Hell naw, I would probably spend money on a Rousey PPV before Mighty Mouse and thats pretty bad. He basically hops around for 5 rounds throwing pitter patter that wouldn't pop a balloon and get cheap take downs for laying and vatican level praying then the fight ends with both guys barely sweating and Mighty Mouse wins just based on cheap activity.

You're Canadian and delusional when it comes to Rory. It's understandable that you enjoyed such a dominant win but don't try to make the argument that it was an exciting fight.

I hate to agree with you, I'm usually right into the fights, I was looking around the bar not even paying attention. I don't know what it is, he's finished fights, maybe it's because he is so well conditioned and they just can't match him. And once it's in the 3rd round I pretty much know what is going to happen. I just don't get fired up to see him fight. I was fired up to see the russian fight and once I saw he was going to lose I lost interest. I can't put my finger on it.

Two wrongs don't make a right bro, you used one mistake to distract you from another.

UFC 53 - Arlovski vs Eilers - 2005
UFC 89 - Bisping vs Leben - 2008
UFC 95 - Sanchez vs Stevenson - 2009
UFC 105 - Couture vs Vera - 2009
UFC 109 - Couture vs Coleman - 2010

Just a few examples, plenty more to go on
Lol, you tried to make a point but UFC 89,95, and 105 were all free!

And UFC 109 had Chael vs. Marquardt (Chael's next fight was against Silva), Thiago vs. Swick, and Maia vs. Miller (Maia's next fight was for the mw belt as well), along with a fun main event for wrestling and older mma fans, not to mention Randy nuthuggers, for which there were many.

UFC 53 was in 2005, and nobody has ever said that was a great card. The difference is that the UFC has since swallowed Pride, Strikeforce, and the WEC.

I still don't pay $50-$60 flat out, more like pitch in with friends.
If you were willing to pay for GSP, you should be willing to pay for MM. Not much of a difference between the 2 outside of GSP being bigger.


DJ being a main event is not a reason to avoid a card but the card being garbage (which it was) is.
