weird that Nog didnt get a suspension... For general purposes at least... His face was pretty beat up.

i was thinking the exact same thing. he took a sever beating and he should have been suspended longer than sylvia was. nog looked preety banged up and to have no suspension at all is odd, it is probably that juanez missed it because otherwise it makes no sense to me. i mean for christ's sake his eye was nearly closed shut.

Heath got the worst beatdown of 81 but it was fun to watch

Actually, Nog did get suspended. Sylvia did not, according to the official NSAC document:
Nog is suspended until 3/2, no contact until 2/24.

i was wondering what in the world sylvia got suspended for. it doesnt take long to recover from getting choked out and he didnt take much punishment in the fight.

hmmm.... based on that document the man who fought Silvya was Little Nog (Rogeiro) , Minotaouro's second name is Rodrigo

The Bros' are cheating!!!

Brock could fight as early as they want him to, more or less, either make him prove hmself or burn off the contract w/ a fight at 84 or 85 maybe
