    I'm with Hoss on the whole Faber sub thing.

    I was surprised as well. Grice clearly won the 1st round, and to me, he won the 2nd round as well. Round 3 was quite interesting because Grice did have some offense but he was close to being finished multiple times, and I was unsure if that was a 10-8 or not. For a round to be 10-8, does it have to be dominant to a point it's finished or one-sided? Certain one-sided rounds like round 2 of Rampage/Griffin wasn't close to being finished but should that deserve a 10-8 over round 3 of Grice/Bermudez? I don't think so, but that's another debate in itself.

    Faber's set up was extremely beautiful to watch, and I also considered it a better submission, but as Repenter mentioned Robertson's was probably a given for how creative it was. It was so creative that the submission itself was anticlimactic because no one thought it would elicit a tap and most had to watch the replay to see what the hell happened.

    Grice deserves more than his win bonus and fotn for incurring multiple concussions in one fight.

    I am surprised I haven't read in any article or forum comment anyone also mentioning how good the first prelim fight of the night was.

    Yuri Villefort vs Nah-Shon Burrell, great fight. Even though Nah-Shon came in over 5lbs overweight and has a ridiculous spelling on his first name, I thought it was also a contender for FOTN.

    Initial memo to Liz, you have 3 months to learn arm bar defense....Do what you will with your time.

    I say she should have won sub of the night. I think that was the most entertaining fight of the night, hell, give those ladies fotn too.
    Because Robertson's sub was more impressive.
    I disagree also that the main event was the best fight of the night. It was not! It had a little special taste because Carmouche had Rousey in some trouble for about 20 seconds, but the rest of the fight it was all Rousey.

    Even Court McGee vs Josh Neer was more entertaining.

    Because Pashak is well known for hating on women.
    And you are known for being the result of an abortion and coming here just to write useless stupid crap.

    robertson's submission was better IMO it was very rarely used and extremely impressive. Definetly, at least to me, the best submision of the night.
