    Abu Dhabi build a arena just for that event.
    It was torn down a week after.

    UFC 112


    The main event was a letdown,
    But to be fair,
    Maia was a late replacement for an injured Vitor Belfort

    Co-Main was a shocker at the time
    BJ was considered as one of the GOAT back then.

    to this day, BJ think he won that fight
    the judges scorecard were 50-45 49-46 48-47 tho.

    a fight of legend was also on the card
    even tho both were past their prime,
    it was still a good fight.

    Yea. I used to be a huge Anderson SIlva fan, but those fights started to turn me off of him. I was actually glad he got caught clowning against Weidman. And he clearly didn't learn his lesson, clowning again vs Diaz.

    But the Anderson Silva that fought Rich Franklin was an absolute killer. One of the best MMA fighters of all time.

    It was a lot more people than just BJ Penn that thought he won. The contraversal decision was the reason for the immediate rematch cause almost no one other than the judges thought Edgar won.

    It happens man. Sometimes you have bad performances. Silva had so many brilliant ones.

    I will never forget, I was 16 at the time and I was convinced BJ was going to run through Frankie and Anderson was going to get a highlight reel KO against Maia.

    I stayed up late the night before on Xbox Live playing MW2 all hype thinking the fights were going to be the following night. And then I woke up late in the afternoon and read that BJ Penn had lost to Frankie Edgar and that Anderson had a weird fight with Maia. I was like fuck dude I slept two days?!

    Terrible night. I was at a bar and this unattractive girl kept hitting on me buying me drinks and trying to get me to do blow with her. And the event sucked too. Crappy night.

    It started at like 10 am on the west coast due to the time differences in Abu Dhabi
