didnt know where to post this so i just chose here.

some good matches, vinny vs keenan was probably the one i was most looking forward too and it delivered.

Biggest surprise for me was watching barnett man handle Dean lister for the entire 20 minutes and getting the sub via neck crank with 10 seconds to go.

Yeah I jumped back & forth between metamoris & WSOF. Other then the main event WSOF was extremely disappointing. Metamoris had some great moments but it wasn't much better.. Sooo many draws. Sonnen got manhandled & Barnett looked elite. The secret match was cool too!

Fuckin $30 is too much. Also they need interesting matchups to pull me in. Mma bjj elite vs bjj elite type matches.

30$ is a bit much, I agree. I don't think the matchups really needed to change, aside from that Chael nonsense, but perhaps points would be better...or some hybrid. Maybe make them go for 30 min or more so that someone would gas out and a sub could occur. Draws are unacceptable if you want to increase viewership in the future. To boot, fights like Keenan vs Vinny were clearly not a draw, someone obviously was winning but there is no way to win without a sub.

Also, that ref was garbage. You can't arbitrarily tell fighters to keep going past the time limit because you want them to continue. You either stop it or you continue to overtime every time, otherwise you have zero credibility.

Even though it was a draw I thought Keenan vs vinny was the best match up and I was looking forward to that match up the most.

It is slowly growing and they will definitely benefit from having higher profile guys like sonnen and Barnett competing.
