I sat there all five rounds thinking, "just wait, Rani will get you." Then it never happened. Beebe looked dominant like he was just playing around. After the first round it was like Beebe was toying with a Brazilian doll. Many props for Beebe and I won't be betting against him anymore. Congrats Chase!

Agreed, I completely underestimated Beebe. Maybe losing the extra ten lbs. took a toll on Yahya. He was weaker and not able to sub Beebe because of that. I'll just keep on telling myself that to make myself feel better. I lost $3600 on that fight, total ass raping. I should have left my bet of $2000 on McCall, instead I bet only $200 on him and put down more on Rani. What a bad mistake. I was pretty sure he was going to win, and the knee-bar he had on Beebe was tight. I thought he was done for sure there! Major props go out to Beebe. He was also humble with his post fight interview, what a nice dude.

it looked like beebe could of mounted and pounded away at his face but every time he tried he was stuck right back in half. Rani has great ground skills but his cardio has to come up.

Beebe was very impressive. Almost reminded me a bit of Sherk. Both don't seem to gas out ever

Congrats to Chase! I've been watching this kid and his little brother wrestle for a long time. They started in the same wrestling club as my boys, and we were all at home watching. It was a beautiful site to see rhani with the beat look in his eyes, maybe now he will realize bjj does not make a complete mma fighter.

Yeah, that sucks man. That result surprised me too, Forbes knocked him down quick and seemed to be in control and then Baker did a nice reversal and beat him down.

Yeah.. It was a great fight until the end and then it looked like Forbes quit. I definitely would like to see more of Baker. Jesse isn't a pushover and you wouldn't really want to stand with him. He did, even though he eventually took him down and GNP'd him. Though he'd get raped badly in a fight with Filho, somewhere down the line depending on how he does with other opponents it would be something worth seeing.
