All I can say is... Finishes! 11 fights with only 2 decisions (one of which got FOTN) and plenty of clean KO's. That was definitely a successful UFC event

Roy Nelson - Chieck Kongo
Matt Mitrione - Shane Del Rosario
Colton Smith - Robert Whittaker or Sergio Moraes
Mike Ricci - He said that he's moving down to LW I'm pretty sure so Al Iaqunta
Pat Barry - De Fries/Duffee winner or Jordan/Russow winner
Shane Del Rosario - Matt Mitrione or Jordan/Russow loser
Dustin Poirier - Chad Mendes or Manny Gamburyan
Jonathon Brookins - Daniel Pineda or Cole Miller
Mike Pyle - Kyle Noke or Mike Pierce
James Head - Rick Story or Claude Patrick
Johnny Bedford - TJ Dillashaw or Hugo Viana
Marcos Vinicius - Issei Tamura
Rustam Khabilov - Abel Trujillo
Vinc Pichel - Mitch Clarke
TJ Waldburger - Sean Pierson
Nick Catone - Papy Abedi or Kenny Robertson
Hugo Viana - Johnny Bedford or Chico Camus
Reuben Duran - Ken Stone
Mike Rio - James Vick
John Cofer - Cut or Mitch Clarke
Tim Elliot - John Lineker or Louis Gaudinot
Jared Papazian - Cut

Those are my thoughts, what did you guys think about the fights tonight? Oh and WAR PAT BARRY!!

Not too thrilled about both TUF Finalists dropping down, would like contestants that actually fight at the weight.

The ones that I agree with I will skip.
Some other options:
Nelson: Carwin or welcomes Cormier
Poirer: Koch
Brookins: Hettes
Pyle: Pierce
Bedford: Gagnon/Easton
Waldburger: Noke/Dan Miller
Catone: Simpson

Mir was saying he's still fighting Cormier, probably make the fight after the SF event.

I know what you mean but the show is 6 weeks long, fighters will fight on the show at the weight class above so they don't have to cut weight 3 or 4 times, they'd rather just watch what they eat rather than dehydrate themselves.

Love the idea of HD vs Duffee (if he wins)

i was impressed with several fighters. big country, colton smith, mike pyle, Rustam Khabilov, johnny bedford, and hugo viana. these guys all looked really good with impressive wins. we all knew what roy was wanting to do but its still fun to watch. definitely some serious threats coming from these guys.

another thought: big country needs to fight pat barry, they both got serious KO power and both coming off an impressive win.

I wouldn't mind a Pyle vs Fitch rematch.
It might a little make sense in light of Pyle's three fight win-streak and his calls for a top-ten-ranked opponent.
