    - Jim Miller and Sanchez showed there is still some life in the "old-guard" of LW gatekeepers (no disrespect)

    - Geof Neal is crisp like Lays™. Would like to see him up against Curtis Millinder next.

    - Rivera came back with confidence after a brutal KO loss, Then Sterling showed us kneebars are still a thing. THese two should fight for sure.

    - Tatiana Suarez is an absolute ANIMAL and I think she is the most dangerous fight for Rose right now. Relentless grappling and tenacity.

    - Abdul Razak Alakazam has some serious KO power. One to watch for - should get a bigger name for his next one.

    - Andrade hits like a man

    - Nico Montano and Yair Rodriguez rock/paper/scissors vs eachother to see who gets to dress as The Cowardly Lion for Halloween

    - Brandon Davis actually gave Zabit some looks and was landing, but Zabit showed us once again to be the devil's faun, submitting Davis with a kneebar (2nd on the night which makes it crazier)

    - Woodley deserves the respect that gets withheld from him. He's well rounded, dynamic, and refuses to accept an outcome other than victory. Till should go to MW imo, his stock not too badly hurt but his hype surely halted. Woodley should have never been the underdog in this one $$$ :)))

    What I saw tonight from Woodley made me even more confident that Colby not only beats him, but stops him in the later rounds.

    Woodley did nothing in the first round. His bad cardio hasn't improved, and threw lots of missed punches.

    I also think Colby beats Tyron.... but tonight Woodley was close to perfect. Surely the lines will be even wider now for Colby and more money to be made.

    You can't be serious. Woodley would turn Colby's head into hamburger meat.

    The chick fights were all awesomely brutal. Tatiana steamrolled, Khabib-style...Andrade steamrolled, Axe Murderer-style...Aldana/Pudilova steamrolled each other, Korean Zombie-style.

    My takeaway from the card as a whole was it was entertaining and action packed, despite not having the top tier star power going for it.

    Woodley is a far better fighter than people give him credit for
    Should be higher P4P, less than top 5 is an insult

    Holloway
    GSP
    TJ

    Are all beneath him

    This card delivered big time. All the douches complaining about it before it even happened don't know what the fuck they're talking about. Abraham Lincolnmegadov who looked like he was pried out of a crypt did nasty things culminating in pulling a leg up like it's a rotten tree stump and bending it backwards over the guy's head until he felt his hamstrings being ripped to shreds. Tyron 'Mr. Excitement' Woodley dominantly retained his title via aggression, a powerful right hand & wizard grappling ending with some combination D'arce / Magic choke.

    Fight of the night: Aldana-Pudilova - a bloody epic mess. KO of the night: Jessica Andrade. Performance of the night: Tatiana Khabiba Suarez. All ya'all who whine like babies about women's fights can suck it. Re-watch Rivera-Dodson and go back to sleep.

    I've been a fan for a while. It's a shame that a few boring fights and him turning heel has caused so many fans to hate him. He should always fight like that. He puts the stamp on kids when he does.

    Hmmm well I definitely agree with GSP. The man lost to Hendricks retired then beat Bisping. SHouldn't be on the p4p list.

    TJ I think I'd agree too, although TJ's last performance was scary good.

    Holloway I'd probably put above Tyron. More-so for what he's done on his WAY to the title, not for his defenses (or lack there of)

    The skill is there but Holloway has been too inactive lately for me, my opinion could change if he runs over Ortega

    Right now I'd put Tyron #2 behind DC
    No fanboi shit
    I'm a far bigger fan of Conor, Holloway and TJ but Tyron continues to beat everyone they put in front of him and this performance was pretty flawless.
    A lot of people shitting on Till now but I think it was a bigger test than Colby will be, dangerous striker.

    Agree to disagree, I think Colby's volume will give Tyron fits. Volume and pressure over technique in this one.
