I know it was, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. The occasion got the better of him. Like I've said, he'll have to learn. He's hardly a Kimbo.

No he's absolutely not a Kimbo, he was hyped before the fight and rightfully so.

Carwin will be back, he lacked some luck this time.

I knew you would say that Az... could have guessed you'd call him a douche bag and frankly, it's true, he have been acting like a douche lately.

Still, Sonnen is waaaaaaay wayyyy more of a cunt than silva. I really hope he will get his face smashed in tonight...

After all the Sonnen trash-talking, absolutely.

Though I don't think he has much of a chance. His wrestling is world class and he can take anyone to the floor, but that's about it. His gnp is nothing special, he can't pass guard and he's bad at defending submissions. A focused Anderson Silva gets him out of there fairly quickly.

I'm mostly looking forward to the other fights to be honest.

yeah +1, there's a lot of great fights on the card...

about sonnen

I think he has improved his ground and pound, he can be dangerous on the ground if silva gets tired (I think silva got tired against maia, that's why he was acting like an idiot, he didn't want to engage). But Silva is definitely the better fighter and if he's in top condition he should take this easely...

Main card prediction:

Anderson Silva - Chael Sonnen
Knock out in the third round.

John Fitch - Thiago Alves
Fitch could grind himself to a victory as he always does and there's a risk Alves will battle against ring rust. But watch out for Alves, he can knock out anyone in the division.

Matt Hughes - Ricardo Almeida
Hughes is past it, Almeida will win on knock out.

Roy Nelson - Junior dos Santos
It would be awesome if Nelson pulled of a win, he's cool. But I think Dos Santos is just to damn good right know. Bad bad match up for Nelson.

Clay Guida - Rafael dos Anjos
Guida will get a decision win.

I know that this UFC is kind of Brazil x USA but even if I were american, I would cheer for Silva.

I found Silva ridiculous when he fought with Maia but he said he regretted about it and Sonnen is doing way worse.

I hate this guys like Sonnen, Lesnar, Tito... why can't they just fight with their mouth shut. Without disrespecting their adversary.

I know that it helps giving more emotion to the fight but in the same time, it also helps myself to cheer against them.

I'm also looking forward to Cigano's (Junior dos Santos) fight. He's Minotauro pupil and seems to be as humble as his master.

UFC and rugby threads don't have much fans because ladies can't handle the smell. They rather smell Torres' ass.

I'm picking Alves and Dos Anjos, but those are really close fights, hard to predict. The rest I agree with.

Fucking crazy fight. I was like "what the fuck is that? Sonnen paid to win?" Because Anderson was being took over by Sonnen's wrestling. I never seen it happen before.

But still Anderson was better fighting on foot and on the second round myself and I guess everyone in the world was like "now Anderson better knock him down after get wrestled or he'll definitely lose". Then he fell without barely being touched, like a shit bag and the fight looked like done to Anderson. Then suddenly Anderson choked Sonnen with that unexpected triangle and that worth the whole fight.

In the end Anderson explained that he brake his ribs during the trainning and it kinda makes sense. When you brake your ribs you can't even breath without hurting then Anderson should be doped by painkillers.

Great fight by Cigano too. It seemed like a good fight but Roy was fucking badass and if Cigano got one of that punshes, he would probably be knocked down.

It was amazing to see how Roy had moments of stun but 5 seconds after the punshes he was always back on the fight again. Weird!

I got impressed by Clay Guida. He jumped and acted like a mad man for 3 fucking rounds! And even after he wins the fight, he was still jumping and made the biggest speech ever in the UFC. I think that this guy doesn't need to breath.

Now I'm looking forward to Anderson Silva x Vitor Belfort and Cigano x Lesnar.

One of the things that got me pissed off from Anderson is that he was leaving his hands down pretty much all the time. Why in the world would you keep ur face open to someone like Sonnen?

On foot he's probably the best - but on the ground he can beaten. That was clear from that match.

I've only seen Silva (before) from all the guys who fought yesterday - (he's the only name I've remembered. Sonnen from the highlights before the match looked badass - spoke a lot - and he actually did what he said he'll do. Respect for him.


I'm waiting to watch Lesnar - watched a few matches for him at UFC and he's a damn monster.

Anyone who watched UFC on regular terms - can he tell us when there are matches and such?

Nowadays, they have close to 20 events per year(if you include pay-per-views and UFC Fight Nights).

The UFC now is completely different to what it was when it first started. Basically Rorion Gracie brought Vale Tudo to the US, aiming to show what would work in an actual fight(and that Gracie Jiu Jitsu > rest). So the first UFCs were tournaments running over the course of one night, pitting martial art vs martial art(there were no well rounded fighters back then, or mixed martial artists as they would call them now).

His brother Royce(who wasn't even the family's best fighter, that was Rickson) dominated competition in the early UFCs by using what would now be considered as basic brazilian jiu-jitsu skills, as pretty much nobody had any idea what to do once the fight hit the floor. After that the popularity of BJJ exploded.

If you watch any of the early UFCs from 90s you will see that it was basically the Wild Wild West; bare-knuckled, sumo wrestlers fighting people half their size, a guy with ONE boxing glove, flying teeth, no rounds & time limits, etc.
