First sentence for me too. People saying this was a decent card or even a good card are forgetting the massive piles of **** the UFC has served up this year. Props to them for putting this card together, replacing the injuries, and also to the fighters for showing up and making tonight really fun,

I'm absolutely shocked that all people want to talk about is Anderson's "disrespect" rather than the fight itself. He's usually such a fan favourite on this site.

Putting Bonnar in there with Anderson in the first place was more disrespectful to Anderson than what he did to Bonnar. If Bonnar came to fight rather than just holding him against the cage, maybe Anderson wouldn't have clowned him like that. I think Forrest's loss was still more embarrassing but this has to be close.

Nice to see Big Nog win in Brazil. Herman didn't really do anything the entire fight.

The Fitch/Silva fight was great. Have to give Fitch some credit tonight, he looked awesome.

Maia also looked great tonight.

I'm not, just saying. GSP has strong wrestling it doesn't mean he will be able to take Silva down like Sonnen did either.

Don't get me wrong I am a big GSP fan and would love nothing more than to see him beat Silva... I just don't think it would happen.

You can also just watch off the UFC site. Always a link on the top of the page.

Forget about beating him, I don't think GSP will even take the fight. Probably a smart idea but just unfortunate for the fans.

He probably shouldn't but I think he has already stated he would fight Silva if he gets past Condit. He also said he may move up to middleweight to challenge himself.

The most recent interview I have seen with GSP he said there were lots of challenges at 170, he didn't want to move up and he dint seem that interested in a superfight.

Well deserved.

Maia also had a sick submission.

Glad Fitch got that bonus. Never been a fan of his like a lot of people but I loved that fight tonight.

Is there a way to listen to the press conference in English? Don't they usually translate the questions during international events?

You know, for having put on 150+ events, the UFC still sucks at the post fight presser. They never seem to be ready to go. It usually takes them time after it's started to get the mics to work but tonight it was the translator that was late. Don't mean to nag but you'd think that after this long, it'd be just routine for them to have it run perfectly smoothly.

Sorry to reply so late, but yes, I do agree. Maldonado was out on his feet a few times. Yes he could have continued, but I care more about the long-term damage being done.

Dana won't admit it now but I'm pretty sure he has dissed Fitch and called him out for just laying on people many times. Now he's putting it all on the "other people" who criticize Fitch.

looks like GSP vs Silva is more likely, Silva wants no part of Jones when asked he kept shaking his head like no chance of happening. Dana pretty much offered him a boatload of money too.

Anderson wants GSP. No to Weidman and definitely no to Jones.

UFC LW division is going to get even stronger now. Alvarez's contract with Bellator is up and Melendez could also come over if Strikeforce is finished.

Seems like a fair deal. Dana will let Anderson compete in the Olympics if he agrees to fight Jones first.
