    Definitely wasn't expecting to see a contender emerge out of this fight, but one might have

    ME and my friend were texting about the fight, first punch he threw I txt'd... "Damn his boxing is really crisp, and is looking MAD FAST." right after I sent that the fight was OVER.

    Yeah, he could be a real force at WW. If he can continue to make the weight cuts I will enjoy his addition to WW division.

    That was some of the best pure boxing i've seen in MMA from Larkin. He really looked excellent. He sure made the right decision to move down. The bigger contenders at MW could wear him out but I think he's a legit threat to most anyone at WW.

    Looked really good. Though he puts his head down while backing away.

    Larkin looked great. I still remember when he got robbed by Francis Carmont. Hopefully he keeps winning .

    RIVERSIDE, MOTHERFUCKER!

    He looked great, so much quicker at 170. I'm stoked for another potential contender, he could very well crack the top ten.

    Never paid much attention to the guy. Thought he came to the ufc due to the merger...not talent. Anyone who watched that should realize the guy is talented. I want to watch him fight again soon

    Coming off 3 straight losses then wins 1 and now he's a contender.

    Sherdog logic for you

    While I agree with you... I think most sentiments are only enthusiasm over another good WW. Don't get your panties in a wad.

    The fact that he has a solid win against the current champ probably helps.
