My biggest winner would be Jim Miller. After a tough defeat, he comes back bravely and again facing a chance of getting a title shot.

My biggest loser was no other than Guillard: Men, he is already winning that fight. He just need to land more strikes and it will be over. Just bad luck!

Biggest winner for me would also be Jim Miller, he beat a very tough Guillard in impressive fashion and the win puts him right back in the title picture.

Biggest loser for me would be Ludwig, it was a big fight for him, a co main event, a chance to make it 3 ufc wins in a row, and a win over Neer likely would give him another main card fight and potential top 10 opponent. But with the loss he likely goes back to the undrcards.

Winner: Pat HD Barry - With walking papers already stamped Barry was in dire need of a win last weekend. TWO full mounts & a nasty arm bar attempt had everyone waving goodbye to the shortest Heavyweight on the roster. Even Morecraft thought he had this match in the bag but one lunging shot with laser precision & BOOM!

Loser: Melvin Guillard - 2011 looked to be Melvins year. Then in walks J-Lau. Thats okay! A mere hiccup on his way to the belt? A win over Jim Miller would put him right back in the deep end of pool! But..... Irrelevant once again

Honorable Mention: Habib Nurmagomedov

Ehhh, I would call that bad gameplanning, not bad luck. He threw like 5 flying knees against a guy who needed to get the fight to the ground to win. That's nothing to do with luck.

I was smashed out my mind but yeah I agree I thought I was playing an Xbox and only throwing power moves

As for winner: Nick Denis, Blitzed that guy, I'll remember those elbows for months!

Loser: Kamal Shalorus, out wrested, out grappled, close on the feet, out toughed, out submitted, outclassed.

Biggest winner is miller definitely after he looked on his way to a second straight loss and miraculously took melvins back.

Biggest loser is definitely is Guillard after having miller hurt bad he couldn't finish and still can't defend basic chokes to save his life!

Exactly what I thoguht I would pack my stuff immediately if I am Melvin and go back to Greg Jackson some of the worst ideas for a gameplan ever...Flying knees....Being flashy is not getting him wins...

This makes me worried for Evans...The last Blackzilian to fight....Doesnt bode well...Im not sold on this camp and I am leaning Phil Davis against rashad and I have always been a big Rashad fan...But based purely on what I have see so far...I wonder what this camp is really doing....Telling jokes or concentrating on opponents...I think jokes are top priority...

big winner = Pat Barry. Miller submitting a guy whos been submitted many times already isnt all that unexpected. Barry had his UFC career on the line and showed a vast improvement in his sub defense and defensive grappling.

big loser = Guillard. reasons already mentioned. imo it wasnt total bad gameplanning, i think he was trying to time Miller shooting in but was either reading his movements wrong or wanted to be flashy

Winner - Pat Barry - He's now free to lose again without getting insta-cut!

Loser - Guillard - He'd need like 4 wins in a row at this point to get a title shot which is no small feat in the UFC LW shark tank. Wasn't long ago peeps were talking about Guillard getting near a title. He's lightyears away now.
