UFC 110: Nogueira vs Velasquez

Finally got some time to blog about UFC 110 yesterday. THE BEST live sporting event I have been to. Hands down. The script couldn’t have been written any better. The Arena was packed with more than 17,000 people. The crowd was filled with predominantly educated fans who knew what was going on during the fights. Everyone was vocal and cheering which lead to a great atmosphere… And George Sotiropolous, the Australian from Geelong, VIC came out on top against Joe Stevenson who is a top-tier 155lb fighter. This fight was the one I was looking forward to the most, and the fight was a great one which went the distance, and George dominated nearly every step of the way. When the fight was over, we didn’t have to wait till the decision was over to know that the Australia had won. The sounds of the packed house which nearly took the roof off, was enough to know what the pending decision would be. Throughout the fight as well, constant cheers of Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, and “Cmon Aussie Cmon” got the excitement going and made me feel proud to be Australian.

The rest of the night’s fights were pretty good too. All in all, UFC 110 had one of the best card of fights for a while. People on forums and websites from other countries are still fuming about how shit their cards have been in the past, and Australia got a great card. Cry me a river I say. :)

It was a truly great and memorable week having the UFC in Australia. From seeing all the MMA buzz around, to meeting fighters, to seeing a UFC live, and to see some of the best in the world compete in something I’m trying to grow has been an amazing experience. Bring on the next one!
