    I don't have Versus so I watched the Bellator HW tourney instead...you guys didn't miss much, but I think Blagoi Ivanov will end up winning the whole thing.

    Usually it's more like the Edwards Oliveira fight, where he just watches a guy get beat to death. There's a reason everyone boos as soon as it's anounced he's the ref.

    the cruz fight was one of the best title fights i've seen in YEARS. fast and mean and fucking gorgeous throws all over the place. if you haven't seen it yet go watch it RIGHT NOW.

    So, of course, there are like a dozen threads on Sherdog about how Dominick Cruz is a lame champion who stalled his way to victory.

    I might be in the minority that loved the Cruz / Johnson fight, I thought it was awesome!

    Also I don't really blame Mario for that stoppage. When that guy got up he looked shocking, could barely stand and was laying against the cage wall, that kick would've made a LOT of refs 'stop happy'.

    yeah i dont think that was prem. he was lucky, cos he was in the process of a brutal beatdown. he was wobbled before that kick landed, and he glassed when it hit. if the ref handt stopped it, he would have gotten his face absolutely smashed in when he got followed to the ground half dazed and his hands propping his big afro head up with no defense.

    could you articulate what you found boring about it? was it just the use of takedowns?
