    I never thought I would see MG go for subs. I think he would be a BEAST if his grappling and ground game was as good as his striking.

    At a certain point you are who you are. Melvin is who he is. He's going to come out and bully you, and if you bully him back, he'll get discouraged and lose.

    I was impressed that he didn't get subbed 30 seconds after the fight hit the ground.

    Wow. People thinking he's going to one day show up and be a top-level fighter. Amazing.

    Overeem fan gets tired of hearing about this guy's potential.

    I heard Hardee's is hiring.
    Melvin's kicks looked great tonight, he look like a mini manhoef.

    He hit a few good reversals, which was impressive to see seeing as we assume Guillard is getting choked out by turtlenecks.

    He's an embarrassment to the UFC.

    I think he has been keeping a slow pace recently. He is best when using his speed

    I didn't understand why he just let Varner take him down against the cage and just laid there in the fetal position. I mean I understand why he did it, I just think it was dumb.

    I was. I haven't seen anyone shrug a shot off the bunghole that easily since Tito's girlfriend.

    What? He looked winded in round 2 and aside from his little burst at the end of round 3, he was done for.

    I don't even think he cares anymore. He's just fighting because he has nothing else to do.
