    It sounded in the presser like he didn't watch the fights. The prelims were actually excellent:

    1) Lingo vs. Kilburn was intense and competitive, crazy first round, and great fight overall.

    2) Emeev vs. Zawada - Again, another very competitive, very exciting back and forth fight. Both looked really good.

    3) Felipe vs. Tafa - So much fun. The end of the second was awesome, and overall the fight was even and toughly fought.

    The gals didn't deliver, but 3/5 were excellent.

    5/5 decisions = who gives a fuck

    If you really want to stand out, finish a fight. Decision fights that get remembered are a rarity and for good reason.

    I actually thought the chick fight was decent. Lots of interesting scrambles and grappling exchanges. I thought the Panamanian chick looked pretty good.

    I agree. I see it's not the kind of fight you want to impress a new audience, but it was a fair fight. The 3 I mentioned, though, were fireworks.

    Yea thought was weird too. The Moras/Melo was the only one that was bad.

    I guess he wanted to impress casuals because of ABC
