    I would like to see sherk finish a fight tho. It's kind of sad these wrestlers who are so dominant but afraid to get tagged on the chin can't seem to do anything else but assert "yes, you are stuck here and no I cannot finish you"
    What he said. I'm out..

    i had picked rashad, but i must say, if i was to judge it, tito gets the nod on that fight...omega said his ring generalship would show, and it did. Tito was stronger, and bigger for the most part, even tho he looked like he gassed a bit near the end

    sherk/franca...wow. I was worried all along about sherks double legs, cuz i figured franca would be trying to capitalize on the exposed neck for a gullitine. I was sure sherk could fend it off in the early goin, but man, almost every round there was a close call. It went like how i expected tho

    bocek losing is a bummer, i really thought he could pull it off....guess he needs to work on his hands

    wrestlers that are afraid to get tagged!? Perhaps, but Sherk isn't one of them. I mean christ he took, what 2-3 full fledged knees to the face while moving in flush on the button!? One of which he just ate it, and kept pushing through for the takedown! Fuckin beast if I ever saw one.

    Ditto. He came straight in over and over, really dominated that fight and was constantly on the ball. He was always working to improve his position and he wasn't even out of breath at the conclusion. No, it wasn't a high kick knock out or anything flashy, but I don't see how his performance can be called lackluster.

    especially since franca was calling sherks guard into question
    well, i think sherk gave franca a lil lesson on guard passing...with ease!

    I give it up for Franca on that one too going all 5 rounds with someone like Sherk....at the end where kept getting back to his feet. I was in awe. I mean I'm dead after 10-15 minutes of straight rolling, let alone 25 minutes of MMA action.

    That passing pissed me off. He used the same one over and over. First pass you ever learn in Jits. Granted it's very high percentage, and at that level it can be ridiculously smooth like Sherk showed, I was just expecting a BJJ BB to catch on and find a way to thwart it a bit better.

    i know! franca's bjj should be solid, but it goes to show how frickin strong sherk is
    his body awareness is just great. you can see sherk sense when to pass the guard and how position himself so well to do so

    yea, it was a guard pass 101 type move, but it worked...

    franca really used up a lot of energy in the first gullitine attempt...that was his downfall.

    Nog ate a solid shin and was out. I'm quite glad they let it go.

    Sherk - Franca went the way everyone expected. Sherk had clinical control, I would have liked to see him try to it up to try to finish the fight though.

    Please no Rashad - Tito 2.

    Go Silva, got the TKO earlier than I thought. A let down after such anticipation at a 'Stacked' card.

    I really hope there isnt a Tito-Rashad 2 that would be awful. Sorta a waste of Titos last contract fight, should fed him to Wanderlei lol.



    Did anyone notice Anderson but his mouth guard into his pants after the fight????

    Anderson what badass name.
