    Honestly I realized after reading all these posts that more and more the 205 division has regained my interest. At the end of Chuck's run and Even with Rampage/Hendo I wasn't really that interested.

    However with all the shakeups I think a lot of great matches can happen. You've added Wanderlei and Shogun to the mix. not to mention you can justify pitting Shogun against a slightly lesser opponent because of his loss.

    Also you can pit Forrest and Jardine against better competition or against themselves.

    HELL i'm even kind of looking forward to Tito/Rashad II. I think it'll be interesting to see who wins those fights. it was a draw last time, but if Tito hadn't grabbed the cage he probably would have won.

    I think Tito knows he can hang with Rashad on the floor, so he'll have the confidence, and Rashad knows what he has to work on (not bobbing and weaving like a fool).

    205!

    Besides Shogun and arguably Liddell, who is 'underacheiving'?

    205 is very exciting right now, so many possibilites and so little certainty. :bowdown:

    I donno man, I think its unfair to call great performances by Jardine and Forrest a result of their opponents underachieving.

    Then wtf would you call it?
    Shogun didn't train properly and gassed early.
    Chuck was stubborn as fuck about his plan of attack. Fuck he's a former wrestler, go for a fucking takedown and score some points on the judges cards.

    I'm calling it being outclassed on the night. When youre saying they underachieved its like youre saying that they had no chance, and that they were lucky that soandso didnt take them seriously.

    A fighter's mental game is not an excuse for losing, just because you didnt think your opponent was worthy doesnt mean you get a pass under the guise of 'underachieving' the bottom line is that they were worse mentally on the night.

    I don't buy fighter excuses on any level, I don't care what they are. At the same time, when a fighter loses, Im not jumping down their throats. MMA is a test of every aspect of the fighter, physical and mental, and if one of those things is off you can lose easily.

    Plus you have Machida and Houston to throw in the mix as well. (And possibly Nak if he can step it up a bit)

    Hero worship gone sour imo.

    That's the game. I was upset when Shogun lost too. You can't take anything away from the either winner.

    Okay aside from Serra GSP I don't think people fairly predicted the matches, especially given the way Cro Cop has been preparing for fights recently.

    Did you watch Jardine vs Bonnar? Jardine dominated that fight and it was a BS decision.

    I rarely ever criticize a decision. that was by far the worst I can remember in the UFC.
