Its hard to pick fights like that I must admit. Again I had 2 rounds to Akiyama as well, I wasn't swayed at all by the commentators thinking this was Bisbing / Hamil #2 or some ****.

Budweiser should sponsor Fedor to cave Lesnar's face in.
congrats to Hendo for taking home a cool $600k
He talks funny. And his flag has the right colours, but the wrong design.:tongue1:

...but for them to bitch about that, while nuthugging machida.
What did lesnar say about budweiser?
"I'm going home. I'm going to drink Coors Lite. COORS LITE because Budweiser won't pay me nothing"

Henderson/Bisping: The lesson we take away from this? Rising stars: Never, ever talk smack to a legend. Bisping sounded pretty humble in the post-fight from what I've read, so here's hoping he grows from that ass kicking and improves. Also, the Bisping hate (at least on my end) stems from the perception that- while skilled, Bisping is over-hyped, lacks power and ground game, and enjoys smack-talk. I heard the pre-fight promo, "Dan Henderson has been around for a long time, and fought a lot of top guys. He earned his way to the top," and commented aloud, "Michael Bisping... hasn't."
GSP/Alves: Jesus Christ. I mean Anderson Silva has cleaned out his division too, but Jesus Christ. I'm not sure whats scarier, the champion just knocking out everyone, or utterly dominating the top contenders for 25 minutes. Between this and the Fitch fight? Damn.
Lesnar/Mir: First of all, to anyone who complains about the fans booing Lesnar as he walked in? Mir is from Las Vegas. Always has been. He's the hometown boy, and fans will boo the visiting team. Get over it. Secondly, Lesnar had won me over after his first couple UFC fights, especially the classy way he handled the first loss to Mir.
I know Mir talked a lot of trash (strike one), but take a cue from Dan Henderson and leave your revenge in the fight. I hate Lesnar not because he got fast tracked to the title (which he still won from Couture and validated against Mir), not because he was a pro wrestler (although I didn't like him as a pro wrestler), and not because he's bigger than his opponents (Andre the Giant: "Its not my fault always being the biggest and the strongest"). The man is an exceptional athlete, a skilled competitor, and looks to dominate the division as it stands now.
I don't like him because I don't like poor sportsmen. I know he isn't the first to flip off the fans, and get in a defeated opponent's face. But guess what? I hate the other guys who have done that too. Melvin Guillard, Tank Abbott, Tito Ortiz, they all make me sick. No one else has to agree, but that's my take.
**** Brock Lesnar, the undisputed Heavyweight champion of the UFC. I respect his ability and skill, but still hate the guy.
Please don't even TRY to compare Bisping to Machida, there is no comparrision to be made except "look at how much better Machida is".
