i have to say......it was a tad bit overrated.

thats not me trying to hate on the UFC just for the sake of it.

but after reading everyones comments i wanted to see it really bad.....it wasnt that exciting.

It wasn't really my kind of show either. It wasn't bad, but also didn't live up to my hopes. I will say, I was pulling for Sosninsky, Akiyama and Carwin, and in each case, they lost to who I consider technically inferior fighters as a result of what I considered largely tactical mistakes so it was slightly disappointing. Sosninsky got pulled into a brawl and got caught, Akiyama gassed out and then got caught in a triangle, and as for Carwin, well I think enough has been said. I can see the appeal in some of those fights, but I prefer to see the more technical fighters prevail as opposed to the brawler types.

I thought it was a hell of a card, George is a beaaaaast in the lightweight division. I think he'll get a title shot soon, well he at least should. Leben wants Wanderlei and as much as I dislike Leben, that dude is a monster and he just keeps moving forward, much respect to that dude and him aand Wand will put on a great show.

I was dissapointed with the Carwin loss, but props to Lesnar for weathering the storm, he's a tough dude. But Great card all the way through, anyone catch the powerbomb knockout???? Gerald Harris FTW

That card was sick nasty. Especially with the lack of consistent exciting cards lately, last night was awesome. Every fight was sweet.

And I don't know how anybody could say the main event was overrated. It would have been worse if Carwin won by 1st round KO or if Lesnar won by a dominate 1st round GNP TKO. It was way more then I expected because nobody saw it going out of the 1st round and it was probably going to be one sided. Well Carwin beat the **** out of Lesnar for an entire round, and then Lesnar toughed it out like a champ, and kept his composure and submitted Carwin in an amazing comeback from behind fight. That's an ATG MMA Heavyweight fight haha.

I think you would've enjoyed it more had you seen it live. Back-and-forth fights lose a certain something when you know the result.
