Last night there were two titles on the line. In the Heavyweight fight, it was Tim Sylvia vs. Jeff Snowman Monson.
This fight went the distance and had Sylvia winning by decision. All fight, Snowman tried taking Sylvia down and failed throughout the first 2 rounds. I believe his first takedown was in round 3, but Sylvia was too dominant even on the ground breaking out of two guillotine attempts. Snowmans arms were too short to do any real damage to Sylvia while on the ground.
This fight did get boring near the end. In the 5th and final round, Sylvia didn't even attack, but just preserved his title. He had Snowman on his back in a defensive position but really they both didn't attack.
Even referee Big John McCarthy had to remind the fighters that this was indeed a fight and to go at each other. When this match ended, the fans booed cuz they wanted action. After the fight, Snowman looked beat up in the face pretty bad, and Sylvia's face looked fresh.
The next fight was the main event with Welterweight champ Matt Hughes defending his belt against Georges St. Pierre. This would be their second fight (Hughes won the first bout).
Georges started on fire, attacking early and being really aggressive (which is what we pay money to see Maine-i-ac). Hughes never really did much damage on Georges throughout the 1st round. I should mention though that Georges was attempting inside leg kicks and hit Hughes in the crotch 2 consecutive times!
He also connected with his classic spinning back kick.(not in the nads but in the gut) In the closing seconds though, It seemed like Georges knocked Hughes out when he went flying to the floor, but he was saved by the bell.
The 2nd round was no different with Georges controlling the fight. He then connected with a big kick to the dome, and pounced Hughes with rapid fire punches and the ref stopped the fight. Congrats to Georges St. Pierre on an ass-kicking.
He is cool cuz at the end, when he was thanking people, he said because he's not an American, he's from Canada, he would rep this belt for North America. He is by far the first man to rep a continent.
