    Some good results on this card:

    Poirier gets a bloody sub win over Pettis.
    Matt Brown KOs Diego Sanchez with a vicious right elbow.
    Andrei Arlovski wins a decision over Junior Albini.
    Clay Guida TKO's Joe Lauzon with several good combos followed by ground and pound.

    on the womens side a nice result as Nina Ansaroff gets a decision win over Angela Hill.

    That elbow from Brown was indeed vicious!

    I like Pettis, but his game relies on athleticism, and he just doesn't have it anymore. Poirier got a good win, but his chin is suspect.

    Arlovski fought a guy who looks like he could make WW if he half ass trained. I mean Albini was the favorite in that fight? How? He gets points for those shorts though.

    Sage Looked fantastic in his drop back down to LW. I am one of the people that thought he had no business in the UFC yet (let alone making 40/40), but he looked good. Future champ based on world class athleticism and dedication to his craft.

    Guida looked better than I have ever seen him, and was all class. UFC won't pay him though, so it's probably off to Bellator for a final title run.

    Overall great Fight Night. Great month so far overall after that awesome PPV. I'm still sad about my baby girl losing her belt to Thug Rose, but she will get it back.

    I also thought Guida looked great in his fight. He was athletic and putting together great combos. The striking has improved dramatically in the UFC over the past few years.
