First two quick bouts were fantastic for entertainment value. Main event was a bit slow paced, but solid and the co-feature bout started off well but ended with a horrible decision and stalled last round.

Overall, it wasn't a bad show for free. If you thought it was bad, then you have yet to see some of the worst of MMA.

When MMA is good, it's entertaining. No doubt... In the same way Gatti-Ward is, kind of.

It'll never produce a Hearns-Leonard 1 type fight, though. Hence why I'll always prefer boxing over MMA... Always. And while it may be cliche, the "sweet science" is still a valid argument for boxing.

But each to their own, as I always say.

I just got back from casino, was playing Poker and it was on all the televisions. The punches being thrown were so ****ing ridiculous, it was laughable. You expect them to come back with a crisp counter, but instead the other guy just loops back his own haymaker.... Was pretty bad from what I saw.

The level of retardation involved with some people...

"I just watched all of MMA event whatever and I hated every minute of it. All it is is gay rolling around on the ground blah blah blah."

That's like, the most ridiculous thing ever.

"I just watched 3 hours of daytime soap operas and boy it sure is shitty..."

DONT ****ING WATCH IT IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT.

I was pleaed with the show. I really liked the main event. It reminded me of the fight Jackson had with Matt Lindland at that WFA show last year. It wasn’t as good as that fight, but I thought that it was good all the same.

That said, as much as I liked the way the main event unfolded it was probably a fight more for MMA purists than causal fans.

I was at the show live and came away pleased overall. My brother who’s a casual fan of both boxing and MMA came away feeling the same.

As someone said, if you don't like MMA don't watch it.

I don't like tennis. Therefore I don't watch Tennis. If you don't like MMA it seems ridiculous to watch an MMA show simply so you can go online and write, "MMA 4 fags. It suxs."

Wow, their boxing isnt as good as a profesional boxer. Im willing to bet you that Mayweather's grappling game isnt 1/100th as good as MMA'ers grappling skills either.

Stop watching MMA and trying to look for boxing in it, it is not boxing. MMA fans dont watch boxing and start looking for how good their grappling game is.

Boxing is boxing anyways, it incoorperates very different set of arsenal/defense skills than to MMA where you dont only worry about fist to head and body, you worry about kicks, elbows and grabs. Fighters can barely deal with Ruiz grabbing, imagine how they would deal with a professional gappler...

Exactly... And many on here are acting like boxing has zero issues and every fight and show is exciting. Hardly. At least when an MMA fight is a stinker it can only last max 5 rounds.

At least in MMA the top fighters are actually fighting each other. No tune-up fights against tomato cans.

It is for a fact on all kinds of channels. What burns my biscuits is one of there (MMA) arguments is how boxing is fragmented, ABC, blah, blah , blah..... But look at thier shit. They have the luxury of refering to IT ALL as MMA, but what's the real shit?? There's UFC, BoDog Fights, What ever X-treme Showtime calls it, What's the real shit??
And another thing I saw championship matches between dudes with records like (5-3) vs (8-4). Get the **** out of here with some damn MMA.

The last night's show was great, I liked the main event as well, Rampage impressed me as an overall a great fighter.

MMA is different from boxing and stands on its own as a different sport, I like both because they are combat sports.

Precisely, I also watch them for two different reasons. I watch boxing for pure entertainment value and I watch MMA to see it continue to evolve, for entertainment and to observe different stylistic technique's because I am a martial artist myself, if the bout is not entertaining to me, I can still watch it just to observe technical things.

If you think the top class guys are just bar fighters that roll around, please observe a bit closer, you're dealing with some of the best wrestlers, brazilian jiu jitsu and hybrid styles in the world at times.

The boxing skill of them needs to improve, but it's going to as time goes on.

But it really is alarming when someone says there is 'nothing to' what's going on in any given MMA matchup, then again, they also rank Bernard Hopkins as the best LHW H2H at the moment.
