Shields beat Kampmann and there's nothing wrong with losing to GSP. Melendez, Jacare, Reem, Diaz, and Hendo are all good fighters who will make some waves in their respective divisions.

Pretty darn good card imo.

Both the Story vs Alves and Torres vs Johnson should have been co main events on most cards except there are still lots of casual fans that don't know those guys.

Just goes to show that an event doesn't need a big name to be entertaining and in fact they are usually the more entertaining fights.

The UFC, post-merger is looking pretty dull. Same thing happened to WWE after they absorbed WCW and ECW.
What did the merger have to do with the PPV event?

Strikeforce and the UFC haven't merged, and Jake Shields was in the UFC months before Strikeforce was purchased. Also, not a single Strikeforce fighter has fought in the UFC since the buyout.

And the bolded statement doesn't any sense.

That fight was sh1t, on one hand you had Quinton who if I was to say "is only half the fighter Rampage was" that would be a generous complement to the skills of Quinton Jackson.

On the other hand you had a a guy who I think would of struggled to beat up my sister, slwo was not the word, I watched UFC 92 today before the Champions League Final, you try watching Rashard vs Forest and then watch Hamil vs Rampage, to call Hamil or Quinton for that matter an elite fighter who belong in the same division as Rashard or and Forest would be like trying to claim that my local pub football team belongs in the same league as Barcelona, the difference in quality is just a fcuking joke.

I have said for ages the UFC LHW division aside from having an awesome champion in falling hard and has been for over a year, they need to rid that division of its crap and bring in the new, they have SF swop Hamil for King Mo, give Hamil someone like Roger Gracie and then see what happens, give King Mo someone like Quinton and see if he can stuff those TD's.

I bet Jones is really worried about the prospect of facing Quinton after that display.

Don't really know what you're trying to say, I don't watch soccer first off, I'm not from England so I have no insight on the comparison.

I do know Rampage/Forrest was a close fight(which a lot of people actually thought Rampage won), I didn't say Hamill was an elite fighter, he's clearly not, but Hamill wasn't the push over people made him to be.

Hamill is a wrestler, he is going to shoot for takedowns, I don't know why people are upset, did you think he was going to stand with Rampage?

As for Rampage, he hasn't knocked anyone out in a while, he's slowed down, he's getting close to that age where fighters slow down, unless you're Chuck/Randy/Hendo. People still believe Rampage is a KO machine, he's not. Jones might just send him into a brutal retirement.

To me, it appears like you're on the anti-UFC wagon, I may be wrong but King Mo is hardly elite, Gracie has some amazing potential but I wouldn't bet on him over Jones, Rashad, Shogun, Rampage, Machida.

say what you will about King Mo, but he is arguably the best wrestler in MMA, and to top that off since losing the best he has been training over at the Golden Glory Gym in the Netherlands, so I am willing to bet when he makes his comeback you can add not only greatly improved striking ability to his skill set but a much improved strength and cardio ethic.

I Don't know about you but I can't wait to see the return of the what could be a much better well rounded and athletic King Mo, I think he would of smashed most if not all in the UFC LHW division before his journey of self improvement to the Netherlands, I dread to think of the potential monster that is coming back.

As for Gracie he would ride Hamil on the ground straight into a rear naked choke like he was a $10 whore.

Edit: For the record sorry for been off subject I thought I was posting in the official Quinton vs Hamill topic.

In hindsite it would have been nice for this card to be free especially because there is another ppv in 2 weeks. Honestly I thought the card looked good but not having a true main event hurt it. But with the card they had people thought we were gonna get an event like UFC 95 with an irrelevant main event but the quality of the fights made up for it but that didn't happen here. I think the bad taste left in everybodies mouth from the last 2 fights soured them on this event but potetially this could have been a good card it just didn't deliver.

The UFC can't be blamed for this, fighters got injured, had to back out, and the UFC had to do the best they can with what talent was available. They shouldn't have to lose revenue for events that are totally out of their control.

Fine card I thought .....fine card.
