      Hope he does because Machida does not deserve a title shot.
      Glad the main event washed the terrible taste of Hendo/Machida out of my mouth.

        Really? I didn't see the fights last night, but don't forget that this is the second time in a year, that he has literally fought for his #1 contendership. He's the guy who Chael leapfrogged over, because he wouldn't fight Jones on a week's notice.

        We'll see what happens with Gustavson, but if Machida doesn't deserve a title shot, nobody does.

        Glad the main event washed the terrible taste of Hendo/Machida out of my mouth.
        Another fucking armbar. Christ, these girls need to step up their sub-defense. Hopefull Miesha Tate is next. She gave Rousey a run for her money, the first time they fought.

        • I loved Ronda Rousey's match, Liz tried to make something happen but I feel Rousey is untouchable at this point in her career.

          I do love how people complain about her arm bar wins. I mean if it aint broke don't fix it. It's like complaining that someone KO's their opponents too much(retarded)

          Congrats go out to Urijah Faber and Robbie Lawler on their wins as well, all in all a pretty great pay per view ( minus that shitty Lyoto Machida fight)

            That's a hilarious statement dude, it's like being pissed if someone just always knocked out their opponent...

            The main bout was really about Dana White eating his words regarding letting women fight in the UFC because he found a phenom ( who just so happened to be a girl)

            I just don't get the hate....

              You're confusing hate, with the fact that WMMA is still very thin in terms of talent.

              If Rousey loses that fight, guess what, no more WMMA in the UFC. Dana has even said this himself.

              Dana White is not eating his words. He's just smart enough to see the star power that Ronda brings to the table. Once she gets beat, who else do they have? The person that beat her? She better be just as hot and marketable as Ronda.

              It's the Ronda show. That's it. There's nothing wrong with it, but it is what it is.

                Honestly, boring as fuck. I would have been PISSED had I actually paid for that. The Henderson fight was laughable, had he not come forward there would have been legitimately zero punches thrown. I get that Machida is a counter-puncher but goddamn, that's ALL he does.

                The main bout was some chick just steam-rolling another and attempting to do the same submission, over and over, again. Anytime shit like that can happen in a championship match means the division is severely underdeveloped and more importantly not worthy of being the main event.

                The (free) Dodson - Mighty Mouse card >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
                The main event was very reminiscent of Hughes/Trigg. The only reason people are talking like this is because they are women.

                  I feel like it is hate when you have people complain about her using her signature move to finish her opponents or when people complain that Rousey's opponents should be able to defend themselves better against the armbar.

                  No one could stop her from performing that move, no amount of gym training would matter...

                  If Rousey loses that fight, guess what, no more WMMA in the UFC. Dana has even said this himself.
                  Till the next marketable female shows up of course...

                  Dana White is not eating his words. He's just smart enough to see the star power that Ronda brings to the table. Once she gets beat, who else do they have? The person that beat her? She better be just as hot and marketable as Ronda.
                  Dana White is a smart business man to realize the star power Rousey has but I also think he was impressed by her fighting skills as well...

                  I just don't see her going anywhere or losing anytime soon, she's just too good and intimidating right now...


                  It's the Ronda show. That's it. There's nothing wrong with it, but it is what it is.
                  True but a year from now there very well might be an impressive stable of female fighters in the UFC, it's still in it's infancy....


                  Rousey just posted this via her Facebook, hilarious and true!!!!!

                  • Silva and Stann was insane! I'm so happy Silva won.

                    Nice to see Mark Hunt with the win. I wanna see Nelson and Hunt go at it! Struve's jaw was broken! Crazy. Struve just stood there taking hits tho .. Not smart lol

                    Lombard needs to drop down in weight.

                            Great card! But I'm sure someone will get injured.

                              I agree. You figure Weidman will take him down both of the first two rounds, start getting relaxed in the fight and Silva will kick him in the face.

                                Hopefully only being 3 months away that doesnt happen because Im liking how its shaping up but how many times have we seen fights change within days/the day of the fight? Too many then I can remember unfortunately.
