GSP, Machida Shine at UFC 129

Saturday Night was a stacked card at UFC 129 in Toronto. Even the preliminary fights were great. Here are the results of the card:

Preliminary Card (Spike TV)
-Welterweight bout: Sean Pierson vs. Jake Ellenberger
Ellenberger defeated Pierson by KO (punch) at 2:42 of round 1
-Welterweight bout: Rory MacDonald vs. Nate Diaz
MacDonald defeated Diaz by unanimous decision (30-26, 30-27, 30-26)

Main Card
-Lightweight bout: Mark Bocek vs. Ben Henderson
Henderson defeated Bocek by unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
-Light Heavyweight bout: Vladimir Matyushenko vs. Jason Brilz
Matyushenko defeated Brilz by KO (punches) at 0:20 of round 1.
-Light Heavyweight bout: Randy Couture vs. Lyoto Machida
Machida defeated Couture by KO (flying front kick) at 1:05 of round 2.
-Featherweight Championship bout: José Aldo (c) vs. Mark Hominick
Aldo defeated Hominick by unanimous decision (48-45, 48-46, 49-46) to retain the UFC Featherweight Championship.
-Welterweight Championship bout: Georges St-Pierre (c) vs. Jake Shields
St-Pierre defeated Shields by unanimous decision (50-45, 48-47, 48-47) to retain the UFC Welterweight Championship

I really enjoyed the Aldo-Hominick fight because it was the best fight I’ve seen a long time. The GSP fight went as I thought it would. GSP would outlast Jake Shields for five rounds giving Shields his first lost in 6 years. And finally Lyoto Machida has ended the legendary career of Randy Couture. Couture had a great career but now gets to enjoy the fruits of his labor. UFC 129 was awesome and I really hope UFC keeps bringing the fans stacked cards.
