Rest of the card rocked though. I don't understand how the crowd was booing during Nog/Herring. I thought it was awesome. Herring looked the Herring of old. Sherk was just dominant again. And what can you say about Silva. Can't wait for that rematch with Franklin. Now Tanner is returning and maybe Lindland soon. Awesome.
Pisses me off that they announce the submission of the night when it was on a non-aired fight.
Yeah, Tito/Rashad was a disappointment, but I couldn't decide who I wanted to win, so a draw sat just fine with me. I'm not exactly excited about the possibility of a rematch, though.
I know Sherk man-handled Hermes for 5 rounds, but I just don't enjoy watching him fight. There's no way he's going to be a headliner unless he starts putting people away. What's funny is that if it was a different ref, they probably would have been stood up numerous times. Florian impressed again.
I thought the Noguierra fight was just ok. I thought Herring looked like crap. Yeah, he caught Nog with a lucky kick, but if you see the replay, you'll see it was a body kick and Nog just ducked into it. If it wasn't for that one lucky kick, Noguierra would have finished it by the 2nd round at the latest. How much notice did Herring have? He didn't look in shape at all.
I'm excited about a Franklin/Silva rematch also. I know Silva kicked his ass, but Franklin was not himself that first fight. He was extremely tentative and was coming off an injury. This time around, it will be different... and you can be darn sure he'll be adequately prepared to defend against the muay thai clinch this time. I like Silva too, so it's not like I'm a Franklin fanboy.
Who's Shogun going to fight? I'm thinking Shogun/Liddel and the winner gets a shot at Rampage. Rampage will probably have to fight before that, so who get's the next light heavyweight title shot?
Now that UFC bought Pride, do you think they're going to have an open-weight or a middle/light-heavyweight grand prix? Will Vegas even license open-weight?
