it's tough to say. after the first 2 fights i was like, WOW, this is looking awesome. Then cro cop broke my heart, the judges gave bisbing a blow job....the main event was good, but i usually judge an event by how satisfied i feel afterward...and honestly, i felt pissed.

The fights were good i'd say tho.

I liked some of it ..i'm glad it was free though. I wouldn't re-watch the Rampage - Hollywood fight, kind of boring in a way. And the Hamill -Bisping was an upset ...I really am impressed with Houston Alexander ...he's tough!

do have an illegal hook up lol or just a low attention span

lol

but seriously tho i also got sooo bored of the good luck chuck commercials

your idea is good....but only if you order the ppv.....and they showed you all the undercards.....i wanted to see the polak fight

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

I rather enjoyed the PPV event on the whole. I was a little shocked and annoyed by that judges decision on the Hamill-Bisping fight(The UFC picks the fights to favour their posterboys, but they don't pick the decisions, so those two judges were marking on a different criteria), but all and all I had fun watching it.

I'm not sure, but was I the only one that was happy that when Henderson got side mount, he started working Rampage with the body knees? Like c'mon, 99% of the guys in the UFC soon as they get side mount, they try for full mount instead of just railing away at the guys ribs with knees to break him down. Later Rampage started doing the same to Henderson. It was interesting to see that sort of Pride influence in that fight. I thought it was a decent match overall but I know others don't like all the grappling, but whatever.


(edit)Oh and as for the Kongo/Cro Cop fight, I won a bet with a co-worker that Kongo if he was aggressive, would take the fight. Cro Cop unfortunately just has too many very large holes in his game to exploit.(/edit)

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The first two fights were great, so that really got me pumped for the rest of the event, and while the rest wasn't quite as rivoting as the beginning, it was still a very cool show. I think it was a little tainted by Crocop having a horrible showing and Bisping getting the nod, but that's how it goes in this sport. I just feel if those two fights hadn't bugged me, I'd have enjoyed it alot more. The Rampage/Henderson fight was pretty remarkable from a technical standpoint, simply because their ground transitions, boxing, and clinching were all really sharp. On the other hand, I thought it was pretty average as far as action was concerned. I guess that's to be expected from two guys who have to be so careful with each other, but I was hoping for just a few more fireworks.

I enjoyed the fights. I think if Hendo drops to middleweight, he will be unstoppable. Props to Matt Hamill for his effort. I thought it could go either way simply because it was in London. I thought Bisping closed the gap in the 3rd round. Hamill clearly won the 1st round. The second i would give the nod to Hamill by a slight margin. As for Mirko, i dont think hes done. He just happened to run into 2 powerhouses in a row. Maybe he should drop down to light heavyweight. I wonder if Alexander got knockout of the night?

Al fights were great, even the Bisping fight. Sadly the digusting outcome tainted the card.

Awesome card.

Far FAR to many commercials though - lol
