 I dont mind Phil Im sure he's cool and all but if the UFC is considered the pinnacle of mma, he shouldnt be there. And NO its NOT always an exciting fight, lately its been him gettin beat badly in non-competetive fashion.

Why Baroni vs Lawler at 185 never happened, or why he never fought Wanderlei in Pride at 205, I will never understand.
