Just wondering how you guys feel on this matter. Personally, and I may just be tired, and/or sad thanks to Penn, but I felt it wasn't.

Before the event, I was sure this card would go down in history as one of the best...now..not so much

What do you guys think?

Compared to 91 or 92, not at all. GSP/Penn and Machida/Silva fights saved the card from being quite forgetful. Those two fights were sick though.

I was really stoked during the Guida fight as well, but looking back this probably not the greatest fight.

I loved it, personally. I enjoyed each fight.

I thought the Guida fight was exciting, Machida knocking out Thiago was awesome, GSP vs Penn was fun as well, along with Jon Jones showing some nice technique and a killer elbow that was great. Not to mention the Karo fight had some sick throws and transitions.

I thought it was enjoyable.

For sure, It was fun watching him tonight.

Also, the F on the +rep was meant for "for sure", only my laptop hit send early, lol.

I really wasn't feeling this event. I was bored the majority of the time, and that NEVER happens with me and MMA.

Jon Jones was the bright spot in this event.

Edit: Maybe it's because I'm sick. Probably is.

You know what, I'm not going to let Penn ruin this event for me....although I was really sad. I did enjoy this event. There was some awesome fights, and some awesome stoppages that hardly anyone expected. Like Machida's Ko of Silva, and Gsp's complete domination of Penn...this event was great.

I actually thought the GSP fight was the biggest let down. After all that hype I wanted a back and forth match where both fighters brought their A game. What a waste.

I think the Jones/ Bonnar fight saved the entire night. That was some of the flashiest fighting i think i've ever seen in the UFC. I was stoked out of my mind by the end of that fight and I cant wait to see more of him. Can I get Jones versus Anthony Johnson???? PLZ!

I was also stoked for Guida vs. Diaz, but honestly I think nate's reach slowed the pace a lot. Props to Clay for fighting through it though. I love how he just goes his hardest from start to finish no matter what. He should have a title fight sometime soon... can I get a Guida vs. Florian???

Other than that, I felt like the card was very lack-luster and predictable. glad I didn't buy the ppv. I just saw it at a bar.

Evil will always triumph over good...

Because good is dumb.

Machida and GSP pulled it off, but the split decisions wear on me. anticlymatic.

Umm, i'm a long established fan of the carpenter and that was his least exciting fight i've seen. Greco LnP to eek out a split decision. I don't blame him for looking for the W but Nate was getting the best of him on the feet (since when was using reach a bad thing? hmph.) and putting him in trouble on the ground. Hugging a guy for 11 of 15 minutes = weak, lame, boring LnP.

if you think Silva is going to award that performance with a fight against a valuable asset like Florian -- especially when BJ will now be in need of LW competition -- i think you are quite off base. Clay is the definition of gatekeeper and i, for one, just hope he gets back to his more exciting ways.
