For me this was the best UFC event in a while as all the fights where entertaining and it was a night of finishes and great endings and what looks like the last fight from a UFC Hall of Famer anyway here are my thoughts of the matches

Chuck Liddell vs. Rich Franklin was the biggest surprise for me, I underestimated Rich and he knocked out Liddell who has now been stopped in his last three fights and you now have to think this is his last fight in the UFC
All credit to Rich as he broke his arm early in the fight and still managed to KO Chuck with a great punch to the jaw at the end of the first round

After the fight Joe Rogan said he does not want to call another Liddell fight and he should ride into the sunset, to be honest he should have stopped at least two fights ago.

Patrick Barry vs. Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic was exactly what you would think both men stood and traded it was a great display with some great kicks and Cro Cop throwing some kicks we’ve not seen in years and to prove he has a ground game Cro Cop won by choke and then in something we don’t see often Cro Cop asked Dana not to be stingy and give him a bonus for submission of the night or fight of the night and he ended up getting Submission of the night

Martin Kampmann vs. Paulo Thiago was a standard fight with Kampmann looking really good in getting the decision win

Gilbert Yvel vs. Ben Rothwell was quite exciting both fighters gave there all in the first round and in the next two rounds worked a lot ton the mat and both gave there all and Rothwell getting the decision win

Carlos Condit vs. Rory MacDonald started the PPV off and they both put on a great show MacDonald really controlled the fight but Condit has a great third round and took the fight to Condit and the fight was stopped 7 seconds left in the last round after landing some great punches and elbows the crowd where not happy as MacDonald was from Canada but it was the right decision for the ref to make but had it went to decision then Rory MacDonald would have likely won

I was three for five in my predictions tonight which was not bad
