Matt finishes a fight. Even though it wasn't pretty I'm impressed.

God dammit Holman.

My sentiments exactly. I was counting on someone derailing the Hamill train

I definitely didn't think Holman would gas in the first round. Seeing Hamill's standup I expected him to get knocked out. Apparently they both have horrible standup. Sad really.

What is sad is that I bet on Holman and I am 1 out of 4 so far. I was expecting the Holman bet to offset my other bets. Damn.

I'm a little happy for Jason... how good does this make Rashad look? I want Jason to go on to face Hamill, I think that'd be a good fight but UFC won't go for it because Jason would most likely take it. Want to see Sorbal against Tito some time down the road... but he may be gone from the UFC after that. Shame if he is.

As I type Lytle has Matt in a gullitine... can he pull it off? Nah... he let go. Would this be a bigger upset than little Nog losing?

I'm on fire tonight!

Especially after the way I ate it on the last two events.

But can anyone tell me why the McFedries Kampmann fight is higher up than the hughes and franklin fights? I thought they went in order of importance/popularity, like a concert?
