Tony Martin should savor being on the main card because his last (and only) appearance on one was on the Maia vs. LaFlare card in March 2015. He has been in the UFC since UFC 169 in February 2014. That's crazy considering he is way better than most of the fighters who have been prelim purgatory.

That's a very good win for Tony Martin (apparently now going by Anthony Rocco Martin). He is one of the most consistent fighters on the UFC roster so helpfully this gets him noticed so he doesn't go almost four years between main card appearances again.

I'm about ready to give up on ever picking against JDS again, but then they were suggesting Ngannou as a possible next opponent. His post-fight interview, and Bisping quoting it on the post show was the best though. Picked all the prelims right then blew the entire main card.

Bisping's comments on the Post-Fight Show about Tai's lack of a ground game were fucking priceless.

"First of all, learn some mount escapes."

I dunno how JDS survived those flurries against the cage because usually that spells the end for him. However, he hit Tuivasa right on the button and eventually got him out of there.

If that stoppage had happened to anyone but Tuivasa I'd think it was suspect, but good on the ref to notice that Tuivasa was not getting out of that mount and stopping the fight before JDS pummeled him into the mat.
