UFC 87 notes

Overall, I thought UFC 87 was a solid show. St. Pierre, Lesnar and Florian all performed well, if not dominant.

I also thought Kongo, McCrory, and Maia looked good. Hopefully each will get a push from the UFC.

Slightly disappointing performance from Huerta, but could partly be put on the excellent fight by Florian. Huerta (20-2-1) is only 25 years old and has plenty of time to get there.

Fight of the Night: St. Pierre vs. Fitch
Submission of the Night: Maia
Knockout of the Night: Emerson
-All four fighters receive a $60,000 bonus from the UFC.

One final note to those fans chanting "USA, USA, USA,..." during the Maia-MacDonald fight. Maia is from Brazil. MacDonald is from Canada...
