I like the fight a lot. We get a lot questions answered about Dais imo because we know Lentz is going to bring a stiff test and drown Harcan if he is not ready. Big things coming the winners way I hope.

Pretty crazy that this with be Lentz' 12th fight in the UFC, only lost twice, and he's NEVER been on the main card. That has to be a record or something.

Yea I consider myself a Nik Lentz fan, but he could easily have 6 losses on his record if it wasn't for some bad judging and a miracle comeback.

Pretty much what St. Paul Guy said. Still, he seems to be a completely different fighter at 145. He found a home and I expect him to be on the main card soon if he keeps fighting the way he has been recently. The winner of this fight should be getting a big push in my opinion. I'm leaning toward Lentz, but I expect Hacran to make this competitive.

Awesome first round, hard least for me not to pull for Larsen with the crowd so decidedly against him.

AlphaDawg 05-18-2013 04:43 PM

I give that to Larsen. He dropped Martins and hurt him two other times.

EDIT: Two rounds for Larsen.

dudeabides 05-18-2013 04:52 PM

Man, I don't know how many fights he can win with his striking defense, but Martins sure lasted long enough to blast Larsen at the beginning of round 3!

Fun fight.

Though I'm beginning to see why some dislike the Brazilian crowd.
