Damn, it's this weekend already! Looking forward to seeing Cerrone fight again. Poor Ed, he's gonna get mauled. Looking closer at the card... it's awesome. Benavidez and Yahya is going to be awesome and I'm also looking forward to see Miz in action.

Tonight's card is gonna be amazing.

So many close match-ups on paper that could go either way. I can't wait!

Man, this card is pretty good. If I didn't have to work at 2am tomorrow...I'd stay up and watch it. :-/

He would have won that fight without any of those shots, I know they were bad especially the first and last, but Ratcliff wasn't offering much to think he stood a shot from round 2 on.

It still takes something away from the fight..he just look really douchey during the fight. I was rooting for him this time but I hope he loses his next one no matter who fights him.

Did anyone else think that the stoppage came too fast in the Benavidez/Yahya fight? I didn't really think that Yahya was out after the first shot, but the ref was already diving in for the save.

Was going to point that out too, he was far from being out. He was getting up as they stopped the fight. WAY too fast of a stoppage.

After the numerous nut shots, Cerrone looked like a dick to taunt Ratcliff. Not only that, but he didn't even wait for Ratcliff to recover, he did it right after the fight resumed.

i thought that, but when you see the replay Yahya LOOKED totally out of it, he was trying to get back on his feet and he was probably doing decently, but his face looked like he was out, the ref had to make a quick call and i guess she was right.

pretty much lost all respect for Cerrone, obv the nazi ties thing is just a rumor but the way he acted towards both Ratcliff and Herb Dean was at best disrespectful. I just dont like this guy and would love him to get crushed, even if he isnt a racist he acted like a cocky dickhead after doing multiple infractions and his opponent acted nothing but respectful the whole time and was very game to get the fight going again.

I did laugh when in the 3rd it kinda looked like Cerrone was going for a dap and Ratcliff just flew in with a knee.... haha too bad it didnt hit flush and KO Cerrone, woulda made my year.

He was doing it most of the fight if i remember right, Ratcliff was backpedalling out of the fight a couple of times and Cerrone stopped and taunted him, i think that's the right approach instead of following and maintaining the unaction.

The WEC brings it again, sweet night of fights :thumbsup:

I think your reading too much into it tbh. He was very respectful to Bendo, both pre and post fight.

Whats this 'nazi ties' thing all about? Havent heard of it.

Thats what I thought at 1st but not after watching the replay.

Maybe a bit early of a stoppage but not bad imo.

I didn't really think that Yahya was out after the first shot, but the ref was already diving in for the save.
After such a clean KD, any good ref would have reacted the same way she did.
