His skill level is good - just not as good as Glover... glad he won't be cut. At-least not yet...

Someone needs to create a PG account for Dana White so I can give him props.

A delightful little double standard. While I don't want to see Fabio go as much as the next guy, but I get sick of the inconsistencies.

Herman absolutely deserves to be cut, 3 losses in a row all stoppages.. Plus the fight Nog, He did absolutely nothing except stand there with his arm stretched.

I'd bet dollars to doughnuts that Maldonado is never the same after that fight. If he makes a quick turn around, I think he's getting KO'd in his next bout.

As for Herman, his game plan made so little sense, I'd almost say he bet his rent on Big Nog. He was inviting Nog to land his power punch by standing like that.

He should be cut. Cut and ripped and 185.

Maldonado vs Kingsbury, loser gets cut. Both guys took a huge beating in their last fight and kept coming back for more. FOTN contender for sure
