The big night of Heavyweights was a great card, but we did not get a new champ as predicted.
Mir just could not handle the pace of Junior and lost in the second round, as many of my friends predicted he would.
Cain destroyed the Big Foot Silva and showed his winning ways are here again and he will now face Junior later this year for the title. As you can see by the photo, Cain messed this guy up big time.
Wins for Roy Nelson and our very own Dan Hardy leaves the question where do these guys go next?

Now we await the rematch of the decade Anderson (The Spider) Silva and Chael Sonnen. Far too much trash talk has been involved with this fight and Sonnen only just beat Brit hero the count to get the match. Check out Motor Mouth’s interview.
Chael is a tough guy and a great talker but we must remember he battered Silva for four rounds and lost by submission.
I will give the full card soon.
