I was suprised to see on Fightmetric that Tim Schla-Boetsch actually outfought Okami in the first round - I'd have to rewatch the fight, but I don't seem to remember it being that way.
Can't wait to see who Hunt takes on next - he takes on anyone other than Mir or Nog, I reckon he'll have an excellent chance.

Really didn't think Benson won that fight. Frankie landed more strikes, and scored some good takedowns.
Also what kind of a shitty turn around for Okami. Looking so improved, then having that happen.

Overall, a good night of fights. Bummer for Joe Lauzon, and bummer for Frankie Edgar... I was happy to see Tim Boetsch come through, though. That was a performance appropriate for his nickname!There are no wrong threats, only wrong answers. (Strategy game truism)

felt so bad for Frankie. he is my new hero. brought it every step of the way against a clearly larger opponent, even after getting blasted hard.

Kongo's grappling skills? Kongo's GRAPPLING skills? We are talking about the guy who got outwrestled by....Heath Herring. Let that percolate in your cerebral cortex for a second.
As for trading with Mark Hunt, Melvin Manhoef managed to put him down with punches, for Kongo to think he could do the same isn't the height of insanity some of you are making it out to be.
And just for the record:
Jesus > Jersey Shore.

Secondly, Frankie hates Jersey Shore, has expressly said so on record, and to praise jesus after kicking someone's ass is... well I can't decide whether it's more retarded than ironic or the other way around.
I swear to ****, if one more athlete gets the adjective "humble" ascribed to them because they think god intervenes on their personal fucking sporting endeavors I'm gonna kick a dictionary through the face of the next ESPN anchor I see.Originally Posted by Sarcastro

I think the turning point of this card for me was the Shields snoozer. Props to everybody who fights, but he is not my favorite either!
Bummed for J-Lau. It happens, although a little too quick this time dammit.
All those takedowns didnt get it for the champ?? I thought the striking was close but the damage was one-sided, I am torn but cant argue too much. Bendo did some damage, and the way the bell rang in the fifth didnt help Frankie either.
