    I think anyone on this forum can whip CM Punk's ass.

    I think you are right. Hes apparently a bjj blue belt but i didnt see a blue belts skill level. Judging on him opening his guard all the time and his weird scissor leg position he kept going into. Jackson could have passed so many times. Im happy punk went the distance but hes still out of his depth and i would have rathered see blaydes fight overeem.

    All the decisions were bizarre. I was wondering what the judges were seeing that I wasn't. Not that I was unhappy about the decision or completely disagree with them. I just thought the scores would be different. A lot of fights I thought would be closer and more of a split decision went unanimous.

    Yeah. Only thing stopping me is the fact that I don't have the $$$ to take time off work and travel all the way across the country just for devil to dip out or something. I'm gonna try and make it on September when Michael is there, because my finances should be doing a lot better by then, and at that point I'll have another reason to be there too.

    I think Yoel would have won the decision if he would have actually fought in the first round. The tough guy, get beat on, Rocky movie shtick is what lost it for him. If he would have just thrown some strikes, it would have kept that round closer.

    I don't know what the plan was there. Was he just trying to tire him out then thought he would knock him out in the late rounds? If so, bad plan.

    And that Overeem finish was pretty ugly. He needs to step to the side now.

    CM Punk looked like a fight that you can see at Buffalo Wild Wings after the fights are over and everyone thinks they know MMA now.
