I have to admit I was pretty worried, Kos for once was fighting smart and had gone back to his wrestling and wet blanket ways. I thought for sure that I was going to be watching 3 rounds of Kos laying on him for a decision, but Lawler somehow escaped just long enough to put his fists to good use.

Look Loyoto can't get a KO every fight, and as Dana said, people don't KO Hendo.

But though I would have liked to see a KO, his striking against Hendo was masterful. He got him good several times, and I don't think he took a single punch on the feet.

I'm just a huge Machida fan, and have come to really appreciate his style. I think he's going to upset Jones.

I appreciate Machida's style as well but it's not anywhere near good enough to beat Jones in my books. I did'nt think he was impressive tonight either.

He doesn't have to worry about beating Jones, he gets the crack at the belt, and Sonnen/Machida will be a sick fight.

I really don't get the hate for this card. There were a ton of great fights. The Bermudez fight was off the heazy! Saw a crafty leg lock, Uriah has a nice monkey finish, entertaining main event.

What's the problem here? Hendo/Machida was a little dull but not the worst fight in history and the shaub/Johnson fight as well, but it's all worth it when you get to see Kos loose Love to see an old school UFC guy come back and win against a top guy

WAR LAUZON!

Henderson/Machida was terrible but the rest of the card was pretty solid I thought. Some good stuff from Lawler, Faber and the girls.

I still have to see that knee Lawler landed on Kos again. Toxic has me rethinking the whole thing now.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I really didnt think Machida/Hendo was that terrible. I think people have this fantasy in their head of what the fight is going to be and in this one, it was filled with crane kicks and overhand rights and ninjas flying around.

Henderson is a bear, who you don't poke and stay around for. Machida did a ******* job being a pecking vulture. It might not have been fireworks, but it was pretty cool to see how their styles matched up. I don't think people appreciate how crazy it is time a knee to the body as a guy is coming in for a shot.
