Diamond vs. Mitchell was a good fight would have been great with a different 3rd round. 

Gunther controlled top position for the majority of the fight and had to survive a flurry of strikes at the end 

Pena showed if not for the injury he could have been in the finals. 

Montana De La Rosa vs. Rachael Ostovich was my favorite fight as De la Rosa said after the fight who doesn't want to see 2 hot girls who happen to be moms throw down. The 1st 2 rounds were standup based then we got the amazing exchanges on the ground in the 3rd round we were expecting coming in.

Adesanya absolutely clowned Brad Tavares and was grew more dominant as the fight went along. I was most impressed by his takedown defense. Everytime Tavares went for one, it was like he was running into a brick wall. I think Tavares was waiting for Adesanya to fade but it never happened.
