It's good to hear the UFC thinks that the DEC is bullsh*t also. Like I've been saying he should take this to the NCAS and try and get this to be a no contest. If there is a rematch do you guys think it can be a main event on a UFN? I am asking because I have a feeling that that is the most likely destination for it becasue that is where this fight took place.

Main event? Even for a fight night never! Hardly anybody even knows who either of these guys are. I'd rather see Mini-Me vs. Bushwick Bill in the main event.

Favs:
Rampage Jackson
GSP
Frank Shamrock
Bas Rutten
Nate Diaz
Nick Diaz

I think he meant the main card, not the actual main event.

i am not sure i would accept a rematch with kevin at this point. i remember Goldie saying something along the line of "according to anthony's body language, he thinks he's been poked in the eye three times now." - not an exact quote, but the best i can remember atm. it seems very likely that this was exactly the case. vision is much too important to risk. i understand that the occasional eye poke does occur, but that was just ridiculous. no way i would get back in the cage with him.

I've had my eye cut from someone putting their finger in my eye during a basketball game. I'll testify to the fact that that shit hurts. Now obviously my injury wasn't nearly as bad as Anthony's, but I don't blame him in the least for screaming in the way he did and falling to the ground.

There is no reason why that fight should now have been ruled (at the very least) a no-contest. It SHOULD be called a DQ since Burns was verbally warned three times by the referee then the referee stepped between the fighters twice to warn him again.

Everyone knows what the fight should have been called as, there's no way it should stand as a TKO victory due to injury.

the outcome of this fight was complete nonsense . it should have easily been a no contest or a disqualification. Its a rule that eye pokes are not alllowed in the UFC is it not. Its beyond me how this fight turned out the way it did. Im done with the UFC and their boring fights and Dana Whites stupid crap, i support affliction all the way.

After seeing that they gave him the TKO victory, I'm leaning that way too. The UFC does have some of the best fighters in the world but there are plenty of other organizations to watch and support..
EDIT: I bought the Affliction PPV and recorded the UFN And I think I'm probably going to save myself some money and just start downloading all the UFC PPV's.

Yeah I meant the main card sorry I am a fast typer and didn't catch that one. I think it is obvious that it would be on the main card of a UFN though.
