Quick Notes On UFC 215

It's not the first time this has happened, and it won't be the last, but hearing a bunch of drunk fans boo fighters looking for the right tactical moment to unleash remains a mildly depressing aspect of watching fights. I wanted Nunes and Shevchenko to unload on each other, but if either one tried and missed, they would have gotten faceplanted.

Dos Anjos' beatdown and submission was a hell of a thing to watch, though. I feel like Neil Magny's not quite as good as his ranking implied--before last night, he was tied for sixth with Donald Cerrone, and I'll take Cerrone in a fight between those two eleven times out of ten--but you're not supposed to walk into a fight with a seven-inch height advantage and get waxed that badly.

Last note: The replay of Sarah Moras' armbar on Ashlee Evans-Smith isn't as gruesome as the article headline makes it sound, but listen to the post-fight interview.

"It looks like you dislocated the arm."
"I hope so."
"I don't think you're supposed to say that out loud."
