hope the show is good tonight. Really looking forward to the UFC card. I do have a question though, why do some of you hate Ken Flo (and Chris Leben) so much? I've really enjoyed their fights of what i've seen.

Exactly. I'm starting to think this guy is one of those overly cocky guys you see on TUF... except he tried out for the show and got shot down... hence his unnecessary hate Dana White and UFC.
I can't tell you how many times I thought this myself.. I see him going to the tryouts, getting laughed out of them, and then we have the poster you see today...

How about Cyborg celebrating before the fight was over. Had she jumped on her, it would have been over seconds later, but that gave her more opponent time to recover.

Nice Guillitine by Shields

Jake Shields just called out the winner of St Pierre and Jon Fitch and he said he wanted to unify the titles. I highly doubt that would happen, and I think the Canadian would beat him too.

Gus: Frank, how do you keep your center of gravity when you're on a man that's bucking and rolling at the same time?

Frank: You gotta ride. You gotta open your legs up and you gotta ride, like you're riding a horse! That's what you need to do.

this is a hell of an entertaining fight.

On the replay you can see Kimbo jump up and down at the end. I noticed that Diaz was hesitant to go for the kill, so thankfully are no bull shit stoppages so far.

Good fights from Elite tonight.

Love Cyborg's early celebration.

I thought the Elite XC show tonight was actually good. All the fights that aired had finishes

I still think they need to cut down on the time between fights.

Also what happened to Shayna Baszler? She got tired pretty quick. Good thing they didn't have 5min rounds.

They needed to fill time with all the matches ending early, if they all go to a decision it wouldn't have been a problem.

I thought everything was much better, the production was much crisper. I hope Dana makes a play for Shields when his contract is up.

Baszler looked like she had no stand up game at all, Cyborg and Carano could be a great one IF Gina is in shape.

Kind of surprised they gave Anderson Silva so much love.

I wonder if Dana's gonna get pissed at the fact that Silva showed up to the 'competition'.

I doubt it, that's free advertising.

Nick Diaz is awesome. He says some of the most quotable lines in MMA next to Rampage. I loved his Pride 33 post fight comments about Gomi. He said something along the lines of, "little bastard started throwing all this crazy shit at me. Then alluva sudden he hits me with this hadouken punch and I got a bleeding vagina on the side of my face."

I like Diaz. He's talented as hell. He is kind of a knucklehead, and loses to people he shouldn't lose to on occasion. But he can beat the best if he's focused or really, really, high.

I'd like to see Shields Vs St Pierre. Your'e right though Dana would never let it happen.

I too doubt it. He was there to corner Rafael Feijao. Something that will continue to happen throughout MMA. I believe Cung Le did the exact same thing at UFC 86 and was mentioned by Joe rogan.

If Dana ever decides to enforce exclusive shit like not being able to corner fighers you train, I can see alot of negotiations breaking down when it comes time to sign them.

It was widely reported that Miss Dana sent out a memo to ZUFFA, LLC. contracted fighters ordering them NOT to attend PrideFC® 32: The Real Deal. If he does or does not see Affliction®, EliteXC®, etc., as big of a threat to their monopoly as PrideFC® once was is open to debate.
