    I knew this fight was going to likely be in Rivera's favor even though Kendall was the favourite on the gambling sites.

    Rivera's stock dropped because he got caught by Terry Martin who hits like an express train but people also forget that he fought with A. Silva for almost two rounds. Kendall has a weak chin and Rivera has a ton of experience.

    This equals a Tank-Nelmark style KO :bowdown:

    yea i thought he was going to loose happy though i dont like kendall
    and its not just cause ppl thought jorge was done after getting ko'd by martin....
    did you see his leben fight?? he got hit with the most glancing of blows and got ko'd ...
    good to see him with a good win though, he has some powerful strikes, the fight kinda reminded me of houston/jardine

    Not many fighters in the UFC have a 8-5 record. Wonder what the UFC will do with Grove

    Damn he got KTFO.

    And that Ref is huge, seen him at a few PPV's now and at this one he was bigger than Werdum or Gonzaga.

    big surprise to me, but i didn't watch his fight with cote. rivera stuck to the same gameplan. kendall couldn't take the pressure and didn't have much defense for the gnp.

    This was the one fight I told my friend not to bet on. Both fighters are far too mediocre.

    Props to Rivera and his old man strength.

    i was so glad to watch rivera destroy kendall, that stupid fucking mask he wears makes him look like such a fucking retard and it makes me laugh hysterically everytime he wears it and thinks he looks tough with it.

    i was shocked shitless when it happened but was extremely pleased. might have been the most fun fight to watch if it wasn't for the squirt of blood followed with glove licking later in the night during another fight

    Send him back to The Ultimate Fighter show? :dunno:

    He's young. He can improve on his game if he works at it.

    kendall thinks he's tito and can block punches with his face while he's trying to stand up... got him ktfo'd... he should develop a gameplan that plays to his skills and not try to emulate tito
