most impressive to me.....
diego sanchez was 0 for 19 on takedown attempts. he landed 19 out of 120 strikes.....bj penn tried no takedowns and landed 120 out of 200 strikes. I think most of us expected bj to win, but WOW! i think most of us also agreed that diego had the best chance of beating him....and it was that lopsided?!?!? really impressive bj. he can't just jump to ww and get gsp....he could stand in line like the rest tho. maybe fight a kos or a swick. i think those fights would be fun.
i heard his trainer say that he wants to fight again no later than march. if thats the case, we could be seeing a jump sooner rather than later.
IMO, he shouldnt move up, 155 is where he's his best. the UFC should make it a priority to bring in quality LWs once he finishes cleaning up that devision. maynard and edgar are both near deserving; neither will win, but they're deserving.
how good mir and florian looked. i thought both of them would win their fights, but had no idea they'd look so dominant, especially florian. Mir looked great and he was HUGE, which he's going to need if he's going to evolve with the HW devision. And we all know guida is tough as nails, so that makes florians display all the more impressive. i dont see him fighting bj penn again any time soon, but he does make exciting fights for sure!
CUT WILSON GOUVEIA!!!!
with all the fighters that get cut, how has he not been??? i mean they cut josh neer?!?!? but not wilson? he's talented for sure, but if he's not going to do enough with his talent, tough luck, hes out.
Will jon fitch ever finish another fight???? maybe not
side note: way to go alan belcher, that was a close decision loss to akiyama. if you give him the nod there, which i may have; he would be on a tear and just as deserving to be in title talk as anyone else. His next matchup should be a good one. Give him a quality opponent cuz alan belcher brings it. he has really won me over
