Yeah, Woodley looked extremely small compared to Marquardt in that fight. However, I'm not sure he's a completely one dimensional fighter. Granted I do agree he needs to become more well rounded.

This card basically confirmed everything I thought about Luke, Tim, and Tyrone.

But good stuff on not missing an opportunity to get a quick one in there.
Kinda interesting now that everybody is dropping weight classes. First it's one, then two, and three. There's a few and I won't be surprised if we see more; Vemola, Florian, and maybe Rashad now dropped three weight classes. Then we have the anomalies who fight above their weight classes; BJ, and the GOAT.

What these fighters don't realize is that skill wise it's all the same. Marquardt is definitely a very solid fighter, but he's still going to be in the same spot in the WW division as he is in the MW in the UFC. A perennial top 10 or five at best.

As the sport evolves it seems like everybody is trying to find the "edge" or in my books the loop holes to get the coveted "W."

To be fair, Florian should never have been above LW. He blew up just to be on TUF then there was no LW division. Rashad did the same thing for TUF, he had no business at HW.

Tweeted sth about Anderson and his behavior as a champion (knee which was proved to be legal and grabbing shorts) while he almost lost a point due to fence grabbing. I know this isn't important since he eventually made it but he missed weight on his first time as well.

I view that as Big John needing to be part of the show again. The point where he started being a loud douche about fence grabbing didn't even involve a fence grab. He was anticipating Luke grabbing it again so he could make a big scene and get some camera time.

Oh he grabbed the fence, multiple times.


I don't care about minor fouls though that much and don't make big deals about them...but he did it.

I'm not making excuses but just because Rockhold grabbed the fence doesn't mean his character goes down. Sometimes in a moment of a fight we do stuff we normally wouldn't. That might have happened in this case.
