What happened? I missed the fights. I read that the Mir/Overeem fight was a bloody good mess.

Kinda sorta boring. Overeem played it safe but when he threw a punch, it landed with authority. Mir was certainly a bloody mess.

Aldo is sucha beast. Lamas put up a good fight, but Aldo chopped his legs down and was landing some good combos. He announced he's moving up to 155, vacating the 145 title, and facing Pettis in July. Dana said if Aldo loses, he can choose to go back to 145 for an immediate title shot.

Missed the Barao/Faber fight but from everything I read, Herb Dean stopped it WAY too soon.

Funnest fight of the night goes to Varner/Trujillo. Varner was landing all kinds of shots and Trujillo was hurt swinging wildly until he ducked a punch and threw a perfect right hook...

Herb Dean asked Faber to do something when Barao was standing over him throwing hammer fist. Faber then gave Dean the thumbs up, then seconds later Dean stopped it. On top of all that, Faber was blocking Baraos hammer fist. They need give Herb Dean the boot from being a ref in any kind of sport, hes frickin horrible.

he's inconsistent. almost makes me wonder if he had money on some fights.

u think he saw his tiny ass thumb behind Barao's leg??? He should've screamed "I"M GOOD!!!"

I don't think it should've been stopped but rules are rules.
Vitor Belfort vs. Chris Weidman on 5/24

Wanderlei SIlva vs. Chael Sonnen as the co-main event, i think

It was a pretty sorry showing for Mir. I think he needs to hang them up because that was pathetic. It's not even as if Overeem fought some great fight.

Overeem played it safe and didn't even throw a kick. Then he called out Brock Lesnar why would you call out a fighter that you already dominated?
Donald Cerrone vs. Edson Barboza on UFC on Fox, 4/19

This could be a crazy kickboxing war, or Cerrone takes the fight to the ground.

Aldo is getting bored at 145.

that's the worst division in the UFC.

I think Flyweight is the worst due to it having zero depth. Bantam is below Featherweight for me because it is a 4 fighter division. Aldo and Barao both should move up (Aldo to 155, Renan to 145). Barao has fresh matchups with all the top FW's (Edgar, Swanson, Mendes, Poirier, Zombie, Lamas), and I'm all in on seeing Edgar vs Barao

i agree, but i give that division a pass since it's new. i guess we'll might have to wait for Barao/Faber 3 before he moves up................ i'm assuming there could be a part 3 upcoming because of the herb dean stoppage.

Edgar/Barao and Edgar/Mendez and Mendez/Barao are all great potential match-ups....... LOL @ mendez hyping up TJ Dillashaw to fight barao next (post fight show)

this. whether he saw it or not, Faber got dropped twice in the first and was well on his way to getting demolished.


i remember in the faber/aldo fight faber was face down covering his head with aldo mounted on his back dropping bombs and the ref let faber ride it out for the ENTIRE last minute of the fourth (?). i don't think herb was gonna have any of that.

Big fan of Barboza and Cerrone, but unless Barboza can keep the fight standing, I see Cerrone winning by submission

i was thinking maybe they'd do cerrone/hernderson 3. now with aldo getting that title shot i guess we're gonna see henderson/melendez 2 or henderson/nurmagomedov
