yeah i just watched it,
was pritty good.
I wanted Tank to beat the smerk of of franks face.
I loved it when he said ("i am walking out, We can meet at a bar")
The fight between penn and uno i think should have gone to penn but it was a good fight non the less.
It would be intresting to see ken fight tank.
Befor tank would never fight ken,but now i think he would.

I think Yves Edwards had the best fight of the night. Perfect example of a striking-oriented MMA guy.

I would have to say that as far as pure action goes, the Baroni Lindland fight was the best on the card. And I was kinda glad to see Lindland win, since Baroni kinda struck me as that kid who would lose at something, but have a million reasons why it wasn't really his fault. And I have always hated that kid.
I was kinda bummed to see Tank go out in 46 seconds. I realize that yes, Mir is good, and No, Tank might not be, but simply for emotional and sentimental reasons, I really wanted to see him come out on top.
All in all though, it was a good few hours.
Oh yeah, and a mental note, I never ever want to take a shot to the jaw from Tim Silvia, much less 3 of them.

Tank fights are often short, because he is so aggressive.
For all his limits in skill, Tank is very genuine, and a true fighter, who will do it for nothing--ask the fan
who bad mouthed him in Puerto Rico.
Mir was the worst comeback opponent for him, due to a lack of skill in submissions. Give him a striker,
and you have an entertaining fight.
The monumental fight was Ricco/Sylvia. Ricco looked absolutely incompetant.
I still think Sylvis is severly skill-handicapped, but Ricco was just awful. I have no explanation for it...
