fitting that Tafa got FOTN, since he got screwed for FOTN honors in his last fight against Carlos Felipe. A one-sided beatdown does not deserve to be awarded FOTN, performance of the night for the victor, absolutely, but not FOTN.

Rothwell's submission was a Go-go Plata. Definitely not a guillotine.
