    I actually kinda agreed, but a lot of people don’t like clinching against the cage.

    FOTN was clearly Story and Alves, they threw down for 3 rounds, **** the cage clinching even there it was good it wasnt like the ultimate fighter where they throw a punch every 2 mins then push them against the cage, that fight was awesome, Stann and Santiago was a domination for Stann, Alves and Story was actually close!

    Fight of the night should have gone to Johnson vs Torres. Great fight. Loads of action.

    Agreed on FOTN. I was pulling for Torres but Johnson won. Good decision.

    Also agree with Torres and DJ. That is the kind of effort I like to see from people on the ground.

    I agree with that fight being fight of the night. As for the winner, I think it’s subjective. Torres did a lot on the ground as far as submission attempts, but Johnson escaped all the attempts and maintained top position. In the stand up(very limited) Johnson was getting the better of it. The issue is that the judges tend to favor the person in top position and don’t seem to respect the bottom. As a fighter knowing this, it would be wiser to stay off your back for prolonged periods of time unless you KNOW you’re going to get a submission before the fight ends. It’s a sport where points aren’t accrued as well(if any at all it seems) from the bottom. I think the decision could have gone either way depending on your perspective.

    I think Stann’s fight got it because of the Memorial Day and military thing. It was one-sided and a good finish, but by no means fight of the night. At least 2 fights were better qualified for that. Johnson/Torres(My pick) or Story/Alves.
