Crazy ass Mexican American fight. The look on Melendez's face when Diego tagged him with that uppercut, even though, it was out of his control, was priceless :)

I don't know why Rogan was so excited, after the fact, about Cain vs. JDS. That was as one-sided as it gets. Another 5 rounds of hell for JDS, 10 in a row now, and he wants to come back for more? Who the heck is going to challenge Cain now? White said Werdum? I guess he might be able to make Cain think twice about smothering him with a clinch.

Did you guys see that Dodson KO? Talk about a delayed reaction with the KO of the night.

I don't know if JDS can or would but I would love to see him move to LHW and challenge Bones Jones.

Diego Sanchez vs Gilbert Melendez = Fight of the night!!!

Those two were frickin warriors.

But after Deigo drops Gilbert with an upper cut he immediately tries to get his back.

Sanchez vs Melendez fight video
http://tapnapsnap.com/video-ufc-166-gilbert-melendez-vs-diego-sanchez-fight-millennium/
UFC delivered with great fights.

Cain once again dominated JDS. But I guess will never see Cain vs Cormier fight. Cormier planning to drop @ 205 (he wants bones).
YES! YES! YES! hands down Fight of the Year!!! Melendez vs Diego....maybe 1 more fight for Melendez (maybe TJ Grant) for #1 title shot???
What about Hector Lombard @ 170lbs, that dude looks scary in the WW division. 1st rd TKO on Nate Not So Great Marquat......

I agree, Diego would've had a way better chance of winning had he went for a tko instead of a submission. I think they should have a rematch but have it 5 rounds.
I wonna see Jones vs Cain.

Hopefully Cain doesn't Roberto Duran it and get fat and party being alone at the top. I doubt it doe.

Cain would maul Jones like any other of his foos. Jones is not big or strong enough to hang with the champ even if he moved up to HW.

There really isn't a huge size differential between the 2 except that Jones is 3 inches taller (6'4 vs. 6'1). He walks around at 230 lbs and Cain walks around at 240 lbs. He is more than big enough and strong enough to handle Cain, but his length would be the X factor. This would be an awesome fight.

Jones' reach would have no impact at all on Cain. Cain is "out-reached" in pretty much all his fights. And in fact Jones' length may be his biggest weakness against Cain. He'd have no leverage with those longs legs to withstand Cain's takedowns or even issue them himself (and you're talking community college wrestling vs. an All american).

Jones' only chance would be to nail Cain with a terrific front kick or spinning elbow -- so basically he has a puncher's chance but that's about it. I mean JDS landed a bunch of clean shots on Cain during the fight but they had no effect.
missed that whole ppv card this past weekend

hopefully i can find a link to watch them later...

in TUF news, season 3 of TUF Brazil gets Wandy back as coach vs.........CHAEL SONNEN

I would agree if we were talking about say Anderson Silva, who's reach could be nullified by a good wrestler due to his poor takedown defense. Jones is a whole different animal. Yes, he may have "only" wrestled for Junior College, but his wrestling is 2nd to none, imo, and that includes the likes of Cain. Hope the fight happens.
