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.

I'd even go so far as to argue its a far bigger fight than Struve/Mitrione

It's a bigger fight than anything on the main card except the co-main and main itself.

I haven't seen something like that since Miguel Cotto TKO'd and subsequently retired Justin Juuko.

Roop is done surely... Embarrassing

Also that Casey video is amazing. Didn't see the fight. Hopefully that's his walkout music though?

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.

DC tonight tells you exactly how interesting some of these prelims have been:

I think Struve should definitely hang them up.

Wow, nothing like a "three judges see it entirely different" decision to remind you that, yes, you are watching MMA.

Having had to perform after having panic attacks, I wouldn't wish anybody to have to fight after one. Jeepers.

Yeah, he didn't finish, but...OH MY GOD URIAH HALL'S TOE WHAT THE HELL

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.

Edwin, they focused on it during the entire timeout between rounds 1 and 2. That was sick.

I was being sarcastic, sorry.

So how quickly does Dana announce Ronda headlining UFC 176?

Alexis Davis entrance was a lot longer than the fight itself.

Oh my bad.

 

Anyway, I turned my head during the Rousey fight and missed it. Fuck, had to watch the replay.

Just when you think Rousey can't get more dominant...
