True, but Bonnar survived Coleman's onslaught, it was a fairly close decision. Machida, one way or another, ended the fight before the bell.

Neg repping someone for their opinion is dumb as shit, but some people don't get that you don't just throw neg rep around, there's a thought process that might have to be in place, who woulda thought?

Damned right! At least someone agrees, I've only neg repped like two people in two years. It isn't needed that often unless someone really deserves it.

That's exactly what I mean, you need to think about your reason, as in the reflecting, doing work type of thinking. I'm glad the majority of members seem to understand this.

I don't think Shogun is the same fighter he was in Pride, or ever will be.

He was renowned for his foot stomps, ground kicks and knees. That's a big loss to his repotoire.

He's beaten the likes of Overeem, twice, so his standup can't be too bad. But I haven't been impressed with him in his last three fights...how long does it take to get your act together.

He'll stick around in UFC though, good collateral for a Japanese show.

I'm going at a tangent now, but Akiyama v Wanderlei at middleweight would be huge main event if UFC ever headline in Japan.

He hasnt done anything that spectacular in the ufc... He beat Mark Coleman and then knocked out Chuck Liddell. 2 things that happen more than they dont now.
