Even though he lost, I was more impressed with Silva in that fight. He took about 20-25 shots on the button or the temple that have dropped the likes of tito, couture, babalu, randleman, etc. Props to Chuck too, but Silva just kept on coming (like an axe murderer in a movie coincidentally) and caused Chuck to fight very cautiously, especially from the mid second round on. Congrats to Chuck, but Wandy ain't done yet, not by a long shot.

What A Rush! Pun intended...GSP is the interim UFC WW Champion! Armbar at 3:45 of R2.

Guess this means that, Serra's back permitting, GSP-Serra is on for Canada in April!

Edit: Now reading the stop time was 4:54 of R2.

I hope people realise matt does have a little class after all after that fight. Not alot of fighters will come out and say they where 120% after a loss. Ive got nothing but respect for both guys.

I'm glad St. Pierre won this fight. I knew he would do it too. It is good of Hughes to say that. I don't think I've ever heard a guy after a loss talk about what percent they were fighting at unless it was less than 100

I'll be watching that GSP fight over and over. I wasn't thrilled about the Chuck and Wanderlei fight. I thought it was a little boring, but the GSP fight made up for it.

very happy to see Chuck win.....Not only did he backfist Wandy,but he also backfisted everyone who jumped ship and picked Wandy to win even though they picked him to win 6 months ago...

6 months ago Chuck was a dominate favorite,and he loses and suddenly everyone doubts him in the same match up..

A little boring? That round 2 was an absolute war. Both guys just slugging it out, nothing boring about Silva and Chuck fight

In all honesty, yes, I did find it a little boring. First of all, I expected no more or less from Chuck. Second, I expected a lot more from Wanderlei. Third, slug fests just don't do it for me.

I don't think people jumped ship and picked Wanderlei for this fight. I think this fight could've easily gone either way.

I have a theory, perhaps you were seriously drunk and couldn't focus on the screen?

Give Rush a break...like he said, slugfests don't do it for him. If I were that way, I would've thought it was a boring fight, too. What's the big deal with voicing you're opinion?

I loved it, though. I'm glad Chuck won but I can't wait to see how/if Wandy rebounds.

Nothing wrong with voicing your opinion at all - that's exactly what I did (in a roundabout kinda way)

Yea...people did jump ship....Im not saying you did,but alot of people did..Dont you remember the polls 6 months ago and the polls 1 week ago?

Chuck is the better fighter and saying the fight could of gone either way is just a cheap shot at Chuck.......Same with my friends...they're all like "Naw...Silva will definatly win the rematch!"........whats the point in making the fight happen is people will still come up with sorry excuses after the fight to discredit the winner?
Nothing personal,but this is must my point of view...like i said..I told my close friends the same thing

of course you enjoyed the GSP fight more....You're from Canada and your favorite fighter is GSP...and you picked Wandy to beat Chuck.

And it wasnt just a slugfest...if it were just a slugfest it wouldnt of made it out of the first round...Maybe Wanderlei made it seem that way,but Chuck's striking was great..he moved in and out and kept Wanderlei at bay,used a spinning backfist and even shot in for takedowns..

Yes, Chuck's striking was accurate and Wanderlei landed some good punches too, but I don't want to watch a boxing match. This is MMA and I like watching a mix of stand-up and ground work.

My background is grappling so I am able to tolerate more groundwork, but just like all punching fights, I don't like lay and pray fights either.

Being a GSP fan had nothing to do with liking that fight. It was a great fight with a combination of stuff in all areas. The fact that GSP dominated was a bonus for me.

I also enjoyed GSP/Hughes,but FOTN was Chuck/Wandy

Sure if you look back at the Chuck/Silva fight you could say "Meh" since you know what happened already,but while seeing it live there is no way you werent up off your seat cheering for your fighter to land that one punch to end the fight!

Thats why i hate people that judge boxing fights like Mayweather/De La Hoya......they dont buy to see it live so they wait for the news to see who won then see it a week later on HBO,and of course its not gonna be exciting if you already know who won and how it ended!

the only fights i find boring are the ones where someone is hopelessly behind and dont do anything to turn it around,or too dominant fights where the opponent simply cant do anything(sherk/florian)
