Maybe I'm in the minority here, and thats fine. All I know is ive gone from buying every ppv from around 2005-2011 to now refusing to buy anything because ive become jaded with whats been happening the last 2 or so years.
Not a bad card. Disappointed by Pickett and Guillard, both didn't look themselves. Guillard simply doesn't fight like he's hungry any more.
The Gus/Manuwa stoppage seemed spot on imo, it seemed like the beginning of the end and anything else would have been prolonging the inevitable.
Really impressed by the new broadcast team; There's obvious room for improvement in Hardy's interview technique, but the play-by-play/colour commentary was excellent. John Gooden's knowledge is clearly better than Goldberg's, as he was picking up on jiu-jitsu opportunities in addition to his excellent analysis of striking tactics/techniques.
Favourite Fighters: A. Silva, Velasquez, Swanson, Bisping, W. Silva, Barnett, Faber, Dos Santos, Manuwa, McCall, Pickett & Poirier
Least-Favourite Fighters: Story, Sylvia, Browne & Lentz
0-1 on sig bets.
I thought it was a good stoppage, Jimi was done.

I also think that the stoppage was spot on.
It was an interesting fight. I thought as soon as Gus got the take down, he would do more damage or advance position and it surprised me that he was unable to. I was then surprised as to how Gus just exploded with punches and finished the way he did. I didn't see that coming with the way that the striking exchanges were going whenever they were on the feet.
Other notes: always enjoy watching Gunnar's ground work; Pickett didn't seem like his normal self; good to see Johnson get the win although I didn't like Guillard's gameplan; and sad to see Diabate go out like that
