Older events people would be hyped up for just about every fight and be cheering non-stop, now people will get excited once or twice in a 15/25 minute fight. More interesting to watch pre-lims inbetween main card fights.
Then watch K-1 or the old PRIDE videos; Dana specifically stated his interest in the UFC being an "NFL" for wrestlers.

I agree with all this, except the part of it's losing it's appeal. 114 was pretty lame. Starting with the amiir-sadlooah prelim where the korean dude just layed on him for 3 rounds. When it's two capable dudes it's ok, but when you get a guy whose capable of giving you an exciting fight(sadollah) then match him with a wrestler who just lays and does no damage, it's frustrating as a fan. There's been a bunch of poetentially highly entertaining fights ruined by dudes just laying on the other one recently, koscheck daley comes to mind.

I think they should lessen the points given for takedowns. They should give points based on the opponents reaction. If the opponent gets right up vs if the opponent gets ground n pounded for a min or two.

It would lose it's appeal but usually once a show there's something cool happens. Like the fat guy knockout of duffee.

and jason brillz got robbed. I'd call their ground battles even, slight edge to brillz, but considering how many times brillz took him down...all that time spent on the ground was cause brillz brought nog down there. I didn't see any significant punches landed by NOg, and saw at least two hard shots by brillz. No idea how nog got the descision....unless it's fixed.

Rampage rashad was dissapointing but you just have to go "o well". Rampage was rusty and not as in shape as he could have been. I imagine it'll go Rashad Shogun, and Rampage Lyoto. I can't think of any other 205 in the mix..till A. Silva gets there. Glad herb dean didn't let rashad just hold him up against the cage the whole fight.

I got featured on Insider Moves on Inside Xbox this week

im not mad or anything, but i hear this all the god damn time.

YOU DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO TO WIN!!!!!!!!

if i fought MMA i wouldnt give a f..k about how i look, i would do whatever i have to do get the W and thats all.

ex: you didn't see GSP stand with Alves, thats 'cause he was gonna loose, so he wrestled his way to victory.

Rampage could have won that if he just would have kept going head on after that flurry of strikes he laid down. He just let Rashad recover and laid back like an idiot. His corner was telling at him to go in the whole time and he did not listen.

I was f.cking pissed that Duffee lost. How the hell does a guy that ripped and that looks like he's been training all his life lose to a fatass? lol..

Pretty boring show. :/

Rampage missed the finisher. Got that huge hit and as soon as Rashad hit the ground Rampage had a HUGE blow coming and he hit the ground next to his head and it threw him off a little. Shit was over if he would have connected an easy hit.

Oh and when fatass knocked duffee down did anyone else lol at the little babysmash he hit duffee's face with? Me and some friends rewound it like 50 times just dying laughing.
