Well you guys had till 11 spoiler time!!!

Just when I had given up on the Brazilians Arantes with a clean knockout. Uriah Hall had me worried for a minute and I'm still wondering about him. Spitz with the over hand right damn all these finishes the prelims were flying. Only one that went the distance was Mercier with a decision win. Ledet won but how the hell that was a split instead of unanimous will forever boggle my mind. Usman with the straight right against mr moist will never forget Mores kissing an opponent from back control after a sub. Then we had Gillespie with the sub after a nice long fight very nice. Catch the rest in the morning then I'll post the video link to the fights.

Smith survived Lombard's mauling and finished him damn it was a spectacular night of fights. Lombard may be heading back to Bellator if this keeps up... Mike Perry continues the night of finishes I don't remember seeing him before I wouldn't have forgotten that rooster victory dance. Still not convinced about Rockhold even though he got Branch to tap to strikes. He just doesn't look like a champ like he's tired all the time. Oh well good night of fights now a two week break for the ufc.

Rockhold has great kicks and really good Bjj/grappling. His medium and close range striking is a weak point for sure. He's a really big guy. He damn near cuts off a leg to make 185. That's not gonna lend to having elite cardio, plus he got punched in the noodle a lot which is really tiring.
