Damn...Niko Price looked completely done and then he dropped Means with a nasty right hook and pummeled into unconscious. Means might have suffered a bad ankle injury on the way down similar to what happened to Phil Baroni and Dudu Dantas.

Karma. Means hit him with three open hand slaps. He needed to get melted.* Fun show. I didn't have any issue with Kunitskaya getting the nod. I thought she won the first two.  On the other hand, judges had to have been on their phones for Rothwell- Ivanov. Derrick Lewis proving the old saw that a wounded animal is the most dangerous, but Junior still having the stuff to put him down. Crazy.

* Not that I think he had an ankle injury coming.

Rothwell vs. Ivanov was one of those fights where by virtue of it being a sloppy brawl where one guy is landing most of the blows but still getting hit fairly often, the likelihood of someone getting jobbed was pretty high. 

Sidenote: Those USADA failures have done their number on Rothwell aesthetically.

Finally watched the Lewis fight. 

I've never wanted anyone to win a fight more than when Lewis was bent over, dodged a punt to the face, and landed a punch.
