I was seriously hoping for Saunders to wreck Speers, but apparently he's three brain cells didn't register that his arm was fucking breaking, lol.
Am i the only one who thinks that Tommy "the Farmboy" Speers is the worst nick name in mma today?

I trained under Tim for about a year at Gladiator's Academy and i have never seen him get taken down so easily. I've watched him and Doug Fournet (who also trains there) grapple and Doug had a hard time with him, though Tim is a lot taller than Doug. Maybe wrestlers are his kryptonite. And damn, I'm about to be as old as Riddle and am no where close to as good as he is. Though i do at least have my driver's license...

Ahhh, I see, Danzing years-old, seasoned abilities and Speer's natural Gigantopecus strenght were the masterpiece of Hughes' coaching. Yeah Vince, I got you.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

No argument there. Hughes was clearly a better judge of fighter potential than Serra I think.

George greeknamewithtoomanyvolwes and Danzig were both big prospects. Serra picked his friend and the best man from his wedding.
That doesn't show better scouting on Hughes's part.

Yah but remember when Hughes got in his head.. talking about how Serra better pick him up quick? That was pretty funny and showed some good strategy with the head games. I hope Hughes and Serra fight soon.

Serra was going to pick his best friend first no matter what.
Hughes really had nothing to do with it.

I like Rampage and all, but the previews look like he is going to flip out on his team- that can't be good. It's also a little early to flip out- two matches- one of them very close- it doesn't seem like he's giving them much of a chance.
Whether Hughes can pick them is somewhat negligible and Danzig said that "I've had bad training before", which must include Hughes and not just his teammates.
Speaking of Danzig, does anyone remember the clip of him sparring where he just punches the guy at will, including a jab, uppercut, hook combo that connects on every punch. Whenever I do that combo on the pads I think of that clip."Coffee is for Closers" GlenGarry Glenross

But why would you pick him first? You know Hughes didnt want him. Why not take the 2nd best fighter as your first pick?
