yeah that was crazy. knocked him smooth out with that.

so far all the fights have been good, except for the rua fight. reid cracked his shin bone in the first exchange. i figured rua would win but not like that

Looking at the results, I'm surprised Tank lasted that long. Did Turner take his sweet time, or was Tank actually doing well?

I was curious about that (cut on the shin) thing. Did his leg actually break, or was it really just a cut?

In the Tank vs Turner fight, Tank instantly came out and landed a huge punch that dropped Turner but he was still in it and when Tank tried to finish it, he gassed. Tank probably gassed about 1:30-2:00 min in.

In the Rua vs Reid fight, they both came out swinging. Reid looked like he got the better of the striking but they threw for about 20 seconds. What caused the cut was Reid threw a leg kick and Rua checked it. Reid's shin hit Ninja's knee hard and caused an gash that was pouring out blood. The Fight should be a draw and I thought it was ruled a draw due to injury but Sherdog says Rua got the win by TKO.

Great card overall.

tank rocked him early, but gassed and turner got mount and pounded him out

it didnt specify whether it was a break or not, i am curious myself. it was probably just a cut or a hairline fracture maybe

I like tank for stepping in. More than this, i love the part where tank sucked down a cold one straight after the fight.

I was very impressed with Vitor. He has changed camps again joining Anderson Silva in his new team. At first glimpse it could be very good for him. He came out in this fight throwing high kicks, and leg kicks. I can't remember the last time I saw Vitor do this. I don't know the level of the fighter he faced, but Vitor used every element of MMA to stop him. I like to see that since Vitor has all the tools, but has rarely used them all in one fight.

Yeah. I asked about this on the play-by-play thread in the spoiler forum (Link for proof). I wasn't aware he had joined black house and he looked good because of it.
