Looks like it will be a great night of fights.
I need Varner to win to complete my $60,000 parlay
Looks like no PbP on the prelims.
Leone hung in there for quite a while with Barao. Not bad. I wonder how bad the first couple of rounds were. If they were bad at all

I've got a lot of finishes on this card so let's hope the decisions are relegated to the prelims.
0-2 so far on the wec card & ouch just lost my parlay on koch but it was only 200
Assuncao killed me

I won upset #2 with kerr getting that armbar.

Good first round be Wineland and Campuzano. I'd give that 10-9 Wineland.

I can't recall seeing a body shot that knocked someone out before. I'm sure it's happened. I've seen body shots that finished fights but never one like that.
Kerr cost me $36,000, damn him
So Kenny Florian is some kind of MMA crazy-man. "MMA Live" on Thursday, which I think tapes in Connecticut, TUF 11 on Saturday in Vegas, now WEC in Alberta. And at some point he has to run his gym and, oh, I dunno... train for his next fight.
Yeah, MMA Live is filmed in Bristol, Connecticut
horodecki and downes look like their freshmen in highschool
I love the WEC. The first fight was better than the whole card last night. Wineland looked real good.
I swear to god if Horodecki turns around and gets kicked in the head again....I'll stop picking him, period.
