IDK man I really enjoyed the Henderson vs Ninja fight but whatever man I thought it was pretty entertaining.

What would judges do if Ninja/Mezger had a fight that went the distance?

I think it's pretty funny that Hamill may make Bisping drop to 185

I think they would give the win to Henderson if he was sitting at Ringside. Either that or call it a draw on the fact they can't give either of those guys a break it was against Pride judging rules.

Mezger vs Ninja would have been a real good fight though.

I was definitely impressed, and I always thought for everyone bashing his standup, they were really underestimating the force behind a lot of his punches. Sure, they might be a bit sloppy, but they're hard as hell and the guy has the balls to get right up in your grill. Personally, I think he took the fight, though in some sense I can understand how it went to Bisping. When the decision went over, I went ballistic, but after having some time to think about it I kind of understand. Hamill really burned out and seemed to ride the wave of his first round domination, whereas Bisping was gaining confidence and landing more shots as the fight went on. I think in light of that, it sort of makes sense that the fight went Bisping's way. Either way, that fight was called as bad as a Clay Guida fight and I think Hamill should've won it.

But, the fact that it went sour for Hamill is due to the one glaring weakness in his game that he's had since the show: Stamina. The guy burns out faster than a fourth of July firework, and that's the just the truth. Sure, he looked awesome for the first 4 minutes of the first round, but after that he looked sluggish and tired. Heck, the guy almost collapsed after the second round and was sucking wind throughout. He did the same thing on the show, and it's kind of disappointing to see that with all of his improvements, he hasn't tuned up his cardio. Maybe he has a hard time handling the adrenaline or something, or can't control his breathing when he gets hit. Who knows, but either that or he's not training right, because the guy gets tired.

I thought it was cool that Bisping was running scared in the first round, he didn't know what to do. That decision disappointed me. Look at the fight, most of the punches Bisping landed were blocked, you get points for blocked punches?

Bisping was acting tough in his post fight interview, I was like "dude what are you talking about? its good to have the judges favor huh?"

It's okay though, Hamill will be back.

I don't have new respect for Matt Hamill, I have the same respect I did when I told everyone that he was going to be a contender in that fight. If you wrote Hamill off after TUF, watch the ****in Rex Holomon fight. His striking isn't great but it is decent and his wrestling is the shit. Someone teach him the rear naked choke and some Muay Thai knees. He is a better MMA fighter then Bisping. What a sorry fooking decision.
