    Thanks for the warning. I took the RPM at 5ish, think I'll be good to have a couple drinks by 10ish?

    understood, I think Wandy should take it, but Chuck's counterpunching could be rough for him.

    Yeah, but just remember that that the metabolization is delayed and has a cumulative effect. So 4 drinks may hit you like 6-7. I am going to drink a pint of water after every 4-5 drinks just as a precaution.

    What an awesome night of fights. One of the UFC's best cards, if only for the last two fights.

    Souk/Machida:

    This transitional period is definitely the trend. I think that expectations of the 'African Assasin' were fairly similar to those put on Houston Alexander (ala Rogue). Both were very large, explosive, and powerful strikers, who were able to ride explosive striking for two victories, but not for a third.

    Silva/Liddell:

    This fight was amazing, IMO. All that I expected. Silva took many of Chuck's looping power shots and countered nicely. I didn't think that Chuck won 30-27 as one judge scored it, as I thought Silva effectively cut off the angles in the second well, and was countering nicely.

    GSP/Hughes:

    Wow. I honestly did not think GSP would dominate Hughes so severely. Not much to say there. Hughes, I thought, showed a lot of class though.

    I think the only question which remains, is how will jas and CNorris cope with no longer being Matt Hughes fan boys? Here's to you two:

    Its fitting that the national symbol of Canada is a leaf.

    A fragile weak little leaf that will fall, shrivel up and blow away in the wind.

    I think pride fanboys will commit a mass suicide tonight since I think its settled, the skill of Pride fighters was over rated.

    GSP is clearly head and shoulders above anyone at 170, but he is still a giant ****ing douche.

    Souk/Machida:

    I like Machida’s fighting style. I think that he’s going to be around a while and should get a title shot

    Silva/Liddell:

    I expected more from Silva. I thought that he laying back waiting for an opening that never came and ended up taking to many shots. I still think he’s a great fighter, just not his night

    GSP/Hughes:

    GSP simply kicked Hughes but tonight.

    You like Machida's fighting style?

    He is a very boring fighter to watch IMO. He will be around for a long time, and thats not a good thing.

    It was a great night of fights. I loved the Wandy-Chuck fight. It lived up to all the hype. Great trading, but I wish Wandy would have won. I saw it 29-28 as well.

    Slick sub by St. Pierre. I don't see anyone beating him on the ground or outwrestling him.

    Machida really dominated. Where were those amazing leg kicks from Sok? He looked out of it halfway through the first. Maybe Sok isn't mentally tough or maybe Machida is just the man.

    Nice fight for Clementi.

    Palelei-Sanchez was just a dumb fight to televise so I'm not surprised it blew, but the rest of the fights easily made up for it.

    I did terrible in the contest. The only fights I got right were when I picked against my favs

    I'll give you that. But he wins and I like how he stays in control and picks his shots.

    I think Silva was worried about getting caught coming in so he waited until Chuck came after him. Most of the times that I've seen him get dropped was when he rushed in to trade.

    I am glad Chuck won since a loss for him would have meant he might not be around much longer. Chuck is just too fun to watch and I didn't want to see him retire.

    seeing Melvin lose and Rich totally own him in every aspect possible was so great.

    Hughes should retire and pass the torch on to GSP. Its too bad GSP has to be such a douche tough. I guess that comes with the territory of having French blood.

    I'm disappointed that Wand doesn't use his knees anymore. It looked like he had some opportunities to clinch. Chuck also looked much bigger than Wand.

    Hughes got spanked up and I fail to see how GSP acted like a douche. The guy is a class act all the way and one of the best pound for pound fighters in the sport. I also noticed the size advantage that Liddell had over Silva. I'll give Silva credit though, he hung in there after taking some massive punishment.

    GSP is a class act. Eveyone saying he is a douche doesn't know what the **** your talking about. You guys just can't stand to see a canadian win. Now Serra that's a douche.

    First, wow great card top to bottom.

    GSP is unreal. I feel for Serra when they meet. Once he gets the title back I dont know who will take it from him

    Hell of a job by Liddell and Silva. As good as expected. Liddell fought a smart fight, and did enough to win, but 30-27?

    Machida/Sak, Machida is impressive. He might not excite, but he goes out to win. I think we need to see Machida/Jardine with the winner getting the Forrest/Page winner. I really like Machida and think he could hold the belt before the year is out.

    Damn, what is the whole pride flopping thing. Not that Silva flopped, but he lost convincingly. I guess that means that Fedor loses to jake McDonald or Frank Mir. Crazy. Next thing is Big Tim KO'ing Nog

    He's not a douche, I thought that was a classy move at the end with the belt. CNorris just cannot handle that his cornbread country boy is a bush-league fighter compared to GSP.

    I don't see how you can say GSP is a douche, especially if you're a Hughes fan. And Machida has my favorite style to watch in the UFC right now. Educated fans appriciate it.

    For sure. It's incredibly technical and maybe the most strategic LHW. However, for me at least, appreciation and entertainment at times do not mix.

    Yeah, Chuck would lose. That's what I like about it. But Machida would probably be extra cautious...

    I really wanna see MAchida fight Jardine or Thiago Silva for #1 contender. I think Machida v. Page would be fairly entertaining as Page would get frustrated by him

    Machida is getting alittle to much respect, chuck would be a good match up, but i dont see how anybody would say that liddell would simply lose.

    well Im not saying that machida shouldnt get any respect, but it was obvious that souk was very overated and looked completely clueless on what to do on his back or even prevent being taken down, he looked real slow for a LHW.

    My quick thoughts:

    Machida should w/o a doubt fight for the title.

    Liddell did the smartest thing I have ever seen him do in a fight by taking Silva down twice in the final round to secure himself a victory.

    GSP is unbelievable how good he is.

    Heavyweights continue to be a boring weight class. They should show more 155 fights in place of the boring big guys.

    I agree about the HW's. I can see Nog/Tim being a bore fest.
