FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP: Holly Holm vs Germaine de Randamie
A very good, close fight that's difficult to score. But, de Randamie continued striking Holm after the end of two of the rounds and should have been deducted a point. That would have made this a draw and that would have been fairer to Holly Holm.
RESULT: Germaine de Randamie, unanimous decision.
MIDDLEWEIGHT: Anderson Silva (#7) vs Derek Brunson (#8)
I'm not sure how Silva won this. Brunson easily won the 1st and 3rd rounds with Silva taking the second. I'm glad Silva got a win before he retired, but I think he has to take this bad decision and retire with a victory. A legend of the sport, but as he said himself after the fight, he's too old for it now.
RESULT: Anderson Silva, unanimous decision.
MIDDLEWEIGHT: Ronaldo Souza (#3) vs Tim Boetsch (#13)
FINALLY! The only fight of the night to be finished and it was pretty much that simple. Souza got it to the ground, locked in the kimura and Boetsch tapped.
RESULT: Ronaldo Souza, 1st round submission.
LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT: Glover Teixeira (#3) vs Jared Cannonier (#15)
Teixeira destroyed Cannonier. Completely one-sided.
RESULT: Glover Teixeira, unanimous decision.
LIGHTWEIGHT: Dustin Poirier (#10) vs Jim Miller
I'm not sure how the judges disagreed so much on this, I had Poirier down as an easy 30-27 winner. Not sure where the 10-8 round was at any point.
RESULT: Dustin Poirier, majority decision.
WELTERWEIGHT: Randy Brown vs Belal Muhammad
Muhammad won all three rounds and I don't really understand why one of the judges gave Brown a round. The first round of this fight was very entertaining.
RESULT: Belal Muhammad, unanimous decision.
FLYWEIGHT: Wilson Reis (#5) vs Ulka Sasaki
A very close fight, second round could've gone either way, but I agree with the judges this time.
RESULT: Wilson Reis, Unanimous decision.
LIGHTWEIGHT: Nik Lentz vs Islam Makhachev
Makhachev absolutely dominated this fight, easy win, I would have given it 30-26, but I don't think I can argue with 30-25.
RESULT: Islam Makhachev, unanimous decision.
FEATHERWEIGHT: Rick Glenn vs Phillipe Nover
I understand why this was scored so closely and neither guy won all 3 rounds, even if one of the judges saw it that way. I would have edged towards Nover, but I'm not paid to be a judge.
RESULT: Rick Glenn, split decision.
EARLY PRELIMINARY CARD
WELTERWEIGHT: Ryan LaFlare vs Roan Carneiro
This was a decent fight, the judges seemed confused about how to score it, but LaFlare definitely deserved the win. Although I would give Carneiro the final round.
RESULT: Ryan LaFlare, unanimous decision.
