I suggest people track down Sandhagen vs. Alcantara. Marajo gumby'd one of Sandhagen's arms, Sandhagen somehow escaped, and then he proceeded to beat the everloving shit out of Marajo as payback.

Anders scraping that by with 15 seconds left on the clock was shocking, at least to me -- he wasn't impressing at all the entire rest of the fight for having those odds in his favor. Then the kick, and apparently him and the ref were psychically linked as they both declare the match over immediately haha

Man, lanky guys getting knocked out makes for the most brutal visuals. Vick looked like he was trying to hear if there were any of those shit worms from tremors under the octagon.

Holy fuck that KO. That was what I was expecting from Gaethje the last two times, and when we didn't get that ... I thought maybe Vick would pull this one off. Nope.

Sandhagen/Alcantara was awesome. Impressive wins from Figueiredo, Cortney Casey, & Gall. Also loved Calderwood's win.

Lots of good fights on the card and a rad KO in the main event. Vick looked good early but once Gaethje, whose footwork I'm not a fan of, got him against the cage a minute in it was not a good sign. But yeah, the Sandhagen/Alcantara fight was all sorts of bad ass.

Casey/Hill was really good but I had Hill over Casey. The last round was just about as fast and impactful as the first. 

I had the fight on mute because I was trying to watch three or four things at once. However, with no commentary to sway me, it looked like Angela Hill was regularly outlanding Casey.
