    Got to meet Tim Sylvia as kid at my brothers amateur fight Sylvia actually reffed the bout and he gave me a free autograph and picture, and this was all why he was still the world champion, super nice guy I’ll never have anything bad to say about him.

    If you listen closely at 4:43, you can hear Rico Rodriguez’s elbow break Randy Couture’s orbital bone (eye socket). It’s a sickening thud/crack combo. Randy immediately screams in pain and verbally taps to Big John McCarthy.

    Holy Cow! The ref could have saved Randy a lot of head damage by stopping that fight with Brock at a reasonable time WAY before he actually stopped it. I HOPE HE NEVER COMES BACK TO REF IN THE UFC HE'S INCOMPETANT.

    It seemed like Lesnar would forget at times that hes no longer a cheesy WWE wrestler and that hes supposed to try to hurt his opponents. Couldnt take a punch without cowering up, those little baby forearms where he was just pushing the guys face. He didnt lift his arm anywhere near enough to generate any force. Lol like wtf was he thinking at times?

    One things for sure, it was never consistent champion and the title seemed to bounce around every couple of months. Sad seeing Randleman (RIP) for the fact he was a pioneer that never got to see what MMA has become. Cain losing to Junior 1st time, broke my heart.

    @112358 853211 lmao “he only beat Francis because Francis lacked a fundamental part of the fight game required to be a UFC champion (hence why there are 5 rounds)” Stipe was literally ground and pounding looking for the ref to stop the fight in the fourth round. Obviously Francis (with his improvements) beats stipe 9/10 times and is a future GOAT, but stipe literally beat Francis so bad that he was shellshocked for his Derrick Lewis fight and didn’t engage.
