Tim Elliot vs. Ali Bagautinov
Man, must be tough growing up in Dagestan if all these dudes are prowling the streets.— Shaun Al-Shatti (@shaunalshatti) November 17, 2013
Sure, Tim Elliot lost this fight, but I'd hire his cornerman to come to my house each morning and yell, "You look beautiful!" at me.— Chad Dundas (@chaddundas) November 17, 2013
In Dagestan, American face punch you.— Luke Thomas (@SBNLukeThomas) November 17, 2013
Elliot walks in, gets tagged hard, ducks out....and Rogan says "Elliott is pushing the pace." WHAT ARE THEY WATCHING?— Jonathan Snowden (@mmaencyclopedia) November 17, 2013
Josh Koscheck vs. Tyron Woodley
KO OF THE NIGHT RIGHT THERE OH SHIT. GOOD SHIT @TWooodley #UFC167— Marcelino Evil (@KCBanditMMA) November 17, 2013
That was brutal. Absolutely brutal.— Jeremy Botter (@jeremybotter) November 17, 2013
Koscheck's entire striking arsenal is a right hand and Woodley exploited his defensive frailties.— Mookie Alexander (@mookiealexander) November 17, 2013
Rory MacDonald vs. Robbie Lawler
Robbie Lawler entered the UFC having lost 3 of 4. Now he's a top-5 WW. This sport is crazy.— Shaun Al-Shatti (@shaunalshatti) November 17, 2013
Robbie Lawler: Comeback fighter of 2013? I mean, his only real competition there is Doug "The Rhino" Marshall.— CagePotato.com (@cagepotatomma) November 17, 2013
What a comeback story Robbie Lawler is. If Matt Brown didn't exist, he'd be the comeback story of the welters.— MMAFighting.com (@MMAFighting) November 17, 2013
Robbie Lawler, an unlikely candidate for Comeback Fighter of the Year and Upset of the Year author. What a marvellous sport this is.— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) November 17, 2013
Biggest lock on the whole card. Love Chael as a guy, but I don’t think his mind is on fighting anymore. Don’t blame him. He’s great on tv— Matt Brown (@MattBrownM2) November 17, 2013
Congrats to my boy Rashad. And always love for the gangster from West Linn, Chael Sonnen. 2 good guys of the sport.— Ryan Loco (@RyanLoco) November 17, 2013
I figured Evans would win a tepid decision but he was in full tear the club up mode. Makes the Rogerio loss all the crazier as time goes by.— Jordan Breen (@jordanbreen) November 17, 2013
Evans took Sonnen down, and it was clinical from there. He flattened Sonnen out and took him out with good old fashioned G&P.— MMAFighting.com (@MMAFighting) November 17, 2013
look at chael flailin on the replay yall— GFKonMMA (@GFKonMMA) November 17, 2013
