Fun read, but not enough bitching about the lines outside;-) I was pretty pissed off that I missed most of Thoresens fight even if I showed up early - seemed unnecessary. Oh well...

Not impressed with Globen as an arena (1 hour to get in, 30 mins to get a beer when they still had beer, 15 mins to take a piss) - the show itself was great.

Yeah I was shocked that the Globen arena was so poorly organized. They knew the arena was sold out so it was really strange that they didn't know how to handle the crowd getting in.

Yeah, I thought that was strange too. It must be sold out on a regular basis for hockey games and concerts, so it shouldn't be that hard to deal with the crowds one would think.

It seemed they started to let people in late, I had a beer at a nearby bar and could see the line was hardly moving at all. Then when it finally started moving it went pretty fast.

Good crowd though. Loved the simplicity of the "Slå han på kjäften!"("Punch him on the mouth!")-chants.

Oh so that what it was. Me and mates are terrible in swedish even though we had for years in school. We couldn't tell what the chant was about

 Caveman, and Vegh, for that matter looked a little lackluster tonight. I thought both guys would come out and destroy their opponents based on the hype but neither guy looked impressive =/

Terrible underperformance by both. Both threw their skills out of the window and just tried to brawl.
Vanttinen commented that it was his worst performance ever.

 I was at Vision at the weekend - it was a great performance from David. 4 round to 1 in my books from what I saw of it.

What do you mean? Last I spoke to him he was given a sort of sabbatical by the UFC to do what he needed to do so he could rejoin them if possible in the future. He's a beast.

Yeah I was just wondering where he was since he hasn't fought in a while. He looked great on short notice against Krauss and then just disappeared.
