that was a fun card. i need to start watching more of these TUF finales.

looked to me like nelson semi-rocked mitrione several times before that ending sequence. sure jerked his head a few times, at any rate. but, damn... those mitrione kicks were pretty brutal in the early going.

I didn't see much of TUF 16 or The Smashes, but I think there's good prospects from TUF 13-15 and TUF Brazil.

I do think there might be some "hidden gems" to be found for the relatively newer and lighter weight classes. I mean Dodson is fighting for a title coming up. Dennis Bermudez has looked alright.

But 155 and above? I think the explosion of MMA has picked the talent clean there. I'd be shocked to see any legit contenders come through TUF in those weight classes.

I think Johnson, Ferguson, Jury, Lawrence, Chiesa, and Cruickshank have some promise and then there's the MWs with some promise like Mutante, Sarafian, Bodao, and Serginho (hard to say since they haven't fought much in the way of quality opponents, though). Also, Nijem, Rio, and Iaquinta have a bit of promise.

  • .Nothing sweeter than seeing Meathead put away, another overrated bum from the TUF, if only Pat Barry lost as well I can't stand the dude ever since he let Cro Cop be-friend him in there fight than get subbed in embarrasing fashion.
  • Maybe next fight put Shane Del vs Meathead for loser leaves town match, Mike Pyle after getting trashed by Rory has come back very strong.
  • Brookins chin up hands down = althought Dustin did not impress me in that fight tho hes looked far better before but solid bounce back win.
  • I don't really see a bright future for any of the TUF winners in ethier shows tbh, Whitkar has the most potential due to being a super athlete but other than that yawn.

Hendrix just KOed Kampmann/Fitch and Diaz is coming off a loss in which he was outclassed by Condit how is he getting a title shot? Did Hendrix break his hand or something punching Kampmann. This is not quiet on the same level as Chael getting a title shot vs Jones but wtf is going on with this match making.

Losing your last fight and talking a lot of shit is now the way to earn a title shot in the UFC.

when nick goes off the tracks somewhere along the line, hendricks will be right there to step in for him. problem solved, and not a thing for any diaz fan on earth to complain about.

GSP already has all the tools to beat nick IMO, so hopefully he's spending at least 50% of his camp training for johnny. i'm very unsure whether GSP has the right game to beat johnny. all it takes is one opening or one mistake...

GSP vs Diaz will go exactly like Bendo vs Diaz.

Hendricks is an easy fight for GSP after the 1st round. Many think Koscheck beat him, GSP will be much harder fight for Johnny.

maybe. but a big difference between kos and GSP is that kos will look to throw thunder shots on the feet and can withstand anything up to a truck being smashed over his head before he's knocked out. hendricks had to be very careful himself not to get knocked out when fighting kos.

against GSP, that concern is very much lessened. georges has a great jab and some nice kicks, but johnny should be able to let loose more freely. like i said, all it takes is one mistake by georges and johnny can knock him in to next week. meanwhile, GSP's real bread and butter is the takedown and GnP, something johnny will be highly resistant at as an extremely accomplished wrestler in his own right.

of course i'm just talking as a fan and it's not like i've spent huge amounts of time examining footage of these guys, but i still think that hendricks is going to be a legit, very dangerous challenge for georges. and yea, it seems that's always the case with him, but it's also a testament to how deep the WW division is IMO.

GSP opens as 4:1 favorite over Diaz. Seriously does anyone even think Nick has a chance here or is this just people wanting to see him get his ass whooped?
