A quick series of thoughts I wrote relating to the aftermath of UFC 167.

Right, even without being able to see the prelims the general consensus is that UFC: Belfort v Henderson was an awesome card. I’m not going to throw a huge amount of detail into a recap but the show offered up some questions.
UFC Fight Night 28: Maia vs Shields looks to be one of the better cards of the year. It’s the sixth Brazil show this year and the first in the Ginasio Jose Correa arena in Barueri, Sao Paulo. It seats 5,000 and should be full or close to full for showtime on Wednesday.
No one is going to watch it though as these early Wednesday cards have done poorly since the move to Fuel and Fox Sports.

A lot has been made in the last few days about Anderson Silva’s legacy. There is a minority i.e. not bright group of people that have said that he hasn’t faced world-class competition or some stupid shit.
