I don't want to spoil it for anyone catching the west coast feed, but but bell rings at about 10:30 and it's non-stop action until the conclusion. Jim Gray and Al Bernstein were both searching for superlatives at the end, with Gray calling it the best fight he's ever seen, and he's a knob but he's seen his share.

That was the best fight I've seen in forever to be sure. Just plain awesome from start to finish. I would, and probably will, pay huge amounts to watch a rematch. Too bad no one watches Showtime anymore.
You hold Hughes as the least of the three, eh? Interesting... I actually view him as much more dominant than Liddel, though perhaps not yet on the same level as Franklin -- who's performance against Loiuseau really, really impressed (and surprised) me.
