UFC 78 Validation (spoiler)

All in all not a bad fight night. The energy was definitely subpar given the non-title fights but there were a bunch of Ultimate Fighter show guys that I was pleased to see fighting.

I could not believe how easily Houston Alexander was beat down by Thiago Sylva. That guy is TOUGH to say the least.

I was glad to see Michael Bisping finally catch a loss as I dont think he is all that good. Id like to see him drop down to 185 where I think he would be much more formidable. Rashad Evans controlled the fight but that was about it. He seemed to off a bit that night and may have been less than prepared cardio-wise.

And who was that troll from Decatur, IL? That guy was ridiculous.

To be honest, I wasn't too impressed with the whole fight card. I mean c'mon, Bisping and Evans as your main event? I believe most if not all the fights went to a decision did they not? Not impressed, can't wait for the next one though, Chuck Liddell and Wanderlei Silva should be fun to watch.

I thought it should have been half price given the non-title fights.

probably the worst card in the last year. Rashad and bisping fight was boring. Alexander got wooped. Not a great night at all. Next card will be better.

I didn't see the card but have heard numerous opinions on mma forums. C'mon evans bisping as the headliner As far as HA goes they need to pair him up with another striker say the winner of the Chuck Wandy fight.

The fight I am looking forward to the most is the WEC event on December 12 on Versus. Faber vs Curran and also Jens "lil evil" Pulver is making his wec debut that night as well. WAR CURRAN

+1. Did you see the Elite XC fight with Nick Diaz and KJ Noons? Gheyed out, they shoulda let them continue.

This was a fight that should have been on Spike TV UFC Fight Night Live. Its obvious that they don't have enough depth in either weight class in the UFC and this last card showed that.
