not impressed at alll,

i think thats wat mike gets for runnin his mouth, makin fun of matt not cool at all. for a self proclaimed street fighter he looks like he would have better luck beatin up drunks at the bar and to be a bjj guy he sure gave his back to matt alot, to bad matt couldnt capitilize on it. when mike did have matt in position to apply a submission to weak to finish matt off.

true he did not represent his trainer well at all. whoever trained him for 2yrs must feel embarrassed for being his trainer. I know I would if it was me.

This was indeed a sloppy fight. I have to give props to Matt for having the heart to stick it out and win the fight. His arm injury prevented him from working his game the way he would normally have. Mike was pathetic, he looked like a very inexperienced fighter. He also seemed inordinately afraid of Matts punches. If he wants to be a MMA fighter he better get used to pain.

I was also surprised with Mike Nickels. He claimed to be a tough ass streetfighter and wound up hardly fighting back and getting his ass handed to him by Matt Hamill. Matt Hamill is in a whole other world, in my opinion he would've won the whole thing if injuries didn't mess him up.

Also Chritian and Tait are pussies for backing out of that opportunity to fight.... Why is everyone so scared of Bisping??? Hamill could take Bisping.

I'm not sure but I think that the nature of Matt's injury made it impossible for him to finish him with the choke.

I thought that fight was a disgrace to not only the fighters but to the UFC. I mean comeon, that was probably the sloppiest fight Ive ever seen. It looks like you picked 2 guys randomly off the street with no fighting experience and threw them in the octagon.

Mike was the real joke... some street fighter he is
