     This was a nice first win for Kurt Pellegrino. Assuncao started the fight throwing weird slapping punches, Pellegrino took him down almost immediately, once they were on the ground, Pellegrino beat him up, took his back, locked on the rear-naked choke, and finished the fight. I really like Kurt Pellegrino.

      This was a pretty fun little Lightweight fight... The fight started with Justin James working his standup skills against Guida, but then Guida took him to the ground, and spent most of the first round pounding away at him... After a few minutes, Justin James locked on an armbar, but Guida somehow escaped (which was honestly pretty amazing)... After escaping, Guida continued to pound away at Justin James until the end of the round... The second round basically started with Guida taking James to the ground, and pounding away again, until eventually he caught James with a solid shot, then started pounding away even harder, until Justin James rolled over onto his stomach in a lame attempt to defend himself, allowing Guida to lock on the rearnaked choke for the quick submission victory... Justin James did alright, but I don't see him making much of an impression in the UFC... Clay Guida on the other hand, I look forward to seeing again...

      I was kind of bored for the first two rounds of this fight, Okami was his usual self, and Starnes seemed to have the slightly better striking, so neither guy was really running away on the scorecards. In the third round though, Okami rocked Starnes early with a big punch, he chased him down, took him to the ground, got the mount, and punched Starnes in the head repeatedly until the referee stopped the fight. Okami is well on his way to having a nice little winning streak here.

      This fight was kind of surprising... At the last UFC PPV, former Lightweight Champion, Jens Pulver, got knocked the fuck out by Joe Lauzon (Dan's older brother)... So coming from Jens Pulver's team, Spencer Fisher was scheduled to fight the 18 year old Dan Lauzon... I assumed Spencer Fisher would crush Dan, but for the most part, Dan Lauzon dominated the first round of this fight... It wasn't until a little over halfway through the first round, that Spencer Fisher finally got the upperhand, and started throwing standing elbows & knees to the head of Lauzon... Dan Lauzon eventually I think just got scared & assumed he wasn't going to be able to win, so he just fell to the ground & curled up in a fetal position, so I guess Fisher wins by KO? (The guy wasn't knocked out, he just gave up, and laid down)... So... Yeah... Spencer Fisher had a good come back, but like he said himself, his wrestling sucks... So if Fisher can improve his wrestling skills, he could be Championship material in the future...

      FUCK... This fight was kind of boring... I honestly thought that Cheick Kongo had a shot at becoming the next UFC Heavyweight Champion... He's been crushing everyone in his path so far, with his great striking game... The problem is, Carmello Marrero (wrestler) took Kongo down at will, OFTEN, and showed that Kongo has absolutely no ground game whatsoever... Anyways, after 3 rounds of Marrero laying on top of Kongo, preventing him from using any offense, Carmello Marrero wins by split-decision...

      This was a pretty bad ass fight... The first round consisted of Hironaka locking on a triangle choke for most of the round, and then Jon Fitch ended the round by attempting to lock on a rearnaked choke... The second & third rounds basically consisted of Jon Fitch taking down Hironaka aggressively, and unleashing the good ol' fashion ground & pound... Other than the first round, this entire fight was pretty much dominated by Jon Fitch, and the judges agreed, giving him the unanimous decision...

      This fight was a war!!! SLAM! SLAM! SLAM! SLAM! SLAM! SLAM!!! Sean Sherk is the fuckin' MAN!!! I've been watching this guy ever since Pride Bushido 2, and he's been one of my favorite fighters ever since... This guy can fucking SCRAP... He pretty much crushed Kenny Florian, for ALL FIVE ROUNDS... Sean would take him down, and then pound away at him... Take him down, and pound away at him... Kenny had some decent kicks while standing, and once they got on the ground (in the first round) Kenny landed an elbow that cut open Sherk's forehead, but that didn't stop the fight... So basically, this fight consisted of Sherk throwing Florian all over the place, while spraying blood all over the octagon like a fucking hose... I have to give credit to Florian, because I was actually kind of scared that he was going to finish Sherk (due to cuts), but Sean Sherk is a bad man, and there was absolutely nothing that was going to stop him from becoming the NEW UFC Lightweight Champion of the World!!! So yeah, Sean Sherk wins deservedly by unanimous decision... GREAT fight...

      This fight left a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach... If you've ever seen the movie "Kickboxer", you might have an idea of how this fight went down... Basically, it consisted of the American fighter who happened to be one of the hometown heroes or whatever (Rich Franklin), taking on the REAL DEAL Muay Thai fighter, who pretty much DESTROYED Rich Franklin in the first round... Anderson Silva got Franklin in that Muay Thai clinch, then started throwing knees, and punches, and death blows, and bombs, and axes, and broadswords, and machine guns, and Saw 3 (coming to theaters October 27th, HA!) and uh... Yeah... Basically Anderson Silva knocked Franklin the fuck out, and made him look like he had no business being in the octagon... Rich Franklin has been one of the most dominant fighters in the UFC for a LONG time, and was considered to be probably the #1 Middleweight in the world... That of course, was until Anderson Silva came to America, and literally made Rich look like a fan from the audience that felt like taking his chances against a veteran professional fighter... Silva's Knee + Franklin's Face = KTFO, first round...
