I feel bad for Joe. I've followed his career since he was an amateur, mostly through the fact that I used to hang out on the sssfighting forum with Bill Mahoney/Strong Machine. Joe's strength, IMO, has always been his slick and fast submissions despite the fact that he also has KO power. Whenever he's faced guys that have more experience he's still been able to pull out victories with surprising subs. (Anyone remember that win... think it was ammy... by flying heel hook?) But against Florian that just wasn't going to happen.
You can tell he tried, though, with those two heel hook/knee bar attempts in round one. And then, in one of his mount escapes he went for another surprise heel hook! Awesome. But Florian's Jits was just too good. In fact, I think Joe would've done better looking to stand and try for another KO ala Pulver. *shrug* Either way, as someone said, he's only going to get better. Good luck, Joe!
And way to go to my boy Matt Hammil. Finished the fight. Continues to improve. Deceptive power. Controls the takedowns. He ain't top tier yet, but he keeps on winning!
The Alexander stoppage was not early. After that last punch on the ground, his arms flew open and he got that frozen pose, K'dTFO look. The Karo stoppage on the other hand was early. I mean, jeez, give a guy a chance to defend himself. Getting rocked is going to necessitate a moment to pull it together, but doesn't mean you can't defend!

I take back all the **** i've said about gray maynard, btw. That boxing was pretty damn slick.

He's an all around good guy too.

Is the idea to stop the jumping elbow spike that you see in Tony Jaa movies or something? I just don't see a lot of situations standing where a downward elbow spike becomes suddenly more dangerous than anything else....

Elbows thrown in this manner also work quite well in real life altercations.
