    Last night’s fight’s were pretty good. Sonnen lost it when he could’ve just stood up and let the 2nd round end. Filho took a good beating to defend his Title. There is deffinatly room for him to improve. Right now, I’d say Anderson would whoop his arse if they fought. I also wonder how Paulo would do against Matt Lindland?

    I hope the WEC has Brian Stann vs. Doug Marshall next year. Marshall showed he is well rounded and I think Stann is the man who can defeat him. I didn’t like seeing him run into the crowd. It’s not something I cared for.

    Urijah Faber. Man, that kid is tough. Jeff took him into deep waters. He fought through some hard competition and came out with another victory. Job well done by both fighter’s. Looking forward to both of their next bouts.

    Cub Swanson had little to no respect for Jens Pulver. He should’ve kept it standing for at least two minutes after all the smack he was talking. But, he got caught very quickly and paid dearly for it. I’m looking forward to seeing Pulver vs. Faber next year. That will be one hell of a fight. Fireworks baby, it’s going down.

    135er’s…look out for Brian Bowles. That guy is going straight to the top in that division.

    Filho got so lucky it’s not even funny…The ref should have not stepped in during the last 15 seconds of that fight. Sonnen easily could have held on until the next round…that was very dissapointing for me.

    Lil’ Evil is back. FW’s look out, dude can sub. Who’d a thunk it?

    I’m gonna be smiling all weekend.

    Fuck you Cub.

  • Luke says:

    Pulver did not win via anaconda choke. It was a guillotine choke with an anaconda grip. Similar, but different.

  • Dizzle says:

    he started with the anaconda choke but then finished with guillotine.

    stupid mistake from Swanson…Jens came in there with a great game plan.

  • Luke says:

    Ok, right: it was a guillotine choke with an anaconda grip. This is nothing new. He didn’t invent it. It’s not a common way to finish, but works well with the vale tudo gloves in MMA.

    Pulver won via guillotine choke with an anaconda or brabo grip.

  • Jersey Tomato says:

    Let’s just say Jens choked the shit out of Cub until he tapped.

    Swanson talked a lot of crap but , when it came time to put up or shut up, he shot for a takedown like a little bitch. On top of that, he made no attempt to disguise the move so it was easy work for Jens to isolate his neck. I was looking forward to a hard fought match but Jens made it look like child’s play.

    Advice for “So Cal” Swanson: grow a pair. Learn to grapple. Back up your tough talk.
