(Props to Fightlinker reader iamphoenix for the image),
-First point: I didn't notice a number at the end of this event's name. Are numbering systems kaput? Will we see a Versus-style "just name it after the headliners" theme in the future? That seems unlikely, as it's been confirmed that every Fox card going forward will air two fights (and clock in at 90 minutes - fingers crossed for at least the possiblity of more fights making air). Just do the damn numbers - either integrate them with the PPV ones or start anew with Fox. You didn't spend all of these years conditioning us to dick with that now, did you?
-Second point: see the picture above. Nothing short of a flat-out slobberknocker would have satisfied the hardcores, who looked forward to this day in the same way that morons anticipate the Second Coming. This isn't pro wrestling: scripting what happens is a one-way ticket to oblivion and the federal pen. You put the best fighters in the world against each other again and again and you record what happens.
-Dana White has caught some flack for doing the same thing he always does after a card (ie, offer half-assed analysis of the main event while loudly proclaiming that he doesn't know what he's talking about). This time, he questioned why Cain was content to stand at distance with JDS instead of using his wrestling to try to secure an advantage. Well, news flash, everyone: so was Cain. He said after the fight that the game plan was to pressure and get in close, and that he just didn't execute what they had practiced. In addition to offering a more compelling fight and answering more questions (STILL don't know how JDS reacts to elite-level wrestling), doing so would have saved us another round of indignant blog posts in reaction to the most mundane of repetitive occurances.
