One of the best cards I have ever gotten wrong.

Quick notes from yesterday : 

  • I think we can all say Veronica Hardy is officially a different fighter after taking those 2 years off. 
  • If you are holding a triangle let go because the slam is now a regular move. 
  • Miesha Tate has shown to be at a level that still has a place in the UFC perhaps done fighting elite fighters however there are fun matches that she could be a part of still at this point in her career. 
  • Sean Strickland has to apologise to Dustin Stoltzfus as he is no longer the worst fighter on the roster 
  • Sean Brady is still as good as we thought however his overall skillset is still up for debate. 
  • Deiveson Figueiredo looks to have a future in the bantamweight division saw some comments about Yan vs Fig and that would be amazing. 
  • Jalin Turner took a risk that paid off and once again could be set up for another big fight in the lightweight division. 
  • The Bobby Green resurgence that started after the AI fight might be over for good. 
  • Arman Tsarukyan is officially the new hot lightweight on the block and a fight with any of the regulars in the division either Justin or Dustin would be a perfect fit next.

Even tho Sean Brady is one dimensional, being a strong grappler is a problem for the majority of the division who don’t have the skills to stop his game, I still think he get expose by most the top 10 as majority of them has the skills to beat him, I think the next fight is either JDM or Garry, let see if the prospect have takedown defence as welterweight 

Really want to see Figgy fight an top 5 fighter to give more context on bantamweight Figgy, I personally think it was Font looking bad more then Figgy looking great, even tho they’re wasn’t much to Critizize about Figgy

Also with Beneil, anyone who can punch and can make it a fight will give Benny problem, people forget about the problem because he avoid it well, Back in the day people were calling Benny chinny as well, he alway been that way

Also, Puna sucks, i has low standard and he still disappointed me
