    Chris Lytle should of got sub of the night. Im sure Lesnar got huge payday as is and I think Lytle not only could use that money more but think he derserved it more.

    Its nice how 4 people instead of 2 got the FOTN Award. I don’t think Lesnar shouldn’t of got SOTN Award, Leben shoulda got it. Then again, armtriaingles are harder to pull of than Triangle chokes :P

    Lesnar might agree with you. But then, has there ever been a greater combe-back submission?

    Also, unlike the Arona slam, this was not a head-but. It was a forearm choke slam. I don’t think their heads collided.

    Why is it hype? He deserves respect for what he’s accomplished.

    I agree! Lytle’s submission seemed much more technical to me. Also, Lesnar made plenty of money on this fight. They should have thrown a little Lytle’s way.

    Dana?? Chris Lytle’s sub is not sub of the night? I think there is a little favoritism.

    I think Romero should get sub of the night. He did the same sub as Lytle except he was getting his ass kicked AND he nearly broke Petruzellis arm.

    Brock didn’t even have the 4th best sub of the night, and why you would reward that pathetic gorilla for such a horrible performance I have no idea. I mean for any serious MMA fan Brock just dropped on the HW rankings.

    Shane proved all us Brock doubters right tonight as he manhandled Brock in the first round, but because Shane doesn’t know how to pace himself and has never gone more then 1 round in a fight before he totally crashed which allowed Brock to win. No one in their right mind was impressed by Brock.

    Finally someone who knows wtf they are talking about.

    Brock showed nothing on his feet, defense or offense, nothing when he was on his back, it was a terrible performance technically. His heart impressed me though, he didn´t seem to be thinking about R1 when he went out in R2.

    no, the arm triangle is kinda simple. in fact its piss easy. an actual triangle is much harder. its so much more awkward to catch the opponent
