Bubba even Jones said can be broken and if he is matched against Jimmy I feel that may be the case.
Luke is one of his top guys..? Must be a very low talent pool. Was anyone really impressed with Luke's performance against Gilbert? Sloppy ground game, stand up, defense, and won due to a circumstantial flying knee. (He would have probably won the decision, but Smith had a bad gameplan. He kept clinching and attempting take downs even though it was clear he was having no success, but looked okay when he actually stood and traded) Luke is 6'6" with awful distance utilization against a 5'9" middleweight. Is he really one of the top guys on the show?

Nice knock out from Uriah. It was a pretty close round up until that point. I thought he had some holes. With an 80 inch reach, he should have utilized his jab more. "Jab please." as Chael put it several times. He finally threw one, but then went back to not throwing them. It didn't matter much considering the end of the fight obviously went in his favor, but that reach is excellent for a welterweight.
