Thiago Alves had didn't want to lose-itis.

Alves stayed in Florida with his family during Irma, but he couldn't get a flight out when he was suppose to. Lombard went days ahead of schedule, and it looks like Jotko who was gonna stay originally took an early flight out.

I would've probably given Hamilton 5-10 more seconds especially since I don't think that punch was that devastating, but you gotta show some sign that you're recovering AND still able to fight on.

maybe if Ledet came to fight he might've won. dude jabbed for 15 minutes and looked dejected he didn't get the win.

edit: oh, Ledet did win? my stream glitched for the announcement, but came back on when he was walking back. cruz made it sound like he lost

I remember reading Bloody Elbow's scouting report on the brightest prospects in MMA a few years back and they gushed about Usman's strength and wrestling ability. He's rounding out his game and welterweights should be scared now.

Usman spun Serginho to the ground as he was going down with that punch. 

Man, if you're a world champion in BJJ, you just gotta concede sometimes that a takedown would be the smart option even against another grappler.

So yeah, go ahead and book Usman vs. Dos Anjos and make that your title eliminator fight.  Makes sense.

There is a guy at Combat Club who might get a welterweight title shot soon, but I don't think it will be Usman.

I dunno why fighters take a fight with Anthony Smith. Not a worldbeater, but he always comes to fight and is super, super tough.

Anyone can beat Hector Lombard this point.  The dude is a joke and the most overhyped MMA prospect of all time.
