    Fight niiiight! My picks:

    Demian Maia vs. Jake Shields: Maia by submission snuggle
    Dong Hyun Kim vs. Erick Silva: Silva by stoppage
    Matt Hamill vs. Thiago Silva: Silva by stoppage
    Joey Beltran vs. Fabio Maldonado: Maldonado by decision
    Rousimar Palhares vs. Mike Pierce: Pierce by stoppage
    Raphael Assuncao vs. T.J. Dillashaw: Dilla-dogg by decision

    I can't watch the fights via the usual sources, the UFC is being extra diligent in closing stuff down, even for such a flat card.

    Shields did much better than I (or anyone else) gave him credit for, erm, credit to him. Hope Matt Hamill retires now. If Daley can be given the cold shoulder after the Koscheck fight, Palhares ought to be kicked out into the wilderness after that submission. Permanently. That could have ended Pierces' career. About the fourth time he's done that now. Disgusting fighter.

    He should be let go by the UFC. Utterly unlikable guy. Loved that Lombard knocked him out.

    Really wish he gets cut.

    Just watched the card -- my overriding thought is that Palhares is absolutely disgusting. I just wish he'll hurry up and get caught on the juice so they can throw him out of the UFC.

    Rest easy guys, his walking papers have been very much issued.

    I've rewatched it half a dozen times and he definitely saw the referee and decided to give it one last crank. What a psycho. Glad he's gone.

    Forgot to say. Dillashaw is the Alpha Male chain breaker! Fighting in Brazil if you are American is a nightmare.

    It's the fact that he's done it several times now, despite tapping or the referee- there's no basic level of respect for the fellow competitor, just rubs me up the wrong way.

    Suitable viewing given the circumstances

    Its not just the length of time he held it for. If he simply held it, there could've been a case for him.
    What can't be argued is that he already knew he had it in for his opponent to tap (8 times before the ref jumped in), so there was no reason whatsoever to give it an extra crank, let alone to give the crank when the ref jumps in.

    That extra crank sealed the deal.
    Plus he has previous and is a juice head. Being a juice head should automatically mean a ban as he's a drugs cheat.

    Has anyone got a stream source for the Shamrock interview Bound By Blood that was on Spike USA the other day?
    Really like to watch it, too lazy to find a torrent, if there even is one...

    @TearYouAsunder If I was ever in a situation where the solution is "right, you two lie down there, and you, give your foot to Palhares and we'll work from there" you wouldn't see me for dust.

    Not so much a broken nose as a BROKEN NOSE. Ouch!

    Can't stand "Just Bleeders". The worst thing of MMA.

    I watched the 166 weigh-ins, what a great card.
    Is it just me or does Joe Rogan get a bit shrill when he's calling them? It actually slightly hurts my ears and I need to turn the volume down a bit!

    Fight niiiiiiiight!

    Winners: Cain, Nelson, Melendez, Gonzaga, Dodson.

    The prelims look good too -- I can't call Marquardt vs Lombard or Boetsch vs Dollaway.

    The big KO is possible! If Nate decides to circle away and jab or go for takedowns he'll get the decision, but I expect them to both come out swinging. It's got first round finish written all over it.
