    This was a fun event. The Smith-Radach fight is a candidate for Fight of the Year so far.

    I correctly guessed that Diaz's ground skills would be superior to Shamrock's, but I was surprised at just how superior Diaz turned out to be. It seems that Shamrock's grappling skills haven't evolved since his heyday in the late '90s. The grappling of todays jiu-jitsu MMA fighters (like Diaz, Maia and GSP) seems to be at a whole new level.

    Ross.

    I agree that the Smith-Radach fight was awesome. Nick also looked great in dismantling that old fart Frank. Nick always fights to the level of his competition. I hope he goes back to 170 and keeps fighting top guys!
