Yeah, I can't believe Roidereem got his butt handed to him...great fight by Silva nonetheless. Honeslty, I can't even begin to remember the Rashad fight, but I know he lost. Big fan of Maia and glad he took the decision victory.

That was definitely one hell of a KO. It blew my mind when I saw it, and talk about accuracy. The placement was perfect.

Jokingly sent an email to the owner of my gym and the dude I train with after I saw this that I wanted to learn that kick. Turns out it actually isn't TERRIBLY difficult to do, I was throwing them and caught my buddy with it (luckily he had his hands up haha) when we were sparring.

Now don't get me wrong, there is a huge difference between physically throwing the kick in practice and in actual use setting up an opening, timing it right, and connecting with that accuracy. The most impressive part isn't the kick, but in the following interview how he described reading his opponent and baiting him into opening up so he could throw that thing. Things like that are what make someone a real fighter. There is a clear distinction between him and what I can do lol

I hear what you are trying to say to a point lol.

Spinning kicks require serious balance and hip usage to be effect. While most people with basic training and good flexibility can throw it, to even land it requires serious skill. Timing and speed on these types of kicks is incredibly difficult. There are only a handful of people in the world that can execute them like that. This kid is no joke. His raw talent is off the charts.

The way I learned to do spinning heel kick was to make sure to get your head turned all the way around, and the rest of your body will follow.

My favorite kick is still and will forever be the Tornado Kick

Haha that is awesome. Something I've certainly never tried before. All these wacky moves are so sick but so rare to actually pull off well. Generally it goes like Sonnen's spinning backfist against Silva and they end up on their ass losing the match lol

Jon Fitch among 16 fighters cut from the UFC.

When we announced just hours ago that Jacob Volkmann had been cut from the UFC as part of a vast, government-led ploy to disarm the public following a 1-2 run in his last 3 fights, little did we know that his termination was just the precursor for one of the largest mass firings in UFC history. But that appears to be the case, as it was recently made public that Volkmann was but one of 16 fighters to be cut from the UFC today.
Among the dead are a few guys you probably wont recognize (C.J. Keith, Motonobu Tezuka (?), Simeon Thoresen), a few guys who probably had it coming (Vladimir Matyushenko, Mike Russow, Mike Stumpf) and a couple of guys who couldn’t find a win in the UFC if they sold their souls to Dana White Satan (the continuously underwhelming Jorge Santiago and poor, poor Jay Hieron).
However, if you were to continue looking over said list, you would find a couple inclusions that would not only make you scratch your head, but possibly shave your head, eyebrows, body hair, and nipples off in a hallucinogenic stupor. After the jump, we’ve compiled our own list of the most shocking entries.
Jon Fitch: That’s right, the man who is currently ranked at #9 on the UFC’s “official” welterweight rankings list, which were made public all of two weeks ago, has been axed for the second time in his 18-fight UFC career. While his first exit from the promotion wasn’t exactly performance-related, it’s hard to say that his second is any different. Fitch may be 1-2-1 in his past four bouts, but that lone victory came in a thrilling match over one of the division’s hottest prospects in Erick Silva. Not to mention Fitch’s thirteen other victories in the UFC. But yeah, keep trying to convince us that those rankings are anything other than a steaming pile of (adorable) dog shit.
Che Mills: 2-2 in the UFC, Mills was more than likely fired for basically giving up in the third round of his fight with Matt Riddle at UFC on FUEL 7, a move that immediately earned him the ire of The Baldfather.
Paul Sass: Talk a bout a hype-deflation. Sass came into the UFC riding a ten-fight unbeaten streak and quickly proved that he was the real deal by submitting his first three UFC opponents. However, after being dealt a taste of his own medicine compliments of Matt Wiman at UFC on FUEL 5, Sass would drop a follow-up contest to Danny Castillo, also at UFC on FUEL 7, which was apparently enough for the UFC to sever their ties with the Brit. Speaking of Brits…
Terry Etim: 6-5 UFC, on the heels of his second straight loss to Renee Forte at, you guessed it, UFC on FUEL 7 in London. Although Etim has fought just once a year since 2009 and is best known for being on the wrong end of the greatest knockout of 2012, this is still kind of a shocking entry considering the following he had gained amongst UK MMA fans. We guess shit happens when you drop a decision in your home country.
Other fighters who find themselves unemployed as of today are…
Wagner Prado: 0-2 and 1 NC, lost both fights by second round submission.
Josh Grispi: 0-4 UFC, officially became one of the biggest busts in UFC history (as we pretty much predicted) when he dropped a UD to Andy Ogle at UFC on FUEL 7.
Ulysses “Useless” Gomez: 0-2 UFC, also dropped a decision at UFC on FUEL 7. Expect several nickname-based puns to start popping up on comment boards across the MMA blogosphere any minute now.
Jacob Volkmann: We’ve already covered this one. In short, blame Obama.

Good Riddance.

As a fighter, it is typically code not to insult or disrespect another fighters ability. Referring to an unsuccessful fighter as a "can" is extremely disrespectful. Until you step in the ring/cage, you have no real right to criticise a fighter.

That being said, I do not respect or appreciate Jon Fitch's game. A fighter should always be looking to finish. Jon Fitch is a straight-up, decision seeker. I have a lot of respect for wrestlers and their ability. I am not some blood thirsty fan; grappling and control are crucial elements of the sport and I enjoy watching those aspects. However, Jon Fitch has done nothing to expand his game. As good as he is at takedowns and submission defense, he has all the opportunity in the world to expand his ground and pound top game, and submission game. He trains at AKA, one of the best camps in the world, so their is no excuse for not growing as a fighter. I loved watching Maia kick his ass at his own game. At least Maia was working for submissions the whole fight.

Fitch will not be missed.
