I love watching this kid fight and can't wait to see him in the cage again.

You beat me to making this thread by 10 minutes. I love watching him fight. He's exciting and he's so diverse in his attack. If you remember when he was on the Ultimate Fighter, he used head kicks like jabs, never really used his clinch. Now he's really working the clinch well, not to mention he's good off of his back and has shown that in the past.

I think a rematch with Swick could be in his future or a fight with the winner of Kampmann and Markham or the loser of Condit and Daley. Him against Paul Daley would be a brutal fight.

I pretty much saw Davis getting dominated because he always has trouble with longer strikers but damn was I impressed at that knockout. Saunders vs Anthony Johnson, make it happen Joe Silva.

Try it again. It works fine for me (using Firefox).

Saunders vs. Davis

Very exciting style, but I thought the Swick matchup was a bit of a premature matchup. Having said that Swick is a larger (lengthier) WW and was able to not just get obliterated in the clinch like some of the smaller (shorter) opposition Saunders has faced.

I would like to see Saunders matched up against a lengthier fighter like John Hathaway and not somebody that is eye level with Saunders knees during the staredown (not Saunders fault but it will definitely answer more questions about Saunders well rounded game under different stylistic scenarios).

The one bright spot about my night. I picked Saunders to win but it was decision I thought he would work the clinch and use the reach on the outside striking. Scary clinch for small guys like Wolfe and Davis from Saunders. Little scared though because Davis was tagging Ben with some shots. I would almost say that should be have been KOTN.

I firmly believe it should have been. It was the least expected, in my opinion.

Was a decent fight, Saunders just did a great job in the clinch and using his long limbs. He is a HUGE fighter for his weight. Great knees, I was getting pretty hyped off those.
