Fihlo was being beaten soundly until he pulled that submission out of nowhere. The win is what counts, but the guy didn't look very sharp up until the very end.

He was losing, but a BJJ player doing that well against a K-1 level striker is pretty impressive, MM is an animal, and would KO most MW's in the world IMO.
Seems pretty lame of you to discredit the win. The name of the game with mma is imposing your will, MM tried to KO, PF tried to submit, Filho was the better man

I specifically said that "the win is what counts". He has had lackluster performances in his past three fights. I think he would be in trouble against UFC-level competition.

manhoef is a joke. this guy parades into the ring with a dog leash attached to his neck like some kind of psychotic lunatic and then he always gets submitted 20 seconds after being on the ground. learn some ground skills buddy, this is MMA not K-1. btw did anyone notice how reckless his striking is? he couldn't even KO filho after throwing like 50 strikes. someone like anderson silva or even machida would pick him apart so easily
