Ultimate Fight Night some quick thoughts...

The latest installment of Ultimate Fight Night was exciting with a couple favorites going down hard. TUF 2 heavyweight champion Rashad Evans completely dominates TUF season one light heavy runner up Stephan Bonnar for a full 3 rounds and gets the easy decision.

Crowd pleaser and iron chinned Chris Leben had his 5 Octagon win streak ended and goes down hard, getting knocked out in 49 seconds of round one to UFC newcomer Anderson Silva.

Silva may be new to the UFC but he's no MMA rookie, the Pride and Shooto veteran sports a solid 16-4 MMA record. I look forward to more exciting fights from Silva in the future.

Another favorite of mine Luke Cummo, loses by decision after 3 hard fought rounds against Canadian Jonathan Goulet. Most of the fight he spent on his back fending off Goulet's elbows and strikes. Late in the 3rd it looked as though Luke may pull out a submission victory with a rear naked choke, but Goulet was able to pry Luke's hands apart and the round was over moments later.

Between the TUF 3 Finals, UFN, and the up coming UFC 61 my brain will be on fight overload!
