loved it!

worst part of my night was when Melvin said he wants to fight in Houston. I am going to Battle On The Bayou & was really hoping he'd want to fight in NOLA

besides that & the judge who scored Cruz/Faber 50-45, i thought it was awesome. i don't even like tito & im happy for him. awesome awesome night of fights

Great night of fights IMO......Tito....what can I say, I was going to be sad to see an old favorite retire but I have to wait to see how happy I am about the win (his comments usually are atrocious!). Guillard, Leben Condit and Njokuani were all impressive. Bader throwing kicks was horrible, Simpson was boring as hell, Tavares made that fight IMO. Bowles also failed to impress with his inability to sink in the RNC. Dos Anjos was a pleasant surprise really, as was the heart of Winner, I really thought he was done in the end of that first round. Wiman got completely robbed! The main event went exactly as Blue planned and predicted and to be honest it was a really good match! The two rookies looked.....well like rookies to be completely honest.....Bellator level at best. I don't see either making any ripples in the UFC. Lastly, but never leastly, Wanderlei Silva......I believe he needs to strongly consider retirement as a coach. I think the UFC could use him on an international TUF as a coach so long as it didn't result in an end of the season superfight.

Yeah definitely, such a great card full of great surprises. Sad to see Wandy go out like that but hopefully he gets one more easy win so he can retire on top, he deserves it. Just don't want to see him lose no more.

Tito Ortiz is still the man! Melvin & Condit deserve #1 contender fights most definitely after tonight. Tito deserves another top 10!

It's not often you have FOUR legit contenders for Knockout of the night. I can't Argue with the choice of Condit...it was probably the ost flashy one and Carlos deserves it. But they've given out multiple KO of the night bonuses before, and on practically any other card, either Dos Anjos, Guillard or Leben would have won the KO bonus. That alone was worth the price of admission.

Ortiz winning was insane. Not only because everyone, including myself, counted him out, but the way he did it and how fast he did it caught me off guard. BIG TIME! Huge upset, keeps Tito around for awhile, and even thought I'm not an Ortiz fan, I can't help but feel good for him. I'm curious to see who he gets next! I don't see him winning many more like that, but I'm not going to be so quick to count him out next time.

Siver/Wiman was controversal in my opinion, since I had Wiman winning two rounds to one, with the second round VERY decisive. The 6 people that were in the room watching it at my place were split 3-3 on the decision, but hey, keeps it interesting.

ANd the main event was a classic. Entertaining, Technichical, fast paced, and kept me on the edge of my seat. I want to know what the judge who scored it 50-45 Cruz was smoking so he can share some of it with me, but other than that, Awesome fight.

Best Card of the year, Easily. 10/10. 5 stars. No complaints whatsoever.

Don't usually rave this freely, but damnit, I'm STILL PUMPED!!!

Can't wait to see the 135ers and 145ers fight on TUF. You usually get a lot of gassers on the show, shouldn't be a problem with this group.
