Why do people say FOTY? It wasn't even FOTN.

The only part of the fight that was really technical was the ground game. Benavidez' striking is not that good. He wings big shots that look more impressive because they are quick. The technique and timing is completely lacking. MM has quick, technical striking but no real timing or power. Both are missing 2 of the 4 required elements for effective striking.

The ground game was a different story. The scrambles were well done but looked better because they were faster than what people are used to seeing. But that's really it. All they had on the ground were the scrambles. The one real submission attempt wasn't even close to being locked in.

I just don't see why anyone found this fight to be amazing.

It's sad that the little guys never get their dues. There was some serious technical moves going on in that fight that is very hard to see because they're moving so fast. I mean Joe swinging and Demitrous sidestepping instantly was a beauty, getting out of super tight guillotine was another, etc.

They put on a show for everyone and got booed. That's wack.
There wasn't any moment where they stalled. It was non-stop movement.

It's insane that whatever forum I'm on the Flyweights are just "those little guys". Where's the respect?!!

That fight was awesome!

There was a super tight guillotine in there? I hope you're not referring to the one in the 4th round.

I was enjoying it, really seemed like the top level of the weight class going at it but Rogan was getting on my nerves making it seem less competitive than it actually was. But when he couldn't believe the crowd was booing and could only explain it by saying they only want to see bloody finishes, I couldn't disagree with him. Maybe the smaller weight classes' fighters' skills would be more appreciated earlier in the card when the crowd is a little less inebriated.

It was alright but I hate going into a fight knowing with certainty that it will end in a decision. Good back and forth, but honestly it wasn't that great.
