Ya Akebono is useless in MMA. I couldn't believe he would sink low enough to do a sumo match at Wrestlemania against Big Show. People in Japan must think he is a friggin joke now, first MMA and then WWE.

In most match ups, Akebono wouldn't stand a chance... but I thought he could've beat Gracie if only he remained standing...

Screw the main event, I knew Shamrock had no chance against that young guy who pounded the crap out of him.

All I gotta say is that Forrest Griffin/Stephan Bonnar fight was spectacular!!! Honestly this probably one of the greatest UFC fight I've ever seen and it was a treat to see it on live TV. I knew Diego was gonna own Kenny but I never expected the Forrest/Stephan to be a match of the year candidate. I'm glad they both won contracts because they both showed a ton of heart and it was like an MMA version of Gatti'/Ward. This is exactly the type of fight the UFC needed to show on cable to the mainstream audience. Did you see how happy Dana White was? he was loving it because these guys are going to make him even more money.

Err, next time read the thread first :mad: specifically post #3 :twisted:

Like I said, I recorded it on Dec 31, but I, like many other people, weren't home that night... Got caught up in the New Years and just never had a chance to watch it...

It recently reaired on Bell and thought it was new...
