The UFC countered last night's "Strikeforce: Carano vs. Cyborg" event by airing a "UFC 100" special for free on Spike TV. The special included three fights from the main card, as well as three never-before-televised preliminary bouts.
The Brock Lesnar - Frank Mir heavyweight title fight, Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Alan Belcher and Dan Henderson vs. Michael Bisping aired from the main card, while Mark Coleman vs. Stephan Bonnar, Shannon Gugerty vs. Matt Grice and Jon Jones vs. Jake O'Brien aired from the preliminary card


I feel these edits are just and normal for what any prospering business would need to do in order to mantain it's level of success

Cant blame them for editing out Brock's rant.

First, they edited out most of Hendo's in-cage post fight interview, where Rogan asked Hendo if he hit Bisping while he was unconscious for revenge. Then, they edited out all of Brock's post fight antics, including him getting in Mir's face and him giving the crowd the finger. And finally, they edited out Brock's in-cage post fight interview completely.

Who didn't see that coming.

umm... no it didn't. that honor goes to akiyama v. belcher which was aired. Lawlor got sub of the night for his efforts. and rogan's pro belcher bullshit should have been cut. just cause a guy lands a leg kick does not mean he is the winner of the fight and someone needs to tell this to rogan. SERIOUSLY a successful leg kick does not equal mma brilliance someone please update rogan on this matter.

My guess is they didn't want to take away what drawing power CB Dollaway has to the casual fan by showing him getting choked unconcious.
