    This was a night of good fights with disappointing endings for me

    Was hoping to see Barnett win but Browne showed that he is for real. Meisha/Rouesy was a good fight but I think it'll be the last Rouesy fight I watch. I really can't stand she is the antithesis of everything I like about the sport.

    All I can say about the ending to Anderson/Weidman is "unfortunate" . Weidman was looking like he was on the way to proving the first fight was no fluke. This ending will leave room for some to question the legitimacy of his wins.

    Sad to see a great career ending like that.

    Weidman is the champ case closed I see douche bags on twitter crying for an immediate rematch GTFO here Silva got stopped twice in a row and was losing both fights when it happened. Silva is fucking 38, he isnt indestructible anymore.
    I will agree wholeheartedly that Weidman dominated the fight - nobody could conceivably argue otherwise, to be sure. I was simply arguing that the finish of the fight in itself was entirely neutral, and to celebrate it as a finish win (in the sense of a true finish) via 'checked leg kick' for Weidman is a bit disingenuous at best. You can't take anything away from Wediman here, but to credit him as having conceived this leg-kick-finish strategy is, as I see it, incredulous.

    People hated and loved Tyson. Rousey is no Tyson, but she had everyone where I was watching the fight going nuts over her domination.

    I was assuming there would be some kind of in-ring announcement if they were planning on bringing him back. Did they show him on camera at all?? I was expecting to see him at least once if he was in attendance.

    I do not keep up with kickboxking. How often does that type of break happen? To you guys that do watch kickboxing a lot.

    If Chris shot for a takedown and Silva threw his knee into his face and KO'd him would that be legit? Same shit bro

    Don't mean to play devils advocate here, but with all this discussion here, lets be real.

    Lets say things went a little bit differently. Lets say that Anderson landed that leg kick and shattered Chris' leg. Would everyone here have the same reaction as they are having now?

    Not that everyone wouldn't be in agreement, that it's a tragic event. But I doubt people here would be talking about it in the same way.

    Meltzer wrote today that Lesnar is playing both sides against the middle with regards to WWE and UFC offers, trying to up his price tag with a bidding war and given the GSP loss and now, Anderson too, Meltzer mentioned that while Lesnar is unlikely to comeback given his health, if the money is right he'd be down, so he's testing the waters. Was curious if they'd mentioned anything further...

    I was thinking maybe, since tonight was such a big card, they'd announce him for the UFC HOF and do something synergetic with his WWE WM run....

    NO everyone would be talking about how amazing the leg kick was and how Silva is the greatest.
