There's been a plethora of KO's already and there's still a few killers left on the card.



Looking forward to Anthony Smith KTFO of Lombard.

Didn't Lombard look.super soft, compared to his usual self at the weigh in? That poor gas tank and Lionhearts length, reach, and ability to scrap should cause the 40 yr old Lombsrd Problems. Smith is riding 10of 11 and only lost to a grappler.



Me too. I really hope he gets a big KO. Never been a fan of Lombard. Plus I'm having a crazy run on Draft Kings right now with Smith and Perry left. Would be nice to win an extra paycheque or close to it

Last fight was a good one though. Enjoyable to watch. Nice win for gillespie.



He's improving each time out. I don't think he's ready for the wolves yet, but he deserves a step up.

Well you have av good chance of getting 2 1st Round Ko's.

Reyes is good but late notice and a real LW. I think you're safe there. With Lombard you never know butbin like Smith for sure here.

It was there all night but Smith finally got the KO. Nice win for his record.

And on a side note, let's get Paul Felder back on the mic for some more events. He's pretty good and there's a big hole to fill with Stann gone.

Me neither. Fun to watch though. Would be fun to see him lose again too.

Rockhold won via submission, not ko/tko which the playground has it marked.

Nice, right on top of it. You guys are good. Idk what I would have done without those extra 2 points.

Everyone at my place was saying tko, but I said he tapped then some started calling Branch a bitch.

I hate watching fights with those types of people.
At that position Rockhold had him in he just saved some brain cells. He would've eaten another 15 shots or so before the ref would've stopped it. Or a possible choke. Either way Branch was done at that point.

But leading up to that I thought Branch was doing well. Gave him the 1st and it was similar to what Rockhold did to Weidman. Made a mistake and he took full advantage of it.

I only got 5pts on that fight though. I though Branch was gonna last all 5 Rounds.

I think we can expect big things from Usman and Gillespie . Love to see Spitz vs Sherman as well

Those same people were saying Branch was a beast when he was bringing the fight to Rockhold in the 1st round... it can be a little annoying watching fights with uneducated people who flip flop. The way Rockhold was controlling him during the gnp there was no way Branch had a chance but they still didn't get it. They feel if you tap to strikes you're a bitch... I'm sure Rockhold would have them tapping as well to strikes (I shouldn't be talking about some of my acquaintances like this, lol)

I was thinking Rockhold either by decision or late finish, I was leaning more towards sub since Branch has good hands and Rockhold has a good ground game... that's not how I expected the sub to come though. The ref probably should have stopped the fight before Branch had to tap or go out.
