I was impressed by his clinch, but it was pretty obvious that the guy he was fighting didn't belong in the UFC, and should definitely be in the LW division just based on his stature.

I couldnt belive the size of the guy, he looked like a LHW. i think need to see more him to make an opinion, but he did look impressive.

the guy he was fighting looked several weight classes different then saunders too...i mean, he was 6" shorter and probably less muscled too

And he absoulotely ran through those people they put in front of him. Could he have beaten the other people he's fought beside barrera any better?

We'll just have to wait and see...

His knees were absolutely brutal, no doubt about it. I only had one problem. I'm no pro (or even an amateur), but there were plenty of opportunities to mix in punches to the body that he didn't take. Wolffe's guard was up high to protect his head, and his liver was just begging for a hook.

Impressive, but there's plenty of room for improvement as far as mixing things up goes.

Those knees were awesome. The guy looked like Elmer Fudd when he got done with him. The guy didn't seem that talented though. And to compare him to Silva was horrible, he hasn't achieved anywhere near that status yet. I seriously doubt he will get a title shot in the next year, but he could be really entertaining to watch.

It's pretty easy to look good against a guy that sucked that bad.

Kimbo looked good against crappy competition as well. Not trying to say Saunders is as bad as Kimbo, but beating a guy that terrible doesn't tell me much about how good he is.

Give Saunders an actual fighter next time and I'll let you know what I think after that.

I hope he continues to do well.

wolff was 7-2 going into that fight, coming of a decision win over chad reiner....

it's easy to say he sucked cuz of that performance, but ben saunders came out like a wild animal and he had no answer...but as i said, the size difference was HUGE

Believe what you see.

He might not ever be champion, but he will put on some good fights. I was always a fan.
