    More than likely, it's a HW fight with 2 out of shape fat guys.......1 round KO, or 3 round snoozer. Basically what almost every HW bout looks like.

    Had no idea the site was back up.

    Great event. Cejudo made HUGE improvements from round 1 to 2 and took over. KOTY was straight there for Shevchenko. Don't like how the Ferguson/Cerrone fight ended. Illegal shot ended the fight basically, Cerrone shouldn't have blew his nose but it was result of that illegal shot. Not that Ferguson is to blame, the referee should have been there. Hopefully they just do a rematch.

    Agreed, Cejudo looked fantastic in round 2......he's legit become one of the best fighters in the sport today. Shevchenko's KO was beautiful and brutal all in one, loved how she went to the body consistently, then BOOM, headkick and game over. Sucky ending for Cowboy, but I disagree that it was the last shot that caused it, Cerrone was already very swollen at that point, it was purely the blowing of the nose that caused the end. It was illegal, but the ref needs to be in position when the bell sounds, so I guess it's just a shitty end. If they do the rematch, great, if they don't, fine.

    That punch after the horn was sooooooooooo longgggggggggggg after the bell....dbag move on Fergusons part...you could see his frustration after the first rd, and was emotional throughout...Shevchenko is a killer...Cejudo...can't stand him really, he has however turned into one of the greats
    Just because I can NEVER remember how to score my points!
    6 points for winning fighter, then another 2 if you guess the method, then another 2 if you guess the round

    Great night of fights for sure...Cejudo is real deal for sure after the first round I thought Moraes might be too much for him with his distance and lightning fast leg kicks...Cejudo almost seemed lost in what to do but after round 1 he made adjustments and used his hands to get in range and then Moraes seemed lost and got dominated once Cejudo closed the disance and dominated all the way to the finish.

    Shevchenko proved again that the only one in her league at FW is her, not sure what her next move might be ...

    Cerrone Ferg was a great fight while it lasted, too bad for the ending but it did look like TF was taking over and starting to batter Cerrone. At first I thought TF looked slow and plodding but thats just his awkward style and his pressure never stops wearing down his opponents. I hope he get's next title shot, after 12 straight wins I think he deserves it....even if Conor want a rematch vs Kabib.

    Calvin Kattar was another notable fight blasting Lamas out in the first round putting himself in good position inside top 10 at FW,

    Don't really check my DMs on twitter, went through a period where a lot of it was spam, barely use twitter much these days.

    I don't think it was the illegal shot either, but that's what will be remembered as the ending of the fight.
