Boetsch grabbed and held onto Costas shorts whilst desperately trying to to him down, despite being told by the ref three times to let go he still didn't.

^Nothing bad, but a headbutt caused Tim to have blood going in his eyes and a nasty eye poke put the nail in the coffin.

Costa Vs Okami....Okami could use the win.

Great win for Costa. Not too bothered that it took a broken hand, a headbutt and an eye poke to get it done. This was still the most exciting fight so far on the main card. I'm watching the replay right now, Jim Miller/Lauzon up next.

Circumstance just won't leave Tim alone. He was winning the fight pretty convincingly until he sustained multiple injuries. But to be fair, it was circumstance that gave Tim his victories over Okami and Lombard.
Boetsch will be back. I doubt he'll ever make a run at the title, but he'll string together a few more solid wins at Middleweight.

The circumstance in the Okami fight being Boetsch knocking him the f*** out.

I'd love to hear the explanation of what 'circumstance' caused Lombard to have no clue how to deal with someone who doesn't just walk towards him chin first.

I'm not trying to discredit Tim's victories at all, but circumstance plays a part in almost every fight. It just so happens that it worked out in favor of Boetsch twice, while it worked against him tonight. Boetsch may hve knocked the shit out of Okami but let's not forget that he was being dominated and was nearly finished on multiple occasions by a guy who is a notoriously defensive fighter. Again, I reiterate, not saying it means anything with regard to his win, but Boetsch's hail mary proved to be a lucky one.

As far as his fight against Lombard goes, I am of firm belief that Lombard was not himself that night and had octagon jitters. Not saying it matters, not saying it's a good excuse, but look at Lombard's fight with Boetsch versus his fight with Palhares. Two completely different fighters almost.

Tonight, Boetsch was on the wrong end of circumstance. He's a better fighter than Costa, and as winning convincingly up until broken hand, the accidental headbutt, and eyepokes. Had none of those things happened, I'm almost positive that Tim would have won. But shit happens, and it happened a lot to Boetsch tonight.

"Do you wanna quit?"

"**** no."

Boetsch may never be the most talented but that guy's got mad heart, can't help but like him.

Nope. Palhares was a gimme fight for Lombard. A guy who wouldn`t be able to get him down and has nothing standing.

I`d like to see Bisping vs Lombard just to put an end to the hype as Boetsch beat him by implementing the `Bisping` almost perfectly.
