With how much criticism this fight got and having seen Carmont's fights with Lawlor and Larkin I was expecting this to be awful, but it wasn't nearly as bad as some people made it out to be. And I'm definitely not a fan of Carmont in the least, not after those fights and I think his nickname is ridiculous, but this fight just wasn't that bad. Carmont was very active in trying to pass Costa's guard and was pretty successful in doing so, and he landed a decent amount of good shots from the top and tried to set up submissions when he had the chance. He certainly wasn't just laying on top not trying to do anything like people made it sound like. A lot of you people seem to think it should be easy for someone to land big ground and pound or get submissions on good UFC fighters like Costa. Also, Big John standing them up when Carmont was in his half guard for like 20 seconds was beyond ridiculous.
