Psh, I'd give this a 2 out of 10. That was honestly one of the most embarassing fight events I've seen in some time. Heath "Hold Me Down" Herring, Sean "Fish Kick" Salmon... Honestly, the only somewhat exciting fight was Hermes Franca. Even that was a bit disappointing. Franca did a decent job, but Spencer looked bad and Franca didn't have the power to drop him. I don't care how much pleading he does... Does he really think he can step into the octagon with guys like Penn, Gomi, or Sherk?
I think Dana knows this was a bad event too. Not only was the crowd boo'ing an incredibly boring Herring fight, but me and my roomates couldn't stop laughing the second we saw Salmon do that goofy jump kick. Nothing against the guy, but you can look at his physique and the way he moves that he's not UFC material. Am I supposed to be impressed with Rashad when he's in there to beat the epitome of a can?
Ed Herman's victory was nice but short lived and did little to excite the event in my mind. I talked to my roomates after the fight, and both were as disappointed as I to how they opened up the 2007 season. Ahh well, maybe Rashad will be confident in his standup so Chuck can send him packing early.
