Petr loses his belt. Anders literally tweets about him throwing the illegal knee and then does it the very next week. Cant make this **** up. Edwards complains about being inactive for nearly 2 years all to come back and gauge eyes literally seconds after he was warned about his fingers lol and next week he will be crying about how no one wants to fight him.

Josh "CTETard" Thomson was on his podcast this morning saying that Edwards should get a title shot coming off of this eye poke NC because "the writing was on the wall" and Edwards was clearly winning. Anyone else find that irritatingly ******** or is it just me? If that's the case the writing was clearly on the wall for Yan.
