That was a really good fight between Fuentes and Hamilton. Really good.

Cooper Gibson just smashed Palacios in 1rd, with 1 ARM! He rag dolled, slammed and subbed him when he started the fight with a massively swollen elbow! Didn't matter tho

Congratulations to the 1 guy who picked him to win on here! I bet it was FantasyBOT!

Was a great event overall, loads of finishes, couple upsets and a gruesome injury!  Good night for me tho I got every other fight correct 2 underdogs and a few perfects! I feel confident that my scores gonna be near the top of the charts!
