Can't blame GSP for not finishing the fight, Hardy showed a lot of heart and if it wasn't for his rubber arm, GSP would have won in the first.



Carwin's fists are cinder blocks. Those were some blows he was hitting Mir with. I'm glad it won't ne Lesnar/Mir....again. But both men have nightmares over Cain Velasquez.

Yeah both guys showed me something that fight. My arm is still sore from watching those bars GSP put Hardy in. I normally condemn GSP for being too safe, but he tried to finish Hardy 2-3 times. Hardy just wasn't having it .

Looks like a very good cast for the newest TUF, they look like much better fighters than the previous couple of seasons.

I used to be a fan of Anderson Silva, but I have grown tired of him. He is too good to be goofing around like that. Hopefully he has a real challenge next time around.

Great fight for Frankie Edgar. Surprising win, but well deserved. He outworked Penn and was the clear winner IMO. It will be interesting to see what is next for both guys.

The Renzo fight was boring as hell, which is a shame. On the other hand, the Munoz bout was awesome. Fight of the Night for me.

Silva is still awesome but he really needs to do something. I was letdown in that performance. I wonder if he had an injury or something he didn't want to aggravate.

Ugh, Anderson Silva sucks. I gained some respect for Maia gutting it out in the later rounds and trying to initiate some kind of offense against a clearly superior (albeit douchey) opponent.

I just read sherdog, and they were whining about how the judges screwed up the Penn/Edgar fight. Apparently, they didn't see the same fight I did, because Frankie was clearly the one that dictated the action. Although the 50-45 score was a little ridiculous, Edgar was the better fighter.

I keep hearing Silva say in interviews that Maia disrespected him and that's why he wanted to punish Maia, but anytime anyone askes him to clarify, he doesn't give a straight answer. Anyone know anything more about that? Maia has always been a classy guy, so I can't really see him doing what Silva's accusing him of.

I didn't watch the fight live, but I just watched it online, Silva is a complete douchebag. I've always thought he was really full of himself but that was just lame. He's a fantastic at fighting but sucks at being humble. God I can't wait till someone knocks him out...sooner or later it will happen.

I agree with Dana White 100%, Silva fought like a jackass. :-t

Meh. It's a two-sided coin. Of course White is going to complain, he's pushing a product....and in that case Silva will pay for it by being an undercard fighter until he gets his "act" together. That being said, fans who complain about stuff like this are kinda baby-ish IMO. The guy is just flat out bored and his title defenses have been against people who don't stand a chance against him. Look at the scorecards. If you're Silva, why are you going to risk getting hurt or by some act of God one of your opponents lands a sucker punch/kick when you can outquick the opponent and win on points without breaking a sweat. All this "disrespect" garbage is stupid and it's just UFC fanboy complaining because the fight itself wasn't exciting.

I watched this fight and I can see how some are a bit upset if they dropped the 50, but to say this is some kind of pattern is ridiculous. The Leites fight was a complete joke....he was in the fetal position half the fight and Silva kept trying to engage, only to watch Lei-down on the mat-tes do what he did the entire fight.

Not sure if this is directed toward my post or not, but a few quick things...

Silva kept harping on the fact that Maia disrespected him. This has nothing to do with anything fanboyish that I'm coming up with. It's what he said. I was just trying to figure out if anything actually happened, or if it was Silva's way of absolving himself of the negativity that people are directing his way.

Secondly, I disagree with your assessment that Silva is doing what he's doing to avoid a lucky knockout. If that was his intention, he wouldn't have run around with his hands by his sides sticking his chin out at the beginnings of the Forrest and Maia fights. If he wants to be cocky, that's his perogative. The problem with it was the fight was largely unentertaining due to the fact that everyone knew he could finish the fight, but never did. Rather than seeing the best fighter in the world display his craft (which is why people buy these things), we were treated to a half hour of idiocy.
