Quinton Jackson Vs. Dan Henderson --> Jackson rd3 TKO
Matt Hamill Vs. Michael Bisping --> Bisping rd2
Mirko Filipovic Vs. Cheick Kongo --> Cro Cop
Houston Alexander Vs. Alessio Sakara --> Alexander - I think a smart fighter could neutralize Alexander's Spaz Fu, but I don't think Sakara is that guy.
Tomasz Drwal Vs. Thiago Silva --> Silva (guess) both these guys seem to stop fights in the first round.
Marcus Davis Vs. Paul Taylor --> Davis
Gleison Tibau Vs. Terry Etim --> Etim - submission Rd2
Anthony Torres Vs. Jess Liaudin --> Torres (guess)
Naoyuki Kotani Vs. Dennis Siver --> Siver (guess)
I kinda sucked on this one :(
Especially if you count that Bisping lost. Hammil's skills are there, but he didn't always fight the smartest fight. I think he was dominating enough that he could have finished in the second round. As they discussed in the commentary, Bisping could do better at 185. But probably nowhere near enough to beat Franklin, Silva or some of the other top-tier fighters.
Kongo was way better than I've seen before. I like how he neutralized Crocop's kicks and even when they were in range Kongo out-kicked him. If his ground fighting improves, he'll be a title threat, but I won't pick against Couture again.
Marcus Davis! good fight!
Houston Alexander! I think if someone manages to stretch out a fight with him, he will burn himself out before the end of the first round. The guy is so frenetic.
Rampage! "It's going to be this way for a long time baby!"Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

shedding some light on fedor
and Mark Hunt!
CREDIT TO CHINHEAD from Ninjashoes.net (THE BEST MMA FORUM)
Hey bros thought ive give you guys a heads up on what happened today before the weigh-ins there was a q and a with Dana and Joe Rogan, alot of interesting questions here is a brief overview of what Dana said...
He said he was very close to signing Fedor but he would not be there tomorrow, both he and rogan had massive grins of their faces, i thought he was lieing and the impression i got was that it was a done deal!!!
Dana said he has no doubts he will be signing Brock Lesner soon
Mark Hunt is under contract with the ufc at the moment but they dont know what to do with him, his biggest problem is the weight
If Sherk fails his appeal he will be stripped of the title and bj and stevenson will fight for the vacant title..
Arlovski will be fighting again in november didnt say who but said it would be a great match-up (my money is on big nog)
UFC will be doing shows in Canada, Mexico and Germany soon as well as more shows in the engalnd and scotland
He thinks banning steroid users for a year is a big enough punishment as they lose the ability to earn a living for a year
He would be interested in signing Denis Kang but had not heard from him or his management
No featherweights in the ufc for now, looking to push lighter fighters in WEC
Did not rule out when asked about the possibility of signing James Thompson in the future (not sure he knew who he was!)

Yeah, that's not the worst hometown decision I've seen, but it was pretty bad. I'll have to rewatch it. I gave the first round to Hamill easily, the second round to Hamill, and the last round narrowly to Bisping. I wanna watch again to see if there's any way a sane man could give Bisping round 2.Undisputed KING OF ASSHOLES.

I feel bad, I fought bad, maybe I'm getting older," he tried to make a joke. "My rib hurts, don't be mad, we're gonna continue. I just want to go home right now and take a rest. We'll see. Thanks to everyone who came to London to support me, thanks!"

My opinions...in soundbite form
Quinton Jackson Vs. Dan Henderson
Rampage is my hero
Matt Hamill Vs. Michael Bisping
Hamill got robbed, big time
Mirko Filipovic Vs. Cheick Kongo (the UFC site says 'Mirko Cro Cop Vs. Cheick Kongo')
Cro Cop has become gunshy, fighting to not lose rather than fighting to win. Kongo is huge
Houston Alexander Vs. Alessio Sakara
Houston is a fireball of asswhoopery
Tomasz Drwal Vs. Thiago Silva
Didn't see it
Marcus Davis Vs. Paul Taylor
Slick slick maneuvers on Davis' part. But Taylor made sure it was a war.
Gleison Tibau Vs. Terry Etim
Didn't see it
Anthony Torres Vs. Jess Liaudin
Didn't see it
Naoyuki Kotani Vs. Dennis Siver
Didn't see itKnowing is not enough, you must apply...
