The Lauzon/Miller fight was one of the best I have seen in awhile. Them and JDS/Cain were all heart....love seeing it even in a beatdown like JDS took.

I am pretty bummed that JDS lost, but Cain is a great fighter and a deserving and respectful champion, like JDS was. Just keep that title out of Overeem's hands!

You said just what I was thinking. Lauzon/Miller = FotN and possibly FotY?? My heart kind of broke for Junior, how he lasted for the next 4 rounds just shows his strength and heart. I pray he's ok. I think it's safe to say that we will see the definitive Velasquez/Dos Santos 3 in 2013.

Mostly a great night of fights. Lauzon/Miller... what an epic battle. The HW fight.. props to JDS for staying in there for five rounds. WOW. I thought he was gone in the first, and then the second... after that, I thought he'd win lol. Great performance by Cain though. Can't wait to see the finally CvJ III!

I had the same feeling...afterall he came out to the theme from Rocky, figured he would win in Rocky-like fashion at the end.

The fights tonight were awesome! Aside from the Leben/Brunson match-up (where they both just gassed), I thought they were all well-fought.
