"St Pierre vs Parysian - good fight, Karo was the more technical grappler, but St Pierre was the better striker, and overall much stronger physically. Not the most exciting fight out there, but some good moments, like Karo's rolling kimura, and a great flying knee from St Pierre.Franca vs Thompson - another pretty good fight. Thopson was the agressor on the feet, Franca was the agressor on the ground. Thompson the more technical striker, but Franca with more power in his fists. Thomposn reminds me of Yves Edwards - tall and lanky frame, good standup, and a surprisingly good ground game for a fighter considered primarily a striker. Serra vs Curran - Curran fights at 145lbs, and here he was taking on a 155lb fighter. 10 pounds may not seem like much, but at lower weight classes every pound counts, and this was apparent in this fight - Serra consistently overpowered Curran. Overall, fiewer submission attempts than you would expect in a fight between 2 BJJ black belts. Decent fight, but Serra, usually a wild fighter who goes for the finish, has been fighting a little too conservatively for my tastes lately.Mir vs Simms - Simms is a B fighter at best, more like a C fighter imho, but he has the uncanny ability to avoid submissions, which he showed to good effect here. Mir was the better wrestler, better submissions guy, better striker, better looking (jk) - but still had a real hard time with Simms. Mir needs to work on his cardio, and he definetly needs more ring experience - when the fight is not going according to plan, he tends to fall apart.Carlos Newton vs Renato Verissimo - Carlos is a VERY experienced, elite fighter, Renato has had only 4 fights in MMA, but Renato is BJ Penns bjj trainer, a BJJ world champ, and in a previous fight absolutely took apart former Welterweight title contender Gill Castillo. Good fight, takedowns by both fighters, reversals by both fighters, sub attempts by both fighters, some good shots thrown (one of the fighters almost gets knocked out).Huges vs Penn - Huges the most dominant fighter in the welterweight division, Penn the uncrowned king of the lightweight division (he should have won the fight with Uno). Not many people gave Penn a chance - he was moving up a weight class to fight a fighter renowned for his power. Good fight, although i'm not sure if the outcome would be the same if they fough again.Coture vs Belfort - well, we'll see them fight again soon. The fight was not controversial though - look at the rules - it was a legit win (yes, it was also a freak accident, and doesn't speak of the skill of the two fighters, but per the rules, a legit win overall. If this happened in boxing, it would also be considered a legit win).Overall, an OK UFC. On the one hand too many decisions and a dud main event, on the other hand if you don't like one sided beatdowns, but rather like to watch well matched fighters fight, this is a good event.A comment about the DVD itself - there is a 10 minute intro in the beginning, and you cannot skip it! Also, no slo-mo replays whatsoever. They need to fo a better job with DVD's in the future."

"The best fight on this disc is the one between Matt Hughes and BJ Penn. It is a very exciting, and surprising, fight. The main event between Couture and Vilifort is a dud because Couture's eye gets cut about 30 seconds into the fight. The doctor stops it. If possible, rent this one and save your money for "Undisputed"."

"UFC 46, Super Natural.
Date: January 31, 2004
Location: Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas
In a preliminary bout, we see the debut of Georges St. Pierre, who would quickly become a star in the UFC. He debuts against Karo Parisyan and puts on an elbow clinic. Parisyan is a great fighter, but it was good to see him dominated like this. He annoys me.
Lee Murray then fights Jorge Rivera. Rivera was looking pretty good in the UFC, but you would never know it by seeing this fight.
Wes Sims v. Frank Mir. Sims is a 6'10" beast, yet Mir's technical skills are simply superior to Sims'. Not a bad fight to watch and it ends in exciting fashion.
Next up was one of my all-time favorite UFC fighters, Matt Hughes. He faces off with BJ Penn. They don't seem to respect each other very much, but after one of the greatest upsets in UFC history is pulled off, the mood changes significantly in the octagon.
Carlos Newton then makes his return to the UFC against Renato Verissimo. Verissimo is truly impressive in this bout - controlling the powerful Newton through most of the fight. This one goes to a decision.
MAIN EVENT: Quite anti-climatic, as the fight must be ended almost immediately due to an accidental eyelid slice suffered by Randy Couture.
As always, there are good behind-the-scenes bonus features included on the DVD. Don't let the letdown of the main event turn you away, there are some really good fights at this UFC event."

"JEFF CURRAN vs. MATT SERRA-The overpowering Serra doesn't have too much trouble with Curran who shows good overall skills but can just never do any real damage to Serra. An OK fight.
JOSH THOMPSON vs. HERMAS FRANCA-I didn't think Franca would dare stand up but he did the whole first round and it was very exciting. He rethinks this after the start of round 2 but he and Thompson are able to squirm out of all of the various holds they are in. Conditioning comes into play and I don't think Franca knew what he was getting in to. Then right as you think that Franca shows he was playing possum just like he does in every fight and starts throwing like crazy. Extremely close and entertaining all 3 rounds.
GEORGES ST. PIERRE vs. KARO PARISYAN-talk about a dream match up. You know going in that it's not going to be too exciting, unless St. Pierre would knock him out early. Well Karo is way too good for that. He dares not to stand up and just looks to submit the whole fight. It does get exciting though because of the fact that Karo is so much better at submissions and St. Pierre has to fight hard to get out of some kimuras. It would have been nice if this was a title fight and could have gone 5 rounds. Still a decent match.
LEE MURRAY vs. JORGE RIVERA-Rivera's second match in the UFC and he shows that he has no ground game. Well at least he didn't get a chance to show it.
WES SIMS vs. FRANK MIR-the first round is hilarious with Wes Sims just getting hurt very badly the whole time. It gets very brutal at the end of the first round. It may have made it even more funny since Sims decided to get disqualified in their last fight by stomping on Mir's head. One thing is for sure though, when you let Sims hit you it always hurts. The guy is just a freakish monster. Mir is powerful enough to do what he wants but still has some problems. Nice TKO ending, especially if you saw the first fight.
B.J. PENN vs. MATT HUGHES-HUghes must have majorly underestimated Penn because he just gets manhandled.
RENATO VERISSIMO vs. CARLOS NEWTON-I was not very excited to watch this fight but it is sort of fun to see Newton continue to get annihilated in the UFC.
VITOR BELFORT vs. RANDY COUTURE-this is the reason the DVD only gets 2 stars. Title matches rarely live up to being great and this may be the worst ever. Couture gets scratched in the eye 20 seconds in and they call the fight."
