I didn't think Leben's TKO was knockout of the night but I don't know that I could have made a case for anything else. Maybe Attonito

anyone think Jardine gets cut now that hes 2-6 in his last 8 fights? 4 in a row, i cant remember anyone doing that and not getting cut.

i kinda agree with blueskies on the ko of the night. I guess Simpson's stumble across the cage was pretty dramatic compared to Brown and Antonito's TKOs.

We also didn't get to see Noke's TKO so....

I liked Mcsweeny being tko'd as ko of the night. Browne was stronger and faster, cant wait 2 see him fight again.

Even though there was more of a back in forth with Leben v Simpson I think the Browne KO was much more deserving.

Yeah, Leben didn't deserve the KO of the Night. It should have went to Browne or Noke who I guess finished his fight will brutal leg kicks and GnP.

with everyone above. browne should have got KOTN.

McGee is fine for SOTN and jardine/hamill was for sure FOTN.
I think they should cut jardine, but i don't think they will. he is still recognizable and i think they'll use him for one more stepping stone. (maybe we'll see jon jones knock jardine TFO as his last UFC fight, lol.) He won't ever compete at the top again, so his time is waning.

The hamill fight was sooo bloody. thats fine for hardcore fans like us, but i always think a fight that bloody is bad to have on free tv. It shows a bad side (according to skeptics) and can lead those people to jump to the conclusion that its too brutal for tv. great fight tho.
war hamill!

I don't necessarily think they can control the amount of blood that's lost during a fight. It's not like they are blade jobbing.

Probably time to go find Houston Alexander and avenge that loss.

I'd say he's done for now, but I wouldn't be surprised to see him again.

I'm think Browne definatly should have got the KOTN honor. I cait wait to see him fight again. Maybe put him in there against Todd Duffee. That would be a greta fight.
