The UFC champ versus the Pride champ. This will be awesome. The only other Pride fighter I’d love to see in a UFC bout is Fedor Emelianenko.
Well, maybe there are a few more, but damn Wanderlei Silva in a UFC fight?
I’m surprised that Dana allowed him to wear his Pride shirt at the announcement. Since they are “competing” MMA franchises and all.
Also, The Ortiz/Shamrock fight was stopped a little bit early for my taste (by 10 seconds or so, but still, a ton of people were pissed, as Dana mentioned). Tito is still an asshole. I won $10 on that fight, but I was pulling for Shamrock. I think Shamrock was robbed. I understand why Herb called it, but it was the first round, there was a lot more fighting to be had.
The Silvia/Arlovski fight was a huge disappointment. It should never have gone that long, there was no ground work, and it was relatively boring. Apart from a couple dozen leg kicks, it was a boxing match. A boring boxing match.
Frank Mir looked like crap, so did Dan Cristison, a weak victory no matter which way it went.
Bad fight night overall, except for the announcement. Any thought on Liddell V. Babalu?
