I don't understand the people of Las Vegas. I thought it was pathetic for people to boo Dos Santos after his performance tonight. I don't understand how people can boo a guy after he lasted 25 minutes the way he did. The audience was straight up pathetic tonight.

Awesome, now we can see some other match-ups for the title, then maybe we'll need to make a third fight.

They lost money.

Most people are just like that. If they invest in an idea and it doesnt live up to their personal investment, they resent that thing. JDS lost people money.

and that is also another reason why you dont bet on the favorite in Vegas.

Exactly, with the winner of Big Nog vs Werdum getting a title shot we are surely going to get Overeem vs Junior now!!!

crowd was very disrespectful...it really varies where you go around the usa and the rest of the world.

It could be that the casual fans are getting too many frequent shows and just not appreciating it as much.

Places like Brazil, U.K and OZ only get a handful of fight cards per year and the crowds are always very good.

I have to admit I got a bit nostalgic watching the prelims with more than half the arena still empty.
