Somewhat belatedly.....

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira def. Randy Couture via unanimous decision
Thiago Silva def. Keith Jardine via KO (punch) at 1:35, Round 1
Jake Rosholt def. Chris Leben via submission (arm triangle choke) at 1:30, Round 3
Nate Marquardt def. Demian Maia via KO at :21, Round 1
Brandon Vera def. Krzystztof Soszynski via unanimous decision
Aaron Simpson def. Ed Herman via TKO (injury) at :17, Round 2
Gabriel Gonzaga def. Chris Tuchscherer via TKO (strikes) at 2:27, Round 1
Mike Russow def. Justin McCully via unanimous decision
Todd Duffee def. Tim Hague via KO at :07, Round 1
Mark Munoz def. Nick Catone via split decision
Evan Dunham def. Marcus Aurelio via split decision

Between the quality of the main event and the swift demolition of Maia I guess I'll file this event squarely under "WTF Do I Know?".

Nog and Couture have me believing they both might not be done just yet. It could just be a case of both buys being at a similar level of decline, but I doubt it after the show they put on. Nog would have had a lesser man tapping long before the end of the 3rd and while there's no question it was the right decision, Randy was never outclassed.

Maia....I mean, I didn't think he would walk it, but he won't go far in this business if he has many more nights like that.

All in all, a decent night with only one sucky fight IMO (thanks Mr Vera, Mr Soszynski!) and a really good main event.

Oh, and for those who didn't watch, it ain't a typo up there. Tim Hague really did get laid out like the proverbial starfish in 7 seconds which I believe they said was the fastest KO in UFC history. Probably not a record he'll be boasting about.

I'm glad I didn't watch or order it, mostly because everyone I would want to win didn't win. Couture losing saddens me greatly (huge new contract notwithstanding), the entertaining duo of Leben and Jardine both got destroyed, and even Maia lost.

I actually don't really care about Maia, but I would have rather Anderson Silva faced a ground/jiu jitsu specialist in Maia, rather than face a striker like Marquardt. I just think Silva will have a much easier time with a striker.

And don't get me started on the Vera. Boring fights and he beat up on one of the best trash talkers in Soszynski (thanks dMr for the spelling help).

I really enjoyed the main. Nog looked to be 'on'. More dangerous looking than in either the Silvia or Mir fights but how tough was Randy to last the distance. dMr's point about the possibility of similar states of decline may be valid, but this was still a great fight.

I like Jardine, but I'm worried that he's getting the Wanderlei effect of too many concussions and is susceptible to KO's.

I enjoyed the Leben fight. Leben is just nuts. This could have gone either way earlier, but superior technique telling in the end.

Marquardt - Wow

Vera - pretty uninteresting opener.

The footage of Eh Herman's knee letting go during that final kick was yuck. For those that know knee structure, what is the symptom of movement like that - ACL?

Duffee - Nice

Dunham - Poor old Aurelio - by the time he was able to get it to the ground, he was too beat up to be a massive threat. I thought the judge who scored 30-27 was a bit off. For mine this was a straight forward 29-28.

Overall a pretty fun card for mine.

Edit: I can't count

Pretty wild finish at the PGA Championship. Dustin Johnson is handed a controversial two-stroke penalty on the 72nd hole that keeps him out of a playoff.
