Already some excellent finishes in the prelims. Looking forward to the main card.

That was a good card, the flying knee KO was the fudge. Anthony Johnson looked like a beast and I can't stand "Mr. Wonderful" so that made it even better. I'm really looking forward to seeing Comier vs. Jones…

And on a side note is anybody else sick of seeing women fight? 99% of the time its going to decision besides a Rousey arm bar, I usually take a leak and refill my beer when the girls are in the ring.

Is Jones the dirtiest fighter, or does somebody else hold that distinction?

agree and agree. Jones put up a hell of a fight (eye-poking notwithstanding). I still think Gustafsson is the the only one who really stands a chance against him, but Cormier definitely deserves a shot.

Johnson's comeback was fantastic. I look forward to his next fight - it would be great to see him face a skilled wrestler such as Cormier or Sonnen.

watching jones annoys me. He has a ton of talent but chooses to fight dirty and is not penalized for it. Constant eye gouges and oblique kicks - disgusting

Geat photo.
Mr. Wonderful probably aint feeling too great today. Looking past AJ seemed really disrespectful and he paid the price BIG time, which was good because I always felt he was way too overrated. #4 ? Come on...

As for the Beal flying knee, does this photo explain it?

Couldn't agree more, but, like fence grabbing, until the letter of the law is applied, fighters are going to carry on. Jones, because of his super long arms, is able to hold his opponent, literally, at 'arms length', but has to have his hand open in order to hold the head. Murgliato seemed confused as to how to "diagnose" what Jones was doing and with the exception of the verbal warning, did nothing. A grey area that, like those oblique kicks,which I also hate, should be addressed. But your photos are pretty damning...

Who was warned twice about fence grabbing this weekend? No point deductions for that, which translates to 3 grabs might get you a point deduction...3 grabs!

Prediction: Jones gets "hurt" and pulls out of that fight before it even happens.
