I found out too late that SportsNet was airing the prelim right before the main card, so I only saw the four main card fights.
I bet $5 on the McCall/Johnson fight (I only ever bet $5) and that fight angered up the blood to a serious degree. First, McCall clearly (IMO) won the fight, but the split decision went to Johnson. Then, after the show, it was revealed that there was a screwup in adding up the scores, and the fight was actually scored a draw - and because it was a tournament fight, it should have gone to a fourth round in the event of a draw.
In the other fights, McGee wasn't able to do much, Urishitani followed the same path to UFC glory as other Japanese fighters (which is to say he done got whooped), and the main event was two and a half rounds of Kampmann getting beaten on before pulling out a guillotine near the end of the round for the win.
Nous ne nous pouvons pas sortir. Waldburger and Pineda got robbed regarding Submission of the Night. Kampman may not be making major bank but if Pineda doesn't fight again this year he'll have made less from fighting in the UFC than I used to at the drive thru at Taco Bell.
Siler will fight Jim Miller after he drops to Featherweight, and will move up to fight Mayhem and then Dan after being cut and becoming overweight in say, OneFC or Bellator.
This was fun. MMA gets dull when it takes itself too seriously (though I know why it does so) and I enjoy the freak show fights (though I know why they're a bad idea). It's kind of surprising how not good at all Sapp really is.
