    I think that it's a matter of education, then. I think that MMA (and any of its constituent parts) is one of those sports that, the more you really understand about it (especially through practice,) the more interesting it becomes. Actually, I think that if you just go to one BJJ class with an open mind, you'll be impressed by how technically interesting it really it. You're in Toronto, right? I think that there is a 10th planet school there.

    That's not a bad idea. [​IMG]

    I predict that it will come immediately following the end of today, and that for the most part - status quo will be maintained.

    and, despite being uninvited, I am willing to look further ahead and predict that it will predate the next day.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    Hmmmmmm. I don't know.
    evans and silva - on paper the are very similar.
    I am not sure what's going on with Rampage and Evans so I hope Evans kinda wins so it doesn't jeapordize anything with the rampage fight however I could be wrong about this.

    With these two guys I want to see a strong fight.

    The rest of the card is actually very strong but is just ok to me.

    I do want Junior to win!

    Wow, way to go out on a limb there.[​IMG] I've got: JDS Over the Hurricane But put me in the camp that would love to see old pokey knock the shit out of some UFC HW's... just because. JM over Bang Bang by LnP in a fight that no one gives a shit about. JL over SS in another fight that no one gives a shit about. DH over PD by sub. Evans over Silva by TKO. Really this is a toss em fight. Both will win if they end up on top. Both can knock the shit out of the other, and both can take a brother down. I think Evans defense is a little tighter and Silva has a habit of using his jaw to dodge. I say he gets clipped, tripped, mounted and pounded.

    I really underestimated this card. 3 fights, 3 nice finishes.
    Even the non-finish was fantastic - Stout beat the hell out of that punching bag.


    Man, this might be one of the best overall events I've seen.

    WOW - Silva is an idiot.

    I wanted hazelett to win. Daley didn't make weight and the dude has some heavy fucking hands.

    Silva was an idiot he was down he knew he was down and still played the clown even when he had evans in trouble.

    It was a very solid card.

    I think only because of this was he able to throw evans off his game and win the 3rd round.
