    Being "in the Arena" isn't all it's cracked up to be. Especially if the fight goes to the Ground. ;)

    I was there live for the event. Close to halfway thru the 5th rd, about 1/5 the crowd started to leave. When Silva pulled off the submission, the crowd came running back in. Epic moment.

    Rory/Lawler, since that whole card was amazing and had Mendes/McGregor, as well. The shock of Silva-Sonnen 1 must have been something special, but the bad guy won in the end. Well, Sonnen is not a good guy, but I think most wanted to see Silva get his comeuppance for his antics against Maia. When I've re-watched that fight, I just turn it off in the 5th round.
