YEAH, it's a quick recap (with my thoughts) on the UFC 127 PPV from Sydney, Australia. Some big wins, some big upsets and some big fucking ridiculous judges' decisions.
Running time: 17min

I WAS sad to hear of the passing of Dwayne McDuffie (1962–2011) earlier this week, following complications from surgery. He co-created and wrote Marvel's DAMAGE CONTROL - one of my fave comedy miniseries of the late 80s/early 90s.
