     This was an interesting fight. When standing, I thought Peralta had the advantage, throwing nice (but wild) combinations, and controlling most of the fight on the feet. But Payan spent way more time in top position on the ground, dropping short elbows, and controlling MOST of the fight down there. So going into the third round, I thought Payan had the advantage, so Peralta came out like a madman, throwing Vitor vs. Wanderlei style punches, knocking Payan the fuck out. Really solid win for Robbie Peralta.

      This fight was pretty crazy. Macario has some badass striking skills, and was able to pick apart Voelker for the entire fight, leaving him a bloody mess. Macario was relaxed, crisp, and brutal. Voelker has tons of heart, and never stopped coming forward, but he ended up looking like a zombie, and was completely outclassed in this fight. Awesome show of skills by William Macario.

      This was a really good fight, between two really powerful fighters at 170. John Howard won the first round, with some solid grappling skills, I was GOING to give Bahadurzada the second round, until Howard picked him up, and unleashed one of the most brutal "walk across the octagon" slams I've ever seen, dropping Siyar on the back of his head. The third round was pretty much Howard kicking Siyar's ass for the entire round as well. So yeah, hands down, John Howard won this fight, great fight overall.

      This fight was a pretty good grappling match, beteen two guys that aren't afraid to strike with each other. Both guys brought a pretty good fight to the other, but in the end, Dennis Siver won the first & third rounds, I gave the second round to Gamburyan, and the judges agreed, giving the fight to Siver via unanimous decision.

      Well, this fight was fine I guess. Michael Johnson basically knocked out Tibau early in the second round. Other than that, I can't really remember anything worth mentiniong. This fight almost put me to sleep for some reason. Maybe I'm just too focused on the main events?

      Well, that was weird. Uriah Hall basically kicked Chris Leben's ass for a round, and then BRUTALLY destroyed him in the last 10 seconds or so. Once the fight was stopped, in between rounds, Chris Leben said he didn't want to fight anymore, so the fight was stopped. I guess Chris Leben is done for good, eh?

      Wow, Diego Brandao is usually a beast, but he came into this fight 8 pounds overweight for some reason, and looked like shit. Dustin Poirier basically picked him apart for the majority of the first round, and eventually broke him down against the cage and forced the referee to stop the fight due to punches. Dustin Poirier looked great, but Brandao was VERY disappointing.

      I have no idea why this fight was booked. I know Jim Miller lost his last fight, but before that, he was one of the top guys in the world in my opinion. With that being said, I had Camoes ranked somewhere around #97 in the division, so I didn't really feel like he had any place in the octagon against a guy like Jim Miller. I was right. In less than a round, Jim Miller put him on lockdown, securing the submission with a tight armbar from his guard. Good way to get back on the winning track for Miller, but for Camoes, why is he still in the UFC?

      FUCK! Josh Barnett is my favorite fighter, but he just got destroyed by the guy I had ranked as the #2 Heavyweight in the world. So, I guess if you're going to lose, you should lose to guys like that. But yeah, Barnett shot in for a takedown, pressed Browne up against the fence, Browne did his trademark "elbows to the side of the head of the guy trying to take me down" move, and knocked Barnett the fuck out at ONE MINUTE of the first round. Travis Browne is no fucking joke man, give this dude a title shot SOON.

      This fight was fucking insane. The build up to this fight, resulted in two people that hate each other more than possibly anyone I've ever seen fight before. I've been a big Rousey fan for a while, so I wanted her to win this, but I can definitely understand why she lost a lot of fans after the way she acted on The Ultimate Fighter. WITH THAT BEING SAID, this fight was fucking awesome. Ronda's Judo throws were fucking insane, every time Miesha would shoot in for a takedown, Ronda would THROW HER across the octagon, and slam her down like a wet paper sack. Ronda is fucking brutal. In the end, Miesha put up a hell of a fight, but as usual, nobody can handle the Ronda Rousey armbar, and this time, Tate tapped before having her arm snapped. This fight was seriously awesome though, best fight I've seen in a while.

      GOD! FUCK! NO! AAAAAAAAAH... That fucking sucks... I was ready for Anderson to come back and DESTROY Chris in this fight, but man... This is no bullshit... Weidman kicked his ass in the first round. The second round, they came out, Anderson was throwing kicks to Chris's leg, and one big kick snapped Anderson's leg in half (like the Corey Hill injury), and Anderson collapsed, with his leg flailing around like a sock with rocks in it. Pretty fucking gross. This really sucks. Holy shit... Oh man oh man... There you have it. I guess Chris Weidman is still the champ, and I'm ASSUMING Anderson is going to have to retire now? That fucking sucks.
