    In a single event we had:

    - two fights ending in rare technical decisions (both Alan Belcher and Gian Villante were severely poked in the eye which forced referees to stop the fight and collect judges scorecards)
    - two fights with one of fighters injuring his finger (Yancy Medeiros injured his thumb and Jon Jones injured his big toe)
    - Bruce Buffer screwing BIG TIME during the post-fight announcement: accidentally mistaking Pat Healy for Jim Miller (completely fair in hindsight, as later it was revealed Healy failed his drug test and the result was changed to NC)
    - the introduction of The Demonic Voice (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2pUoxrG6pSY )
    - Cody McKenzie defeating Leonard Garcia (which finally forced UFC brass to cut Garcia from the promotion)
    - one fight scrapped after the weigh-ins (which was unheard of at the time)
    - one of the least deserving, compelling or promising title shots ever leading to a one-sided beatdown

    Yep, it was crazy.

    Imagine if Sonnen survived the first round and they stopped the fight because of Jon's toe, giving Sonnen a TKO victory for the title.

    Yup totally, and I watched a few fights from the airport before getting home cuz I was just back from Rivera Maya which made it even more weird. Didnt Caraway score a huge come from behind sub in that fight?

    a fight being scraped after the weigh-ins isnt that crazy considering Kevin Randleman knocked himself out right before a fight

    Just for your info,.. most HQ cameras for production do not record audio. I am betting this is someone near the announcing mics, or boom operator.

    ? What's wrong? AFAIK, you say "fingers" when you mean both fingers and toes. Or not?

    You can refer to them as "injured digits", but technically a toe is a finger, but a thumb is not.
