    Everybody was busy talking about Gurgle not using his JJ. I thought it was a good fight though. He likes to slug it out for the fans. That's fine with me.

    Gurgel is an average kickboxer, but he can put on an entertaining fight by using his face to block punches.

    I would really like to see him actually fight like an MMA fighter at some point though, and use his kickboxing to transition to the ground and up again. He has the cardio to do it, and the skills, he just seems to not listen. Dellagrotte seemed frustrated that he wasn't following the gameplan.

    All the props to Aaron Riley though for kickin ass.

    lol, the problem is a lot of people only know jorge gurgel's name from TUF and assume if he wins its because hes awesome, if he loses its because he totally sucks. Aaron riley is a good fighter, and I'm pretty sure theres more to mma than "just using your bjj".

    Terrible fight with horrendous standup. Gurgel disappoints every fucking time. I am glad that he thinks that losing with his kickboxing is entertaining for the fans because for the life of me, I dont know how this guy still gets airtime in the UFC.

    it was REALLY sloppy. I didnt find it SUPER entertaining, but that might be cause the way gurgel fights reminds me of a women fighting. Did anybody else not see this?

    i thoguht this fight was fucking awful and looked amateur.

    Call me crazy, I thought Hazelett and McCrory should have gotten FOTN. That shit was an MMA clinic.
