Heath Herring...

Total dissapointment so far. seriously he has not even attempted to sprawl yet, and he's been taken down a countless number of times. i was all pumped about him after seeing that pre-fight knockout in pride

O'Brien should win that on the ScoreCard. Herring really screwed up tonight.

wow, wrestlers are really fun to watch

Common, if someone is going to lay and gay it should atleast be stood up. Dah well he lost due to UFC rules!

For most of you, ignorance is bliss, but for me it's about the truth.

I just lost 7000 points. Is Herring usually that bad on the ground.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

im so sick of the UFC getting these guys who can wrestle and thats all, Yeah herring sucked but all the other guy could do was take him down then mount him but he couldnt even land a soild blow from the mount it was 15 minutes of lay and gay. This is mma not a wrestling match. I dont think you should get points just for a takedown if you cant cause any damage from it. Seems like there are more and more matches that end up like this with pure lay and gay just trying not to take a shot so you cant really lose.

Yeah, I'm ****in pissed right now. That was one of the worst performances I have ever seen by Heath. I wanted him to storm through the HW division and face Arlovski and/or Sylvia, then get KO'd by CroCop. This performance shows why he was in the WFA and no longer with Pride. Heath isn't the same fighter he was while in Pride. Also, O'brien reminds me of Koshceck-- really gay fighter who just GNP's. Heath definately underestimated Jake though, and showed zero grappling skill. I'm just pissed. We'll have to see what happens to Heath next. I'd give him one more fight and if he dosnt perform well, I'd toss him to the curb.

Herring was a total dud. No ground game, no patience, no takedown defense. All that hype for nothing!

Fav Fighters: Arlovski, Filipovic, Franklin, Hughes, Fedor

Future UFC Heavyweight Championship Bout: Cro Cop vs. Arlovski

No, he's usually not that bad. That was an absolutely embarrassing performance by Heath Herring. We got crazy hair, and an extra shitty Herring. Rogan growing constantly frustrated was hilarious to hear though. Oh, Heath, what the hell happened? You're 28, yet you performed like a 40 year old Ken Shamrock. Wait, Ken atleast put on memorable performances in his 40's.

Heath tries to save face, and it doesn't work. That was horrible.

It's the UFC's fault. They should have had him face a striker and then you would all appreactiate Herring for his balls of steel. I'm not suprised that he lost.

Dont blame O'Brian for not Heath not being able to defend the takedown. Yes O'Brien can't sumbit or anything. He has alot of work to do,but this is MMA not Boxing. Yes its not wrestling either,but Heath really sucked.

Herring is a big whiner also.
