Cool

I wouldn't worry about it, many established fighters are still young eg. Arlovski, Mir, Griffin, Ortiz, Belfort, Rampage, the list goes on and on.

Hey adora, while we're on the topic of leben I'll think I'll throw my quote in there again: Chris Leben is a bad fighter with a strong chin and Luke Cummo is a mediocre fighter with a likeable personality.

As for Stephen Bonnar, if he really starts to push himself hard then I think he'll do well.

After watching the tape from UFC 60 I think I have 1 more name I want to add to this list: Melvin Guillard.

The fact that he's 23 and he's 38-6-3 is awesome. Plus that KO of Rick Davis shows the kind of heavy hands that we aren't seeing much of in the middleweight division right now.

Melvin thats the guy i hate more than Leben. Yea hes the one that keep talking about his record, then has a fight and loses. Although he is very very quick. when hes on the ground.

Yea aside from Hughes, Bonnar is my fav.one he has a 12-1 record which is pretty good.

I'm not saying that Guillard's likeable, just that in the octagon his form is awesome and consistent. He's good on his feet and has heavy hands. When he end's up on the ground he can work his way around a guard and his submissions are solid.

I'm not saying that he's likeable, but he's a good fighter. The same can be said of Ken Shamrock back in the day, and also for the old time Royce Gracie. You just have to be good in the ring and Guillard's experience shows that he is.

Plus he's coming of a win against Glen Davis, who is a pretty good freestyle fighter, though he is a little bit old.

Your right about his fighting abilties. I just dont like his cockyness, but also you gotta do what you gotta do to get your name out there and he has.The fight i saw in TUF he had incrediable, what is it, hip strength. He broke out quickly when on the ground and such. He does have good hands.

As for the next big names Josh Neer is a name to look out for. i beleave that he has a win over Melvin not 100% sure ill go look it up. He aslo beat Joe Stev. who is no push over.
