I don't get how you aren't impressed with Josh, he's got a fantastic guard, he can KO guys at will and he busts out the Sakuraba double fists(better than Sakuraba does it). Look I don't want to take Josh out for a dinner and a movie, I don't think you need to love the guys you root for. But the UFC is getting two new blue chippers in the Middle weight division and from what we've seen from the Bisping/Miller guys, getting some heavier draws that can fight is not a bad thing.

The double fist is retarded. Doing literally anything else would be better. His guard was at best average. I don't know where you get great from his spasmodic and completely lacking in skill submission attempts. All he was good at was getting back to full guard. And his ko power is exaggerated. His striking is stiff to the point it's painful to watch.

Honestly - unless they feed him good match ups - I see Samman (once he wakes up from what Hall does to him) going 0-2 and getting cut. I don't see anything interesting from him at all. So far he has just had the easiest fights to the semifinals.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Josh took two great grapplers in Tor and Jimmy and shut them down and knocked them out. Both guys had the positions to finish him and Josh was active enough to shut them down. He may lose to Urijah but he'll end up like TJ Dillashaw, Dennis Bermudez, and Ramsey Nijem who have gone a combined 9-0 since they lost their TUF shots.

Also him having the easiest fights are laughable, he's taken on Bubba who lost and the two last picks from Team Jones.

Tor and Jimmy are grapplers but I hesitate to use the word great because I haven't seen that from either of them. He beat both fairly. Tor because he dropped his guard and Jimmy because he just gave the **** up for no reason. Samman literally did nothing impressive in either fight. He looked stiff, looked that mediocre kind of well rounded, and brings nothing interesting to the table.

He will not go on some big winning streak. He'll lose to Hall, go 0-2, get cut, and disappear.

So glad Jimmy lost. His last two fights were a joke. Did nothing but lay on the guy as long as he could. Watching him is almost as frustrating as watching GSP. Throw some punches or stop trying to fight, jesus.

Holy shit. Uriah Hall is a beast.

Can't wait to see him KO Josh.

I was just starting to think i had underrated Quinlan again and he quits like a bitch Its hard to give Samman much credit when it goes down like that. Hard to say anything about the Hall fight without coming across like an excited 11 yr old Justin Beiber fan....so i wont bother.
