    I heard Shlemenko had hands on him.
    And doing that to Manhoef seems to bouy that suggestion.

    I was dissapointed when he went down so quick against tito.
    It seems as if he’s mostly hands and can win a certain type of matchup.

    After taking a look at that fight,
    Shlemekno is WAY to sloppy to last against an average ufc level dude.

    And Manhoef is Manhoef.
    There is a reason he was never scooped up.

    It was a fun fight to watch though.
    In that bonner/griffen way.

    And Coker knows that.
