    Yeah they also showed it last night on the 10 pm sportscenter.


    Still can't believe that happened though. Serra was a huge underdog and when stuff like this happens I sometimes wonder if money has a roll in the fights. I sure hope not.

    Yea, heard it was a weak pride card but was surprised to see that result. Sojojodou is the Brazillian Top Team killer.

    That guy is a friggin BEAST! Beats little Nog and Arona? I would love to see him fight Chuck or Shogun.

    But the biggest news of the PRIDE show was the return of KAZUSHI SAKURABA!!!! He was all emotional because it was the end of an era for PRIDE, and he says he will fight in the PRIDE ring again.

    Personally, even though he is far and away my favorite fighter of all time, he needs to hang them up. He is too broken down to continue fighting and hasn't been the same since Wandy destroyed him. I don't want him to turn into Ken Shamrock. But I think the most fitting thing would be to somehow schedule some sort of exhibition with Rickson. But Rickson won't do it in order to preserve his "aura."

I showed up at the start of the Sanchez fight and was ready to leave after it ended. They didn't do anything. The highlight was a single jab. The only time either guy went after each other was at the end of the round when they knew the bell would save them. Weak.

    The title fight was a little better but not much. They basically did nothing for a while and then one guy got knocked out. At least it didn't end in a submission hold after 2 minutes (which is pretty much how every previous fight I've seen has ended).

    It's a shame you missed the fight right before Sanchez and Koscheck then. Will probably go down as one of the best fights this year and it was a couple of "nobodies". From time to time you get fights like that one last night. To compare it to a boxing fight. . .I'd say it's like any Chris Byrd fight. Technically strong, but leaves a lot to be desired. On other occasions though, you'll get a war where two guys go at it for several rounds. . .like the fight before. Give it some more time. The next card should be good.

    Kazushi is also one of my favorite fighters along with Randy! I would've loved to have seen him live at a PRIDE event but that probably will never happen. He needs to just retire. He is one of the all time MMA greats and doesn't have any more to prove. An exhibition would be great but him getting into the ring again just makes me nervous.

    I just found it funny that two guys who hate each other like Koscheck and Sanchez acted like total pussies

    now that Zuffa has bought Pride, it's time to bring a little from each into the other.

    Time for the Yellow Card in the UFC or elimination of the 10 point must.

    I just finished watching the card. I am totally speechless. I can't believe GSP lost. Never in a million years did I expect that. Congrats to Serra, but he knows he got a little lucky. GSP almost ducked that first shot, just grazed him enough in the back of the head to stun him, but give credit to Serra, his follow up shots were all on the money after that. He didn't back off and give GSP ANY time to recover.

    Other than that, the Huerta / Garcia fight was amazing. Both guys just giving it their all. Garcia was getting rocked time and time again, but gotta hand it to the kid, he never gave up and just kept smiling the whole time. Huerta seems to have a great chin too. Several times Garcia landed great shots right on the chin, and Garcia barely moved. Granted, quite a few of these were later in the match when Garcia was tired, but they were good shots nonetheless, and Huerta just shrugged every one off.

    The Sanchez / Koscheck fight was horrible by both. They were both p***ies. The hatred was so immense that neither wanted to try ANYTHING for fear of losing. Koscheck was way too happy over such a s***ty win. Yes, he handed Sanchez his first loss, but he only did so by being less crappy than Diego. I think the end of the 1st where Kos shot and Diego quickly transitioned to his back and took it kinda freaked Kos out a bit.

    Belcher / Grove: well, it was exactly as expected, with Kendall coming out on top. Belcher just couldn't really get anything started because of Kendall's reach advantage. I'm actually not that big on Grove, but the kid does have talent. I really like the way he uses those straight leg kicks. I just wish he'd stop trying to be Tito Jr. by stealing his "grave-digger" celebration and carrying the 2 flags to the ring with him. Just get your own schtick.

    Swick / Okami: was it just me, or did Swick look nervous the whole time? Didn't seem willing to push the pace at all or willing to take a jab or 2 to land some combos. The only real time Swick looked like himself was at the end of the 2nd when he rocked Okami. Too bad he ran out of time. Was he really that worried about Okami's strength?

    So, back to the welterweights. Where does the UFC go from here? Personally, I think Sanchez & Koscheck both fought their way OUT of a title shot with their performances. I think both are going to have to come back with a couple of dominant, exciting fights to get a shot, because after that performance, I don't think many fans would be too excited to see either in a title fight if they can't deliver a good performance. That was like watching a Tim Sylvia fight.

    I think the next fight should be Serra / Hughes, with GSP getting the winner (most likely Hughes) in Montreal. In the meantime, not sure who you give to GSP as a tune-up. Any thoughts?
