Diaz fucked Franky up.

Nice comeback win for Scott Smith, Radach was fucking his shit up.

I can't wait for Thomson/Melendez 2.

I'm at my mom's for Easter so I wasn't able to catch this. Can't wait to download the torrent as it looks like it was good. Smith/Radach sounds like a classic.

It wasn't. Solid back and forth and a great come from behind victory by Smith but miles off the FOTYC people are making it out to be.

Oh, and....

Besides a random drunken idiot that my friend invited and kept asking why were a tranny and ladyboy fighting, this was an enjoyable card.

Was he talking about Melendez vs. Damm?

Smith/Radach was awesome. Smith's whole spiel while on the stool in between rounds 2 and 3 made it that much cooler.


I can't believe a guy can be that big, and jump around like he does what a great athlete!

I found this little observation a tad amusing. From Five Ounces of Pain......

"Why did SPIKE TV run endless commercials touting the controversial fight between Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn, encouraging fans to see what the fuss was all about for themselves, and then cut out all the action between rounds in favor of commercials? How were fans supposed to “see for themselves” what happened during “Greasegate” if SPIKE didn’t even air it? It wasn’t really addressed in the commentary and I’m sure many people tuning in left that broadcast a little confused about what the heck was going on."

Yeah - Smith/Radach was no classic but it was damn entertaining.

Would have been about 20x better if I didn't already know the ending when I was watching it.

Yeah, on the whole this was a solid show but certainly not worth 39.99 especially since they didn't show any prelims.
