Well man seriously, I hate wrestlers as much as those ugys do... but OBrien didn't dominate the crap out of him... he just loosely sat on him and Herring couldn't do jack. If O'Obrien did all of that on Arlovski or somebody, the pitbull would have gotten out and dismantled him. Herring couldn't, Herring sucked, not hte UFC. End of story.

Very disappointing. I don't know why Herring kept complaining about being on the ground. It's MMA and they were stood up a couple of times. He didn't capitalize, and like people mentioned he didn't make much of an effort to defend those takedowns.

You guys notice that Rogan mentioned NOG a few times. At least I think thats what was saying. I thought Dana stopped him from talking about PRIDE Fighters. Was that just Joe being Joe or was there something behind it?

Nah just Joe being Joe... he has mentioned competition overseas on numerous occasions, I don't think Dana White is against hyping up the fighters as much as possible. If he couldn't mention Pride at all, they might as well have just brought Heath in and said "Well here's a newcomer. He has fought a lot before."

Well he never mentions PRIDE,he just says "Japan"(at least thats what I always hear). I thought he squashed the mentioned PRIDE Fighters by name also,but I stand corrected.

Thanks

Yea Rogan talked about NOG when mentioning great fighters who Herring fought but how can u mention great fighters without mentioning the best like Fedor. I felt like he was just about to say Fedor but the image of Dana White kept popping to mind. Maybe NOG is under a different contract, not Pride.

Joe being Joe. Rogan will pretty much say whatever is on his mind. Rogan has always mentioned Pride. Hell, he couldn't stop talking about Ken's fight with Fujita at one point.

Wow, I don't know what was more pathetic.

Herring, who totally fizzed and gassed. Or O'Brien who had the mount and Herring's back on several occasions and not being able to finish him.

I don't recall the last time I seen someone get mounted so much and so easily ...
