  1. LCM says:

    Cung will have to spend his $70k to get that nose fixed.

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      That joint got fuuuuked up! Silva brought it to his ass n never really let him get into rhythm.

      • slacker says:

        Well, Cung did win the 1st round pretty well. But Silva solved him after that.

        • Justa Thought says:

          I never would have thought Cung had a chance in this fight. Wrong. Crazy Combos and a Great Round 1. Too bad he ran out of gas. I’d love to see that again with Cung ready to go a full 3. Dana should give all fighters a “Card of the Year” bonus. Great night for MMA!

        • ThaGreenBandit says:

          Yeah, he won that first round, but still never really seemed to get comfortable. Silva was a much more technical fighter than I’m used to him being. Great performance

    • Cristian says:

      hhahaha. Yes, he´ll spend a lot fixing that nose. Cung seem kindo of scared when he entered the octagon, and he wasn´t in good shape. I expected more of him. Nevertheless, Silva made a great fight, he waited his moment and punched the right strikes. Great fight. ¿will kung return to the UFC, or go back to srikeforce?

      • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

        I thought he seemed nervous. He is going to have to become a well rounded fighter if he is going to fight some of the power strikers in the mw division. Also better CARDIO! Fighters know his strengths and like Cro Cop they are going to make him predictable. =/

  2. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Best UFC Ever!

    • ThaGreenBandit says:

      I dont know about that, but the final three fights were great, and the final two were EPIC! It’s a shame that this card seemed to have been under promoted

  3. Nick says:

    Hendo/Shogun was amazing. Fight of the year for sure. Didn’t even see the MacDonald fight. Great night of fights for sure.

  4. Adrian Perea says:

    The Axe Murderer!!!!

  5. CD says:

    Best event this year!!

  6. Rusk says:

    Bonner gave a great bjj lesson

    • Ly-er_Ly-er says:

      Around the World!!! Bonner passed Kingsbury’s guard like it was nothing, took every dominate position imaginable!! LOL

  7. AAxAntonio says:

    im a little shocked that shogun and hendo was a unanimous decision, i thought it was a 47-47 draw, but it was still one of the best fights i have ever seen, good job Hendo, and Rua.

  8. adam kantor says:

    shogan and hendo was defenetly a draw and in pride rules shogun would be the winner because they only gave points in the last 10 minutes! awsome fight!

  9. Jujitsu Player says:

    Felt like this card didn’t get pushed enough and was in the shadow of recent events/fights but turned out to be one of the best UFCs ever. Faber looked awesome, the old Wand was back and Hendo and Shogun was a war. Hendo deserved the decision but Shogun was a warrior.

  10. T.DADDY says:

    Silva looked like his old self… shogun got madd heart i cant believe he didnt get ko’d.. Hendo is the man!!!

  11. Pacquiao vs Mayweather 2012 says:

    I only watched the PPV, missed the FB and Spike prelims. Very good card. The Bonnar-Kingsbury fight started out promising until Bonnar took it to the ground and laid on him to victory. Glad for Kampmann as he brought down Story with his usual technical boxing. Uriah looked awesome, looking forward to no. 3 against Cruz. Was rooting for Cung, but oh well. And,

    Hendo is the man! I don’t know if I would call it the best UFC fight ever, though. It got sloppy for awhile, but great fight nonetheless.
