    Yeah it's going to be a solid night for fight fans, I know I'll be switching to that as soon as the classic ends.

    Teixera is a such a overrated striker, underrated grappler kind of fighter. Murked Cirkunov on the ground

    Perry has all the talent in the world but he's a bit lacking in the smarts department. I feel he still has a lot of improvement to do game plan wise before he can be a contender. Unless he wants to be the new Diego Sanchez and be a blood and guts mid card guy.

    I think Perry is making real good improvements. Liked his jab, head movement and much MUCH better pressure footwork (from the time he lost to Jouban). He absolutely has potential to be champ one day, as long he doesn't go to jail for something ridiculous. He definitely needs to improve his cardio management and his ability to fight off the back foot.

    And a killer left hook sends Lamas to dream land. I hate it when a guy that missed weight gets a win but this was pretty impressive.

    This should be interesting. Dos Anjos doesn't strike me as belonging in this weight class. But we shall see!

    Two of the better pure strikers out there. Major size advantage for Lawler, which could play a big part in the fight.

    Lawler is pressuring. If Lawler can force RDA on the backfoot, that should be Lawler's win. RDA is very much a forward pressure fighter

    Love this! Smaller, more technical fighter against a bigger, more powerful one. RDA doing a great job so far, but busted up a bit.

    Dos Anjos is punishing that front leg but Lawler is doing a good job of no selling it.

    Robbie Lawler is notorious slow 1rst round fighter. The real test for RDA is now when Lawler has information on RDA's pattern

    Robbie Lawler is really sneaky protecting himself on that RDA flurry. RDA really didn't land many clean strikes the head. Lawler is one of the best head defense striker in MMA

    This is where it's harder for RDA. His blows are more easily absorbed by the bigger man; Lawler able to take those where a smaller man may have wilted.

    RDA is looking really great against the savviest striker of the division. 3-0 RDA. Very impressed with RDA's work on the clinch and his work on the backfoot

    RDA is confortably ahead at this point but Lawler is super dangerous, he can end this at any time if RDA slows down.

    RDA picking him apart. Lawler seems to have a knee problem.
