Showing Hammil on the ground totally ****ed up actually bothered me. It was the first time in a very long time I actually feared for the safety of a fighter.

I was glad to see him get back up and leave the octagon on his feet.

Yea it kind of felt more like watching a street fight, the one guys gets really injured and kind of just gives up and tries to cover up and survive. I don't really feel bad for him, it's part of the job. I just don't understand why Jones did those elbows, it's kind of murky about elbows from the bottome, but no one ever throws those elbows like he did, like did he just get too excited?

I do feel bad for shogun though

It is what it is. Fighters know what can happen, so I don't really feel sorry for him in that sense. It's the hazard of the job.

I like Hamill a lot, but he just hasn't evolved to where he needs to be. Jones was bigger, faster, stronger, with far better skills. Maybe some of us, myself included, were hoping to see Hamill finally surprise. But deep down, I knew he was going to get mauled.

At this point, anyone who thinks Hamill will ever be more than a mid-tier gatekeeper at this weight class, hasn't been paying attention. There's really nothing left for Hamill to do in my opinion. To be realistic, there's no title shot coming, ever.
