    I wouldn't say that just yet, I mean sure a lot of the fighters out of that camp have lost recently but look who they have been up against.

    First, he got hurt standing!

    Second, that choke was fucking tight. He gutted it out and it actually gave him time to recover. Have you ever been in an arm triangle? I am good with that choke hold and it looked tight. Props to Johnson for not tapping, but it was close.

    I feel as though he purposely doesn't utilize proper punctuation or capitalization. It takes much more effort to type the way he does than it would if he typed the proper way........

    I finished reading Fedorlei's long response considerably quicker than itchybutt's one sentence paragraph.

    I haven't been as impressed with Johnson as others but one thing that stood out to me is that he looked less muscled recently. As that's the opposite of most of the guys when then join the Blackzillians, I wonder if he's getting more serious about focusing his gym time on technique. If his standup gets a little more varied in his attacks, I could see him moving up the ladder.
    Yeah I noticed it too. At the star of rd 2 I thought, "man this Castillo guy looks jacked, he'll probably gas". And he might have if not for the KO. Johnson is really becoming a well rounded fighter.

    This is about what I expected out of a response.

    It's quite blatant that you don't read books, you might actually learn something.

    It's also quaint that you have a Michael Johnson avatar after he has a great performance, very topical.

    As far as Brown having "more skills" than anyother HW with, you're simply flatout wrong.
    W-R-O-N-G.

    Browne has excellent physical attributes and alot of potential, he's big and he's agile. BUT, his striking isn't anywhere near on par with that of say Overeem or JDS or Hunt, his BJJ isn't anywhere near Werdum, Mir, Gonzaga, Big Nog or Barnett, his wrestling isn't anywhere near close to Cormier or Cain and his GNP isn't anywhere near that of Bigfoot or Fedor. So please, seriously explain to me how he's got more skills than every other HW? Are you suggesting that he is more well-rounded? Because I haven't see that from him either, the top HWs all have alot more to their games than Browne, in which his major advantage will just be size and even that will disappear against some HWs.

    All I can see is that he's got alot of potential(but I'd give the bump to Stipe looking down the line) and he's a really big HW. But I've yet to see how he has somehow separated himself from the pack, hell, I've yet to see him look like a Top Ten, so exactly how does he have more skills than the rest of the divison?

    With the loss to Bigfoot, I have Browne at the top of the HW prospect pack with the likes of Stipe, SDR, Herman, Jordan and Schaub(in that order). His biggest win is against Struve and he was totally flat against Kongo.

    The funny thing is, while you seem to be hanging off of Browne, by devaluing Bigfoot(who is a legitimate challenger), you're just knocking down your boy Browne, making it sound like he shit the bed against some can, which is incorrect.

    In future, please utilize at least one comma.
