Yikes, I read someplace that he was winning the round then got dropped. Poor Chuck. I think he still may have 1 or 2 more fights in him though.

Maybe if he uses his wrestling and keeps it on the ground. I think he would rather retire at this point. His chin can not take shots. Not at all.

He has this skill? Also, I would like to point out that there is no smiley for "shocked", there's "eek" but that's as close as I could get and it didn't seem appropriate.

Chuck was not a stud wrestler in college but he was pretty damn good. He has always used it as defense to keep the fight where he wanted it. I am sure if he wanted to he could apply it as offense. He doesn't want to though. He wants to knock people out with an overhand right and his chin is begging him to stop. He has had his brain go off like a light switch in 3 out of 4 of his last fights.

Chuck should stop fighting. Tito, who has never learned to set down on his punches, and so has never been a KO threat, was handpicked for Chuck, but pretty much all of the top fighters now have much better punching technique than does Tito. It's ironic that a Chuck turns out to have such a weak chin, but if he keeps fighting, he is going to get seriously damaged. It may have happened already. That's three losses in a row by KO, and If Dana is a real friend, he won't let Chuck continue.

I'm really glad that Franklin won. He is a really good ambassador for our sport. Well spoken, educated, even tempered, and disciplined in his training and his personal life (by all accounts).

Anyone who has ever rolled realized that he was not close to being out at that point, that he was actually pretty safe - the choke was being incorrectly applied, and was, at best, a weak crank - and that he was chilling out getting ready for an escape or to tire out the opponent's arms. Why is Yves Lavigne even still a ref. "He's out!" Man, I should say that to a ref when I have no chance of finishing the submission but can open my mouth. The ref in the next fight in the prelims, who mistook a shifting of the feet during an armbar attempt as a attempted upkick to a downed opponent, was an idiot as well.

Occasionally such amazing photographs come around. This one is spectacular:

Spectacular, yet also, grotesque. [/vaclav]

Great event with the exception of the Ben Rothwell fight. Fuck that fat bastard, please stop fighting until you learn how to do things other than laying down and breathing heavily.

The Carlos Condit/Rory Macdonald match was excellent! Tough stoppage for Rory, but I could see judges possibly giving Condit a 10-8 round in the last frame.

Martin Kampmann looked very good against Paulo Thiago as well. Totally out-grappled the grappler.
