Had some friends over, sorry i couldnt be in the chat. Some scattered thoughts
  • Davey Grant with an iffy performance despite the crazy, awesome ko
  • Still think Melo is the worst UFC fighter, likely to be cut
  • Tybura maintains his reputation in my mind with that performance
  • Santos-Bogatov leading for the worst fight of the year
  • Amirkhani with the awesome decision
  • Thought Zaleski won the fight but it was still pretty fun
  • So glad Jiri got brought to the UFC, lived up to what i thought and more, fun addition
  • Ribas doing Ribas things, hype train continues. Choo Choo
  • How the **** did Namajunas' face get so ****** up in one round, holy ****
  • Still proud to be an Aldo fan, fun fight and excited for Yan-Sterling
  • Alexander winning by the slimmest of margins, thought he won but def understand Holloway fans frustrations
  • Usman doing what he needed, didnt expect anything different

Great event but cant beat 249 imo

Heartbreaking card for me, I’ll break down how I felt about the main card.
I am so happy with Ribas. Was rooting for Paige but I love Amanda. Knew she’d pull it off. One of my new favorites.
Rose got the W! I know I said this card was heartbreaking but Rose winning made the night a lot better. Looked very good but props to Jessica as she looked very technical and composed and well compared to her previous fights and I even thought she got the win but very glad Rose won. 
Yan becoming champion felt bittersweet man. This is where the heartbreak kicks in. Very late stoppage and I hated seeing Aldo get smashed as I think he is an OG. Still very fun fight but I really wanted Aldo and it was looking good until the mauling that was round five. 
Thought Holloway got robbed man. Still fun but am very disappointed. I love Max and he’s a favorite of mine and he looked very sharp. He won that man! 😭
And obviously the main event sucked as I wanted Masvidal bad but Kamaru did what he had to do to win and I applaud him. Usman is a very good fighter and he ain’t losing that title anytime soon. 
Overall great card! Thank you fellow Tapology Members for everything! (Even you Fishrat, smh)
Night!

@Sognonero
Usman mauled Jorge for five rounds 
Alex won a very controversial decision
Rose kicked some ass and won a split decision
Yan finished Aldo in round 5 after a beating 
And Ribas predictably submitted Paige early

This card shows the 3 Major  problem i have with  judging because in 3 fight the wrong person should of got the decsion because the judge give volknoski the best scorecards posible to win the split even though Holloway should of one dropping him in the 1st and secound and winning a close 3rd . Andrade won the fight  with Pride scoreing (the way MMA should be scored) because winning 2 close round and get dominate in the 3rd and her face was destoy. Zaleski lost because a guy name Muslim ain't lossing a decsion in Abu Dabi being a hometown decsion

Edit. Didn't see the zaleki fight yes but lisning to what people say because i was at the GYm

@njrp77 don’t be salty. Usman also took Jorge down and smashed face in and did whatever he wanted to him.

Not salty I just don’t think that was a mauling. Usman controlled him GSP style, he didn’t maul him like Khabib.

Rose looked great in 1 and 2, no idea how her face got so busted in the 3rd

She got punched in the face Jake. I would have thought that was obvious. Andrade would have finished her with one more round.
