    I am not on a computer to make the change, but the A. Silva win was in round 2.

  • Eric says:

    Don’t know why you’re excited about Lesnar/Coleman, it’s not different than Hughes/Gracie to give a guy a win that looks more impressive than it is.

    Coleman has no business in the UFC. Hasn’t Dana been bashing Fedor by saying he, “beat some 40 year old?” It’s bad enough Fedor has beaten the UFC champ twice, why not go ahead and sign Hong Man Choi and complete the mockery of his stupid comments?

  • blah says:

    this is such a waste of a fight for lesnar. he is going to pound coleman into the ground and he won’t learn anything or gain any new skills doing it.

    i really believe he could beat silvia and i would love for that fight to happen.

  • Sam Cupitt says:

    I’m sorry but this is perfect matchmaking by the UFC.

    Brock Lesnar gets the chance to show off his skill set against a guy with name recognition. The fact Coleman has just been inducted into the UFC hall of fame immediately gives off the impression that he has great skills and thus to the majority of fans this doesn’t seem like Lesnar is getting an easy beat.

    This fight is the best way to show off what Brock Lesnar is best at without the substantial risk of him losing. This is much better than Lesnar vs. McCully because of Coleman’s name recognition.

    This fight will bring in a shitload.

  • t mckim says:

    for the price we the fans pay you should show all the fights on the card !!

  • This was an okay card overall. Most of the matches were only moderate, but main event was exceptional, adn the only prelim that was aired, was also exciting. The card is the worst UFC event so far this year, but the main event is the fight of the year so far.

    5 stars for Anderson Silva vs. Dan Henderson
    3 stars for Cheick Kongo vs. Heath Herring
    3 stars for Chris Leben vs. Alessio Sakara
    3 stars for Yushin Okami vs. Evan Tanner
    3 stars for Jon Fitch vs. Chris Wilson
    4 stars for Josh Koscheck vs. Justin Hazelett

    Events and fights are rated from 1-5 stars based on:
    – action and excitement

    LOL at Dana for resigning a legend and Hall of Famer just to feed him to Lesnar.

  • What do you think the results of Silva/Henderson can say about a hypothetical match between Silva/Lindland, if anything?

    What do you think are the chances of Silva/Henderson as fight of the year? I know its early in the year, but this fight was exciting and showed good technique. Also, most fights don’t have the potential to be as relevant.

  • screwface says:

    you people who think its funny coleman is fighting lesnar , have no clue. coleman is still a great fighter. age means nothing in mma. coleman gave fedor the closest run for his money out of all the pride fighters. im not saying he almost beat fedor, im just saying he held his own. but any1 who actually watched pride knows who coleman is and what he actually can do. no doubt in my mind he will dominate lesnar easily. im sorry mir is sorta washed up and he beat lesnar in 1st round. coleman is 3 times the fighter mir is.

  • Evan says:

    “LOL at Dana for resigning a legend and Hall of Famer just to feed him to Lesnar.”

    I love it…the UFC can do no right. This guy last fought Fedor and now gets to fight a major UFC name.

    How disrespectful!

  • Nick G says:

    The card was borrrrring. The Fitch/Wilson fight pure and simple “stunk”. He is a lonnnng way from being any title contender. Koschek would destroy him. Hughes would double him all night. A fight with Serra might be interesting ( he’s history after GSP), but that doesn’t mean much. GSP would beat him in every aspect. I’ve seen him fight in the past, but last night was like watching a local show. Maybe he was sick. Maybe his ears strarted to grow again during the fight.

  • Jeff H says:

    Some of you guys are really quick to critic people about some of the most left field things. Some fighters NEED to develop, you can’t shove everyone into the fight of their life every single fight. Granted, the 5% that manage to come out of it uninjured every time will be far better, but the problem is you’re literally wrecking the 95% of the guys you’re paying big money to make better and pull you in more money. Have some of you guys ever actually fought MMA yourselves? No injury heals 100% and every one nags on you, over time the injuries fighters get make them far less of a fighter than they would have been if they got fed up more difficult fighters as they progressed. The UFC is trying to become a legitimate organization now, with a broad fighter base and decent cards all year long, some fights will be easy to call, and some won’t be. More power to Dana for trying to to do this imo.

    Hopefully Brock doesn’t end up tapping again

  • GT says:

    Despite a lot of complaints, I thought it was a great card. First, the main event was great, and although that division doesn’t get a lot of cred, I think it is stronger than people think. Silva, Hendo, Okami, Franklin, Marquardt (7 time king of pancrase–if you don’t recognize the name), Fihlo (another name you should get to know if you don’t–google him), Bisping just cut to 185, Leben could be really strong if he learned to throw straight punches and control is haymakers…he’d be like a 185 version of Chuck Liddell. This is a stronger division that people think…Anderson Silva is just a bad dude. I’m sure the Gracie family cheered like hell when a Greco Roman Olympic wrestler got choked out by a BJJ expert. I thought Herring and Kongo was good too…especially the second round. Herring performed some great transitions and Kongo escaped some close calls. Another strong 170 entered the pack as Chris Wilson gave Fitch a run for his money…and btw, Fitch would eat Koscheck right now. Although, I agree he couldn’t go yard with GSP. Leben put on a banging show. I thought Sakara being a smart boxer would wait out his haymakers and pick him apart. It was awesome. I would have liked to seen a little mroe intensity from Evan Tanner who seemed nervous…but he held his own until a monster clinched knee from Okami. Great fight. my only compaint is Arlovski not being in the main card, not have a contract extension or new contract, and probably not seeing him again in the UFC for some time.
