Sergio Pettis beating Bennevidas actually surprised me.

The Holly Holm vs. Megan Anderson fight was also surprisingly one sided....really disappointing performance from Megan.

The Rashads getting finished should be the end of both of their UFC careers.

I really like Anthony Smith's back tattoo

CM Punk looked worse than I expected...but at least he showed heart...and took a punch better than Lesnar did...

Bektic got a well deserved win....

Clawwdia looked rather bad....

Pettis has much better striking and good enough wrestling. I thought he could do it, I believe he should fight Formiga next though.

LOL at I will be the good guy in this fight against Woodley. I could actually see that happening, because of how unlikable Tyron is, even though I think Tyron is okay. But Tyron makes himself look bad.

Even in the 4th round, Romero landed a lot more than I thought he did watching it live. He landed a lot of punches, including the ones that hurt Whittaker. Really wish Romero got the decision victory, he won 3,4 and 5. 5th round being a 10-8.

I don't feel it was a robbery any way you look at it. It was a very close fight, possibly one of the greatest MW title fights in history. Both guys put everything they had into it. I'm glad Whitaker won, but he sure as hell faced some adversity in arguably the toughest fight for anyone at MW. To be fair, if you're going up against Romero, you can be in danger at any point of the fight. Romero is certainly not a gimmie fight which makes Whitaker doing as good as he did all the more impressive. I would go as far as to say if Yoel won or if it were a draw, you couldn't really be upset at that, either. At this point, there is no need for a third match. Yoel failed twice to win and it's time to keep the division moving. I'm thinking Weidman vs Jacare since they've yet to fight and Gastelum vs Whitaker. Shame Mousasi left. That would have opened up all kinds of possibilities.

Nobody deserves to fight Yoel 3 times, Robert needs a new matchup. He was just peaking in round 2, looked perfect until Yoel decked the hall with him. A trilogy isn't good for Bobby.

I had it for Romero 3,4,5. 5th was 10 8 in my opinion. 4th was kind of a toss up so I could see the case for a draw. Not crying robbery though.

:star: Well stated man, it was an exciting Title fight. Fat Taco vs Whit will be a great next fight. The winner can take on chip/jacare outcome.
I'm so fucking high.

I was pretty comfortable that Whittaker won it. Don’t get me wrong, PRIDE rules is a different matter, but I really didn’t think that Yolo would get the decision.

Lucky for him that Robbo fucked his hand.

I wish we could have seen Rockhold or Mousasi against Whittaker they would match up fairly well

Does this mean they will end up agreeing not to fight and sign a dearmament deal that will leave both incapable of aggression or self defense?
