  1. THErobertH says:

    uh diaz got submission of the night???

  2. Jb says:

    Sub of the night for nate

  3. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    I have always been a bigtime fan of Diaz brothers but also a fan of Jim Miller who I consider one of the hardest working fighters in MMA and prob the best sportsman in MMA. Win or lose Jim Miller is a class act and still one of the best 155ers in world. Diaz has always been tuf as hell but he has stepped up his game bigtime noone submits Jim Miller. big props for both these warriors for leaving it all in cage to night. Anyone who ever doubted that the lighter classes as being worthy to be main event have been proven wrong time and time again and tonight was no exception. Big thanks to Joe silva for matching up two top 5 guys in world.

  4. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    FOTN should have went to Belcher.

  5. Jc says:

    As if kos check v Hendricks wasn’t fight of the night

  6. AV981 says:

    I been on the Lavar Johnson bandwagon since before he was “big” Johnson. That sounds ghey…

    • Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

      Haha sounds pretty funny. Especially with Bruce Buffer screaming it at the top of lungs.

  7. Avction says:

    Back to the minors Barry, we’ve seen enough

  8. Bob Finsley says:

    Editor please help this guy out. Nate, not Nick. And Nate took submission of the night. YOu can’t give fight of the night to two different fights.

  9. Get rid of shitty writers says:

    For the love of God…. i love BJ Penn, and use to love this site…. but they have gotten some really bad writers and terrible typos all the time now!!!!!!

    • ASDF says:

      I got so much hate from ops for noting that. It just keeps showing up, and now mixing up names, and mixing up accolades. Nick vs Nate. Nate wasn’t even fighting. LOL. Two fight of the nights. Where’s sub of the night. Yea, it’s pretty bad.

      • ASDF says:

        I mean Nick wasn’t. Well, ops can make an error I suppose. How many ops proofread… Easy to make an error, but when you’re an editor you need to proofread. At least I noticed.

  10. Nick says:

    Anyone realize it says nick not nate in the second sentence

  11. Gouldx87 says:

    WHAAT you guys didnt see when Nick jumped the cage and subbed miller?

    • Grade-A says:

      lol I could just see the look on Miller’s face with two Diaz’s in the cage with him

      “Don’t be scared, homie!” hahaha
