I'm on the bad decision side with that one.
When was the last time we really saw Quinton go for the kill, when was the last time we saw him try to get hold of someone, take them down, try to slam someone, for me we just don't see that anymore.
All we see now is a sluggish striker who is not really technically gifted standing around waiting hoping to land a big shot, maybe he will get it maybe he wont, but one think he has not done for ages is really go out there and hunt his opponent down.
Do you know how some say Fedor lost his spark via not been active enough or facing good competition, over the last few years, I think Josh Barnett said it best when he said after he lost to Werdum "if you don't remain active then the sport can grow around you without you realizing" well Quinton has been as active as Fedor over that period, and aside from Rashard and Machida which is a fight I feel he lost he has not really faced the New School.
Bader, Jones, T.Silva, A.Silva (@LHW), Machida, Rahard, these are the real contenders in that division, In my eyes Hamill and Rampage are not up there with these guys and would lose 90% of the time to any one of them, I doubt ether Hamill or Quinton could make there way past Brandon Vera thats how low I rate this match up, I think Quinton vs The Janitor these days would make for a competitive fight, in fact I feel that I would favor Matyushenko to beat him.
