That GIF deserved our headliner for this MMP recap (thanks Cory Braiterman for this) as it will be very rare that you will see Roy Nelson get faceplanted like that. Talk about the power that is in Mark Hunt's hands. And the hands down, walk off is simply the Super Samoan's trademark. Despite the no-namers once again the card somehow delivered in terms of finishes save for some boring point fighting and the chick fight. Anyway, it's free so let's stop the whining shall we?
This card also served as JellyBelly's rise to the top as he made some gutsy picks and topscored the event. Gone are the 2 seasons when Jelly would be in the floor and sucking with his picks. Will it continue? We shall see!
