Ricci needs to work on his takedown defense. I hope they keep him around and let him fight at his actual weight class.

True. But that was only his second semi-decent fight in the UFC.

Yeah but he didnt do anything with it. His chokes were awful and his punches were pillows. Hes a good wrestler and he did what he had to do to win but hes a dime a dozen in the UFC WW division.

I liked the GSP fight...Fitch was like the Terminator just absorbing punishment.

Yea, he won't really go anywhere. He'd have an ok shot to crack the top 10 in the LW division because I think he could handle the weaker guys, but in no way is he a title contender anywhere.

I'm just really disappointed. That was the fight I was looking towards the most... and it was just terrible. He spooned for 3 rounds. Wasnt even close to finishing the fight at any point. He didnt win... he just didnt lose.

His skillset is just extremely limited. I don't think he has the footwork or speed for LW.

He got his ass kicked but the GSP fight was good. He was also desperately trying to finish BJ and completely dominated him in the third round.

I'm not a fan of his at all but it seems like he's being more aggressive lately.

I think Fabricio Werdum would love to beat up Roy again.

If Cain tries to box with JDS..its over. Cain needs to try and get it to the ground and maybe we'll see JDS's bjj.

I'm a fan of Roy, but he's not in Werdum's class. I think Werdum should be ranked in top 4 in HW class.

Valid claim. The hard part is that those are two deep divisions.

I doubt we will. Gonzaga got JDS down for like .5 seconds and JDS' TDD has improved a ton since then.

Dana is likely cheering for Matt tonight.

He's been trying to get rid of "the belly" for years.

I agree

JDS
Reem
Cormier
Werdum
Cain

I don't consider a win over Big Foot a big accomplishment.

Imagine him telegraphing those takedowns against a guy like Cerrone or Pettis..he'd be decapitated

if Roy loses tonight the Robertsons can hire him up to make duck calls on tv.
