    Just turned on the PPV and watching these two fight. What a refreshing fight....
    Holland is goofy as fuck.
    Even Joe and Cormier are adding to the entertainment...

    I miss entertaining fights like this

    Old school MMA fight...Some good striking and good Top vs bottom game...Reminds me of Fedor vs Nog.

    Holland is just eating shots for 2 rounds. In addition Holland has his left eye close to shutting plus he took a grazing nut shot going into the third.

    Santos seems to be on his way to a majority decision.

    Thiago deserves a lot of respect for taking this fight. A veteran like him could bitch and moan and ask for bigger names but the guy fights like all the time against anyone.

    Instant fan of Holland. He looked a solid 30lbs smaller than Santos

    I don't blame them for being gassed they both had a lot of output in the first 2 rounds.

    Pay attention UFC fighters, this is how you're supposed to fight when you're the opening fight of a PPV.

    Holland sucked. His stand up game looked disastrous.

    Holland is an interesting addition to the MW division. Impressed w his toughness especially in his first fight in the UFC against a savage like Santos. Will be watching him. Bw Adesanya, Borrachina and him, I like the new MW division crop.
