Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

UFC 90 Bonuses + Videos

What a bizarre night. If, like me, you can’t quite make sense of what you saw last night, the video above gives you another chance to sort through it all. What does it say when Bruce Buffer provides more intensity than the main event?

Bonus awards for UFC 90 were $65,000 a piece and it played out like this:

Fight of the Night: Sean Sherk and Tyson Griffin
Submission of the Night: Spencer Fisher
KO of the Night: Junior Dos Santos

Awarding bonuses this time around must have felt like a strange process. There were only two submissions (Thales Leites‘ choke of McFedries was not impressive enough somehow) and one knockout, and picking a fight of the night had to be a lot like picking a favorite Arena League football team. Apparently 15,359 people showed up to be disappointed by the most unsatisfying UFC in recent memory, with a live gate totaling $2.85 million.

Dos Santos’ vicious knockout of Werdum is after the jump, along with the so-called fight of the night and more.

Fabricio Werdum vs. Junior Dos Santos

Sean Sherk vs. Tyson Griffin

Thales Leites vs. Drew McFedries

Peg Leg,

What in the fuck are you talking about? I never said a word about your contributions to society not being worth anything, as I recall I never said anything to you. I don't work at a desk as a matter of fact I perform the most dangerous construction job in America but thanks for assuming. As for your Military service, it commendable if you really are or were in the Military and gave your limb for your country, I have a lot of friends in the Military many in the Special Forces many of whom dont attack random strangers on the internet without making any sense. CAN SOMEONE POINT OUT TO ME WHERE I ATTACKED HIM OR HIS SERVICE TO HIS COUNTRY?

Does anyone know the name of the song that was playing when Sean Sherk was walking in?

Main event aside, that was some great fights! The worst referee i have ever seen in the Grey Maynard fight. And the worst crowd to ever stumble into and MMA event. I think they picked that dude out of the crowd and let him ref.

can't we all just get along?
To CP... WTF?- October 26, 2008 at 11:04 am
Are you serious? There were a couple of very good fights on that card, ironically, the ones that were predicted to be the the worst! I found myself screaming at the TV to all of the idiots in the crowd booing the whole time because they clearly don't understand MMA, and then I read this and realize you may very well be one of the crowd!

@ Goddamn TUF, I live at 9161 Maple drv., Tinley Park (Southwest side, Chicagoland area) -- look it up. If you're such a persistent bitch (don't take that as a compliment), just friggin ring my doorbell. The fights pissed me off enough, but an internet douche pisses me off a bit more. Make sure to wear your hairjell, haha.

To Peg Leg: go fuck yourself you Imperialistic Piece of Garbage. You didn't fight for your country, you fought for cold hard cash you worthless piece of shit. It's idiots like yourself that make the world so bad. And will you fight for your family against your fucking paymasters when the Nortth American Union isd announced, or will you spread your cheeks and round up your own citizens at gun point,the same way you did to the innocents in Iraq? Man I wanna fuck you up. Fucking cripple still defending this corrupt system. I WANT YOU DEAD YOU MERCENARY SCUM.

''your fucking father''....

Well when I become I drug dealer like you maybe I'll afford to own a place to myself. But I just did my 3rd tour in Iraq where our humvee was hit by an E.I.D. and I lost my left leg. I sold my house and my kids had to move out with their mom. I am currently staying at my grandmothers house, one of my few family members that I know of. Since I was adopted at the age of 3. I gave my leg for freedom if thats what you want to call it. I guess I should of got a desk job like you so I don't have to worry about bombs and bullets killing me. Maybe if you have some respect you will realize without the army your desk job might not exist.

Anderson Silva now equals Kalib Starnes...running around the ring like some gay hair dresser. Sure, he is a much better fighter than Cote, but what the hell was that? If he is lacking motivation to fight, to defend his title, then he should retire. Hell, Cote won the first round, the second round was a toss up but probably Silva's. Really, is this guy the best fighter in the world...I doubt it.
I want my money back- October 26, 2008 at 3:20 am
I was there and I left with blue balls. What a disappointing way to end the night. Silva, who I normally really like, was acting like a complete ass clown out there. The crowd was less than happy.

@ Phunnybonz

"OBI, I think at times during the fight Silva was being evasive in a tactical way but I don’t think it’s true for all of the fight."

Agreed, but frankly, based on past experience, Silva had Cote sized up and measured at the one minute mark. Maybe I'm wrong, but Silva could have pressed the fight and taken Cote out pretty much anytime after the 1:30 mark of the first round. That's just my opinion. Silva was being evasive in a tactical manner, but why? He had Cote. Nothing against Cote. He came to fight and he gave his best. But frankly, Silva is a better fighter than Cote.

