    UFC on FUEL TV: Gustafsson vs Silva marked the UFC's first time stepping foot on Swedish soil.
    I personally watched the event (main-card wise) and will break-down the fights in a quick manner (the
    Swedish crowd was very accepting of the fights, not booing much and in fact breaking into 'clap' like
    chants
    very often; good crowd).


    Biggest Winner:Siyar Bahadurzada (Def. Paulo Thiago)
    Biggest Loser: Damacio Page (Third straight loss)
    Best Submission: John Maguire (Armbarred Demarques Johnson)
    Best (Technical)Knockout: Siyar Bahadurzada (Def. Paulo Thiago)
    Most Shocking: Thiago being dropped in 40 seconds in Siyar's debut!!

    Siyar Bahadurzada came up big in his debut at Welterweight; fighting known Paulo Thiago, and disposing
    of him in less then a minute. Almost as shocking was British John Maguire catching Demarquez sleeping
    for his first professional Arm-bar victory (which was deservedly Submission of the Night)...I still can't get over
    Siyar's Knock out of the Night.

    What a debut...

    (DogMeat, Siyar didn't respect him too much after the KO upon the review.)

    (Maguire Def. Johnson via ARMBAR 4:40 of round 2.)

    Welterweights: Paulo Thiago vs Siyar Bahadurzada

    I was more surprised Paulo ran in like a fool. I was in the washroom when it happened but luckily it was short enough the Replay was the whole fight. Thiago just ran forward for a clinch and got what he was asking for. He fell SO fast though, I may not have picked him in the picks but I called it that night though.

    couldn't agree more. The whole card wasn't the best in the world, but 4 of 6 fights were finished. And we got a seventh that was finished as well :D. NO complaining.

    Who do you see Alex getting next? I don't see him in line for the belt just yet. Maybe Lyoto Machida for a real step-up, or even Ryan Bader for a solid test against his wrestling (which was his weakness in his last loss).

    Gustaffson reminded me of a slower Jon Jones though, he is going places.

    alex needs a smaller test at the moment, putting him against lyoto machida is WAYYYY above his league. in my opinion lyoto machida is one of the best in the world, i say give him bader or maybe a rematch with phil.

    if he won either fight i would say give him an elite opponent. i dont like for fighters to be rushed into top ranked opponents.

    #SIDENOTE# thiago got FLATTENED!! i didn't xpect that. reminds me of how shocked i was when sotiropolous got ko'd, surprised until i realized he aint a striker. but still i expected him to make a title run.

    **- Have to agree with you here. If you read what I said, Lyoto would be the real test. Yes Machida is one of the best in the UFC, but he is 0-3, 0-4, so I don't see him getting to pick and choose at this point. Bader would be an insult to Alex (but makes sense for Bader after Rampage victory); the Davis rematch would actually be ideal...Though I doubt Alex could take Phil out as easy as he did Silva.
    ***- Did you see the fight? The highlight may be a little misleading but Alex didn't finish the fight; far from it actually. He did drop Silva early in round 1 though.

    i believe he has 2 fights left on his deal so maybe he bounces back.

    hard to imagine his confidence will be there though.

    Hard to believe they cut him. He isn't too old (31) and still has an impressive record at 14-4. Looking on the bright side of the fact he's 1-3 in the past 4, one of the loses was fight of the night.

    If he looks lousy in his next fight I would be worried.

    I don't agree with that necessarily but it's definitely portrayed that way to the fans.

    i dont agree with it fully but i do to an extent. a lot of times i seen top notch fighters get knocked out in the ufc or take a humiliating loss and never be quite the same. look at chuck liddell, matt hughes, karo, dan hardy, etc.

    i dont believe its a physical thing, but a mental thing

    Dan Hardy I feel was over-hyped. He was never a good wrestler, that was his weakness.
    Chuck and Karo you could possibly consider as candidates for your theory, but I think they are also drug abusers who lost their will/passion/mind and eventually chin because of it.

    Matt Hughes and Chuck were legends though. Matt Hughes is only second to GSP as most dominant champion, heck he forced GSP to implement a stronger wrestling gameplan. I think the mental aspect isn't so much the loss or the KO but the bad habits that strip their passion.
