    Hopefully he gets some KSW time, maybe a little Desert Force or something, and then right back to the UFC.

    Cocky, arrogant, underwhelming, overrated. Maybe he can pick up some skills in the minor leagues.

    Hopefully he takes his delusional fanboys too of about a whole 4 people here.

    Good

    Overhyped, disrespectful and on a losing streak

    Interesting. Maybe he just decided not to re-sign?

    Never seen that before, thanks for the video.

    What was said beforehand because Hardy was talking about he's never seen that before?

    Surprising cut, their are a lot of fighters who are still in the UFC that don't have half his ability or potential, but maybe he needed this to help him reach his potential, I think he'll be back after 2 or 3 fights.

    Backstrom was knocked out. In his post-concussion haze he thought the fight had been stopped early (due to flash ko). He apologized soon after, chuckling at how dumb that was. He simply didn't know what he was doing.

    Backstrom kept his weight very low will do well in the future to fight a weight up in future fights. The lining of your brain cushion is the last thing to rehydrate. Fully-Hydrated Backstrom could be a quality contender.

    He's young, he'll come back.

    Atleast we still have Makwan.

    Bad cut, he's good. Cut regional level talent instead. Soriano was bad, as well. Young guys with potential. As was Sass.

    I remember when everyone said that Conor was ducking him and he would end Conor's hype train.



    Lol
