I gotta give it a 4, davis vs. lytle and franklin vs. hendo were good fights but they all went to the judges except for one on the main card, and none of them were very exciting. close yes but that's not enough, overall a disappointing card.

Considering how the co-main events turns out , the ridiculous mistake Kang did, the Palhares fight and the non exciting main event, i have to give a 3/10.

I am suprised that everyone is down on this event I am giving it a 7 Lytle and Davis was a slugfest they did just what they said they would. John Hathaway looks like a prmoising young fighter. Kang is destryoing Belcher but the beauty of MMA shines and he makes a mistake and pays. What can you say about Jeramey Horn? That guy is a warrior he was certinly over matched but still pushed on and never gave up like most do when someone has their back and droping bombs on their ears. Shogun Coleman not the best fight ever but a nice combo to end the fight. Hendo Franklin was one of the best 3 rd fights I have seen in a while all I could ask for was 2 more rounds. To each his own I guess.

Thumbs in the middle. Solid opener, a few subpar matches, disappointing Coleman-Rua fight, very good main event despite the close call with the eye poke. If you missed it, you can skip it unless you like the guys who fought.

I give it a three. No five round fights, fighters gassing out, and even the best fights were just ok. The saving grace was the fans.

3/10 good atmosphere but as usual with the cards they feed us over here it was lacking star power

A mixed bag.

Marcus vs Lytle was good, but I'm not a fan of these gentleman agreements to turn MMA bouts into kickboxing matches. It's a matter of principal to me, but great fight anyways.

Franklin vs Dan was also an exciting fight.

Dissapointing to see Kang falter, but he'll be back--and hopefully a little more prepared next time out. It was a pretty interesting bout though, and we saw flashes of what he can do in the first round.

It just lacked something spectactular. Hendo/franklin could have been better if it was a 5 rounder.

I thought it was good I enjoyed the colman/Shogun fight I thought Rua would KO him or sub him sooner and I thought they could have went to a dec. anyway I enjoyed Kang losing and the first fight was okay not the top guys fight I only expected something not great but I guess it exceeded my low expectations

Living in Australia, we were slugged 39.95 for this!!!

I made the call not to get it the day before, and I was happy to hear that this card stank!!!

I am saving my pennies for 31st of Jan!!! I really hope that is a good one, as we have had some great cards towards the end of 2008!!!

War GSP!!!
