Yeah I agree sparky, that darth choke was beautiful !

He beat mitrione on the feet then put him to sleep. He really is a dark horse when it comes to the hw division. Just one thing I would like to see him improve on would be his striking defence.... Funny how he gets knocked out a couple of times and people just completely discredit his stand up and general game. I think his stand up is awesome for a hw... Great technique and speed.

I would have liked to see two SOTN bonuses tbh. While Schaub's may have looked better, he didn't put a ground expert to sleep. He put a big striker who has literally no game off his back to sleep. Still very impressive but I was more impressed with Mitch personally.

Talk about Schaub getting robbed of 50 grand. I guess its understandable though.

they're?!?!?!?!

I didn't see a great replay of it, but did Wineland straight up take a spinning back kick to the face?

FOTN was well deserved, I was super impressed with the tdd of Gus. That 4th rd did him in but that was a very close fight

Yeah fucking weird too. Barao threw a spinning back kick at Winelands chest height and Wineland ducked straight into it, about 1 minute after I said Baraos gonna play this fight safe
