Good card and better fights. Benson henderson dominated nate diaz. bj is punch drunk and shogun is washed up.

Hendrson diaz fight was pretty good. Diaz wanted to stand and bang, everytime he did he got those stupid leg kicks. They win the fight and break your opponent down, just boring to watch.
Shogun looked TIRED!
Missed the rest of the card, my DVR hates me.

These fights were all pretty darn good, IMO. BJ Penn had no business getting in the ring again at 170, and certainly not against a top contender in that division. That Rory McDonald is no slouch. If BJ wants to continue fighting he needs to drop down to 155, but I don't think he has the discipline to make the cut. Great natural talent with that guy, but never wanted to put in the hard work that a consistent champion needs to do.

Shogun is a tough dude, but that Swede is no slouch. With his size and aggressiveness, he may give Bones Jones a different look. Not sure he's ready for that yet, but he's an exciting fighter.

I agree on bj. He needed to go to a real mma gym, not his own gym for his camps. yves edwards ko of jeremy stephens was a thing of beauty and, an upset. War the under dog! I think the Ben Nate fight was amazing, Ben dismantled himin all phases of the game. The most suprising to me was Bens ground game. Dude is an animal. I wasnt impressed with Gustafsson, he is aggressive but, way to slow to and sloppy to challenge Jones. UFC needs to do more of these fox cards.

I couldnt understand why people had Yves as an underdog that was awesome.

I was happy to see Diaz get his ass handed to him, dude is too cocky. BJ Penn needs to hang it up, sad to see him get beat the way he has.

Nobody has mentioned what I believe were the three most exciting prospects on the card. Kruickshank (sp?) looked phenomenal, although his opponent helped him with that. Siver at 145 is an immediate contender, potentially a near-future champ. And Abel Trujillo from the Blackzillions camp in Florida, holy shit! That guy was ferocious, athletic, and exciting as hell to watch. I'll say it here right now, he will be the champ one day.
