    Good finish for Jordan Wright, Schnell Vs. Bontorin on and the co-main should start soon.

    Co-main starting.

    Tony was too old.

    Chandler was doing so well, almost finished Oliviera in a guillotine and nearly finished him with strikes later in the first round, but got caught in the second round and the ref stopped it. :rolleyes:

    Oliviera was in line for a shot regardless but Chandler could have shocked the world again, with Chandler being relatively small for his weight class but having great power either would have gotten the finish eventually.

    Chandler had that with about a minute left in the first period. At the time I wasnt even concerned about the finish as he was dominating him. In hindsight he should have kept landing small shots to force a ref stoppage as the 2nd round was a shocking come from behind victory.

    I think Chandler should have let Oliveira stand up and finished him in the first round (even if he was finished by strikes himself) instead of let him recover later on.

    I will not disregard Chandler for this loss since he really did nearly just walk in to the UFC and take the belt.

    Chandler's weird but I root for him over mystery meat anyways. A lot of views on this thread, only the Poirier Vs. McGregor 2 thread with 37 replies has more views as of recent threads, this one only had 7, now 8 with nearly a thousand views.
