St Pierre vs Parysian - good fight, Karo was the more technical grappler, but St Pierre was the better striker, and overall much stronger physically. Not the most exciting fight out there, but some good moments, like Karo's rolling kimura, and a great flying knee from St Pierre.
Franca vs Thompson - another pretty good fight. Thopson was the agressor on the feet, Franca was the agressor on the ground. Thompson the more technical striker, but Franca with more power in his fists. Thomposn reminds me of Yves Edwards - tall and lanky frame, good standup, and a surprisingly good ground game for a fighter considered primarily a striker.
Serra vs Curran - Curran fights at 145lbs, and here he was taking on a 155lb fighter. 10 pounds may not seem like much, but at lower weight classes every pound counts, and this was apparent in this fight - Serra consistently overpowered Curran. Overall, fiewer submission attempts than you would expect in a fight between 2 BJJ black belts. Decent fight, but Serra, usually a wild fighter who goes for the finish, has been fighting a little too conservatively for my tastes lately.
Mir vs Simms - Simms is a B fighter at best, more like a C fighter imho, but he has the uncanny ability to avoid submissions, which he showed to good effect here. Mir was the better wrestler, better submissions guy, better striker, better looking (jk) - but still had a real hard time with Simms. Mir needs to work on his cardio, and he definetly needs more ring experience - when the fight is not going according to plan, he tends to fall apart.
Carlos Newton vs Renato Verissimo - Carlos is a VERY experienced, elite fighter, Renato has had only 4 fights in MMA, but Renato is BJ Penns bjj trainer, a BJJ world champ, and in a previous fight absolutely took apart former Welterweight title contender Gill Castillo. Good fight, takedowns by both fighters, reversals by both fighters, sub attempts by both fighters, some good shots thrown (one of the fighters almost gets knocked out).
Huges vs Penn - Huges the most dominant fighter in the welterweight division, Penn the uncrowned king of the lightweight division (he should have won the fight with Uno). Not many people gave Penn a chance - he was moving up a weight class to fight a fighter renowned for his power. Good fight, although i'm not sure if the outcome would be the same if they fough again.
Coture vs Belfort - well, we'll see them fight again soon. The fight was not controversial though - look at the rules - it was a legit win (yes, it was also a freak accident, and doesn't speak of the skill of the two fighters, but per the rules, a legit win overall. If this happened in boxing, it would also be considered a legit win).
Overall, an OK UFC. On the one hand too many decisions and a dud main event, on the other hand if you don't like one sided beatdowns, but rather like to watch well matched fighters fight, this is a good event.
A comment about the DVD itself - there is a 10 minute intro in the beginning, and you cannot skip it! Also, no slo-mo replays whatsoever. They need to fo a better job with DVD's in the future.
