- The Fight of the Night was no doubt the slugfest between Paul Taylor and Chris Lytle. That was ahard bout to judge. The decision went to Lytle, but I probably would have given it to Taylor due to his aggressivness. By the way, how did a judge score that fight 30-27 in favor of Lytle? I am not mad that Lytle got the decision win, I just wish someone didn’t have to lose a fight that is so close
- Marcus Davis looked really good and Paul Kelly looked very uimpressive. I think Marcus will be granted his plea to fight at UFC 93 in Ireland. Looks like a Lytle vs. Davis match up is coming.
- Sokoudjou looked impressive to start, he throw hard punches and hard kicks. However, if Sokoudjou wants to keep winning he needs to work on some cardio. He wore out. Cane knew this coming in and weatehred the storm. Cane is for real folks. He has some power and a chin. He is a guy to watch out for in the light heavyweight divison.
- I thought Brandon Vera looked better than he did against Andy. However, Jardine got the split decision win. I probably would have given the decision to Vera, but that is the way it goes.
- The main event was solid. Bispin was the clear crowd favorite. He clearly won that fight. No, not in typical Bisping fashion, but he handled himself well against Leben and proved he is a serious contender. However, Leben looked solid. He looked better than ever.
