One day I'd like someone to explain to me the mystery of Delta Medallion Qualifying Miles. No clue how I don't get priority status by now.
Back in the States! Only took 12+ hours, 4 movies & a nap. And one connecting flight to go. Can't wait to get home.
My column on Hunt, Bigfoot & "The Draw" ...
FYI: No replacement will be sought for Condit. Joe Lauzon vs. Mac Danzig will now be the 4th main card fight on UFC on FOX 9.
Carlos Condit vs. Matt Brown is off. More evidence there is no Santa Claus?
Alright, I'm going to bed. If you have questions, tweet at me. I will try to answer them when I get to the airport in the morning. #UFC
Here's friends (and opponents) Dylan Andrews & Clint Hester meeting after their fight:
I saw Bigfoot Silva at the hotel bar a couple hours after the event. He was happy & in good spirits but I think he called it a night early.
Eight UFC fighters need hospital trips after Fight Night
A perfect ending for a perfect war: Hunt & Bigfoot brawl Down Under:
Justin Scoggins says he's the best in the world. "Don't sell yourself short. I'm not going to put a cap on greatness," he says. #UFC
Eight fighters went to the hospital for precautionary reasons after #UFCFightNight
Shogun said he would like a little time off after doing 3 camps back to back. He doesn't have anyone in particular he'd like to fight. #UFC
Mark Hunt & Bigfoot Silva are heading straight to the hospital, no presser for either. #UFCFightNight
Both Bigfoot and Hunt will get win bonuses for tonight. #UFCFightNight
Hunt & Bigfoot combined to land 305 of 463 thrown strikes in that war. #UFCFightNight
Judge Ron Papaioannou (sp?) & Barry Foley gave Hunt a 10-8 5th round to force the draw. Scorecard:
Antonio Silva and Mark Hunt fight to an incredible majority draw (48-47 Hunt, 47-47, 47-47) #UFCFightNight. I'm happy neither had to lose.
I am not allowed to cheer on press row, but standing ovation gents. Wow. Unbelievable fight, unreal heart. Outstanding. #UFCFightNight
This is crazy! Both guys are exhausted. Brisbane crowd is out of their minds. Does this drama come across over TV? #UFCFightNight
This fight is a rollercoaster of violence! #UFCFightNight
OK, maybe hold off on Mizugaki & Phan as the Fight of the Night winners. We got a developing situation here... #UFCFightNight
Mark Hunt's left leg got damaged by that Sivla kick. We'll see if he can continue, or if he's allowed to. #UFCFightNight
Place goes nuts as Hunt is intro'd by Bruce Buffer. Feels like a main event. Let's do it. #UFCFightNight
Fight recap: Vintage Shogun blasts Te Huna:
This is the first time Mark Hunt has been in a main event since he fought Fedor in PRIDE back in 2006. Crazy, right? #UFCFightNight
If Hunt (69% takedown defense) can keep it standing, I think he wins. On the ground, it's all Bigfoot. #UFCFightNight
Looks like we're getting back to live action in a minute here. Main event. Hunt. Bigfoot. Who you got? #UFCFightNight
Only one fight remaining. Gotta figure Shogun has KO of the Night locked up, Phan/Mizugaki FOTN, no subs yet. #UFCFightNight
Bruce Buffer saying the main event is 20 minutes from beginning. #UFCFightNight
Finish was at 1:03 of the first for Shogun. His first 1st rd KO since starching Forrest Griffin in 2011. #UFCFightNight
It was the left hook that did it. And James Te Huna can be happy that Shogun missed that follow up ground bomb. #UFCFightNight
Hold off on the Shogun career obits. One-punch KO for the old fella. #UFCFightNight
Apropos of nothing, the 10-10 score in Phan-Mizugaki was Rd 3, scored by Anthony Dimitrou. #UFCFightNight
For the record, Te Huna goes into the fight as about a -150 favorite. #UFCFightNight
I've said in the past every great fighter has one last moment of greatness. It's hard to deny he's aging rapidly. Is this Shogun's night?
Soa Palelei KO's Pat Barry:
That's a pretty lopsided win for Bader. Judges tally it 30-27, 30-27, 30-26 for him. #UFCFightNight
Our boys at
have the early numbers on landed strikes 103-6 for Bader over Perosh. Get that man some ice. #UFCFightNight
Perosh gets a nice hand from the Brisbane crowd for surviving that three-round mauling. #UFCFightNight
Let's just post a reminder here: Anthony Perosh asked to fight Ryan Bader. Carry on... #UFCFightNight
Palelei KO's Pat Barry with ground and pound. Barry got up, walked 10 feet and fell face first into the fence & mat. Scary. #UFC
Ref is booed loudly. Pat Barry looks at ref with eyes wide like, Yikes, man, what did you do? #UFC
Clint Hester gets awarded a TKO win at 5:00 of Rd. 2 following the injury to Dylan Andrews. #UFCFightNight
Fight is over. Waiting on official ruling but Andrews' right shoulder is dangling by his side. #UFCFightNight
Something appears to be wrong with Andrews' shoulder as he goes back to his corner between rounds. #UFCFightNight
Hester & Andrews are still really tight friends. They talk all the time. Will it impact fight? let's see. #UFCFightNight
Bethe Correia def. Julie Kedzie via split decision 29-28, 29-28, 28-29 #UFCFightNight
Correia being paraded around the cage on her corner's shoulders. Am I the only one who thinks that was a little too close to celebrate?
