    Also, the amount of leghumping is not as RAAAAAAAAAAAAAH they let Jake Shields fight???
    Ugh, don't get me started. Fuckin' Jake Shields. I hate that I picked him. I just don't think Akiyama will be able to deal with his wrestling. I raise my glass in the hopes that Yoshi fucking smashes his brains in.

    As for the ruleset, I have mixed feelings. It certainly made for more teh awesome, but soccer kicks to the head and knees to the top of your skull when you're down tend to take your favorite fighters out of their careers sooner than anyone likes.

    Hell of a card, big jobs for Edgar, Hunt and Lauzio but I think they can pull it off.

    I'm 20 years outside the target demographic of that clip, and I thought it was brilliant.

    Somebody give that guy a job in advertising stat!

    Edit: On second thought, maybe that means it sucks.

    Hehe, basically, I agree with everything you just wrote.

    Granted, especially the first few Pride events are pretty brutal, but rather than soccer kicks and the knees on down opponents, I'd so welcome a card system for the UFC; also I think the jedging system there was - as a principle - more effective. Say, fights like Nate Diaz vs Cerrone would not have gone the way they did in Pride.

    Excellent looking card. Win, lose or draw, almost everybody on that card always brings it to the fight.

    Very pleased to see Marku Hunto get such high billing and I feel that he should be able to have a very competitive standup nuclear war against the giant froggie.

    Anyway, I don't really know enough about either Edgar or Henderson to pick one over the other, but apart from that I'll go for Rampage by TKO, Shields by decision via wrestling and Pettis by TKO.

    Agreed, mostly.

    A card system would do wonders for fights like Mir v. Crocop and any other plodders who are happy to sit back and wait for the perfect shot for 3 rounds. When you get two of those fighting each other, someone should be losing money and it shouldn't be the PPV buyers.

    As for the scoring, if you add the variable "Intent To Do Damage" to the judging criteria, I think it solves a lot of issues. For one, it means that if you lay on top of someone's guard and pat them in the face with nancy-punches while the man on bottom reigns elbows, trying to cut you, the card doesn't suddenly favor you for being on top or call it equal. It also solves the problem that I had with the Condit fight, somewhat, though he still would have probably won - Nick just didn't touch him much.

    As for Nate vs. Donald, I thought that was a great fight and I'm not sure your complaint.
