Pretty much a disgrace by all of us.

I won with an embarrassing 15 points

Pete came in 2nd with 14 points.

C despite losing the 1st 4 fights came in 3rd with 10 points.

Spartan comes in 4th with 9 points.

El Diablo and Yoda pitch a shutout.

Pathetic performance by all. We are all losers.

Dam, and SF usually feature showcase matchups that allow for some impressive scores. Not tonight. Wow.

Jim, has your opinion of Jacare changed after this loss? You've mentioned in the past that he'd be a good match against Anderson Silva but what happens to that with this loss to an underdog with less than half his fights?

Um, probably. Jacare struggled with Rockhold's length and TDD. I think Anderson would be too much for him. I still think Jacare is a top 5 MW though.

That's a tough call. His striking was barely competent. Honestly I think he cardio is in question too. He looked pretty gassed to me from the 3rd round on. Though in his defense I'm not sure what the judge who scored it unanimous for Rockhold was watching. There is no way Rockhold had a shutout in that fight. Middleweight is such a tough division to guage simply because Silva is so head and shoulders above everyone else it makes it difficult to say who is next in line.

I really struggle to think of who I would put 2-5. There is argument for and against most other middleweights out there.

I hear ya, wildbill. Total crapshoot at MW. And nobody (minus Chael) seems to have a realistic shot at an upset title grab these days.
I think there are WWs (GSP, Shields, Condit) that match up better stylewise with Silva than virtually any current MW (wrestling, sub defense). Penn's obviously way too small. And Fitch's too predictable.
Obviously, there are LHW's that would pose problems but Silva probably still goes off as a solid favorite against all of them minus Bones.
