Fight of the Night
UFC Says: Kalib Starnes vs Chris Leben
Fightlinker Says: Who the fuck at the UFC is on meth? That fight was the dog of the night, with Leben looking literally drugged and Kalib Starnes looking incompetent and clueless on the ground. Karo Parisyan vs Josh Burkman was clearly the fight of the night, a solid 15 minute battle.
Knockout of the Night
UFC Says: Quinton Jackson
Fightlinker says: Say what you will about the importance of Rampage’s win, but a good knockout is one that satisfies everyone. And if you’ve been reading the yokel blogs from mainstream morons you’ll know the Jackson knockout just didn’t do it for them. However, only hippies and communists didn’t love Houston Alexander’s brutal KO of Keith Jardine. It is possibly the most awesome KO I’ve ever seen in my life.
Submission of the Night
UFC Says: Din Thomas
Fightlinker Says: Oooh, Din landed an armbar against some virgin. Really impressive. No one gave me submission of the night when I triangled one of those mouthy grade 6 kids hanging around behind the Burger King. So why give this to Din? My pick: Wilson Gouveia’s choke out of Carmelo Marrero. Marerro was spazzing out so hard it looked like he was riding a bike.
