    Just put up on The UFCs Y / T page.

    I had forgotten about this one. Nice one-hitter quitter right hook by RDA.

    I remember this knockout. I had started to root for George S after initially not liking him but by the end of the Ultimate Fighter you got to see more and see that he wasn't always a prick that was just how they edited it, I guess.

    This fight seemed like an abrupt end to his forward momentum.

    He had some near top level BJJ for the division and he had a size advantage over most his opponents...
    He was damn good but his striking....he fought so damn stiff.. It was effective but damn he fought like the tin man... It really started showing when he started fighting some better strikers at LW.
    Although Siver was probably on the Juice when they fought

    The sport passed him by quickly after he beat Lauzon.. Not hating BTW. Dudes a warrior ..mad respect for his career.

    Yeah GSot was still a big favorite here even when he got badly tooled by Siver one fight before. People were having him or Evan Dunham as their next champs at lw.

    Things change so fast that the context of these fights gets lost pretty easily.

    Damn. It's hard to believe that G sot was once on a 7 fight winning streak in the ufc's lightweight division. His downfall was fast and hard.

    His striking really improved from that day to today. He threw wild punches more before but now he is really well determined striker.

    Why the fuck did he throw an extra punch after a ref being on him for a second at least?
