every time rousey fights while being a champion it will be the main event. she will of course have the least number of challenges than any other champion though.

Some great submissions tonight. Robertson deserves SOTN, but I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it to Rousey, even though she just did what she was expected to do.

He better. I think he will though. At least share the honors with Rousey. The UFC has actually always been pretty fair with the of the night bonuses IMO

White just charged peeps for what would have been a Strikeforce card.

Pretty damn good card. Hendo/Machida was a bit of a disappointment, but other than that, I am pleased.
I always enjoy watching Machida fight. I can never figure out how these judges look at his fights. Any person that would have Henderson winningthat fight is insane . I gave all three rounds to him 30 to 27 I could see perhaps giving the first round to Henderson.

Machida is one of my favorites, but there are some fights where he could definitely be a bit more offensive. This was one of them. If he would add just a consistent, solid, flickering jab into his arsenal, his fights would be a lot less debatable. Or maybe Jones style linear leg kicks kicks. Just something to add to his output when he isn't countering or throwing his real significant offensive strikes.

I didn't find it too good... Im going off the main 3 fights. Faber got a SUB in the 1st round.. Machida wins a lackluster fight and Ronda wins Via 1st round armbar.. Big suprise! The Main event was bullshit... Machida-Hendo should of been the main event because it would of been 5 rounds instead of 3! My grade for this card C-

Hopefully UFC 158 delivers!

Faber got a great submission. It was a short fight, but that happens.

Machida/Hendo, yes, disappointing.

Liz put up a better fight than expecting, and Ronda got another armbar.

And it was a 12 fight card to me, not 3, so our outlooks differ there. At least 9 or those were exciting/interesting. C- is absurd. Like, not even a fan of the sport at all absurd.

And at least 2 of those fights were fantastic. Bermudez/Grice could likely be up for fight of the year
