    Kind of late but what the heck. Just wanted to see if you guys watched UFC Fight Night on Versus this passed Sunday and see what you thought. :D

    Found out Amir has a lot of work to do. I was completely puzzeled by his game plan and his shots were slow and sloppy.

    Donald Cerrone looked awesome! that uppercut to the sternum had me cringing on my couch. That guy is scary. :eek:

    I was surprised by how easily Bendo really just dominated Jim Miller. I really think he may be champion by next year.

    Even though Jim Miller lost, i was very impressed by his jiu jitsu especially in the first round. He has a very active guard and i think that knee bar would have submitted most other fighters besides Henderson.

    Last was the Hardy v. Lytle fight. Lytles hand looked good and man was that fight exciting. I was expecting Hardy to knock Lytle out but man was i wrong. :eek: He out struck hardy handily and finished his carreer with an exciting fight and submission win. He got fight of the night bonuses and submission of the night bonuses. Im pretty sad i wont get to see him fight anymore. :(

    What did you guys think?

    I don't think Bendo EASILY defeated Miller, I think he won handily but he worked HARD to do it.

    Also, Lytle was rocked a couple of times, fight could have went either way but I did have Lytle winning all rounds.

    Great card! Can't wait for RIO (Except i'll be in Vegas so I likely won't see it :( hopefully I can catch anderson/okami)

    I dont think he "easily" beat him either. Im not bashing on Miller. I love Miller, he always brings it and he worked hard off of his back. I just wasnt expecting such a dominant performance. It makes me real excited to see Bendo fight in the future.

    Lytle got tagged a few times but over all Lytle won the striking. I was kind of confused about Hardy's game plan. He wasn't using kicks and i cant for the life of me figure out why he would shoot on Lytle. Ive kinda thought this for a while but i just think Hardy is overrated. His standup is just ok not the best in the division and his grappling needs alot of work. Thats not to say he isnt a warrior and a fun fighter to watch though.

    Im psyched for Rio too!! I cant wait to see if Okami can pull it off. How do you see this fight going?

    pfff how do I see the fight going? AS kicking the shit out of Okami. And i'm not really a big AS fan, his personality bothers me, but can he kick some ass.

    im kinda thinking the same. I really cant stand anderson but I have a feeling hes.going to win in devestaing fashion. I would.love to see okami push forward and beat him but I see those chances being slim.
    Im more looking forward to Forest v. Shogun on that card personally. Should be an interesting fight. Im kinda leaning towards Forest.
    Fox and UFC, kind of a weird combo.
