ProMMA.info Card of 2009: UFC 100

With the UFC putting on an ambitious number of shows there were fears that their product would become diluted. Yes, there have been some instances like UFC 108 and 109 when fans have been upset about the quality of a card.

What happened to Frank Mir?

Frank Mir hates Brock Lesnar. That is fairly evident. He believes Brock broke some unspoken ethical “code” that martial artists are supposed to live by after his win at UFC 100.

Alves recently talked to the Brazilian magazine Tatame about why he was not able to put a stop to St. Pierre’s reign. “What surprised me was that I couldn’t find the guy… I did a great strategy, but every time I tried to catch him he moved away,” said Alves.
