as the opening imagine of the stream

I'd say Hector BUT, if he gets caught by 1-2 of Stann's knees, he'll be done for.

I think Hector will walk through Stann, KO/Submission. I think it will come down to experience and him being on another level.

Have any you guys seen any of his previous fights? Check out some of his highlight reels, he's a nasty finisher. Stann will be a bigger test for him though.

Not taking anything away from Lombard, but in the last 2 years all he fought were "B" class fighters. The biggest name he fought (IMO) was Mousasi, but that was back in 06 and he lost.

Stann will be a test for him in his first UFC fight, and the step up in competition will be good for him.
