Luke Rockhold ........is ONE dangerous man. Nobody in the middleweight can touch him now

Dave "the wizard" Hall............UFC TUF 22..........lethal just like Luke Rockhold.

and Connor Mcg.......possibly the biggest name now or ever in the UFC. The man is cocky and conceited but it all part of the winning formula.
Rockhold was NO JOKE. He did everything Weidman does, but better. And while I get that Herb Dean didn't want to stop a title fight with seconds left in a round, he should have stopped that fight. Rockhold teed off for like 25 seconds on Weidman's head.

So true. At certain points of that penultimate round, I thought Herb D. should, in the interests of public safety, stop the bout. Rockhold was like a man possessed , and there to do the business, as there were no excessive showing of goodwill toward his opponent. Neither did he go the route of taunting or playing mind games with Weidman.

What impressed me about Rockhold, was how at one point in the earlier rounds, when both were standing and engaged in holding for a short period. The fighter from Santa Cruz, would have none of it , and made it known to Weidman by moving out of the resting hold and landing a side kick to the head.

Rockhold is so good that I would not advise Chris Weidman to get in the ring with him again. He will kill him next time around. Just too athletic, quick, flexible and dynamic for Weidman to handle in the octogon. Weidman looked so ordinary and lacking in craft for most of the fight.

As for Connor Mcg., the young gorilla has arrived and will probably humiliate Jose Aldo next time around.

UCK, didn't expect Aldo to get smashed like that.

Hall, wow, the thing that impressed me about him is the way he beat the cr@9 outta his opponent on the ground. Hall is a high level grappler.....but very active on the ground with strikes, no loafing, impressive.

Amazing. In the time it takes to look away to dip a tortilla chip the fight was over. Lots of surprises latey in MMA and boxing too.
