Holy shit ..... Gilbert Melendez .. Diego Sanchez fight was epic. Gil out pointed dude, but Diego fearless fighting style made this easily one of the greatest and most entertaining fights ever.

Only able to catch the title fight.

Heard Diego/Gil was an instant classic. Some even saying the GOAT for fights.

Cain is too much for JDS right now.

JDS caught him a couple times early, but Cain methodical with those strikes knees, and suffocating him. He's relentless.

Holy shit. Cain drilled JDS, knocked him down. Withstood a little bit of onslaught, got up somehow. Got caught another couple of times, but didn't budge then.

Had to ditch my feed as it was giving me some potential PC issues.

Heard Herb did JDS a favor by not stopping it.

I'm no doctor but I have see a lot of men who are too tough for their own good and JDS is one of them. He was out and this should stopped.

Thought it was a good non-stoppage seeing how JDS recovered. And Herb Dean's known for that no?

Eh, he was still defending himself. Looked dazed. Though it did happen so fast.


Surprised, he'd say it in middle of it.

True.

Again, I didn't see it, just going off what I'm reading.

Appreciate the linkage, Diss, but I'm going to withhold.

Had a laptop crash before when watching Aldo/Mendes and had some other issues in the past. I've gotten better avoiding them, but once something fishy happens (like it did tonight) I just chill out.

Plus, sounds like barring a miracle, Cain is walking away with an easy win.

Wow, JDS went for guillotine and hurt himself falling on his face. And Cain took advantage. That's it.

Ah, that sucks. No worries. Yeah, with that happening. Better off not.

Time to start the debate, if it hasn't already been started/confirmed: Is Cain the GOAT for heavyweights?

Most logical, as we said. Intriguing fight too, stylistically. Werdum loves ground. He's gotten better in stand up. I watched last 3 fights last night of Werdum after talking about it. Looked much improved battering Nelson (who can't be knocked out it seems), Russow, and Nog, and am becoming more of a fan. I liked him before. First time, I remember watching him was making Fedor tap in triangle choke.

Of course, Cain will probably win haha.



If he's not the greatest, he's well on his way. Almost feel like his loss to JDS was cuz it's rare to fight well your first fight back off injury.

Cain is definitely in the argument for greatest HW ever. That being said, I would still rank Fedor over him. I believe Cain has only defended the HW belt twice with tonight being his second title defense win.

Emelianenko received acclaim from major publications, including Sports Illustrated,[9] USA Today,[10] and Sherdog.com.[11] Many analysts, fighters, and experts consider Emelianenko to be the greatest mixed martial artist of all time.[12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21] He remained undefeated for nearly a decade, during which time he was considered the best heavyweight fighter in mixed martial arts,[22] including notable wins over 5 former UFC champions and 5 former K-1 champions.
