    I will be rooting for Santos, Holm and Masvidal tonight. I don't like Askren because he is a big mouthed member of the tribe.

    Masvidal KO'd Askren in a new UFC record of 5 seconds. Brutal.

    Rockhold was also Knocked out, by the Big Pole Jan Blachowicz.

    Unfortunately so was Holm.

    It's crazy, Nunes is just walking through everyone right now. That Shevchenko girl is the only one who has given her any competition recently.

    Shame to see Askren get knocked out cold like that. The guy just jumped into him....I'm kind of inclined to say it was just a weird unlucky moment.

    I have to respectfully disagree. I think Masvidal had him scouted to a T. Knew Askren wouldn't want to throw hands and would be ducking in for a takedown.

    I think Thiago's leg injury saved John's ass. That was a very close fight.

    Yep the ko was similar to the ones that happened in the first few PPV's when guys used to charge at more skillful guys and the losing guy would be out for a count of 1000.

    Jon Jones is not as good without the drugs. Thiago nearly beat Jones with a torn ACL, MCL, PCL and meniscus. He went after Jon's long skinny legs with kicks, but hurt himself after only one round. If he could have been a full strength and kept grinding at those legs, there is no way Jones would have made it through the entire fight.
