Matt comes through

I have to say I thought Mike would win this fight and I was definatly wrong.

I was very disappointed in Mike's performance.Not changing his game plan and just eating punches.I will give it to him for taking so many blows.I even heard Dana say it was a sloppy fight and it was.

First I Hope Matt is ok. Although I was impressed by his abiliity to control the stand up I wasn't surprised when He left for the hospital.He looked good while in the octogan though.

It hasn't clicked for alot of people yet. Matt is an MMA fighter now. Yes he's an olympic wrestler, but he's working on submissions and he's learning to strike. He won't take Bisping standing up, but he has the best ground game by FAR and so he's going to win.

It's stupid of anyone who claims to be a jiu-jitsu fighter to also make the claim that they can fight multiple guys. It doesn't work that way with jiu-jitsu. I agree, it was a disappionting performance by Nickles and sheer dominance by Matt. I can't wait for Hamill v Bisping, that's going to be a heckuva fight.

he said he has 2yrs of submission training but he acted like he had 2 days of it. he wasted a lot of money if he really did train for 2yrs.
