Honestly I don't really care where someone comes from.
Cerrone is a jackass and I'm happy to see him fail.

But I agree, his fight IQ is pretty awful.

Ditto on not caring where people come from, ben alloway is from my hometown and I couldn't be happier that he got finished tonight.

Good win for Dos Anjos. He is a guy who has improved so much since first coming to the UFC. In the beginning, he was just a guy on Jeremy Stephen's highlight reel, but now he's turned into a well rounded mixed martial artist and could potentially be a challenge for anyone at 155. Needless to say, I'm a fan of his and I hope he continues to improve.

It seems to me that Cerrone typically doesn't do well against adversity. If he's not having his way with you, he seems deflated.

Cerrone did surprisingly turn it up a little in the 3rd, but too little too late.

Maybe he'll go wakeboard now?

I've tried to be a fan of Cerrone. But I simply can't do it.

I think he is a wanna be badass and it showed in that Nate Diaz fight. I agree with the poster who said he doesn't handle adversity well. He has bad fight IQ. His striking is overrated and not very explosive/fast. His defense isn't good.

Sort of sad that he was saying he doesn't even know who Dos Anjos is. Perhaps he doesn't, but that is disrespectful to say. Then he is talking about going on a winning streak and hopefully getting a title shot.

Cerrone rubs me the wrong way. He should start by getting rid of that goofy hat that Nate flipped off his head.

It's a hard life being a Cerrone fan, admittedly he's even starting to irritate me and lose my undying love.

Glad to see RDJ look solid and get the win. He's on a pretty awesome run right now, really looking forward to see how they book him next, should be a significant fight. Glad to see Cerrone lose as well, don't like his attitude at all.

I like MMA less because of this forum
