Wow! Just Wow. This card is one of the best, if not the best, fight cards that the UFC has delivered. Eight out of 13 finishes and decisions that left fight fans on the edge of their seats are not something to bitch about. Cain Velasquez showed to the world that the second ranked fighter after him does not even come close to beating him. I'll say this now but Cain will stay as the UFC Heavyweight Champion as long as he wants that belt. No one in the roster can fucking challenge the guy. No one. Speaking of no one, everyone thought that El Niño and the Dream would be a barn burner but to say that we expected the same level of intensity that they delivered? We've got ourselves a fight of the year here. A lot of fighters making statements with their powers -- Dodson Koing Montague, Lombard sending Nate closer to Jesus Christ's kingdom and Amagov and Ferguson showing that they're not just decision machines.
In our own money pool, we have proven once again to the playground community how good and competitive this Mania1 camp is. Our own guy POTATO623 not only topscored our camp with a ridiculous score of 115 points, he also showed the PG community that he is for real. With that performance, he snatched the leadership and throne in our camp after five events. The race is now wide open with DEUCE02 falling from grace and returning to the middle scoring-performance he has exhibited in his past seasons.
Enough of the talking:
