First, the results of the main card:

Frankie Edgar beat BJ Penn via unanimous decision

Randy Couture beat James Toney via submission

Demian Maia beat "Super" Mario Miranda via unanimous decision

Gray Maynard beat Kenny Florian via unanimous decision

Nate Diaz beat Marcus Davis via submission

Prelims on Spike:

Joe Lauzon beat Gabe "I want cake" Ruediger via submission

Nik Lentz over Andre Winner via unanimous decision

My thoughts:

The string of great UFC shows hit a snag here with a mostly boring fight card. Lauzon's win was really impressive (you have to see how fast he transitioned his moves while on the ground) and of course Randy Couture proved that Toney is not ready for MMA and probably never will be. Edgar, IMO, proved that BJ Penn cannot get motivated for any fight nowadays as he mostly owned Penn for five rounds. You could have given Penn round 2, but after that Edgar easily outclassed BJ.

With boring fights from Maia, Gray and Lentz, the card felt like it dragged and turned a good show into a missable show.

According to White during the prelims, Maynard gets the next shot at Edgar.

The next fight should be Kimbo vs. Toney in a boxing match. Kimbo is reported to be pursing boxing's heavyweight division.

Yeah, that would make sense. For that matter, if diving and water polo are part of swimming and athletics (aka track and field) is one sport, then I would certainly hope that softball and baseball would be considered one sport, not two.
