Some of you may have noticed that the site has undergone some changes lately. Most noticeably, the banner ad at the top of all the pages is gone. I really just didnt think it worked with the site, and I didnt want to spam you guys with ads, so I decided to remove it. Also, I am in the process of relocating the martial arts school listing. They will no longer be located in the forums, but here on the main blog site. This is a slow and painful process, so bear with me if it takes a while to complete. I’ve also changed up how comments work. You used to have to go to the forums to post comments on stories. That is no longer the case. You DO still need an account on the forums to post a comment, but you will be able to post them directly here, just like you can on any other blog. I hope you guys enjoy these changes, and stay tuned for more!

Last night was UFC 100, and given the special nature of the event I am going to do things a little bit differently. Yes, I am still going to post up the results, but this time I am going to add a very small amount of commentary to go with the main card fights. Now, for the results:
Gugerty beats Grice with a submission in Round 1.
Lawlor beats Dollaway with a submission in Round 1.
Kim beats Grant with a unanimous decision.
Jones beats O’Brien with a submission in Round 2.
Miller beats Danzig with a unanimous decision.
Coleman beats Bonnar with a unanimous decision.
Akiyama beats Belcher with a split decision – This fight was interesting. I thought Akiyama clearly dominated the match, but apparently not all of the judges agreed. This was a fantastic fight.
Henderson beats Bisping with a KO in Round 2 – I was really disappointed with this fight. I was rooting for Bisping, but he spent the whole fight trying to escape Henderson, and he just didnt seem prepared.
St Pierre beats Alves with a unanimous decision – This was not a fight. GSP demonstrated that he could take Alves down at any time he wanted. All Alves could do was prevent the submissions, but he had no chance of winning at any time.
Lesnar beats Mir with a TKO in Round 2 – Mir demonstrated in this fight that he doesnt have the capacity to learn/adapt to the fight. In the first round, he let Lesnar ground and pound him viciously. In the second round, he did the exact same thing. His loss was no surprise.
Fitch beats Thiago with a unanimous decision – This was the worst fight of the night. There was effectively no striking, and even during the grappling there was hardly any action.
