Such a great PPV, it was so great, Couture destroyed Gonzaga, what a great win by GSP and Huerta is absolutely amazing, (the elbows using the screen made my day), and of course, we even got the upset, this PPV had it all.

Sorry if this is considered thread bumping, noting that it was found on the 14th page.

But Iíll give my two cents on what I believe was a very good show.

Event kicked off with the underdog Patrick Cote taking on the Couture-trained, and good friend of Tito Ortiz, Kendall Grove. Going into this one, I expected Grove to walk right through Cote, but Cote kept strong on the offensive end, and eventually landed a few that got to Grove. Cote hit Grove with a shot on the side of the head, late in the third, and then fully mounted to take the win over Grove. Glad to see the Canadian take the win here, and hopefully be in line for a middleweight title shot somewhere down the line.

Stevenson-Pellegrino when to the judgeís score card. I hadnít seen much of Pellegrino prior to this fight, but he impressed me during shades of the bout, but really, that doesnít say much. With Sherkís case pending review, we could be in line for a Stevenson-Penn Lightweight championship bout in November, or December.

Huerta-Crane was a great fight. Both were in their element, but it all came down to conditioning, and by the second round, Crane was gassed. Iíll give him credit for his decorated submission work, but Huerta had the edge throughout the entire fight, especially in the third round. I can see Huerta getting a shot at the title sometime next year, but Iíd say heís a fight or two away considering the light heavyweight division is at its deepest point in years.

In all honesty, before the fight, I feared that Koscheck would catch GSP with one that would put away the fight. Little did I know that GSP would polish off Koscheck since the fight began. Never have I seen anyone, anyone, with as much talent as GSP. When it comes to the guyís takedowns, stand up, takedown defense, and ground work, heís unblemished. He was too much for Koscheck to handle, plain and simple. If weíre treated to Hughes-GSP III, next year in Montreal, Iíd be more then happy to attend that show.

Leading way into the main event, I could have seen it going either way. Though Iím glad Couture won the bout, in a rather dominating showing once again. Itís unbelievable that at 44 years of age heís at the top of not only his game, but of the entire division. Couture broke Gonzagaís nose late in the first after a takedown. Bloody fight, and Iím interested to see who awaits Couture in his next defense. Iíd love to see White sign Fedor sometime soon, and really build upon the lackluster heavyweight division.

Overall it was a great show, with every fight on the card bringing something to the table. Bout of the night? Tough one to call, but Iíll go with GSP-Koscheck, only because I was into that fight like none other.

Holy crap.. GSP is the most athletic guy ever born. My eyes popped out when he scrambled out of Koscheck's single leg grap.. that was unreal.
