Garza KOs Paixao in 51 seconds. Leaping knee. Paixao was out for several minutes and almost had to be taken out on a stretcher, but eventually left on his own with some help.

With wins over Jamie Yager and Rafael Natal. Not sure if that's enough anymore.

Natal is one of the BJJ teachers at the Renzo Gracie school Branch trains at. That's a solid win. But yeah, with all of the influx of talent, who knows what is deemed enough to keep a fighter on the roster.

How's this for irony? Pace wins with a Pace choke. Tap comes at 4:27 of round 3. Remember Pace loses 20% of his pay because he missed weight.

The first 145lb. fight in UFC history ends in a 51 second KO via flying knee.

That bodes well, and answers the complaints that lighter fighters don't finish fights.

Regardless, I'd take Jung vs. Garcia over Duffee vs. Russow any day.

Chan Sung Jung, George Roop, Jameel Massouh, and now Nam Phan... all fights Leonard Garcia should have lost on the scorecards.

Leonard Garcia should be on a seven fight losing streak.

I swear to God the judging is beginning to erode my enjoyment of this sport. It's becoming a farce. Maybe I just need to stop watching for a while.

Worst decision I've seen in my whole life. Should've been 30-27 Phan and there is absolutely no arguing it. Apparently you score points by throwing sloppy, wild, inaccurate punches, and getting punched in the face.

Garcia (split decision) = 11 pts. works 80% of the time....every time....
