The last 2 rounds seem a lot closer since I've muted Rogan.

Still almost definitely TJ's but listening to Rogan you'd think he's up 30-21

This is awesome!
I have been a big fan of TJ, and this is amazing to watch so far! Hope he can finish it!

Seems like TJ Dillashaw is channeling Dominick Cruz tonight.
Funky movements and shuffling feet like we've not seen sin Cruz last fought.

...Dillashaw obviously has more power than Cruz though...

Last 3 fights tonight ended in the final round. Not sure that's ever happened before.

Amazing performance by TJ Dillashaw. Looked like vintage Cruz with way more pop in his punches and perhaps a step quicker.

brilliant performance by Dillashaw, and I too thought he looked like he was channeling his inner Cruz, but like others said, much more pop. A Cruz 2.0 if you will.

I wonder who Dana has number 1 pound for pound now. Weidman probably with his title fight up next. My number 1 goes to Aldo, 2 Velasquez, 3 Jones.

Count me among those who saw the Dominick Cruz in Dillashaw tonight. That was some seriously impressive stuff by Cormier and Dillashaw. You get the sense that Cormier could probably do this all day. And by that I mean he could keep mowing down guys until Jones and Gustafsson finish their dance.

I guess you could put him against Rumble and I definitely wouldn't complain if they fought, but I think Cormier has earned his shot. The only problem for Cormier is if Gustafsson wins this time around. There's no way in hell that Cormier will get a shot before Jones gets a rematch. So, I guess that Rumble vs. Cormier against the winner of Jones vs. Gustafsson makes the most sense. Unless Dana decides that manhandling Hendo like he did has earned Cormier a shot ahead of Gustafsson. It wouldn't be the first time he's backtracked with no fight/date set.

Turning back to DC v Hendo for a sec. We've seen Hendo get outwrestled before, but usually it is a grind out, drag em down type takedown. As a longtime MMA fan, I never thought I'd see the day where Dan Henderson got launched on single leg. He and Yoel Romero have some serious explosion. in their takedowns.

I'm hoping DC can slam Jones the way he slammed Hendo...
