I'd have given SOTN to Maia. Squeezing someone's jaw/head so hard that blood spills out the nose is just sick!

I think SOTN should of went to Phil Davis for that anaconda choke and FOTN should of went to Marcello and Mdadi

Call me crazy, but I found the Silva Fitch fight to be very entertaining, back and forth, and a fantastic scrap. I'm very okay with them getting FOTN. Glad to see Maia back to his jitsu roots.

Yeah, that sub was sick. Agreed completely.

Love that Fitch got FOTN, awesome fight. Silva was game but he just wasn't ready for a grizzled veteran the calibre of Fitch. Was that his first fotn? If memory serves the GSP fight was fotn as well...

This.

Very few things surprise me in MMA anymore.

Seeing one man juice another man's head like it was a grape....that can still get to me.

I'm sorry but Phil Davis had the SLICKEST & SICKEST submission win out of anyone tonight!!!



Maia's was good, and Sergio's neck crank was cool but wasn't a surprise to me at all that "The Legendary" Big Nog was able to submit a guy that had about as much of bjj respect/knowledge as a Ken Shamrock fighting Royce Gracie

The last time I saw a Gator-Roll was when Randy Couture beat Mike VanArsdale at UFC 54...
I suppose SOMEBODY could've won a match with that move since 54 but I'm just saying...
