    But definitely had the round of the year. I hope Silva is ok after that, it was getting pretty brutal. Dude refused to drop

    The first round was fucking amazing. Up there with Diaz/Daley.

    2 minutes later Silva was still down in a heap on the mat. He took a lot of bonus punishment until he gave up. His corner might have wanted to save him a little earlier.

    First round was definitely one of the most exciting rounds I've ever seen.

    True, only first round was competitive. Second and third completely one sided.

    I agree with that. Round 1 was one of those legendary Diaz/Daley, Barry/Kongo, Guillard/Cerrone, Stann/Wanderlei type rounds
