UFC 113: Machida vs. Shogun II
1. Alan Belcher vs. Patrick Cote - 7
2. Matt Mitrione vs. Kimbo Slice - 6
3. Sam Stout vs. Jeremy Stephens - 8
4. Paul Daley vs. Josh Koscheck - 5
5. Lyoto Machida vs. Shogun Rua - 8
Absolutely fantastic event and easily the best UFC offering thus far in '10. Great performances by Belcher and Mitrione helped score their fights high marks. The only somewhat uneventful fight is still worth seeing as it contains one of MMA's most controversial moments post-match as Daley gets in a suckerpunch. Stout vs. Stephens was a war, both guys evenly matched, lots of heart. Main event is a huge moment, as previously 16-0 Machida gets his face obliterated.
1. Tom Lawlor vs. Joe Doerksen - 7
2. Marcus Davis vs. Jonathan Goulet - 6
Both of the prelims that aired on the PPV itself were spectacular. Two very physical battles and a very pleasant surprise on an already fantastic show.
