    Epic fight Gargamel vs He-man

  2. Mc says:

    Looked like feijao hit Kyle in the back of the head about 10 times.

  3. maurice says:

    i fuckin hate to say it. but i honestly think thomson won. damn. melendez best round was 2. then the momentum began to shift when thomson began to turn it up. i actually thought thomson had moments to finish gilbert on the feet in the 5th.

    Barnett First Round Sub!

    • Joop says:

      hahaha hardly…barnett is a pussy if he cant get you on the ground…JDS destroys em both

      • Tsimanga says:

        Oh yeah, tough guy Joop… Josh Barnett is a real pussy. Another keyboard warrior who’s only fight they’ve ever been in was in a video game.

      • Joop's Dad says:

        You call real fighters pussies? What are you 12? Go back to your video games son. I am dissapoint.

        Maybe when you grow a ball hair and fight in real life instead of your WoW you will know what it is like to be a real pussy when you re getting the shit kicked out of you.

        BTW, you are adopted. Thank god.

      • Robert says:

        I was wrong But Josh is not a pussy.

        • Joop says:

          pussy relative to a fighter – i’m commenting on a fighter – i’m not saying i could beat him!

          Barnett has horrid stand up but amazing ground skills and a good chin…if he can’t take ya down hes gonna lose that simple!

          now back to WoW….

        • Joop says:

          Also a lame excuse of he broke his hand was the first thing out of his mouth! His excuse should have been he wasn’t on roids (or maybe i spoke too soon)!

          DC broke his hand too but didn’t cry about it in the post fight interview!

  5. Bobby Johnson says:

    Great five rounder in Melendez vs. Thompson – decision could’ve gone either way. I thought Thompson showed a lot of class in defeat and I hope he gets another title shot soon.

  6. Trevor says:

    Wow, Cormier is sickkkk. Look out heavyweights, he’s legit

  7. Dude says:

    Cormier looked awesome! Gained a lot of respect for Thompson very classy
