Starapoli vs Aldana was pretty blood and thunder. Not the most technical fight, and they peaked very early, but if you want a fight with two guys knocking lumps off each other, this was one of them.

Bandeny vs Arnett also had the fast start that slowly fizzles into two guys circling and picking occasional shots later on. Are they at altitude or something? Or is it inexperienced guys who shoot their bolts early just in these two fights?

I think Heinisch's ceiling is basically a mid tier middleweight who always has workman like performances. He will be also be able to finish fringe level UFC fighters impressively. So if you need to get rid of dead weight on the roster, he is your man.

Based on the post fight interview, the UFC really needs to get behind this dude. He has charisma in spades.

Silva FWIW is UFC alum Luis Henrique da Silva aka Frankenstein aka via hilarious Brazilian translation Frank Waisten Jr.

How charismatic is Johnny Walker? He walked into an Arena in Argentina representing both England and Brazil and still got cheered. And wasn't Khalil ranked top 15 fairly recently? It reminded me of Jon Jones vs Matt Hamill. He's a mainstay of the division, had some good fights with some good guys, let's see what this tall kid has got for him... Shit, he's dead!

There are just way too many holes in Khalil's game for him to be a top fighter, even in a division as weak/thin as LHW. I'm still a big fan of the guy and he's one of those always dangerous type of fighters that could turn somebody's lights out in an instant but between his lack of grappling/wrestling/cardio, I don't see how he can climb the rankings.

I want them to give Walker another fight soon so we can ideally see him pushed a little bit to see other facets of his game. My main concern is that bacne tho. I hope brother is clean.
