TUF was actually pretty good for a card with a lot of fighters I don't care about. I think Rousey beats Zingano in their eventual matchup since she couldn't avoid being taken down by Tate.

 

UFC on Fox 7 should be fantastic though. I think it's the best free MMA card I've seen.

 TUF17 had some amazing fighters! TUF16 sucked too much drama

 

Can't wait for TUF18

I think Hall will still be a force. 

Cat was down & out but she came back so strong. 

And is it me, or did the elbows Travis Browne dropping on Gonzaga look illegal?

So happy for Matt Brown. 

 

Hoping he gets a title shot next.

 

Man... Nate Diaz is a great fighter but his cockiness gets him destroyed.

Terrible co-main event.  Mir is done. 

 

Melendez was robbed, what a complete and absolute joke.

Cormier will never fight Cain cause they're best friends, that sucks.

 

The Melendez fight was close, but the numbers probably did favor Benson just enough and also considering when you face the champ, you gotta' know that you can't leave it up to the judges. You usually gotta' really make a statement and have a significant lead. Can't take chances leaving it in their hands on a toss-up or close.

 

& I absolutely agree with you about Diaz. He's his own worst enemy.

Cormier will get destroyed if he moves down in weight to fight Jones.

 

I thought Melendez won the first 3 rounds.  


I'm hoping Melendez gets an immediate rematch.

I thought Benson won a close one. He landed more strikes, even if most of them weren't significant. Ben's leg kicks were probably the most significant damage of the fight.

 

Cormier/Mir was really boring. It coincided with CHI/BKN too. Thanks NBA/UFC.

 

I was not expecting Diaz to get finished like that. Thomson had a really good trio of fights against Melendez, so he's just good. He's for real.

I hope Cormier drops to 205 so it'll make the division more stacked. I also hope Mir fights Brock. lol

 

Gil Melendez is really good. I had him winning, but i don't know since i was drinking while watching the fight. probably watch the replay later

Maybe it's just me, but I didn't think Benson really was all that effective with his leg kicks (compared to his fight before with Diaz where Diaz could barely walk and Benson was constantly jabbing the knee).

 

Benson jabbed Melendez's knee once.

 

Gil landed some great combinations (one of the combinations being two body shots and then a nice punch to the head) which was late in the fight.

 

As far as I know Dana hasn't said anything about that fight (post fight), but I'd be interested to hear who he had winning that fight since he's not one to hold back (especially when he feels the judges made a terrible decision).

Well he certainly left visible colored marks on Melendez's leg for what it's worth.

I hope Gil's next fight is vs Josh Thomson.

 

Winner of that fight should get a shot at the title (after Benson defends it again).

Dam, Nate's never gotten his tail whupped like that. 

Main event & co-main event were lackluster IMO. Mir looked like if he went all out, he might have a change. And DC didn't look very aggressive.

This is a great example of why a lot of people want him to be in the WWE.

 

Chael is also really good friends with CM Punk by the way.

Chael is highly entertaining. He's just got it where he can turn it on & captivate a crowd. He's still getting smashed on Saturday tho.

I think Chael is going to last longer than people think and he'll put up a decent fight. If he stayed disciplined in his 2nd fight against Anderson, that fight might've gone the distance too. He won the first round and Anderson wasn't getting a lot of offense in before he slipped on that spinning back fist. Still, I think Bones wins. I think he'll get the finish near the end of the fight, maybe in the 4th or 5th round.

 

I think Bisping, Big Country, and Mr. Wonderful win as well.
