I totally agree Mike Bisping is a very talented fighter and he's my pick to (easily) win the contract in his division.. My other prediction is that The Kendal Grove and Ed Herman fight is going to be the fight of the night.. In addition, I have Kendal beating Herman in fight that I believe will come close to The Forrest Griffen - Stephen Bonner contract match (excitement wise.!) I do however admit that niether fighter has -or any fighter from season's 2 + 3 for that matter has- the heart that Forrest or Stephen have.. I know that Kendal is the under-dog in this fight and I admit that at the begining of the show I predicted that he would be one of the first to be eliminated. But under Tito's direction he has grown more than anyone on the show.. Ed Herman has showed nothing but midiocre perfomances and a big mouth..! On another note, Florain as the main event.?? I admit that he has improved leaps and bounds since his lost to Diego Sanches but the main event, yeah right..!vampiro said:mike bisping is my pick to win the contract. he's the second best fighter on the show besides the def kid he's so talented and his ability to controll a fight (ring generalship) is awsome. in the octogon this whole season he's been an ultimate fighter.he handles his bis-bis
I saw what looked like a half-hearted tap, and at least one of the announcers thought it may have been a tap as well (Joe Rogan). I'm amazed the ref didn't consider it one, but I'm glad he didn't. It would have been premature. That was a great fight, but I don't particularly agree with giving Ed a contract based solely on his performance. Shortfuse would have been given a contract eventually, but I think Giving Ed the contract on the same night cheapens the outstanding performance of the "underdog", Kendall, who proved his dedication and heart transcended expectations. Ed had some impressive ground and pound, but I feel Kendall won cleanly, and given 20 or so more seconds, could have forced Ed to tap.ColossalCanadian said:is it just me or did it look like kendall tapped out during the fight with ed?
