    Anyone with eyes can see that was a perfectly legal 1 to 5:30 elbow.

    Mazzagati is can and should’ve stopped it 20 seconds sooner anyway.

    Matt Hamill's weakness as a fighter was his soft head and lack of equinibrinium.

    Can't put him as the GOAT, but you cant deny he is in the top 3. Dude was special and had probably the greatest prime a fighter has ever had.

    He had a habit of not listening to his coaches during fights.

    You can’t go rogue in the octagon.

    He did beat Bisping by decision, but was robbed 100%

    The hammer would have been a scary dude to fight if you weren't prepared for his wrestling. He developed a great jab while fighting in the ufc too. He could just chase guys around the cage with that jab.

    I dont blame him for retiring. He took a good beating from top light heavies toward the end of his career.
