Did anyone notice after Mac got into Neer's guard Josh threw a punch that went over macs head and hit himself in the face? hahaha.

Wow what a fight, Neer owned him for 2 rounds, 10-8 1st rd imo and proved a lot of people wrong.

The one loss I'm okay with tonight.....

I lost my parlay but I am so glad Neer won. How weak was that TUF class Danzig was in because he hasn't done a damn thing since he won except be a stepping stone

10-8 really? He won the round but 10-8 is pretty far'fetched

This is the worst possible matchup for a one-dimensional kickboxer like Stojnic, and it will show early, as Velasquez plants him on the canvas and goes to work. Think of it like the “Planet Earth” episode in which the Nile crocodile eats the gazelle, only more one-sided.

It's a great oppertunity for Cain to work on his stand-up. So far I'd say he's doing just that. his combos are nice, he's following everything up nicely with those leg kicks.

It's a shame it got past the 1st though.

flawless rd 1 for cain

Wow, I knew it wasn't going to last long but that wasn't the most convincing stoppage I've ever seen.

Questionable stoppage in round 2, overdue but I thought it may have been for Cain hitting the back of the head. But still, talk about Raising Cain-very impressive performance by Velasquez.

yaaaay 11 points

lol why couldn't he have tried that ridiculous spinning backfist in round 1.

It didnt seem like an explosive ending it just looked like the ref said enough is enough if stojnnic wasnt going to do anything about it then the ref has to

Josh Neer is the man... won my av bet...

Since when can't a fighter put his f'in feet on the cage? Is that a dumb Florida rule or just a dumb Florida ref.

Overeem dwarfed Cain when the greeted each other.

The Grice-Veach prelim is next. Watch the stoppage when it comes for Grice's reaction.

I was wondering that myself. I think it was just a dumb referee. That is the only problem I have with the UFC going to so many states is that you get referees that are not experienced sometimes. They should pay Herb or Big John or someone a little extra to get sanctioned in whatever states they are going to. I know sometimes we have issues with Herb and Steve Mazzagati but overall they are very good referees compared with some of the stuff you get with inexperience.

Which bout was the hot bout?

Damn Cain is a beast. Was looking like two 10-8 rounds. Again, I pick round one, ends in round 2.

The problem w/ the feet you don't see that often, but it's the same as the hands... you can push but not grab. He had his toes wrapped around. Totally legit call that often doesn't get called when it should.

Ppl dislike the refs in every sport but I don't think there's been much/anything to complain about tonight.

On Grice-Veach...yes, that to me was a potential premature stoppage. Great fight...yes, premature stoppage.

Hmm, he did seem to be very dazed, but Veach didnt land any effective shots, looked like he was laying some GnP on Grices shoulder lol.

Veach/Grice FOTN. I don't care that it ended in R1.
