How did Rashad think he won that fight? It sucked ass but obviously Lil nog did a little more to win. So disappointed in both of them for their performances.

2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

Good pick with Lil Nog. Most thought it would have been like all the other wrestlers he faced. I thought it was decent...just a lot of measuring. Not an easy fight.

Anything happens on any given Saturday. A lot of people lost some major $$$ tonight I'd imagine.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

This fight was a perfect example of why all fights should be five rounds.

I expected Rashad to try for more takedowns and have better success with them, but it seems his fight smarts are even worse than I thought. Lil Nog's TD is decent but hardly the best in the world, and I could count the number of attempts on one hand with fingers left over, and the rest of the time he played patty-cake.

Another interesting thing to note was Rashad's careless footwork. He's fighting a southpaw and he always had his lead foot on the inside of Rogerio's, which gives Nog the better angle for landing his punches. Even though Nog is slower by a fair bit, he was able to slam the left straight on Rashad with a lot of success while Rashad had trouble connecting unless they got into a wilder exchange. This is why I've always said that Rashad's technical striking sucks, and he gets by mostly on speed & power. A more technical striker will beat him to the punch all night long, as Rogerio demonstrated in the fight.

Other notes. Rashad's kicks were working, but for whatever dumbass reason he stopped doing them. He was also coming out even or slightly ahead when they got into a brawling exchange, yet he didn't try to force them and instead he got stuck in a technical point fighting game. Which he lost.

To summarize, Rashad went full retard, and Lil Nog was more than happy to take advantage of that and fight a smart fight for the win.

Awful.

What on earth was Rashad doing?
He needs to just man up and go back to Jackson's or just retire. St. Pierre and Condit fought and handled themselves like gentlemen in the process. Evan Dunham and Tyson Grifin fought and they trained for each other side by side for their fight, more or less. I don't understand why he has such an issue training with Jones.

Good for Lil Nog, he deserves a break. He is a good fighter that has been forgotten. Him vs. Shogun or Hendo again would be great.
