    This week in non-UFC MMA Rory MacDonald beat Curtis Millender in PFL with a submission in the first round,
    Reinier De Ridder beat Aung La Nsang for his second belt to be a two div champ and Kirill Grishenko beat Reug Reug (steroid-pumped African hype that made a ruckus on social media) in ONE MMA,
    some thought he was acting to get out of the fight due to poor cardio.

    Good win for Strickland over Jotko who was game.

    Cutelaba and Jacoby fought to a draw.

    The Georgians were dominant In their fights..Giga made quick work of the wily vet Cub Swanson..

    Reyes V Prochazka getting ready to square off.

    Prochazka is a stud, spinning elbow knockout against a game Reyes who is a good counterstriker with tremendous heart and chin.

    Cub is old for an FW, ouch, good job by Chikadze.

    Prochazka got hit a lot though, I don't know about that strategy against Jan.

    He just needs to improve his head movement a little bit and we will see something special. It's just a shame he has to fight Jan as I do not want either guy to lose :D.

    Prochazka seems to imply he is fond of Jan as well in the interview, his KOs over Volkan and Reyes who are not exactly fragile opponents have not been equaled by anyone else, even getting hit by Jan did not sleep Reyes like Jiri did.

    These LHWs are still disrespected because Reyes was robbed, which even most DWF media outlets and anyone who isn't a black Jones nuthugger agreed on. So a win against him isn't as spectacular as it would otherwise be but it's undeniable their wins were far more decisive.

    Jiri "Hands Down" Prochazka has 28 wins. 25 finishes --12 KOs and 13 TKOs. That is incredible. But the hands down style is really dangerous. Leaves him open to get knocked out by a fighter with higher level boxing skills. Jiri's last 2 opponents, Reyes and Volkan, were tagging him with punches. His biggest strength might be that iron jaw- like early Chuck Liddell. As long as he has that iron chin, it will be fun watching him fight.

    This looks at the medical aspect of the fight, may interest some.

    Jiri Prochazka Elbow FULL DAMAGE vs Dominick Reyes - Doctor Explains UFC Injury



    Shame Saturday's Sandhagen Vs. Dillashaw main event had to be replaced, Marina Rodriguez Vs. Michelle Waterson replaced it.

    Wonder why they could not just get a replacement for injured Dillashaw and save it.
