    On a 3 fight losing streak, they most probably would have booted him out of the UFC If he failed for the 4th time.

    He's solid and I have been following him from Bellator. He was very misfortunate in all of his UFC fights, one of his fights was arguably a win (even Lauzon, his opponent in that one, agreed - much respect to him). Hoping to see a good run from him now or at least not some crazy losing streaks that don't match his talent and skills.

    Yeah, he's had a rough go in the UFC. Glad to see him finally get that W.

    I'm a big held fan and have been watching him for years but he didn't win that fight.

    I thought he maybe should have gotten the nod over Lauzon though.

    As a LegLock fan, yes.

    he got robbed vs Lauzon. I like him but I don't see him having a whole lot of success

    Yeah, they could have awarded points to the other guy for his success in the stand-up, but that was a dire situation and Held needed that win badly.

    I'm not glad,he fought like an idiot =/ and arguably lost the first 2 rounds and imo did.I'm half glad because I like him but his performance compared to his potential/abilities was shit and hindered by his bad fight IQ yesterday.What a let down he was.

    He hasn't evolved at all since he was in Bellator. He should have stayed there. Great ground skills, lousy standup and sh*t fight IQ, as stated by @Kumason.

    Maybe it's because I've blown my ACL, but I find knee-bars completely disgusting, even nauseating. They take a year to recover from; & so, should only be done in the most desperate of circumstances. I feel leg-lock specialists are cowardly; especially those that go for them every fight, all fight. &, Marcin Held and Rousimar Palhares are the 2 most blatant I can think of.

    He barely passed a newcomer and gassed terribly in the middle of the fight- this doesn't look like promising future

    Glad he won but can't believe how gassed he was. He could hardly stand the last round
