Brock took a hit fairly well. He just curls up when he gets a pounding. Loved his cartwheel when he threw one at Cain. Takes some coordination to be that out of it and stay on your feet. I love AM boxing/jujitsu and would have fallen straight forward in his situation!


The rumor is his sparring partners weren't allowed to hit him in the face.

WTF kind of way is that to get ready for getting punched in the face? LOL!

Judging by the gash he had under his eye, I think his scar tissue was really weak. Be shitty to get a gash like that just before he had a title fight. Cain opened him up!

A knee will do that...especially the one Cain threw that stiffened him up...

Wow did Machida Get Robbed, you know it was bad when even Rampage was shocked he won. I wish they would just make all the main events 5 rounders.
Is this the line for the beer, or the line for the coupons for the beer?

I could see the first two rounds going to Rampage. Machida probably won "the fight" but round by round I can see it going that way.

I BJ Penn can come in like that against Fitch, and keep it up, that could be a great fight.

Some good fights last night at the last WEC before it gets folded into the UFC.

Anthony Pettis (trains with Eric Koch from CR and Ben Askren) wins the LW title for a shot against the winner of Edgar and Maynard.

Matrix style :)

That might have moved into the top 5 strikes of all time for me...maybe number 1.

I was wondering how it was possible to get that kind of rotation and then realized he pushed off the cage with his kicking leg.

As the NFL takes a snooze this weekend, the MMA world has some great fights lined up.

http://sports.espn.go.com/extra/mma/col ... id=5959259

Anyone with ION will get the prelims featuring Des Moines native Jeremy Stephens welcoming Marcus Davis to the LW division. Look for a slugfest with the kid getting the better of the older Davis.

15 fights on Japan's Dynamite! card.

Who is going to win, Silva or Belfort?
