The general consensus among those who did not enjoy the fight seems to be that they didn't feel like there was a chance of the fight being ended which is crazy when you consider that both guys have managed to finish over 50% of there fights. I get the feeling that those who did not enjoy it wrote it off as midgets dancing with no chance of a finish before the fight and I doubt any of the people who didn't enjoy it actually watched it with an open mind.

Either way despite getting called out in the official thread for saying it was a great fight I feel the poll vindicates my opinion.

I personally just didn't find it to be entertaining. It's one of those fights where the punches are landing but the fighters arent being phased. It's the same reason why Evan Dunham's fight wasn't instantly FOTN. Punches were big on both ends, but neither man was put in any trouble so it just didn't captivate us that much.

I was there and I have to say I was bored out of my tree watching the fight. Call me a non-MMA fan but I have zero interest in watching 125lbers fight. I said to my gf and the guy beside me that this was going to be 25 minutes of boredom before it started and I was right.

There was some good action in the fourth, but two fights broke out in my section during the fight and everyone agreed they were more entertaining.

The worst fight of the night was Hamill vs Hollett. Absolutely atrocious. Dana should start handing out penalties to WFOTN (worst fight of the night) so you lose 25 percent of your purse or something. It was an atrocity.

When I originally found out Penn and MacDonald was scrapped and that Johnson-Benavidez was the main event I thought the card was laughable.

I'm definitely biased though in that I enjoy watching bigger, more physically imposing fighters compete.

Naturally when Jones was added to the card I went to kijiji to get some tickets.

Umm... are you looking at the numbers, Toxic. You claimed most would agree it was a great fight. It's more than 2 to 1 against that. You are just justifying your position by saying those didn't enjoy it was only because they didn't go in with an open mind. Deciding that you are simply more enlightened than the people who disagree with you doesn't vindicate your opinion. You can have your opinion but don't try to make judgement calls as to why others didn't like the fight.

Did you ever feel a finish was coming? You just get a feel for it after a few rounds that no finish is coming...not to mention neither guy has ever been finished - i think just about everyone was picking a decision here.

Your stance was that most here would see the fight as great. Here's your original statement.

17 - Great
16 - Good
26 - Indifferent or not exciting
3 - Bad

That is 45 to 17 on people not seeing it as a great fight. That is about a 2.5 to 1 ratio against your original statement. Even if you count the good as agreeing with your FOTY stance - which you shouldn't since most are in heavy agreement that Dunham/Grant was FOTN - that would put it at 33 to 29. Which is just slightly above a 1 to 1 ratio.

Numbers don't lie.
