It should be noted that Lucas Martins has had four cancelled bouts since his last fight: Johnny Eduardo (both fighters got injured), Caraway (Caraway was injured), Aljamain Sterling (Martins was injured), and now Alers being out due to injury. That's a lot of work for Lucas Martins of all people. But hey, you can't say they ain't trying to find fights for these guys. It's like the antithesis of late era Strikeforce.

Great main event.  Decent co-main event.  A couple good fights on the prelims I want to watch (Smith vs. Duke; Healy vs. Tibau).  I wonder if getting that win over Miller taken away just destroyed Healy's confidence.

Great fight card overall.  Like the idea of Nurmagomedov vs. Cerrone for their next fight.  


I feel bad for Pat Healy, but it is probably time for him to fight elsewhere and try to get his confidence back.  Seems like he still hasn't recovered from getting the Miller win and bonuses taken away.
