    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Thoughts on last night:

    I said Stephens needed a bigger test, and Matt Brown provided it. His karate may be good, but just because you're a Machado by marriage doesn't give you a ground game. According to my brother, this fight is more proof that the Lord Thy God smites fauxhawks and blesses beards, he cites the victories of Rothwell and Jones in support. It was pointed out that Rashad also had a beard, but he stated that was not a true beard, only "facial hair of hypocrisy". When asked how to tell the two apart, he told the questioner that if you have to ask, rest assured anything that sprouts on your chin is Facial Hair of Hypocrisy
    Rashad does like to play patty cake during his fights, that's what he was doing when Lyoto knocked him out. Conclusion:

    Not even Rashad Evans can make Chi sau work.

    PS
    Is it just me or does Homineck look like a grey alien?

    I could be crazy wrong, but doesn't Jones have something like a twenty-yard reach advantage on Hendo? He'd need a trebuchet to get within range.

    I thought Rashad landing that head kick was awesome.

    In London, ESPN had it on 3AM-6AM. I went to bed. I checked the schedule today hoping it might be on tonight at a reasonable hour - hasn't happened for a while with ESPN - nor now, cos it's being repeated tonight, 2AM-5AM. Effers.

    I shall waiting until another repeat this week at a hopefully reasonable hour.

    Fingers crossed.

    :D

    Now lets give Rory a proper challenge, instead of some no name from England.

    Bigfoot Silva! Should be an interesting fight.

    I've been too wrapped up in the NHL playoffs to watch any MMA.
    But I'm glad Jones won..

    Hendo's Greco is on a level where, if he does as he's stated he prob. will, and keeps it close, his smaller frame won't automatically work to a disadvantage. His clinch/wrestling power, and obviously the H-bomb can do great things. Even against an unpredictable rangy giant of a guy in Jones.

    Jones has done wonders, and sealed himself as the guy to look at in the future, for many. One clean shot from Hendo won't change that, but it could Knock him TFO.

    Hendo, who put Bisping through the floor, and blacked out the legendary Fedor. Yeah...this guy, since he started trusting his right hand, is a threat to end it suddenly. Jones seems to pwn compact power, but Hendo is on another level with it.

    Jones has superb wrestling, but I think Dan is at the very very bottom of the LHW list (next to Jones himself), as to who's gonna get out-wrestled.

    Experience + compact power w/ an inside game + H bomb = possible win. I wouldn't be surprised if Hendo beats Jones, challenges and beats Anderson, and calls it a day. Not saying it'll happen, but it wouldn't shock me. Nothing he does surprises me any more.
