Great night of fights. Undercard had some really nice finishes and Pham/Miller was a war.

Beauty punch by Swick. Glad to see him back and winning.

Lauzon/Varner was a great fight and if Varner didn't gas I'm thinking he would've won the fight.

Machida deserves the title shot over Shogun. His performance was much more dominant even if it was boring until the KO. Jones is going to kill him again though.

Shogun really, really needs to work on his conditioning (heard that before?). I'm not sure if it's because he's not training hard enough or the bad knees don't allow him to or a combination of both but he really needs to improve his cardio if he wants to challenge for the title again. Good thing is his chin is amongst the best in MMA so he keeps fighting even when gassed and taking punches. His striking was extremely accurate Sat night and if (huge if) he can get his cardio to where it needs to be he'll be the toughest fight out there for Jones.
