He gets his ass kicked by Nate Diaz while losing a razor thin decision to a guy who had his first MMA fight with no extensive MMA training except for on this show, and yet he deserves a contract? Makes sense, might as well give me a contract too while we're at it.
I said it once and I'll say it again, Emerson ****ing sucks. And yes, he did lose that fight. Was it razor thin? Yes, did he win? No. He landed about 3 good leg kicks in the last round while Corey pushed the pace, landed more shots while Emerson just swung wild like a ****ing idiot.
And I'll just clear this right now, before anyone says the judges "leaned more towards Corey", what the **** does the UFC have to gain with having Corey Hill going to the quarter finals on this show? NOTHING, obviously he's going to get worked by anyone with a semi-good striking game and a below average ground game, so he's just going to lose his next fight.
Not that I'm downing Corey or anything, I was unaware like everyone else that he never had a MMA fight, so I give him a lot of credit for squeezing in all the knowledge he gained on the show so far and he did bring it. I'll just repeat, Emerson ****ing sucks.
And Joe is a beast...
