    Can't see the main event as a work. Just a vicious,vicious knee to the sternum that took all the fight out of Bonnar (well, all that was left after Silva's antics against the cage. I can only imagine how psychologically demotivating that was...)

    Bonnar is known for his iron chin, not his iron solar plexus. Move along please, nothing to see here.

    Fitch looked great against Silva, although a TKO or submission would have been better than (yet another) UD, especially as Silva was physically spent by the end of the second. Still, I pity anyone who went for a beer during that fight.

    Glover Teixera needs a name opponent. Bader would be good.

    Speaking of Glover, Bonnar should have taken that fight, lack of Twitter followers be damned!

    Good to see Big Nog shut Pee Wee up.

    Great, great fight card - now lets never speak if the main event again, ok guys?
    Oh noooo let it marinate.

    Anderson Silva:
    Best Fighter on the planet.

    Damien and Silva were acting real buddy buddy at the post presser. I found that odd.

    That was an odd press conference. I don't think Davis was asked a single question...kindve sad considering he had a great performance and finished his fight with a BJJ technique.

    So, Dana said Anderson has two fights left on his current contract.....from a business perspective I really think his stance on not wanting to fight Jones will drastically change during (re)negotiations. Feels like posturing to get the best deal.

    Gentleman and ladies (are there any women on this board?) What we saw tonight was the difference between someone who practices martial arts and someone who's merged it with his soul. I think it would be cruel to make Jon Jones fight this guy, hell it's cruel for any fighter to fight Anderson Silva. He's on a whole nother level from other fighters in that he's come to embody Martial Arts. Yes he's cocky, but so was Bruce Lee as well as other great practitioners. Watching Anderson Silva fight is like watch Ali and Tyson in their hayday. The confidence and absolute conviction of their invincibility must have felt like a denser gravity to their opponents. I think that's what happens with Silva's opponents as well. It's like his opponents become little kids trying to fight their 30 year uncle while his drinking his beer. Believe me I tried when I was seven and got clowned just like Bonner did tonight....The Amazing Anderson "The Spider" Silva.

    Oh and how sweet was it to see Big Nog Sub Herman? not only did he sub Herman, he absolutely tooled him the feet! I love the way he doesn't wast punches or throw wild shots. When he fires he intends to hit, and he usually does. He walked right into his range all night and landed. Most guys bounce around and throw from the wrong distance trying to catch their opponents coming forward. Nog just walks right into the kitchen and takes what he wants from the fridge. I love it!

    I have to give Fitch his respect, he took Eric Silva to school. but fight of the night.....sorry Fitch that honor goes to Glover Teixeira vs. Fabio Maldonado. That fight was like watching a movie, I could not believe Maldonado could take that punishment. That was some heavy and vicious GNP, I could hear the thuds and smacks from elbows and fists! And when he clipped Glover with that Left Hook, man! I wish he had the energy to go for it then! But Glover is the real deal and I can understand how people see him as a threat to Jones. But Maldonado did do some interesting things with his straight jab and left hook. You can bet Jones will study that and utilize it if Glover doesn't fix that hole. All in all a great night of fights!

    "I don't call the fighting in my films 'violent', I call it 'action'. An action film borders between fantasy and reality. If I were to be completely realistic in my films, you would call me a violent, bloody man. I would simply destroy my opponent by tearing his guts out. I wouldn't do it so artistically." ~Bruce Lee

    I am kind of surprised at everyone clowning Bonnar. As much as I think Silva is an exceptional fighter, up until the last few seconds, Bonnar controlled the fight and landed shots that would have KO'd many fighters. I don't know whether Silva has some kind of voodoo protection, but he ate a lot of shots foolishly and I have a hard time believing he did it intentionally.

    Bonnar had him in a lot of danger. Give the guy some credit. He put on a better performance than 90% of Silva's opponents. Just because he missed a flashy kick doesn't mean he went out there and got embarrassed.

    Card of the year...

    best Card I have seen in a while...

    Anderson showed good TDD... That knee he landed was brutal... If anyone has ever trained in Muay Thai and taken a knee to the sternum, you know how bad it is... Its just as bad if not worse than a groin or liver shot.

    Nog looked good despite being around for so long... It was as expected, Herman didnt belong in there with him...

    Maldanado took some serious punishment... Glover has legit power and that was serious GNP... He took a ton of on point left hooks standing and got his face smashed in with punches and elbows on the ground... that was no patty cake GNP... Glover was very impressive, but we need to see him do it against better competition...

    Davis looked excellent... I know a lot of fans are quick to dismiss him because he lost to Evans... Davis vs. Glover possibly? Id like to see Glover fight Rampage, Shogun, or Machida, but those may not be a possibility.

    Fitch-Silva was a great fight... rounds 1 and 2 were phenominal back and forth, and Jon really took it to him in the 3rd. I was very impressed with Fitch, and Silva as well(considering who he was fighting.) Fitch was actually very exciting in this fight, and seemed to "go for it" more imo...

    Fitch vs. Ellenburger or Rory/Bj winner...

    Silva vs. Condit, after he loses to GSP.

    Dude, you do realize Silva had his hands down the whole fight, of course he was taking shots intentionally
