One of y'all remind me to DVR this...damn social life.  How did Schevchenko vs. Pena get the main event over Cerrone vs. Masvidal?  Cowboy is the closest thing to a draw on this card, and that fight needs to be 5 rounds.  WAR MASVIDAL!

A title eliminator is probably going to be 5 rounds unless it's stuck in the middle of a PPV card or a co main.

That's a very deep card. Shevchenko's strength will be tested again. I am legitimately worried for Arlovski's chin. And we get a good test for Sterling. This is my kind of card.

Look forward to 3 fights on the main card and some fights on the prelims will try to steal the show.

Best UFC poster in a while. Like how it pays tribute to the original UFC logo and posters.

Donald Cerrone is one of my favourite ever MMA fighters, c'mon Cowboy!

Jordan Johnson looks like a solid prospect at 205. Very good wrestler.

Li vs. Nash was a damn fun fight.

These referees are just... got damn. Missed groin shot. The ref in the Li/Nash fight jumping on the KO'd Nash instead of Jingliang, letting Jingliang land a needless hammerfist. Is this because Colorado's rejection of the new rules?

This is not the showing either Aljo or Assuncao wanted.

I think it's time for Aljo to move camps, preferably maybe training with Almeida and Mark Henry. He has to learn how to create his own offense. I think at the top of the BW division, it's very hard to stay conservative all throughout a fight and win. I thought he edged Assuncao, but I have no problem really with the decision. Sterling's landed only one punch through the first couple rounds. Hard to win that way. 

Alvey vs. Marquardt was a decent enough fight. Marquardt was in great shape, but I don't think his body is responding well enough for him to show diverse techniques. Hence, why he basically fought in a boxing match close to the cage.

I expected a lot more out of Aljamain Sterling tonight regardless.  His striking is starting to remind me of Phil Davis.

He was a decent enough in the first 2 or 3 minutes of the final round (landed the three good right hands) but him leaning back and just throwing low kicks the prior two rounds ain't exactly the ideal way to fight. I think someone like Mark Henry could clean that up and have him use more than just movement.

Jason Knight turned in a hell of a performance. Never let Caceres get set.

Man, Ngannou lifted Arlovski out of the air with a left and a right that Ngannou didn't even intend to throw.

Francis Ngannou is heavyweight's best prospect in about forever.

Great performance from Masvidal. Cerrone looked out of sorts once Masvidal hit him solidly a few times.
