Bahamondes is my favorite human being not named CM Punk right now.  Dude did not want to win by decision. He kept looking for the finish even when Roberts tried to eat up time on the ground.

I think the gentlemen's agreement to just ride out the rest of the round if it's the final round and less than 15 seconds left is no longer a thing anymore. And I like that.

Chang Sung Jung did not get that memo.

Did I hear that right.  Is this guy's fight nickname the fucking Water Buffalo?

The Water Buffalo just got counterpunched into oblivion.

It looked Knight's hand only moved three inches before touching the guys face. Fuckin bananas KO.

Even the ladies are shooting for that Performance of the Night bonus.   What a beautiful KO.  That overhand left was filthy.

God, this won't be one of those cards where the prelims are epic and the main card is snooze, will it?

I probably just jinxed it.

If you just walk away from your opponent and just stare at them with your hands down, it's probably going to result in that.

Malecki was totally done at that point. Nunes had survived her best and it looked like Malecki wilted from the comeback beating. Good stuff.

In the replay, Malecki locks eyes with Nunes as to say, "Shit...don't you dare throw something."

At the very least I can't imagine Cannonier/Gastelum putting on a boring fight. Both guys should be desperate enough to go for broke.
