Browne looked really impressive with his destruction of Barnett.

The ladies always deliver in exciting fashion. Rousey and Tate put on one hell of a fight and props to Ronda for finishing with her signature arm-bar again.

Chris Leben and Josh Barnett got their asses handed to them on the same event I couldn't be happier

The bar I was at was going crazy for the Rousey/Tate fight. Definitely fotn imo. I think they should have shown Jim Miller some love for sotn though. Subbing a black belt with an armbar in the 1st round is pretty impressive.

Miller definitely should have the SOTN bonus, that was a thing of beauty.
Very disappointed in Silva vs Weidman, to that point it didn't look like Silva had much going on but that kind of a loss just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
Also, I might quit the pg, my picks are getting so bad I think flipping a coin would work better.

I can't argue with the Browne bonus. However, it would have been interesting to have a defensive move win this bonus...

Don't get too discouraged. I had an off night, myself. MMA is just incredibly random (more than most sports I can think of). It all even out in the long run, though.

Rousey vs Tate was awesome makes up for main event.
Talked to a lot of Brazilians. A lot were pissed that they flew from Brazil to see Silva break his leg

I think FOTN and KOTN were obvious choices, but I definitely thought Miller had a more impressive armbar than Rousey.

Let's not forget about the equally prestigious Fart Of The Night winner: Goldie.

Contrary to what a lot of people seem to believe, I don't think it was Goldie.

The microphones on those headsets only detect the sound that's right in front of them; it's unlikely a fart from either Goldie or Rogan would've been heard on those microphones.

I'd say it was most likely Bahadurzada or Howard.

I disagree, I think Porier deserved KOTN. Elbowing a dude in the ear during a stalled double leg isn't as impressive as Porier's win over fat Diego.

That said Brown's KO was still pretty fucking cool and unexpected.

I wonder what Cain and his team think when they see Browne KO somebody deep on a double like that.

I think Cain will just smother him against the fence like he has done to so many other opponents.
