    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.

    Dana better have given Grice his win bonus, when they announced the decision I was SHOCKED that he SOMEHOW lost, dominating first round and winning the second and there was no 10-10 nor 10-8 rounds)

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

    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.
