UFC Lesnar vs. Velasquez

I remember watching the post-fight celebration when Brock Lesnar defeated Shane Carwin.  He looked relieved.  That was the first thing I noticed about his facial expressions.  He didn't look like he was on a mission, or confident, or anything.  He honestly looked like a kid who just had a shot from the doctor and realized it wasn't as bad as he thought it was going to be.  And his next fight, he lost to Cain Velasquez.  I don't know if the two are related at all, but it was certainly a weird facial expression to have.

Also, a couple years ago before Kimbo Slice was defeated in a Strikeforce X fight (I may be wrong about the brand) I noticed his facial expressions were really weird pre-fight.  He looked in the camera and and was frowning as though he was angry, but it looked like a fake frown.  Like he actually wasn't upset or angry at all.  It was very strange.  He lost his fight too and is now out of UFC entirely.

Upcoming Ohio State versus Arkansas bowl game

Based on the performance of SEC teams versus other Big Ten teams, my thinking is that Ohio State will be beaten soundly by Arkansas, despite being the higher seed.  I haven't watched a single game of Arkansas's this year, I'm simply looking at how common opponents are fairing against each other.
