GSP by total destruction (Fitch could barely handle Chris Wilson)
Herring by foot lock (this is a wish, not a betting man's choice)
Florian TKO via elbows (KenFlo is great, Huerta is the jackass)
Gamburyan TKO
MacDonald TKO

Some damn good fights...Lesnar looked very dominant...if not kinda boring.

GSP dominated, Fitch can take a beating!

I don't think BJ will have much for GSP, unless he catches him on the button ala Serra.

Manvel got KTFO! damn that was quick.

That was quite the half-assed left hook from Emerson to tko Manvel. The Huerta/Florian fight was kind of a boring fight to watch. I still can't believe the beating Fitch took and still kept coming forward. All around a good ppv.

Hey...I didn't say it wouldn't have knocked me on my ass either. I just said it looked half-assed as he was falling to the side and connected with the hook.

He was actually holding himself up with his left, and saw the opening, and POW! Left hook to the FACE! It was pretty stout. Despenes and I watched it about 6 times.

That and the Lesnar right hand...which was almost a jab....had Herring doing a somersault! If the shoulder block would have connected, Heath Herring could be dead, or at least in a very deep coma.

I hear ya on the shoulder block. When I saw Herring go rolling back, I was like...here comes the freight train...

Anybody remember Rufus R. Jones and the freight train from their childhood ?!

I only know Casey Jones .......... he didn't watch his speed and wound up dead ............ if only he could have seen the trouble ahead that was the lady in red :shock:

Those short hooks have all kinds of power...remember Rampage putting Chuck Liddell on his butt? Anyway that was Manny's dose of karma for that cheap shot in his last fight, IMO. Go to 2:17 in the video. http://video.google.com/videosearch?q=manny+gamburyan&hl=en&emb=0#

The fights all went the way I thought they would...Fitch said it best afterwards, "speed kills". I didn't predict GSP would be quite so dominating though, even in the wrestling. Jon Fitch might be the toughest guy in the UFC.

Brock Lesnar was both scary and funny...that first punch was sickening, it hurt to watch. Then the rest of the fight he didn't know how to finish Herring! The laughing and pointing at the beginning of round 3 was both unsportsmanlike and funny to watch. What a guy...

Florian fought a smart fight against a brawler. That was cool to watch someone finally slow down Roger Huerta using good technique.

Very entertaining PPV.

Florian a jackass? Huerta's said some pretty funny stuff if you ask me...Florian is also a wicked commentary guy, he did an awesome job in April. Great replacement for Joe "Dr. Hyperbole" Rogan.

Yeah, Florian is a good guy IMO. MMA Live (ESPN) has him on and he's fantastic.

I think Huerta is tough as nails, and had a dose of humble pie...hopefully the UFC keeps him around. He is right though, these guys need a retirement plan, and it does cost alot to stay at the top of this game. He just shouldn't air his laundry to the press.

Looking forward to the next few UFC's, especially the December card. They're talking like 5-6 high profile fights. Including Rampage vs. Shogun!

How can they already be at UFC 87? That's more than twice the number of Super Bowls. You're doing it wrong.
