Yea, the other guy had to ask wth the point was cuz it sounded so stupid.

But anyway I like all the fight, and fighters, especially Benavidez, the kid has some unorthodox methods of striking but it worked, maybe a little bit wild, but its working for now.
And ofcourse the always great Torres

Torres is a great fighter, no doubt. However, I'm really getting sick of hearing Frank Mir sucking him off for EVERYTHING he does. That retarded somersault axe-kick just looked stupid, he really wasn't even close to landing it, yet Frank tried to put spin on it, as though it missed by a hair.

I loved the forward roll axe kick. Only Torres could make that look cool.

Yea, it looked cool, but it was nowhere near Tapia, it didn't even look like it would have had an effect if it did hit him either.

BASF has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I don't think Torres was trying to land the kick as much as get Tapia thinking about where he would be coming from next. Tapia was starting to come in more with the body shots. I thought Torres made a great move by getting a little more seperation.
