Molly McCann has another face growing out of her head but that's not going to stop her from cutting a babyface promo.

Yes. That eye's a right mess. Meatball wins.

I get what Danny Roberts was trying to do but he was certainly pressing his luck following Silva down to the ground especially after he had already escaped five or six close submissions. You could see the outcome coming a mile away.

Reyes needed an "Oh shit!" moment to jump Marreta in the Jon Jones sweepstakes. He didn't get it.

Between Diakiese dropping Duffy and Edwards dropping Gunnar Nelson, there have been some nasty elbows landed on this card.

Jorge Masvidal spent the entirety of the lead up to this fight talking about being tired of the shenanigans.  I heard him say multiple times that he's not about the dumb shit...and Leon Edwards brought some dumb shit.

*subject to change if said shenanigans happen after the biggest win of my fighting career

What actually happened there? I can kind of see why Masvidal started throwing because Edwards hands come up right before that but it seemed strange for things to kick off so quickly.

Admittedly I don't follow anything at all between fights. I come here for my mma news, primarily posted by elsalv and before that sprewell. I will rarely watch a countdown show when I've got an hour to kill and it's a card I'm looking forward to but aside from that, I don't really follow what happens between fights or around fight camps. Anyway, my belaboured point is that Masvidal made me a fan in his post-fight interview. He's a guy who has been on my radar since the Bodog/Sengoku days but have never really cared about him before. I don't know what it was about that post fight speech but it just came across as a classy, mma veteran who has paid his dues in the sport and is aiming for a title shot. Now, I really want to see him get there.

re : Till, I like the guy but I do think they pushed him up the card a little too quickly. I get that that's a hard point to argue when he did take wins from Cerrone and Thompson and has had two big shows sold around his name. However, it was pretty clear from his undercard performances that he was good but more importantly, he was going to be marketable so they gave him a big opportunity early. Not saying it would have made a big difference, but part of me would like to see the alternate timeline where he has a more standard progression to the ranked fights.

I am not sure if this was what sparked the fist fight but apparently during the media day for this card, Masvidal called Edwards "the other guy from England". Edwards called out the winner of the main event and especially been calling out Till the last couple times he (Edwards) fought for an all domestic main event one day in the UK but that went poof when Masvidal won. Naturally, he was gonna start shit with Masvidal.
