If you read that stat line without watching the game last night, you'd think that Manning had an off game. In fact, you'd probably think he had a terrible game.
From watching the tape, Manning did look...

Denver was a great host city for UFC 150 with athletes and stars alike out to watch the rematch of Henderson/Edgar. Here former safety of the Eagles and Broncos Brian Dawkins hangs with Mr White. Dawkins was always a hard hitting SOB that probably could of had a career in MMA if he would have trained.
