I am so happy that Rampage got the win. Who would have ever thought Jackson would win with a decision, let alone throw some kicks at Machida. He doesn't deserve a shot at the title though, yet. Damn, when Machida was putting Rampage in an armbar, I was screaming for the slam and when he started to pick him up I jumped out of my seat. I was so fucking ready to see Machida go through the canvas. Machida knew exactly what was coming, hahaha.
BJ PENN!!! Man, there happened to be a ton of rednecks at the sportsbar I went to who all cheered for Matt as he came out and I was one of few people who were screaming for BJ.
Imagine how I felt. BJ is a beast, we all know that. BJ VS Cerrone is stupid; Cerrone doesn't need to be dead on arrival. He should put on a few fights at WW while the LW division stirs itself up.
Phil Davis. Impressive win. Tim Boestch isn't as much of a "run-through" as many considered him to be and Phil still dominated him, although, he couldn't take Tim down at will. That submission was brute. I really, really hope that Davis can greatly improve his striking because he will definitely be in contendership faster than he thinks and like it has been said; Mr. Wonderful will collide with Bones. It's inevitable. I could see him getting loser of Bones/Bader, but I hope the UFC lets him improve more. He threw a lot of big kicks btw.
I don't really care what anyone says, Harris VS Falcao turned out exactly how I thought it would, except with Falcao getting the decision, and it was a good fight. Even though the fight had KO written all over it, I expected them both to respect eachothers power too much but I had no idea Falcao was a former 2x wrestling champion. When he was easily stuffing Geralds TD's, I knew it over. Harris played it smart by keeping distance and not engaging in too many striking battles with a former HW, Chutebox, MT knockout artist. Gerald is pretty damn fast too with his jabs, but wow... Falcao is fucking scary with his strikes. So much ferocity and ruthlessness in his strikes. He will surely collect a nice highlight reel in the future and I feel sorry for his next opponent.
Pissed that Simpson lost that fight. Sad for Karo. Good for Lentz and Kelly. Welcome Barboza.
