wow, hell of a 4th round in melendez - thomson. looked like thomson had him all wrapped up for the rear naked choke, and melendez managed to chin block it for a minute, riding out the round...

EDIT: wow, close fight, close decision. not very satisfying since thomson was coming back strongly the last couple rounds and was also poked in the eye several times by melendez. too bad thomson spent too much time in the early fight feinting and bobbing and trying to counterpunch fruitlessly.

I hope Cormier wins just so that Josh Barnett can go away. MMA doesn't need him hanging around the top of that division.

loved that lightning jab barnett was throwing at the beginning of the fight, and now i know why he stopped throwing it- wrecked his hand. damn, that sucks.

still, cormier is awesome. lightning fast power shots, including leg kicks to the head, strong as a bull, relentless, agile... no real weakness other than height.

i hope both of these guys get in to the UFC ASAP...

Ones with his history? Nope. At least not among the top contenders. Look at the mess Overeem has brought to the UFC.

Cormier is super talented.

Both Barnett and Overeem are super talented fighter, so I don't care if they have drug tests or not. The UFC benefits from getting both guys cleaned up and fighting as they always put on exciting fights and are top ranked Heavyweights who can be serious threats to the title and the UFC can use that.
