Alright, enough about the controversial decisions rendered at UFC 143. Let’s talk about the important stuff: What did you think of “Evolution,” the UFC’s expensive new pay-per-view intro?

Did it live up to all the hoopla or was it simply ho-hum?

Right off the bat, I can think of several fighters that aren’t too fond of the clip. Just to name a few, Ken Shamrock, Tito Ortiz, Sean Sherk, Matt Hughes, Tim Sylvia, Wanderlei Silva and Vitor Belfort were all on the wrong end of highlight-reel footage that will now introduce upcoming Octagon PPV broadcasts.

Regardless, paying homage to Royce Gracie (Pictured) right off the jump was the perfect way to start things.
