I was so disappointed with this fight. Really wanted Roger to take one of Kennedy's limbs home with him.

Both guys looked like shit.
Kennedy just happened to look less like shit than Gracie.

Gracie will probably be fed to someone like Boetsch and lose. Kennedy will probably get someone like Bisping so the UFC can keep pretending that both guys are good fighters.

Bingo.

Funny how many people picked Roger because he is a Gracie or just because they were rooting for him. He was outmatched in every aspect other than pure BJJ.

I decided not to vote because I simply don't care for either guy... Needless to say, I almost fell asleep during this fight.

Neither will be but Gracie showed he is nothing better than Palhares. I bet Palhares would beat him.

Tim is a name that hangs around for a while. Tim is a really solid grappler and can take and maybe sub much of the MW division. I might favor him over a Belcher.

I disagree, I think Belcher is better overall. That being said, Tim is a solid fighter.
