Ugh, I love Don Frye and Bas Rutten, it's 2010 and we get to hear them again!!!
Also, Daley's TDD is still not very good!
EDIT:OMG, the commentary is going to make this my go-to for events to watch when i'm in bed. I could listen to this banter for a 10 round decision easily.
DOUBLE EDIT: When fast, explosive punchers punch fast and explosively, everyone goes "ouuuuuuu, ahhhhhhhhhhh", and 90% of people watching, don't even really watch to see if the punches land. That is somethign that frustrates me. /drunk rant
TRIPLE EDIT: FRYE: "just don't turn your back on Daley on your way out the door." - about Masvidal when he was leaving the cage - thank you for saving the day Don
