     This fight was ok. Cody Donovan showed some decent striking in the first round, so I gave him that round. The second round basically consisted of Donovan throwing a head kick, and RIGHT BEFORE it connected, Villante connected with a big right hook, knocking Donovan on his ass, and then he followed up with some ground & pound, forcing the referee to stop the fight. Good win for Villante, but it's hard to get stoked up Facebook prelims.

      This was a really solid UFC debut for Sergio Pettis, and this was my first time seeing Will Campuzano fight. It was his 3rd fight in the UFC, but I haven't seen his first two fights yet. With that being said, both guys really went after this one, but I thought Sergio Pettis's striking was better, his Jiu-Jitsu was solid, they both showed decent wrestling skills, but again, I'd give that to Pettis as well. In the end, I gave all 3 rounds (except MAYBE the second round?) to Pettis, and all 3 judges agreed. So yeah, good fight.

      This fight was a shockingly good fight. Jason High is an incredible grappler, both wrestling & Jiu-Jitsu skills well above average. Lapsley was making his UFC debut, and put up a hell of a fight as well, also showing solid grappling and decent striking. In the end, I gave all 3 rounds to Jason High, he did an amazing job in this fight, and all 3 judges agreed. Really really good fight.

      This was a pretty good fight, even though it was entirely one sided. Erik Perez was more aggressive, he's a better striker, he's a better grappler, and he basically kicked Figueroa's ass the entire 15 minute round. Well, except in the first minute, where he kicked him square in the balls. Still, it was pretty clear that Perez won this fight, so...

      Rick Story looked like a beast in this fight. He was throwing bombs for pretty much the entire 15 minute fight, and by the end of the fight, Brian Ebersole looked like he was about to collapse, and Story was still going pretty strong. So yeah, good decision victory for Rick Story.

      This was a pretty lopsided victory as well. Thales Leites showed that his grappling skills are FAR superior, compared to Ed Herman. Ed Herman literally spent NO TIME in this fight, in the dominant position on the ground, and since the majority of the fight took place on the ground, with Leites making Herman look like he had never even heard of Jiu-Jitsu before, it's pretty clear that Leites won this fight.

      Donald Cerrone is a badass! He beat the living shit out of Evan Dunham in the first round, with huge punches, and kicks, nearly knocking out Dunham early in the round, and he continued to punish him for the entire round. The second round was more of a grappling match, almost entirely controlled by Cerrone, where he eventually got the mount, Dunham escaped and got on top, and Cerrone locked on the immediate triangle choke for the deep submission victory. Awesome win for Donald Cerrone!

      This was a pretty good fight, that apparently was intended to move one of these guys closer to a 125 pound title shot. With that being said, I wanted Bagautinov to win, and he clearly won the first round, I gave the second round to Elliott, and I sort of gave Elliott the third round, but I WANTED Bagautinov to win, so I was happy when the judges gave him the fight. Good fight by both guys though.

      BAM! That's what I'm talkin' about! Both guys came out swinging, throwing heavy punches, the fight went to the ground at one point, Woodley ended up on top, but they were brought back to their feet eventually. After some more gun slinging, Woodley countered a punch, knocking Koscheck to his knees, and he followed that with a couple more punches to the temple, knocking Koscheck unconscious near the end of the first round. Awesome win for Tyron Woodley. I think this makes 3 losses in a row for Koscheck though, so does he still have a job? I have no idea.

      This was a pretty badass fight. Robbie Lawler kicked MacDonald's ass in the first round, with brutal punches & leg kicks. The second round was all MacDonald, taking Lawler to the ground, controlling him, and pounding on him a bit. The third round was BASICALLY all Lawler, beating MacDonald's ass some more, until the very end, where MacDonald was able to get one last takedown, followed by some more ground & pound. In the end, I gave the fight to Robbie Lawler, but it was close, so I think a split-decision was a good outcome. I'm really glad Lawler won though!

      Well, that was disappointing. More often than not, I find myself rooting for Chael Sonnen against most guys, and this fight was a fight I REALLY wanted to see him kick some ass, but every time I want someone to beat up Rashad, it seems like Rashad just absolutely refuses to let it happen. So yeah, they clinched against the cage for most of the fight, eventually Rashad was able to take the fight to the ground, getting on Chael's back, and beating him up for a while, and eventually started landing some big bombs, forcing the referee to stop the fight. I couldn't tell if Chael tapped, or if it was just a referee stoppage, but either way, Rashad pretty much kicked his ass.

      Wow... That was the wildest bullshit decision I've ever seen. I'm not even going to try to break down this 25 minute fight into a play by play, it was FULL of action, and both guys looked pretty awesome. With that being said, Hendricks won the first round, he won the second round, St. Pierre won the third round, Hendricks won the fourth round, and GSP MAYBE won the fifth round, but it was close. So, in my book, and seemingly everyone else's book as well, that means Johny Hendricks is the new champion, eh? NOPE, SOMEHOW TWO FUCKING IDIOT ASS MOTHERFUCKING JUDGES, gave the fight to GSP. I quit, I'm out of here, this decision was fucking GARBAGE... And to make matters worse? GSP FUCKING RETIRED AFTER THE FIGHT!?! SAY WHAT!?! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT BULLSHIT!?! If that's not running from a rematch, I don't know what the fuck is... Johny Hendricks deserves that fucking belt... I'm going to mark both of these guys down for wins, because GSP technically won, but there is NO FUCKING WAY I'm going to break the Hendricks Winning Streak, with THIS bullshit.
