Cool can't wait Barnett is awesome
Thanks for this post up, looking forward to it!
I wish Cavalcante vs. Vallie-Flagg was on the main card instead of Burrell but still, great card! Looking forward to it. Barnett has been my pick since the Grand Prix started and I'm not changing it now.
It was good I was real worried about Melendez Josh put him through the paces big time. The main event was equally great Cormier is outstanding. To me he's one of the smartest fighters in mma, sometimes when he has a round in the bag. He'll let the fighter push him to the cage and wrap up for the last minute of the round. His striking was so dead on compared to when I saw him at rage in the cage it unbelievable. So now he heads to UFC if some of you would kindly confirm I'm sure.
Have to admit, I have enjoyed watching Cormier in past fights and thought him being brought into the Grand Prix was a great idea. What I did not expect was how easily he handled Barnett. Big things are coming for that guy!
Agreed. Cormier has looked very impressive. Nobody's perfect though. I always like watching guys whose puzzle hasn't been solved yet. Somebody solves it, others exploit that weakness and that fighter ceases to appear invincible. Dos Santos is in the same boat at the moment.
Did anyone else think that Josh got robbed from a decision victory over Gilbert?
... I dunno, apart from the **** commentary, I just thought Josh did 'More' to win that bout. Don't get me wrong though it was close.
Loved Barnett/Cormier. Two of my favs.
Cormier's hands + his wrestling = big trouble for a lot of the hw division imo
