11:38 p.m. Irvin and Silva begin circling each other. Silva usually takes a round to feel out his opponents. I?ll come back to it.
11:38 p.m. Flurry by Arlovski, but the Affliction ring is so big that Rothwell can backpedal and avoid a concussion. Round one ends.
11:39 p.m. I flip back to Spike. Irvin is motionless on the ground. He?s apparently been shot by a sniper in the stands.
11:40 p.m. Big punches by Arlovski. He gets full mount.
11:41 p.m. Irvin is being helicoptered off to a trauma unit as police search the arena for the assassin.
11:44 p.m. Flying knee by Arlovski. Rothwell is taking some incredible damage, but doesn?t fall down.
11:47 p.m. Rothwell?s blood dots the camera lens before he crumbles to the mat. Backstage, Megadeth is sickened by the display as they rehearse a song about child sacrifice.
11:49 p.m. Rory Markham (Pictures) and Brodie Farber (Pictures) step into the Octagon. I?m surprised authorities would let them contaminate a crime scene.
11:51 p.m. The crowd loves Arlovski, whose English sure as hell doesn?t get any better when he?s out of breath.
11:53 p.m. Markham lands a huge, life-altering head kick. Farber falls right next to Irvin?s chalk outline.
