I agree 100%, it gets a 5/10.
Lutter not making weight was a huge disappointment to me, and despite Silva's impressive win, Lutter looked depressed on his way in. I think Silva would've won either way, but seeing Captain Cry-me-a-river doesn't make for a good show.
The Smith/Cote fight was pretty boring, but when they started making faces at each other and doing the karate kid crap, it made them both look like fools. Cote should've finished Smith off and started the night off strong, but honestly I think starting off with a boring fight where the fighters are acting like goons set the tone for all the boo'ing (Along with Lutter not making weight).
Rampage/Eastman was a really good fight if you set aside all of the hype. Sadly, everyone was so jacked up for Rampage that I half expected him to slam Eastman through the mat. If you set aside expectations, that was a good fight, but it was plagued by pre-fight hype.
Huerta/***** - What the heck was that? Guy's going to play possum like a little girl? Also, I'd have much rather seen Lyoto's debut. I had no idea who either of those guys were nor did I care.
Crocop/Sanchez just wasn't a good fight. It was cool to see Crocop's debut, but that was a game of cat and mouse. I love to see my favorite fighters win, but I could care less if they're wasting guys who aren't even in their league. That fight would've been over in the first minute if Sanchez didn't keep running.
Anywho, I thought it was a 5/10. Could've been much, much better but then again, could've been worse. I actually hope the UFC throws us something free since there was no title fight, like when the Shamrock/Ortiz fight was called early.
