Disappointed to see Gonzaga lose, dude has charisma and I just like seeing him fight, but Santos is on a fucking warpath.

The blow on Vera was disgusting, I'm surprised he didn't open him up with that, that elbow hit fucking hard.

A great night of fights overall, and now I'm really pumped for UFC 111 (is it 111?).

Well, Dos Santos destroyed Gonzaga. I say they put him up against Cain Velasquez next. Winner of that match could face whoever emerges as champion in the Lesnar/Carwin/Mir triangle which should be finalized by July.

Dos Santos vs Velasquez would be EPIC. You gotta wonder if the UFC would risk throwing their two top up and comers into a match already.

Can't wait for Saturday.

I don't see Hardy doing much saturday night.St Peirre should have no problem beating him.
Carwin/Mir should be a blood bath.If this goes 3 rounds I'd be shocked.

Carwin is going to fuck Mir up.

Hardy doesn't have a chance.

No other fights worth mentioning.

There are three options for Dos Santos:

Lesnar
Velasquez
Mir/Carwin winner


I think he will face the Mir/Carwin winner, while Lesnar will get Velasquez in July.

I'm pretty sure that the Mir/Carwin bout is for the interim heavyweight bout. Dana has said that the winner of that bout will unify the heavy title with Brock's in a showdown around July (hopefully).

The winner of Carwin/Mir gets Lesnar for the unified title, unless said winner gets injured, at which point Velasquez steps in. White has said that he doesn't want to match up Cain/Cigano for the first post-unification challenger, so both likely get stay-busy fights in the meantime, with Cain slightly ahead in terms of the first shot.

I think the HW division is starting to look much better, UFC wise. In fact I'd say with the list below, its as good as its ever been:

Lesnar
Mir
Dos Santos
Cain
Carwin
Gonzaga

Yeah, shouldn't be a problem for GSP. Mir Vs. Carwin looks like it could go either way, but it's definitely going to be entertaining, that's more of a sure thing than GSP beating Hardy (and that's almost as sure as you can get).

That was a really good fight card last night.

I had my doubts about Carwin, but they were all erased last night. My god, he just destroyed Mir. I can honestly say that it would not be an upset if Carwin beat Lesnar. He is really an animal.

GSP, my god, he is amazing. Hardy had little to no offense. Although, Hardy took a beating, and most guys would have tapped.

Ben Saunders got his ass whooped by Fitch. Fitch was like a monster in this fight.

Batman won again. He destroyed.

I thought Bocek should have got the win over Miller. Very good fight though.

Rodney Wallace is a big guy, but big guys can't fight long. Jared Hamman looked like he was going to lose early on, he took some big hits, and somehow got out of it and won.

Seriously! I couldn't believe how much bigger Brock is than Carwin, I still think Shane is the better fighter though and will probably win.

Dan Hardy is a tough dude, Im really surprised he got out of those submissions.

Give Jon Fitch his rematch with GSP, if he loses, then give Paulo Thiago a shot.

Im glad Nate Diaz won his fight, Id like to see him do well in the Welterweight division.

The Cigano/Cain fight really needs to happen, I think Dana whites idea is to hype them up a bit more and make their fan base larger by throwing them cans in the meantime.

I'm so ready for Wednesday night. And for some reason I hope fat ass Nelson gets pounded. Think the only reason to watch this season of TUF is obviously Tito and Chuck. Should be more shit talking than last seasons coaches.

I know it's going to be a while,but 114 is going to rock! Evans/Rashad and we get to see what Griffin will do next if anything.

No one really, unless they're going to sign new talent, or have them fight other psuedo-contenders like the Nelson/Struve winner, which runs counter to them not wanting to go with Cain/Cigano in the first place.

What's worse is that they want Cain to sit on the shelf until his title shot later this year, when he's still developing fight to fight and needs the cage time to further improve his game.

I'd like to see Dos Santos fight Mir. Have the winner face the Carwin/Lesner winner. I don't see Nelson going anywhere close to a title shot unless he's a last minute fill in (that would be a very long shot).

Yeah, I see Nelson getting destroyed by any of the elite talents. However, just like with watching the Ultimate Fighter, he may just shock us with an upset or two. I say that if he wins this next match, they should put Nelson up against Cro Cop. That should be his first real "Do I belong in the UFC?" test.

Cro Cop would be a good test for Nelson. Nogueira would be a good one aswell.

I agree... While Cro Cop isn't at the top of his game now, he's still a very dangerous opponent. Nelson would get junked by Cro Cop, IMO.

I think Velasquez has been far more impressive than Mir, and hasn't he already beaten Carwin? Throw Velasquez up against 95% of the heavyweight division and he's gonna come out on top.

I don't think Lesnar is half as talented as he is big, if he weren't so fucking massive, he would have only won against Heath Herring.

He hasn't been at the top of his game mentally ever since Gonzaga folded him up like a tent with that KO/head kick.

Nobody has beaten Carwin, as of now he is holding a strong impressive record at 12-0(none of his fights going past the first round). At this point it's hard to tell really how impressive Carwin is as an all around fighter. We haven't seen much other than his brutal KO power.

Great fights last night!

My heart really goes out to Kenny Florian. He is good enough to beat ANYBODY at 155 except for BJ Penn.

Roy Nelson crushed another opponent with that Liddell-esque overhand right. As I said before, he needs a tough test. I think it's too soon for big Nog, but another suggestion made by Yahoo! Sports was that Nelson should challenge fast-rising Todd Dunfee.

Nelson winning that easily was a little bit of a shock to me. I know all about his jujitsu and Shaolin Kung Fu. I'm just not convinced he can hang with the guys on the top of the weight class. I chuckled when he said he should be a title contender after that fight.

I'll have to rewatch it to find out.

Just so everybody knows, the UFC Fight this weekend airs live at 1:00 pm EST. It's in the United Arab Emirates, so there's a bit of a time difference. You can still watch it at 10:00 pm EST, but it won't be live and you could risk having the show spoiled.

What a terrible PPV. The Grove-Munoz fight was good, everything else was blah. Penn-Edgar had its moments, but should have been better.

Even Dana White was not happy with the event, mainly the main event, where he left in round 4 because of nothing happening.

Worst dual main events I've ever seen. The Penn/Edgar fight was probably one of the worst fights I've ever seen... until the Silva/Maia fight. GUH! Such a great under card, destroyed by the biggest letdown title fights in ages. Had Penn won the decision, I would boycott the UFC forever. Penn did NOTHING, but toss a jab every 25 seconds, and defend most takedown attempts. The Silva fight... don't get me started on that circus. Dude was being a fucking clown, to the point of disgracing the sport.

THIS is why I haven't paid for a PPV since UFC 10. Kinda wish I had my 1.2gb and 2hrs back.

You truly get what you paid for.
