Sayles probably deserved a draw, Kang/Ramos & Cejudo/DJ both could've went either way, and Pedro Munhoz and Brett Johns were absolutely robbed of FOTN. Much more action than the co-main. 

Alex Perez was the single most impressive fighter of the evening and I'm looking forward to both his and Shorty's next matchups.
