...Also impressed with Frank Mir. ... He's looking big, and I see him being able to take Carwin. He's going to knock Carwin out.



Woah woah woah woah... lets not get ahead of ourselves now, he may have dropped Kongo but Kongo had regained his composure by the time his A$$ hit the mat. Im not sayin its not possible but that is a very BOLD statement right there.


And Carwin has a iron chin?



No, probably not, but he hasnt been KOed and the only thing we can base his chin on is a solid punch from Gonzaga that rocked him momentarily.

Plus Mir hasnt KOed anyone recently either, TKOed a staph infected Nog and dropped Kongo...

again im not saying its not possible...

GREAT EVENT!

most impressive to me.....
diego sanchez was 0 for 19 on takedown attempts. he landed 19 out of 120 strikes.....bj penn tried no takedowns and landed 120 out of 200 strikes. I think most of us expected bj to win, but WOW! i think most of us also agreed that diego had the best chance of beating him....and it was that lopsided?!?!? really impressive bj. he can't just jump to ww and get gsp....he could stand in line like the rest tho. maybe fight a kos or a swick. i think those fights would be fun.
i heard his trainer say that he wants to fight again no later than march. if thats the case, we could be seeing a jump sooner rather than later.
IMO, he shouldnt move up, 155 is where he's his best. the UFC should make it a priority to bring in quality LWs once he finishes cleaning up that devision. maynard and edgar are both near deserving; neither will win, but they're deserving.

most surprising......
how good mir and florian looked. i thought both of them would win their fights, but had no idea they'd look so dominant, especially florian. Mir looked great and he was HUGE, which he's going to need if he's going to evolve with the HW devision. And we all know guida is tough as nails, so that makes florians display all the more impressive. i dont see him fighting bj penn again any time soon, but he does make exciting fights for sure!

disappointing.......
CUT WILSON GOUVEIA!!!!
with all the fighters that get cut, how has he not been??? i mean they cut josh neer?!?!? but not wilson? he's talented for sure, but if he's not going to do enough with his talent, tough luck, hes out.

Will jon fitch ever finish another fight???? maybe not

side note: way to go alan belcher, that was a close decision loss to akiyama. if you give him the nod there, which i may have; he would be on a tear and just as deserving to be in title talk as anyone else. His next matchup should be a good one. Give him a quality opponent cuz alan belcher brings it. he has really won me over

i was most impressed by the quality of the fights on the card. maybe it just seemed better because i was there but i believe it was one of the better cards in a while. bj was the man omg. florian and mir impressed as well. with the exception of the fitch fight all of the fights were very good.

Belcher is my pick. That guys has come full circle in his fight game. I made a thread about it in the lounge.

How much better realy BJ is then the rest of the world at 155. I mean I atleast thought guys like Sherk, Florian, & Diego would give him a competitive fight, but he just embarrasses them.

Also Belcher is really becoming a beast. I mean he's not elite yet but he's really steppin it up, I think 2010 we'll be his cheer to become a title challenger. Also Stefan Struve, even though the heavyweight division still isn't very stack just confusing as hell to see who's the next contender since nobody really sticks out way better over the other, if he keeps going, you could see him up there one day fighting the likes of Gonzaga or Dos Santos again. I might just even give him Gonzaga next.
