Holy ****, that was great. Farmboy apparently has actually been in a few real fights in his day.. that was straight schoolyard brawling style. Give him a year and he'd be a force in MMA.

Jesus, does Yoshida understand how to keep his hands up?

Yoshida is so fucking horrible words dont describe him. The guy is an olympic Judo champion and he's now fighting at the PINNACLE of MMA and still he's improved about ZERO.
Has NOBODY taken the time to show this guy how to fight? And what was the weight difference here, does anyone know?"All warfare is based on deception." -Sun Tzu, ca. 400BC
Reverse punch Kiaii!!!

Damn you see that GUT hanging on his waist? Can you even IMAGINE how difficult it would be to take Gardner down? His base must be stronger than the world trade center."All warfare is based on deception." -Sun Tzu, ca. 400BC
Reverse punch Kiaii!!!

I really don't think that was the reason for his face getting pounded that much Shum. I think it had something to do with being bulldozed by a big ass wrestler and getting tired. He knows how to keep his hands up it's just that it was pointless by that time in the match.... ouch.

Impressed the **** out of me:
Gomi deciding to play Pulver’s game and kicking his ass anyway
The Hendo/Kondo decision
Giant Silva’s continued presence
Other noteworthy highlights:
Gardner’s performance – particularly when you juxtapose it with the fact that people have probably been underestimating him his entire life
Hunt’s huge effing punches, not to mention his flying ass technique
Fedor’s sustained [and sleepy-eyed] dominance

This was the first MMA thing I've seen beyond various clips and highlights, but I liked it a lot.
The fight with Giant Silva freaked me out. First he moved like a drunken madman (haymaker...) and then he screamed and grunted when he was getting pounded.
EDIT: Oh, on a few fights, I heard the announcers say "4-point shots (or something like that) are allowed." What does that mean?
