That main event was a absolute blast and was a fan-damn-tastic free basic-cable fight. By the end, I was cheering pretty hard for Cooper just because Shlemenko kept going for those spinning back fists (I think he was 1 for 10, maybe) and kept doing that ridiculous taunting after he got rocked. 


There were sections of the Rogers-Parlo fight where they reminded me of Rock Em Sock Em Robots, just standing in one place hitting each other.


As soon as I said to myself "man, that Butcher guy looks awkward in there, like he doesn't really belong," he knocks the old man out. Old man - he's younger than me and is retiring. Even if I wanted to be a cagefighter like my hero Kip Dynamite, I'm too old. :(


I just hate I missed the Torrey-Ward fight, from reading about it.
