After his devastating loss to Rashad Evans at fight night. Salmon will get his 2nd UFC chance. Im exciting to see Salmon agian , had a good first round agianst Rashad. Eric lost his last fight to Bisping in December

I hope he breaks out that devestating kick again that he tried early in Round 1 against Rashad. But seriously that guy looked decent in Rd 1 and terriable in rd 2. I dont mind the UFC giving him another chance.....

A serious Karate-kid moment I still can't beleive it happened. It's like something Krazy Hoese Bennet would usually pull. As for the fight, they are both ground guys, so I think the uFC will dark match this one. Unless they suddenly become Diaz/Diego and are rolling all over the place. I'll take Scafer by sub in the 3rd.

This should be a interesting fight. Schafer is a good fighter and Salmon was able to do well against Evans until the KO. Also, Salmon will want to be redeeming him self from his loss. With that being said, I'd give it to Schafer.

I spit out a full mouthfull of MGD all over the carpet with that one... rogans quote was classic "ohhh no"

Total Karte Kid moment, reminded me of the stuff people used to do back in the early days of UFC (crazy kicks and karate moves that dont work in full contact sports)

I hope Salmon develops a striking game before he faces Schafer, but i dont see that mattering much anyways, Schafer should get back in the W column after his loss to Bisping...

Salmon really didn't look all that bad...looked inexperienced, but confident. I did notice he was breathing out of his mouth already after like 2 minutes in the first round. Maybe he's worked on that though, who knows.

I think Salmon should slim down and go to 185, he's not very tall (5ft. 10) and has a little extra round the middle. They aren't a lot of great wrestlers at 185 presently in the UFC, I think it would really help his chances of staying in the UFC.

Salmon wins via way of KO from a Karate Kick, not a match I really care to much about, but I'll take Shaefer.

Sean Salmon was controlling the fight till the KO kick. Maybe unlucky.. not sure..

People are just hating cause the nice KO, and the retarded kick Sean did lol.
