Yeah, I'm pretty bad at this, eh?

In all seriousness, had Faber not broken his right hand and probably seriously injured his left hand as well in the 2nd Round, he would have stood a much greater chance (I venture to say he would have won, but the way Brown fought I don't want to take anything away from him). I think Faber fought exceedingly well given the circumstances that developed as the fight went on.

Just giving you a hard time man. Picking the winner in UFC fights is tough to do...all it takes is one punch, or one freak injury in Faber's case, to swing a fight. You can't count anyone out, even a relative nobody can walk into the octagon and catch a top fighter slipping or catch a lucky break. It's part of why I love the UFC so much. ;-D

Good fight between Wand and Franklin. I thought Silva won it, but it was very close. Same for the Uno-Fisher fight. Uno definitely got robbed in that one, but what a boring fight!

Cro Cop looked good and it was unfortunate that the ref didn't give Al-turk time to recover from the eye poke. Cro Cop would probably still KO him even if Al-turk had three days to recover.

Kongo's ground game is non-existent and he was dominated by Velazquez on the ground. Kongo did rock Velazquez a couple of times and all in all I thought it was a good fight, but if I were Velazquez, I'd be worried about fighting someone who can wrestle with him.

I'm fairly new to UFC, having only seen the past 4 plus a few 07 videos, but I'm really starting to get into it. Since I've seen a lot of 07 Pride, along with Anderson Silva destroying Franklin, I thought Wandy had the fight in the bag. I was very impressed with Franklin.

I also thought Velazquez' biggest asset in the fight was his chin. He got rocked a few times and kept going. Once it went to the ground, it was pretty pathetic. I don't think you could get a decent feel for how good his ground game was, Congo was so bad. I'd like to see a better matchup for him.
