I would have thought they'd give Kimbo and houston FOTN, I mean, it was very exciting at time, but I am glad to see Edgar get it. I also agree with Roy and Bocek getting the bonuses.

You've got to be joking on the Houston/Kimbo fight. :)

Glad Nelsen got paid 25K for having to live in the house for however many weeks that was, knowing his real house was only miles away. That would suck. I'd want to jump the wall.

Now he can pay his mortgage. I'll get to see him next week at the Tapout sales and I'll ask him how he's able to keep his caloric output so high. It's amazing.

I agree. Nelson and Kimbo should have been embarrassment of the night. I'm always amazed when fighters come into fights totally out of shape.

Out of shape? I haven't seen the fights yet, but Big Country looked better then I've seen him in a long time at the weigh-ins. Man, I'm glad I don't watch TUF; the ZUFFA editing machine has sure turned a lot of people away from Big Country fandom. I've liked the guy since the IFL and were it not for the fact that Dana was bashing him every chance he got I think most people would probably share the same feelings.

My guess is Dana and Company are going to go out of their way to put Nelson in some really tough match-ups early one and try to push him out of the picture quickly. Most fans will likely rejoice in watching him get beat and subsequently banished. Sad really.

Didn't see the Nelson fight, but the other two were the only two good fights that I saw on the card last night, so good picks.

Sorry, I meant Houston/Kimbo... not Nelson. I thought Nelson was going to win the show from the beginning. The Houston/Kimbo fight was a complete embarrassment.

i enjoyed the houston/kimbo fight it was much better than expected. kimbo displayed some new skills and houston displayed the new gameplan he learned from khalib starnes.

i think kimbos in the right place with ATT. dont see any viable competition for him at heavyweight though.

Props to Nelson for the win. i dislike him a little less for coming out to wierd Al "Fat" and pulling out a big KO.
