I don't mean it in a derogatory way, more of a disappointment. Like in say an injury finish...sure you can still call it a win, anything can happen in a fight. Say like if Sonnen survived the Jones round and was declared champ....or better yet the Maia/DHK fight, two finishes that just shouldn't have happened.

So if 10 finishes happen....that's what i'd call it.

Hope Lawler, Lombard, and T Wood all win by KO.

And we get a filler prelim that is "fight of the night" worthy like Bermudez/Hettes or Story/Kelvin or both!

I get what youre saying, i tend to feel the same about great wars that end in split decisions where there isnt a real loser and someone gets shafted. That said i also agree with flash koes (especially very early in the fight) and wondering if the fight would always play out that way but would never call a ko artist landing a ko a fluke. But if jake gets a ko, yes that is 100% a fluke

P.s. i like your av

In a way I hope lawler and condit both win, because a fight with those would be absolute fireworks. But then again, Condit & Hendricks was a scrap the first time and probably would be again.
