BTW, Anderson Silva would be 16 for 16 in UFC finishes if he didn't fuck around against Leites and Maia.

You can say "he's just that good". I choose to acknowledge different factors, such as timing and positioning.

I know I actually think that he is number 1 pound for pound right now.

The Sanguine Lord weeps!

One of the finest of His Chosen, Thomas Almeida, has become the first to join the ranks of The Fallen, those Chosen who have committed the Sin of Decision in Battle.

Lettuce pray that many finishes appease His thirst yet unslaked in Thomas's absence.

We are in agreement on that. I've had this dude at p4p #1 for at least six months.

True but I also think fighters are fighting more not to lose, than to win.

No incentive to finish (beyond Integrity and Pride) when you're up on the cards and there's 5 other dudes on the card who might get a bonus for doing the same thing.

Personally I'd like to see "POTN" bonuses be instituted ONLY for fights that are finished.
