Very disapointed in Soko's fight but was uplifted when chuck dominated wanderlei....GSP is looking unbeatable and looks like a lot of trouble for serra.......

Bummed that Matt didn't win...but the wandy and chuck fight kept me on my feet the whole time, wished it would've been a knockout thought or chuck by submission.
I like Clemeti more after seeing how he punked out and submitted melvins a$$. Also the Eddie sanchez match was boring.

I have read/listened to a couple of interviews from fighters that have fought Machida and they both said that it is like fighting a ghost. You swing and miss.

I hope to never see MG in the UFC again! He is a punk. I don't like Clementi at all, but can't stand to see Melvin fight one more time.

Matt didn't just lose, he got schooled at his own game.

Bummed cause I think Hughes will retire now and I would have loved to see him kill Serra. Happy for GSP though, that kid is nasty!

Matt isn't done in MMA....he's just found the guy that has his number! Tito found Chuck and he's still around. Rich found Anderson and he is still fighting, and just look at all the other WWs....do you see them beating Matt?? I see very few of them able to.... Fitch, and maybe Kos.....MAYBE!! If he wants he can stay around for a couple more...plus he is on contract.

I don't know who was fighting last night but it's not the Wanderlei I remember. I haven't seen his last few fights so maybe he's changed over time. I counted one knee, and a few weak kicks. And standing around passively waiting for Chuck to initiate, I've never seen that in Wanderlei. I'm wondering if the lack of a corner and Chucks constant circling maybe threw him off. In PRIDE he used to cram people into the corner and just knee them into submission.

Well, congrats to Chuck.

overall a very good event, machida and gsp were extremely impressive and chuck vs. wandy lived up to the billing as an all out war. that might have been the best card of the year.

Machida is the man, there was no doubt in my mind he was going to win this fight. He was the perfect style for Soko, Soko will be back, IMO he just lost to one of the best LHW in the division...He doesn't drop much in my book....Too bad Rampage is locked up with Griffin otherwise Rampage vs Machida would be looking sweet right about now......

I had a shitty run at this event too. Entertaining to watch though. Props to Chuck and GSP. The Silva/Liddell fight was really exciting IMO both guys landed some bombs and both kept on fighting the whole way through. And Chuck finally used his wrestling for something other than a sprawl lol.
