    Bonnar, on the other hand...

    If the Bonnar or Griffen fights were a fight seen in a movie, people would have complained that they looked so fake. I know neither guy took a dive but they didn't look really, espcially the last punch in the Forrest fight.

    Why the hell did Pee Wee stop throwing any strikes. Standing with his arm extended was not working, he got clocked a couple of times. If he had been a bit more agressive with his strikes, he could have won that fight.

    That bothered the hell out of me. The guy comes in with a reputation for being a great striker, and he fucking sucks at it. His defense is piss poor, and he extends his lead hand making his jab and lead hook nearly useless, removing what should be a primary weapon of his. And since his hand is extended, he can't block anything on that side so every time Nogueira comes forward he clocks him.

    Glad to see Nogueira win, and while Herman is a physical specimen, his style pretty much sucks and he's going to keep getting his head knocked around if he fights higher caliber HWs.

    Loved the main card in general, and Silva put on a classic performance. Everyone is talking down about Bonnar but the guy has fought everybody, he came after Silva and tried to win, and he just couldn't really do anything. Silva's turning into a rope-a-dope guy as he gets older, I don't know how smart it is or how it will effect him alter in life but damn is it entertaining.

    I hope people aren't actually thinking the Silva/Bonnar fight was a fix.. because that would be plain retarded. Did You see the power behind that knee? And where it landed?

    Yeah I thought that was pretty weird. Glad Nog won but I thought it was more a case of Pee Wee looking awful than it was of Nog looking good.

    Silva vs Jones should be next. Lets see who is really as great as they think they are.

    Don't care about anything else.

    I guess that's still better than actually losing to mediocre fighters. As in, getting highlight reeled by mediocre fighters.
