    I just tried about a dozen websites that offered round by round coverage of UFC 90. They are all awful, incomplete, not updated, only fiveouncesofpain website is decent. Thanks.

  • Staff says:

    Sherk vs. Griffin up now.

    I am picking T. Griffin.

  • metalwheelz66691978 says:

    wheres the live chat?

  • eric says:

    has the Sherk fight started yet?

  • KTru says:

    Drew and Thales?
    because most fight went distance?

  • JollyDV says:

    What a fight!!!

  • Drew says:

    Drew and Thales get cancelled or will it air after the main?

  • David Andrest says:

    Wow, awsome fight. I’m not a sherk or tyson guy but damn that was a nice fight.

  • JollyDV says:

    Well, I scored that wrong I guess. I didn’t see it as one sided as the judges did and Cecil isn’t even there.

  • JollyDV says:

    I really don’t think the fights will be canceled. I would guess they will fight live after the main event? I am sure someone can answer that better.

    Werdum vs. Santos up now.

  • KTru says:

    Werdrum…hahaha…I knew he was over-rated

  • Adam Morgan says:

    The Leites/McFedries fight was a prelim fight. And yes, if there’s time I assume we’ll see it as it was quick. And wow, Werdum just got raped.

  • matt says:

    i think rich is gonna beay maynard but i dont care, koscheck will just have to avoid the knees use his speed slam him down mount and its over and i see either decision for cote or a complete destruction by silva it could go both ways

  • KTru says:

    Rogan is gonna fight the Ref..lol

  • David Andrest says:

    That Ref was just terrible.

  • JollyDV says:

    I really thought Rich would do more. Gray just had more.. he controlled the whole fight.

  • David Andrest says:

    worst crowd ever??? Jesus have they seen anything they like tonight?

  • Johnny Awesome says:

    Gray made Clementi look like what he really is, a joke. I like Gray and all, but he is insanely boring and isn’t what MMA needs to get over.

  • JollyDV says:

    The crowd wasn’t very nice either.

  • deano says:

    I noticed that odds makers have Josh Koshcheck a very slight favorite so I expect a competitive fight shifting back and forth.

    The Anderson Silva Cote fight is not to even be close according to oddsmakers. Silva an overwhelming favorite but a lot must have to do with him not being defeated in so many years. These MMA fighters are a punch away from being put away so it makes it interesting despite lopsided odds.

    JollyDV, are you the site admin? If so, I like the way you set up this place. I only stumbled upon it after googling “UFC 90 live round by round” and eventually found this site. I’ll be back. I refuse to pay the fees to see it live. It comes on Spike TV for free, eventually. Anyway, enjoy the remaining fights.

  • Johnny Awesome says:

    I would never boo or anything at an event like this, as it is not easy to do what these guys do. However, I can see why they are angry since they paid for their rickets expecting action.

  • JollyDV says:

    lol..I guess that this is what is meant by a “tough crowd”.

    They are pretty loud with the booing. And it seems to be extended booing. lol.

  • Johnny Awesome says:

    So who do you guys like in the Koschek vs Alves fight? I got Kos by UD

  • cerby25 says:

    Thanks for doing this Jolly!

  • Boost says:

    Is the next fight on yet?

  • Boost says:

    Who do you like between Josh Koscheck and Thiago Alves?

  • eric says:

    who’s winning?

  • KTru says:

    Kos left leg is gonna be hurting in the morning!!!!

    Great performance by Alves, great heart by Kos

  • JollyDV says:

    Deano- No I am not. That would be David Andrest who posted just before you. I do agree with you, this is a great site. Please be sure and check back here anytime.

    My legs hurt from just watching that!!

  • David Andrest says:

    great fight. josh ” chin of stone” Koscheck put in a good showing.

  • KTru says:

    If you lost anything…….check Rogan’s beard first!!!!

  • JollyDV says:

    He sure did. I have never been a “fan” of Kos, but he really impressed me tonight. He was rocked several times and just kept going. I look forward to seeing him in Dec.

    I wonder what the lack of fear by Cote will look like??

    Anyone want to guess how many seconds this fight takes???

  • cerby25 says:

  • Patrick says:

  • David Andrest says:

    Herb called it when he saw the knee come out the side.

  • dave woodruff says:

    that sux….thanks for the info

  • betty boop says:

    who was winning?

  • David Andrest says:

    it was a bad deal all around, he just kinda stepped on it and it came apart. he and Anderson were 5 feet apart at the time.

  • damon says:

    i miss the live chat during ppv’s

  • damon says:

    i miss the live chat during ppv’s

  • mg says:

    no offense jp, but the fighters want to put on a good show, but ultimately, it comes down to getting a win, the want to entertain, but it doesn’t always happen.

  • 5percentbodyfat says:

    Entrance Songs:
    Cote- Same song as TNT Basketball from last season I think maybe Linkin Park
    Silva- Ain’t no sunshine.

    I am sooooo mad right now. I can careless about how the fight turned out, I mean really shit happens people. Should the UFC offer maybe a $20 Tap Out gift certificate to viewers sure, but nothing, I mean nothing gives people the reason to act like they did tonight. Booing a guy who’s on one leg right now, actually fought Anderson Silva who I actually think with a leg kick somewhere caused the blown out knee, but still to boo… boo during an Anderson Silva fight, you’re watching a modern day legend and you’re going to boo. That’s like going to see (insert basketball player here) play and booing because he’s not dropping 30.

    Its a show, its entertainment.

