UFC 94 Wrap

What an interesting night of fights. No knockouts until the second to last fight of the night when Lyoto Machida silenced his critics with a big, big time knockout of Thiago Silva with one second left in the first round.

And then Georges St. Pierre dominated BJ Penn for four straight rounds until his team threw in the towel. GSP was bigger, faster, stronger and just too much for BJ to handle.

There was, this morning, some controversy from the BJ camp. Call it VaselineGate if you like but it wouldn't have changed the outcome either way.

So, how'd I do on my predictions?
