lol!

I thought it was great. Nick got caught, there's no shame in losing to Shields IMO.

Though not impressive from a technical standpoint, I liked the Diaz fight and the Lawler fight went like I thought it would.

I think all the fights were awesome and the female bout was absolutely ferocious. I had fun.

Thompson was a good matchup. He just got caught.

Thompson was a WW champ in Bodog and he does have a victory over Alvarez just last year.

Very entertaining, but no surprises everyone won that should. I hope they start showing fights which the outcome is a toss up and less predictable.

I like to see....

Frank Shamrock vs. Robbie Lawler
Nick Diaz vs. KJ Noons
Antonio Silva vs. Brett Rogers
Ninja Rua vs. Phil Baroni
Joey Vilisenior vs. Scott Smith
Jake Sheilds vs. Gilbert Melendez
Kimbo Slice vs. A Solid Fighter (But in reality he'll probably fight Sam Adkins)

He was mounted in 20 seconds, it was pathetic.

I saw that also, but with his history, I wouldn't have called that.

UFC 89 which is free is also airing the same time as an October EliteXC Saturday Night Fights... All I can say is goodluck.

A few die-hards on this very forum forgot about this card.

Man, I'm pissed now. A great night of fights and hardly anyone saw it.
You hit the nail right on the head here, hell I missed the first half of the show because I forgot all about it, I logged on here and realized I was missing it flipped over and watched the last half and then had to watch the first half on the encore showing, this show had zero promotion and the ratings show it, Elite XC did there part but CBS really dropped the ball this time.

I'm surprised there are people that didn't enjoy it. I only seen from Baszler v Cyborg though but from there on it was enjoyable. Seems they've ironed out some of the wrinkles production wise too.

Being in the UK, I have no idea how much promotion they did for it, but IMO, this event would have got way more people interested in MMA. As opposed to the 'youtube superstars' last shocker. It was only really the Lawler/Smith fight that saved that last one from total embarrassment.
