Aubin-Mercier can fight on TV when he is facing someone willing to quit at the first sign of danger. His fellow compatriots? Not so much. Also, how is Bruno Carioca getting fights on TV still?


At least Rory went out and did what he was suppose to do.

Tumenov got a nasty KO on Dwyer nailing him with 2 brutal head kicks.


It was video game violence.


Got hit with one and got back up. Then the second one hit and a coffin nail came with it.



It was pretty amazing that neither head kick really knocked Dwyer out.  It was the shot on the ground that momentarily shut his lights off.

So, Lawler vs. MacDonald II for the interim title after Hendricks gets injured and pulls out of the fight?


Everytime I come to this section of the board, I am scared that I missed a post on the MMA Talk thread where Hendricks's people announce that he's broken his hand again or pulled his groin while in training.


If that happens and there is some interim title shenanigans again, i am very hopeful that Lawler will put Rory down a second time.
