I don't think if your fighting guy who has been to an actual war you are allowed to say you won because of what you have been throuh in life and that the fight was a war. Just a thought.

My respect just shot up for TK. A green beret...eh! Saw a documentary on how they get recruited. Let me tell you 99% of us wouldn't make it past the first hour, not even the first day... It's almost on par with Navy Seal training.

Anyways workmanship fight. I thought Luke was going for a LHK KO. Props to Kennedy cuz he's durable, but lets face it there not quite top five caliber in the UFC in my mind.

- Lawler looks like he's on his way out. Not to take anything away from Larkin as he looked good, but Lawler seemed completely disinterested and way too one dimensional.

- I was pretty surprised that Gracie dominated Jardine like that. Normally Jardine has much better TDD and as long as he's not getting punched in the face he typically is pretty competitive. Both of these guys looked awful at the weigh-ins. Gracie's grappling is unreal and his striking looks improving but he needs to learn to manage his weight cut better. Jardine needs to call it quits. He's 0-2-1 after being brought back under the ZUFFA fold.

- Marquardt actually looked really good minus that gaffe in the third round. I expected him to be drained at Welterweight but he looked really solid and fresh. Those elbows were nasty. I was never on the T-Wood bandwagon, I doubt the guy will amount to much even if he gets into the UFC at some point. Marquardt I think still loses to many UFC Welterweights including GSP, Condit, Rory, Kampmann, Ellenberger, and Sanchez.

- I thought Kennedy needed to do more, he seemed a little too tentative. Rockhold completely turned him away. I think Rockhold would be a decent #7-10 in the UFC but I think Anderson, Sonnen, Weidman, Belfort, and Belcher would all beat him decisively.

I find it hilarious that Rockhold had the absolute audacity to criticize Anderson for fouling then proceeded to foul multiple times in his next fight to the point that Big John told him he was going to take a point the next time he did it.

This is why you don't be a douchebag.

I still hate Kennedy more...but Rockhold put himself on my shit list as well.

...Rockhold landed some significant shots the whole fight but Kennedy has that Army Ranger chin. Good fight but---

...Nate Marquardt did look great last night. That was his best KO finish ever. He looked solid at 170. Survived getting caught and swarmed by Woodley. His cardio looked good. His legkicks were solid. Nate's elbows off the cage were brutal. Complete game for Nate and that ending right uppercut was sick!...

It was actually more of a way of saying that Woodley should drop down since obviously there are some WWs in his path that are going to be much bigger than him.

But good stuff on not missing an opportunity to get a quick one in there.

I wasn't saying anything about Woodley's size, I don't think his size is what will hold him back in MMA. Even if he manages to make the cut to LW, he is a C level fighter who has not evloved in the slightest. So it would just be a matter of time before it happened again.

I wasn't taking a shot at you, on Nate being a weight class bigger, I was saying that he literally is a weight class bigger than Woddley. I have no idea how he made it to WW, he could probably beat guys at LHW.
