Why is everyone crying that some 'street thug' is in MMA? So what? MMA is supposed to be about what art is best, if some street punk can get by with minimal amounts of training then so be it. I for one hope he starts whipping some more ass, he clearly made a couple of mistakes that he easily powered out of which is one of his strong points. I for one was amazed at his abilities, it looked like he had known some of the moves all along and hustled us to get more bread on his mma debut. I realize that Mercer isn't a good baseline of his abilities, but it is a start. If he sticks it out a year or two before he fights anyone big, he might surprise us all. I haven't seen it here yet, but people are crying all over the MMA forums that he is making the sport look bad, I just don't see that. Just because someone doesn't win pretty, doesn't mean its not a victory.
