Urijah got KTFO!!!!! I still can't believe it. Props to Mike Brown, he fought like a demon.

Jens Pulver? I have to give the man credit. He doesn't EVER take on pu$$y opponents, and Garcia is super tough. I didn't expect Jens to win, but I didn't think he would lose that quick, either.

And Paulo Filho? WTF. Was he on drugs or something? That was crazy - he was fighting back at all.

Strange night!

Vid while it lasts:

Glad faber got ktfo! He was acting like a cocky brat, as usual. I can't stand showboaters!

Glad Jens got ktfo, never liked him much.

Filho should be stripped of his title for not making weight, and for not fighting at all.

I was totally surprised Faber lost; he is one hell of a fighter but Brown did it and he was solid in the fight. Haven't watched any others as of yet; some already removed such as Pulvers. Was that Frank Mir as one of the commentators?

Yessir, Frank Mir is a long time commentator for the WEC.

Apparently Filho has some substance abuse and possibly some mental problems:

http://sports.yahoo.com/mma/blog/mma_experts/post/Absolutely-baffling-performance-by-Filho?urn=mma,120019

"You could see a disasterous effort in the offing when Paulo Filho missed weight yesterday by seven pounds. The WEC middleweight champ suffered the first loss of his career and didn't look very interested while doing so against Chael Sonnen at WEC 36.

After playing with fire a bit in the first round Sonnen made Filho, a jiu-jitsu specialist who is lethal on the ground, stand for the remainder of the fight. Filho was exhausted and didn't do anything of an offensive nature the rest of the way as Sonnen peppered him with jabs for 10 minutes to close the fight. Sonnen won a unanimous decision (30-27 on all three cards) but does not pick up Filho's belt in this non-title bout.

The belt was taken off the table and the fight was shortened from five rounds to three when Filho eventually checked over the limit on Tuesday at 189 lbs. It's irrelevant, the WEC is eliminating the division in 2009. Chances are that both Sonnen and Filho will be added to the UFC's middleweight roster. Dana White and Co. may want to look into Filho's personal issues. He was in rehab earlier this year for depression and substance abuse problems. No one misses weight in MMA by that much without a bigger issue they're dealing with.

Filho (16-1) never appeared to be into the fight mentally. In final 90 seconds, Filho looked dazed repeatedly looking off to various sides of the cage. It prompted WEC color voice Frank Mir to flip out:

"What is he looking at? I feel like I'm watching the movie with Woody Harrelson (where) he's like talking to jesus or something."

I'd be curious to see what happens with Filho's post-fight drug test. He really appeared to be disoriented at times. This should've been a crowning moment for Sonnen, who beat a guy ranked in most fight experts' top 5 worldwide at 185. Sonnen didn't have a joyous look on his face in the ring after the victory. Maybe he was thinking the win was a little hollow with Filho not at his best."

Huh. Looks like Garcia has a bit of a side business going in case the MMA thing doesn't work out:

http://www.mmatko.com/mma-fighter-leonard-garcia-arrested-for-alleged-drug-trafficking/

"Featherweight Leonard Garcia was one of the members of an alleged drug trafficking ring arrested Tuesday in Lubbock, Texas, according to a report by NBC news affiliate KCBD.

A four-year investigation into a cocaine ring that reportedly spans from Lubbock to El Paso lead to the arrests. The 28-year-old fighter and current World Extreme Cagefighting member was arrested for his alleged connection with the cocaine ring.

If convicted, the three minor players in the ring could face up to 40 years in prison and a $2 million fine, while the others arrested could face life in prison and up to a $4 million dollar fine."

Oh my god; stupid idiots.

I see on the website there is a link that Chris Leben has been suspected for 9 months as tested positive for steroids.

http://www.themmapost.com/2008/11/chris-leben-tests-positive-for-steroids.html

While this may give MMA a black eye I still think it is a positive things that they check this and report it. Bad thing is unless you keep up on MMA you probably would never hear this.
