Huge thanks to Alexis Davis and Sugar Rashad Evans, who both made me sweat but UNFITCHED my financial problems this weekend.

Nelson getting tuned up by Miocic's long, accurate punches. Fight is a PSA on dangers of taking short notice fights after you just fought.

Jimmo vs. Pokrajac is the kind of fight that makes me question my choices in life when it comes to covering MMA. I shoulda got my GED.

Final FightMetric stats show Shields went 0-18 in takedown attempts against Woodley. Do you personally score the agression or the defense?

Pat Barry now has had an 11-fight UFC career without winning consecutive UFC fights. Only Wanderlei Silva tops that (12 UFC fights).

I love the camera shots with Joe Silva in the background. It's like Shang Tsung watching the Mortal Kombat tournament. #UFC161
