UFC 160 lived up to the hype from beginning to end. This card was on fire from Jeremy Stephens‘ elbow bloodbath on Payan, all the way to Junior Dos Santos delivering a deadly spinning heel kick to Mark Hunt.

Memorial weekend is usually a fun/happy weekend for everyone and their families, but tell that to Rick Story and Max Hollaway. Both fighters pressed the action and convincingly won their fights in my opinion, but the judges were at it again.

Maybe JDS, TJ Grant and Cain Velasquez could teach them a lesson on not letting it go to the judges. George Roop‘s impressive TKO victory over the returning Brian Bowles, and fighters constantly bowing down to the legend that is Mike Tyson, was what added icing to this special UFC cake.

A Cain and JDS rubber match seems to be on the way, plus Grant undefeated at lightweight looks to be next for Benson Henderson. It’s always rough to miss a good UFC card, and hopefully everyone had a safe weekend and was able to witness this epic card.
