The only bit that surprised me is the cut of several British fighters, they carry the British cards. But the hard truth is, much as I love how British fighters are generally finishers, they don't handle grinders too well. UFC loves finishers, but you need to be able to surpass the grinders.
I think the UFC expected these two in particular to come through last weekend, and they just didn't look great. Worn down fighters like Shogun and Wand, stick them in Brazil and they transform. Didn't happen in England this week, it was a great opportunity for Sass and Mills.
Fitch... Dana has never liked his fighting. The Silva fight was cool, but I think Dana has always had it in for him, and being dominated for 3 rounds was enough to make the cut.
Volkmann I feel sorry for.
