I think Lyoto's exciting. I love me some Takayama vs Don Frye, sure, but I also like to watch some technical stuff, too. Lyoto's a guy who never makes mistakes. He's like an artist out there. His striking is insanely technical, and he is good on the ground, too. He's insanely gifted, and I've always dug that, from his thrashing of Bonnar to his whomping of Franklin and finally to his tooling of Nakamura. He's a guy who sort of came out of left field, and schooled pretty much all of his opponents. I like watching him make people look stupid.

Arlovski Fan, it's hard to explain, but I tried my best. LYOTO! is just a man who tries to win. I like that, and I dig him outclassing fools. Dude is amazing, what can I say. I can see why you think he's boring, he's not for everyone, but I dig dude.

I think Rashad's a talented fighter. Dude went from absolute shit to really solid.

I think you overrate Rashad Damone. I told you that when the Bisping vs Rashad fight got annouced.

I mean the guy is real skilled and his wrestling is top notch but his stand up is really overrated, His ground game isn't great, He doesn't have much in the way of GnP,I mean the guy is physically gifted but he isn't a very dangerous fighter in any way he can basically take you down a lot and once in a while (Lambert fight) He will mess u up.

Hey, the man is still undefeated, that still says something about him. Although he may not have a win over a top fighter, he is not fighting cans either.

He has wins over solid fighters like Bisping, Bonnar, and Lambert. The dude also defeated Imes, a heavyweight, who is the gogo master. (Lol.)

O I think he is a good fighter. at LHW I would put him around 10-12. But he doesn't have the skills right now IMO to be a top flight fighter. I mean his wrestling is great and he relies on that heavily but beside that he lacks another skill to dominate and since he isn't Big enough at 205 to control everyone he has trouble.

ain't most shit solid anyway ?

O well, just as long as Rashad "fights" the way he does he can contain anyone. Too bad UFC rules can be exploited that way. He'll win defensively. He can slam his way to decisions each time. (yeah yeah ...lambert...)He'll turn each fight to a wrestling match without finishing because he'll be too gassed to throw effective pounding. A lot of people admire that I guess.
I think he a talented wrestler, that's as far as I can go.

Mac Danzig is still on his back; his sweaty, pumped white torso is flushed with the auburn heat that auburn skin produces when it is aroused. His panting, fetching head has been pushed up against the cage by... Marc Bocek’s energetic pounding...

Evans vs Henderson is what I would be saying if Hendo doesn't in fact drop. I hope whoever fights Evans next drops his ass hard so we don't have to suffer thru another main event with his "double leg a guy to death" strategy

I so hope Rampage does just that.

I actually found his fight against Nakamura exiting! I mean that wa like the schooling from hell! Soko vs Machida will be awesom. Winner gets to beat Evans for a title shot!

The Nakamura fight was not boring at all. I mean watching Lyoto fight is like watching the most techinical LHW who fights with the power/but also the speed of a LW. I mean his fights move quick he throws narly kicks. When I watch Nakamura fight I watch it like I'm watch Franky Edgar, Tyson Griffen, Clay Guida or one of that type of LW. The fight is going to a decision so just sit back and enjoy the techinical masterpiece.
