On Ninja falling short of beating a ranked opponent, would you than say that he's like Clay Guida?
Cote had nothing for Smith yet he beat him.. It doesn't matter if you don't think he should have won the decision. He won it regardless.

I wouldn't consider Smith a good win. he got cut by the UFC because he couldn't hang against any above average opponents. The only dude he even beat was Pete Sell and that was because Sell got to excited when he hurt Smith and rushed in, leaving himself open. I wouldn't consider Sell a great win either.

I'd like to see Cote vs. Lawler. That'd be a good fight.

I think at 185 Lawler would destroy Henderson.
You sound like Damone

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

Well Damone and I defiantly agree on Henderson.

He's a talented guy who has has horrible gameplans, and seems to be a worse fighter when he has to cut weight.

Lawler is the real deal IMO.

He's working with Team Hughes so I'm sure he gets some wrestling in at training, we just haven't seen him need it in a fight.

I think he would put on a great fight against Anderson Silva. If he trained his ass off wrestling I think he could beat him.
Are you kidding? Lawler wouldn't last a round. He isn't even close to Silva's level. Robbie Lawler is a second tier fighter. A win against a guy who lost to Ed Herman shouldn't be all that impressive. Lawler hasn't beaten anybody worth talking about.

Frank Trigg was a nice win for Robbie, as was Ninja.

Not saying Robbie's on Silva's level, but give the guy a little credit.

And yes, Henderson isn't that great at 185. Just inconsistent.

This was another great fight by these two. Lawler is a good fighter.
I'm curious to see how long he holds on to this belt.
