You said it, it would prove he wasn't the 'best LW in the world' like they say... imo. But he'd be a damn handful.

I don't know. I saw that Russian in a million positions I have seen many other fighters easily get out of and clearly didn't know how or what to do.

Ben is only looking dominant because he is facing second rate opponents. He is god awful boring to watch, he even needs to ask the ref to stop the fight for him, because he can't figure out how to do it on his own. That was pretty lame. "How many times do I have to hit before you stop it" Well Ben, only once if you do it correctly with enough power. But he doesn't know how. All he knows how to do is control his opponent. For me, that is not a true martial artist. A great wrestler? Sure, but who cares, this isn't wrestling, it's supposed to be fighting and he clearly doesn't know how to do that. I would love to see him in the UFC against guys that know how to stop a takedown and watch him look like a complete moron trying to actually fight instead of just spooning other men until they get tired.

Stinks that they didn't show half the prelim fights. Maybe they'll post them on their Youtube channel or something.

Pretty entertaining card. Spike.com prelims to the main card, lots of good fights.

Can't wait to see Jenkins and Brooks again. Hot prospects, both looked solid enough last night. Lima vs Silva was a good fight. Silva vs Leone is a nice matchup though after last night I'm leaning Silva. Pitbull is awesome, nothing else needs to be said, very good stoppage, Downing was gonna get retired from life if he ate another one of those combos. Was very impressed with both Martinez and Minakov. Both of those dudes through and landed a lot of heavy leather and kept trucking, but liked the way both of them boxed, clean for big guys. Minakov vs Volkov is gonna be a classic BFC Russian showdown, they need to get it booked quick though like this fall, Volkov has already been too inactive. Nice to see Mo actually fight serious, Noe got it bad from him, I was wondering if he went the long slow beatdown route to get back at him for retiring Sorbal even though Mo would of been fighting him anyways, "Nobody beats up by buddy but me, buddy!" Mo will get the title pretty soon. Askren, that's great that your wrestling might be the some of the best in the sport, I want more. That knee to start the 3rd was the one Koreshkov needed to KO Ben with to make this card perfect. Micheal Chandler is the #2 LW in the world behind only Gilbert Melendez.

Was just able to watch this last night. Askren is a bit of Dick ain't he. I had never wat6ched one of his interviews before. Would like to see him in the UFC, Good wrestler would like to see how he fairs against better competition. Didn't expect that Russian kid to get dominated like that.

As someone else mentioned, looks like King Mo learned his lesson.

I can't wait to hear Dana's take on the Tito, Rampage PPV.

Chandler might just be the best LW around right now. Even if his opponent wasn't the best.

Yep, at this point I think I would rank Chandler over Henderson. Mostly because of how underwhelming Henderson is and how perfect Chandler's looked against good competition.

projected top five would be...

1. Aldo
2. Chandler
3. Pettis
4. Grant
5. Henderson

Henderson's number one because of who he's beaten (barely) but really he's going to be taken down this/next year.
