    A loss is a loss. It wasn't a freak injury, since he's separated his shoulder many times before, as he stated. If he can't hold together, he loses. Catastrophic failure is a loss.

    Nate is so good, he makes shoulders separate without even touching his opponent!

    Depends if you consider a freak injury a loss or not. I personally don't consider it to be a blemish on his record, since he looked impressive before the injury, but I could see how it could be seen as a setback in his career. As for the Sherk fight, I meant at 155 in the UFC, but thinking about it I am pretty sure that Sherk has only fought at lightweight 3 times.

    Manvel is a tool. Him and his cousin both should fight each other in a knife fight with War Machine as the referee and do it in the Philippines .

    Or they can do it in my basement. I'll clean the mess.

    I'd love to see him fight Faber, have Faber pretend to touch gloves while the ref is going over the rules, and then knock his ass out before the fight starts.

    The classless "Manvel" makes his big cousin Karo look like Machida when it comes to respect.

    Yeah, real classy guy, must run in the family.

    He'd definitely get paid more in the WEC than he would fighting jobbers in the UFC prelims. A main event with Faber would pull him in at least 15 grand.

    Definitely. On the article, I don't really see any reason why he'd drop down until he starts getting outworked at 155, which isn't going to happen until he begins facing top ten fighters.
