just bumping this since there is a free heavyweight championship fight coming up tomorrow night
Nothing like 30 minutes of commercials and hype for one punch. Dana White has to be aggravated that this was his FOX debut showcase.
they should have showed the Henderson/Guida fight. That was an exciting fight that would have made fans out of casual observers.
Although Guida seems to be a little more conservative lately than in a couple of years ago, his fight against Henderson was almost guaranteed to be a good show. The Guida-Sanchez fight two years ago was one of the most exciting fight I can remember.
The UFC is still going to be on FOX next year, so I don't think it will make much of a difference that there was only 60 secs of fighting. I think they gambled a little bit because JDS is a knockout artist and the knockout itself wasn't all that impressive. If this were a Dan Henderson-Bisping type of KO, I think there would have been a few more positive reviews from the show.
If anyone watches the post-fight conference, you can clearly see Dana White upset. He did toned it down latter in the conference, but he didn't help matters.
