Who has recently put on a redeeming performance as nice as Hamill did last night? I am trying to I can't wait to see all the Hamill love before his next fight, but there won't be alot of "Oh yeah, been rooting for him since the beginning."

I respect that from him as a fighter.

I have gained some serious respect for Hamill, he put on a good fight and manned up when he lost a decision he clearly thought he won. Very respectful bloke. (and thats coming from a Bisping fan).

Man. I disliked Hamill....a lot (as a fighter) before this fight. He REALLY improved. He stalked down Bisping all 3 rounds and constantly connected. And he took the loss like a man....even though it was a BS decision.

I wouldnt call myself a Hamill FAN. But i like him now, quite a bit, i'll actually be looking for his next fight.

With a crap loss like's only a number because everyone but the judges know he took the fight. He has improved A LOT in his stand up game. He does tend to drop his hands as in the past though. More cardio is needed. If he continues improving, he will definitly be a force at 205.

Not a big Hamil fan, but he really improved his stand up game. So much that he was making Bisping backing up. I just hope he doesn't say that he can't fight for 18 months because of this loss, and then keep training. I dunno about you Hammie but a 18 month break between fights is a long training period.

But you still beat Bisping.

For most of you, ignorance is bliss, but for me it's about the truth.
