Yeah Bisping moved from light heavyweight to middleweight so that is the reason behind the leaner look. I think this was his third or fourth fight in this weight class.

As for Lesnar;
* Gabriel Gonzaga? KO'd Cro Cop but got KTFO by Shane Carwin
* The winner of Shane Carwin and Cain Velasquez? Both are on unbeaten streaks - 10 straight and 6 straight respectively. Carwin vs Lesnar would be interesting as both guys are around about the same size.
* Return of the Nog?
* Cheick Kongo?

IMO Lesnar's size and strength is going to be a hassle for a number of UFC heavyweights. He doesn't have to stay on his feet if he can simply bull rush you and ground your face into mince meat. I think guys that just make the HW division may think about dropping down to LHW.

i'd have to watch the fight again, but i don't think his takedowns were that impressive. Frank was owning him on the feet, and the only reason he got the takedown in the second round was cos frank went for a knee while lesnar had a single leg. My prediction is a big guy with decent takedown defence will ktfo Lesnar...

He didn't rush like in the first match, but I'm pretty sure Lesnar got a takedown/trip in the first round. I wouldn't count Mir's jumping knees as a takedown for Lesnar - I thought the first had him.

I'd like to see the Carwin/Lesnar match.

Spoiler:
Silva/griffen match was a strange one......both fighters very close for most of it....I'm guessing Griffen was rocked by the first hit seemed off & slow compared to Silva who was dodging everything... haven't watched florian/penn yet

Just in case others haven't heard or seen the results
Spoiler:

* I've watched the Silva/Griffin fight twice now and I still don't understand Griffin's game plan. Why stand in front of a noted striker and why throw orthodox strikes? Tip of the hat to Silva for the crazy head movement and insane standup skills, but I wish he'd stop with his mid-beatdown antics. If you're going to knock a dude down, then finish it - this being all nice and offering to pick the dude up is total BS and IMO is worse than Brock's recent post-match antics.
* Very PO'd with the early stoppage in the Saddollah/Hendricks fight. I can handle stoppages when fighters aren't defending themselves or are taking huge damage. Hendricks only threw 2 punches in the scramble and Saddollah was trying to get back up on both occassions. I hope Saddollah has a better time trying to cut weight for his next match - watched the weigh-ins over the weekend and he came in 5 pounds under what he needed to.
* Good to see George Sotiropoulos in the cage again - another big weight cut there.
* BJ vs Ken-Flo. Wasn't surpised by the result, BJ looked hungry in all the pre-match interviews and workouts.

UFC 102 - Couture vs Nog, Jardine vs Silva (Thiago variety) and Vera vs Soszynski.

Sweet. I've watched the odd StrikeForce/EliteXC bout here and there. I think they've got an event on over the weekend - Fedor vs Rogers.

Talk about a quick result. I don't think I even made it halfway through my vegemite and cheese toastie before the ref stoppage.

I think if it was later on in the round, then the ref may have given Jones Jnr a chance to continue on. Jnr's legs were wobbly and I'd rather see a fight end early rather than see a fighter take unnecessary damage.

Yup cancelled all plans for Sunday. Should be a decent show. I hope Wandy KTFO Bisping - maybe even finish with a flying Hendo forearm.

Yeah was happy to see that advertised.....when I was in canada over xmas they would show the preliminary fights for free, then the ppv for the last say 4 fights (which is all you get here when you order a ppv for $60)(well a few years ago might have changed recently)......and then about 2 weeks later they would show the whole ppv for free...

Yeah they get pretty decent deals in North America. I remember Hooters used to show the fight and you didn't have to pay a cover charge. Pretty sure it was the same for Shark Club in Canada. MMA is on like 24/7 in Canada.

Looks like Ten/One HD will be covering the next UFC event (Vera vs Jone) at the end of March - I hope they do the same with the smaller UFC Fight Night PPVs.

Yeah it was a decent card. Crowd sounded awesome. Hoping to get a seat at an upcoming PPV (here or abroad) one day.

Yeah, I watched it on Monday night. Cool

Not a very good event, but some odd things happened there.

First time I ever saw a guy get punched in the EYEBALL. pale

Also what I believe was an MMA first, a tap-out due to elbow strikes to the thigh. Neutral

EDIT: It's on again tonight at 11pm, for all who missed it.
