I wasn't going to order this show, but it may be one of the best impulse purchases I've ever made. This show ruled! I've seen cards with better fights, but this was possibly the show with the most fun fights that I've ever seen. Short, fast, high-action fights all over the place. Bigfoot got turned into a bloody mess making Cain look like a monster, Dan Hardy finally won one, Mike Brown won his retirement match, and oh yeah, Brock Lesnar showed up for Dos Santos/Mir. Meltzer said that Brock met with Dana and it didn't go well, but I haven't listened to the audio shows yet so I don't know anything beyond that.
