Nate Diaz looked good. I think hes going to be a contender a few years down the road.

Diaz definitely will be a contender. i just wish he would bulk up to 170. Hes just so small that everyone overpowers him pretty damn easily.

By far the fighter of the night was Nate Diaz. He showed he can finish fights when it comes down to it. He also showed he improved his boxing.

Leben and Martin looked very sloppy...... both looked tired after the first round. Martin showed he has one of the worst jaws in the history of mma. Leben threw that desperation shot and luckily it landed and knocked out Martin.

Quarry/Sell fight was good but I just beleive Sell could of finished the fight but he just wouldnt. I dont know why. Everytime he rocked Quarry he wouldnt keep on attacking him.... he just would slow down and let Quarry regain his strength.

Kenny Florian showed me what I already knew. Hes a great fighter and he deserves to be in the top 10 of the lightweight division.

i don't know about fighter of the night. Kenny is looking better and better with each outing though. after Thomas taunted Florian for staying out of range, Ken really turned up the heat and overwhelmed Din. I think without the knee the match would have followed to a similar conclusion.

Florian is a legitimate threat at 155 and i would like to see Ken v Joe daddy for the belt, with a follow up fight for the title by BJ v the winner.

i think if Florian and Sherk fought today it would be a much better fight.

What knee? You mean the kick to the groin?

i dont know that florian was fighter of the night, i think diaz was most impressive based on what ive seen from him in the past. diaz seems to be at the receiving end of all the aggression early in his fights then out of nowhere he wins by sub(or freak injury). tonight though he looked much more aggressive and showed much better striking then ive seen from him before. leben and quarry both get honorable mentions for the heart that they showed in 2 huge comebacks. i will say this about florian, he has made me into a believer. when he first was on tuf i wasnt overly impressed, but with each passing fight he looks more and more like a title contender, and id pick him to win over almost every LW the ufc has. exceptions are sherk, penn, and maybe tavares(it may seem a bit early on him but damn did he look good against jason black, he could very well be the future of the ufc at LW) depending on how he looks against griffin.

fighter of the night for me was diaz also, with hazellet coming in a close second with that sick transition from kimura to armbar.

Yeah I had Din Thomas winning the fight...sucks he injured himself shooting in. But Nate Diaz was definitely fighter of the night (that was shown on tv) luke cummo, gray maynard did good and that tall guy hazelott I dont know his name had a pretty sick armbar.
