I called the KOTN and the SOTN, but no love for Blackburn/Garcia I said that would be FOTN and it kinda sounded like, or atleast sounded more exciting than Diaz/Stevenson.

Diaz/Stevenson & Lytle/Burns were good fights imo, but Sanchez/Guida was a GREAT fight.

I think everyone that got a bonus deserved it. I'm actually suprised they gave SOTN to Dent, I thought it'd be given to Wilks for sure, but then again everyone loves Anaconda chokes.

Sanchez-Guida was definitley one of the most exciting of the year so far.

Stevenson-Diaz actually put me to sleep it was so boring.

It didn't put me to sleep, and I enjoyed the fight....but I don't see how they could give it FOTN honors. And that's actually a small pet peeve of mine. Sherdog PBP made the Blackburn/Garcia fight sound like it was a pretty good one. Why aren't they trying to give some extra cash to the guys that aren't making nearly as much as the main card guys are? Reminds me of 96 when they gave Rampage/Jardine FOTN. Decent fight, but Brown/Sell deserved it. Or Brown deserved something extra. He had to finish Sell twice in one fight for petes sakes and he was making maybe 5% of what Rampage was making before the bonus.

PPV are always higher then Fight Nights, and FN's are always higher than finale.

Shoot that first round was amazing, like a locker room fight at school, just swinging for the fences.

Diaz-Stevenson had some really good technical battles on the ground, so I could see why that was a FotN. Lytle-Burns was a standup war.

And Sanchez-Guida was just awesome.

Diaz/Stevensen was a snooze fest on Joe's part........props to Diaz for a lot of submission attempts, but all Joe did was hold onto Diaz minus one gullatine attempt..........I think Joe was more worried about losing the fight then winning the fight.....

Decent fight, but definately not FOTN material in my opinion
