Showtime!!!!

This dude is such a good fighter. Lethal, exciting striker, dangerous ground game. He's a force. That sub was flawless...

And I couldnt stand Bendo w/ his Tebow-ish reverance of the lord, his unkempt beard/hair, and his toothpick shenanigans...

I will say this, I feel bad for Bendo only in the sense that it must suck having your belt taken from you by the same guy in 2 different organizations

War Pettis!

Yea that Jesus and Lord strengthens me crap really annoys me after the fights too, like seriously they all thank God for wins but no one blames him for the losses, it's like "Yea Jesus had my back but obviously he liked the other guy more".

At least it's not as bad as Vitor's "I LOVE YOU CHEEEEEZUS!"

I wasn't overly impressed with Benson's title reign overall though. He dominated Diaz, beat Melendez in a close one but I don't think he beat Edgar in their 2nd fight. Decent run for him but for someone of his size and athleticism at LW, you just kinda expect more.

Pettis with the solid takedown defense he showed in this fight is very dangerous.

really cool to see pettis grab the belt. what a pleasant night of results for me.

was never a big fan of bendo... probably because i thought he came out on the lucky side of too many coin-slip decisions. i want a more decisive champ than that. also, his defense is just too porous for my taste, and all that LORD stuff starts to get tiresome.

on the plus side for him, i really liked the way he went for the takedown, trapped pettis against the fence, then started attacking the shins relentlessly. more leggy fighters should be doing that IMO. i was worried pettis was just going to get ground down to zero mobility after a couple rounds of that.

btw, i disagree that mir was stopped early. he just had nothing in any area for josh... was getting lit up everywhere.

mir's brain cells will gratefully thank the ref... eventually.


EDIT: oh yea, mendes looks like a super-speedy, extremely powerful killer. first time i've ever seen him, i think... great stuff!

If Pettis' knee isn't too bad, his and Grant's timelines could match up. I guess we have to find out more.

they need to make some kind of MMA show based around josh and don frye. it would be highly educational and highly hysterical.

"I dropped down because I knew I was in a bad position. I even redug for the underhook"



really bro? i guess falling in a heap is a new strategy. he also said he was going for a single leg, lol. he was also talking about cardio as if barnett hasn't been in some long wars himself.

might have been a slightly early stoppage but he was still in trouble regardless. barnett's wrist/arm control on him that whole round was crazy. he was slowly getting dismantled. that's been my biggest criticism of mir forever. he's great on the ground but he's not good at grappling. he doesn't really take offensive control of taking a guy to the ground and he doesn't dictate fights. his clinch game is severely lacking.

i so wouldn't mind a werdum vs. barnett fight but i understand if werdum gets the next title shot after JDS/cain. let's just do war master vs. browne and mir vs. overeem.

vera has to be one of the most frustrating fighters in recent history. so much potential there, but can't finish. not sure if comes down to motivation or what, but it seems like he'll always hover around top 10 and not do much of anything.

oh and war pettis!



anyway, definitely an awesome card. much better than ufc 163. liked mendes' fight as well and i'm not a fan of guida so it was nice seeing him get KO'd for the first time. mendes actually looked like he was starting to get gassed though so he should probably take it easy in the weight room. still can't envision him as champ...he's just not dynamic either but he can challenge.

Pettis went straight from the arena to his father's grave to show him the title



I wanted Bendo to win but I'm happy for Pettis. Kinda ironic that Henderson lost his title on a Sunday morning though.
