Aftermath – UFC 111: St Pierre vs. Hardy

The first major UFC of 2010 is in the books. I’m terribly sorry we did not get this up sooner, but we are all extremely exhausted over this weekend’s festivities. UFC 111 was the night before Wrestlemania and featured two championships bouts (although if you asked Brock, it was only one) LIVE from New Jersey. The show was primarily built around the return of Georges St. Pierre and a big heavyweight showdown between Frank Mir and Shane Carwin.

There has been some really boring UFC cards as of late, and this most certainly takes it’s place amongst them. I have to give Hardy credit. The guy is every bit as tough as I thought he was, but we all knew he was out of his depth going into this one, and that’s exactly how it played out. The only fun part of this PPV was the four minute demolition that was Carwin/Mir. Everything else ranged between mediocre and awful.

Boring. Boring. Boring. When is the next Strikeforce? The names may not be as big, but the fights are better than anything on the last few PPV’s and they don’t charge me to see them.

I will have to agree with the rest of the gentlemen. Other than Mir/Carwin and Rousimar’s disgusting flash win, there wasn’t much to see here. Carwin is a scary guy and I almost felt bad for Mir. Dan Mugliotta needs to be fired. Hardy showed a lot of heart, but the fight was very similar to the Fitch fight GSP had, where he thrashed the other man for 5 rounds, but you couldnt help but be surprised that Hardy hung on. Speaking of Fitch – he bored us yet again. Overall, the show was pretty much a stinker – as a lot of the recent shows have been. What’s going on here?

We’ll see in Abu-Dhabi!
