“UFC 85: Bedlam” LIVE Results, Updates & Discussion
Bloody Elbow 2.0 | Anton Tabuena

I’ll be at Velocity 5 in Falls Church, VA today pulling the biggest loser move in the world as your’s truly live blogs the “UFC 85: Bedlam” from a bar. Local 106.7 WJFK midday talkers Big O & Dukes are hosting a UFC viewing party here, so I’ll be crashing it. Please feel fee to tell me how awful I am if you see me in person.

WARNING. Sherdog will begin posting the live results of the undercard around 1 p.m. EST. I’ll link their results page, but I won’t post anything on the front page.

HOWEVER, discussion of the undercard and main card will be going on in the comments section, so be prepapred: SPOILERS AHEAD.

Don’t forget: there’s still time to prep for the fights if you’ve been living under a rock the last few weeks. BloodyElbow.com‘s staff listed their predictions for the event, there’s footage of the weigh-ins, a discussion of the history of Thiago Alves’ weight problems, a gambler’s breakdown of the event, coverage of the press conference and much more.

Enjoy the show.

OPENING THOUGHTS: Alves’ weight issues addressed up front, which is exactly how it should be done. Then again, Rogan qualifying why Alves didn’t make weight isn’t exactly how I would cover it.

Apparently the show is sold out.

I still think they’re building Day up to be something he isn’t, but then again, my picks are awful this time out, so what do I know?

Anyone get the feeling Marquardt is going to crush Leites?

Swick vs. Davis looks like it’s going to be a barn burner.
