couldnt agree more with Karo. He has sucked since Diego knocked out his magic talent tooth years ago. This fight was an improvement, but i think in saying so it makes it that much more shameful. It wasn't a great fight.
Shogun,I wouldn't say underachiever... I think his competition in pride wasn't as fierce or as advanced as what he has to face in the UFC. He also lost to Griffin because of a knee problem and then they made him fight mark coleman who should be in a retirement home someplace... Id say its more about his physical condition and poor matchmaking.
Thiago Tavares I can agree with. Sometimes he shows up and sometimes he doesn't.
I think my list would be:
1: Spencer Fischer- Bottom ten LW and never goes anywhere.
2. Matt Serra- he has all the tools, but he just can't win (convincingly- random KOs of champs notwithstanding).
3. Rich Franklin- sure, he puts on a good fight, but I feel like he's lacking something that would propel him back into being champion material. I think 3 months with greg jackson's camp would improve his abilities and make him perform better.
Evil will always triumph over good...
Because good is dumb.
