    I really wish I want at work for this.

    Great stuff from WEC 52…

    Great head kick from Eric Koch for the knockout. Pure muy thai…

    Mendes/Vasquez was an excellent MMA match, with an amazing standing front flip by Mendez over the guard of Vasquez into a scramble on the ground…

    Uriah Faber was ripped to shreds at 135, and totally overpowered an always game Takeya Mizugaki. Ist round RNC for Uriah, who establishes himself as an obvious top contender for the new UFC bantamweight belt…

    I wasn’t sure how Faber would do at a weight class he hasn’t fought MMA at before, but he definitely crushed my doubts. Mizugaki is a pretty tough guy and Faber made it look pretty easy. Hopefully that means he’s back and ready to go.

    Mendes looked really good against a game, but outclassed Vazquez.

    Johnson taking out Page was my upset of the night. I had Page all day long and in the first round I was sitting smug with my scotch, but the 2nd round was completely different. Where the hell did that version of Johnson come from? And why did he take my money? Sneaky little bastard…
    Very nicely done Mr. Johnson. Solid performance against a rough opponent and then you proved that everything about you moves fast in your post-fight interview. Sounded like an auctioneer in there…

    That was a great card. Mendes looked like he’s improved, though he still has a way to go in the way of complementing that wrestling with the rest of the package. Nice front flip. Pretty funny stuff.

    Faber looked really good. He was fast and once he got Mizugaki’s back he wasn’t going to let that neck go. I kind of wanted the ref to stop it a little sooner though because I think Mizugaki was out and still being squeezed on a while long. He recovered quickly though, so it’s all good.

    Joejitsu. I’m officially starting to like Benevidez. The dude is a little beast. I hope the UFC does create a 125lb division so he can dominate that shit. The fly-weight monster.

    Koch reminded me of Carlos Condit with his in cage stare down. He looked hungry and willing to murder. It cracked me up how he instantly changed as soon as the fight was over. I was like…weird…is that the same guy. Well deserved bonus for a nicely place head kick. A little more behind it and it would have knocked Rivera out cold.
