Awesome night - Wanderlei's definitely back. BJ Penn wants to go back up to 170 and fight GSP again, I'm not surprised. It was a solid victory over Sherk. Machida - Tito was a typical Machida fight, and not Tito's fight at all. There were some great debuts - Goran Reljic, Yoshida, Palhares... the Soukoudju fight was okay, not great though. If he wants bigger fights at 205, he's going to have to be a little more impressive. Maybe it was his knee injury.

As always, looking forward to the next one! And the WEC bout this wknd between Urijah Faber and Jens Pulver - that could be an epic.

Yoshida and Pahlares were very impressive in their debuts. both with great submission victories. Machida's style just completely frustrated Ortiz. lots of counters and stick/move from Machida, Ortiz never got anything moving, except for that triangle at the end of rd 3. that was a real close one. here area some gif hilights from that night. *EDIT* way too many gifs for one post, so i linked most of them.

Tito's last chance triangle attempt. so close, yet so far.
