Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir
Winner Lesner TKO 2nd round.

My Notes:

Mir shows some pretty good striking, but off balanced himself in the process- probably shouldn't have gone the counter-punching route. Not that it really matters against someone walking around at 290 pounds, but still. Lesnar did the appropriate thing: Sit on the guy, make sure you don't get submitted, and just pound at the guy's face. Dickchest still forgets that he's no longer in the WWE and needs some PR lessons goddammit, he's frustrating to watch.

Henderson made Bisping look like a week-old corpse with that shot: http://img21.imageshack.us/img21/2340/1247367977823.gif
Holy hell that was awesome. Then he dropped what looked like the Rock's "The People's Elbow" right afterwards, which is also awesome. Bisping was circling to the wrong side most of the fight, which ultimately led to that brilliant KO.

GSP showed pure grappling dominance- 10 takedowns against a guy that was apparantly stronger and harder to take down than any of St. Pierre's previous opponents. Also, his reach made for a good equalizer on the stand-up. "Hit him with your groin!"

The takedowns definitely gave Akiyama the win (Judo FTW). Belcher was not really robbed, although it was damn close, and I thought Belcher had the better stand up.

Bonnar, what the fuck is wrong with you? As much as I hate to say it, but being beaten by Coleman alone deserves being cut.

Good job by Fitch, Jones, and Miller. The Kim fight turned out as expected. And holy hell, a good night for guillotines.

GSP was all over Thiago. Gotta give it to Thiago...hes a tough competitor and has great sportsmanship. GSP is uncanny.

Bisping got knocked the fuck out! and that elbow was naaasty.

Brock abused Mir's face. Sable looked HOT last night

Sable's what, 40? Damn.

I think I'll go with the UFC ring girls in terms of hotness, though.

You could say that Lesnar has unleashed his fury and relentlessly attacked Mir. Well, who can blame him? Mir was the one who handed him his first defeat in the UFC. In that match, he was finally able to extract his revenge.
