I would give FOTN to Maia vs Rory, POTN to Pyle and Thompson.

Highly likely that Dana gives POTN to Rousey though.

Rogan is a fanboy just like the rest of us. It's cool when he agrees with or thinks like you and infuriating when he doesn't. I guess that's the cross we bear for having an actual FAN of the sport also be its biggest commentator.

Joe is a fan, for better or worse. Goldberg is the hack.

Can you get POTN to fighters from different fights? If so I thought Wonderboy was amazing tonight.

edit - I read your post wrong, scratch this post.

Yes you can. And Thompson is wonderboy. Stephen Thompson.

And that is who id give Performance of the night to also. I made a thread about Stephen because i felt he was a bit forgotten and i was surprised to see that someone was picking Whittaker to beat Stephen bad. I expected Stephen to win and even said he keeps it on the feet and lights Whittaker up but i did not expected a first round finish.

I earned some awesome FFL points today.

Your FFL did pretty well tonight, sideways. Good job!

I admit, I was on the fence about Whittaker vs. Thompson and thought Whittaker would try to once again expose Thompson's weak ground game to earn a decision. Apparently, that wasn't in the cards and he got demolished. Props to Thompson, his standup is extremely impressive. I just hope he continues to work hard on his flaws because I'd hate to see his obvious skills go to waste due to him not balancing out his entire game.

Glad to see Rousey pick up the win by something other than an arm bar.

A "bad" event? I don't think so. Extremely average or underwhelming? I'd say so.
I didnt say YOU said the event was ruined. I was talking in a more broad matter like the original post you quoted about how alot of people disliked the event and felt it was ruined.


Personally i could NEVER get a sour taste in my mouth after a fight if i already knew exactly what i was getting before hand. I maybe had a slight sour taste after Rousey/Sara due to the early stoppage and wanting to see the fight continue on longer since it was looking like a good one. But other then that the event went how i expected it to go except better with more finishes. I knew going in that the Cormier/Cummins fight was a gimmie fight just so DC can fight because he really wanted to. So i wasnt expecting something else thus i wasnt left with a sour taste.
If i went in thinking Cormier/Cummins was a real challenge or whatever then yea maybe id have a sour taste... but the fight was exactly what i expected it to be except Cormier got a nice finish instead of a outclassing unanimous decision.

Yea i can see why someone would think that. No arguments here.

I expected the event to be boring and underwhelming (The event felt like a fight night to me). Instead i found the fights to have been fun and better then what i expected them to be. Underwhelming sure but still fun.


For me put it this way

I wasnt willing to pay for this event but if i was i still would have went in not expecting that fun of an event and i would have been pleasantly surprised not disappointed. Like i said i think its all in how you look at it and what expectations you have going into it.

Oh, Jesus Christ, out of all the possible outcomes... Ronda via armbar, McMann via knockout, Ronda via knockout, McMann via some sort of miracle submission and a five round war... why did it have to end this way?

Who reffed this fight?

Well, he did.

Must suck to fight your heart out on the prelims, then watch this dufus give 50k for "Performance OTN" to someone who spent 1 minute in the clinch and threw a knee.

These "OTN's" should be voted by the fans on their website after events, but no that would make to much sense and take away from the big mans ego
