- I thought WEC put on another outstanding card
- Jamie Varner looked impressive and perhaps I underestimated his talent. He looked dominant against a very game Marcus Hicks. It appears he will fight the winner of the McCullough/Cerrone fight in Septmeber.
- Josh Grispi may be a good challenge for Urijah Faber, but Faber must get through Brown first
- Brian Stann showed he is one dimensional and Steve Cantwell showed he has a vast array of striking skills. I think Stann will get a rubber match soon though.
- Brian Stann though he losses showed that he was a class act. He put the belt around Cantwell and he did nothing but show humility in defeat. I like Brian Stann for that.
- Carlos Condit vs. Hirumitsu Miura was the fight of the night and one of the best I have seen. I underestimated Miura. He showed good ground game in reversing Condit numerous times and excellent Judo skills. He also showed very tough striking. I enjoyed the chess match here.
- Condit showed why he is the champ. His conditioning is what proved to be the difference. I have no problem with the stoppage as Mirua laid there for a while after the fight. The question for Carlos Condit is where does he go now?
- The WEC showcased some newer and upcoming talent like Josh Grispi, Brian Bowles, Mike Budnik and Shane Roller
