Report: Terry Martin to fight Marvin Eastman @ UFC 81

    I’d love to see the “Beastman” finally get a “W” in the UFC.

    I was so hoping that Leben would get knocked out by Martin. Then I saw the pics at the weigh in and Leben towered over Martin. I then knew Leben would get the win/knockout. Height isn’t everything, but in this instance it would be the advantage that Leben needed.

    Martin is cool and Leben is a shit talking C+ fighter at best. Cant beleive he beat Martin, I still think it was a fluke.
    Too bad for Eastman, another loss and the last time we will see him in the UFC

    Where’s Leben anyway?

    I can’t believe Eastman is fighting with a torn retina…

    I would have been pulling for Leben and/or Martin if they weren’t fighting each other. The match was pretty darn good, if you ask me. Leben seemed much more disciplined, but it wasn’t until he got sloppy that we saw him get rocked and then land a haymaker. Good times. The look on his face was precious. Martin needs to increase his mobility rather than stand’n’bang everytime. Eastman will be a good test.

    Marvin Eastman is RIPPED at 205. I know he’s made it to 185 before, but, how? I mean this guy’s probably got a minus on his body fat ratio at 205?Either way if the Beastman is able to cut that kinda weight without sacrificing cardio and such, Terry Martin is in for a woopin’.
