In the culmination of a really odd, but really fun, show, UFC Interim Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre dominated Matt Serra and unified the titles via a second round TKO due to knee strikes.

The crowd was really hot all night, including some really LOUD chants towards Kalib Starnes during his largely-boring "fight" with Nate Quarry that basically saw Starnes RUN AWAY from Quarry for three rounds. Quarry won the fight by unanimous decision, winning on one judge's card 30-24.

Overall, a fun show where the fans made even the not-so-good fights interesting.

did anyone go for the cheap pop of wearing a Habs jersey to the ring?

Not to the ring, but Forrest Griffin was shown in the crowd wearing one, with a goofy "oh, this thing? I just picked it out of my closet. You like it?" grin on his face when the crowd erupted.

The Nate Quarry fight sucked, but it sure wasn't Quarry's fault. I think Quarry ended up making more fans than if he'd gotten a knockout 90 seconds in.

Basically every fight was great except the Starnes/Quarry, and even that had plenty of entertainment. Thumbs way up.

Not to correct you on your own show...

Jonathan Goulet wore one and got a cheap pop for it. I'll let it go though, as he is himself French-Canadian (Victoriaville PQ) and certainly needed something to off-set that awful-looking URL he'd drawn into his crewcut with a Sharpie.

Holy shiners batman...that was a helluva lump under Serra's eye after round one. GSP reminds me of a white Anderson Silva, they're both so long and lanky, and can move so fast. I have seen GSP fight twice now, Hughes, now Serra, and the way he ran through both of them was very impressive. The way Serra acted after the fight was really impressive too...lots of class, I dont know if I would have been able to swallow my pride and give GSP the props like he did.

Bisping was impressive too...Quarry/Starnes was terrible. Starnes does have some nice CB skills, I've never seen someone backpedal the way he does.

Good one to make up for the lack of UFC lately on PPV. It's been a year since I started watching, and I'm really getting into it.

-D'oh. Left the bar right after the Serra fight, so I missed the Goulet fight (which apparently was fight of the night, so that was a smooth move on my part...)
-That was the best trunks/shirt combo ever. I especially love how it was American Guns (or something like that), and had a giant Australia in the middle.

I really enjoyed this show. This is the first UFC PPV in a while that I feel was money well spent. UFC *needs* to go back to Canada. That crowd was just awesome.

I wanted Matt Serra to get beat BAD but after that 4th straight knee to the ribs I felt sorry for him. I think it was a good stoppage and I'm glad the ref stepped in. I hurt inside just watching that replay.

Nate Quarry's Rocky IV speach was AWESOME.

I thought Kenny Florian was great doing play by play. I didn't know it at the time but he has a Bachelor's degree in communications from Boston College. They should have him and Joe Rogan calling all the shows. Goldberg's a shill.

St. Pierre is the very definition of a bag of cats.

He's shown us before that he can win the title. Now lets see him defend it in the same vein.

Rich Franklin continues to cement his position as the second best middleweight in the world. They need to book him vs. Henderson as the decider.

Bisping looked good, and didn't drop any F bombs for a change in the post fight. See how he goes against more recognised competition in the middleweight division.

I liked Quarry's running man impression during the third round. Not sure about the elephant man gesture though.

Good promos / interviews by Forrest and Rampage.

Great twists and turns in the Goulet fight.

Be interested to see how Jardine goes against Silva.

I so want BJ Penn to finish Sherk. The muscleshark has to be the dumbest nick in professional sports.

Ah that's right. Thank you.

I must have been already bracing myself for the impending tedium of that conflict.

Really? I'm looking forward to that fight more than anything so far this year besides Silva/Hendo obviously. Machida is fantastic to watch in the cage and Tito is exactly the type of guy I want to see him fight at this point.

A case of your mileage may vary I guess.

Machida's style doesn't really excite me and I'm not sure whether Tito has the hunger these days to really hunt for the finish. I see this one going the distance with a split decision from the judges.

That said, if it turns out to be a match of the night spectacle, then I'll be the first to recant that statement

So it looks like the Americans are well on their way to being humiliatingly whipped yet again in the Ryder Cup. This will make it 7 out of 10 losses since the format became USA vs. Europe. Four biggest goats of the day for the Americans.... 4)
