    So, Rashad defeats Silva by multiple takedowns. Hardly the most entertaining fight in either man's career.

    Too bad Silva was too tired/busy clowning to capitalize when he had Rashad rocked in the 3rd.

    Anyone who knows portuguese well enough to tell us what curse-words came out of Silva's mouth when he was sitting pressed against the cage, after having been taken down for the umpteenth time?

    Evans said he needed to get back to his roots, and he did. Honestly, I think this is the best move for him. He was good as a pure wrestler, scary as a boxer, and now I think he'll be close to unstoppable if he can put it together right.

    Thiago had to have been deliberately imitating Anderson a couple of times there.

    Is it just me or would it really help J-Lau if he picked up some takedowns from clinch? I just watched the fight and he kept shooting for a double that wasn't working at all.

    I've really enjoyed what I've seen of the event so far....

    Some really good finishes and I thought Rashad looked good mixing it up, really wish Thiago had the energy to push it at the end there.

    Pretty TKO by Cigano,
    but I'm still not ready to jump on the bandwagon. He keeps his chin up too high for my liking and hasn't had to deal with serious takedown attempts yet.

    Hopefully they'll feed Vera to him next.

    the Paul Daley finish was murderous.

    Vera's fought as a heavyweight before.

    Also, his chin is pretty impressive so far. He walked right through everything Yvel had to offer and Crocop never really had him in trouble either. I'm more interested in seeing how Dos Santos fares against a decent grappler before getting excited about his future in the title picture, considering the top of the HW division is incredibly grappling-heavy.

    Hopefully he'll get Cain after the Brown Streak grinds out the most grueling split decision we've ever seen over Big Nog.

    Also, Rashad had more takedowns than strikes on the ground or positional improvements.
