How does Cain being small have anything to do with this fight other then Cain being at the event and being Cormier's AKA teammate?

Aside from Cain, Cormier and Barnett are my two favorite Heavyweights. Cormier looked fantastic, one of the better preformances I've ever seen. Aside from the near kneebar in the fourth (I'm assuming that's the round Barnett was given? IMO it was the only close round), he was flawless. I would love for him to come to the UFC and put a beating on dos Santos.

I thought Melendez beat Thomson even though I REALLY wanted Thomson to win, but I'm not going to complain about the decision, as it could go either way. The first three rounds were close, with Gil taking one two and three by a close margin, with one and three being EXTREMELY close. Thomson dominated the latter two rounds. I nearly gave him a 10-8 in the fourth, but if we're going to go off the 10 point must system, then Melendez definitely has a strong case for winning. This proved me right though, that Melendez would never do very well in the UFC, at least against guys like Maynard, Edgar, Cerrone, Henderson, Miller and Diaz.

Glad Feijao choked Kyle out. Kyle has always been a prick even though some assbags find his antics "entertaining".

Spang looked damn impressive, but I doubt he'll give Woodley much trouble after he beats Marqfart.

Cormier looked amazing. He slowed down a lot in the later rounds yet he picked up Barnett and almost dropped him in the 4th. Only thing i was worried about was his cardio and he passed that test in my book.

Also, is Melendez the killer his advertised as? I want to see him against top UFC guys before i call him one of the greatest 155ers. I scored the fight to Thompson in the fght, have to watch it again though to be sure. He had a lot of empty takedowns imo, Thompson sprung up almost instantly. Thompson won the fight, Melendez won the competition.

Nate would murder him.. Hope Nate gets a title shot before Gilbert, cos Nate would never fight him.

Neither fighter would fight each other. They are part of a close knit fight team and refuse to even entertain the though of fighting each other. Whichever one takes a title they will not challenge the other.
