Don’t know how this managed to be as boring as it was. So promising. The main card sucked compared to the prelims. Sonnen vs Bitchping sucked, Evans vs Davis sucked, Maia vs Weidman really sucked. When the stadium boos more than they cheer the entire night you know the fights sucked.

not a bad fight. Divas looked slow compare to rashad, rashad’s punches looked much faster.

This is why wrestlers should be band for fighting each other. I don’t like sweaty man p***. (lol)

Any ways it goes. Jones is going to get more cannon fodder practice.

davis looked terrible, i dont think rashad would do so well against jones. jones would destroy him.

I stopped viewing this half way through, I think last time we got spoilt in Brazil.

I hate when I see posts like @tempted. Clearly doesn’t practice mma or appreciate the sport. Just a dumb fan looking for knockouts.

This card was intense. I hope Phil comes back stronger. He’s awesome. Rashad looks hungry.

Good job Rashad, showed the young buck that you’re just on a different level of ability. I still want to see BOTH these contenders mix it up against the Champion. Then I want to see Jon Jones go up in weight and test his abilities like Champion Silva does!

weak performances by both. neither one deserves to fight jones i think they should go through the ranks again and give jones some quality opponents.

Davis is a tough dude, but he was outclassed here. Rashad looked really good (I know a lot of people will say this is a boring fight, but it was a very frenetic fight, actually.) and both of them showed amazing conditioning.
Rashad completely dominated Davis on the stand up and bullied him on the ground (2 crucifixes!!).
The only question now is, can he do the same against an even taller, faster, and stronger fighter with 10x the striking skills if compared to Davis?

The main fights were a snoozefest. Davis is way overhyped because of his wrestling accolades. Rashad had the edge in experience. Either one will NOT fare well in the Boneyard with Jones. I give a pass to Weideman for taking his fight with 11 days notice though.

Two damn boring leg humpers.

I’m very fond of Davis and now feeling upset. He seems to lack aggression and killer instinct, not sure if one can develop that by trainning and it is sad, because the guy is a freak of nature and has all the potential in the world.. I don’t know what to think about his future either, perhaps he will remain the best of the non-the best group or something like that? Sad

FailSonnen Says, in 1-29-2012 at 21:08:57 from    

yeah I agree cigronne…he doesn’t have that aggressive speed and murderous intent. His striking did not look heavy and his kicks were slow. And getting caught in the crucifix twice was embarrassing after all that smack talk back n forth.
I was even saying to my friends before the fight that he doesn’t even really seem like a ‘fighter’ more like a really well conditioned super athlete thats just competing. Sometimes thats not enough.

8:56 “Roseanne Barr was in the crowd and yells “KICK ARSENIO’S ASS!” HAHAHA

Rashad good luck trying to beat jones…hes probably laughing his ass off at your performance…ring rust damn sure showed. they should put jones against Dan before rashad…or rashad vs Dan

Davis would be many times better if he went to a pure boxing gym and a world-class kickboxing gym. They definitely have boxing gyms in San Diego and the LA area has one of the best kickboxing gyms in the world; if it’s still there.
