The Morning After:
- So, Doane wins by SD, rather than UD. No biggie, I still mark this as 1 down 3 to go.
- Hall via UD – Bulls eye!
- The fight between Stefan Struve and Matt Mitrione was called off since Struve fainted in the back room. Hope all is well with the skyscraper!
- Ronda Rousey… I predicted a finish, the “usual” arm bar submission. but DAYUM! Ronda just seems to be scarier every time. This time she followed that beautiful toss with a barrage of punches and ended the fight 1 second short of all time record in a title fight. And yes gentlemen, that stat includes men. So next time you use the term “fights like a girl”, you may want to remember women’s MMA… Even though it was a TKO and not a sub, I’m taking the full point for a right result and a finish.
- Chris Weidman – Slaying legends seems to be his plan of action. His first 2 title defenses were against the very best, and he stepped up to the challenge. I predicted a TKO, but that was a long shot to begin with. One does not simply knocks Machida out. I’m taking half a point on this one and wondering who can beat this guy?…
3.5 out of 4 by results (1 fight was cancelled)
