    He's 3-0 this year all first round finishes by ko or Tko and he seems to be getting better (especially his Stand up) I think he should fight Mike Pierce next that would be a great fight,there both well rounded and there both on 3 fight winning streaks

    Missed the fight but I love the dude. Almost shit my pants when he got rocked by an invisible shot in the Neer fight.

    His fight with Head was very good Pyle gets rocked and then comes back to beat Head it's less then 2 minutes but it's good

    Man, he's had a great year. Him and Matt Brown. Yeah, I vote for Mike Pierce vs. Mike Pyle next. Both are at least in the top 20 by now and Pyle presents an interesting style matchup.

    Yeah, side note: I think Quicksand is one of the best fighter nicknames out there. Perfect for a guy with a slick triangle choke.

    It's relevant and not corny or overplayed. Young fighters take note.

    Been a fan of Pyle for a long time. Glad to see him doing so well. I hope he can continue to improve. His had movement is something that he needs to work on. He had ko shots on his last two opponents but was eating some hard shots before he landed. Against guys like Brown, that will not work.

    Mullet power for the win!

    I don't want to see him vs. Pierce (or anyone vs. Pierce to be honest), put him against Jay Hieron if he's okay with a long layoff or maybe Swick if he wants a fight sooner.

    Pyle should fight the winner of Silva/Hieron.

    Pyle and Heiron are really good friends, trained together for years at Couture's...

    Wow, dude is smart fighter. He found out something that worked and executed. That's why other fighters always praise him.

    I don't see him challenging for the belt anytime soon, but he's a very accomplished fighter.
