Could be an awesome card. Diaz Penn is such a great match up, it's hard trying to explain that to GSP fans tho ;/

I've got
BJ
Meathead
Fatty
genetically modified steel skin kid
the latest Japanese Wonder
and wannabe Cowboy guy.

I just watched 103 because i missed it somehow, or maybe i was baked off my cake, but man Cro-cop in that was so depressing. Really sad, he didn't look into it at any point. His team just looked so disorganised, there was no firewhatsoever, they didn't even have signage for him upon entering the cage. Only JDS's hilarious interview afterwards prevented me from killing myself.

Rogan: How do you feel right now?
JDS not really understanding it: UFC IS THE BAWS!!!

Was so excited for Penn vs Diaz, and knew Diaz had everything needed to put a beating down on BJ. They're 2 of my favourite fighters but im glad Nick Diaz put on that performance. Such a good fight.

surprised how many picked Diaz over BJ. I thought Diaz would tear up BJ in rounds 2 and 3 no troubles.

I felt Mitrione got a bit robbed. I reckon he won the first 2 rounds with his aggression, always pressing forward and got smashed in the 3rd. A bit like rampage winning against lyoto for edging out the first 2 and then getting beaten up in the 3rd but still taking the fight.

four out of six ain't bad.

i've got 20 bucks on miller versus bisbing against a mate, not that i back him really but couldn't resist a bet. Said friend proposed the bet straight after going on about how you have to have a top notch wrestling game if you want to go anywhere in the UFC. Hopefully i can prove him right.

Have you seen the Primetime episode for JDS vs Velasquez? Awesome watch.

I'd love for Junior to win, just having a hard time writing Cain off. JDS has the better hands, but we've not seen much of his BJJ because he either just knocks dudes out or gets up as soon as he's taken down. Velasquez with his wrestling and quite well rounded kickboxing is no walkover, that's for sure.

Anyone else seen UFC 138.

Was one of the better UFC's I'd seen in a while.

I really dislike Bisping. I'm hoping Mayhem shuts him up like Hendo did.

^THIS.

I don't know who I want to win this Sunday, after watching the UFC Primetime I can't like either of them more than the other, and they seem sooooo evenly matched... although I do have a soft spot for JDS after last season of TUF Gonna be an epic day!

Pretty happy about Sky choosing to air it live!

Nah haven't caught the primetime unfortunately.

Cain = best cardio in the division, good hands and angles on the inside, and very good wrestling.
JDS = great boxing on the outside, and a good sprawl. I think the biggest insight to this match is their current positions. Cain hasn't fought in a year. JDS is on a hot streak and has fought really classy opponents to get to where he is over the last five fights.

Guida v Bendo will be awesome, i just can't see that being a bad fight. The way he dominated Jim Miller was outstanding, so fucking athletic it was crazy, because you know Jim Miller is an machine so Bendo's cardio is next level. Of course Guida is the cardio bench mark so they should go full noise until it's over.

After seeing Mayhem blat into training on an orange BMX and then extol the virtues of it's sweet kickstand with a 'LUCKKKYY!!!" i'm now his biggest fan lol.

Awesome three bout broadcast, bendo v guida was a great fight and really the best thing for me, shame guida couldn't do it but there's a good lw challenger coming thru.

so much for second round arm triangle lol. Like cain said those behind the ear shots really rattle you and then it's five big ones to the face while your eyes straighten out.

Watched most of the undercard on facebook.. pretty good card.

Stoked that Bendon will be challenging for the title. That'll be an awesome fight!

Won $20 from a mate on JDS. Called first round KO and everything.

nice shot JDS.
I thought Cain was gunna get it to the ground and finish it there. Be good to see if Brock can fight for the title against JDS since they were matched up on TUF

"Peralta defeated Semerzier via TKO (punches) at 1:54 of round 3"
Bit shit for Semerzier, really got TKO'd from the headclash a few seconds before the punches.

How good was yesterdays main card? They are both fucking hard cunts man. Both took so much punishment, Hendo looked like he could barely see/walk and was still pushing forward throwing those big rights at nothing.

Best fight I've seen in a long time.

Cung Le stoppage was justified I reckon. You could say it was early, but it was just delaying the inevitable. Stoked to see Wand bounce back.

Main event was All Out War - I'll have to rewatch to see if I agree with round 2 being 10-8 Hendo, but im not unhappy with the result. That uppercut Shogun landed in the 4th knocked Hendo right into the thriller video! Priviledged to watch that fight!
