What a boring card that was.

I haven't watched the prelims but the main card was terrible. The Riddle fight was OK but the rest sub par. Lombard was a huge disappointment after all the hype i had heard about him (i don't watch Bellator that much). Aside from a puncher chance there is no way in hell that this guy beat Anderson Silva none whatsoever (some people claimed he could be the guy). He's too small , doesn't move his feet and would get counter striked to death. He would get KOed/TKOed in the first two rounds.

Faber vs Barao wasn't THAT bad but it wasn't that good either. Pretty average technical striking battle with Barao being clearly the superior guy. Was disappointed by Faber , he didn't seem to know what to do and had no answer at all on the feet. I knew he was done when he couldn't bring Barao down.

As i said haven,t watched the prelims but as far as the main card is concerned i'd give it a 3/10 and i feel like im being generous.

I was thinking about going with my cousin to this event but I am so glad I didn't.

Dreadful main card, I don't even know where to start. In fact I'm just not even going to try.

I fell asleep 3 rounds into the main event, and that hasn't happened in a long time.

I'm trying to think what PPV was worse than this. Mir/Crocop maybe?

Sounds like I didn't miss much, was it as bad as UFC 119?

Happy that Faber lost, now the UFC won't be able to shove him down our throats and put a belt on him like they wanted.

You're crazy if you think that's actually going to happen.

Faber is the only guy who has a bit of a name in the lower weight classes, the UFC will find a way to give him another title fight. They always do.

Anyone know how deeply discounted tickets were in secondary markets leading up to the fight? A Craigslist search revealed an ocean of tickets listed at "half price/OBO", etc. Yikes.

At least in Vancouver with the Lesnar bait-and-switch it was the UFC still holding the bag on many of the tickets, instead of paying customers.

Thank god for the preliminary fights in this one. Biggie ups to carvallo & jimmo, something both of them will never forget.

Really wanted to see Faber win, not having to hear Joe Rogan say "the greatest fighter on the planet without a belt" takes the sting away.

Couture/Coleman is the worst PPV that I ever remember watching.

The main event sucked but I enjoyed the rest of the main card. That card had the arrival of Chael Sonnen.

Good call. I was watching that one at a stag so luckily I was a bit distracted for that one. No such luck this time.

Damn, I forgot to make my picks for this one. That might be a good thing though since I would've went 4-7 on the night.

Like everyone else said, just a ****** ppv. I liked the Ridle/Clements fight but everything else sucked. A couple good finishes on the prelims at least.

The announcers mentioned that Ebersole is already cutting weight to move down to 155 and that might be the reason he looked so lethargic out there. I hope that's the case as I've enjoyed his other fights in the UFC.

Has Lombard answered any questions regarding his health or gameplan? Anything specifically about his footwork or not moving forward? His performance was one of the most baffling things I've seen in recent memory.
