No, but I personally was cheering for Kim. Objectively, it would have been better if Tito had won. That would have been a tremendous feel-good moment for a legend and for the fans. But, it was not to be.

The best part was seeing Forrest run out the cage like he did when Anderson destroyed him.

LOL. Would be interesting to find out. I lol'd that time when he hit Irvin and he dropped like a ton of bricks (and then turtled). By the time I finished laughin' I looked up to see that Silva had opened a ****** under Irvin's eye. I figure the shots actually hurt.

That was very strange. And he came right back seemingly in good spirits. Why would he run out?

The post-fight "**** it, I'm going to interview Tito myself" was bizarre but somehow awesome. Dana's mad at him now. But Forrest is rich as hell, the UFC basically owes its existence to him, he knows he could never beat Jon Jones and he's been the champ before anyway, so he don't give a **** if Dana is mad.

I too would have liked to see an UFC legend go out on top.

Particularly since he started losing big fights at age 28, and most of the PRIDE fighters don't decline until their early 30's.

Canada's combat morale is doing just fine, thanks for asking.

By the way, many thanks to Silva for ****-kicking the steroid cheat in the rematch. The last thing anyone needed was to see a douche like Sonnen as champion.

Secondary thanks go to Silva for providing the inspiration for The Spider's awesome avatar.

Chael Sonnen is now a prime suspect (if he wasn't already) for a steroid cheating **** !!! , he went out cheaply and he knew it , there was an air of expectancy in the way he lost

Very very questionable

That said , a well timed knee to the solar plexus from a muay thai specialist can finish anybody at any given time

But i stand on what I've said about Sonnen , big question marks ??

Pascal got beat on by a man old enough to be his father for his belt. No matter what he does for the rest of his career, he and Canada have to live that down.
