I was very disappointed with the Uriah match , I hate when things like that happen. Mike knew that he was going to be in trouble. Even with elbows uriah was on his game. Very upset with injuries.

I was surprised with the fight too. I hope Urijahs hand can be repaired. But you do have to give it to Brown he beats urijah twice now and that isn't an easy feat. He is a strong guy.

I guess that the problem for me is , if his hand was good then would brown have been able to get off that many shots. I do think that they are going to be the top two of the division, ofcourse aldo has looked good too. But brown and faber have gone all night. Aldo has been quick.

yeah i understand what your saying last time he caught urijah and this time other than the first round urijah was without most of his striking and grappling game making it very difficult for him. But urijah is a warrior. He kept trying things and made it through the whole fight. I am sure we will see these two fight again in the future after urijahs hand heals etc. But brown is a champ that was a very hostile environment for him to defend his title in but he took the fight in urijahs hometown. He believed in himself enough because there are a lot of doubters going against him. will be very interesting to see what happens next.

hey how about how sad it was to see Jens Pulver lose in 33 seconds. i think he pretty much said he was retiring in the post interview.

and the look on Josh Grispi's face after the fight, i've never seen a guy so depressed to win. i saw an interview where he said backstage, he asked Jens for his autograph. he mentioned that Jens was someone he looked up to, and he felt bad about beating him. "i'd boo me too, if was watching me fight Jens. i love the guy".

yeah that was something. I am guessing urijah will be out for 6 months to a year. I am really looking forward to the upcoming bowles fight.

Mike Brown is a stud. He was constantly trying to finish that fight. Everytime it went to the ground he was looking for a choke but Urijah pushed through it. Im very impressed with Brown after seeing both his title defenses. I hope he keeps the title for a long while. Which I think he'll keep it for a bit. I dont think Aldo can beat Brown but in MMA anything can happen.
