    Any links? Pretty decent card, although just about every match has a fighter up there in age. If this card was about 3 years ago, it would considered stacked

    <spoiler>I think Al Turk deserves another shot in the UFC, It was obvious he was poked in the eye. Extremely bad referee'ing</spoiler>

    Didn't even know this was hosted in Germany so I missed all the fights live. Just saw the replays though, and Mirko still looks a bit slow. Definitely not light on his fight like in his early days. I'm really pulling for him to do well.

    Well Cro-Cop just jetted from the UFC after that fight, he just signed a 3 fight contract with Dream lieing to us all about how bad he wanted to go for the UFC Title no matter what, that he was going to go for it or die trying.

    I didn't know Cro Cop jetted already. Everyone I was rooting for lost, except Cro Cop. But since he just up and outed, I wish he lost. Despite him being slower, his strikes still look deadly.

    The Congo/Velasquez fight was completely different from what I expected. Cain has no power in his strikes. He could be exploited in his next fight.

    I was really pulling for Wanderlei. This fight pretty much confirms that he is definitely on the decline. He's not as aggressive as he used to be. He's developed sort of a glass jaw recently. Sad day for me. The axe murderer is one of my favorite fighters

    Mike Swick is from Houston. I wonder if he is a Rockets fan?

    Did he even throw a punch? Cain's wrestling is top notch and he is a smart fighter with a GREAT chin. He was taking power shot after power shot from Kongo and just brushed them off and got the takedown and kept Kongo down the entire fight. He has a bright future in the heavyweight division.

    The Franklin/Silva fight was fun as hell, but I think it could have gone either way. I can't wait to see Silva as a middleweight though. I really don't think he cares if he wins or loses, he just wants to put on a good show for the fans and he accomplishes that every time.

    Overall the card was pretty mediocre but what do you expect for the event right before UFC 100? The next 3 or 4 events are going to be absolutely awesome.

    In other words you lost right?

    On Cain, it's obvious he doesn't behold the power that Carwin has and I haven't seen his other UFC Fight but on UFC it says his last 3 UFC Fights we wins via TKO so he has to have some power that just wasn't shown last night??

    Cain didn't throw any strikes standing up, but he pretty much ground and pounded the whole fight. He was hitting Kongo in the face a good percentage on the ground, but Kongo's face looked to be in good shape. Pluse Kongo could still get up. Towards the end, he just got exhausted.

    Silva does put on a good show, but I miss that aggression. It's like McGrady settling for jumpshots. You just keep waiting for him to drive and dunk it off the backboard, but you know those days are gone.

    I can't wait for UFC 100 either. Lesnar is a new breed. The heavyweight division needed a new prototype. I always hated Sylvia. He was just big

    I didn't catch the Swick fight. Did he get a guillotine choke again? Or should I say Swickotine
