    Yep, It was basically a glorified sparring match, Carmouche gets a title shot and does not leave it all out there at all. The stats say she landed 18 strikes but only 1 to the head in 25 mins, she was doing a lot of moving around but like Blue said didnt really want to get hurt at all. Shevchenko did more then enough to win but not always easy when your partner isnt there to fight.

    Perry 's fight was a war which he could have gone either way, that was the first time I seen Perry get backed up and even went for TD's and clinches while Vincent was the guy mostly moving forward. And that nose had a very impressive break.....hoof

    volkan looked very good too, I thought the fight would be closer and the "sledgehammer would give him some trouble but never did, a much needed win for him.

    I only heard yesterday, but apparently Carmouche was asking for a rubber match in the post fight presser! How deluded can one person be?!?!?!

    I can't recall. The only fairly recent title fight I remember sucking was Woodley/Wonderboy, but even then it wasn't as bad as this one.

    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.

    Yep, after that performance nobody will be asking to see her in the cage again.

    Anderson -Maia or Anderson -Leites might be worst of all time.

    The Anderson thing is a good comparison for Shevchenko actually. Both really best against fighters who attack them, both very likely to land some spectacular finishes...….but both capable of being in a snoozer if the opponent waits on the outside and causes Anderson/Shevchenko to just pick them off and win an easy decision.
