1.) Ian McCall vs Benavidez I enjoyed this fight, I dont really have anything negative to say about this one. McCall can take a punch, but it would probably be better for him if he didnt get hit so much. Looks like Benavidez may be fighting Mighty mouse again not really too many other contenders at fly weight right now
2.)Maia fitched John Fitch ! I was surprised that Maia was getting those takedowns almost at will. The majority of which were actually trips. Maia is a bully at 170lbs looks like he's going back to BJJ as his primary means of attack. I enjoyed the fight his control was superb and those kinds of fight don't bore me at all I love all aspects of MMA ! If you want to watch boxing look at HBO. I hope he can make a run for the title and I am interested in what kind of match-ups the UFC gives him next.
3.) Rashad Evans vs Lil Nog ................Disappointing isn't even close more like disgusted ! Rashad wasn't pulling the trigger no aggression at all , I hope he doesnt think that he won that fight. What the hell was up with the game of patty cake that they were playing. I think Lil Nog being a south paw was throwing him off but this is the pro's shouldve been training for that. Both of these guys are counter fighters , this is what happens when you have two counter fighters and no one wants to engage
4.) OVEREEM !! WTF !! I dont care what anyone says that was his fight to lose ! I believe that he is better than Bigfoot in most aspects and he was clearly winning the fight. Cocky cocky cocky ...... fighting with his hands down like that big mistake i dont understand it. ......... I feel like this is a big wake-up call for the Reem and he got served a big foot sized slice of humble pie. Thought you was on top of the world you just human and you need to respect everyone that steps in that octagon! Doesnt matter how bad someones technique is when they are 280 plus pounds when you get hit with that its lights out
Also have to give credit to bigfoot for having a heart of a warrior and coming out to fight in that 3rd round looking for the kill even tho he was losing. Extra points for striking and not going for a takedown which probably would have got him KO'd.
5.) Edgar vs Aldo great fight as much as I love Edgar I was more than convinced after the fiver rounds were up that Aldo was going to get the win. first 2rds for Aldo then rounds 4 and 5 to Edgar the third round was close but my thing is you have to beat the champ and in a close battle like that you go with the champ ! Tough loss Edgar ! I was rooting for him
