I must say rather disappointing fight with Jan and Pereira that ended in a controversial SD for Alex. Jan seems to be slow here and his grappling stamina has suffered as seen in the Ankalaev fight, those who grapple will find success against Pereira. I expected a finish to happen in this fight.

Crazy headkick KO from Gaethje, didn't really want either guy to lose but that was picture perfect.

Disappointed in Jan tonight as well. Cardio wasn’t there down the stretch.

Gaethje and Kopolov with nasty head kick KOs!!

Tony Ferguson isn’t full White but was always an impressive fighter, at one point. Now a 6 fight losing skid to end his career is down right ugly and kinda sad. Fight game can be brutal.

Matthews won his caste matchup. Pretty well rounded but what’s up with the
“Celtic Kid” turning to Islam?!

Semelsberger was KOd by Medic! That caught me by surprise. Good fight going back and forth for a while. Announcers were saying Sem, was an all Conference DB at Marist. His playing weight was 6’1 225!

Chiesa is a great grappler but doesn’t look like he could win a bar fight with his standup.

Sick win for Gaethje! Congrats to him. I love how he is so humble and grateful. Frankly, most of the fighters tonight have been extremely sportsmanlike and gracious.

I am waiting for Jiri to return at light heavyweight. This was a fun card though for sure (i didn't pay for it though)
