It promised to be and ended up as, the greatest card that the UFC has ever put on.
In a word, it was “wow”.
UFC 166 from Houston, Texas, failed to disappoint; as it delivered fight after fight, after fight, of well contested values.
At the end of its card, it left Cain Velasquez as its undisputed ruler.
Whether or not it was Tim Boetsch fending off defeating, and scoring a well contested victory over C.D Dollaway, John Dodson’s beautiful KO victory over Darrell Montague, Gabe Gonzaga’s KO of Shawn Jordan, the phenomenal (potentially fight of the year) bout between Gilbert Melendez and Diego Sanchez, or the war for dominance, between Cain Velasquez and Junior Dos Santos, it was, in my opinion, the greatest UFC card I’ve ever seen.
In a word, there were no losers; except, possibly, for Nate Marquardt.
As a fan, it’s hard to find words that can describe the thrills this card provided.
