the jardine fight was the best. holy shit. alexander is going to clean up. i can't wait to see that dude fight again.
i'm also glad parisyan won. he's a solid fighter who's been plugging away for so long and never quite breaking into the super big time. maybe he'll get his title shot soon.
Agreed. I missed the fight, but was not at all surprised. Liddel has been on a tear for a while now, but Rampage dominated him in their first fight. There is some talk now about a match-up between Rampage and Dan Henderson. I suspect that would be a war...
It would be nice to see Parisyan get a title shot. He has already beaten Serra once, and it would make for a nice rematch. But GSP might get a shot at Serra first.