"The major point I’d like to bring up regarding Silva compared to Lyoto, or Ali or anyone else that has been brought up as showboating, is that for Lyoto - being evasive is how he ALWAYS fights. Ali did showboat but he did it ALL the time, and no I didn’t like it then either. The way Silva behaved last night was not characteristic of how he normally fights."

Damn straight it wasn't characteristic!

Dude, I understand. Machida is "characteristicly evasive". That's his style. It works for him, so why would he change it? I guess my point was, people bash Machida for the same style of fighting that Silva displayed. Obvoulsly, it's effective. I was really just trying to draw a comparison to Machida.

As far as "showboating" goes; sorry, Silva offering the hand was a total disrespect to Cote. There was nothing friendly about that. Please IMMEDIATELY refer to the Silva vs Lutter bout where Lutter was on his back trying to lure Silva to the ground and Silva responded with a a foot stomp. IMO, he was trying to embarass Cote into standing back up and playing the game Silva wanted to play. Total control tactics. Anyone who thinks that Silva was offering a "hand of friendship" to Cote and being "gentlemenly" to Cote, go here:

Check out the 4:40 mark and you'll see what I mean.

Overall, it was a really weird fight. That wasn't a version of Anderson Silva that I have ever seen before. I may not be the Nostradamus that "Mayhem420" is, but something was behind Silva's approach to this fight and I'm really curious to find out what it is. I'm just shooting in the dark, but Silva proved that he can hurt the UFC as much as he can help them them.

Think about it.

ROFL I fucking love TUF Guy.

Why didn't you guys go kick his teeth in? I am sure he was patiently waiting.
Jugger- October 26, 2008 at 2:39 am
This card left me with a major case of blue-balls but I must admit that it did 3 things to me that I never thought would happen:

1) I found myself rooting for Sherk. Never dreamed I'd type that sentence.
2) I found myself rooting for Koscheck. Never dreamed I'd type that sentence.
3) I found myself wishing A. Silva would stop acting like a epileptic moron and get violent. He's always been a bit of a showboater even back in his Pride and Cage Rage days, (was it in his fight with Curtis Stout that he intentionally dropped his hands and let Stout wail on his chin?) but last night was way, way, way overdone. He crossed a line. Those of you saying, "That was his gameplan, he was trying to confuse Cote. You don't know anything about MMA!" are cracking me up. Silva's always done stuff like he did last night, just to a much lesser degree. It's not a gameplan, it's typical Silva quirkiness.

Silva is a genuinely nice guy and I don't think he was trying to disrespect Cote as much as he was trying to "put on a show." Obviously, some of you enjoyed it. I didn't. I like Anderson and always enjoy it when he mixes in a little showmanship (I thought his bobble-head dancing in his second fight with Franklin was hilarious)... but 2 entire rounds of showing off? Ugh. I hope he brings his briefcase and gets back to business next time he enters the Octagon.

If I see one more person say that AS was being disrespectful by offering PC a hand getting up I'm going to go out that choke the piss out of the first person I see, so long as it's not my 80 yr old'll just kick her in the shin...but what the hell, we all know AS as the most respectful fighter in the game by far, all he was doing is showing that great amount of respect. The fight, I don't have answers for that, I think could of been that he wanted the fight to last a bit longer than most of his and was taking it easy the first few rounds then would lay him the fuck out in the third or fourth....cause lets face it folks anytime he did get off he got off so much quicker than PC also he's so god damn elusive PC wouldn't of hit him very often the whole fight. I almost think he wanted it to go a bit longer and was afraid if he hit it too many times one of those strikes might of put pc out just like most all other fighters he's faced.....that would be fact, he's put people out in no time way was he being disrespectful or trying to take the piss at pc, and specially not show boating he's done that in all his fights, check them's to throw of the other fighters rhythm and timing.....god damn how somones opinion changes when they don't put on a great fight they were expecting. Bullshit.....AS is the most respectful fighter in the game period.

I agree that silva's antics were psychological warfare intended to get cote off his game...that said, i think it went beyond good sportsmanship no matter how effective it can be...when guys like koschek engage in getting their opponents off their game mentally, they're hated and considered douchebags...when rashad evans engaged in such behavior on TUF it was looked upon as being basically bush league antics...and furthermore silva seems to pride himself on honor but at select times he shows absolutely none...a lot of his fans seem to turn a blind eye to just takes attention away from what a unbelievably skilled fighter he is and puts it towards the negative, which this sport does not need right now from one of its best
