    What a dreadful matchup. Somebody by decision.

    Paul Harris gave him his leg back?

    I don't know. Sometimes these wrestler/wrestler matchups turn into a firefight.

    Glad to see Pierce back, I'm a fan of his and hope he gets the win here, albeit not likely.

    About time Pierce came back.

    LaFlare is the type of guy that will make Pierce exciting.

    Or a sloppy kickboxing match.

    I was really hoping Pierce had retired.

    Good to hear he got a leg donor after all.

    Pierce has shined in these type of matchups before. Also had close decisions with Kos and Hendricks though not very exciting ones.

    LaFlare is going to pull out with an injury.

    LaFlare wins the first round
    Pierce wins the second
    A close third round

    Somebody by split and sherdog calls it a robbery.

    Yeah, because people like you don't know how to score fights. Rd 3 was CLEARLY Laflare's round.

    Awesome. I've been waiting for Pierce to get back. I think he takes it with a 2nd round T/KO.

    Why? He's a boring fighter and one of the many wrestle-boxers in the WW division. I didn't miss him though it's nice he's recovered from the Palhares fight.

    Yes, he's a wrestler-boxer. No, he's not boring. At all, really. Watch his body of work again before you cast judgment on the man. You'll be surprised how entertaining pretty much every fight he's had in the UFC has been. Even if he does have a pig nose (and he does).

    I hesitate to say wrestle-boxers are boring because a lot of them are awesome, but Pierce is not one of them. I've seen enough of his fights to not miss them. I hope he proves me wrong but I can't handle another fight with Goldie saying how he likes to grind opponents down with wall and stall.
