I am shocked that they didn't brown nose Ronda further by giving her SOTN. Lawler got his by default too.

Lawler should not have won KOTN as that was a terrible stoppage

It was premature but not terrible Koscheck was going to get hurt bad over the next 10 seconds, I think we all wanted to see Koscheck get beat down bad so it was disappointing to say the least.

Didn't the UFC use to pay $75K for bonuses on PPVs. I know they pay less for Fuel, FX an Fox fights.

Hats off to bermudez and grice. The villefort fight was outstAnding as well, unfortunate that those other guys stole the show.

I thought it was fair. This was right before Herb stopped it and Koscheck looks out of it.

That's only if Dana doesn't lose the night before at the casino

I see his one hand up ready to try to block the punch. Kos got up immediately after which indicates he was no where near done. How many times before has Herb allowed a fighter to defend more than 2 seconds before calling the fight?

I think Herb should of let it go a few more shots but Robbie was going to get the tko regardless. Honestly Kos looked done to me but at the same time he wasnt out I just think he was rattled and not really responding.

I agree Bubs. Herb should have let Robbie pound on him some more
