Gian Villante is one sloppy fighter.  

Is he really the dude we're going to call sloppy in that fight when his opponent was throwing punches from his knees? Safarov was coming from the Jersey pine barrens with some of those haymakers. Villante's strikes were not pretty, but his technique was clean enough to put Safarov out of the fight.

Fun brawl though for what it was.

Anderson needs more performances like this. He's clearly physically gifted, but he needs aggression after solidifying the takedowns. He didn't fuck around in the second round and was able to get O'Connell out of there like he needed to.

It's easy to have performances like that when you are fighting someone like Sean O'Connell who was lucky to have a spot on the roster at all.  

It's time to throw Francis Ngannou in there with a legit heavyweight.  He's looked fantastic so far and it's great to have a fresh, rising contender at heavyweight, but let's see how he fights against someone in there who has fought legit competition.
