Observations From My Couch: WEC 46 "Thank God, A Night of Decisive Wins"

  • Deividas Taurosevicius was a rugby player in Lithuania before coming to the States and taking up mixed martial arts. Obviously, that's where those slick takedowns came from.
  • Mike Brown is the second best 145-pound fighter in the world. No shame in losing to him.
  • Kamal Shalorus vs. Dave Jansen was like watching a man fight a boy.
  • Urijah Faber won, and with that victory comes a viable pay-per-view main event against Jose Aldo and the chance for everyone to get a pay raise. You just know every fighter on the card, Raphael Assuncao included, sent a fruit basket and a thank you note to Faber's locker room afterwards.
  • Benson Henderson submitted Jamie Varner to become the new WEC lightweight champ. Meanwhile, in the UFC's lightweight division... no one cared.
