That card delivered biiiigtime.
Main card was amazing. Happy as fuck for Fitch. Unreal performance, fack the haters. Maldonado is not from this world. Hated the stoppage, figured if it was going to be stopped, stop it after the first. Glover looked like a beast, but I near went through the roof when he got tagged.
Seeing Nog get the sub made my night. Eat your words Herman. Worst game plan(if you can call it that) from a fighter I've seen in ages.
As for Silva... damn. Hard to describe it. My guts hurt after that knee. No punches were needed after. Made Bonnar look like a joke. And Bonnar is tough as hell. This was another level though.
Unreal night. Maldonado and E. Silva's faces are gonna be looking atrocious. Presser should be good.
Don't think that was a work, Bonnar looked tenative and scared as though he was expecting some type of crane-kick from Anderson. IMO, if it were a work, we'd have seen more grappling early on, that's where they can make things look more realistic and drag the fight out, if one were looking to put on a "worked-shoot".
Also, while Bonnar's never been truly "finished" before, it's not like he's been fighting top flight competition these past few years(aside from a young Bones) and prior to tonight, in his last ten fights, he's 5-5. Bonnar has the right to retire, but he's still a damn great gatekeeper at 205 if he chooses.

I'm still laughing at anyone who thought Bonnar could work Silva.
Every fight you hear the same stuff. Fighter x has what it takes to challenge Anderson and it never happens.
