Stayed up all night (quite literally) to watch every single fight.
I have zero regrets.
The most dynamic armbar I've seen in a long time - by Ivan Menjivar.
The WWI reenactment - by GSP and Condit.
The Left Fist of Significant Doom - by Johnny Hendricks.
Cyrille Diabaté getting his grapple on.
Makdessi going super technical on the counterstriking.
Riddle just being an all-round great performer.
All-in-all: a great night of fights. I wonder what excuse they'll push for not having GSP v Silva...

Silva is a very tactical fighter, but still very entertaining to watch.

The main and co-main were the only fights that satisfied my fight fix. Cyrille and Anjos did great don't get me wrong and Sakara's DQ was hilarious. I hope this fight changes minds about Conduit and GSP's fighting. Conduit wasn't running anywhere and GSP was the exact opposite of boring great fight to see.

Condit is a badass.
anyone else think he was throwing really telegraphed kicks at the beginning on purpose? I was thinking 'is he even TRYING to land those?' and then *wham*. he set it up beautifully.
I wanna see GSP against an awesome striker with decent wrestling, enough to make the TDs less frequent and really put the pressure on him standing.

Good crosstraining adds to one's background.
Tri-Star trainers took Shoto-type Makdessar and, in addition to the standard training necessary for a pro MMA-ruleset fighter, made him a fighter who could give clinics on head-movement worthy of a counterpunching-specialist boxer, as well as maintaining the timing, angles and distancing that are stressed in Shotokan. The result was that Makdessar combined excellent head-movement with the more common variety of Shotokan "elusiveness" (whole-body elusiveness via footwork) for the win.
I lost count of the number of times he snapped Stout's head with those jabs...
