|---->(this fight is showing up on mmaplayground)
I'm really impressed with Team UK, both of their fighters are in the Welterweight final.
I'm disappointed Nick Osipczak isn't in the final, I enjoyed him including this KO.
YouTube - Nick Osipczak Knocks Out Mark Miller (TUF Season 9)
Was surprised his primary fighting style is kung fu, does anyone know what other systems he practices, BJJ, Submission wrestling?

I love that knockout!
Nick Osipczak said he'd done Kung-Fu for a couple of years, then started MMA and got his ass whooped "by every guy in there" and never looked back. So I guess he's got 2-3yrs of "proper" MMA on top of national championship level Kung Fu....so maybe 5-6 yrs of MA training total?
He was my favourite too, and I'm gutted he isn't in the final. I wonder if he'll get a craic at the UFC anyway. Dana White seemed impressed even in his loss against DMJ.
Did you seriously call a split-decision?

Stevenson (this guys stock has dropped massively but he's quite good, if he shows up motivated, he wins)
Tibau by being a fighter
no, i never say something should have been a split. It drives me nuts when people think Unanimous decision means it wasn't a close fight. Hell a 30-27 across the board could be a close fight. It just means 1 guy barely did enough to take each round.

Well, at least you understand what it means.
I really hope Sanchez wins.
Oh man, what was that horrible looking thing growing out of the side of Stevenson's ear?
Damnit, the feed I was watching cut out halfway through the third round of the Diaz fight...
