    For those who missed the event.

    Figueiredo took a hard fought decision but sadly neither one of those guys look like a challenge for Mighty Mouse in the future. Golm beat his way to a submission gotta love heavy weights. Dos Santos dominated his way to a victory. Gordon owned the whole fight and got the decision as he should've. Junior beat his way to a sub nicely done. Luque fought his was to a rolling sub always love it when Brazilians remind me of how good they can be. Will watch the main event tomorrow not bad so far.
    Fu Hung Hsieh remains Fu Hung Hsieh and Kung-tzu Yu remains Kung-tzu Yu.

    He really doesn't. In his defense, he's been fighting some seriously tough customers in his last few fights, but he's noticeably slower than he used to be.

    He'll probably be kept around for some legend fights, but his time as a serious competitor is over. Hope he knows when to call it quits before brane goes bai bai.

    He lost a lot of his speed advantage when he moved down to 185, and he lost more of it by getting old. He's a fucking legend, but I think it's time for him to pack it in and focus on teaching. He has a lot to offer Karate when it comes to spreading the art as an effective system with alive training methods.

    He wasn't slower than in his prime. The UFC has evolved and he couldn't keep up

    Would like to think Machida is just having really bad luck, but it's hard to ignore father time.

    Apparently minutes before his walk out he was talking **** to Convington, who didn't take well to that "Uh Vai Morrer " carry on over there.

    As well as the fact that he's been busted once for a banned substance and has looked a lot less impressive since then, meaning we could be looking at a somewhat Belfortean situation here.
