Lets recap the discussion points from the main page:

1. Holst choke was on too long
2. OAMA – good or bad?
3. Wedderburn misses weight
4. Wedderburn's walkout – good or bad
5. Wedderburn should go to 185

1. Whatever. I can imagine the scenario of  Holst breaking right away and then some 'it got stopped too soon" bullshit starts. There was no disputing this win. He didn't kill or maim anyone. Move on.

2. Fine by me.  Nothing succeeds like success.  It would have been easy to put Mark against a meh 155er for his last tilt, but they put it on the line. They got a guy to the UFC. Enough with the "Gracie conspiracy". The UFC never would have gambled on Holst if he didn't have talent. And Morvan is fearless. Or are you referring to WRECK as well? This show redeemed them. A real special night for the region.

3 . Disrespectful to his opponent, the promoters who gave him a huge opportunity, the fans. We were guaranteed he would make it. Enough with the excuses. Further, he is coughing up 20% of his purse (50 this time if you believe the rumours) before a punch is even thrown. He could put groceries in the fridge, clothes on his kids' backs with that money.

4. Not my cup of tea.  Focus on kicking ass. I get why people dig it in retrospect, but if you have that much sizzle in the walkout, have some goddamn steak in the ring.

5. Please. Contrary to his persecution complex, the majority of fans want him to succeed. The cut is killing him…
