Mark Bocek used to train Lorenzo and I in Jiu-Jitsu. Kid was 16 years old and he was kicking the s--- out of us.

To see this kid go from that to fighting the level he is at is kind of cool.

He wins this fight he deifnitely breaks though and he is the real deal. People will start taking this kid very serious. Not that they dont now, but this fight will put him over the top.

A win for Boek over Henderson will be career changing

The lighter weight guys, they go after it, they are a lot mroe exciting.

I used to train with Mark a bit so I hope he wins.
But Ben is really tough and I have to think Mark is a slight underdog.

 I thought Bocek beat Jim Miller.

Most underrated fighter in the LW division. 

I think he styles on Bendo.

 Bocek is going to continue his lightweight run and defeat Bendo with ease.  Bocek is easily the one of the most underrated fighters in the UFC right now, not to mention the baddest ginger fighting - PERIOD.

He lost to Miller. And Miller is also more underrated ironicly IMO. He only lost to Maynard in 09' and Edgar in 06'. If Bocek is underrated then Miller is highly underrated since you cant even remember he beat Bocek.

I remember seeing the Bocek/Miller fight and think Bocek won, but knowing the way judges score fights, it will go to Miller!

And yes, both guys are highly underated IMO!

I was amazed by the way Bocek just cut through Dustin Hazelett's jiu-jitsu like a buzz saw and submitted him with ease. That triangle was a thing of beauty.

 I thought he won.  And everyone knows Miller is good.  I rarely hear Bocek mentioned among upper echelon LW's.

I dont think hes ranked, but hes been training for a long time. (Ever since he started the ufc) So he must be pretty bad ass.

If Boxing had belts, he'd be black.

I think thats because nobody can remember any high profile wins, and really only remember him getting beat up by Frankie and Danzig. But him beating Hazelett with grappling was impressive.

Bocek is a tough fight for anyone. Top notch BJJ combined with excellent Greco skills. Bendo is tough, but he will need to be much more cautious than he usually is as far as positioning goes on the ground.

Bocek pretty much lost that fight against Miller in the last 10 seconds when Miller was able to get his back very briefly. I still felt he won, but I knew the judges would give it to Miller just based on that.

 He gave Danzig a handful and I think he's improved leaps and bounds since then.  That Miller fight was a major eye opener for me...Bocek is friggin good.

One of my teammates in the U of M BJJ club once faced Bocek at a tournament back in 2002. I believe this is an exact quote:

"His knee on belly made me want to die."

Anyone else think the stoppage against Edgar was early? I haven't watched it in a long time, but I remember him rolling into guard as it was stopped. Phone Post
