He is the 6.5:1 underdog in the match so I put up $20 just to see what happens. That guy seems massive enough to put up a fight.

Just got round to watching the card (was scheduled for Sunday same time as the NFL so had to record it and watch today)

Quick thoughts:

Why on earth are Rich Clementi and Eddie Sanchez talking smack, yes they won, but how about you challenge for a title or beat a main challenger before running your mouth.

Machida looked fairly impressive, his style just seemed perfect for fighting Soko with his elusiveness but I'm yet to be convinced Machida is number 2. I'd love to see him fight with someone will to throw and be more aggressive, and with a decent ground game.

GSP is an absolute monster, that was complete and utter domination of a fighter I still believe has some left in the tank. GSP on his game could well be pound for pound the best MMA fighter.

Silva vs Liddell was exciting, but kind of sloppy I thought. I know both guys like to swing wildly, but still neither guy seemed to have a gameplan really.

I think Clementi was talking because his opponent was running his mouth a lot.

Its already aired, so its not really a spoiler. I got up at 6 am just to watch it. Fedor won via submission. Whose really surprised? The real surprise is what he looked like after the fight:




I thought it was a pretty dissapointing card, the Misake vs Akiyama fight was exciting, Shinya Aoki almsot got subbed by an MMA newcomer and my boy Gilbert Melendez lost a decision to Ishida :(

dang it, you are really high on Melendez and I wanted to see him fight o well. Now we just gotta get Couture in against Fedor it will be sad to see him fight cans for the rest of his career.

The best fight on the card was hands down the Kazuo Misaki vs Yoshihiro Akiyama fight I suggest you all watch that one. The Ishida vs Melendez fight is worth watching, clearly 2 top 10 LW's going at it.

Fedor won fairly quickly, but I'm impressed with Choi. He has ability. He's a dangerous fighter.

it's hard for anyone to match up with a 7'3 350 pound man, more of a freak fighter than anything

I know im probably late on this, but Brock Lesnar is fighting Frank Mir in UFC 81.... Thats awesome. I think its funny how the odds are Lesnar -200 and Mir +160 if you bet $100. I dont think Lesnar should be that big of a favorite.

I dont see how Lesnar is the favourite in this match not only is it Lesnars debut in the UFC but its only Lesnars 2nd MMA fight. Lesnar is going up against a former UFC heavyweight champ in Mir Who has way more experience then lesnar. I see Mir as more of a favourite and even with Lesnars wrestling background you have 2 also remember that Mir has great submissions and if a less experienced Lesnar is not careful he could be caught in a armbar like Tim Sylvia was. I say Mir wins

I agree I think at worst this should be a -110 -110 fight. But Lesnar should not be a big favorite.

I think Mir wins, just to much expierence,but I think Lesnar can easily develop into a top 3 HWT in the UFC.

Yea but like mentioned before this is only going to be his 2nd MMA fight. That may come with time, but Mir might be able to teach him a lesson or two.

Well, it's true that Lesnar still needs to work on some things, but keep in mind that he's a former wrestler and his ground attack is pretty advanced.

I believe that he'll win this one.

yea but even if u take in count Lesnars wrestling rememeber this Mir has had training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Wrestling & Muay thai Lesnars wrestling skills wont be able to help him once hes trapped in a kimura or armbar. again like i said before look at what happened to Tim sylvia as like Lesnar he wrestled and he got caught in a armbar by Mir. Plus not to mention to be a top guy in the UFC u cant just have one style u have 2 be versatile.

yea, I think Lesnar will do good in time, but other then wrestling Mir is better in every aspect of MMA, Lesnar will wanna get takedowns and lay and pray, I think it either is a boring 3 round fight w/ Lesnar winning or a Mir submission.

I agree i also think this fight will be boring and this fight in my mind gives no hope to the heavyweight division to get more excitng its in my mind the one of the worst classes in the UFC they really have no big star now with couture gone. I say Lesnar even being in ths match is just to try to give a spark to the division since there really is no one who in my mind deserves to compete for the title.

yea I hope Nog gets the title, I like his brother more but Nog is still my favorite HWT. I want to see Mark Hunt in the UFC, I think he can hang w/ anybody, if he gets better ground game people need to watch out, but the thing is a guy like Lesnar would get a lot of takedowns and cruise to a victory.

Yea i agree also Nog is in my mind one of the top guys but its a weak division so it doesent say much. but i really like gonzaga alot of people thnk that his win over Cro-Cop was a fluke but he stood in there with couture and did better then Sylva did so i say if he beats Werdum this month he deserves the next shot.
