    A little thread for those of you who are watching UFC 158.

    It's been a great card so far. Antonio Carvalho was very unlucky there. He was certainly under pressure and he could have been punched a few times...but he was defending himself intelligently. He was unlucky the referee stopped it so early.

    Wow. Jake just put it down. Stinky leg! Nailed him right against the post.

    Condit vs Hendricks...SO hyped for this one.

    Yeah...Nate came up as if he wasn't hurt...it was the right call. He wasn't defending himself..looked like he was going to go to sleep.

    Great start to condit and hendricks. Hendricks came out swinging like a madman.

    This is a great match up. Condit has taken some big punches but hasnt been rocked.

    I's say hendricks is slightly ahead in the judges eyes so far. Not much between them though.

    A lot of respect between both of them, before and during the fight.

    I honestly don't know which way it is going to go... I think Hendricks might edge it due to his takedowns etc. No result would surprise me.

    Wish that was a 5 rounder!

    29-28 unanimous. I think that was the right result. Full respect to Condit. Heart of a lion.

    I want to see the fight again. It's a hard one to call. Whenever Condit started stringing together punches or knees together, Hendricks would either return or go for the takedown. So Hendricks was never under real pressure. Likewise, Condit never looked in trouble on the ground....so I don't know. I've never been a fan of someone scoring points for take downs if they don't do anything on the ground.

    Solid round by GSP. Total control. Could be a 10-8 round.

    Sam again. I'm surprised Nick wasn't more aggressive in the last minute (when he got up). GSP is being smart and staying out of any brawling.

    GSP wins another round....but Nick caught him a few times near the end. He will need to watch he doesnt fall into a boxing game with Nick. It's the only area where he has a risk of getting caught.
