Well, are people finally going to...

Are people finally going to give Rashad some credit, I know Salmon may not be the best fighter out there but he kept it interesting. I was just super impress at how calm Rashad was and how he set that whole kick up, perfect.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Rashad is a good fighter, doesn't mean Salmon wasn't a can though.

You're just a cook...

Give Rashad credit? Please man, he lost credit in my eyes. He's fighting a complete newb in that ring. Salmon was out of shape, had (And I kid you not) the worst kicks I have ever witnessed in an MMA event, and couldn't do jack crap on the ground. He was gassed midway through the first round... And he hadn't done anything!

Of course Rashad looked calm. Have you ever stepped into the ring, exchanged a few swings and suddenly realized you outclass your opponent by leaps and bounds? It takes all the pressure off you. Your shoulders relax, you loosen up a bit, and you have the confidence to really let it go. Dana fed Rashad an absolute can so that Rashad can have a nice highlight reel to hype up his title shot. Nothing against Salmon, but my goodness that guy should never have been in the UFC, let alone making his debut against an undefeated Ultimate Fight winner!

What??? Man are you serious...did you not read the part where I said he remained calm and that Salmon kept it interesting??? But Rashad did not get dominated,not by any stretch of the imagination.

Haha, good to know Dana's antics still work for the easily amused "UFC RULZZ!!11!" masses. I bet you'll be all hot and bothered when Hughes beats Lytle too, won'tcha? Silly person, you're excused.

He didn't look too confident in the first round after being taken down several times by Salmon, did he? I imagine I'll get the same lame reply you gave to the last poster. It's all good though.
