But the show must go on. 

Prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 7pm ET before switching to FS1 at 8pm.

That was ******* terrible, Thompson probably won but he barely did **** either, Tyron had the more significant moments but I don't care who wins, **** this. GSP should be fighting the winner

If that last round is 10-8, Woodley wins on my cards. If not, it's a draw.

I've got 3-2 Wonderboy, but 5th round 10-8 for Woodley means a draw.

Terrible fight, but don't see how Woodley possibly won three rounds by moving back against the fence, not landing any more than Wonderboy did.

I legit thought that Buffer was about to read another draw, though, lmao.

probably an unpopular opinion, but I'm glad this sport is finally moving to this kind of judging.  
my score:
10-10
10-9 Thompson
10-9 Woodley
10-9 Thompson
10-8 Woodley

I also thought Thompson 3 rounds to 2 possible 10-8 in the 5th making it a draw,but...i'm pretty ******* drunk.

Oh wait,Vegas isn't on board with the new 10-8 etc, rules right?I thought Thompson clearly won 3,

The thing that sucks is that before the main event, this was a great card.
