Decision

     I wasn't really feeling this fight at all. I gave the first round to Haseman, for some reason. The rest of the fight was all Evan Tanner though, as he was able to take Haseman to the ground, and hit him with punches & elbows, cutting Haseman's face, and wearing him down. So in the end, the fight goes to Tanner, and all 3 judges agreed.
88.7
Decision

      This entire fight was basically just Babalu taking Elvis to the ground, punching him in the face, cutting him open, hurting him badly, and then the round would eventually end. That happened 3 times, and the fight was stopped a few times to check Elvis's cuts, because he was bleeding pretty badly, but it went all 3 rounds, so good show by both guys, but Renato Sobral CLEARLY won this fight, no questions asked.

Decision

      Well, that was a waste of 15 minutes. Two guys I've never heard of, wrestle around for 15 minutes. Miller stayed on top for most of the first 2 rounds, and Zikic stayed on top for the third round, so I gave the fight to Miller, 29-28. The judges agreed, and gave the fight to Miller via unanimous decision.

      Holy shit! Genki Sudo might be my new favorite fighter. He does all kinds of crazy Kung Fu showmanship stuff, dancing around, looking like he's insane, and then when he throws people, he fucking SLAMS them, and when he goes for submission, he goes fucking crazy. He threw out a flying triangle in this fight, and eventually finished the fight with a flying rear-naked choke, that was the fastest rear-naked choke I've ever seen. Genki Sudo is fucking insane, and REALLY fucking awesome. I loved this fight.

      BAM! That was fast! They both met in the center of the Octagon, Weir threw a wild kick, followed immediately by a series of punches, that knocked Jackson the fuck out. He literally ran right through Jackson, and then walked away like he hadn't even been in a fight. Mark Weir looked fucking amazing in this fight!

      HOLY SHIT! This fight was insane! Frank Mir has seemed unstoppable since coming to the UFC, but Ian Freeman fucking DESTROYED HIM. Freeman attacked him with brutal punches, pinned him against the cage, and just literally beat every ounce of fuck out of Mir, that is humanly possible to beat out of someone. HE FUCKING SMASHED HIM. DESTROYED HIM. Ian Freeman is fucking brutal, and I've never seen him look this dominant before. Awesome fight.

      This fight was pretty much what you'd expect from a Matt Hughes in his prime. He took Newton to the ground in all 4 rounds, and beat him up, with short punches & elbows, and knees to the body. The fourth round, he pinned Newton down in the crucifix position, and punched him in the face until Newton verbally was forced to submit. Awesome win for Hughes, and it definitely clears up any question from their previous fight, about who the real champion is.
