I thought it might have been me who's a bit too harsh of a critic or simply doesn't get entertained as much as I used to, but all the guys I was with, even the new bandwagon UFC fans, found the show pretty boring.
Honestly if you found UFC 129 boring you should stop watching MMA, it's not for you. The whole card was entertaining, starting from the first fight on the undercard.

Of course a guy like Machida was a favorite to win, but tell me when is the last time you saw a Kanku Dai kick in MMA? Couture is old and over the hill, but he's still one of the best 205 lbs.

Spinning backfist knockout, flying triangle choke, 3 suplexes by Rory, sick headkick knockout, 2 titles fights, Hominick heart, etc...
