I was there and it is very interesting to day the least....
1st of all, there was alot of empty seats, I would guesstimate about 2k empty, so there was only 11-12k ppl there. If i remember correctly there was like 18k at 77 and that was louder.
The USA chant during Maia/McDonald was hilarious!!!!
I couldn't believe it.
The crowd was way better than 77, ALOT less booing, even during the many decisions. Listen to Brock/Herring again, halfway through the intro it went from a boo to cheering. All booing was minimal.
The Andre/Jones fight recieved the most booing, it really looked like Andre faked the second knee to the groin so the fans had no respect for him after that, they actually started chanting "BULLSHIT!! BULLSHIT!!!"
The crowd was INSANE for the last 4 fights (in this order): Huerta/Florian, Manny/Emerson, Brock//Herring, GSP/Fitch
Listen to GSP's, Brock's and Roger's intro's, they went apeshit.
The thing about the USA/GSP chant was about half the stadium was chanting GSP and half was chanting USA. In the arena it sounded like: "USP!!!! "GSA!!!" That's why it prolly sounded like that via PPV.
Very respectful crowd, was glad i attended the event.
