My thoughts on that night:
1) Pretty much all the "main fights" were crap, while the undercard was about ten times more exciting.
2) Joe Goldberg, Rogan and Randy Couture are the worst commentating team in the history of any sport. Rogan was like a broken record with the "this is the man who redefined MA" comment, Goldberg annoying as **** as always and Randy was talking out of his ass the whole night.
3)What the **** was up with Royce´s record being "11-0" and him being "undefeated". Have these idiots not seen his fights against Sakuraba and Yoshida. And that recent fight where he got his ass handed to him by a Japanese guy who was half his size. What a fucking lie. His record is actually 11-2-1.

In the Octagon Royce was undefeated. They did this on purpose.

Plus Gracie didn't "redefine" anything. Intelligent people realized long, long ago that grappling skills were important.
One doesn't need a hype-of-wrestling-pay-per-view event to let us know.

Though doesnt change the fact that gracie did not make a fool of himself here really.
THe fact he didnt tap is badass alone.

I guess I can see that but hughes himself in a post interview said he felt he was a step ahead, hinting that he wasn't even really trying. He was suprised by the strength difference he said, "wherever I wanted his hand is where I put it". Gracies got heart but I was sad to see a legend turn into an aged fighter in a matter of minutes, although i'm not sure if it was age (randy) or him being out of practice, very disapointing.

it wasn't age or practice, it was the level of skill difference
