    They've been pushing Anders a bit and this is one of those fights that's set up for him to make a name for himself off of a former great. Machida has looked really bad against top competition but Anders is nowhere near that level so it'll be interesting to see how he looks in this one. His chin looks done though so he's probably going to sleep if Anders connects.

    Dodson/Munhoz looks like a good fight on paper. I have no idea who Shevchenko's opponent is but this clearly looks like a warm up fight for her before they give her the title shot at 125 lbs. Smith has been on a roll lately and he can put on some entertaining fights so that might be one to watch.

    I'm wondering if this is Lyoto's last fight

    Dodson/Munhoz is off after Munhoz missed weight.

    Desmond Green has managed to escape some very dicey situations so far.

    Des Green's hair is confusing Marc Goddard and Prazeres so badly with the back of the head. how do you even know where the back of his head is with all that excessive hair. The back of the head zone is already small enough in MMA lol

    Yamasaki is useless as a ref.

    That went as expected. Valentina will be the champ as soon as they set up the title fight.

    Yamasaki is awful. He would've just let her continue to get beat on if Valentina didn't go for the submission.

    The kind of fight where the matchmaker and ref both have some explaining to do.

    I'm guessing Montano might take a few more months to recover after watching that.

    Machida really need to avoid attacking in a straight line. he got caught badly there. just keep the lateral movement and throw leg kicks for now.

    Machida's chin looks done to me. Lyoto's consciousness looks to be fading everytime he's getting hit clean

    Tough one to score but 2-1 for Anders, I guess. I don't know why he keeps going for the takedown after he catches Machida and has him against the cage.

    Anders is probably winning this fight, but who really knows. He hasn't been overly impressive but Machida is just backing off.

    I don't know who won, but that fight was tough to watch. I'll probably give Anders the last 4 rounds, but it wouldn't surprise me to see a split decision.

    Does anyone on the East Coast actually stay up until 1AM to watch these fights? No idea why the UFC runs them so late.
