    That's disgusting! Should have been a point at a minimum.

    Great showing from Jake. Looked much bigger and stronger than last time out. It wasn't without a few hairy moments, but that was what should be a good win over a guy who is a tough out.

    What a performance from Mathews! By far the best performance of his career.

    I’m not shitting on him, I don’t like the guy but regardless of my feelings on him he deserves whatever criticism is leveled at him for ruining an already ruined event. Not like he’s never had a “mishap” before either. Dudes been pinged for drugs, twice dragged between rounds to gain an advantage, he’s no angel.

    That eye gouge is one of the dirtiest things I've seen in mma. Accidents happen when you throw a punch but not on the ground when you're about to be submitted.

    How'd him missing weight by 1 kg ruin the event?

    Surely you weren't putting any significance on this interim title fight?

    The UFC ruined this event by booking it the way they did.

    Also, he was cleared due to tainted supplement. Is he a drug cheat? Maybe, but that's the same answer you could give for the rest of the roster.

    Hence ruining an already ruined event.

    I don’t really care but defending a dude who has at best a “chequered” history and at worst a “cheating” history because you think the average bloke couldn’t shave 20 pounds in 4 weeks is a bizarre argument. He’s a professional fighter taking a fight on a months notice and he missed weight. It’s his fault.

    Deceptively agile for his frame Bam Bam.

    Undercard was mostly underwhelming but main card has been very entertaining (even taking away the home town boys getting up)

    Giving him the benefit of the doubt over something that he hasn't done before is hardly defending all the past sins of his that you keep bringing up. Not one of them influenced his most recent weight cut either.

    Can I expect you'll be tuning out of the Hunt fight? He got arrested in the early 2000's you know. I'm sure he's sat on the stool a bit too long once or twice or inadvertantly eyepoked a guy.

    Too many corners seem to have poor advice between rounds.

    I hate seeing Hunt get wrestle****ed, but he's had the last 5 years to improve the TDD and he just hasn't.
