    Mercer has learned something, did you see him right for a single leg after landing the punch.
    Like Billy Jacks' soul attack, I'm one Injun you wont forget.

    Big props to Dana White for getting rid of Arlovski and Sylvia, right as they went into their decline. No sense in keeping guys around who are no longer competitive with the rest of the elite fighters in the UFC.
    Lets go Brent!

    BS, if anything, it shows what happens to some fighters when Fedor either taps out or knocks them the fu*k out, Ray Mercer and Brett Rogers should be kissing Fedors ass for taking away the soul of Big Tim and AA.
    I never thought about it before, but Fedor might actually take their soals and spirit away when he beats you. Nog, Arlowski, Tim, Cro Crop, Randelman, etc.

    There is no way this should have happened. Tim looked stupid and if he underestimated Mercer in MMA because he was just a boxer, then he is as stupid as he looked.

    Dana didn't get rid of Arlovski, he actually apologized for treating him poorly and said he hoped he would stay in the UFC (take their offer which was less than Afflictions).

    I think he made Tim an offer too, but it was less than what Affliction offered. The UFC would have a deeper Hwt weight class if they were there even though both have had bad losses recently.

    although it wasn't publicized, I think Dana did to Tim what he did to CC; cancel his contract with a loss and give him a lower one to replace it. I remember after Tim lost his belt the first time that his pay went down. Pay always increases in a UFC contract and champion contracts that expire are renewed.

    I just don't want to hear what the likes of Mayweather is going to say about boxers!

    I think Randleman's problem was that he spent too much time on his strengths - I could see him and Coleman picking wrestling over submission training and weights over running every time. Look at how much the former Team Quest guys (Randy, Dan, Matt) have improved on the ground compared to the Hammerhouse.

    I think CC and Nog were still good after Fedor - remember CC winning the OW GP. Their downfalls started when they came to the UFC and I think PJ's comment that was related to steriod testing is a good one.

    Tim, like Andre, tries to box everyone and in this case he tried to "outbox a boxer"

    Unfortunately, Mayweather will be able to gloat and run his mouth. He can say that Mercer proved that boxing > MMA. He took out the former heavyweight champion of the world in an MMA bout and at the age of 48. There simply is nothing that can be defended about MMA vs boxing in this bout. Mercer is years past his prime and left zero doubt with his demolition of Timmay. I am embarrassed for MMA and it's all Sylvia's fault.

    Wouldn't read too much into this one... Anyone can get one-punched. One guy threw a really hard punch and the other guy couldn't block it. That's it. To really make a statement about MMA vs boxing, a bunch of boxers would have to fight a bunch of MMA fighters, then you could come up with some statistics.

    He did face the two greatest heavyweight of all-time before this though to bad he lost to both of them..
