I would have like to see Mir get SOTN, but I understand how Demarques could get it, and agree with the other awards. Great card, solid night of fights

Yeah they love to see two guys blast each other in the face but Paul and Stefan did just that and webt 3 rds. I know it was loped sided but BJ and Deigo should have got it BJ for his performance and Deigo for the heart he could have easily on a takedown attempt stuck his neck out and got "caught" in a choke but even though you could see he was discouraged he kept fighting.

Really? B.J. looked like B.J. to me. Mir is who really impressed me. I think we might be seeing the next heavyweight champ.

a huge mir coming out determined is a scary thing. mir really impressed me but so did kenflo. i thought guida couldnt wouldnt be finished by him. fitch didnt look great and struve is lucky that buentello wouldnt finish. i was hoping to see the hendricks fight so bad tho.

To his credit, Mir did his homework, but he won a fight he was expected to win.

BJ/Diego was the FOTN for me.

I can't complain about Johnson getting SOTN, it was a toss up between him, Mir fight and Kenflow. But I definately saw Kenflow/Guida as FOTN.

I don't get how a fight that doesn't make it out of the 1st rd gets fight of the night........I would think fight of the night would be a long hard fought battle.......I think it should have went to Struve vs Buentello or Diego vs BJ........

I would give Mir submission of the night.

Fight of the night should go to Guida and Florian.

Knock out of the night is a good choice, Belcher looked great.

The real story of the day though is Mir. He looked absolutely great. I believed he could beat brock in a rubber match already, but this makes me that much more sure. The 20+ lbs of muscle will help even out the physical part of the game and Frank is a better grappler and striker.

When you say Belcher looked great you can only be talking about his fight because he looked ridiculous. Cornrows and the worst tattoo on the planet. Someone needs to tell him white guys should not wear cornrows, and his Johnny Cash tattoo would make the man himself roll over in his grave. . .

BJ was BJ, and crushed another LW's dreams. People need to quit calling themselves the best before the beat him. BJ is the man, and he just keeps proving it over and over.

I'm sorry I doubted Mir. Kongo looked pretty weak last night, and Mir looked unbelievable. I think someone else said it, but we might be looking at the next heavyweight champ. His striking looked crisp, and his ground game is sick as ever. With his new size, and determination he is downright scary. I still can't stand him though.

Kenny looked ridiculous last night too. I can't believe how quickly and easily he took care of Guida. I was pretty shocked by that one. Good for him though. Not a big fan, but it was nice to see him bounce back.

I thought it was kind of cool that the undercard guys were able to pick up a few extra bones.
