    I thought his hype was over when Fitch beat him. But he just got knocked out cold by a grappler who hasn't finished a fight in over 4 years. It's defiantly over now.

    There are a lot of fun fights for him, but his hype train is derailed.

    Still in. Fuck the fickle fans jumping ship from fighter to fighter at the drop of a hat. Erick will be back kicking ass, better than ever.

    Definitely has the breaks put on it. It's obvious he has a lot of potential but he fights way too wrecklessly. If he fixes that he's still top 10 level. Whether he will or not is anybody's guess.

    Yes. I think we gave Silva a pass for the Fitch loss since he gassed. Gassing once can be considered an aberration. But after he gassed again tonight, it's a trend. Combine the gassing with getting KTFO by a boring grappler and his hype train is off the rails.

    His suspect chin was proven guilty.

    DHK isn't even in the top 10 yet but we see how he fought him tonight. I guess so, still an exciting fighter though

    Yep, we're sifting through the wreckage and getting a body count now.

    Erick was winning that fight pretty handily, but got overconfident. Shit happens. Even in a exhausted state the Dong rose to the occasion.

    Suspect chin??? LOL, no
    That blow was solid. No shame in that catching you.
