    Another card that just got destroyed by injuries. The main event has changed three times since it was announced and a couple of other main card fights fell through as well.

    Barao missed weight by close to 6 lbs as his fall continues. The fight is still going on though.

    No one really cares about this card, huh? Can't blame you.

    I like the main event. I hope Anders wins, but I kind of like Santos here. Anders was very tentative in his last fight and that won't work vs Santos.

    It wasn't long ago that a card with Lil Nog, Barao, Evan Dunham, Leites, Lombard, Ben Saunders, and Charles Oliviera would be a great card. It's a weird one - you have two fighters (Leites and Dunham) who are retiring after this fight. It's also a ton of "recognizable name vs someone you've never heard of". I'll be watching but I have no idea what to expect.

    I know nobody is watching this, but Trinaldo with a vicious knee to the body to finish Dunham's career.

    I love a good body shot TKO. I didn't even realize what happened at first.

    Another submission win for Oliveira. He can't compete with the top of the division but he should still just stay at 155.

    Markos record looks like a lie detector test.

    I did score that for Markos though.

    Rodriguez has the type of skillset I hope we see more of in the woman's divisions. It seems like half the roster is sloppy grinders who will grind their way to decisions and it's really made for a ton of bad fights.

    I honestly thought Barao would be a GOAT

    Who knows what the judges in Brazil have but I think this should be even going into the third round.

    I'm surprised Barao waited as long as he did for the takedown.

    Great gameplan by Ewell, should be 29-28 for him. Barao is done.

    Good win for Ewell. He stuck with what worked.

    Barao looked awful. Just ate shot after shot standing up and it's hard to be impressed with the ground control when he came in closer to the FW limit than BW.

    I find him boring, the "smiling" thing is weird, he always looks out of shape, and he comes out to 'Train".

    I'm all-in for a 42 year old Lil Nog being in the top ten @ 205.

    Happy to see Lil Nog get it done. I didn't want to watch him take another beating.

    Oliveira is often involved in fun fights and that was no different.

    Another good test for Anders. I thought he beat Machida a couple fights ago and should still be undefeated.

    Santos is a much more developed fighter than Anders, but he's really slowing down. I think Anders can finish him here in 3 or 4.

    Weird finish for Santos. Wonder if those were all legal.

    Looked good on replay.. maybe. Anders took a ton of shots there in that last minute.
