UFC 68 Highlights...

[spoiler]After losing two out of three fights to Ultimate Fighting Championship light-heavyweight champion Chuck Liddell and a tearful retirement in 2006, it was believed that Randy Couture had run out of chances.

But before a packed house at the Nationwide Arena on Saturday, the 43-year-old UFC Hall of Famer pulled another surprise, dominating Tim Sylvia for five rounds, scoring a shutout decision that earned Couture a third UFC heavyweight championship.
[/spoiler]

[spoiler]On the undercard, former middleweight champion Rich Franklin utilized his striking skills to punish Jason MacDonald and scored a takedown victory at the end of Round 2 when his opponent could not continue. And former welterweight champion Matt Hughes overpowered Chris Lytle on his way to a unanimous decision.[/spoiler]

thanks for the post sir vader, was able to watch this... ben a fan of UFc and been buying DVDs of previous UFC events... Randy Couture is the man! i know the losses to "The Iceman" is really disheartning but "The Natural" was able to redeem himself in a way that he really dominated Tim Sylvia... I think Sylvia got surprised that Randy fought toe to toe with him and i guss he thought that Randy will try to take him down... and i guess the left hook that hit Sylvia that brought him down really rattled him (and i thought it will be over on the first round)... Really a masterful work by captain America... now hoping to see a fight between him and Chuck Lidell for their respective titles eheh heres to hoping... ... :)

UFC 70 Recap

[spoiler]The ultra explosive Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic looked to make a smashing entrance into UFC, as the Croatian sensation, the former head of his national anti-terrorist squad, tangled on Saturday evening with Brazilian jiu jitsu specialist Gabriel Gonzaga in UFC 70-Nations Collide from the M.E.N. Arena in Manchester, England.

"Cro Cop" entered with the badass nickname and the badass rep, but left with a badass headache, as Gonzaga unleashed a high right leg to Filipovic's temple that put the Croat to sleep immediately at 4:51 of the first highly shocking round.

Thanks for the link Sir vadersaw this one as well, and everyone(but not all, cause Randy Couture was actually thinking upset and put his bet on Gonzaga) was counting gonzaga out then he went high with the kick that knock the lights out of Cro Cop, a lot of people was expecting that kick from Cro Cop and not from Gonzaga another upset was delivered just like last UFC69: SHOOTOUT when Matt "The Terror" Serra knocked out Georges St. Pierre with a flurry of punches to win the UFC Welterwieght Title last Easter Sunday. :)

same here.it looked like liddell didn't really have a game plan.i think he was relying on his one punch knock out, which he wasn't able to deliver. i also expected shogun to win also i got shocked that griffin submitted him

But Jardine's face was like hamburger during the entire fight. I have to take my hats off to him for enduring that punishment. Liddell also got walloped by those kicks to his mid-sections. I hope he bounces back soon.

The Shogun fight was also good. I think even Griffin himself, for a brief moment there, wasn't expecting things to turn out that way either.

im sure he can :lol: . i just think he thought he could we walk through jardine. i think he just needs to focus and train a bit harder and develop a newer game. as for the shogun/griffin fight , i agree with you on that.the thing is pride fighters are used to longer rounds and find it hard to adapt to the shorter faster rounds, but ofcourse this shouldn't be an excuse but a challenge to step up and bring it. the ufc getting a whole lot bigger :evil:
