  2. the original steve says:

    mike easton vs jared papazian was fight of the night idc what anyone says. and bary was knockout of the night that one is debatable though

  3. Jason says:

    thats bs. Barry vs Moorecraft was good but def not fotn that shouldve gone to easton vs papazian easily. and sub of the night although millers was good neer choked a game ludwig unconscious. miller got the king of tapping out to tap out. the dentist shouldve taken home sub of the night. poor form dana.

    • cole says:

      Haha those little guys never got close to finishing eachother nor did they have the power to they need to kick everybody under 145 out its like watching junior high kids fight I know plenty of 12 year olds bigger than they are and more athletic

  4. DAMN! says:

    Guillard vs Cowboy!

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      If Guillard fights Cerrone he will be receiving his walking papers. He is losing his “It” factor.

      • bcuz says:

        guillard would beat cerrones ass…….cerrone would not be able to take him down and melvins stand up is better. jim miller is bad ass with a good chin not much guys could take those shots

        • DAMN! says:

          Either way, it either is going to be a FOTN… MAKE IT HAPPEN!

        • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

          Cerrone also has a good chin, he stumbled around for 3 rds in his last fight. His striking is more diverse than Melvin’s and he can pull off a rear naked choke just like Guillard’s last two opponents.

  5. Dawson says:

    shouldve been: Easton vs papazian fight of the night
    Sub of the Night: Neer
    KO of the night: Barry
    whoever chose the bonuses i will slap them with my keyboard! muahaha! jk

  6. JMad says:

    That blank stare on Melvin’s face after he lost worries me.

  7. joey says:

    JOSH NEER should have gotten submission of the night!!

  8. Koshchek is a felcher says:

    Josh Queer got lucky and I’m sorry any guy who tattoo’s his last name just above his ass likes getting it pounded.
