    The card, as a whole, was good tonight. Shane roller looked like George Burns out their. Jorgensen needs another win before challenging the belt, imo. The bart fight was called a litlle early, but micklewright wasn't going to have recovered and would have went out a lot harder than he really needed to.

    Good fights for this one. I'm starting to like WEC more and more.

    The WEC is Great. You seldom see a shitty fight. The little guys are non-stop. I understand why most people are interested in watching the bigger fighters but when it comes to crisp, technical matches, the WEC is it. The Jorgensen/Pickett fight was kick ass. Pettis looked really good as well. Great show!
