all the TUF China fighters seem to be less skilled and a little behind the rest of the mma world so some easy picks for me but O'Reily is fighting one of the better Tuf'ers in Lipeng that will be a slight upset when Lipeng wins with a vicious decision

They're using the bigger cage in Macao, and the 25-footer in Tulsa. So more decisions are likely here.

It has to be a weird thing to do in China (Macau)...going to see the mixed martial arts fights in the cage...

I can't decide if I want to stay up and watch it live, or go to bed right now and get up in four hours and watch it live, or just watch it later. Decisions decisions. I definitely want to not be tired for the other card later though. These Fight Pass cards teach me how European fans must feel for the average UFC event in the Americas.

It's 13:30 over here ... which is great, except for this is a double-header and my noon nap is usually what keeps me alive for the night cards :)

Kenny: "on the feet Dudieva more of a counter striker ..."
Goldie: "She really like to counter-punch"

Good job paying attention to what your partner's saying ... I can imagine Goldie with his head buried in his notes looking for something clever to say just while Kenny's saying it :)

The difference between knowing and writing down ...

Close round. I think Florian is on point tonight. And this further confirmed my suspicion that Florian/Anik is an awful mix.

Maybe Anik is just bad?

No patience on the ground ... you've got side control, secure it, soften up, then pass ... where was she hurrying to?

Meh, both lack the technique to make a grappling fight interesting ... Phillips' ok wrestling beat Dudieva's ok Sambo and Judo ... unless the judges score those TDs with nothing behind them ...

Anik isn't great, but I don't mind him with Brian Stann. I don't like Florian when he's with Anik, either. I think they have an awful rapport. 

As for that decision, not the best, but I don't think it was all that controversial. Low-level fight.
