Fox sucks big time..the only thing they are good for is NFL football." If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

Definitely blew my load early on that fight....though Junior won so I can't be too upset. Wish I could watch Pacquiao-Marquez now but if you think I'm paying for pay-per-view...
YOU GOT ANOTHER THING COMIN'!!

It was kind of funny how Dana was making no effort to hide how pissed off he was, but this was really a failure of planning. Your only fight airing on your major network debut includes a guy who is a knockout artist; the potential was always there for this fight to be over in less time than it took for Buffer to do his introduction spiel.
So brand new viewers get to see as their first impression of the UFC--and in the most prestigious weight class as far as the layman is concerned--a fight for the world championship that lasts all of a minute and four seconds. Meanwhile, on facebook, we're treated to Guida v. Henderson, Caceres v. Escovedo, and others--pretty much any one of which would have been a better introduction of MMA to new fans.
On the bright side, UFC on Fox will likely not suck this much in the future. For non-title events, they'll probably end up airing the main event and the co-main event ( I would prefer 3 fights in an hour time slot, but that probably doesn't leave enough time for commercials and commentary.) If nothing else, this will give us a lot more fights to watch on Facebook. Pity for Dana it didn't turn out to be a 3+ round war, though.

I'm trying to stream the Boxing match now..but not having much luck." If one wants to have a friend one must also want to wage war for him: and to wage war one must be capable of being an enemy." - Fr. Nietzsche 'On The Friend' Thus Spake Zarathustra

so everyone has decided that fight sucked?
maybe dana needs to write scripts and choreography for the fighters.

so they're scripted and they still suck. maybe everyone will now go back to kung fu movies and pro wrestling.

I missed the entire fight because I sneezed.
Thank you for the free FB card, Dana! Clay Guida is the man!!!
Either Guida vs Bendo or Aldo vs Hominick for Fight of the Year!
