Jimi Manuwa. Ric Flair. Same thing.

OK, Gustafsson's front flip looked like the kinda shit I do on the living room floor for lulz, but that knee + hockey fight punches were A+.

Melvin Guillard could use a kleenex sponsorship

Did Melvin Guillard just try to pull a Chill Dawg?

— Ben Fowlkes (@benfowlkesMMA) March 8, 2014

Nice try, Melvin Guillard. You're not Jamie Varnering your way out of this.

— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) March 8, 2014

Prediction: Guillard puts more effort into post-fight talk than in the rest of the fight. #UFCLondon

Gunnar is AWESOME!!!!

Neil Seery looks like he rides a bike with a basket on it, and rings his bell at the hillside sheep he passes, waving the whole time.

"One Punch" Pickett has more submissions than knockouts. "2 Tap" Seery has more knockouts than submissions.

Gunnar Nelson was medically cleared to fight despite a massive deficiency in fucks to give. Inspiring.

Gunnar Nelson's smile got you feeling all lightheaded, butterflyish? Make sure you got a Gunnar Nelson condom, perv.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) March 8, 2014

@TheTomasRios Agreed. Just worry about guys with little KO power throwing single strikes trying to MacGyver guys into clever takedowns.

There's a Frenchman-surrender-guillotine joke in here somewhere.

— RJ Clifford (@RJcliffordMMA) March 8, 2014

Do you think if you put "Ilir Latifi" into a Swedish-English translator it comes up "Patrick Cummins?"

Silva starting to look like Big Fatty Face from that DirecTV commercial.

So far it's been 3 fights and I've seen poking, slapping and Green Hair...Am I watching fighting or a rave? #UFC

— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) March 8, 2014

I had sushi for breakfast and I'm watching UFC at lunch time. I don't care about propriety. All rules are out the window. Society is dead.

That exchange at the end of the fight reminded me of the battles I had with my older sister when I was like 6. I was ahead of the game

— Damon Martin (@DamonMartin) March 8, 2014

That last flurry, if you can even call it that, basically looked like a couple of five year olds fighting over a G.I. Joe. Sad.

I'm rating Danny Mitchell's mullet at 3.5 out of 5 Mike Pyles.

Cheesecake Assassin + Mullet = The UFC Fight Pass prelims!

— Rob Tatum (@RobTatumMMA) March 8, 2014

Totally agree. Great idea. RT @davedoylemma: I'm kind of digging the British announcers, comes off like a fresh coat of paint.

— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) March 8, 2014

Good win for Gaudinot, but did Harris not know he was capable of that? Gaudinot's only won w/ that move 2X and threatened w/ it many more.
