    I Want My $45 Back

    So I ordered the UFC fight for last night, and I have to say that I was very disappointed.

    The GSP-Penn fight was boring, Penn did nothing in rounds 2 through 4. Lyoto-Silva was decent, but I felt the best was the Guida-Daiz fight. I was happy to see Diaz lose, he is too cocky for my tastes.

    What did everyone else think?

    I think UFC is a grand waste of time/money and you should have known that before you spent your $45.

    I watched it for free on AFN...and it still wasn't really worth it. Every single round was won by decision except the last 2, and GSPs TKO was only because BJ realized his mouth was a lot bigger than his skill and quit while he was behind.

    I can't believe he said he was going to take the title from GSP, and then move up a weight class and take that title too.

    The UFC isn't fun to me anymore. The over hyped fights, and the boring shows suck. I will however be waiting for the Lesnar vs Mir fight. I hope Mir breaks his leg this time.

    I enjoy the UFC, but I didn't have any interest in the St Pierre/ Penn fight. I don't particularly like either fighter, but I really can't stand Penn. Talk about arrogance.

    Once upon a time a UFC fight may have been worth the $45...that time has long since passed sorry to say. It's amazing what "PC" will do to a perfectly good fight. Darn feel good hippie loving sums of peaches ruined a perfectly good sport.

    UFC has gotten lame as it has gotten bigger. It is just like boxing now, too much hype and too little substance. Its gone all corporate and big money now, and that has ruined it totally. The raw energy that used to drive it has been taken over by contrived WWE type presentations. I washed my hands of that sport a couple years ago.

    $45? Man, I usually head to my local Gentleman's Club for the UFCs. Free for the wifey and I to get in. She drinks for free and if the match is boring...I'm entertained.

Sometime, they're poor quality, recorder with a camera pointed at the screen. Most though, are good quality. But I wasn't familiar with this, so I'll give it a try.

    By the way, the UFC was the best in the very beginning, when it really was a "championship", with no weight classes, just everyone competing for the same prize. It was a lot of fun, watching Marco Ruas, a rather small Gracie Jiu Jitsu fighter, just cut Paul Varelans. a 6' 8" 300lb giant. Ruas kept kicking his legs, until he could no longer stand. A real David vs Goliath, with a similar outcome as the biblical story, except that Varelans was still alive, if beaten, at the end of the fight. And when you won your match, you then went to the next fight, against one of the winners of an early fight. And if you had to go 3-6 rounds to win your match, you'll have less energy for your next fight of the evening. It really showed off not only the fighter's skills, but their stamina and conditioning as well. Those were the days when the UFC was at it's best.
