Rory did an incredible job, esp. when faced with some early grappling adversity.

Rory Macdonald will be champion someday. And that day may not be that far away. Kid is really good at all aspects of the game. A true mma artist.

I do too, Ares just sounds like he is trying to hard. I've always believed that the crazy guy that's willing to go out to the nickname "Marshmellow" and the Care Bear's theme song is going to be much more terrifying than the guy with the nickname "Hammer" and some deathmetal song.

It's scary how good he is at such a young age.

I have been critical of his stopping ability and killer instinct in the past but he showed some there for sure.

He's stopped 11/12 guys he beat, so I don't know why you'd be critical of his stopping ability.

I think that comeback win by Condit will eventually be seen as a turning point in his career. It seems to me at least that he is much more aggressive in looking to finish then he was before, now he seems to actively seek it out whereas his would just wait for it to open up before. He looked like he was trying to hammer Pyle's head permanently into the Octagon floor.

I missed the prelims, was the Gustafsson/Hamill fight any good?

it wasn't too bad, but watching Gustafsson pound on Hamill was great.

First round was fairly slow as Gustafsson seemed to be playing it safe and trying to feel things out a little, but he lit Hamill up in the second.

Hahaha, Rogan was going crazy because he couldn't finish the submission. I almost expected him to jump into the ring to give him pointers.

Rivera isn't the greatest, but you have to respect the guy's heart.

I thought they'd actually given Serra a headset at some point. It was pretty funny.

I always liked Rivera, it's hard to cheer against him.


in this fight though? Both of them have been gassed since early in the 2nd round, it's tough to watch.

That was an awkward fight, there were brief moments where it was a crazy fight with haymakers being thrown everywhere...then a whole bunch of stalling.

That fight simply looked like the tools that watch these and go into the backyard thinking they're mma fighters. The fact it took place in the UFC was just sad.

I like that Costa is honest about it, he seemed almost disappointed to win the way he did.

Both guys gassed so quick that I thought they were done by the end of the first.

This is actually a really good way of putting it. I can't believe how gassed both guys were. It was a sloppy, sloppy fight.
