Only one fight on the card really stood out, the Cane fight.

Jardine's and Bisping's wins were good, but not spectacular.

Not exactly what I was hoping for when I heard about this card.

I dont know what the big problem is there have been much worse cards. There was no BAD fight all the fights where solid exept Taylor-Lytle which was very good.

Wel you expect the commericals it being on Spike and what not but why did they have to be so long ? Let them have real short 45 secound commerical in between rounds like boxing or like they do for live UFC this one they claimed was live which we all knew was bullshit the fights where over 6 hours before the telecast.

I'm glad all 3 judges didn't score the fight 30-27.I thought Leben did enough to win the second round,he sure got beat up in round 1 though.

I had really high hopes for the Jardine/Vera fight, and it turned out to be quite the let down. Vera is terrible at 205. He's a skinny weakling.

Vera has been gun-shy in his last few fights.

Yea, its really bad.

Vera needs to watch Bisping, he successfully did what Vera wanted to do, counter strike, but doing it without becoming completely passive and not working.

I think Vera worries too much about being 100% technically correct, this leads to him doing absolutely nothing, and losing. His career is hanging by a thread I think.

When Vera first appeared in the UFC, he was very exciting. I actually bought into him. Especially when he demolished Mir. I don't know what happened to him. He has the talent to be a top 10 LHW. He's just not applying it when he fights. I wonder what the UFC is going to do with him.

This is like 99% MMA fighters out there. They don't fight, they go through technique motions. Not to get on the train again but I think thats what sets Fedor apart from everyone else. He goes out there and fights and happens to use the techniques he learned. While most of the fighters go out there and do techniques and happen to be in the fight instead of in front of a heavy bag.

I thought it was ok in a TUF way you know? It's hard to take tuf and free UFC's too seriously you know?? I am deffinatley into the whole fight game aspect of WWF, Boxing, and the new MMA scece which started with UFC and then you could say TUF. So I mean after what I have scene with the modern TUF format annd UFC's a card like that actually was what I expected-real long story.
Now what really gets me is how did Leben go from Welterweight to Light Heavy . I think Zuffa and Dana White told him, they had opening for him at light heavy .
Anywhoo I missed the whole Jardine and Vera fight. Apparently the second round was pretty good.

WWF is not a fight game. Leben was never a Welterweight and last nights fight took place at Middleweight. Hard to take TUFs seriously ? They have produced some of the best fighters in the world.

Last nights fight was at 185, where Leben fought on TUF, and almost the entirety of his career. Bisping fought on TUF at 205, and has recently dropped to 185, because that is better suited to his body size.

You all I must be mistakened, but when I saw a repeat of the TUF episodes with LEben, I was under teh impression that on his show there were two weightclasses welterweight and lightheavywiehgt. Diego Sanchez won the welterweight class and Forrest won the lightheavyweight class. I mean Leben lost to Koscheck-long story there. And Koscheck is a welterwight because he's fighting Alves who fought Hughes who is a welterweight. I am still thinking Leben was a welterwight before this fight
