Someone should tell Gunnar it's not okay to be too relaxed. No sense in leaving your hands down, chin out, and taking big shots, regardless of whether they come at the end of the round. Ask Overeem how that works out.

What the hell was he doing at the end there ?

Okay, prove you can take a shot or two, but he almost threw it away at the end, that last shot connected big time.

Nelson is so fun to watch. He's just so chillaxed. Could have taken less damage in this fight, but he'll become more disciplined over time.

Hope his corner run through him for that at the end.

That Karate style is just asking to be knocked out, you have to reign it in a little. Always thought that about Machida too, but he has the footwork and power to pull it off mostly.

Ok Gunnar, you have an amazing chin, we get that, but please stop leaving it out there for bombs to land. Nearly had a heart attack.

Great fight, Gunnar needs to tighten up a bit though, regardless of how relaxed he is. Taking bombs for the sake of it is just stupid.

OU, your sig is mine. Be ready.

Considering his UFC record of 1-5 Santiago was not too shabby in that fight, Nelson nearly gave me a heart attack, he took some big shots right at the end.

Took them well though. Nothing seemed to really phase him. Still had me pulling my hair out.

I do feel sorry for Jorge. He's a good fighter, and probably could rack up quite a few wins at 170 in the UFC, but he doesn't exactly get easy fights.
