I was actually surprised that CB actually won the fight against Tim. To me Tim had more ring control and landed more shots through out the 3 rounds. I feel like a lot of weight was added to the take downs that CB got. To me the take downs were just both guys having empty gas tanks. Tim was able to get up right after each one anyway. Which makes the take downs worthless in my opinion. I scored it rounds 1,3 for Tim and round 2 CB.

I can't say C.B. was exposed or anything like that. It wasn't his best fight last night. It all comes down to he is a wrestler. The wrestling style isn't flashy by any means. A lot of people call it lay and pray but he is good at what he does and that's wrestle. Will that get him far with top guys? I don't know. Amir did a great job he just isn't as good a wrestler and wrestling is a great base to have in mma.

Yeah well for a new guy C.B. is pretty damn good and would've beat Amir if he didn't pull that sub out of his ass. With more/better trainers and such he will turn into one great fighter.

People call that Lay N' Gay but if you wanna see that check out Herring vs. O'Brien. CB was active enough while on top, for a wrestler

I thought CB was pretty active from the top and looks like a pretty good fighter. I just don't think he should be getting a rematch in the finals.

CB is going to get destroyed against any decent fighter in the UFC, IMO.

Fight was 3 weeks after the end of the show they had more time to prepare for that than any of the other fights. And just cos they didnt show a weigh in doesnt mean there wasn't one - unless you know something that wasnt sed on the show.
Hope Amir woops CB's ass, nothing against CB but yeah he does seems a bit over hyped and Amir is a legend.

Amir will be have a sweet spot with me for a long time to come, simply because of his TUF run. If he beats CB again, he will be the ultimate Cinderella man

Before the fight with Amir, CB said he knew Amir
was the underdog, but he wasn't going to take him lightly
or overlook him. After the fight CB said that he didn't think
Amir could get the armbar so he left it in. What kind of crap is that? It sounds to me like he did take him lightly and paid for it. CB irritates me cause after beating Tim, he stated that in his rematch, we are going to see the real
CB. What does that mean? Don't get me wrong, I think he has a lot going for him, but he just didn't live up to the hype.

It means that he got a win and started being a cocky prick again.
