"UFC 58: USA vs. Canada
Mandalay Bay Events Center, Nevada
UFC 58 lays out a great fight card. We have the highly anticipated return of "The Prodigy", BJ Penn and a title bout between Rich Franklin and David Louseau. Along with some other good matchups, this promised to be another exciting UFC event that would contribute to the meteoric rise of MMA in mainstream media.
Yves Edwards v. Mark Hominick:
These are two very strong strikers with excellent speed going head to head. The fight surprisingly ends with a submission! This was the first time I'd seen Mark Hominick in action. He should do very well in the UFC lightweight division...
Joe Doerksen v. Nate Marquardt:
This is an even matchup... even their MMA fighting records are nearly identical. They provide some good action throughout the fight. It ultimately goes to a decision.
BJ "The Prodigy" Penn v. Georges "Rush" St. Pierre:
The Prodigy returns to the UFC and takes on the top contender in the welterweight division. St. Pierre, in my opinion, has been the champion in waiting since he lost to Matt Hughes. He has taken down every single opponent he has faced since then - and made them look bad in the process. BJ Penn is obviously an amazing fighter, so I was looking forward to this fight even more than the main event here at UFC 58. The fight begins and GSP is poked in the eye early on. He begins bleeding (a sight we are not used to seeing) and appears to lose the 1st round to Penn. He comes back strong during the fight, but it remains fairly close in a mostly standing bout. This fight goes to a split decision and the better, more talented fighter, I believe, is indeed awarded the victory.
Mike "Quick" Swick v. Steve Vinegault:
Mike Swick is coming off the hype of winning his first 2 UFC fights. He comes out to 2Pac and lives up to his nickname, "Quick"... Pretty bad@ss.
Rich "Ace" Franklin v. David "The Crow" Louseau:
Louseau is very deserving of this title shot. He has had many impressive performances in the octagon - and his time finally comes on this night, at this event... Franklin intends to dominate the middleweight division and he certainly has the skills to stay on top. Franklin looks good in the 1st round. He loves to stand and Louseau appears to be caught and hurt a few times. This is an exciting fight throughout, although it is pretty one-sided, with the exception of a brief moment in the 3rd round. Franklin breaks his hand in the 2nd round, yet it doesn't appear to hamper his performance too significantly. He looks great against a great opponent and makes a mess of Louseau's face with his striking. This fight is a war.
Great event. Great matchups. Highly recommended!"

"There are obviously some comments plugging pride (maybe they work for them or something) any MMA fan knows that UFC is now and will always be the best. They fight in a caged octagon not a boxing ring. On pride the action is always stopped then restarted when they are on the ropes, I am suprised they dont fall through the ropes more often. The ring announcers speak Japanese not english.
Anyway this fight card is excellent, and the fights are always action packed."
Great UFC PPV

"This has a great battle between Rich Franklin and #1 contender David Loiseau. 5 rounds of full action. It's funny are the only 2 negative reviewers is from jenspulver11 and masakatsufunaki7. Who seem to only obsess and write negative reviews about the ufc. Look at there review history. It looks like all these two do when they are bored is look for ufc DVD's to write bad reviews on. Pride is a great organization but ufc puts on way better shows. Yes pride does have better fighters but none are as interesting as the fighters in the UFC, except for just a few in the Pride organization. It seems all those two other reviews just love to obsess about pride and probably *** it to Mirko "Cro Cop." You two *** need to go get a life. He better yet just go *** each other. Last I remember is that Jens Pulver established his career in the UFC so obviously you must like the ufc with a name like jenspulver11. Anyway enough ranting about those to *** bags. This is a great UFC card with some memorable fights. Definitely worth your time to check this one out."

"This was a great event! Everyone is complaining about half the card going to decision but those fights were the best ones on the dvd! Rich Franklin is one of the best fighters ever to step into the octagon and he shows his dominance in his fight with Loiseau. I guess GSP vs Bj Penn turned out to be an upset because everyone was expecting the prodigy to win! The card also features Yves Edwards, Mike Swick, Sam Stout, and Spencer Fisher! Don't let the other reviews fool you, this was a great event so buy it now to add to your UFC collection!"
