"Overall this UFC was an alright event. If I were you id just buy the UFC Best of 2007 dvd set because you get the 2 really good matches from this event, Liddell vs Silva and Hughes vs GSP. As for the pre-lim fights on here, they werent anything special or worth watching twice, except for Gamburyan vs Mohr. Dean Lister gives another boring 3 round fight, and James Irvin's bad luck follows him into his fight with Luiz Cane. Machida vs Sokoudjou was a good fight but I wasn't satisfied with Sokoudjou performance. As for Liddell vs Silva, wow, thats all I can say. One of my top 5 fights of the year, but hey, what do you expect from 2 of the best strikers in that divison! GSP vs Hughes was the fight of the night, but only one fighter showed up with confidence and heart needed to win...the other got dominated.

"First and foremost, THIS WAS HYPED UP!! This was supposed to be the UFC that surpassed all others. This was to be above and beyond! And as far as main events and co-main events are concerned, WOW!! Let's start with the 3 round fight. This was a fight that was supposed to happen and supposed to happen, but until now, it never happened! Chuck Liddell gets what he's always wanted in fighting Wanderlei Silva. He's always wanted to fight him, and like typical Chuck, he promises a knock out! But Chuck's lost has last two fights. First he lost his title when he faced Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. And Rampage owned him! And In less than 2 minutes. After that, Dana White and Joe Silva gave Keith Jardine exactly what he wanted, and that was the chance to fight Chuck Liddell. The fact of the matter was simple in that fight. If anybody thought for a second who was going to win that fight, it may have been Keith Jardine alone. And he won with a split decision, some may have thought it deserved to be unanimous. But Jardine was Chuck's 2nd loss straight, and they still gave him the chance to fight Wanderlei Silva. The question is simple. Will Chuck Liddell finally take his training seriously? And will this be what it takes to pump him up to get him back in the win column? But after one masterpiece, there is still a Middleweight belt to be given away. And due to a Matt Serra injury, it will be an Interim belt. And who better then to fight Matt Hughes than an old rival, Georges St-Pierre! This is #3, and each man has lost to the other. What could be better? We are treated to 10 fights!! But are they all good fights? Like I said, there are 10 fights, and they are listed below.
Mark Bocek vs. Doug Evans: Mark Bocek lost to Frankie Edgar by TKO, and Doug Evans lost to Roger Huerta by TKO, so both of these boys want the win. It goes to a unanimous decision.
Roan Carneiro vs. Tony DeSouza: Wild n' wooly DeSouza has a great ground game, while Carneiro just wants the KO over Tony. Ends in the middle of the 2nd round.
Jordan Radev vs. Dean Lister: Ok, aside from a couple of great takedowns, combined with even better ground n' pound when the takedowns DID happen, THIS WAS SILLY!! Borderline ridiculous. This could've been so much better, and it easily went to a unanimous decision. Somewhat pathetic.
Nate Mohr vs. Manny Gamburyan: Great scrap, and it doesn't last too long, barely over a minute and a half! Not bad at all.
Luiz Cane vs. James Irvin: Ok, the theme for James Irvin in 2007 is simply BAD LUCK!! In UFC 71, he loses and can't continue to injury to Thiago Silva. Now in THIS fight, I'll simply say that Luiz Cane gets disqualified, and rightly so. You wanna see how? Watch the fight. Poor James! At least he got the W for his troubles this time.
Rich Clementi vs. Melvin Guillard: An atmosphere filled with hatred stirs the pot even more for this battle. And after watching the first round finish, I lost complete respect for the winner of this match. Show some class, get your hand raised, and say thank you! Totally uncalled for, grudge match or not.
Lyoto Machida vs. Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou: The mysterious, undefeated Machida welcomes the debut of "The African Assassin!" This is a great scrap that ends in round 2.
Soa Palelei vs. Eddie Sanchez: Sanchez is always underrated, and all but once has come out on top. Only 1 fighter really pushes the action, and the fight is stopped before the 3rd round comes to a close. WHOO!! YEAH BABY!!
Chuck Liddell vs. Wanderlei Silva: You wanna watch a great fight? Yeah, watch this one! Watch this one go the distance. Some great moments, might've been even greater if Liddell would've quit watching the clock. But it was still great!
Georges St-Pierre vs. Matt Hughes: WOW!! That's all anybody can say. And it ends before the 2nd round comes to a close.
So, you can believe the hype about the 2 events featured on the front cover. Even if there were a couple of boring moments, that doesn't mean it was all bad. And it was actually pretty good! To find out how good, check out the DVD."
