I was jumping up and down screaming at the end of that first round, so close, man would that of been a perfect ending to an amazing career. I loved Hendo's comment in the post fight interview, "too bad they don't judge the fight on how we look afterwards".

Serious if I looked like bisbing after a street fight and the other guy looked like hendo, Id say I got my ass beat, honestly I think it was 2 rounds a piece goin to the last round and that small skirmish at the end gave it to bisbing where he got a good knee and some ground shots in

I'm glad the count is still champ, he's got a murders row of contenders behind him. Can't wait to see him keep going. This division is naaasty.

Yeah, he's got some amount of heart. He took that punch at 100 and the night ended. He took two this time and recovered. I scored it for the Count, 3-2 sounds about right. When you think about it, in his last 3 fights he's beaten the best ever, avenged Luke Cockhold and then avenged his biggest loss against a hall of famer. He's got bigger testicles than anybody in the sport.

MMA aint a beauty pageant, or Nick n Nate would be like 0-30

I can't stand Bisping. He's a bigger douche than Connor. Don't forget Hendo was under 40 when that last punch landed.

Yet Bisping is a lesser douche than Rockhold.

Yep. That doesn't just go away.

Does UFC always do events in other countries in weird local times for them and convenient times for the US?

Previously no, this time to justify the ppv and decent card. Certainly first time to happen in the UK. Think they may have done it inthe Asian shows

For PPVs I believe they always do. The majority of the PPVs that are in other countries usually are in the western hemisphere so the time change isnt too huge and doesnt matter. Most of the time when they are in Eastern Hemisphere countries they arent PPVs and are fight night/Fight Pass type cards that they dont shift the start time for.

Example UFC 193 in Melbourne, Main Card started at 2pm there. They shift some Fight Night type cards too, but they would never do a PPV and not shift it to prime time start in the US.

Rousey vs Nunes confirmed for UFC 207 on DEC 30th, pretty sure she's going to get KOed again.

And if she gets KO'd again, she retires afterwards.
