He should fight someone higher up the ladder like a Mike Chiesa.
Sad for Medeiros, but I think you stand correct in this assessment. Just like Coleman vs Shogun in Pride or Maia vs Stun Gun. Takedowns that worked.

That would be an interesting fight because they both like being in the clinch. Khabilov likes that suplex, and Chiesa likes searching for that trip and rear naked choke. It'd be an interesting match up.

They might as well be considered the same ...

Wouldn't be opposed to a rematch in either of the last two fight really, but whatever. Suplex ftDUB

The same kind of ideology applies to this latest fight. Ok, the one guy has a broken/dislocated thumb. Is that injury severe enough to warrant a fight to be stopped if the fighter is still willing to continue? Can a dislocated thumb cause a fighter to die? To me a dislocated thumb is bad, it probably hurts like hell and increases the chances of a more severe injury(thumb more likely to be ripped off) but if the fighter is willing to take the risk then imo he should be allowed to continue fighting. Only in situations where the health of the fighter is in significant jeopardy do I believe fights should be stopped by the ref/doctor.
Did you hit your head and develop amnesia?

It is 2013 not 1996.

Siler vs. Holobaugh was pretty good. Not sure why they replayed McMann's fight, given it had just aired.
