    the two don't have to be mutually exclusive. i don't see desparation equating to something illegal. a legal kneebar can still be desparate action by a fighter who was getting his face pounded. mir's kneebar was desparate, but it was also smart and clean.

    haven't seen any floating around. if i don't see any soon, i'll make some from the fight once i download it. http://www.mmaweekly.com/absolutenm/templates/dailynews.asp?articleid=6259&zoneid=2 i realize the HW division is bare right now, but Mir doesn't deserve a title shot after beating Hardonk & Lesnar. he was destroyed by Vera before those 2 fights. in my opinion, the winner of Werdum/Vera deserves a shot before Mir

    yeah foreign judges reward submission attempts way more than they do in the US. just because you have top position doesn't guarantee you a victory overseas. i like that as well, gets rid of so many lay-n-pray victories Diaz isn't in the tournament, his bout was title eliminator, he should be fighting Mach Sakaurai for his title at an upcoming event. the only thing i don't like about DREAM tourney is that its only 2 rounds. Alvarez/Hellboy match needed a 3rd round.

    HDNET is airing the 2nd round of DREAM's Lightweight Grand Prix at 3am(est). pretty good fight card: Lightweight Grand Prix Second Round (16-Man tournament): -Tatsuya Kawajiri (#3 Lightweight in the World)* vs. Luis Buscape -Mitsuhiro Ishida (#5 Lightweight in the World)* vs. Caol Uno -Joachim Hansen (#10 Lightweight in the World)* vs. Eddie Alvarez Non-Tournament Bouts: -Jason Miller vs. Katsuyori Shibata -Nick Diaz vs. Katsuya Inoue -Melvin Manhoef vs. Kim Dae Won -Daisuke Nakamura vs. Bu Kung Jung -Takeshi Yamazaki vs. TBA can't wait to see Hellyboy's fight against Alvarez, those two don't know how to give anything but 100%. should be a stream or two floating around if anyone's going to be up around that time.

    thats a good way of putting it. the fights have been good because the fighters are pretty close in terms of overall skill, but as a whole, the quality of fighters in the house just isn't that impressive.

    to be honest, this appears to be the worst group of fighter assembled on TUF so far. every fighter is gassing and they're only going 2 rounds. i don't see anyone on the show so far that has a chance of making a dent in the UFC's MW division.

    u got something personal against Davis?:laugh: he's on a nice streak, but i need to see him fight someone in the top 10. he has some dangerous hands, but GSP is in a "tito ortiz" type of mode right now, where he's not standing with anyone, he goes in and immediately goes for the takedown and wins via ground and pound. Davis bjj is good, but not good enough to stop GSP's ground and pound. MW division has a few more faces for title shots than you may think. I don't think he's quite ready yet, but I could Maia being fast tracked. The winner of Almeida/Cote will be on a short list for title shots. Bisping will probably get a shot if he beats Leben and one more fighter. Franklin fought @ 205 for a few fights, not to get after Franklin. he dropped to 185 because UFC wanted him to be the face of that division

    Rich Franklin was not winning the standup in the 2nd fight. he got in a couple more shots against Silva, but they didn't do any damage. Silva had a couple of flurries on franklin in the 1st round, and he landed the spinning back kick that landed flush to Rich's gut. Rich looked better in the 2nd fight, but in no way was he winning the stand-up

    Machida already beat him. i don't think Franklin will be that successful at 205. Franklin's main attribute at 185 was that he was physically bigger than almost everyone he faced. at 205 he loses that advantage. he's a well-rounded fighter, but beating any big names at 205 to be honest.

    alligator i believe. he's does some training with Extreme Couture. he's already one of the two or three best bjj in the world, so if he rounds out his game, he could be a force

    i didn't think Aoki would win, but i'm glad he did. he's one of my favorite fighters out there. gotta respect any fighter brave enough to rock the rainbow-tights also Dennis Kang lost via triangle choke. this dude was once considered a threat to Anderson Silva, hope he gets back on track soon, because he's an exciting fighter.

    i believe this fight happens live in a couple of hours (4am est) so far i haven't been able to find a stream for it yet. since its only being shown live in Japan, its hard to find a source to stream it.

    Rashad will finish Irvin in the 2nd. Irvin has a very poor takedown defense and is not really a threat to submit anybody. Rashad will take him down at will. i expect to see Rashad finish this fight similar to the way he finished Jason Lambert, ground and pound.

    gotta give Joe Silva credit for throwing a card like that together on a relative short notice. not a weak fight on the main card. since there aren't any 5rd title fights, they should be able to show more than the guaranteed 5 fights. They definitely should show Marquardt/Leites, that should be a great fight

    if i was Alves i would immediately come out with leg kicks to try and kill some the power in Hughes drive-through takedowns. if i was Hughes, i would practice catching leg kicks for the takedown. Alves has improved his takedown defense, but this is still Matt Hughes. if it stays standing, Hughes could be embarrassed, as his standup has not improved at all over the years.

    a premier K-1 fighter for the last few years. great striker, who's had mixed results transitioning to MMA. i think he'll KO CroCop though as for the new UFC 85 main event: it all depends on Alves' takedown defense. if it stays standing, Alves will KO hughes. Alves has some of the most brutal leg kicks in MMA. he has shown a poor takedown defense though. this fight ends one of two ways, Hughes by decision, or Alves by KO/TKO

    they'll probably do a co-main event deal. werdum vs. vera is strong enough to stand alone.

    yeah that dude could've won that fight, he had Credeur out on his feet and took him down instead of standing with him. his limited fight experience definitely showed as he virtually ignored his corner for the entire fight. overall, i'm not seeing much quality from this group of fighters. this doesn't appear to be a strong class overall. on another note Irvin has been confirmed as Evan's opponent at UFC 85
