Just confirmed bonuses: FIGHT: Saffiedine-Lim. SUB: Doane. KO: Holloway. All winners get $50k.

Lim is backstage and basically being carried by his cornermen. Can't walk on his own to the medical tent.

@mmaencyclopedia Lim deserves a bonus, but not Saff. @danawhite needs to institute a Heart of the Night bonus. @ufc

Love guys like Lim who don't roll over. Comes out like a BEAST

— Dana White (@danawhite) January 4, 2014

I think Tarec Saffiedine might be the guy to finally amputate Robert M.F. Lawler, Esq.'s leg(s).

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 4, 2014

Historically, 19% of Tarec Saffiedine's standing strikes are aimed at the legs. That's twice the average rate.

— Fightnomics Reed (@Fightnomics) January 4, 2014

Why would he not stand up right now?

— Dana White (@danawhite) January 4, 2014

Saffiedine should hope he keeps getting headlining spots on small cards; his surgical, tactical style is so conducive to five-round success.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 4, 2014

I think Kawajiri's postfight speech was written by the guy who handled the sign language at Nelson Mandela's funeral.

— jim genia (@jim_genia) January 4, 2014

I think I've figured out how the UFC can make millions on PPV - Kawajiri the commentator.

— Bloody Elbow (@BloodyElbow) January 4, 2014

Referee Steve Perceval stands there looking right at Sean Soriano, sees him tap, does absolutely nothing and lets him get choked out. Sigh.

— Robert Sargent (@MMARising) January 4, 2014

Kawajiri rolling into the UFC like Yojimbo. Just made Soriano bend like a comma.

Luiz Dutra needs to watch the Travis Browne instructional video on how to land legal and effective elbows with your back to the cage ASAP.

Steve Perceval: putting the "ass" in UFC Fight Pass

— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) January 4, 2014

That second elbow had an arc to it which means definitionally it's not 12-6. Is Steve Perceval trying to get booed in multiple countries?

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 4, 2014

How you going to deduct TWO points for that? One point? OK. Two is overly punitive IMO. #UFC

— Mike Chiappetta MMA (@MikeChiappetta) January 4, 2014

I always knew this day would come: a Japanese journeyman nicknamed after Dave motherfucking Strasser makes his never-awaited UFC debut.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 4, 2014

Fights & french toast. MMA & mimosas. Punches & pancakes. Bacon & brawls. Sasuage & submissions. This is #UFCFightNight /morning. We dig it.

— UFC (@ufc) January 4, 2014

Chope going for that elusive "get knocked out twice in one fight" achievement.

— Tomasz J. Marciniak (@tjmarciniak) January 4, 2014

Ooh a spinning back kick to the body *fans self*

— midnite (@123midnite) January 4, 2014

Hit them in the face, hit them in the body, make them bleed and drink all the blood. Max Holloway is a reliable all-action hero in the cage.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 4, 2014

Quinn Mulhern is a solid fighter, watching him look positively terrified of Kikuno and pull guard like Nick Serra on meth is a big bum out.

— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) January 4, 2014

I'm not even mad at Wee for sitting in guard or half guard. He hasn't developed many other skills yet. What else is he supposed to do?

Since being called the next GSP, Mairbek Taisumov said he needs to take time for personal matters in between rounds @MMARoasted

— Jason Anderson (@AndersonJason15) January 4, 2014

@mikewhitmanmma Screw it, I am just going to watch with a blanket out in the front yard.

— TJ De Santis (@TJDeSantis) January 4, 2014

@MMARoasted Why are these fights called the pre-Lims and not the pre-Saffiedines? Favouritism?

— Dale (@daleantonius) January 4, 2014

Russell Doane making it rain pre-sunrise on my computer box. Finishing instincts getting me hype, even at 5 in the a.m.

— Mike Whitman (@mikewhitmanmma) January 4, 2014

First leg kick I've seen since Anderson's a week ago. I got scared as he threw it. Are we scarred for life now?

— Matt Erickson (@MMAjunkieMatt) January 4, 2014

woke up 20 minutes early for 6:30am UFC so I have time to lay in bed and think about where my life went wrong

— Chris Nelson (@3amMMA) January 4, 2014

lot of yall still sleepin. some of yall gon sleep right thru the disrespect that is kikuno on the undercard b.

— GFKonMMA (@GFKonMMA) January 4, 2014

As if it wasn't hard enough staying awake, they have Anik announcing...why not just put Jake Shields on this card? #UFC

— MMA Roasted (@MMARoasted) January 4, 2014

No 'YOOOOOOOUUUU and MEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!' It's already a great event this morning.
