UFN 33 was a “g’day” in Brisbane for fans of MMA. The card featured lots of action including a vicious return to form from Mauricio Rua and a sloppy-but-spectacular brawl between headliners Mark Hunt-Antonio Silva. The crowd was also on full blast, scoring a show full of entertaining efforts. Some quick thoughts: Nice to see up-and-comers like Alex Garcia and Justin Scoggins deliver on their hype / Happy trails to Julie Kedzie, one of the classiest ladies in the game / Nam Phan should get one more shot at bantamweight before being cut / Pat Barry needs to drop down to 205 pounds or find a new place of employment / Ryan Bader is extremely talented but far too robotic to ever earn a spot at the top of the division / I’ll believe “Shogun” is back when he beats someone more notable than James Te Huna / A rematch between Silva-Hunt will never live up to their initial encounter but should be booked nonetheless because there’s no doubt the tilt would deliver another dose of edge-of-your-seat antics.
