I was shocked some people seemed to be dissapointed in this fight cause I thought it was a FOTY contender and was incredibly entertained by what I thought was an exciting fight. That said what are others opinions?

It was neither particularly entertaining or exciting. Anybody claiming that was FOTY completely baffles me.

I loved this fight too. The speed, movements, scrambles, etc... Round 4 was awesome! What's up with the booing from a booer's perspective????

Thought it was pretty good, wasn't the greatest of fights though.

What a coicidence anybody claiming it was anything but entertaining and exciting baffles me. I can't see your point of view considering that fight had fast back and forth technical exchanges, submission attempts, Benadivez had DM rocked at one point. It had it all really.

The 4th round was good, but overall for me, I just didn't really care.

People enjoy watching larger than life / freak athletes battle. And although these guys are fantastic athletes, you just don't seem to get the BONE-CRUSHING ACTION that you do with the bigger guys.

The 145 belt is OK, but really it's all the classes over that which are the most exciting for me.

But back to your original point... as someone who is a fan of the sport but not a super fan. I watched and enjoyed the fight but, probably won't remember it. I felt the booes were justified to the drunk adrenaline junkies (not that I condone boo'ing, but I get why they booed).

Freaking awesome fight. This is coming from someone who is far less interested in seeing the really small guys fight. I cant help it, I always get excited to see the big boys fight. It probably has something to do with the fact that i'm a big guy and my wife has like 3 inches and 20 pounds on these guys, but I just do not get as excited to see the little guys go at it as I do the big guys.

That being said, this was an amazing fight. The technique, speed, and overall excitement that the fight produced was the second best on the card (the near submission of Jones being the most exciting moment in my opinion).

The fourth round was just amazing. My wife, who actually doesn't follow much mma, commented "i bet these guys would be even more exciting on the ground". As soon as the fourth hit and the scrambles ensued I knew she was right. That round was off the hook. Great fight.

Except for anything approaching entertainment or excitement outside of round 4. It just wasn't that great a fight. It was two guys point fight for 4 rounds and one round with a rock and a bad sub attempt.

Indifferent, it was filler. I don't care even the slightest about that division and two small guys going wild doesn't entertain me as much as it seems to entertain some.

FOTY? Yeah I could see that, I could've seen it going either way. Enjoyed it more than Jones/Belfort.
