We're about records here, not fight quality.


And yes, Pepey is pretty popular in Brazil from what I've seen. Gets a nice pop at the weigh ins and walk outs. Although popularity will only get you so far when you're not a good fighter. If he wasn't a TUF Brazil finalist, I think he would've seen the door after the Sicilia loss.


Also for the Sean Shelby/Joe Silva scuttle, Silva was the same guy who cut Nik Lentz after one loss (since Do Bronx was a no contest). Far from perfect here.

Figueroa gets his arse kicked every time he enters the cage, and should be 1-5 as his decision win over Caceres was a complete travesty. He hasn't won in the UFC for what, 2yrs or something?

Pague has also not won in the UFC for the same amount of time and although some felt he beat Jabouin, 1-5 is a terrible record and much better fighters have been released on better form.

Fair enough, he wasn't UFC material IMO. Out with the old, in with the new.

why are some people hating on Lahat before he fucking debuts? he is a 7-0 prospect that trains at AKA. is it because he is from Israel?
