Yeah, apparently he's got the longest reach in the whole of the UFC. And that includes longer than Heavyweight Stefan Struve, who's about 6ft 11! Freaky but effective.

And as much as I like Hardy, I really can't see him getting the win here. The reality is that you're not gonna win by decision against GSP. He's too dominant and relentless over 5 rounds. For me, Hardy's only chance is catching him on the chin (Serra style) but if he didn't manage to finish either Davis or Swick, what chance does he have against GSP? I really hope I end up eating my words though, as I'd love an English champion, not to mention the increase in British fans it would earn for the UFC.


Gah!! I hate to say it but I think you're right. If it was kickboxing match I'd actually go with Hardy, he's a heavier hitter if technically equal but it's not and GSP is too smart for that, it'll go to ground and be a subbage of some sort for a GSP victory.

Also, who do you guys think is gonna win between Mir vs. Carwin. I genuinely can't predict it! For me, it's by far the anticipated fight of the night.

I'm going to go with Carwin, the man has brutal knockout power and although Mirs stand up has improved greatly I just think Carwin will be to big and powerful for him. Plus, I'd rather see Carwin take on Lesnar than Mir for a third time.

Well Hardy may have lost but he sure as hell proved himself! The pain he must have been in with the positions his arms ended up in! I was wincing watching it.

I agree, So impressed with Hardy. I imagine he's earnt a lot of new fans from that performance, despite the obvious dominance by GSP. And Joe Rogan seemed to be hinting at him moving up to Middleweight which he sadly isn't considering now. The next contenders to fight him? Fitch, Koscheck, Daley. I just feel that each of them will get utterly dominated. No disrespect to them or anyone in the division but he's wrestling and technique is simply too good! Think its time he moved up to Middleweight in sight of a new challenge.

Oh, and Carwin...Wow. Lesnar vs. Carwin is going to be insane.

Props to Hardy. Apparantly GSP was actually going 100% on his arm and was trying to break it.

Amazed he didn't tap out. GSP is great but my God he's boring. Going toe to toe with Hardy never a good idea so I guess he got his tactics right!

Any one watch the Ultimate Fighter with Liddel and Ortiz as captains. Welterweights all look pretty good should be a good season, and that was one nasty broken nose that dude got.

That's great.

I can't seem to find the full episode though, I can only find the aftermath. How long does it take for the new season episodes to appear?

That fight was a joke and very disrespectful to Maia.  I wanted Maia to land a lucky shot and knock him out in the end.

I decided to watch UFC for the first time tonight, the Welterweight Championship fight, and fuck me was that boring, St Pierre the undisputed champion was just rolling round on the floor hugging the guy for 5 rounds straight (I know they were submissions but most of the time they didn't look like it).

I hope most other fights are more interesting than that, as that fight has just put me right off UFC and I was hoping to get into it.

It really was disrespectful, and it's no wonder Dana White was doing his nut. Anderson might be good but to be honest I think he's a fucking joke. Most of his fights are painfully boring because he's a counter puncher and most people are weary of getting in the octogon and trading with him, Silva just dances around like a prick to make it look like he's doing something when he actually isn't. He's bloody boring. It's only when he goes in against someone like Forrest Griffin (who will always come forward) that we get a good fight, but like I say that's mainly down to the opponent. I just can't stand Silva.

That is one of the main prob with people and ufc unless you actually know what there trying to do when there grappling on the ground it can come across quite boring. i was the same as you until i had some mma lesson's and my viewing of ufc changed.

Thats very true, the UFC (and all MMA arenas) have some of the most exciting stand-up in combat sports today but the grappling is usually an unwelcome break for spectators and it's understandable. I used to find it boring until I took up BJJ and now I can appreciate it as a master class.

I always tell people that as soon as it goes to ground it's pure technique.  Can see how it can be boring for newcomers who don't have much of an understanding,  they watch for explosive finishes and end up watching to guys roll about on the floor for 25 minutes.

It's no different to any other sport I suppose. Someone who has little interest in Football could see an amazing 10-pass play that leads to a goal and be relatively unimpressed yet to a fan of the sport, that's just, if not more impressive than a 35 yard screamer. The same can be said for MMA. It's got to the point now where I find an out-of-nowhere submission just as exciting as an explosive KO. Keep watching SHP!

And yeah, what a bizarre PPV. Edgar winning the title was the biggest upset I've seen since Serra defeated GSP and then Silva goes and overshadows it entirely; yet not in the way that many of us would have expected. I can't explain what happened to him in the final 2 rounds and in the first 3, although coming off as impressive, still did himself no favours. To mock someone with obvious lacklustre stand-up skills in simply pointless. It would have been no different if Maia had gone to ground and started screaming at Silva to join him. One thing's for sure, Maia earned a lot of new fans. A broken nose and only one visible eye and yet He was the one swinging come the end of the fight.

The worst thing about this is that it makes MMA look like a complete joke. Whilst watching the replay of fight, I began to flick over to the David Haye fight and for the first time in quite a while, boxing looked like the superior sport. It wasn't the most exciting fight but at least it wasn't a man prancing around an octagon and treating the whole thing as a joke. God knows what a first time viewer would have thought if that was the first fight they witnessed!
