    And his lack of striking will get him fucking demolished by anyone that is even near being a top heavy weight

    he's a top level grappler and didnt do well tonight, big deal.
    and actually, i dont hear anyone hyping matt lindland. if anything, he's underrated.

    Bad performance by Lindland.

    A.Silva is officially unbeatable at 185, and fedor is unbeatable at HW.

    he could hang (maybe not beat) with rich franklin, dan henderson, denis kang, cung le, etc... no reason to have so much hate my nog.

    Only person on that list he could hang with is franklin and maybe Kang on a bad day. And I still think both of them would probably still stop him in the first

    i dont see how he could beat anderson.
    he would have a hard time getting past anderson's strikes trying to get inside.
    once in the clinch, anderson is just so much bigger and would end up eating knees in the thai.
    on the ground, his average GnP would be outclassed by anderson's bjj sweeps and top control.

    He looked like shit because he hasn't fought since last April. He has been running in some Oregon political race

    franklin doesnt finish many fights. i think franklin would win a 3rd decision.

    hendo v lindland would be interesting, since they know each others game so well from the old quest days.

    cung le would have no answer for what lindland would do to him on the mat.

    meh Fabio was no pushover. Lindland wasn't impressive but he got the job done.

    I decided to argue with my friends about something stupid during that fight and thankfully missed almost the entire thing.

    He looked like he hadnt trained in months. Punch speed is usually the first thing to go when you're in a training slump

    wait, so was this the first time for everyone watching lindland? The dude never looks good, his striking has always looked like poop and you are always baffled as to how he is top ten. But he wins.
