but no mma fight is ever as exiting as watching a great boxing match
I hate to disagree, but have to!

IMO, is the other way around with MMA being way more exciting than boxing. Mixed martial arts involve, like it's name suggests, a combination of many disciplines including boxing were, precisely, the clash of styles between the fighters is what makes it SO much more unpredictable than boxing, were you will probably see half the upsets and the superior boxer will prevail most of the times (not always, I know there are many notable examples). The technique and strategies involved in MMA are extremely important, it's great to see fighters that have a base in very different martial arts trying to impose their will. Unfortunately, I agree in the sense that it could be getting a bit more boring with the inclusion of so many wrestling-based ones... for me, there's nothing better to see in MMA events than a wrestler being submitted by a jiu jitsu fighter or judoka. Awesome moments.

Great taste with the Spider, he's second to none IMO.

Yeah came as quite a shocker! Everyone was talking about it today in the office for our men's magazine. Seemed like Silva was taunting Weidman pretty well, but Weidman keep his cool like a man should and went in for the hook and win. All in all, awesome night!

Silva finally gets punished for his showboating. Gotta say though, the way he dodged most of Weidmans shots was impressive until he finally got caught

spider's clowning is almost as bad as his takedown defense . frankly, i don't think he wants any part of a jon jones megafight. he knows he'd get floored in about 10 seconds, followed by a vicious barrage of elbow strikes to end the fight via tko all under a minute.

Anderson Silva acted like a fool, and you don't do that in MMA. He lost because of his arrogance not his skill.

Jon Jones and Alex Gustafsson went five rounds, with Jones retaining the belt although some people think Gustafsson was robbed in the decision. Didn't see it myself, so I'll refrain from commenting.

A rematch seems to be on the cards, hopefully I can catch it this time. Would be really nice for a fellow Northern-European get the title .

Jones won 4th and 5th, Gustafsson the 1st. 2nd and 3rd were close. 48-47 for Jones was the expected decision by the judges in the end imo.

People not watching MMA/UFC anymore?

UFC 167 was pretty incredible.

It's on at awkward times... But I follow the results! Seems like it was another close one for the champ after the Jones/Gustafsson fight.

Yeah it was, he didn't win it really, was a pretty good match though.

Not sure which will be at least the title match of the year, this one, Weidman-Silva or Jones-Gustafsson. Of course there is still Johnson-Benevidez and Silva-Weidman 2 to come.

You don't need to watch it when it's on live, soon after it's on the net.

weidman knocked silva almost unconscious with a short right hook to the ear in the 1st rd and completely dominated the fight...again. he's simply too fast, too strong, too ring savvy, and dare i say too talented for the brazilian clown.

r.i.p silva.

Tough to see one of the greatest, if not the greatest, go down like that. That was probably his last fight. Grats to Weidman, seems like a decent guy, though he lays the Jesus stuff on a bit thick (as do many other American athletes )
