big john should def be the next inductee into hall of fame.
I had mixed feelings about the Marquardt fight until after this article. I didn't know that the pile driver was illegal, and no mention was made of that during the broadcast. So, while I think the elbow penalty was a poor call, the non call of the pile driver was equally as poor. All-in-all, Marquardt would have taken a second penalty either way, and certainly didn't do himself any favors in that fight. You gotta give the clear victory to Leites at that point.
I really wish Big John would end up on a bigger national stage as a commentator. I'd love to see him as a regular on Inside MMA with Bas, or even the new ESPN weekly internet show.
