Barao vs Dillashaw won it, but ????
Which fight on the card SHOULD have won FOTN?
Barao vs. Dillashaw.
Barao vs Dillashaw
Wow, great thread
They picked the correct fight.
I seen a lot of complaining about this, i have no idea why. I personally thought barao vs dillashaw was the clear FOTN.
mizugaki/rivera was the only other fotn worthy fight, but it was clearly tj/barao.
Mizugaki vs. Rivera was a very strong runner-up for FOTN but by no means is it better then the title fight was. Title fights if they go into the late rounds will always beat out nontitle fights that only go 3 rounds for FOTN if everything else is equal.
Darao v Billashaw
That performance TJ had was masterful
That was some A++ shit...
Barao vs Dillashaw was a one sided beatdown, and Barao was never in the fight and connected with no good shots or did anything expcept be a punching bag.. thats not fight of the night, fight of the nights are only back and forth close fights that are exciting.
RJ Darao vs. Tenan Billashaw
This. TJ definitely deserved a performance bonus, but Barao did nothing to earn one other than holding on until the 5th.
Dana always said that fight of the nights are always close fights. when has a total beatdown ever been fight of the night until this? I can't remember one. seriously.
FOTN should be competetive - not a 1-sided beatdown.
So, what was FOTN then guys?
OK with it, think its a way to give TJ and Barao some extra money.
TJ probably only made 20/20 for that fight vs Barao so its a way to throw him some extra money so its a decent payday for him.
Will likely need to win a few more fights before getting a new big champ deal so I'm ok with him getting two bonuses.
the fight that had me on the edge of my seat, sweating bullets,praying and dying to take a piss but unwilling to leave my chair for fear of missing a WTF moment was
surprise surprise the TJ/Barao fight.
so i have no problem it got FOTN.
Mizugaki vs. Rivera was not a better fight than the main event.
It's not called "closest fight of the night"
