Mark Hunt, Te Huna, Lombard and Noke are the best from here, it's going to be fun to watch the UFC give Mark Hunt favourable matchups enroute to a title shot that he very well could win, if Junior is still the champ and he decides to stand with the Super Samoan.. and Ebersole lives here I think.
Glad to hear an Aussie say this. I thought I was going a bit weird when I heard a pop for Pearson. The fans didn't seem to dig Soti as much as I'd have thought and I don't know whether Soti noticed this becuase he just didn't seem like he was into the fight at all. The difference in their entrances was astronomical. Pearson, bouncing around with a smile on his face, slapping fans hands, and alot did offer while Soti, stone faced walks slowly to the ring barely registering his fellow countryman.

Excellent performance from Pearson. Defended the one sub attempt very well, took his time, didn't rush and dismantled Soti on the feet.

I've never enjoyed watching somebody get the will beat out of them... but that was brilliant. George got everthing he deserved. Well done Ross, looking good back at 155. Hope he stays there.

When you hear George's crowd respone @ UFC110 against Joe Stevenson, and compare it to what we heard against Pearson, I think his popularity is waining to say the least.

IMO everybody should be judged by how they are as a person, the fact that they are from the same country should have no bearing on ones judgement of character.

What exactly did George do to get so disliked? I didn't watch The Smashes.

It was just his attitude in general and snidey little comment. I always thought he seemed like a decent fella but this series really showed him up to be an utter ****.

According to Twitter George also punched one of Ross's coaches for comments he made on Twitter. Apparently Ross's coach levelled George and had to be separated...I'll try and find a link to the story.
