This was also my call prior to the fight.

I think they easily deserved fight of the night but I believe that Belcher and Gouveia got it instead.
I have to say that kick was open and although not a kicker BJ felt the opening and adjusted to fill it. Thing of beauty.
Certainly worth mentioning is the size of that cut and his shins impact, rattled Diego but didnt drop him. Tough SOB. Worthy of a title shot, but they better get a new Matt Hughes to deal w BJ cuz I dont see it happening for awhile.
Maybe if Koshcheck cut off a foot to cut weight? I guess I'd still bet on BJ though.
There are often good matchups on the card but they dont necessarily turn into good fights. Almost all the fights were sweet last night! Even Mir's, as short as it was it was vindicating for him and exciting for us. I'm kinda pumped actually. Normally I'm happy if I can get one good fight maybe two. Last night was cool

Olympic Volleyball - Har Har!! I concur Russ.
I was a little surprised by that comment about Struve Hesp. Agile I guess, but lethargically applied. Yet he is young and has tons of potential, it just didnt show easily last night with thicky Paul thumpin him. I said last night he needs more fitness, but its more than that. He does have tons of time and I do think he will get better soon.
I know Mir has a big mouth but he tends to back so is it confidence or cockiness?
He does get some naysayers though doesnt he Hesp. I never paid much attention to him in the old days so maybe its old attitudes haunting him, he doesnt seem any more of a tool than any the other super Alphas there OR HERE! could easily be wrong though.
Mir Dirt please if anyone hates him.
I thought he looked a little chunkey Diesel! That was a big Mir for sure! But not slow, however, we really didnt get to see him throw that weight around for long.
That triangle was sweet. He could see it long before he put it on. I thought I could. (by a long time I mean a few seconds, not that he had been setting it up much, but I thought he was gettin ready).
Nazir you are right on the button. BJ has been able (and willing!) to fight much larger,
but he is unstoppable at his (near) normal size. Scientist. Its amazing, BJ and ASilva are so accurate and strong standing that we hardly get to see their PRIMARY skills (BJJ) in action! They dont even need to fall back on their highly competent ground prowess.
Personally I gave the crowd a little credit, and figured they were booing him for the same reason I was yelling at my TV: there was 0% chance Sanchez would get Penn down with his single leg attempts. Penn's defense is just too good. Not that I can really blame the guy. He was totally outclassed in standup and had to change the game somehow.

"I'm calling Sanchez by 4th round TKO. It's his time."
"Don't believe the hype!"
Well, I forgot to put my picks in before the fights, but, this^^^. Mir looked good. With Nog new and improved, Mir new and improved, Cain and Carwin, the HW div is looking pretty stacked even without Brock. Also, I was and remain a Mir fan.

im jusy glad that sanchez got fucked up, man i hate that guy. great fighter yes, but his "YES!" **** and his wannabe gangster act and his mean mugging when he looks like a 14 year old boy just grates me.
We were ranting at my place during the PPV about that. Don't fucking advertise *over* the fiht. Goldberg is such a tool.
