Personally I would have stopped the Carwin fight when Brock was on his back, though he was always conscious and was defending himself, however feebly. But he rallied and ended up with an impressive win, which became more impressive as the truth emerged of just how sick he was for the year before the fight.

And I'm not a Brock nuthugger. I like the guy and think the HW division is better with a healthy and motivated Brock in it, but I'm a long way short of a nuthugger. I just think he cops a lot of flak that isn't deserved.

Besides, who really puts the hard yards in? I didn't hear too many people criticizing Cain's title shot. He had a win over old Nog and a win over Kongo. Then he took the belt off a champion who was suffering serious health issues, then he got splattered by one punch in his first defence, and had a title reign lasting sixty seconds. Maybe Cain isn't legit either hey?

see now this is actually a good post,

i hope they continue what there doin the flaws are there [yes cain is legit] but even saying flaws are there may be basically nit picking, every damn thing else their doing is working, i didnt bash nothing except Lesnars handling dont forget, i wish that we also kinda "force" our fighters to fight each cause that system actually works and works damn well [lol u really think silva wants to fight sonnen??] i hope that we get those types of matchups only when the deserving gets the benefits, and we get good fights at the end result, i will continue to watch the UFC and wish them some luck at the same time too..

They should have had him fight Chuck in a retirement fight, iceman would get the easy win and the show would have been huge on network TV. Freakshow or not.

It would have been a tough sell to keep Kimbo on board after his last four performances in the cage

This is nothing new for the UFC. They see no problem with putting on some of these freakshow events.

Freakshow is what the sport basically is................. not that there's anything wrong with that, I actually enjoy it for that reason.

Hence why UFC 1 was great because little dudes fought big fat dudes etc etc

Nah bull****. It shouldn't be a freakshow, it should be a legitimate sport. Which it has certainly become, and it will continue to evolve as better athletes choose to get into the fight game instead of football or basketball, because it's a legitimate sport with legitimate prestige instead of a circus sideshow.

Yes that is fair. But it's not fair to say that the sport as it is now is a freakshow. Because it isn't, not be a long shot.

My wife (who is the definition of an mma TUF noob) was sure that fight was fixed because it was so bad. In his last fight he got beat from pillar to post by a guy with no pro fights. Why keep him around?
yea that Alexander fight was totally fixed.

Kimbo vs James Toney would have been a great freakshow fight.

FYI The Velasquez vs Dos Santos did just under 10million viewers - 8.8million on Fox and a further million on Fox Deportes. Show averaged over 7million on Fox for the first 45minutes but fell off a cliff after the fight finished.
