    Being a huge fan of UFC and involved in amateur mixed marital arts fighting. This fight was by far one of the best UFC fights since Mark Kerr was around smashing faces in ful contact fighting.

    Im actually really glad they both got contracts. How well they'll fare overall in the UFC is still kind of up in the air with me. They can both obviously take hits... from each other. And they can both stand in there and strike... against each other.

    Put them against a Randy Couture, Chuck Lidell, or a Rich Franklin and they're smashed. But that's basically because they're new to the big leagues.

    I like Forrest Griffin a lot. Simply because of this logic, "Im going to wait to get hit in the mouth and then figure it out from there."

    The middleweight fight? Pathetic. Diego Sanchez is a good 175 lbs fighter. His opponent was dissapointing. If Chris Lebon was in there, that would have been an entertaining fight that would have lasted longer than 3 minutes.

    Poiesis: You going to watch the Couture vs Lidell 2 fight? I watched the first one which was really good. Im actually pulling for Lidell in this one. But I doubt it's going to end in knock-out. Im saying this goes to decision. Lidell wins in a split.

    other arm.

    I'm happy with how that fight was called - they're both awesome fucking fighters, but I think Forrest did edge out Bonnar a bit. Good call to give 'em both the contracts for sure, but you know Forrest is just going to pawn the watch and piss the money away on booze, haha.

    On another note, what the fuck was up with Shamrock? I'm a fan of Franklin, he's a great fighter, but Shammy falling twice? What the shit? He was the one attacking Franklin, and it looked like his legs just gave out both times...

    Anyways, great fights. Fuck Pay-Per-View, I'll just watch the highlights for the Lidell/Couture fight..

Shamrock could not defend himself and referee John McCarthy stopped the fight.

    In what the UFC’s top executives, officials, fighters and fans agreed was one of the best fights in UFC history, Forrest Griffin (10-2-0) from Athens, Ga., out pointed Stephan Bonnar (9-2-0) from Chicago, Ill., to win a unanimous decision and the title of The Ultimate Fighter™ in the light heavyweight division. But both fighters became winners when Zuffa, LLC awarded both fighters six-figure fight contracts with the UFC. The action in the Octagon was non-stop as both fighters scored in all three rounds with strikes, kicks and ground action. But all three judges scored it 29-28 in Griffin’s favor.
