    Wow, Herb fucked up in that fight, allowed Arlovski to land a punch on Cruz after stopping him for an illegal blow, rather than allowing Cruz to get back into his position properly........then when Arloski was punching fuck out of Cruz, he was holding the fence the entire time, and Herb clearly sees it and does nothing!

    Next up, Leben vs MacDonald

    Yup, exactly as I remember Leben........this fight is just a brawl, Leben throwing hard looping punches, MacDonald trying to close distance and clinch. Leben was fairly easily winning the fight till MacDonald got the TD, and Leben finally tried to escape, giving up his neck and getting choked out cold. Decent fight, if a poor standard though.

    Next up, Griffin vs Jardine

    Damn, I didn't recall it being a clash of heads that led to Griffin losing this fight, he was fighting really smart up till then, picking Jardine off as he came into range......brutal ending though, Jardine hammered him on the ground.

    Tito was pretty much awful throughout the fight, I recalled it being a bit closer than this. Chuck murdered him in the 1st, the second was close but the TD wasn't enough for Tito to win the round, then the 3rd was more of the same to the 1st round again, Tito diving from miles out for a TD and Chuck hurting him bad.

    All round, decent event but MMA has come a long way since then.

    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Was fence grabbing illegal at that point?

    It was illegal but not as enforced as it is now.
