    i wouldnt call the stoppage of nick diaz impressive, diaz got cut and they said he couldnt continue, noons ducked him ever since.

    Noons didn’t look great vs Amade but that may have been due to the broken foot plus inactivity. Hopefully SF doesn’t rush to give him top billing and lets him go through a couple of solid but not top guys. Jorge Gurgel would be a great fight for him.

    Karl is not as good as he thinks, or others say. Sure he can strike, but as we all know, one-dimensional fighters are a thing of the past
