I said it elsewhere but Urijah was very classy in defeat. He's a good guy. Barao looked incredible.

Frank Mir didn't look great but i think he should get another shot. I think going the distance earned it.

Aldo looked great imo even if some think he's boring.

The Able VS Varner fight was fun and the Lee VS Raging Al fight was fun.

The rest was blah and this card broke the record for the most decisions.

People can't expect every card to be good. The UFC has events like this every now and then.

After tonight, Barao is the best fighter under 155 in my eyes.

After a stinker event like that I wouldn't waste I min on the presser that's for sure.

he went the distance due to overeem not really going for the finish imo. he looked hopeless out there. with that said who should he fight?

im upset with the stoppage only based on the fact that some people will take away from renan's victory by saying it was early. even if the ref gave urijah more time, i'm pretty confident that barao had that fight in the bag and would of got the finish anyway.

would of liked to see faber unconscious completely, but hey, i'm actually surprised that faber was so classy in defeat, props to that.

Definitely. Bárâö looked fantastic. Too bad Herb Dean ruined it.

Really wish Faber would have gotten a chance to recover. Yes he was hurt but he was holding on to a leg and Barao wasn't really putting devastating GNP on him. What's done is done though, Barao is a beast. Is it true that he's going up to 145 when Aldo goes to 155? That would be pretty interesting. Hopefully he gets to fight Cruz before moving up
