    I haven't been up on UFC for a little while (except female fighters), is it worth getting the PPV tonight?

    I have no idea. I dont really follow MMA, but i do enjoy watching the fights. I never really know who is who, that is why I usually start these threads, to test the waters and see what folks think. Thinkin of skippin this one, Hockey is on, football is on. I got options. But i think the main event tonight is supposed to be a good one.

    I usually only watch if women are fighting. No women tonight, so I'm giving it a pass. :dontknow:

    I am skipping it. Nevertheless I think Chad Mendes has a good chance of pulling off the upset. I am probably in the minority though. I think Glover Texeira is more well rounded than Phil Davis though I think Davis is more athletic. Tough call but I am going to go with Texeira.

    I watched the Bellator offering last night and saw one of the top three fights of ALL TIME.......Newton vs. Vassell was just fucking AWESOME!!!!
    Never in my life have I seen a fight that was 98% grappling and ground and pound for four and a quarter rounds be off your couch exciting as this one.....I gave a standing O to both Warriors at the end......I am praying that Newton gives this Vassell kid a rematch!!!!

    This does not give the fight justice......Have to say the Chick Fight was awesome in it's own right......I need someone to back me on this....Vassell had Newton locked up MULTIPLE times in Kamoras....Rear naked chokes, To the point Newton was changing color in his face....And time after time Newton would fight his way out....Lost the first two rounds because Vassell just dominated him but just couldn't get the desired result....
    Newtons own corner was screaming at him to stay away from Vassell and use his weird Monkey style Kung Fu.....This Cat favors no side..He can switch up from right to left in a matter of seconds....But at the start of the third he dove right into Vassell with a take down...I'm screaming at the TV "WTF are you doing?" But he slowly and surely turned Vassell's fight against him and DOMINATED Vassell to the point of the end of the fourth, I'm thinking "He's pulled back to within a couple of points'....Bullshit...He evened the score to 38 each.......And.....I'm not telling...On my word...This was possibly the best fight of any discipline I have ever seen.........

    The Aldo vs. Mendes fight is a worthy main event. Both guys are absolute killers at the top of their game. I need more than one fight I care about though to buy the event though.

    Just saw it. Great fight. Mendes needs more killer instinct though, but a great fighter.
    Brazil crowds are assholes though.

    Great lines by each after the fight
    Mendes: Holy shit that was fun
    Aldo: I am the king, Chad the Prince & now we have a Joker (conor) - lol

    UFC's PPV are over-priced.
    They really need to re-think their business model for the future
