Wow Cat is number one contender Miesha spent too much time studying against Judo instead of striking.
Gotta love the ufc they already have Rhonda v Cat TUF graphics.
Kelvin and the little engine that could thing was incredible. I figured his take downs would make the day.
Thought Faber had a good match, there seems to be a new crusher in the heavyweight division and Cat is deadly with the knees.
Looked to me more like she gassed after the first two rounds trying to control such a strong girl. Wish she'd shown a little more class afterwards instead of bitching about an early stoppage - if the ref hadn't stopped it another one of those knees would likely have put her in the hospital. She showed against Rousey she's too stubborn/dumb to know when she's been beaten.

Losing was probably the best thing for Hall. He's clearly got talent, but he fought like he'd swallowed all the hype and asked for seconds, and this will hopefully be an ego check for him. He seems to not be all that effective when he doesn't get to be the bully, so he'd better work on his defensive wrestling like his life depends on it. I think he can do well at MW, but he's got some mental maturing to do first.
I enjoyed Tate/Zingano, but Tate is nuts to protest that stoppage. She ate four or five clean knees to the face and was in bad shape, and she dropped after the elbow. She can try to play off like she was going for a takedown all she wants, but she didn't even start crawling towards Zingano's legs until she'd already hit the mat from the elbow. She was toast.
A lot of the discussion I've seen is focusing on Uriah Hall fucking up, but I have to say Gastelum seems to be a really tough and hard working dude who learns like a sponge. I'm looking forward to seeing him at welterweight. He'll be the 170 lbs Mark Hunt.
"She has to get her tit.. Hips..."
Looking forward to many more slips like this in the future.
"She's grabbing a hold of her breast... Neck..."
"She's going for a ****... Crotchlift."
"She's playing those funbags like bongo drums.
Wait, no. What I meant to say was... Yeah, that's what I meant to say."
