110 shots in 25 minutes means you were boring as fuck to watch

Interesting that a lot of people don't like the small people. I know that many of you like the 135lbs, but not 125lbs?I don't know maybe the UFC should have opted to give females this division?

Anyone that's complaining about the flyweights and Mighty mouse are simply not mma fans. Go watch bar fights or something. JoeB and MM put on a hell of a fight and was entertaining all 5 rounds. If you don't think Demetrious Johnson wasn't fighting or have any power take a look at JoeB's face. Can't believe the crowd was booing this fight along with you uneducated wannabe UGers complaining. Can't wait to see Mighty Mouse fight again hopefully again Dodson...

You can tell JBen has been buying the UCF's hype campain that he's the "125lb ko artist". I saw a massive neglect of grappling and twice as many flat foot 100% power haymakers. I hate when a fighter falls in that trap. It happens CONSTANTLY. Remember when wanderlay went for TDs in most every fight?

lol at comparing MM in this to Guida. MM went at Benavidez plenty. Guida ran from Grey all night, went at him with nothing. No real strikes, no tds, no sub attempts, no position advances. MM had all of the above tonight.

Did anyone notice that they BOTH tried to "cruz" each other? I guess they thought cruz created the blueprint strategy on their opponent. Problem is MM isnt half as strong as cruz & the problem with joeben is he isnt half the wrestler cruz is! Good fight.
