Maness/Gravely was good. Maness looked pretty solid defending the takedown in the first, but then getsdropped with 3 seconds left. Saved by the bell only to return the favor for the win. Fun times.

With another ref, that gets waved off and ends after round 1.

It definitely looked bad and I thought when the ref went into to break it up he was actually ending it not just stopping it for the bell. Then when Maness got up he looked like a drunk at the party trying not to let anyone know he was drunk. Which I guess makes it an even more impressive recovery, because I thought he was getting dropped in 30 seconds in Round 2.

Moral victory at the end for Devin Clark, I guess. I mean getting absolutely man handled for 14 minutes and then getting a minute in the sun almost makes having your smile rearranged worth it.

Oh goddamn Anthony Smith fired up is fucking awesome. 

That Ryan Spann hype video about him feeling disrespected that folks didn't think he was ready for a main event aged poorly reeeeeal fast.

I like Spann and he's a solid LHW, but this firmly established what his ceiling is: perfect set up opponent for a high level gatekeeper or prospect.

Lionheart! Awesome victory for one of my favs to watch.

Ariane Lipski with her best performance, that punch she landed in the last couple minutes was killer. 

Epic comeback from Nate Maness!

Good to see a successful debut for "Cold Blooded" Erin Blanchfield, always liked her in Invicta

Anthony Smith looked really good on Saturday night, but I don't know I like the idea of a rematch with him and Rakic. Seems more like he should be angling for a fight with Jiri Prochazka.

I kind of feel like Smith should take Reyes' spot in the top 5 now.
