I would say more like the goalie knocks his net over each time Datsyuk crosses the blueline.

Well, maybe it was more like the goalie knocks the net over while Datsyuk dipsy-doodles around pointlessly.

I understand people being mad at Silva. But Leites fell on the mat and turtled whenever Silva tagged him. It's a strategy, I guess... Kalib Starnes had a strategy too.

I dunno. Should the ref at some point started taking points away from the fighters for failing to engage? That's the only thing I can think of...


Bonuses:
Krysztoff gets $70,000 for the submission.
Rua gets $70,000 for knockout of the night.
Stout and Wiman both get $70,000 for fight of the night.

All were obvious choices, I would say.

Grease gate part the second

Lol Anderson. Doubt anyone will say this is why he won the fight, but after the way the fight went, he'll probably get some sick heat from this.

I don't know if Rogan got mixed messages about Chuck's intent, should he have lost, but shoving the mic in his face when he was having a tough time speaking--for whatever reason--came off awfully distasteful IMO.

I'm glad Dana is pulling the plug. Somewhere Dr. Johnny Benjamin is breathing a sigh of relief.

He wipes vaseline off his forehead onto his chest, stomach, and ... uh, apparently his nuts?


I'm not sure what he thought Leites might have been planning...

Yes, our group noticed that as well. I think if it was in Nevada, there would have been someone watching each fighter's every move--ready to pounce and wipe off any sign of "stray" grease.

I was just thinking though how easy it would be to grease someone. Throw a healthy dose of it on a white towel; who would even know the difference when wiping down a fighter's sweat in between rounds?

I just hope some other promotion doesn't back a truckfull of money up to his door and convince him to have one more fight.

Well, I think they wanted to get some kind of post-fight comments from him win or lose since he's such a big name, so I don't know if there was really a better way to go about it. At least it wasn't as bad as that WEC guy who asked Jens Pulver "so are you even relevant anymore" after he got starched by Garcia. But yeah, it was kind of hard to watch, I never thought I'd see Chuck on the verge of tears.

The post-fight "interview" on UFC.com is pretty sad as well. http://www.ufc.com/index.cfm?fa=Vide...home&gid=19368

I've never been a huge Liddell fan but cheers to him.

How can you say with a straight face that "he slowly picked apart Leites"?

How is punching the dudes knee picking him apart?

if you lay on your back all night, you take away a lot of offence too.

Laying on your back doesn't score points.

What's next for Shogun? I can't wait to see him fight again. Liddell isn't as good as he use to be, but Shogun looked good last night. His movement was awesome.

While I agree with the awarded fights, I'm not sure I can agree that they were obvious. On the sub, Bocek's rear naked was pretty awesome, more the speed at which he sunk it in and finished the fight, quite a masterpiece.

And I personally felt the Chonan/Grant fight was a better fight than Stout/Wiman, but to each their own (I was live and in person also, a little harder to see how crisp the shots etc. are...).

They will probly give him a tune up fight or 2 and then a shoot at the belt I think

I cheered like a little girl finally getting Barbie's dream house when Shogun won, and I'm not ashamed to admit it.
