    Ken Stone's brother, Keith, was reported as saying "That's not smooth".

    Nombre should be cut. That was an absolutely disgraceful performance he put on. He was absolutely milking that shot to the "back to the head." None of those shots were anywhere near the back of the head and he was clearly faking an injury. Good riddance

    Yeah I had a good feeling Nobre was getting the axe once I read Dws Twitter account, he was furious. Good riddance no one wants that shit.

    I still believe those two shots after the elbow, struck the back of the head. But in my opinion they didn't appear as damaging as he made them seem.

    At first glance, yes, it did look that way but if you watch the replay from another angle you can clearly see that those elbows touched the ear. He was faking it. That shit may fly in soccer but there's no place for it in MMA.

    I know the elbow was legit, it was the two strikes afterwards that are in question. To me anyways.

    Ok, I just rewatched the fight and there was one shot at the very end that might have hit the back of the head but it looked to me that mid punch Alcantara noticed his head had turned and pulled the punch. There wasn't much on it at all. In any case, it looked like Nombre turned away as the punch was coming down so it shouldn't have been called an illegal blow. Alcantara should appeal.

    Why they cut Janousek if he never fought?
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
