What a night!

A night full of surprises, I'll only focus on the bigger matches -

Kenny Florian loses by decision to Maynard? Did not expect that, Florian looked great coming into this fight and has always shown dominance in his previous bouts, I've got no idea how he managed to lose this one. Maynard will be getting a title shot against Edgar later this year.

Toney v Couture was almost exactly how I and millions others predicted; takedown, ground and pound and then a submission. Toney began with a low boxers stance and had his arms relatively low, this was presumably to defend any take-downs? Anyway, he had no success in his take-down defense - he was taken down in the first 30 seconds and had his face pounded in for 3 minutes before Couture tried to lock in an arm-triangle. He tapped in the 1st round. Dana White has said that his career in the UFC is over. I only hope that the next time a boxer steps into the Octagon, he is in his prime - boxers like the Klitschko brothers or Haye.

Main event: was a bit of a dull fight but, my God, did Edgar show B.J up or what?! There is no doubt, now, that Edgar is the true lightweight champion and the greatest Lightweight in the world right now. B.J was outclassed for twenty-five minutes, was hit by some big shots multiple times and was taken down on numerous occasions - something that hasn't happened much in the last eight years!
In the end, B.J showed respect to Edgar and the night ended with Dana stating Penn's future is uncertain at the moment.

118 has also unveiled Shaquille O'Neal's desire to compete in MMA. Big Shaq said that he'd much like to fight Hong Man Choi in an MMA bout and does not want to fight anyone that isn't of similar size to him. Interesting.

That's all for 118, a similar card to the previous two - where champions have been exposed for their true talent.
