UFC on Versus 6 recap, Full results,bonuses,gate/liveattendance,medical suspensions and fighter salaries

UFC on Versus 6 was more than I could have imagined it to be.  Last night I was very disappointed by Dominick Cruz’s performance, his lack of finish and so on. With 24 hours gone by, I have a fresh view on the whole card. This morning I re watched the entire card, knowing Cruz had a broken hand from the first round greatly changes my opinion. Cruz put on a masterful performance against a super talented opponent. Mighty Mouse put on the best fight Cruz has been in quite some time.

Filled with controversial stops and failure to stops in the form of Anthony Johnson vs. Charlie Brenneman, T.J Grant vs. Shane Roller and the Yves Edwards vs. Rafaello Oliveira.

Shane Roller was submitted without a verbal or physical tap, instead, he yelped and Yamasaki the brother called the fight. Grant said at the presser that he was moments from breaking the arm, true or not, it doesn’t matter. If the fighter is intelligently defending…

Charlie Brenneman was on the receiving end of a vicious kick to the face, sending him reeling to the mat, then the fight was stopped. The problem, Brenneman was still completely aware, in fact he braced himself for impact, was sitting up when the great Yamasaki stepped in and stopped the fight early. Too early most would say. There is a case to be made that Brenneman would have ben finished soon, but we will never know.

Demetrious Johnson should move to the 125lb division when the FC puts it in place in the very very near future. Last night’s fight put the fire in Dana White, pushing the division closer to fruition. I can’t wait, some of the best fighters in the world are 125 lbers. Let the fireworks begin.
