Rampage might be taking this seriously again. He wants his fucking belt back, and now that he's close to it he's gonna bust ass. I think. Maybe.
If he really went IN to the fight with a broken hand, he's bauce soss.

Hamill is B level. Sorry, but he didn't have anything. Unless he had a horrific injury, he is simply a B level UFC fighter.

Mir needs some cardio if he wants to run with dos santos and velasquez

Big Cunny is done, unless he sucks up his ego, gets with an elite team of trainers, and cuts the adipose tissue and fights at 205. He's going gray!

Travis Browne may be loose and open, but he's that way for a reason. I am very interested in seeing what happens with him as strikeforces heavyweights are folded into the UFC and it finally becomes a legit division again.

Thiago Alves is in his own head. God damnit Thiago you're so close to being GREAT!!! Just get it together! No, I can not clarify what I mean, because I don't know what I mean. Fuck you.

Brian Stann is a bad, bad man.

Jorge Santiago has been fighting in Japan too much. Too much finesse, not enough chutzpa.

Mighty Mouse and Miguel Torres are both amazing.

Kendall Grove is done.

Every time Dana White tells you he's a fight fan, he's giving you lip service. He's a business man. That is all.

Let the flames come rolling in

Don't underestimate Hamill he is decent he just run into a very slick Rampage. But I agree he isn't going to challenge any of the contenders.

You forgot...

Cards are getting shittier.

UFC 131 will be equal to if not shittier than 130.

132 is decent, but in no way stacked. Exciting and stacked are two different things, go learn the difference.

133, another shit-fest.

134 in Brazil seems to be shaping up like a decent card, but still needs some additions to make it legendary.

Mir was doing alot of work and having to control Big Country's body probably took ALOT out of him.

You can't be a fight fan and a business man?

You can, but imo he is not. It has become pretty clear to me that the #1 priority is commoditizing the fights and making as much money off of them as possible. That unfortunately reduces the quality.

If they weren't trying to MAXIMIZE profits by maintaining a constant stream of advertisment, it wouldn't have to be that way. They could still make tens of millions on each event, but once you're up as high as the Ferttitas are, it's just a numbers game. That top 5% of profitability probably costs about 20% of the quality of the events.

There's a thread on the UG which sums it up pretty well:
"Brought to you by this, brought to you by that"

i feel bad for torres. he had several slick reversals and was constantly going for submission attempts, almost had a few via triangle, leg-lock, guillotine, etc. to not reward him with a win was an error, imo

I thought Torres won the fight... Mighty Mouse did nothing for 3 rounds. Even from the bottom, Torres was consistently active while MM struggled to maintain position


I'd like to assume Hamill was sick. His take-downs have never looked as shitty as that. He'd start halfway across the cage and just come running in, bent over :rofl:

I think Hamill started just fine but Rampage fucked his head up early. Rampage was purely countering, and was doing it quite effectively and it made Hamill really trepidatious to do anything.

On a side note, I am saddened by the fact that ot.com thinks the correct spelling of trepidatious is incorrect.

Rampage went in with a broken hand, Nelson was sick as a dog... can you imagine if both those fights had been scrapped? Mighty Mouse vs Torres could have been an awesome main event! Hype up Santiago at mach infinity and Stann vs Santiago would be a great Memorial Day co-main.
