What's surprising is they haven't even really hyped him being on television. They did more for Sarafian vs. Strasser Kunimoto than Faber vs. Caceres. Faber is perhaps the biggest star (doesn't mean a whole lot but you get my point) below 155 that isn't named BJ Penn and Caceres is actually ranked at BW for the moment. That is really weird.

Have been watching from Santos/Camozzi onward and suddenly I am remembered why I haven't watched any of the last couple UFC FN cards.

I hadn't realized Uriah had a broken toe until after the fight. I don't think Rogan or Goldberg mentioned it on commentary or the cameraman didn't really try to focus on it.
