    Sergei spivak vs tai tuivasa should have been a heavyweight snooze fest but it ended up actually being a fun fight, I expected the two of them to gas and prance around each other for the unanimous decision.

    Ben askren vs Robbie Lawler was fucking insane, and the fact that Robbie Lawler slammed askren on his head and got ko'd is crazy, but what's even more crazy is that herb Dean didn't stop it and he ended up getting Robbie in a nasty spot. I know it was an early stoppage and all that but Robbie wasn't getting outta that shit, if herb waited a few more secs he would'a been unconcious imo.

    Ben askrens fight with masvidal also sounded Boring aside from the shittalk but we all know how that one went...

    jones gustafsson 1, gustafsson didn't look that great before so everyone thought was easy money for jones, I still thinks gustafsson is overrated AF, but he was close to win that fight

    Jones vs Thiago Santos. Thought it would be a 50-45 wipeout for Jones

    Garbrandt vs Cruz. I was salty that Cruz got schooled like that, but it sure was more entertaining that I thought.

    Everyone thought Ferguson vs. Lando was going to be a squash match. Turned out to be a hell of a fight.

    Shields vs Maia, on paper it seems like it would have been a shitty kickboxing match, instead it was a great even ground battle.

    This is my first pick as well because everyone (myself included) thought the second fight would be just like the first and nobody looked forward to it.

    The 2nd and 3rd fights were so great that many people actually forget the first fight altogether.

    Fitch vs Alves. Fitch is normally boring but for some reason when he fought Alves he was very entertaining.
