    How true was it that the fight was pulled due to chapped lips???? There certainly had to more to It than that....certainly

    Nope, it was cancelled due to chapped lips! They were apparently equating chapped lips to cutting too much weight!

    OK, thoughts on the fights...…

    The Torres win in the opener was unusual to say the least, Brooks trying a slam and KO's himself!!!

    Nathaniel Wood looked good beating a tough vet in Eduardo for his debut UFC win, doing it with a brabo choke too, Wood is known for brawling(much like his head coach, Brad Pickett), so it's good to see he's adding more to his game. Great prospect.

    Desmond Green fought a smart fight and outworked and outfought Tibau throughout, good win for him.

    Belal Muhammed beat some dude I haven't heard of, still, job done, easily too.

    David Teymur with another big win, surely a top 10 guy next for him now. I thought Lentz would wrestle him easily, but not to be.

    Sijara Eubanks won a close fight with Lauren Murphy, easily won round one, 2 and 3 were closer, and the 3rd was pretty awful with both really tired and punches looking very weak. She called for the title shot, but no way she did enough to show she should be before Shevchenko.

    Sam Alvey won a Sam Alvey fight...….boring ass shit, with the odd heavy overhand coming in, landing sometimes and mostly not. Disappointed Villante couldn't just outwork him at the very least, because had he done so, he'd have won easily.

    Julio Arce looked very impressive beating the other Teymur brother, one to watch as he gets in with better opposition.

    Please retire Jake, you are finished. Sad to see Jake lose badly again, but Saunders did his job and won well.

    Walt Harris seems to have something, but not a lot! He has potential to be a good HW, but makes too many mistakes and still seems to be making them too. That said, he finishes guys when he lands.

    Gregor Gillespie is another who should be looking for a top 10 guy, very impressive win again for him.

    As for Marlon Moraes, title shot next for him, he has to face the winner of the TJ/Cody fight. Another highlight reel KO, he's looked great in his last 2 fights and looks like justifying some of the hype from his WSOF days. Jimmie Rivera can come back from this too, made a silly early mistake but still has the ability to become a contender IMO.

    Terrible. I saw a tweet saying "Can we go back to MMA being illegal in NY?" Found that kinda funny

    Yeah, they seem to have some rules that just make zero sense at all.

    It's the case of "careful what you wish for..."
