It was a great night, I watched at my buddies and he has a mini movie theater complete with posters and a popcorn machine. Also another one of our friend's knows some Red Bull girls and two came by and gave us free Red Bull and that new cola they have has a horrible after taste. But great night had by all.

Gotta love MMA.
Rashad's crumpled up corpse.
im looking forward to ufc 100 definitely. i wish they would start the broad cast earlier because theirs quite a few fights on the under card i would want to see, that likely wont be broad casted...
pretty good card IMO. machida made rashad look even worse than i thought he would. edgar's got some skills - sherk is done. the days of one dimensional fighters are over. just ask royce. i love watching mcfedries fight - that ko power is ridiculous. too bad he has zero ground game.
what do we think about the next card? i'll predict franklin ko's silva - velasquez murders kongo - swick ko's saunders - davis ko's hardy - fisher over uno - taylor over sobotta - and kelly ko's delgado. who cares about the other fights.
i like this next card for two big reasons. one is the brawl potential. although these might not be the biggest names (anymore at least), all these matchups favor two guys standing and throwing. if i wanted to watch wrestling, i'd watch wrestling. gonna see some nice knockouts. the other reason is velasquez. all the mma insiders are saying he's the next big thing. i haven't seen him fight enough yet to say one way or another, but i can't wait to see this one. good stuff.
I agree with your picks for the next card Bob, except i'm taking Ben Saunders over Mike Swick. Kinda don't like the main event cause i'm a big fan of both fighters, hate when that happens. But should be a good matchup.
Some other good MMA events are coming up as well, StrikeForce June 6th with Robbie Lawler vs Jake Shields headlining, also Nick Diaz vs Scott Smith, and June 7th WEC, Urijah Faber vs Mike Brown for the featherweight belt.
I'm looking forward to 100. I'm kind of surprised 99 is pay per view. While I'm excited about the Franklin vs. Silva fight because it should be full of fireworks, neither fighter is a real factor at 205 or 185. And, the UFC is in a bit of a strange spot. If Silva wins - as they hope, I'm sure - they could eventually have a Silva vs. Silva fight at 185. If Franklin wins, it just means he can beat another fighter not named Anderson.
can't wait for the brown/faber fight. faber bugs the **** out of me and i would very much like to see him get used again. would like to see smith knock out diaz as well - not a fan of his. i wouldn't mind seeing a diaz/lawler rematch.
