I did say this was a high profile main event but don't let that sway you into disagreeing with my real point which is "Each fight should be handled and refereed on a fight by fight basis."



Yes, but there also needs to be some standard or whatever, I don't know how to put it.



Yes, there are standards and we have seen them being implemented over and over again - BUT there should also be flexibility within those standards to reflect the differences in resilience and capabilities of the many and different fighters out there.

I think we're on the same page - maybe not for this particular fight but in refereeing in general.

But I don't think all the ref's have the same standards when it comes to situations like that.

Like some people thought the CJ Keith fight was stopped early and well if Mario was working that fight, he would probably have let it go on longer like he has been known to to do and who knows maybe CJ gets out of that position or survives.

That is the beauty of the human element which can sometimes be a good thing and a bad thing. I personally don't mind every referee being different or having their own standards. That's just me. I'll whine when it doesn't go my way but I'll get over it.

Grappler will tell you he would recommend Android Data to do all the officiating.

Wanderlei's hands looks slower than they've ever been, and he is more afraid to get hit. Belfort would have demolished him, and I think its time for him to bow out.

He does not want to do a Liddell

Wand is a true warrior in every sense of the word.I see him going out similar to liddell on his sword.

He is a little slower due to age and multiple wars.But he can still blitz for at least one round,just was unlucky that that fight wasnt stopped in the secound.

I am a wand fan but I did pick Rich to win. I also would still like to see belfort and wand fight. I see Belfort winning as he somehow seems to be getting better with age.

Went 12-5 last night
Unofficially went 16-6 with Brazil prelims
Let's not ever combine cards again.
Fight was good. Prelims were good.

Best highlight of the night was watching a 5 year old kid do a flying knee and landing it on a 13 year old kid in front of me giving him a bloody nose

My pick for fight of the night

I agree about the combo card. That's why I didn't want it in the first place. Would have went perfect on the prelims with a few 11s. Oh well. It was nice just watching the fights and not having a bias because of how I picked.

I'm out of #1 spot, b/c of some late changes that almost worked, but didn't. Only 5 pts behind though.

Kind of MMA'd out now. A small break before the next event, 2 weeks.
