It's weird that they decided to televise the sparring session between Hall and Howard. On the main card too.

Hall is frustrating as hell to watch. He's really good but it's like he doesn't take it seriously or not, like he's just out there having fun. There's zero sense of urgency in him when he fights. Like he's always building up for a highlight knockout so he never really sets up much else

Great win for Michael Johnson earlier though

edit: Did Matt Brown just say Pyle is better than GSP right after he got knocked out in 20 seconds??

Side of his head was kinda mangled but yeah i thought for sure his forehead would be sliced open.

Gotta give Faber a lot of credit though. The guy's been ranked #2 all year and even though there's no chance of him moving up anymore he's still taking fights against fighters who aren't even ranked top 10 (or even top 20 for that matter). It's risky as hell on his part but its still admirable in a sport where guys are so hesitant to take fights that endanger their spot.

Not a good look Reem. Win a fight, test positive for roids, come back clean and get KO'd twice in a row.

Faber's elite man. Well-rounded, dangerous in all areas. Unfortunately for him, he will likely never win the title with guys like Aldo, Cruz (Barao on the come up).

Alcantara was a very dangerous opponent, and Faber manhandled him.

Maybe Overeem expects everyone to be 100% mentally checked out like Lesnar was in their fight. "Why aren't there guys just quitting too?"

Shogun-Sonnen... damn. I like both and wish neither had to lose. Shogun's shoddy TDD might be on display here.

That was so impressive.

I believe Overeem gassed out after dropping those bombs on Hapa, which led him to drop his hands down & Hapa capitalized on it. But at the same time, his ego was there & that led him to keep moving forward with his hands down, & thought that Hapa was still rocked.

EGO.
