    The UFC 149 one maybe, but the last PPVs have been good, if you count the Prelims.

    Henderson opened as a 3-1 favorite over Diaz.
    The odds-maker had this to say:

    I don't know if I quoted the oddsmaker or not but he said A LOT of fans have boners for Nate right now, that was probably expected.

    no real relevant fights though. no way machida loses to bader and no way shogun loses to vera. they were basically tune ups. only real fight on fox card was joe lauzon vs jamie varner.

    i had bendo winning the title fight up until i watched the fight again leading up the rematch

    happy for bendo's success but honestly diaz vs edgar is a better fight to me on paper

    First post I'm agreeing with you 100% in awhile.
    Bendo does deserve his props though, and if he continues to improve,
    he will be FUN to watch in the UFC.

    well picking out jones' next opponent is relevant, but i just enjoyed the ko's and back and forth action

    not to say the ppv was bad, just abot every ppv has been good

    ^Not if it is a rematch with Piss-man or Shogun, the dude named after an era that was wiped off the earth with a little gun powder.

    lmao I don't mean for it to sound that mean!

    No not Chael Sonnen either, enough with the old vets. Jones needs to call out A.Silva, simple as that, and hope Dana moves him into the HW div to keep that from happening.

    Realistically though, Jones could of had to face Bader or Vera, I know getting into the Octagon, you are never safe, BUT COME ON SOME, you know Jones wouldn't even need to train to beat either of those 2 again.

    That whole card was sorry excuses for #1 contenders matches

    tbh i think they are both scared of each other.

    jones already beat bader and vera too and that was even less competitive. id like to see the lyoto fight again, id like to see rashad match the wrestling with him this time, and this is only because i think they have the talent to draw up a winning plan.

    come on lungzz give chael a chance. i know he is a cheating bastard but you know he is going to lose anyway, just sit back and enjoy a slow painful beating
