Same for Hansen. He reminds me of Hominick in terms of size, he is just taller i think.

I guess UFC LW are just more well rounded, but its hard to compare.. different rules, different way of fighting... different crowd too.. a crowd that keeps asking you to engage, dont care how concentrated you are, it probably motivates you to give more in terms of 'action'.

Bring back knees strikes on grounded opponents.. Give me good arguments for not having them for crying out loud.

This release is the only recent UFC move that makes sense to me.

Lesnar title shot, I didn't agree with. Werdum being cut I was completly surprised. Letting go of John Fitch.....seriously WTF?

But Aurelio has lost 3 out of 5 in the UFC so I'm not stunned. He hasn't cut it in the LW ranks.

Marcus could be awesome, but just doesn't get it done. Although Werdum and especially Fitch are bullshit cuts, Aurelio is getting paid too much to get beat up by Clay Guida and Hermes Franca

This release makes complete sense. When Aurelio came over I was expecting him to make some serious waves, never happend though. Its ok, he will find his feet in Japan somewhere.
