I voted yes, half of it is my personal opinion. That is, I don't feel a fighter should just stand there and do nothing significant, but w/in those 5 minutes throw what... 5 leg kicks?

The other part, is Emerson didn't do anything, but those leg kicks, nothing significant. The scoring system is also based on ocatgon control and aggression - the fact is Corey was pushing forward, Corey was leading the exchanges, and Corey was getting the better of the exchanges.

They both were inimpressive and neither deserve a shot in the UFC after those performances.

F'n A. He is is the Pedro Rizzo of the LWs with no KO power. He needs to learn to be aggressive.

How? First fight is an embarrasing, inimpressive lose. His second chance he shows no aggression and does nothing significant. Neither did Corey, but he was more aggressive and pushed the pace. The UFC shouldn't give contracts to fighters based on how people feel for them, they should base it on talent.

If I can have my way, I don't care if they both got the boot out. Corey is just too green to be in the UFC and Emerson had every opportunity to exploit that but chose not to. I was wishing for him to just do what Lauzon did and jump on Corey's back for the choke with or without hooks.

Mac Danzig is still on his back; his sweaty, pumped white torso is flushed with the auburn heat that auburn skin produces when it is aroused. His panting, fetching head has been pushed up against the cage by... Marc Bocek’s energetic pounding...

I hadnt even see the show when I made that comment; I was just basing my opinion on the first fight/ others' opinions. I thought he fought a good fight the first time around. Not so impressive in the second one.

I retract my statement.

I think Hill won the OT round based on a bit more aggressiveness, but he did not do any damage. While Emerson didn't push as much, his leg kicks did some damage. I think the judges need to go back to school or something. Last time I checked, throwing more and landing little to none of them doesn't make you a winner of a fight. Damage is what matters in my opinion. I don't blame Emerson for being pissed. He should have gone and leg-kicked some of those judges and then asked them if they still thought Hill was the winner.

cory was a big disapoint ment like the guy matt liked when he was on tuff. He had a really slopy style. all emerson had to do was just keep the pressure on and he would have won. cory was sticking his chin out and one high knick would have done it. he will get killed when and if he fights Joe.

Emerson won that fight easy Corey did almost nothing against Emerson. Corey had good first round but other than first round he was bad.

Round 1 - Tied
Round 2 - Emerson
Round 3 - Emerson

Hate to say it but aggressivness is a criteria for scoring the fight and Corey was simply the more aggressive. Lets be honest here if Emerson hasn't gotten the heel hook in the Second round would he have won that round? Probably not as Hill was just pushing more, hence being aggressive and controling the pace of the match so he won. There were multiple times that Emerson could have changed the tide and pressed the action and probably scored more but he didn't I think that goes into the judges thinking too. While each had a piss poor showing Corey had the less piss poor showing.

Meh, wouldnt get too bent out of shape over it guys, Corey aint goin any further in the competition.

I personally thought Corey won, he pushed the fight for the most part and all Emerson was doin was counter punching, I dont understand how he thought he won,

1st rd: Corey he pushed the fight and landed more.
2nd rd: Emerson easily
3rd rd: Corey, he landed more boring jabs than Emerson did kicks.

I still don’t understand what Emerson was thinking, Corey had no KO power in his punches, all Emerson had to do was be more aggressive with some overhand rights and throw down a few more lag kicks and he would have walked through Corey with ease.

Does anyone notice how gun shy Emerson is, looking away when he swings because he doesn’t want to get caught? No wonder few if any of his punches land. You have to be willing to eat a few jabs and glancing blows to get inside and really do some damage. Emerson looks like he would have dominated if he would have been able to get it on the ground.

None of this matters because it looks like Joe Lauzon will easily take the entire thing. This kid is extremely comfortable in the octagon and pushes the pace from the beginning without any hesitation. He also looks extremely focused; his only problem is perhaps being overly aggressive.
