I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that UFC 91 will be the best fight card of 2008. Half way through I thought I was gonna get charged more money -- and I would have paid.
Thomas vs. Brown
My pick for Fight of the Night. Looked like Brown was on his way to a tough loss and then, BAMM!
McLovin' vs. McCrory
McCrory had what looked like slightly better stand-up and then it went to the ground. Highlight Reel Shit! (my pick: submission of the night)
Maia vs. Quarry
Was there ever any doubt? Textbook shit.
Stephens vs. Dos Anjos
What can you say, all these fights were freakin' amazing. Dos Anjos just couldn't keep his own pace and Stephens capitalized. KO! (my pick: knock-out of the night)
Florian vs. Stephenson
How kind was that, to just choke him out in the first round -- no bloody drip, drip. Even the biggest BJ nut-huggers want to see it happen now. After he loses to GSP, he'll lose to Ken Flo -- you heard it here first!
Lesnar vs. Couture
"That's just a big son of a bitch, that's all there is to it!" -Randy 'the natural' Couture. Now, more than ever, I want some new weight classes. There are too many good match-ups we're going to miss because of this glaring error. Couture looked like dynamite and he still lost.
Riley vs. Gurgel
Gurgel might be a decent fighter, if he could just pull his head out of his ass and listen to his corner.
Robinson vs. Bocek?
That can't be right -- why is Alvin Robinson still fighting in the UFC? Oh... because he beat Gurgel once.
If these fights didn't do it for you, nothing will. This is as good or better than anything DREAM or WEC have done this year. I suspect we will have to wait a long time before we see another card like this one.
