True that, Johnson just seemed like the best 1st pick after the 1st fight. He needs to carry a Mike Tyson picture with him to the fights, he'd be a beast.

I thought english looked pretty damn good even in defeat. He controlled the guy i thought was the best wrestler in that first round. He also showed great abilty to get up. His striking dont seem great though, on the defensive side anyway...looked scared to get hit.

I think they actually wanted him because of his athleticism, not because he was the best fighter.

I was disappointed in his performance but he showed great resolve in the 3rd. Normally, contestants are gassed by the end of the 2nd, but he was somehow able to turn it up. Weather it was because of Tyson (I doubt it as I'm sure that's just for the drama) or GSP lit a fire in his ass, he sure turned it up and finished the fight.

I agree, Johnson does not look like a fighter worthy of a UFC contract, in fact from what I have seen so far this season the only fighter who could possibility cut it in the UFC LW division is Cody, other than that the quality of fighters is very poor.

What if Koscheck had called up Dana and asked him to get Mike Tyson in to pep up his fighters? I dont think its right that Dana did GSP this favour. It doesnt sit right. If either GSP or Koscheck have friends they can get in, then all power to them. But for Dana to get involved in one team only? Not right, I say.
