great nite of fights .. i think this is the first time ever i watched every fight on a card ... pretty cool ... i think the title fight was great ... close fight .. i think bendo won ... rampage looked awful and he fought injured .. i think he just really wanted to fight in japan ... i really enjoyed the fukuda/cantwell fight ... the mark hunt fight may have been stopped early, but its hard to say ... kongo has this weird ability to recover fast, but when you have a guy like hunt standing over top of you ... its scary .. good stoppage ...

I agree with everything you said about the PPV fights (I didn't get to see anything before that since yesterday was the last game of VCU's regular season).
