I like what ive seen of him. I think they should give him a striker next to really test how good his hands are.

He looked very impressive, agressive striking, defenately looks promising.

I say give him Reljic, Maybe a rematch with Irvin. Also Someone like Soko isnt out of the question, also dont know why but i got a feeling they'll have him fight Jardine.

Id like to see him fight Thiago, or Rashad next. He'd make a good challenge to both Imo.

picked him to beat irvin but irvin quit, i knew he had a huge reach in this fight and was going to finish it early, lets see how he does against a wrestler and deal with adversity, maybe a rashad fight or a thiago silva (those 2 have bad blood) or matt hamill, tim boetsch, sokoudjou

A fight with wilson is definitely something id be interested in seeing.

I think the ufc will try and build him up as a bad guy since he likes to talk so much smack, but as long as he keeps getting in their and smashing people, win or loose, ill like the guy. From when ive seen, he seems to have a pretty good ground game to. If he gets another impressive win, id like to see him fight Keith jardine.

Let's see you get kneed in the eye socket and see how you take it....Seriously, if Cane had followed the rules Irvin wouldn't had to of "quit" as you say. I think it's wrong to say Irvin was faking or he quit. I'm tired of people saying he was faking, quit, or was acting....Cane should have not kneed him illegally in the first place.

A pal of mine who was there live for that fight said that although cane pulled back a little on the knee that it still landed hard.

Oh no doubt, you could see that he appeared to pull back a little bit as if in a last ditch "Oh shit!" effort. Yet, in the replay you could tell it did land pretty hard as your friend eluded to.

89vision: Didn't mean to explode on you, but I've just been tired of seeing people on the boards say that Irvin was faking and what not.
