I see Sean Salmon is fighting Eric Schaefer soon...

After seeing Salmon's poor performance against Evans, and the rocky aftermatch of Salmon taking a long time to recover after the KO, I wonder why the UFC still has this guy?

Im not making fun of him, but out of concern I think he should remain at some smaller shows and build up some better skills before he fights someone like Eric Schaefer or Rashad Evans..

I hope Salmon makes it out of this fight alright.

Salmon looked good to me against Rashad Evans. He's my pick.

poor performance?

He was winning the fight till the KO. Anyone can get caught in MMA... Do I think he would of won....? Not really sure, but shit happens sometimes. A lose is a lose though.

I also will be picking him. He seems to be a pretty good wrestler.

I got Sean in this one. He's a full time fighter now and has been training sub defence. I think his wrestling will keep the match up, where he can out box Eric.

I remember Salmon's funny looking jumpkick which posed no threat, and I remember him slowing down in the later rounds before he was KTFO'd..

I guess this fight will make or break Salmon.

there was no "later rounds" salmon was winning the fight and how long he took to regain conciousness has no bearing on his ability as a fighter.
sean salmon unanimous decision.

i know rav red and he is a super slick BJJ player and will be facing a really good wrestler. this one will go to the ground and either red gets a sub, or salmon wins by gnp(eric makes a living getting punched in the mouth to tire his opponents out so i doubt that will happen)

Yea Sean was winning that fight against Rashad, but I have to agree he did seems to kind of gas quick. His jump kick rivals Shogun's lol.
