I'm excited to see Luque back in action, I hope he adapted from his last fight and worked on his wrestling and TDD. Neal is a good opponent. Both these gentlemen can deliver some brutal moments. If it turns out to be a boring fight, I'll be quite disappointed.

The main event has potential. Will Hill continue his ascension or will Santos find again his passion for destruction? I'm on the fence on this one being 5 rounds but hope they'll go for it early on.

Don't really care much for the rest of the card but I hope they'll prove me wrong!

Hill is heavily favored.

I would put some money on Santos just for that.

Santos has many losses in his last fights and he was gunshy in his win against Walker BUT he has only fought the top guys. And he is definately a step up in competition for Hill.

I hope Luque vs Neal gets really bloody.

As much as I like santos, he seems to more be mentally done in his time than physically.

I feel the same. He went from a killer climbing his way to a title shot to a timid fighter who seems more preoccupied not to lose rather than winning. Sucks and even though I'm betting against him this time, I'd be happy for him to score another big KO and get his mojo back.

Luque/Neal is spectacular booking. Have always been a Santos fan but he's obviously shot

Hill has much room for improvement physically.

Which is scary as he is already a killer

Brogan Walker-Sanchez looks like a younger version of that chick from Evil Genius on Netflix.

No love for this event? I found it pretty good.

Silva vs Egger, what a weird finish. Tap, no tap? We'll never know.. The video didn't give more explanation and I wonder why a judge or Herb could have a say in it. The armbar did look tight ,yes and I applaud people who let go early to not damage their opponent. But it was weird in this case.

McKenna did well with the von flue choke, she did OSP proud. Still not sold but will keep an eye on her. Bryan Battle looked weird at WW but I have to give him credit, that was a nicely set up HK KO, well done! Sam Alvey... why did I even think he could redeem himself and win? He got destroyed as many expected and there should be no way for him to still be in the UFC except as a punching bag at this point.

Main: McKinney did really well as expected. He is still a long wayyyy to the top but I'll be waiting for his next fight. Spivak did what I thought he'd do, win decisively. But, his striking was above expectations and I'm curious how far he'll go now in the rankings at HW.

TUF: Walker was truly horrible and deserved to loose and never fight in MMA again. Juliana did well but I still don't see her go very far at all. Time will tell. Usman's brother looked horrendous. All he had were wild hooks and he was getting countered all day. Yes, he got the KO win but that's only because his opponent sucked hard. Only thing I keep from this TUF is how big Kamaru looks :shock: almost as big as his 230lbs brother..

Co-main.... Holy crap. Luque started aggressive as expected but got countered all day. Neal had an answer for everything and I thought he'd KO him in the 1st round. 2nd round, Neal changed completely and let Luque take over, it was so weird. In between the last rounds, Neal's coach had none of that shit and told him to fucking finish it. Boom! Neal got back to being the aggressor and destroyed Luque. It was refreshing to see a coach keep it completely real! Sad for Luque though and I see his career declining badly now.

Main, it was a pretty good fight! Started a bit slow as I expected but at the end of the day, both guys delivered. Hill overextended and got countered many times but he can clearly take a punch. Santos did well in the 3rd round with his wrestling but abandoned that in the 4th surprisingly (tired?) and it was a true war! Both guys gave it their all and Hill ended up on top. Not a late stoppage in my opinion.

What I want to see next: Neal vs Rakhmonov and Hill vs Ankalaev.

Hope you enjoyed the event 8)
