I will make it short and sweet...
These are all my OPINIONS, but can be taken as fact! ;) lol
First, a HUGE congrats to Tim Sylvia! He did great tonight. I am happy to see the underdog win! However, two days ago, Arlovski was going to KILL Tim and was unbeatable, now everyone is jumping off his bandwagon. Why is that? He lost. Big deal. He is still a great fighter. He doesn't suck because Tim beat him. Some of you are eating crow tonight for talking a ton of crap (no pun intended) about Tim, and deserve it!
Second, Forest got screwed! That decision was a TRAVESTY! For the rest of my life, I will always view that as a win for Forest! When Forest goes back and watches that fight, as classy as he is, even he will be pissed that he got screwed! :(
Third, Pe De Pano won, IMO! Seriously, one judge gave it to Monson 30-27! WTF? Monson did show class afterwards, but I still don't agree with the decision. As for him beating Tim...good luck! ;) Tim will have about an 11 inch height advantage, and punches MUCH harder and more accurate than Pe De Pano. I personally think it would be an interesting matchup though.
Fourth, I am glad to see Diaz lose! Good job Sherk! Sherk is going to be a monster at 155! He is very quick and explosive!
Fifth, it was funny/cool to see Mike Cies trying to duck under the flag when they were introducing Tim! lol
Sixth, I was a little disappointed that I didn't get to see more of Justin Levens skill, as I had heard a lot about him. Oh well. Good job to Tanner though, on applying my favorite submission! :)
Seventh, nice win for Karo, but I was kind of rooting for Nick. Oh well, hopefully Nick will be back. Karo looked tough, and I have a feeling will be back in the hunt for the title very soon. IMO, he needs to work a lot more on his standup, and he will have a much more realistic shot.
Finally, a good UFC overall, but I am really looking forward to the next one! My heart is torn. Matt-who is on Team MFS, and actually shared the same hotel room with me for my one and only pro fight? Or, Royce-who brought me into this sport 13 years ago, and have idolized since then? Flip a coin, I guess... lol
