wouldn't say he owned farber just made a mistake and dropped his hands but that kick was flat out amazing.

yea Farber was pretty much outstriking him until he got caught, but than again thats how Markham starts off

but yes i'd give it to Markham, put on an exciting fight, which is a + for new comers, and first fight already earned a bonus, so yea i defenately think he had the best debut.

I voted Loughran, he had a pretty neat striking stance and looked incredibly flexible on the ground. I heard good stuff about him going into this fight and he delivered. Markham I already knew about and fully expected that to be a KO in his favor. I wasn't as impressed because he was being out-struck early on by a bjj guy.

Silva at 205



I was gonna go with Markham if you mean a UFC debut.

But definately Silva overall.

After watching Anderson dismantle James Irvin at 205, and Irvin taking less shots than my boy Leben I know longer feelas much shamefor Leben's fight against Silva.

Most impressive for me was Markham I called the fight perfect but there was no way I thought the finish would be that impressive.

MIrko Markham. Rory came off as CC Lite with that KO.

Rory easily, what Cro cop was supposed to do for 300,000 he did for 10,000.

There were a lot of good debuts. Actually I think the undercard was more exciting than the main card, which seems to be a trend as of late.

Personally I went with Tim because I was really surprised with his hand speed. It seems like we never really get to see these guys from TUF in top form during the show.

I think Creduer will have a good career in the UFC.

Markham was impressive and so were Credeur's striking skills

This has to go to Rory Markham. I didnt get to see Blackburn TKo but it couldnt have been as good as Rory absolutly crushing Farbers whole left side of his face. I liked Markham in the IFL and hope he puts a dent in the UFC WW division. I would love to see him fight Kos.

Blackburn looked really good too. He looked like the guy we saw in his last IFL fight. Good defense and he knew when to pour it on. His thumb broke in the first round and he kept hurting Giboo over and over. Too bad he will be out with that injury for the rest of the year.

IMO:
1. Loughran
2. Blackburn
3. Markham
