I was more entertained by this card than I expected to be other than the Kimbo Mitrione fight all the fights seemed at least competitive, more so than I expected.

I've been waiting for Shogun to return to the top for so long, it was all a blur to me. Stout/Stevens was good, Shogun/Machida was the statement I hoped it would be, but I had hoped for a leg kick followed by a flying knee.

I enjoyed them very much- was wowed by stout stephens - knew Kimbo was done for and had expected a KO of machida but in 3rd or 4th after a bunch of punishing leg kicks.

Great card- was surpized Lawler lost-
Happy to see Belcher win- that would be 4 in a row had he not been robbed against sexyamma

It was a good card all in all...the Main event was crazy...was disapointed in the Kimbo and koscheck fights...but I'd say it was about average

Stop it. Belcher wasn't robbed. Joe Rogan simply had one of those stupid moments where he championed the wrong fighter. That fight wasn't as close and the commentary made it sound.

i didnt expect to much from this card but it ended up being really good. the sam stout/ jeremy stephans fight was a very exciting fight. it cleared up the whole kimbo slice thing, it crowned the rightful champion at LHW, and it weeded out an unprofessional punk like daley. i dont care if thats fighter bashing cause theres no excuse for his behavior.

I thought UFC 113 was Fantastic. This was probably the best card of the year so far.....other than the SF on CBS recently :)

I was there and it was amazing, joe doerkson vs tom lawlor was an amazing fight. Doerkson took some big shots and answered back then taps lawlor out. Stout Stephens what else can be said of that fight. I found it kind of crazy how many people were cheering for Kimbo, I took some heat for cheering for Mitrione. The main event all i can say is SSSSSSSSSSHhhhhhhOoooooooogun

Mir/Carwin if you want to count that
Serra and Jackson were the last Undisputed champs to win in the first round I believe.

To be honest I was dissappointed in the fights, canadians didnt do as well as I thought they were gunna 1-6 ouch, I definetly saw them going 6-1 the pressure got to them I guess.

It was a good card with some great fights that, unfortunately, didn't make it on the air.
