After the first round it really look like Nelson was the one that had to cut 20+ pounds in 12 hours, he got so tired and lost so much pop in his punches and Hunt just got used to the timing of his right hands and when he ducked down for the overhand BANG!

Also if Meisha Tate thinks her win over a judo black belt means she has moved closer to a rematch with Rousey (that's if Meisha gets past Cat Zigano) then I think she'll be wrong. The last she was fighting, whilst built like a tank, had zero leverage due to the height and reach difference and showed zero appetite for striking, either throwing or receiving. Against Rousey that reach advantage will be zero as will the height and given the improved striking of Rousey, Tate's will have to continue to improve.

Still though she looked very nice in victory - something I can't say she will if and when she fights Cat, that girls is nasty.

Now the sun's set, I can legally, in the eyes of God, remind everyone that there's two of these tonight, and you've probably already missed the only reasonably timed one. Neither looks amazing though.

The European show was pretty good, four first round finishes on the televised card before a very even main event between Gunnar Nelson and Rick Story.

Every Scandinavian fighter on the televised card lost though, so it's pretty much just destroyed any hope for an up-and-comer from Europe that isn't Conor McGregor or Alex Gustafsson.

Stockholm show was great tonight, some wicked finishes and a good main event. First fight was class.

Wacky Brazilian card tomorrow night if anyone's interested. And you should be, if only for the fat-boy main event, which sounds like it could be a barn-stormer. Antonio Silva, who weighed in at the legal maximum for a heavyweight vs. Frank Mir, fighting something like 17 pounds heavier than his last fight. I'm predicted "no contest" due to a double heart attack after 30 seconds.

I thought it was a good fight. I wasn't really scoring it as I watched it at 4am or something but I enjoyed it.

Iaquinta is an absolute imbecile. He should have seen enough fights that end in bad decisions to realise that the crowd were booing the decision, not him. The only guess I have is that he was so convinced he won that he couldn't understand that, perhaps becuase the beating he got in his first round was knocked out of his memory.

Just a word about the next Fight Night, it's the first time the UFC have set foot in Poland and headlining is the re-match of one of the most memorable Heavyweight fights of the last decade with Gabriel Gonzaga taking on Mirko Cro Cop. Last time out the heavy underdog Gonzaga knocked out Cro Cop with one of Cro Cop's trademark head kicks and destroyed a potential superfight of Couture v Cro Cop in the process.

Co-main is Jimi Manuwa against Jan Blanchowicz, also on the main card is Scotland's Joanne Calderwood so it looks like they're treating Poland as a British show. There are 9 other fights and of those 18 fighters 13 of them don't have Wikipedia pages. There are some great names though such as Taylor Lapilus, Mickael Lebout and Damian Stasiak.

Only problem is I can't see this show schedule on BT or ESPN at any point.

He's the guy who smashed up his hotel room for fun after his last fight which probably cost him half of his winnings. The guy is a mong.

I've just had a look on the Freeview website and they're saying it's on Pick TV?

Have they had UFC before?

Yeah; for the briefest of split-seconds, I thought that was Harlem Heat Stevie Ray.

Gah, couldn't find it because it had "New" as the first word in the title.

I'm sure it's on there to increase visibility but there's no excuse for UFC shows not to be on an HD channel in this day.

The fight night card for Glasgow isn't glamorous at all. Though rob and stevie are fighting on it which will be good.

Hoping Calderwood gets added and then get a decent main event
