    Henson vs Melendez II coming soon

    I wasn't too impressed with Cormier tonight. He didn't fight anything like he did against Josh Barnett

    Glad to see the Diaz brothers continue their losing streak. You know you took a beating when your corner throws in the towel.

    Good fight by Matt brown tonight.

    And I would give KO of the night to Myles Jury

    The main event delivered in a big way. That decision could have gone either way. We need a second fight to decide this.

    Was a great fight. I knew Henderson would win the decision, that's just the way it goes. You need to clearly beat the champ to win a decision.
