I heard somewhere that Carwin might have the itch to come back, but I think he is too beat up to make it through a camp. He had some pretty major neck/back issues.

I don't know, it's probably unfair but I think of him as a carnival side-show.

I feel absolutely awful for Anderson. This was a nasty injury and likely the end for him. In some way I am glad he didn't get ko'ed, but this was not good either. Should he want to come back, I really hope they just let him box Roy Jones Jr and call it a career.

Rousey looked good, but what did we really expect. I am still waiting for Mcmann to come back, been predicting her for a long time to be the one to beat Ronda.

Travis Browne looked good and he is going to do the same to Werdum. Would love to see him fight a striker like JDS, but Cain will smash him too.

James Toney was a carnival side show. Brock, IMO, was legit. Sure he didn't like to get hit....who does? Did he deserve his title shot? Probably not, but he got it and made the most of it.

They need Brock back. With no GSP, Anderson, and Cain and Pettis out for at least half of the year it is going to be hard to stack cards. Heck, you have two title fights on the Super Bowl card (Aldo/Lamas and Cruz/Barao), then Hendricks/Lawler, followed by Jones/Teixiera. They need Brock back and they need Weidman/Vitor quick!

Yeah, say it ain't so!!!! Brock had his time, he should stay gone for his own health's sake. He came into the UFC at the perfect time and made lots of money. If he's smart, he'll block Dana's calls.

Sad for Anderson. I was rooting for Chris, but I didn't want to see Chris get the win like that.

Travis Browne - WOW - I hope he gets a shot at Cain.

I didn't hate him, but I didn't like him...a lot! He just hit me the wrong way from the start and I could never get past that.

Wouldn't he be at higher risk of re-injury after such a break?
