Outside of the 2 main fights, the secret of the card's success (or at least ADDED success) was putting CHRIS LYTLE on the card. That guy is always one of, if not the, most exciting fighter these days because of his KO presentation for the fans. His Jiu-Jits is badass too. He has 2 subs in these last 2 fights against formidable opponents.
The main event sold itself, and having Leben on the card was going to make it exciting as well, even though most still wanted to see Wanderlei.
I flippin' knew Leben would pull it off. Like I said on the other thread, he isn't going to be a threat for the title imo, but he will beat a lot of guys with his ever growing maturity. If he loses his chin, then he is dust....so he is really on a timer until that happens. I used to hate watching Leben fight, but have found myself wanting him to win these last couple of fights.
Leben is looking much better physique-wise....HGH?
Yeah, Carwin blew his wad. His stamina was very disappointing. He lost the fight on his own by not being conditioned. He was just dead at the end of the first round and the second obviously.
That being said, Brock needs to keep working on his guard, and also his stand-up. He does have weaknesses. It's just a matter of somebody hurting him before he gets one punch in. Hats off though, he showed he had a chin.