    The other big disappointment for me was the Ref. Could we please remove this dude, shouting “Come on now fight” every other second. I even recognized it before Joe pointed it out. These ppl are concentrating in a clinch, focus, sure its not action but its still a freaking fight. They’re producing the action when jabbing away and now that they choose to wrestle you don’t think that’s fighting? Come on now.

  • damon says:

    rice football has a new chat format for their games, i know its not mma but i think you shound maybe look into the software. I love the site but think that this could help out on fight nights. So what happened in the silva fight???

  • KTru says:

    Cote blew out either ACL or MCL. Looked like he was favoring that leg in the 2nd round. Silva was winning, but Cote was not backing down.

    I hope that UFC does not come back to Chicago.

  • damon says:

    inside leg kick landed??? was an acl blown someone please help verbalize it for me.

  • David Andrest says:

    We’ll continue to work on the PBP format, and improve upon it for the visitors.

  • JollyDV says:

    Sorry for the late post, my PC disconnected when I posted the 2nd round. I had to go back and retype it all.

  • egad81 says:

    That main event was a joke. Why did Silva toy with him?
    LEGENDS FINISH FIGHTS!

  • mg says:

    5percent’s right, people should be honored to have the chance to see a legend do what he loves, and possibly see the next great fighters in the pre-lims, why would you boo when you see a great fighter and a fighter wanting to give all he got, and then get injured. some people take everything for granted.

  • KTru says:

    Cote was setting up kick when it popped. He tried to walk it off, but Herb Dean knew he was done. Crowd booed everything else, so this was the proverbial cherry on top.

  • David Andrest says:

    They boo’d sherk and Griffin. On paper that sounds about right. But they both really put out tonight, GREAT FIGHT covered in boo’s

  • damon says:

    i got home late from a football game what is with everyone dissing the crowd? i am sorry for the questions just want to know and didnt want to pay for ppv at 10:55 ct.

  • aizlynn says:

    5percentbodyfat,

    i totally agree! you took the words right out of my mouth! Well said

  • mg says:

    this is the best website, this is the first site i go to if i want to know anything about mma

  • Mashes says:

    I’m from NY and I love Chicago but these fucking loser fans really disappointed me tonight.

    Over all who do think was going to win in the Silva v Cote fight?

  • aizlynn says:

    the way i look at it..these men are actually risking their lives to do this..and they do a damn good job.. i dont agree with booing any of these men.. you want to boo take it to the wwe.. either that or grow the balls and get down there and fight them yourselves because i doubt youd boo when you get your ass kicked

    also, thank you fiveouncesofpain.com for the great updates!

  • Mashes says:

    Yeah you should never boo a real athlete. An athletes confidence should be as as their physical condition. It’s cheap and tacky, be a good audience and don’t be a tool.

    So who do you guys think the Belt would have gone to if the Cote didn’t blow out his knee?

  • rick says:

    what yall expect chicago is full of as%%%%%%. I dont think couture will be able to handle a beast like lesnar.I didnt hear much about my boy hermes franca how his fight look im a big hermes fan

  • skwirrl says:

    Well I think that settles the Anderson is indisputably #1 PfP talk… he needed Cote to injure himself to put him away.

    War Fedor #1 PfP

    sqwirl apparently you havent seen much mma anderson silva could have lightheavyweight belt if he wanted it he is by far tha most well rounded fighter in mma right now

    I think Anderson came out to Ain’t no sunshine in tribute to his Aunt that died recently. She was more like a mother to him, and i think that it was all in her memory. Other than that, I personally gave the first round to Cote for octogon control and aggressiveness. Silva didn’t impress me for one second in the first round. Finally he decided to do something in the second round, but almost looked like he was TRYING to get Cote into the third round and beyond. I mean, feeling out a power puncher is one thing, but Anderson didn’t even do that with James Irvin and I’d be more afraid of a 205 puncher than a 185er.

    After the second round was over it was pretty much clear that Anderson would win the fight, it was just a matter of when where and how brutal. I feel bad for Patrick and hope he recieves a rematch before Silva retires in June. Even though it was a loss, I don’t feel this knocks Cote down the ladder at all. I don’t really think he deserved the fight in the first place, but I don’t think this worsens his situation.

    From the Griffin/Sherk fight
    “This was a super exciting fight. It is difficult to score but I score it SD in favor of Griffin.”

    How does a single person score a fight split decision???

  • JollyDV says:

    Matt, good point. I messed up there.

    I had two rounds for Griffin and one for Sherk. I also thought the fight was so close and difficult to score. My thought was that the official judges would score the fight as a SD and I did not express myself correctly. I apologize for the mistake and thanks for pointing it out.

  • Cite says:

    They need to fire the Referee Todd Frederickson. Maynard and Clementia was showing good ground game and that idiot keeps telling them lets go. It was very annoying. It’s obvious he knows nothing about MMA

  • HexRei says:

    Jolly, that is what I assumed you meant. It’s not the first time I’ve seen someone call someone else out for predicting a split decision. For those that are aware of the judges and the way fights are scored, and being someone who is interested in predicting the actual outcome of the fight, as opposed to simply giving their opinion of who won, it makes perfect sense to predict a SD in some cases- it simply means you think the fight was close enough that the judges would disagree with each other. I’ve done it myself.

    That is really not a sure thing at all. One of Silva’s big advantages right now is how big he is compared to most of his opponents- he cuts a lot of weight and has a significant reach advantage over most guys he fights. Other than Irvin and Hendo he really hasn’t faced any guys that are truly his size and I think he’d have a tough time with some of the top LHW’s. Certainly it’s not a given that he could take that belt “if he wanted it”.
