Very interesting night of fights. Few thoughts about the main card:
- Benavidez vs McCall
: I hated this fight happen so soon after they lost to Mighty Mouse. Nonetheless, it was good to see Benavidez win, but hated seeing McCall being winless in 3. Just mixed feelings in that one.
- Maia vs Fitch
: Maia is a monster. I expected it to be a close fight, but Maia gave Fitch no room to be breathe. I like that he's a pitbull at 170. A lot of great contenders at WW. Seriously why the hell would GSP move up to fight Anderson now?
- Overeem vs Big Foot
: I knew that if Overeem played the same stupid hands down game he did with Lesnar, he would eventually get caught. He didn't become the K1 champion by putting his hands down. He always used to have a high guard. Teaches him a lesson. The HW picture is really fucked. Wonder if the winner of Struve/Hunt will get the title shot now? Kind of weird but isn't that the only one that makes sense timing wise?
- Rashad vs Lil Nog
: Rashad did not look good at all. I don't know why he didn't bother throwing leg kicks at least. Lil Nog's takedown defense was solid and is improving with each fight. Why not have a rematch with Shogun for fun
or at least Shogun vs Rashad; that's still a new fight to put on. Also, as Dana said, Weidman is the only one that's left for Anderson.
- Aldo vs Edgar
: I personally scored it 48-47, but I think people going nuts over the 49-46 like it was a robbery may need to watch the fight again. The 3rd and 5th round were both very close. Only the 4th went clearly to Edgar. Nonetheless, it was too bad that Aldo abandoned his leg kicks after the 3rd round as it was a huge difference maker. Edgar is just awesome. It just sucks how close of a 2nd place he is at 2 weight classes. He is probably the only guy who is still one of the top p4p fighters after 3 straight losses. It really should be Aldo vs Lamas next, but that text message from Pettis now may say otherwise. That would be a crazy fight.
Overall great event.

Maia is going to be a real threat at WW..When u picture him fighting GSP though you see it going down very similar to AS/Maia minus the douchey dancing antics.
Oh yes! I loved that too.....I kinda wish Maia could go over to bellator for just one fight....
oh the joy I would have seeing him do that to Askren....
.......ugh...I've been driving the Overeem bandwagon for sometime now, last night fucking sucked! But I have to give credit to Bigfoot, he's no fucking joke. He was a champ for a good reason and on any given night he's a dangerous fighter. Overeem is not "over rated" he just got lazy and thought he was Anderson Silva. He also forgot how to recover after he gets hurt, or maybe he never learned. Standing there and exchanging shots was dumb, had he shot or maybe even rolled and pulled guard, he could have survived and won the fight by two rounds. He has to do a better job at thinking in the cage, that's the difference between winning and losing for many top fighters. I did like his wrestling game in the 2nd. I hope he continues to improve that. Otherwise this was a huge loss for him and now Bigfoot has become the man who beat Fedor and Overreem. This is no "small feet"......
I hope beating Rashad earns Little Nog some respect and much needed attention. he didn't finish him, but I think he can make the case to take on another top contender and start making a run. I'd love to see one of the nogs hold a UFC belt, Big Nog probably has a better chance though....
I think Aldo clearly won the fight. Frankie is tough and lands lots of little shots and nice combos. But he get's his ass kicked by more athletic fighters. It's a sport but it's also a fight. and judges are going to be less inclined to give a fight to a guy who looks like frankie does at the end of a fight, especially when Aldo barely seems to have a scratch on him. That superman punch of the cage needs to be a Gif. because that was fucking awesome!
