    Discuss while watching the fights.

    That was a beautiful KO by Matt Brown of Mike Swick. I definitely called that one right! Brown has some thunder in those hands... plus, I never cared for Swick that much.

    I'll pick BJ Penn in this next fight... I've always been a BJP fan, despite the number of times he has disappointed me by not coming into the octagon in shape or having taken his training seriously.

    I'm a BJ fan too. Hope he causes an upset but I don't think he will.

    By the way - I'm stuck with text updates. Booo :(

    MacDonald clearly won that first round with vastly superior striking. BJ needs to get the fight to the ground.

    That's what it says on Sherdog too.

    Jordan Breen scores the round 10-9 MacDonald
    TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 MacDonald
    Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 MacDonald

    Sherdog says MacDonald dominated the second round and Penn's busted up.

    Jordan Breen scores the round 10-8 MacDonald
    TJ De Santis scores the round 10-9 MacDonald
    Chris Nelson scores the round 10-8 MacDonald

    Damn, this sounds like a good fight.

    Things are looking really bad for BJ after that second round. My heavy bag moved better than he did in the second half of that round after eating tons of shots to the body.

    I thought Herb was close to stopping the fight at one point.

    That's what happened with Diaz as well. He got totally gassed and spent the later rounds getting picked apart.

    MacDonald's striking was VASTLY superior to BJ's. He dominated BJ in that fight. At least BJ made it to the decision... but that fight wasn't close.

    Sounds like MacDonald dominated from start to finish. Did Penn look terrible or was MacDonald just much better? I reckon MacDonald is gonna be a future champion. He's said he may move up a weight to do so.

    MacDonald just looked that much better.

    30-26, 30-26, 30-27

    Next up - Shogun vs Gustafsson. I'm a big fan of Shogun so I'm gonna stick with the old guard in this one :)

    Same here... and unfortunately, I am probably going to be as successful calling this fight as I was the last... :(

    At least Matt Brown won, so no matter what, I won't go "oh-fer" in the fighters I am rooting for.

    I might be biased, but I think Shogun won that first round!! Not sure why Gustaffson hasn't been penalized for repeatedly grabbing the fence.

    Shogun landing some shots to start the second!!

    Wow... great round. Both landing a lot of shots in that second round. I'll go with my bias and give the round to Shogun!!
