Observations From My Couch: UFC 97

  • That main event was a stinker. But how much can you really blame Anderson Silva? It's not his fault people are petrified of engaging with him.
  • Nothing sadder than seeing a once-great fighter decline. Nothing sadder. Chuck, you've had a great run, but it's time to hang up the gloves and bang strippers full-time.
  • Matt Wiman may have lost a decision (that he deserved), but at least he looked biblical.
  • Antoni Hardsuck.
  • Brian Stann and Steve Cantwell - living proof that the WEC is to the UFC what Little League Baseball is to Major League Baseball.

ROC 24 Postscript

Good show with great action, but very weird with all the decisions and draws. Andy Main and Ricky Lee was a huge crowd-pleaser, Will Martinez was impressive as hell and I still can't believe Dom Stanco lost.
