you people gloating over this shitfest fight are retarded this is a dark day for MMA when these two mid level middleweights can be passed off as a main event anywhere not even BAMMA would be so bold as to slap the English across the face with it

This matchup was inevitable. Who else currently is available to fight at 185? Sonnen, Okami, Maia, Belfort, Stann, Bisping, Akiyama, Belcher, Palhares, both Millers, etc. all have booked fights or TUF.

 I'm baffled that anyone thinks this is a dangerous match for Munoz. Especially in a five-rounder. Yes, he could get Leben-ed....but he has better wrestling and awesome GNP. He's not going to stand and wang any longer than he has to.
