UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir went down tonight from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

    Who do you guys think should’ve won Submission of the Night?

    • Bees says:

      Sass. Obviously.

      • Clay says:

        Na struves made more of an impression I think. I called that fight by the way. Everyone was talkin shit saying Struve was gonna get knocked the fuck out.

        • Thom says:

          same here, people gettin all hyped up on Lavar probably hadn´t seen his fights outside of the UFC… The guy is extremely dangerous BUT his ground game is extremely poor, Struve didn’t even have that armbar locked in yet, Lavar could’ve backed out of it but started punching Struve which just shows you that Lavar doesn’t have the Jiu Jitsu skills to hang with guys like Struve on the ground… I’d say let him fight Matt Mitrione next, maybe even Kongo.

  2. Sick Brah says:

    Nice. But no live post fight conference?

  3. Numba1Ghani says:

    what a dopeass ppv every single fight was good

  4. lex walker says:

    I’m so happy dan won

  5. 11bangbang says:

    I still can’t believe Mike Browns last 3 fights haven’t been televised. I’ve followed him for years since his time with Team Elite in Massachusetts. Former WEC champ that smashed Faber twice and still no TV time. Kind of crazy.

  6. Xaninho says:

    Great card,great fights! Even a few surprising upsets.

  7. Hugh L says:

    This was an amazing card that didn’t disappoint, well the only thing that disappointed me was Mir’s performance. But back to what I’m going at this was a great card they should do this atleast once a year, and even try and do it with other weight classes. Yet nothing will truly compete with the HWs

  8. DMAC says:

    Should’ve gave Varner a bonus for performing like a stud last night, I’m glad he’s back on track he’s exciting to watch and talks a good game.
