Quoteworthy:

"I feel great because I want to show people where I'm standing and I want to show the world what I'm capable of. A lot of people still think I'm [green] but I'm more than that. If they want to beat me, it takes more than that to beat 'The Hammer.' It was a real honor to fight my former teacher and I'm just glad it's over. That pressure is off my shoulders. Now I can go see my daughter on Monday after school. I just want to relax and lay on a hammock."

UFC light heavyweight Matt Hamill is relieved to have rid himself of the pressure of fighting former division champion Tito Ortiz. The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 3 student dropped the "Hammer" on his former teacher, cruising to a unanimous decision victory over "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" on Oct. 23 in Anaheim. Did his lopsided win have more to do with Hamill's skill? Or Tito's rapid deterioration? Let's hear your take on where these two fit in the current landscape of the 205-pound division.
