     This was a pretty quick & simple fight. Shannon Gugerty started the fight by taking Grice to the ground, he locked on a guillotine choke, Grice tried to wrestle out of it, he wasn't able to, Grice locked it on tighter, Grice fell asleep, and the fight was stopped. Pretty good showing by Gugerty, even though there wasn't a lot to see really.

      This really wasn't a very "good" fight at all. C.B. Dollaway (who I happen to not like) started the fight with a failed takedown attempt, hurdling his neck directly into the arms of Tom Lawlor. Lawlor of course did what any sane human being would do, he locked on a tight guillotine choke, Dollaway fell asleep, and BAM... Fight is over in 55 seconds of the first round. Awesome result, but similar to the first fight of the night, not much to really say about it.

      This was a pretty decent fight for a 3 round battle. It was funny, because T.J. Grant kept trying to take the fight to the ground, and everytime he would attempt a takedown, Dong Hyun Kim would reverse it and slam Grant on his ass, and then completely dominate him from the top position for the rest of hte round, with big elbows & punches. Grant had some decent submission attempts, but he came nowhere near winning any of the 3 rounds. Kim wins via unanimous decision.

Submission
(Guillotine Choke)
7:43
      The first round was pretty close, with Jake O'Brien being a little more aggressive, but Jones's counterstriking was far superior, and by the end of the round, the inside of O'Brien's left leg looked like raw meat. The second round, Jones came out a lot more aggressive, eventually knocking O'Brien a bit loopy with a spinning back elbow, followed by a TIGHT guillotine choke (Rogan called it a "no arm D'Arce choke", good call on that description I'd say. But yeah, O'Brien tapped, and then a few seconds later fell asleep. Jon Jones is a bad bad man!

      This was a CRAZY fight! The first round started with Jim Miller taking Danzig to the ground, and pounding on him for a minute. He cut Danzig's head open (really badly) with a big elbow, and from that point forward, we had 15 minutes of blood pouring out of Danzig's head. Ultimately, it was pretty clear Miller won this fight, but I can't help but give Danzig bonus points for heart. He stayed in this fight for the entire 15 minutes, and never stopped attempting submissions, and throwing elbows from the guard, etc... Overall, this was an excellent fight by both fighters!

      Wow! Mark Coleman actually looked pretty beastly in this fight, especially considering his poor performance against Shogun in his previous UFC attempt. The first round, Coleman took Bonnar to the ground pretty easily, and controlled him for a while, but Bonnar did a really good job of trying to gain back the control via submission grappling, and ended up elbowing Coleman from the crucifix position. The second round, Coleman earned those points back, by beating the shit out of Bonnar on the ground, leaving Bonnar's face a bloody mess. The third round was close, but I'd say Coleman controlled it for the most part, and the judges agreed, giving Mark "The Hammer" Coleman his first UFC win since UFC 12, when he beat Dan Severn via Neck Crank submission. It's always cool seeing the old school guys put on a good performance, I do feel bad for Bonnar though, he got man handled by an old man!

      This fight was a pretty great brawl from beginning to end, with all 3 rounds being pretty close. Belcher seemed to have slightly better standup, almost crushing the lead leg of Akiyama with his brutal kicks, and by the end of the fight, Akiyama's left eye was swollen shut. On the other hand, Akiyama seemed to have the more dominant wrestling game, controlling most of the fight whenever it would go to the ground (and he also had really solid standup striking). In the end, I gave the fight JUST SLIGHTLY to Akiyama, (Joe Rogan & Mike Goldberg disagree with me), but the judges also gave it to Akiyama via split-decision. Great fight overall!

      This fight was pretty much a 15 minute grappling match. Jon Fitch the wrestler, and Paulo Thiago the BJJ black belt. In the end, I gave the first round to Thiago, but the last 2 rounds were clearly in the hands of Fitch. Both guys had a pretty good showing, but Fitch controlled the majority of the fight, and was clearly the better grappler. So yeah, decent fight, but it wasn't super eventful. Fitch wins via unanimous decision.

      Hell yeah! I've been a Bisping fan for a while, and I've never really given Henderson the credit he deserves, but yeah, this fight proves that Henderson is the shit! The first round was solid boxing by both guys, Henderson won that round. The second round was more of the same, with Bisping picking up the pace, but he kept circling to his left (Henderon's right) which was a bad idea, because Henderson threw that big right hand, and BLAMO!!! Bisping was out cold, but just to make sure, Henderson dropped a divebomb punch to seal the deal. Dan Henderson wins via knockout in the second round!

      I normally don't get all that pumped about 25 minute fights that go the distance, but this was pretty much a clinic. GSP took Alves down with probably 100 or so takedowns in this fight, completely dominating him on the ground all 5 rounds. On the feet, it was a pretty even matchup, but GSP didn't allow it to stay there very long. In the end, GSP fought like a legend, and Alves fought like a guy that was outclassed. Excellent championship fight overall.

      This was one hell of a revenge match. Brock Lesnar took Mir down in both rounds, without much difficulty at all, and he basically just outweighed him, smothered him on the ground, and beat the living fuck out of his face with HUGE lunchbox punches. Brock Lesnar is crazy strong. Excellent ass beating, Brock Lesnar is officially the heavyweight champ. He's fuckin' insanely strong. Mir looked like ass in this fight.
