Awesome night of fights at RFA 2. Big wins for MMA legends Gilbert Yvel, Mo Smith, and Tara LaRosa! Can't wait to do this again real soon! Thanks for watching, Sherdoggers. You guys rock!

How did the Cochrane fight go? I know he lost but was it dominating for his opponent (who I had never heard of before) or was it a competitive fight prior to the submission?

Cochrane was getting the better of the clinch work and wrestling against the cage, when Wright pulled guard with a deep Guillotine Choke attempt. Cochrane showed great composure and worked his way out of it. When Wright took Cochrane's back, Cochrane again seemed calm and didn't really panic. He had never been submitted before, but Wright locked up the RNC very deep. Cochrane went out on his shield, didn't tap, and went to sleep. It was a big win for Wright, but Cochrane will be back!

Good lord I thought Houston was never going to wake up. I hope he is OK.

Wonder how many more times Yvel would have hit a clearly-unconscious man if the ref hadn't pulled him off.

Face flop, laying on top of his own arms, not moving ... better keep punching, just in case.

I realize the rules are to keep going until the ref stops you, but, geezus, when someone is just obviously unconscious ... although I guess I can't say I lost as much respect for Yvel as I did for Hendo (Bisping) and Rampage (Wandy)

Yvel was very respectful afterward. I think maybe the adrenaline was flowing or something.

Yvel very respectfull. I think he was shocked about the furious k.o. 1 hit too many but imho but that's Yvel fighting DNA.

Nevertheless good fight

Houston was lighting Yvel up before the KO, too be he couldn't get the win.
