    Def Alan Belchar, he went to the ground with Paul Harris, and schooled him.

    While Nate's performance was impressive, I expected him to impress--but Belcher--with all the question marks due to his long layoff due to an eye injury-then going to the ground with Rousimar--and beating him at his own game--and trying for a twister--I was very impressed.



    Fans forget the Belcher, like Palhares, is also a BJJ blackbelt--since he tends to like striking. Anyway--mad props to Alan Belcher.

    Alan Belcher, without a doubt. He beat PH in his own game, a fit no one ever did before him. Lavar Johnson comes next, IMO. He brutally dismantled Barry and proved to a threatening force in HW. As for Nate, we all expected more or less that he'd come on top. Obviously, his win is very impressive...Expected though...

    Belchar was awesome, I thought he was going to finish with his own submission until he turned on the ground and pound



    Can't wait to see him fight again.

    Dennis Bermudez. He came back strong after getting his arm ripped off in the TUF final last season. He looked like a young Eddie Guerrero with all those slams.

    Pahlares is so over rated. Belcher could have just kept it standing and won, but it was good to see him win at his own game.

    Nate WILL be your new LW Champion very soon. I can onlyimagine what Edgar and Bendo were thinking....oh PHUCK!

    Diaz. He deserves a title shot asap. I think he more than likely beats Frankie and against Bendo it's 50/50.

    Agree with you but the fact of the matter is that it will be a long wait, bendo vs edgar dont fight 'til aug/sept time frame. If he waits,which is what he told Dana, that will be about a year plus of waiting without a paycheck...IMO if any fighter that thinks he's ready to fight for the belt then why wait if your that confident in yourself, especially he has to wait for a year....thats just not smart....what ya'll think...

    The only reason I disagree with that is because its about money. Yes he misses a fight during his wait, but he reserves a spot for the big show. Why risk that opportunity when your already there?

    that sounds like, "i wait for that titleshot, even when there is competition, witch i may have to face anyway when i got the belt. but i won't take that risk." that sounds not very confident to me. when u are a confident figther, who believes that he can beat anybody, then why wait to smash heads?

    all the winners did a great job and impressed me tonight, but nate keeps showing me he's every bit his brother's blood and mostly his heart. you just can't hurt these guys and that wears on you real quick. people are not underestimating them anymore.

    Belcher all night.



    IMO Lavar Johnson wasn't really impressive just shows he has decent, powerful boxing. He got taken down, mounted and was caught a couple of times an Amercana... by Pat Barry. That alone tells me how far he will go in the division, just imagine what Frank would have done to his arm.

    i voted for belcher, because he survived the nasty sub-attempts of palhares. when palhares was on his back, he really showed some huge holes in his defense. it seemed that he didnt know what to do at all

    I think Belcher looked amazing but honestly I feel like half of that fight is Belcher exposing Palhares as a one dimensional fighter and someone that I suspect from now on is solved.



    However Diaz fought Miller who is easily top 5 and had never been finished even if he was dominated by Benson, also the fight was close in the first round with Diaz winning the round but not by much and then the second round, holyshit what a round and Diaz submits the submission expect Miller, that is like if Palhares was a top 5 guy and Belcher beat him with a footlock. So after careful consideration that answer has to be Diaz.

    Belcher for sure. He's definitely got some vastly improved Ground and Pound, probably some of the best seen lately in MMA. That's the second time in a row he's finished a BJJ black belt in the first round with a beatdown administered inside their guard. Made both Jason MacDonald and Palhares look outmatched when he was dribbling their heads off the canvas.

    Looking great against an overrated opponent is nowhere near as good as looking great against a world class fighter which Diaz did in abundance. Dropped him, rocked him and subbed him within 2 rounds.



    Another fighter that impressed me was Elliot. Wild at times but great heart and was robbed IMO and fantastic to watch. Wasn't scared to try Matrix moves and very exciting to watch.
